How About Some Guidelines?

How about some Guidelines? I have been loving PTI's new Giga Guidelines. So much fun to play with and so easy to use. I also like mixing them up with original guidelines and Guidelines 2. So much you can do with these little guys. On this card I started with a piece of rustic cream cardstock. I drew one inch gridlines in with a pencil because I wanted the pattern to be straight. I stamped the dark chocolate stamp first and then went back with the same stamp (but smaller version) and stamped the spring moss design. I love the way it came out. I added a few rhinestones in the centers. I adhered my pp to my spring moss base and lined the edge with cream twill. Next I used Waltzingmouse's No. 4 labels stamp to stamp my dark chocolate which I then cut out with my spellbinder nestie. I stamped the sentiment from Giga in Cream and added a prima flower with a spring moss button. Thats it! All done. I still have a good half sheet of this paper left so you will probably see it again. I also have a few more Giga projects for you provided I find some blogging time over the next few days. Thanks for stopping by and big thanks to those who leave me comments. Seriously, I am not lying when I say they make my day!

Last month I said I didn't need Giga Guidelines, but as is usual, as I see more projects, I've changed my mind. I think I Guidelines two needs a companion.
