Oooooo, how I love the new Melon Berry from Papertrey Ink!! That is my card base today and the button is one of the new Melon Berry vintage buttons that Papertrey Ink is now is a girl to save any money??!!

Today's Way to Use It Challenge was to find crafty ways to use your iron!! Wow, did I groan when I read that. Where the heck IS my iron??!!

Angelnorth, the guest hostess, gave some examples, and I chose to use the wax paper resist tutorial.

Instead of scrunching up the wax paper as in the tutorial, I saw this card, and decided I would use my Cuttlebug folder too!

I ran the wax paper through my Cuttlebug in the Stylized Flowers embossing folder. Then I followed the tutorial using my glossy cardstock and embossed waxed paper.

I sponged Papertrey Ink Spring Moss ink over the glossy paper and my Stylized Flowers started to show up beautifully!

Then I just cut it up to use on my card, which has a history of its own, because of a small blunder! When I was stamping the sentiment from Friends Centers, Cornish Heritage Farms, I stamped it upside down....crap. So that is why it is sort of the same layout as yesterday's blog hop card.....

Ah, well........Hope you have a good day and stay safe.........I really have GOT to clean my stamping room so I can get some projects started finished!!
