Stampin' Up! is Moving Forward

The Moving Forward stamp set will retire at the end of May.  I draw your attention to this set because it is so Stinkin' CUTE!!!!   I also think it's a Bargain! 
Since it is in the very back of the catalog,  I worry you might miss it.

Did you know, that with each purchase of the Moving Forward Stamp Set, 
Stampin' Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities?

To showcase this set I played along with the
2013 Thursday Challenges-015 

And the

Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (118309) was used to highlight the front wheel.

When you need a hole in the center of such a small's best to punch the hole first
....THEN punch around the hole.
Like this!

Did you notice that the greeting is missing from under this Bicycle?? 


The greeting is placed below the polka dot paper.  Wanna know how I did that?  I turned a 7 piece stamp set into a TEN piece stamp set.

After I placed the sticker on the 3 large images.....I realized I could just SNIP right between the greeting and the image. 

With the clean straight cut you can still place them back together easily and use them as intended. But here is the added bonus! This allows you to use a different ink color on the greeting AND it also allows you to use any image with any greeting in this set or from another set.
This makes Moving Forward an even better bargain! 

 You can quickly had cut the tiny bird and prop him up on a dimensional.  
Don't you love the little motion line.  (Try this stamp behind your Bitty Butterfly punch for an 
extra dab of Cute!)  

 Do you recognize the Polka Dot Paper??  It is retired, but you can still get the Digital Download and print any one of these lovely patterns!!  This is a GREAT selection.
