Thinking of You (and of brand new paper!)

Sale-a-Bration is such a great time of the year - With every $50 you spend in Stampin Up merchandise, you get a free stamp set!  I've taken advantage of this offer multiple times over the last few months *hangs head in shame*, and one of the sets I received is one that I honestly hadn't really considered until I realized I could get it for free. That set is....

Three Little Words! The stylized flower jives really well with some of the new Paisley Petals DSP. This paper isn't yet available to the public (but it will be soon!) so until you can get your hot little hands on it, I hope you enjoy this sneak peak.


I adore this paisley print.  It's got a whole slew of colors in it, which means it can go with lots of the colors you may already have in your stash.  With this card, I chose to use Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, and Soft Suede.  (To see what this same paper looks like with River Rock and Peach Parfait, be sure to take a gander at my Nontraditional Baby Shower Card).

The flowery background is the floral image from Three Little Words, stamped repeatedly with Versamark ink.  I used the Scallop Ribbon border punch to separate the paper from the cardstock (this is a fantastic shortcut if you don't have the right color ribbon for your project) and the Flower is layers of 1 3/4 scallop circle punchouts in Not Quite Navy and a baja breeze boho blossom punchout (say that 3 times fast ^.^) fastened together with an Antique Brad.  Finally, the sentiment (also from Three Little Words) is stamped in Not Quite Navy ink.

Throughout the next month, i'll be featuring more projects using this dreamy new paper collection, as well as an even dreamier new stamp set that coordinates with the also-dreamy Decorative Label Punch.

  2. Thanks, Patti! At first i was thrown for a loop because some of the patterns seemed really large-scale for a card, but I'm getting used to it ;-)

  3. What a beautiful card Michey. Love the color combo and flower and I really like the Three Little Wordsvstamp set. I think it's one of those underrated and underused sets that adds a lot of pizzazz. TFS!
