This is one of those cards that you make for someone special – a friend who has a heart of gold, is in your Stampin’ Up! team, is very supportive and brings you cookies and cakes when she visits!

I wanted to showcase this gorgeous paper in a recent class and here is the card we all made…………………
September 17th was the date for Cindy’s Corner’s 2nd Stampin; Getaway ~ a whole day of paper crafting fun, where we made card sets, 3D gift items and a cute home decor framed art piece. I will share these projects in coming posts but I wanted to share one of the pillow gifts that each attendee received.
Today I am playing along with Pootles color challenge 012. We were challenged to create a card using Tip Top Taupe, Flirty Flamingo and Mint Macaron. These are all current In-colors and while I really like them all, it had not occurred to me to use them together but along with the Paisley and Posies stamp set…. they really work! Continue reading
Wow, I can’t even tell you the last time the Stampin’ Up! Clearance rack got updated, but while we were sleeping they went ahead and added a bunch of lovely stuff ~ punches, ribbons, stamp sets, embellishments, embossing folders, framelits……….
