Floral Boutique Scraps

Hello Stampers!

It’s pouring here in San Antonio.  It makes for perfect stamping weather.  (YAY!)

Once again, I have an excessive amount of card stock and designer series paper scraps.   I combined the gold pattern from Pop of Pink with various Floral Boutique patterns. I added a strip of Gold Glimmer Paper paper and a Metallic Enamel Heart for a bit of sparkle.  Using Layering Squares Framelits, I topped the strips of DSP with a Night of Navy frame.  The simple sentiment is from Happy Happenings.

I added a few more Enamel Shapes for the card and narrowed the frame slightly.  The sentiment is from the beautiful Lovely Amazing You photopolymer stamp set which was recently featured in the Stampin’ Up! specials.  I hope you took advantage of those terrific sale prices!

Trio of Tags – Pals Paper Arts


Hello Stampers!

Peggy Noe, with the Pals Paper Arts Design Team, has chosen a beautiful trio of In Colors for this week’s challenge.  I decided the palette deserved a trio of Holiday tags.  The Flirty Flamingo adds a vibrant and alternative to the traditional Christmas red.

The trees were stamped from Peaceful Pines then cropped using Perfect Pines bundle (both sets featured in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog).  The scalloped patterned tree (which I love!) is stamped in Mint Macaroon.  I alternated the bottom layer using each of the PPA colors.  The gold star from the Metallic Enamel Shapes provide the trees’ sparkle.


I love the Silky Taffeta Ribbon Combo pack (141989), a gift from Lisa Pretto! (Shown in Emerald Envy).


You can visit the Pals Paper Arts site to check out the design team’s creations and to play along.  Thanks for stopping by my happy place!  Hugs M

Thankful Grateful Blessed!

Hello!  Me again.  I know:  two posts in one day??? Crazy right.  I’m trying to get caught up on my blog before my life gets even crazier!

The sentiment from Paisleys & Posies is becoming my favorite as is the spray of twinkle from  Star of Light.  While I am certain the sentiment was intended for a Thanksgiving card and the twinkle for Christmas, I’ve combined the two, along with Pop of Pink designer series paper, for a bright Thank You note.


Thanks again for visiting!  Hugs!
