Stampin’ Up! Painted Petals and Stamping and Blogging

Hi Everyone,

Back from Leadership Conference in Orlando this past weekend. Had a Blast with old friends and some new. Look who I ran into!imageimage

Michelle Last and Caroline can der Straatan and Erna Logtenberg! It was so exciting meeting these fabulous ladies! Hugs to you all! Miss you already!

Now it’s time for another Stamping and Blogging Blog Hop…hope you will hop along. Here is the sketch

SB 90 Feb 4

…and my card….

s&b90The base of the card is Whisper White and the Mat is Whisper White as well. I did emboss it with the lovely Spring Flowers Embossing Folder and left about 3/4” space at the bottom to stamp a greeting.

The next mat is 2 1/4 x 5 in Pear Pizzazz and the White mat is 2 x 4 7/8

Do you like how I stamped the mat to make my own Designer Paper? Easily achieved by using the stripped stamp in the Painted Petals Set. I first stamped vertically in Rose Red and then Horizontally in Pear Pizzazz. Pretty striking I think. Nice pop of color. I added a few strip of our cotton ribbon in the Pear the then stamped my image and cut out with the Circles Framelits. Here is a close up of my homemade designer paper…


Supplies needed:

I hope you enjoyed seeing my card today. Please hop on over to see what the rest of the design team has done. I have a feeling you will love them.
