Calypso Coral Blooms


Today I tried the Bloom by Bloom stamp set and I am in love. I used Calypso Coral on this version, I can't wait to try lots of other color combos. I made this a Birthday card, but this beautiful bloom would also work on a Sympathy card or a card just for mom. The Rectangular Stitched Framelits made it easy for me to cut the two pieces for card front and the stitching added a special touch.

Do you have a favorite Stampin' Up! paper pack? Well yes, I love them all but my very fav and the one I will miss the most when the new paper packs come out in the new annual catalog is Share What You Love. The paper is slightly heavier so I can use it for gift boxes as well as for cards. Four of the designs have a pearlized finish. Of those 4 designs, the paper I used in this card is my absolutely favorite. And because I was loving the pearlized look, I added one of the pearlized doilies.

Hello Cupcake in Gorgeous Grape


I needed a card to send to someone who is in the business of selling cupcakes - I think this fits the bill. My friend Jessica shared a cupcake card, I made some changes to her card idea. I liked the card so much, I am making more with a birthday greeting inside. If you want to make this card too, check out my supply list and directions.
