Hello everyone! I was looking at the beautiful, glittery Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper the other day and realized we only have a few more weeks to enjoy this beautiful paper! Once the Occasions Mini Catalog retires on April 30th, it won't be available any more. Oh how I wish Stampin' Up! would carry it over into the new catalog, but I know they won't. All the more reason to enjoy it now -- it's not just for Valentine's Day, you know!
Look at this beautiful card that I made with it and the Vintage Vogue Stamp Set (another winner from the Occasions Mini Catalog). I used this week's Inspiration in Action Weekend Sketch for this very feminine, soft card. The beautiful embossed and glittered brocade print on the paper works beautifully with this classic stamp set.
The colors for this card are Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa and just a hint of Regal Rose. Accessories include the Eyelet Border Punch, 5/8" Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, Chocolate Chip Corduroy Brads and the Finial Press Impression Folder and Big Shot. After stamping the flowers (using the Rock & Roll technique with Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose) and cutting them out, I ran them through the Big Shot to emboss them and look how wonderful that little bit of extra texture looks! The flowers are attached using Stampin' Dimensionals!
So what do you think? Sending Love specialty Designer Series Paper -- it's not just for Valentines, is it?
I would love to see what you create this week using the Inspiration in Action Sketch. You've got until noon on Wednesday to go to THIS original post and leave your name and the location of your project!
