  1. I love the idea of stamping this design on patterened paper. Wish I remembered to do it more often. Unusual color combo, very interesting.

  2. What a simple stunning look! Love the colours!

  3. I love it Mary. I have stamped on pattern paper and it does look nice. SU has a stamp that is a bunny that looks really cool stamped on pattern paper. You have great ideas. I love the colors too!!!!

    I guess b/c the base of the card is so dark, how do you sign the card. I wasn’t sure how you signed it and the ink show up? I didn’t know if you put a piece of lighter card stock in the inside (“a box”…ha ha). I have wondered on cards that have a darker base how people do it. Hope this makes sense….

  5. Dear Mary,

    Your emails are a delight! After a hard day at work it makes me smile to open my email and look at your beautiful cards or the cards of your guest stampers. I know it must be time consuming to keep up with the postings but it is inspiring to new demonstrators like me and I thank you!


  6. So classy Mary, as always, you are something else!

  7. Wow! This card looks amazing! I love what you did with the flowers!

  8. Love it Mary! The combo of the colors and accents is dynamite.

  9. This is just simply beautiful Mary. What a great idea…I never thought to stamp on DSP! I need some creative coaching! LOL

  10. hi, Mary.

    Love the card sample. It catches the eye and holds you
    there. Wow!!!!!!!!!!

    thanks for the inspiration.

  11. Stephanie Daughtrey

    I love it Mary…I have this set…I just might CASE. Question…Do you have a box on the inside to write in? Do you use a white gel pen? Just curious…

    Miss Steph . . . I’m not 100% sure what you are asking. I have and use a white gel pen . . . but not on this card. Hugs, M

  12. I just love this card. It is so crisp, clean and bright. Really nice combo.
