  • Stampin up presto patterns designer paper 2 Presto Change-O!  I swiped a sponge dipped in Always Artichoke ink over Presto Patterns Specialty Designer Series Paper (Summer Mini Catalog).  The pretty script "magically" peeks through.  Much quicker and easier than heat embossing with gorgeous results.
  • Have you discovered the Stampin' Up! Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper (Summer Mini Catalog)?  It's loaded with small prints that make perfect backgrounds (like this sweet yellow gingham).
  • Diggin' the butterfly?  The Punched Posies hostess level 2 stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalog "spoke to me" the minute I first laid eyes on it.  I adore stamps that coordinate with my collection of punches.  It's free with a $300 customer or workshop product order.  Click for Stampin' Up!

  1. Beautiful card. The taffeta ribbon was a great choice for this card. I love how the dsp turned out.

  2. What a nice card, it is a new take to the vintage look… Love it!

  3. What I love the most about this card is the WW Ribbon. About the Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper; I looked in the mini catalog and there is no pic of it or it does not tell you what colors it comes in. Can you tell me?
