Pals Guest Stamper Carla B.

Ribbon Rose 3-13 Mary's Sunday Feature (3)
Talk about having a signature style!  Carla Bazenhow, of my Stampin' Pretty Pals, exemplifies feminine, chic and beautiful in her card making. She has a way with  flowers that makes you swoon.  Be sure to visit her Carla's Scraps Blog for details on the ribbon rose and her other other amazing flower tutorials.

JOIN THE STAMPIN' PRETTY CONVERSATION ON FACEBOOK!  We had lots of great suggestions and solutions on my last topic:  Clear Mount Stamps and Blocks–A Not So Sticky Situation.  RESOLVED!

My new Facebook topic was inspired by a question from Stampin' Pretty reader Dana:

One of my biggest pet peeves as a stamper is finding an efficient way of storing my scraps.  I haven't found one yet.  Do you have any suggestions?

Be sure to follow me on Facebook (click the "like" button if it's your first time) and learn my response  to Dana along with ideas from other stampers.  Everyone is welcome to join in the discussion!

HAVE A LITTLE FUN ON TWITTER:  After 72 votes on my Twtpoll, Old Olive (15 votes) followed by Baja Breeze (12) were the favorites of the Stampin' Up! color choices (if you HAD to pick one just one–oh, horrors).   Get my regular Stampin' Pretty Twitter Tips.

  7. How did she get the pink bling? Did she color the rhinestones with a sharpie? Or do our Marvelous Markers work?

  8. I love the combination of gray and soft pink. Beautiful

  9. Carla, that is so beautiful! I’ve always loved pink and gray together and this really is so pretty!
