PPABadge Here's a modern spin on one of the new single stamps, Hello Blossoms, from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog.  It's highlighted by this week's Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA92), a powerful color combination of Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade.

Check out the PPA Design Team card ideas this week along with a fabulous contribution from our Celebrity Guest Stamper Colleen Dietrich.

Need a fun new way to use the Petal Card Punch?  My friend Kadie Labadie turned me on to the idea above, which I demonstrate in today's 1 Minute to "WOW" Video Tutorial.  However, she says she can't take credit.  Like many of us, she saw it on the internet but isn't 100% sure where. 


  • Stampin up hello blossoms circle punches thank you card idea The look of the same polka dot designer series paper pattern in different colors is so splashy and clean.
  • I'm digging the Pretty Postage rubber stamp set and Postage Stamp Punch from the Summer Mini Catalog.
  • I popped only the two large Poppy Parade circles up on Stampin' Dimensionals for a staggered "garden" effect.
  • The flower stems were isolated using my Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Marker.

IT'S ABOUT TIME!    My new on-line video class is in the works and will be available starting next week.  Stay tuned.  Hint:  Flower Fest stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalog will be the star of the show!

NEW VIDEO TOMORROW!  I'll be giving a video demonstration of one of my favorite new tools from the Summer Mini Catalog.  Follow me on Twitter and you can watch NOW!

    Love what you did to the flowers! Then, your video was wonderful and what a fun holder! You are so right about pushing on the circle part of the punch – I made 20 boxes – all of the fold lines were A-ok! I found the cutest little tiny fuzzy chick to fit in the boxes and they were a hit! Thanks for sharing your talent with us, Mary!
