Stampin’ Up! Fashion Inspired Petite Pairs

I'm getting ready to head to the Founder's Circle retreat in St. George, UT this Wednesday.  It's a special reward from Stampin' Up! for demonstrators who excelled in sales, recruiting and leadership this past year.  I'm so fortunate to be included and ready to be pampered!  Meanwhile, I have a fabulous week planned for you on my blog with card ideas, inspiration and two new video tutorials!


  • Stampin up bigz lattice die big shot blossom bouquet triple layer punch card idea Need I explain the connection to my fashion inspiration?  It was fun playing with Brushed Silver, Lucky Limeade, Concord Crush and a bit of bling!
  • The Stampin' Up! Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds the perfect flavor for the card and mimics the pattern on the skirt.
  • Did you notice the little flower on the tag?  I cropped Lucky Limeade card stock with the  Lattice Ribbon Border Punch and did a little "surgery" with my Paper Snips to emancipate the flower.  Cool new use!
    • Stampin up tag punch petit pairs rubber stamp birthday cardOpen sesame!  The beauty of the Stampin' Up! Petite Pairs rubber stamp set is that there is a coordinating sentiment for the interior of any card.
