  • I stamped “off” the Basic Gray–meaning I stamped it first on scratch paper and then stamped my Whisper White card stock to get a softer, lighter image.
  • Each flower center gets a little bling using Stampin’ Up! Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details.  Woo hoo!  It made the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog Carryover List.
  • My color scheme was inspired by these three couches.  Fun, yes?Stampin up stampinup stamp it pretty spring saleabration catalogs demonstrator order card ideas
