Lacy & Lovely with a Modern Spin

Stampin up stampinup lacy & lovely pretty order online card ideas mojo monday demonstrators circle punch
Color can change the entire mood of a card or take a stamp set from traditional to retro.  I used Summer Starfruit, Coastal Cabana (new!) and Real Red to give today’s card and the Lacy & Lovely stamp set a blast of modern style.

This week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO296) was the perfect creative launching pad!


  • Meet your new paper crafting BFF, Stampin’ Up! Candy Dots.  They come in all the Stampin’ Up! core colors (Brights, Regals, Subtles, Neutrals) and adhere instantly as a stick on embellishment or can be dressed up with coordinating silver brads (sold separately, #132293).

  • Lacy & Lovely stamp set loves Stampin’ Up! circle punches, including the  2 1/2″, 1 3/4″ and 1 3/8″.
  • I paper snipped the flower and popped it up on a couple Stampin’ Dimensionals for 3-D vavoom!
