A Rewind of Yesterday’s Post!

Unfortunately, Typepad, my blogging platform, had issues yesterday and many of you didn’t see my Back to Black Designer Series Paper sneak peek card.  So I’m reposting it today and have my fingers crossed that the Typepad issues have resolved.  Thanks for your patience and emails.  Sometimes technology just isn’t my BFF!

When I saw Modern Medley Designer Series Paper show up on the Stampin’ Up! Retiring Accessories List (it’s still available but only while supplies last), I was hopeful that something just as classy and sophisticated would appear in the 2014-2015 Annual Catalog.  With Back to Black Designer Series Paper, it DID!

This week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO346) offers a simple design with lots of possibilities.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS.  All sneak peek products are available for customer purchase June 2.

  • SNEAK PEEK:  The “happy birthday” sentiment is from So Very Happy, new in the Stampin’ Up! 2014-2015 Annual Catalog.  It’s heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

  • I used Neutrals Candy Dots for quick and easy accents.
  • SNEAK PEEK:  I’m sharing two peeks at Back to Black Designer Series Paper.  They include the fresh and modern feather background and the sweet hexagon pattern lining the envelope.

  • Gotta have it!  Creating an envelope liner is so simple with Stampin’ Up! Envelope Liners Framelits Dies.
  • I used a 1″ Square Punch to flag the ends.  Watch my 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial HERE to learn how.
