STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • At long last!  Stampin’ Up! offers a Thick Whisper White Card Stock which is perfect for my 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base!  It’s one of My Favorite Things from the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.

    Yummy card!

  9. Definitely your signature style, Mary! Love the geometrics, bold splash of color and you had me looking up the star punch. I have not purchased it yet since I have several of the old star punches, but I really like this “fatter” version, LOL. Off to pin…

    • Hi Katy: I was just telling Brian King that this star punch creates the cutest star ever. I guess it is a little “fatter.” But that’s what gives it personality! M

  10. Goodness, I’m so late, I apologize Mary 🙁 I love that embossed paper in my favorite color and the awesome design of your card, the “chubby” stars look just fabulous and festive.
    Thank you for sharing.

  11. It’s never too late, Maria! Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts!
