STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • I kept things pretty simple by stamping one of the Flowering Fields stems three times with Basic Black Archival Ink on 1 3/4″ x 3″ rectangles of Bermuda Bay card stock.  Change the look with a different stem!
  • The “runner up” on my Stampin’ Pretty Reader’s Choice Poll, Pedal Pusher stamp set, was used for the sentiment.  I adore the look of Whisper White Craft Ink on Basic Black card stock.  It’s popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • Just right, Goldilocks!  Since my Crumb Cake card base measures 3 1/2″ x 6″, I needed to create a custom envelope. I used the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board and Neutrals Envelope Paper (the ideal weight) for my perfectly sized Whisper White Envelope.

  • Cool thing!  This video has been watched over 34,000 times.  Watch my Stampin’ Pretty video tutorial here to learn how to create the envelope liner using the Envelope Punch Board.  The black and white polka dot pattern is from the Stampin’ Up! Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.
  • It’s the little things.  The Bermuda Bay accent (Brights Candy Dots) is the perfect punch for the sentiment.

    when was the stampin up paper cutter(not trimmer) offered? I want that!

    • Hi Sandra. I believe the paper cutter (guillotine style) retired several years ago. We no longer offer it. It’s by Tonic and you may be able to find it by doing a Google search! Thanks for asking!

  12. So pretty and classy! Love how I could change up the colors so easily.
