New 6 x 6 Paper Stacks

I think I may have a new favorite designer paper, but then I'll probably have a new favorite with every one that I use from the new Stampin' Up! catalog.  This one is a 6x6 paper stack and is called Pretty Petals. The stack contains 48 6x6" double sided sheets.  That's 4 each of 12 patterns.  The patterns in this paper are all fresh and very pretty.

Care to guess which of these cards is my favorite?  The butterflies of course!  I'm not sure what it is about butterflies, but I just love them.  These cards also us the new Tin of Cards stamp set. This may be my new favorite set!  I just love the swirly border stamp, and the words in the set are wonderful also.  

If you would like to order the paper and/or the stamp set, you may do so from my online store.  Click here to shop now! If you don't currently have a demonstrator, I would love to be yours.  If you are in need of a catalog, please let me know and I'll get one out to you right away.

New Background Technique

New Background Technique

This card turned out so pretty!  The background is made with foil and it's an alternative to using the foil cardstock. We all have aluminum foil in our kitchen, right?

To make the background:  cut a scrap piece of cardstock to the size you want your foil piece to be.  It can be any color because you won't see it in the finished card.  Use a glue stick and cover the whole piece of cardstock with it.  Lay the foil on it (the foil piece should be larger than the cardstock piece so you can wrap it around to the back after gluing it down), shiny side up and brayer the whole piece.  This will smooth out the foil and make a nice shiny image. Wrap the edges around to the back, then emboss it with any embossing folder.  Attach to your card and finish as normal.  

Supplies for this card:  Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green and Whisper White cardstock; Petal Potpourri and Painted Petals (retired) stamp sets; Elegant Eggplant classic ink; Fun Flower, Extra Large Oval and 1 3/4" Scallop Oval punches; Lovely Lace embossing folder; rhinestones, stampin dimensionals and sponge.
