Framed Gift Tag


This tag was supposed to be an element on a card. I couldn't decide what the background should be, so I made it into a tag. Then I needed a way to photograph it, so I chose this empty gold 4" x 6" frame I had in my studio. It looks like a gift in itself, right?


The Gold Faceted Gem and the gold foil on the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer paper (where I punched the hole) match the gold on my frame. The black background just makes the whole thing pop!

The sentiment comes from the Special Celebrations stamp set.

I'm Here For You


I'm showing a card that comes directly from the catalog today. On page 93 is the Weather Together and Umbrella Weather Framelits card. I just copied the excellent card idea that Stampin' Up! provided for us all.


They may have used Daffodil Delight as their yellow, but I chose Crushed Curry. My watercoloring is in Pool Party and matches the lovely Baker's Twine tied around the umbrella post. Those pearls are a lovely accent.

Thanks for looking today! I hope you are inspired because I'm here for you!

July Pals Blog Hop: It's a Pattern Party!



Welcome to the July 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we're having a Pattern Party! Hoppers will feature projects using their favorite Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper and coordinating embellishments. After all, color coordination is a Stampin' Up! strength.

Whether you're justing starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal's blog, you'll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.


It's mighty hard to pick just ONE pattern when you have a package of designer series paper such as Whole Lot of Lovely.
144110 Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper $11


The fun thing is that once you choose the pattern you wish to use, the coordinating embellishments and ink and papers pop out at you from your supplies! Here I added a card base in Pool Party and some Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon along with a few strands of Black Mini Sequin Trim. It was the first time I used the sequin trim and I love it! It's hard to see in the photo how much it shines, but it does! I like how they "drip" down like those vines on the paper.


 Lastly, I colored some Basic Pearls using a black Sharpie and added them to the center of the flat-petal flowers on the paper. 

Any time you are ready to purchase you Stampin' Up! products, please use my Online Store.

Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hope on August 9, 2017 when our projects feature "cuts" from punches, dies, framelits, edgelits or thinnest.  Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-Up below. 

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin' Pretty Pals today. See you on August 9th!

Sending Comfort with Beautiful Ribbon and Flourishing Phrases




I love this card. It's very elegant and I'm sure it will bring comfort and healing to a hurting family I know. I noticed this card on page 94 of the Annual Catalog and I had everything to make one like it. I used a different sentiment and a different ribbon.


The ribbon I used was the Powder Pink 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon. It ties like a dream and it lays perfectly flat. I'm sure you can mail this card without a problem. 

Thanks for looking today! I hope you have a wonderful day.
