In My Thoughts - Workshop June 24, 2017

This is another page out of the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack (144168 $10).   This style makes card making so easy because the decoration is done for you in the left corner, all you do is add the message.   I keep using the Stitched Shapes Framelits because I love the little stitching around the edges.   Makes message look good!

Expecting Butterflies - Workshop June 24, 2017

The next two workshop cards featured the new Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack (144168 $10).   Stampin' Up! is designing more paper stacks and I like it and use more of it because it is cut 6"x6" making it a little easier to work with.

I've working with the colors and liking them more each time.   My favorites at the moment are Lemon Lime Twist and Trazquil Tide.   Maybe because I'm a green loving gal.    Here's my introduction card.
