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.

Gorgeous - Workshop March 25, 2017

Here's another fun card from the Beautiful You stamp set.   This one combined the bright colors of Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz.   I purchased the Pear Pizzazz card stock and ink only 2 months ago and I don't know why I waited so long!   It is a softer green which blends well with oranges, pinks and yellows.    This card also works well for a Happy Birthday greeting.
