I hope that you are smiling with this card! This is my kind of card and this is the card that I made for my Card Swap while away on the trip! I knew that I needed to make something that was super clean and simple yet a great representation to my style, clean and simple!

You can clearly see the ease of this card and I love the fact that it is a vertical card and I took the paper all the way to the top! The simple matting with the Night of Navy made the POP easy!





Today’s color palette was inspired my the PPA Challenge and the color palette was a challenge for us from Shawn de Oliveira. If you have not seen Shawn’s work…you need to – Pop over to the PPA Site and see his work as well as the other design teams amazing creations!

I adore the DSP Paper Stacks! They are always a great option for when you are looking for a certain color! Because I was making many of these, I used the DSP Stacks to the max and also used other colors for the dots in making all the cards needed for the swap!





Remember, we have the envelopes in Crumb Cake…I think that this is the perfect compliment for this card. To me, Crumb Cake gives an instant softness to a card but I admit, I forget about using it as much as I do. Here is your picture for you to save for the future and below this is the products I have used for the card!

This stamp set, Painter’s Palette is a very versatile one and one that I think will be very popular. In the catalog you can see that Stampin’ Up! has shown it with a coordinating DSP but the way that I have showcased it today, a completely different look – very straightforward and clean.





Now for some FUN…..I shared with you that we are going to play a game – so here you go! I plan to do another one of these as I think that it is fun for you to get to know the catalog!

Leave me a comment (let me know how you like this card) but leave me a comment with which single stamp in the new catalog would be my 1st pick!!!! Let’s see how well you know me – I think that many of you are going to get this so I will take all of the people that guess it and then pick a winner and then send you this new stamp!

I will pick a winner and announce it on Sunday’s Post along with the next game day that I will do tomorrow. I figured that this way, you will have several days to look at the catalog and pick what single stamp that you would think I would buy!!! 🙂

This is a very exciting Month for Stampin’ Up! – With the extra $35.00 in Hostess winnings….WOOT – WOOT but the BEST ONE…..pick any 2 FREE STAMP SETS.…now that is a HUGE WOOT-WOOT. Please email me if you have any questions!
