Good Sunday morning! I am so happy that I can share with you “my likes”  to the posts I did on Thursday and Friday and the BEST part is…that (2) people are going to be doing the “HAPPY DANCE” because they are “winner – winner…chicken dinner”….I hope that you enjoyed looking at the catalog to get to know it better…this really is a fantastic catalog but it takes time to take it all in…

The best thing…and the thing that touched me was…

 

YOU ALL REALLY KNOW ME!

I loved reading your comments and for those of you that commented that the Pineapple was it…well…it was the 2nd so you all were soooooo close! Later on in the post I will comment quickly about the DSP…as I adore this…and it is my true blue….but I have a confession so please read on!

You will see in the parade of pictures I have for you that I made this card in 3 different ways….it felt SOOOOOOO good to get “inky” and I just adore this card so making it in 3 different ways is perfect for me as I will gladly put them to great use! Do you have a favorite?

You can see that it is a Vertical Card with the must have THICK Whisper White  and then the DSP (love it) is 4″ X 5 1/4″ so you can get (6) of these cards from one sheet of Designer Series Paper, now that makes me super happy!

There is nothing more cleaner and classic than Navy and White! You know, it is always great to listen to your Mom…and my Mom always told me that you can never go wrong with a crisp white blouse and a Navy Blazer….well this paper, Floral Boutique is my classic!

Some of the cards I used the bakers twine and some I did not….just letting the marker make the dots! You cannot go wrong with any of them…I just wanted to share with you (3) different quick and easy ways to make the same basic cards with some minor changes!

The single stamp below, Stylized Birthday is a TOTAL keeper….to me, it is like the water color “thank you” from the last catalog…..a stamp that will be used over and over and never leave Randall Lane! Soooooo….here is the 1st winner! (click to make it larger)

The below card has all of the FUN  elements in it that I love….a great DSP, a fabulous stamp….the square framelits to create instant interest with the scalloped border…bakers twine and the icing on the cake…the white pom-pom trim!

This card is a great example of how keeping things super clean, simple yet classic will work! We all know that we do not have a ton of “extra time” floating out there everyday so why not – this is a great way to make a handmade work of art!

Isn’t this the prettiest paper? Each and every side is a total keeper – this combo is one that you will want to order…the single stamp and this paper! I have a confession….THIS WAS AND STILL IS my favorite (well as of right now) but I was AMAZED that the DSP when you see it in person looks sooooo much better than in the catalog!!!

We need another winner…..way to go for all of the comments and I will say…when I read them I thought, nope! I do not like that one as well etc….but I actually spent the day yesterday working on product shares and let me tell you….this NEW DSP paper in the catalog is WONDERFUL! (click to make it larger)

Way to go…..Debra – please email me and I can hardly wait to send you this pack of paper so YOU can make some masterpieces of your own! I will say, Pop of Pink it right up there and I think that was my motivation in using the Melon Mambo for my accent color.

Quickly, this is fast and easy and I am going to do a post on the new layering framelits….let me sum it up  – You NEED these layering squares!

Way to go Stampin’ Up! for making these for us. The ease of using framelits is a bonus for many that have storage issues – the way that I look at it is you are getting the best of both worlds – a straight edge square as well as a scallop square that works magic! Brilliant and very well thought out! 🙂

So thoughts….please leave me a comment and let me know which one you like….they are all super and easy….to me it just comes down to style, preference and time! DARN…there goes that word again, TIME sure does get the best of us!

Feel free to pin the below picture by hovering over it and save if for the future! Can you see on the envelopes that I also did (3) different ways to jazz them up…again, very simple yet creates an instant WOW to whoever is receiving it!
