Betsy's Blossoms in Rich Razzleberry

I am hoping that today's post will go smoother than yesterday's!  Sometimes technology can be so frustrating.  One thing that is not frustrating is the new Floral District DSP.  I really like this pack of paper. The patterns and colors are so fun and happy and a pleasure to work with.

I used the same trick to punch out the little flowers that I used in this post.   I love this little bird from Betsy's Blossoms and think this set will be getting a lot of use.  I am going to end here while everything seems to be working.  Do not want to push my luck!  Have a wonderfully creative day!

Summer Smooches and the Pursuit of Happiness

Today I have a quick and easy card to share with you. I am loving the bright, happy colors and designs in the Summer Smooches DSP pack .  

Summer Smooches DSP house

The little house is from the On Board Merry Medley.  I debated on whether i should show the card since the On Board Merry Medley is now a retired product but I decided that it is a simple enough shape that you would be able to come up with something similar if you wanted to replicate this card.  Here's what I used:
Stamps: Pursuit of Happiness
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Summer Smooches DSP, Silver Glimmer paper, In Color DSP Paper Stacks
Punch: Owl punch for the little heart 
Big Shot: Apothecary Accents Framelits ( pg 191 127003), Tasteful Trim
 Extras: On Board Merry Medley, Brights Brads

Here's a super simple punch house.  I used a 1" square and another one cut in 1/2.  It is a little bigger than the chipboard one but it will work.

Punch house

A whole row of little houses would make a cute scrapbook page embellishment or card.  Hmmm, just might have to do this soon.  Thanks for checking in with me and If you have any questions about the new catalog or online ordering or anything else, let me know!


Papaya Collage in Midnight Muse
