I am using Paisleys & Posies from Stampin’ Up! for my share for the Happy Stampers Hop today. I think the Paisley Framelits Dies are just awesome, too. Bundle Paisleys & Posies and Paisley Framelits and save 10%.
We have a sketch to work with this week, why not try your hand at it, too?
I made my card horizontal rather than vertical:
I started with the beautifully patterned Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper in Rich Razzleberry. It was framed with a little larger panel of Mint Macaron and adhered to it with liquid glue. Next, I die cut the Gold Foil images from the Paisley Framelits Dies.
I cut a strip of Mint Macaron Cardstock and punched one end with my Banner Triple Punch. I inked up Thankful-Grateful-Blessed from the Paisleys & Posies stamp set in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I decided where I wanted the Paisley cut outs to go and grouped them with a little Gold 1./4″ Natural Trim and a bow of Gold Baker’s Twine. I used some glue dots to hold them together and glued them to the banner.
Both the banner, and the DSP panel were popped onto the Rich Razzleberry Cardstock base with dimensionals.
I stamped some of the Paisley images from Paisleys & Posies on the Very Vanilla Cardstock with Rich Razzleberry ink. Then, I added the sentiment from the same set with Versa Mark ink and Gold Emboss Powder.
A complete list of the products and card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Mats and Scoring Blades Now Available!
Stampin’ Up! just announced that they are bringing back the replacement Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Mats (item 131375) and Scoring Blades (item 126995). These items are available for you to start ordering now. Keep in mind that the cutting blade that comes with the Stampin’ Trimmer does not make contact with the cutting mat so it should not wear the mat down. And, like the cutting mat, the scoring blade is made to last and will not wear out. These replacement items may be helpful for you if you lose a piece or prefer to have extras on hand.
Handheld Stapler and Silver Mini Staples Being Discontinued
Due to supplier issues outside of Stampin’ Up’s control, the Handheld Stapler (item 139083) and coordinating Silver Mini Staples (item 135847) will be discontinued after the current inventory runs out. So – if you’ve been wanting this handy little tool, get it now, while you still can!
