HSS 123

Hi stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  Sorry I have been kind of quiet lately!  I've got a couple of very busy weeks ahead so I've been stamping but not really for fun....I've been trying to get all my design team cards done ahead of time since I won't have much time for stamping.  But that means I can't share very many of them right away though...sorry!!!!!

Anyway, I can share one of them since it's a new challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  This week is all about paper pleating!  I used a really simple tutorial over on Splitcoast Stampers.  They have a great resources section that has ALL KINDS of neat techniques!

I'm really obsessed with make a cake and the patio party DSP...I've used it yet again....sorry if you're getting sick of it but the set is cute and I LOVE the colors and patterns in the paper!  The butterfly print is probably my fave!!!!
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Make a cake, sweet essentials
Paper:  Whisper white, baja breeze, midnight muse, patio party DSP
Ink:  Summer starfruit, primrose petals, midnight muse
Accessories: Border punch, primrose petals satin stitched ribbon
The pleating is hard to see in the picture but it's really cute...actually surprised myself how cute it turned out, ha!  The tutorial over on SCS was super easy and kind of genius....I had done pleating before and really struggled.  I did manage to mess this one up a bit but you really couldn't tell unless you were looking for it!

Now head on over and see what everyone else at HSS did and play along!

I'll try to post again soon but it may be a bit....but I'll be back....I promise:-)

Happy stamping!

  12. I love how you used the dsp for your pleated embellishment. The stamped cakes with the butterflies and pinwheels are so cute! I also love the color combo.

  13. It's people like you who influence those of us on the fence about certain sets. It didn't register on my radar, but I'm really starting to like it. This card is so cute, love your pleating of the DSP. Congrats on being a Finalist!


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
