In my last post I mentioned a few of the blogs that I regularly check and always enjoy. One in particular is always inspiring, Mary Fish and I’m always amazed at how prolific she is in her card making. Not only that she posts regularly so there is rarely a day that I can’t stop by for something new. And I always know that if there is something new from Stampin Up, she will have it and will work it into something terrific. I fell in love with the new DSP from SU, Raspberry Tart, how could I not with pinks, greens, florals, and a bit of paisley-type elements? So I ordered it and opened it up and just fell in love w/the paper! But hadn’t done anything w/it yet. Then I saw on Mary’s blog how she used it and the new Thank you stamp on this post. Love how she did the layers, which I’m not great at and she always does a supper job of. So I let her card inspire my invite to my new card club.

I like the way it turned out, but I kept it simple so it would mail easily. Then I saw Mary’s thank you cards using the new Thank You stamp and the Parisian Summer DSP . And while I didn’t have everything to replicate (which would be boring) I was inspired to use up those last few pieces of this same paper pack to make a few thank you’s to send out. Main colors were Bravo Burgundy, Pink Pirouette, and So Saffron.

The cards are all standard size except for the pink square because that was the size of scrap I had. And since I don’t have Bravo Burgundy for some crazy reason, I used Purely Pomegranate as a substitute!
This pack of paper was one of the 1st I bought from the new catalog last summer and I used nearly every bit of it up. I used this paper and the Puns from the Past stamp set to make my 100 card fronts for my first big card swap.
The colors for my swap were Bravo Burgundy and Pink Pirouette. I also used Chocolate Chip and Pink Pirouette. Got carried away with the ribbon, but who could resist?
Then I used it on a few baby cards as well, and I made 3 sets of notecards w/a cute box for baby gifts. Loved how these turned out!
