Pretty Petals and a great layout

Watercolor wings

I love having a super sketch to start out my card designs!  And the folks at Mojo Monday have a great new sketch every week.  Here was the sketch for last week:


  • See how quick and easy your cards come together with a wonderfully balanced layout?  I’ll tell you a bit about my card in case you want to duplicate it.
  • Another fabulous tool to quick and easy cards are the designer papers from Stampin’ Up!  This card features Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack, which comes in a 6″x6″ packet – 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  The possibilities are endless!  I chose the butterflies and then simply built my color scheme around that paper.  And the little butterfly is punched out of another pattern using the Bitty Butterfly Punch.  Here are some of the other terrific patterns:

  • The 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon has been a terrific addition to our new Annual Catalog.  Here I’ve used Pacific Point to coordinate.
  • The heartfelt sentiment comes from Watercolor Wings stamp set.  It’s my most favorite new stamp!  Who wouldn’t like to receive a card acknowledging how precious life’s moments are with them!
  • All three circles come from Stampin’ Up! Punches – 1″, 1-3/4″ and 2″.  The Pacific Point and Old Olive cardstock circles are run through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder for some added texture.
  • My accessories continue with a small Pearl and Rhinestone, as well as some Gold Thread behind the sentiment.
