Stampin' Up Watercolor Wings and All things Thanks gift tag

I wanted to share this fun tag I made using the Watercolor Wings stamp set. I added this tag to the Watercolor Pencils set, to make it extra special.  I used colors that went with the box, Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi. I added a little Baker's Twine and it just finished it off, see what you think.

Have a great day and be sure to check out all the deals on the retiring list they are selling FAST!!!

April is Paper Pumpkin's 4th anniversary!! Sara Douglas the CEO of Stampin' Up created this month's Paper Pumpkin.


Bold, Vibrant and Artistic-with a little bit of sass is how Sara describes the kit she designed. I have met Sara and know her style, I can't wait!!!

I LOVE getting my little orange box in the mail.....but this black box with that little hint of lime color...oh I can't wait!!!

Dragonfly and Flourishing Phrases Sympathy card

I wanted to share this card with you. I think out of all the cards that you send, sympathy cards are the hardest!!! This is for one of my dear colleagues at work, I made it a little bigger, so everyone could sign it. I tried to keep it simple and elegant.

I used the Dragonfly framelit along with the Flourishing Phrases. If you haven't checked out that stamp set, it has some really enduring sayings.

Have a great day!!
