The card I have today is made using the stamp set that coordinates with a kit.  It is Hello Friend and is on page 17 of the annual catalog.  I think of it as a “sleeper” stamp set.  It really has great pieces that work great together and separately.


Hello Friend, 144059


I love this wreath.  It is a 4 Season type wreath I believe.  You could add the flowers, as I have, or leave plain, add berries, etc.  I chose a wreath for Spring.  The base and flowers are stamped in Melon Mambo and the wreath is Wild Wasabi.

The designer series paper I used is from the Color Theory paper stack.  It is a variegated green.  I cut off the lightest color in making it fit the card.  I wanted a simple way to add texture or more emphasis without really adding anything.  ( I know that sounds crazy!)  Between the variegated DSP and by placing the wreath over to the side, I think I succeeded.  It also allowed me to wrap a piece of the beautiful Whisper White Organza Ribbon and add a bow.

This is a layout that can definitely be used quite often.  I love versatile layouts, cards, etc.  Thank you so much for visiting today!  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.



Another Paper Pumpkin Special:  The March PP was so popular due to the special gift that it sold out.  So Stampin’ Up! has offered a great deal to replace that.  New Subscribers who sign up before April 10, will receive April and May for half price.  So 2 months for the price of 1.  A great deal.  Use my link HERE, and enter the code: SAVEFIFTY0418


It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
