The Four Frames stamp set and the Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper is available only for the month of April…well, that's until it's available in the new catalog that comes out in July!  You can purchase both when you place a minimum $20 order!  Or, you can receive both FREE when you have a workshop order totalling $350 or more!  Get all the details here.

I finally got a chance to play with this wonderful combo and I'm LOVING the paper!  The colors are so beautiful together and when you use it for a background, you don't need to do much more to make it look spectacular.  That means quick & easy cards!  Woohoo!  I'm all about quick and easy these days!

Here are a couple I created in less than 15 minutes!

Look at those gorgeous colors!  It's like finding the perfect bedspread that you can base your whole bedroom design around…it pulls everything together effortlessly.

The Four Frames set is a wonderful way to make your sentiments and greetings the focal point of your project.  I stamped the flourish frame in Not Quite Navy, then added phrases found in the Because I Care Hostess set. 

I tried a gate fold on this card, too!  Start with a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of card stock, then on the long side, score at 2-1/8" and at 6-3/8".  It's a fun way to make a traditional size card a little more interesting, whether you have it open vertically or horizontally.  Try it!

Now, if only I could find that perfect bedspread for my master bedroom…

Too Cool Trivia

What do you do when you don't have a Stampin' Scrub handy?  Well, you could certainly clean your stamps with a baby wipe, or wet paper towel, or simply run them under tap water.  Or, you could be a creative artist like me and wipe them on your jeans…

Angies jeans

Yeah, that works, too.  (Hey look!  I think my jeans say "thank you" on them!  Nice!)

Hope you have something to giggle about in your life today!  *smile*
