With Stampin' Up!'s large selection of Designer Series Paper, card stock colors and embossing folders and using the Dress Up Framelits Dies, designing a dress that fits your style is so easy! Here are some cards the ladies who attended my private classes this week created...

Fun, Huh? The Designer Series Paper I used is from the Sycamore Street package which is an exclusive Sale-a-bration item. It is 1 of 19 selections available FREE with each $50 purchase through March 22nd. Two of the stamps used are from the Vintage Verses Stamp Set (another Sale-a-bration item).

Pop-Up Posies

The Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit (#131395) provides pre-cut paper flowers, embossed paper tags, fabric covered brads, thick Vanilla Baker's Twine and the Just for you wood-mount stamp. Everything you need to create beautiful card fronts or decorate gifts. Here are two cards I made. Sign-up for my newsletter on the right to see a third card.

These cards feature the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper and the Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack which you can earn FREE with purchase during Sale-a-bration. On the Calypso Coral/Indigo Island card above I used a Large Pearl Basic Jewel (#125577) in the center of the flower. On the Pool Party/Rich Razzleberry card below, I colored a Vanilla flower from the 5/8" Flower Trim (#126869) with Pool Party ink.
