I loved looking through all the amazing cards on Meg's site and was tempted by many of them ... but I was particularly drawn to the post featuring these two cards because it appealed to my sense of thriftiness!

The Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is so gorgeous that the card doesn't need much else!

The Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is so beautiful that the card really doesn't need much more!  I cut some Calypso Coral cardstock with the Lovely Word thinlit and a Layering Oval framelit and attached it to a piece of Powder Pink cardstock also cut with the oval framelit.

I very carefully saved all the little bits of Calypso Coral cardstock to use in the next card.
Avoiding wastage by using the leftovers from the die cut

I layered the Calypso Coral pieces from the previous card onto a slightly larger Basic Grey oval - no wastage!, Sneak Peek Occasions Catalogue, Painted With Love, Beautiful Day, Stampin' Up
The glamour of the Painted With Love flower goes perfectly with the Painted With Love paper

I love the paper so much and was really enjoying that great multipurpose layout so I made this card as well!  The gorgeous flower from Beautiful Day is gold heat embossed onto a piece of scrapPowder Pink cardstock and cut out.

I then used Stampin' Blends alcohol markers to colour the flower before adhering it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and Beautiful Day stamp set are from the new Occasions Catalogue and will be available from 3rd January 2018 to 31st May 2018.

  1. Stephanie I ADORE your cards! The rose is my fave though as I have a bit of a thing for roses lol. Gorgeous, just gorgeous xx

  2. Wow Stephanie, gorgeous cards! Love them all. Might have to add that DSP to my wish list :)

    1. Thank you, Kirsten. You wouldn't regret it - that DSP is so beautiful!

  3. Although the beautiful DSP doesn't need much more as you've said, what you have done is perfect! I particularly love the colour pallet of the first card.

  4. Great cards, Stephanie! Isn't that 'friend' die so much fun? I love how you added the background behind the negative die cuts. So much easier to see the clear wording! Thanks for letting me hop with you all!

    1. Thank you Meg! The pleasure was all ours - thank you for joining us and for the inspiration!

  5. Love how the hint of gold in the DSP flows through into your designs, stunning Stephanie
