Spotlighting Fig…

What a classic color…Fig.  Maybe even a little formal.  And this fall will come in so handy creating those fall colors we all love.

Fig combined in beautiful patterns in the Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper Pack offers countless combinations for beautiful creations…

Great color combination, Fig and the Fresh Floral DSP.

A glamour close up showing the Stitched Framelits…

and a side view showing dimension and a hint of what’s inside…

and a peek inside.

This card with this sentiment would work well for a wedding, anniversary, sympathy or even birthday.  Change the sentiment and you can go in several different directions.  So I’m calling this an “all occasion” card!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Stay inky…Be HaPpY!




  1. First up, I have to say that one thing I’ve never been accused of is being “normal”. Love the “b-ism”!

    Your card is lovely in the new Fig with all the layers and great matching DSP. I can’t wait to see this up close and personal! Your card design is very versatile and would be so handy to have several, even in different colors, ready to add the sentiment then to the mailbox. I’m going to keep your Stuff and Digits to make one when I get a chance. Why re-invent the wheel when you’ve already done all the work for us???!! Have a great day, Billie.

    • Exactly HJ…that’s exactly why I give them…enjoy!…B!
      Ps…I don’t think I’d qualify as “normal” either.
