You Are Loved…

Today’s post also highlights the DSP Paper Stack Playful Palette and a little Swirly Bird for good measure…


Cute, right?  And here’s a peek at the inside…


Except for something masculine…this card would work for several occasions.  Love the modern twist to the patterns in this paper package and the new InColor, Sugar Plum, coordinates really well with Blushing Bride.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Sugar Plum and Whisper White cardstock, plus the Playful Palette DSP Paper Stack
  • Ink:  Basic Black, Emerald Envy, Sugar Plum
  • Stamps:  Swirly Bird, Grateful Bunch (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Swirly Scribbles, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder


The Sugar Plum base card is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″

The first DSP layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ attached to card front with adhesive

  • The first vertical Sugar Plum layer is 2 3/4″ x 4 3/4″.  The dotted DSP is 2 5/8″ x 4 5/8″ attached with adhesive to Sugar Plum Cardstock and then to card front.
  • The top square of Sugar Plum is 2″ square with a 1 7/8″ square of Whisper White that has been embossed then attached to Sugar Plum with adhesive.  Cut a swirly bird from Sugar Plum cardstock and add to square with thin tip glue.  Add square to card top with dimensionals.
  • The sentiment rectangle of Sugar Plum is 1 1/2″ x 4 1/8″.  The DSP on top is 1 3/8″ x 4″.  Stamp sentiment leaving the (a lot) uninked then attach with adhesive and add to card front with dimensionals.  Stamp flowers and leaves and cut with Swirly Bird framelits.  Add leaves with glue dots and flowers with dimensionals.
  • Inside the Whisper White layer is 2 1/2″ x 4″.  Stamp flowers and leaves in top right corner.  Add DSP strip along bottom with adhesive.

I forgot to take a photo of the envelope, but I covered the flap with DSP to coordinate with the card front and added flowers and leaves to bottom left corner of envelope front.  Geez, I could have lined the envelope…there’s no place to stop!

This paper stack is one of my favorites because it different in design from anything I’ve seen SU! make in quite a while…I mean who puts pinks and oranges together?  Reminds me of some of the 60’s patterns…

Lots going on around here getting ready for classes.  I do love my stampin’ peeps and really love surprising them when they come to stamp.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Ooooo…I’m snorting like a pig laughing.  I crack myself up…

If you are inky…you are HaPpY!



  1. What a cute, bright, fun card today. Yes, I agree there are several occasions where this would definitely work. I’ve been anxious to see what all of you creative bloggers are coming up with to inspire all your peeps. So far it seems the swirly bird stamps and dies are getting the most use. Well, I did not snort when I saw your “b-ism” today, but laughed out loud and thought that would be a happy snaccident! Too cute!

    • I do love the versatility of Swirly Bird but honestly I wish they wouldn’t limit what we can purchase on the preorder…doesn’t make good business sense to me. Thanks for stopping by each day HJ…I always look forward to your comments!…B!

    • Thanks, Billie. I always enjoy your posts and your upbeat attitude. Thanks for all your effort in making daily posts. I’m in awe of all of you who do it so consistently. Take care and have a wonderful day.
