Check out this gorgeous card!   There are 2 cards in the packet, one in Peekaboo Peach and the other in Watermelon Wonder.  Both are equally gorgeous!   As you can see, I used the Delicate Details (Sale-a-Bration free set) on the left hand side and the Avant Garden stamp set with the flowers and words.  

I highlighted the cards with a small strip of the Carried Away Designer series paper which coordinates with the pouch.  The Carried Away designer series paper has an awesome color scheme and coordinates with a customer favorite bundle in the Occasions Catalog (Up & Away).  Now doesn't that just scream of versatility and bonus deal!

Stitched Shapes Framelits are BACK!

Avant Garden, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Succulent Garden, Delicate Details, Stampin' Up!, #stitchedshapesframelits, #succulentgarden, #avantgarden, #delicatedetails, #saleabration, #occasions, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #specialfold, #papercrafts, #birthdaycardI am super excited to announce that the Stitched Shapes Framelits are BACK!  I LOVE them - they seriously add so much to shapes.  Let me show you a couple of examples. 

This is a easy special fold card using the Succulent Garden designer series paper.  The paper makes the card but the greeting could easily get lost if I didn't use the Stitched Shapes Framelits accented with a scallop oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits.  Yes the Stitched Shapes Framelits are made to coordinate with the Layering Ovals, Circles and Squares Framelits.

Here's another sample with the same designer series paper and Avant Garden stamp set.  Check out how the circle Stitched Shapes Framelit looks when it is highlighted by using the fine tip of the Smokey Slate Stampin' Write marker.

Love Notes

Sealed with Love, Love Notes, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #sealedwithlove, #fallingpetals, #largelettersframelits, #lovenotes, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.com, #valentinesAre you starting to think about what your Valentine cards will look like?   I hope this one inspires you!   I used several products from the Sending Love product suite in the Occasions 2017 catalog. 

Sealed with Love, Love Notes, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #sealedwithlove, #fallingpetals, #largelettersframelits, #lovenotes, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.com, #valentinesI used the Large Letters framelits to cut out the letters from the Sending Love designer series paper stack.  I wanted to create some height so I layered them on top of fun foam - yes you can cut that out with the framelits as well! 

Then I added the heart and arrow from the Love Notes framelits dies.  The other 2 accessories from teh Sending Love product suite are the mini paper clips and the white ribbon from the Sending Love ribbon combo pack. 

This is all layered on Tip Top Taupe cardstock that has been texturized with the Falling Petals embossing folder. 

What do you think of this Valentines card?
