In search of ...


If you are in search of a new stamp set and gorgeous green paper, you are well on your way.  Just look at that glimmer and gleam!




I was so excited to hear that Paper Temptress and Kitchen Sink Stamps were hooking up for a little March Madness.  I have been eyeing those multi-stamp sets for some time now. But now I get to play with a set whenever I'd like! 


Here is a snazzy stand up card.  It was so simple to make.  Just cut your Emeraude Sparkle Paper to 5.5 x 8.5 inches.  Score at 1.5 and 4 inches...at both ends of cardstock.  Cut the corners to make them matchy-matchy!

I love decorating the inside of cards.  But have you ever seen the back decorated?  (And no, this is not an airplane as DH quizzically asked!)  I used Blanc Sparkle for the back.  Now, here is plenty of room to write a note to your recipient.  (Tip...you might want to write a note and THEN glue it onto the back of your card if your front is especially dimensional.)  I also used Gold Pearl Linen and Nenah Green.  All of these papers can be found in the Paper Temptress' St. Patty KSS Green Paper Package and they are sold separately as well.

Now for your next hint:

On It's Way


Now off you go to Tina's blog...You never know where you'll find some hints
But before you go, remember...
