Petaloo and Sweet Stamp Shop!

We have a fun week for you this week! We have teamed up with Petaloo and Sweet Stamp shop for some FUN! If you love flowers make sure you buy Petaloo flowers that core’dinate with our cardstock PERFECTLY!  No worrying about matching them yourself, we did that for you.

Don’t forget to head over to Petaloo blog and the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to check things out. I heard some rumors there are goodies up for grabs over there, too! (Keep  in mind SSS is PST time so they be up a bit later).

We will be giving away some goodies here on the blog for commenting ALL WEEK long (make sure to comment on every post here for more chances to win).

Today is our first day of school in Pennsylvania…we got a bit of a late start here due to some construction but it is always a fun day…alarms…a bit of scrambling….what to wear…pictures…pencils…

AND head over to our Facebook page, too! Leave a comment over there about what the first day of school is like in your house!  I know it is a crazy day here!!! And if you don’t have kids in school then share a found memory you have about your first day of school.  We want to here it…we are gearing up for 8000 likes over there and can’t wait!

How about some Cut & Emboss cards? If you haven’t seen our Cut & Emboss specialty packs then you must! Just the perfect pack to have in your scrap supplies, especially if you are a carddmaker.

Today we have Design Team Member Andrea Amu with a fabulously layered card…here is a little bit about her project…

The Sweet Stamp Shop set that I got to work with was the “School’s Out”.  I used the apple border stamp to create an “all over” pattern on a piece of the turquoise Cut & Emboss 4.25 x 5.5 cardstock whichI layered onto a black Kraft 6″ square card base.  I used paper Petaloo flowers to coordinate along with the Core and the chevron May Arts ribbon.  My die cuts were created using Cricut’s Country Life cartridge.

And a close up..again…LOVING how our team thinks outside the box and uses the black in on the colored cardstock. And don’t be afraid to layer those Petaloo flowers!

And we have another card Design Team Member Lydia Jackson.  Nothing beats a thank you card for that perfect teacher. We all need to keep these on for sure. And, again, Lydia used some cardstock from the Darks Cut & Emboss cardstock pack. PERFECT for cardmakers! And see that cute little apple? Lydia cut the petals of her flower and used them for the apple leaves. Brilliant!
