Pretty Pretty Paper!

My mother's birthday is next Tuesday, the 19th.  I made this pop-up card for her using some absolutely wonderful paper called Ladies Diary from Graphic45.  I just love it!  I also used the new Pop 'n Cuts dies from Stampin' Up! for the inside.  Love that, too!  Hope my mom likes the card.
In addition to the cute card, I made a little "dresser" for small trinkets and goodies.  I used the same papers and the Matchbox die from Stampin' Up! (retired).  It is approximately 6" wide and 3" deep.
I like it!  Ribbons, pearls, buttons, and bows - what's not to like!

Birthday Purple

I recently made this card for my precious daughter-in-law's birthday.  She is a lover of all things purple.  I used the new Card Base Pop n' Cuts and Dress Form Pop n' Cuts from Stampin' Up!  The accompanying stamp set and Framelits Dies are appropriately called "All Dressed Up."  This was so much fun to make.  It was a bit like playing with paper dolls which I absolutely loved as a kid.  I created the "mirror" behind the dress form with the Stampin' Up! Labels Framelits Collection (as well as the shapes for the larger DSP.)  I put two graduated size together and cut the "frame" then added aluminum foil as the "mirror."  The greeting is from the SU stamp set "Perfectly Penned."  Pretty cute even I do say so myself!
