Always and Vintage wallpaper by Stampin Up and me

Hi everyone..
Wow, we woke up to a snowy day here in Calgary.. Just when I thought that Spring was in the air.. I found out that Spring was only in my head. Oh well.. Just another day in paradise I guess :)
  • Today I worked on a card that was inspired by the Challenge on the ColourQueen Challenge #76. Those sweet ladies encouraged us to use the following colors: Kiwi Kiss, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Early Espresso and Whisper White from Stampin Up. If you know me a little bit, you know that these are some of my favorite colors, so off I went.

This is what I came up with.

  • I embossed my Whisper White card stock with the Vintage Wallpaper textured impressions embossing folder (#120175 - $10.95) I love how that turned out.
  • I inked up this beautiful bird from the Always Stampin Up stamp set (#113620 - $35.95) in Whisper White craft ink and I stamped it on my retired Kiwi Kiss SU card stock.
  • As a base for this card I used the Daffodil Delight card stock from Stampin Up.
  • I used my Word window punch and Modern label punch from SU to punch out the sentiment. I felt so with it (smile), when I realized that one of the pearls fitted perfectly in one of those Flower brads from Stampin Up. So so cute :)

Well.. I gotta run again.. Life as a busy mom eh.. I have been making dinner for 9 mouths these last 3 days.. I tell you, it's not even that more difficult.. but I think it is just between my ears.. (smile) that it is more work. hahaha.. Anyway.. gotta go!

Inky hugs, Pauline


  1. Hi Pauline! This is so pretty! Love your clean design and the tiny pops of pearls to dress your little bird up. That ribbon is one of my favorites, too. Have a great night! Hugs! :)

  2. Ooh!!! I'm going to have to try this challenge, Pauline. After all, it's got Kiwi Kiss so I'll have to give this a whirl tomorrow when I get home from work. I love your pretty card and the opposite rounded corners. Love the pearl touch on the brad!

  3. Hier een goedemorgen Pauline (8.40am) uit Holland. Wat een mooie kaart weer. Leuk wat je met deze challenge hebt gemaakt, ik heb juist helemaal niets met deze kleuren! Die punches staan op mijn verlanglijst van wat ik van SU zou willen hebben...

    Groetjes, Annemiek

  4. That gorgeous white embossed background makes rhe bird almost pop off. Taht stamp is gorgeous; I love the addition of the flowers on the bird; an elegant and lovely toch. Gorgeous!
    Enjoy your day!

    ps We hebben hier geen sneeuw meer; gelukkig ! De zon schijnt maar voor Nederlandse begrippen is het nog steeds koud. Vooral de koude wind; brrr! Liefs!

  5. Hi Pauline,
    Die stempelset is ook 1 van mijn favorieten. Ik moet 'm ook maar weer eens afstoffen binnenkort. hihihi.
    Je hebt weer een prachtig kaartje gemaakt!
