Framed Tulips embossing die + Nature walk by Stampin Up and me.

Hi dear you!
  • And then it was Friday and Friday it is!

Spring break is here in Calgary. Our oldest son didn't have to go to school today. And I tell ya.. he was and still is so excited. He was up around 6.30 am in the morning building a fort in the basement. So cute. You should see what he came up with.

Our youngest daugther Naomi was for that reason also up and going, but had to lay down once and a while on the floor, because I think it was a tiny teeny bit to early for her. Well I don't blame her.. 6.30 am is so early. I wish I could just walk around with a super soft blankie and drop on the floor if I would feel like it ;) Just like that.. no explaining to anyone.. just laying on the floor... jah.. I guess that time has gone by for me.. But I had to take a photo of her. She is just so precious. Isn't she?

Anyway.. Today I used for the first time in my Big Shot my new Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder die (# 121809 - $12.17) Wow, whoever came up with that name sure knows how to put it :) (smile)

I hope the pictures can show you what a great embossing die this one is. My card looks so professional (i.m.h.o.) and fun at the same time. ;) Just saying ....

As a base of the card I used the Daffodil Delight Stampin Up card stock. And yes.. I am sorry, but I had to use the Baja Breeze Card stock from SU again.. Not sure how to stop that habit. It just looks so cool. And what do you think of this image of the Nature Walk Stampin Up set? (#121997 - $25.50) What a cuty eh! It comes with 7 gorgeous sketch-like images with a sweet vintage look. I have to try that bird soon on one of my cards and the four eggs in a row and.. oh well.. I guess all of them. To finish it all off, I just had to ad one of those tiny flower brads from Stampin Up in the same yellow.. Doesn't an accent like that ad so much to a card? I am sure you agree!

The Pals Paper Arts ladies encouraged us to emboss this week for their Elements of style #86 Challenge. You should check out their site.. You will be inspired, that's for sure.

Well.. Like I said, Friday it is.. I think we are going to have pizza tonight + after the kids are all in bed we are planning on watching the movie 'Date night' with Steve Carell and Tina Fey. Have you seen that movie.. It is hillarious.. We have seen it before. But our friends who are living with us right now, haven't seen it yet.. Oh I can't wait to see it again. They are in for a treat.

Inky hugs, Pauline


  1. Beautiful card---precious daughter!

  2. Beautiful card - I love the colors you used and how you used the ribbon behind the main panel. I need to find time to play this weekend as it's been awhile since I've played along with PPA.

  3. Hele mooie kaart en vooral de combi van Baja Breeze en Daffodil Delight is super! Die laatste kleur komt binnenkort ook in mijn hobbykamer te liggen, dus kan ik ook deze combi een keer gebruiken.
    Thanks for the tip!!
    Fijn weekend!

    Groetjes, Sandra

  4. It IS professional!! I love the colors and I love the way the sentiment is highlighted by the ribbon!

  5. Pauline, this is so lovely! I love how you used the fun spring colors with that set. The little floral brad is a fabulous accent! Your little gal is so adorable. I would love to just relax like that sometimes! Too cute!

    Ps: Thank you so much for the heads up on my blog post. My mind is exhausted after this week, can you tell? Haha! Have a great rest of your weekend. Big hugs to you! :)

  6. Very pretty! Love seeing the twill used!

  7. Hi Pauline, I came across your blog last night and had a fantastic time looking through all your lovely cards and reading your posts - I have taken the liberty of casing this card which I will post on my blog in the next couple of weeks. I hope you don't mind, I have linked my post back to your blog so people can see where the original idea came from! Best wishes to you and your family.


Thanks so much for leaving your comment. Enjoy the rest of your day! Take care, Pauline
