So cute + Bugs & Kisses by Stampin Up and me

Good morning everyone!

Yesterday my dear blogger friend Christy told me that the Paper Players had something in their challenge, that I might be interested in. This sweet woman cracks me up. She often teases me when she sees that I used 'again' :) one of my favorite colors 'Baja Breeze' .So I had a feeling that it had something to do with it.

And there you had it. The sweet ladies of the Paper Players (Hi beautiful ladies, I just have to add in here that you all are so so SO creative and talented , inspiring and encouraging) challenged us to use Baja Breeze, Poppy Parade and So Saffron in our card. That's all I needed. So here is what I came up with..

As a base for this card I used the Baja Breeze Stampin up card stock. The next layer was So Saffron. I rolled my Top Note Stampin Up die through my Big Shot and got this great frame to work in. Please look at all the details.

I loved how it all came together. The So Saffron ribbon and the flower brads.. the Stampin Up markers in the same colors. The cute little ants from my Stampin Up 'Bugs and Kisses' stamp set.. Well I am sure you get the point.. I had a lot of fun putting it all together.

Well.. I gotta go again. I still need to do a lot of painting in our home sweet home.

Inky hugs, Pauline


  1. Wauw, Pauline! Wat een mooie kaart! En wat superleuk dat je de mieren de cupcakes laat dragen, hahaha! :-D
    Erg grappig.

    En dank je wel trouwens voor je lieve reactie op mijn kaart van vanmorgen. Love you! ;-)

    Liefs, San

  2. What a fun, creative and sassy card! I love this!

  3. tee hee!!! :) I love this card and the layout you used. The So Saffron panel and ribbon behind the Top Note die cut is fabulous. Never would have thought to use the ribbon like you did.

    I'm in the mood for a cupcake like the ones the little ants are carrying away.

    I need to make a card for the challenge too - you've inspired me!!!

  4. Pauline, your card had my screaming with laughter! Adorable. I don't know how you came up with this idea... but I LOVE it. Very creative. I love repetitions... and I love things in threes... so the repetition of the cupcake and the flower brads really pleases me :-) All round, fabulous card.
    So glad you joined the Paper Players this week and shared this wonderful card.
