It's a Bright New Day!~Power Poppy "Hang Some Paper" Challenge

Thanks for stopping by today! I decided to make another card for Power Poppy's "Hang it Up Challenge" which you can see here using my latest set, "Lilac Time."

 I spent some much needed time stamping this weekend; determined to finally figure out these Spellbinder Borderabilities I had never used. I found a wonderful tutorial on YouTube and it helped so much to make this card. I used several of the Borderabilities and the sentiment from the set. Also, I stamped the individual flowers on white to make my own background paper~can you see it? It actually matched one of the design papers I used! Imagine that! The other three papers are from a pack of Basic Grey paper pack, "LilyKate." The pack contained the tag and I used that as my starting point for the sentiment.The tag is tied up with a pink taffeta ribbon, silver cording, and a petty floral button with rhinestone center.
One thing I find with stamping is no matter your can choose to pick up a wonderfully positive sentiment and let that be your focus and as you put your card is a wonder how much your mood can lighten and countenance brighten. And then when you mail it...the blessing is two-fold.
Blessings on your day!~

  1. Ohhhh, that's pretty, Traci! You know, it took me a while to figure out exactly how to use these dies, too. Now I just love them! You made a beautiful layered border with yours, and nice use of the Lily Kate paper. I still have a bit of this left. I love it as much now as ever. Thanks for sharing another wonderful card in our Power Poppy challenge!

  2. Wow what gorgeous layering Traci! This is so dreamy feeling. Great work with the patterns too! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Power Poppy!

  3. Clearly, I'm behind in commenting - been a bit busy lately. But what a great card for last month's challenge! I love the paper you've used and the great border dies! It all works with just the sentiment so perfectly. I love it! And, I'd not heard of Palisade Peaches before, but I see they are from Colorado. Here in South Florida, we usually find Traver Ranch peaches, and I love them along with strawberries this time of year on my ice cream. Very occasionally, we're able to find some Georgia peaches, and they are so juicy and sweet...probably much like Palisade Peaches. Hugs!
