This month on our New at SU Blog Hop we are featuring the "Perfect Partners"-stamp sets and dies!!! Stampin' Up! has oh so many wonderful choices!!! I decided to go "old-school" this month & use one of my favorite "partners"! Check it out!

My card:

Friends are Like Seashells paired with the Seashells Dies are among my favorite product suites ever created by Stampin' Up! There is also a beautiful Seashell 3D Embossing Folder that goes along with it! You can find it in our Annual Catalog!

I am totally a beach girl-anything beach or ocean.  This set is so classic & so lovely that I've used it a ton! You don't need to do a lot with it! It speaks for itself!

I've used it hear with the Pearlescent 12x12 Specialty Paper! It originally paired with the suite, It is so nice when stamped, embossed and cut! It's a bit tricky stamping this paper, but with a bit of patience it gives just the perfect "shell-like" finish!

No sentiment here. I don't think it's needed. And it makes the card versatile! This can be used for any occasion.

Don't forget the inside!

Other materials used are Deckled Rectangle Dies, Basic Pearls Jewels (colored with Stampin' Blends), and Linen Thread.

Now please follow the links below to the rest of the beautiful creations on this hop! You will be inspired to pull out those perfect partners & create something fabulous!!!

Happy Stampin'!

Welcome to this month's Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop! We are featuring our favorite DSP's (Designer Series Papers)! There are so many to choose from!  We have 12"x12" and 6"x6" sizes! They are actually ALL awesome! So deciding was rough! lol But I chose based on versatility this time! That's why I chose      Perfectly Penciled 12"x12"!

Here's my card:

So there are a couple of things I super love about this DSP. First, the front is a
patterned print where the back is a more geometric pattern. Super easy to use both sides-separately or together. Depending on which side you use it gives a different feeling or mood to the card. Second, it's all black/white! Coordinates with everything. And the bonus (which I did here) is it is so easy to color with Blends or Markers!!!! You can also use a blending brush for a lighter more overall color.

I love how the Alphabest and Best Label Punch work here to make a greeting or sentiment! The b/w DSP really makes the color pop!  It's a very simple card, but I think it came out quite cheery & colorful!

Other items used are Loose Flower Flourishes,                                             Open Weave Ribbon (Polished Pink), Stampin' Blends, & Wink of Stella!

I hope you've found some inspiration here! Next up is Charmane.  Simply click on her name here or the icon below! Then keep going! I am so excited to get some great ideas from this month's hop!!!

Happy Stampin'!
