Pretty Papers - Art With Heart October Blog Hop

Today some of the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team girls are sharing some wonderful ideas to inspire you with our Designer Series Papers. This month is the start of a new Stampin' Up! year and we have a special promotion on our Designer Series Paper, buy 3 get 1 FREE for the month of October and there is no limit!

 The DSP included in this offer is Floral Boutique, Moroccan, Fruit Stand, Blooms and Bliss, Festive Birthday, By The Shore, Presents and Pinecones and Candy Lane. There is still more than a week left for these specials.

You may have come to my blog from the very talented, Judy May. Now you're visiting, me, Rachel Palmieri in Victoria. Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Floral Boutique is totally lovely in just two colours - Night of Navy and Whisper White. For the card on the left I used a square framelit and cut a couple of squares from each of the papers, and arranged them on a square of Night Of Navy in a pleasing patchwork pattern. The bow was from the same suite of paper, and punched out with the Bow Builder Punch. The sentiment is from Suite Sayings. The second card features the 'folded back' effect. I have no clue what it is actually called but it sure does show off two sides of pretty paper! Mixed Borders provided a few similar flowers and sentiment on a circle.

I needed a 'thank you' card for a party hostess and decided to CASE my friend Kelly, and the lovely card she sent me earlier this year. Using a different paper, Moroccan is the name of this DSP, in rich shades of Cajun Craze, Dapper Denim, Delightful Dijon, Early Espresso, Emerald Envy and Very Vanilla. The Hello You Thinlets provided the big 'thanks' and I added another little piece from the Paisley Framelits cut from gold foil. It's a simple design which really allows your patterned paper to show off its design.


This card also uses the Moroccan DSP, but a more subdued pattern this time. I used Fa-La-La-La Friends for the daddy bear and baby bear. It was inspired by the photo bombing Llama, but this reminds me of when a dad throws the baby up and catches him again. Again, it is a good showcase for the delightful DSP, which is buy 3, get the 4th free for October.

Now it is time for you to continue around the blog hop, and you're going to Tina Gillespie next. If the links don't work or you get lost along the way, there is a full list at the bottom for you to rejoin the hop.
Thanks for visiting,

Cheers, Rachel
