HERB EXPRESSIONS, CUTE BY THE INCH, PRETTY POSTAGE, WORKSHOP, INSPIRED BY STAMPIN'

Hello friends! Today, I have my PPA challenge card to share with you and the much anticipated bow video for you all. As I was typing up my card this afternoon, I realized that this is a Clean and Simple challenge. My card does not hit that category (see above). So I decided to show you two versions of cards (see below). A CAS card and my original card…

So what do you think??? Which one do you prefer?? I look forward to viewing your comments! Have a blessed day! Keep Smiling!

A special thank you to Dawn from Dostamping with Dawn for first viewing her video & giving me the idea to create my second bow.

I recently purchased the Postage Stamp Punch and the coordinating Pretty Postage stamp set. These are just so sweet. But did you notice the stamp behind the first one??? It is a hostess level 2 set called Cute by the Inch and coordinated beautifully with this punch also!

“Thanks for blessing my life with  you” comes from the Herb Expressions stamp set. I stamped it in Perfect Plum. Brads were the theme today and so I added four Metallic Brads to each corner.

Here is a close up image of my bow that I showed you with my video. I tied a knot using a piece of  Early Espresso Baker’s Twine. I then added a Neutral Button to the top of my bow with a Glue Dot.

Inspired by Stampin’ Workshops!  Come take a class with me where I’ll demonstrate four step-by-step cards (see below) with lots of tips, techniques & storage tips. Plus, take advantage of my Early Discount Price!!!

    Joannna, both card are gorgeous. I love how you used pearls, brads and a button. Love the colors and layers. I would love to take your classes, those cards are beautiful too. Hugs,

    I love your creativity. Thanks for sharing the videos too . I love both cards but my favorite would have to be the first card just a little detail and shabby excellence to the card.
