When someone is obsessed with designer paper… as in not being able to resist buying every pretty one she’s sees… there comes a time when she must say to herself, “Just USE it!” Well today that’s just what I did. These sweet papers were all part of a pad of patterned paper from Provo Craft. I’ve been hoarding it for over a year now. So yup… it was definately time to use it.

I used my new Nestabilities to cut the scalloped circles. If you look closely you can see embossing on the scalloped edges, too. Lots of Stickles was dotted on the scallops and added to the flowers and candles. The photo didn’t pick much of that up, but irl it is oh so sparkly. The little cup on the front card is paper pieced with the matching paper on the top portion of the card. I used the same sketch and ribbon from A Muse on all four cards to help tie (no pun intended *hehe*) all the colors and patterns together into a set.

Stamps: Fun & Fast Notes from SU!

Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White, DP from Provo Craft

Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Blender Pen, SU! Markers in: Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Brocade Blue, Bordering Blue, Ballet Blue, Yoyo Yellow, Summer Sun, More Mustard, Lavendar Lace, Pale Plum, Elegant Eggplant

Accessories: Ribbon, Brads, Stickles, Nestabilities, Circle Punch
