Delicate Dahlias meets Be Dazzling Specialty Paper!

Life has been crazy! We just returned from our first trek to Texas with a utility trailer in tow and my hubby’s motorcycle on board. Three straight days of driving, about 24 hours. Good news, we’ve settled on our new house in Gatesville, Texas. Now to finish the packing, loading the truck and make the final drive to Texas! Moving sure is a LOT of work especially when you move yourself!

Before leaving for Texas, I had a few spare moments to play with a few items from the Sale-a-bration (SAB) catalog. For this creation, I chose the “Delicate Dahlias” stamp set (FREE SAB offering, p. 14) and the “Be Dazzling” Specialty Paper, also a FREE SAB item. The images in the Delicate Dahlias stamp set are absolutely beautiful! These images are designed to show awesome detail and are considered “Dist INK tive” imagery. I do believe, however, that my FAVORITE item in the SAB catalog is the “Be Dazzling” Specialty Paper (p. 3 of SAB catty), this specialty paper is AWESOME! I have decided with this paper, that a little goes a long way and chose to use just a small horizontal piece on my card. Ink colors for this card are Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron and Pear Pizzaz. The printed DSP is from the “Pattern Party” DSP which is a hostess offering. The small flower and leaves are cut out by hand and placed on dimensionals.

Hoping I can find more time this week to create a few cards to post over the next few weeks while we are making our transition to Texas.
