Pimp Your Card! ~ Part 2

Good morning!

Well Spring is most definitely here!! My favourite thing about the warmer weather is being able to hang the washing outside; not having it cluttering up the house and the lovely fresh feel it has to it. Makes me sooo happy!

Today we conclude Pimp Your Card (!) ...  if you compare today's card to yesterday's post you'll see that it is the very same card but with the addition of some extra card-stock, colour and some extra stamping:

Postage stamp punch, Postage Due, Stampin' Up!

The DSP I used was Fan Fair; and this paper goes so well with this travel-themed card. I used the round "Paris" stamp, and the ink blot image from the French Foliage set.. I really think it set the card off perfectly.

Ok, so here's a list of supplies for this card:

Stamp sets: French Foliage, Postage Due, Itty Bitty Banners (for the sentiment)
Inks: Classic Stampin' Pads; Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red, Pool Party
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake
Designer Series Paper: Fan Fair
Punches: Postage Stamp,  1 1/4 Square Punch
Other: Linen Thread, SNAIL adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals (sticky foam pads)

Please contact me at if you'd like to order Stampin' Up! supplies; I'd be happy to help!



  1. The extra bits and pieces, and dashes of colour make so much difference, don't they. Lovely card

  2. They definitely can, although I think there is still a place for the first card, it's just good to jazz things up a bit at times!

  3. What a lovely card! Thank you for sharing.

  4. I am really tempted by this stamp set and I love how you have used it! I do prefer the second "pimped up" version! Thank you for the inspiration. xx

  5. Love the muted colours x
