Old Meets Noveau

My friend Andrea and I cleaned and organized my stamping area last week. She couldn't stand the mess! (It really didn't bother me all that much). Anyway, the result was nicely organized-by-color scraps in Ziploc baggies. It is actually quite handy! Thanks Andrea!

While we were cleaning out my big pile o' paper, I found a 1/2 made card that I never finished. It was the card below. I had the base, the scalloped layer and the DSP layer all done, but I never finished it! I whipped up this cute card using a new stamp set called Chic Boutique.

Old Meets Noveau
Stamp Set: Chic Boutique
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Whisper White
DSP: Sweet Always (and how I miss you so!)
Stamp Pads (Classic): Stazon Black, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip (mostly for blender-penning)
Accessories/Tools: Crushed Curry Stampin' Write marker, Scallop Edge punch, Scallop Oval punch, Large Oval punch, Masterpiece ribbon originals

This card is cute, and serves its purpose as - yet another! - thank you card. BUT, it makes me desperately miss the Sweet Always paper. I only have but scraps left (which are now organized, thanks to Andrea!), but it was definitely one of my faves from the old catalog. I don't think I like any of the new paper as much ....... YET! :)

Keep your eyes peeled for 5K blog candy coming soon!


  1. I love the mix of new stamps with the older paper! Great job with that stamp set!

  2. Starting to love this set!You got use it, that's my new philosophy!

  3. Cute card! I'm with you on the messy craft room - mine doesn't bother me a bit, at least until I can't find something!


Imagine a beep. Then leave me a message! I love hearing from you, thanks!
