Dots & Dashes ~ an oldie but a goodie!!


Hi there, I hope you're having a wonderful Friday!!  Its a beautiful day here in Alberta although I do hesitate to get excited that Spring could actually be on its way!! It does feel like it though.  The birds are chirping, the sun is shining and it smells wonderfully clean out there.  The snow is rapidly deteriorating as well; now we need a good rainfall to wash away the winter grime.

I thought we all needed a break from  the Parisienne Summer designer paper creations! That being said,  you can certainly expect a few more because just when I thought I had used the last scrap, I've found yet another 6 x 6 square!! I truly feel the need to complete this mission, so be sure to check back in the next few days, I'll have just a few more Parisienne cards to share!

Does anyone recognize this paper? I had to go waaay back into an old 2006 catalogue to even find the name of this Dots & Dashes dsp.  It is from the days of "one sided" designer papers, and wow! have things changed since then.  The paper seems very lightweight compared to the dsp's now.  The other interesting element, with this collection anyway, is that none of these papers look really great together.  To layer even two of them onto the same card is a bit much!!

I had alot of fun creating these fun cards, they're for my DD's stash of birthday/occasion cards for friends and teachers. 

Recipe:
Stamp Set:  Riveting, Sassy Stems, "Hello" from my stash
Cardstock: Dots & Dashes, 2006 SU!, Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Glorious Green, Only Orange, Pink Passion, White and Watercolour paper.
Accessories: Big Shot, Daisy Die,Nesties,  Scalloped edge punch, Scalloped Circle Punch, Circle Punches, Ribbon and brads from my stash, embossing folders. 

Thanks for dropping by and enjoy your weekend!!!
