My Little Princess

I have a little Princess at home. When she first picked up the 2011/2012 IB&C (actually, she was the first to even look at it when it arrived because I was busy making the kiddies lunch!) the first page she turned onto had the new My Little Princess stamp set on it. Of course she 'needed' it! So, being the good mom that I am, I obliged and bought it for her. I love being a SU! Demonstrator because when my daughter asks for a stamp set I don't have to think twice about buying it - not only do I get an automatic 20% discount, but it's a Business Expense!  Yes, a stamp set is a business expense...  so is glitter, DSP, and much much more! Doesn't get much better than that :) Check out the $119 Starter Kit special we have this month or email me at to find out more about being a SU! Demonstrator. After being a demo for 3-1/2 years, I can honestly say that this is THE BEST 'job' I've ever had (apart from being a mom ;) ).

This week, the challenge at Pals Paper Arts was a sketch challenge. I love the sketch challenges PPA has for us, they're always clean and simple, ready for our own creativity. And that's exactly what I did. Although I didn't add much - it's such a lovely sketch on its own.

I also played with the new Beau Château DSP. Especially fitting since I have a princess theme in this week's card. I love this designer paper. The main colors it coordinates with are Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla and Soft Suede. I love the soft, vintage feel it has. But, what is best about this DSP is that it has some sides that are only Very Vanilla/Soft Suede and Very Vanilla/Marina Mist. So it's a great DSP for both feminine AND masculine cards.

Little Hints:

*The Little Princess stamp set has lovely 'fairy dust' you can randomly stamp on your card.
*A bit of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the fairy dust and princess' dress would add even more princess magic to the card.
*Although the stamp set does include a 'Happy Birthday' greeting, I thought this 'Princess' greeting (which it also includes) was much prettier and made the card a bit more versatile.
*The Eyelet Border Punch is the perfect choice for this card. It adds a feminine and delicate touch to any project.
*The Basic Jewels - Rhinestones are an easy, inexpensive way to add some bling to any card.
*Add a bit of interest and dimension to your card by layering different patterns of DSP.

Hope you've enjoyed this princess-themed card and keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
