7Gypsie Creations

As you know, Cheryl Goldstein has honored me with being February's Guest Designer so I would like to share a few creations with you today that I made using the awesome 7Gypsies designer paper she sent me.  You can find this designer paper and so much more in her store ... STAMP BY STEP.

Hurry on over because she running a 30% off special on her Brads, Buttons & Eyelets!

The image on this creation came from an awesome vintage company called Crafty Secrets.  This particular image came from their "Joys of Life" booklet.  Aren't these ladies dressed to the "nines!!"  I thought it paired perfectly with this 7Gypsies designer paper and awesome embellishments from the Stamp By Step Store.  Did I mention she just got in some EXCITING new products and has more on the way!  You really must check it out and she's got amazing prices!  I've got to contain myself or I will be in SO MUCH TROUBLE!!!  LOL!!

Here is another card made using 7Gypsies paper as well as black Mulberry & Colormates (Dark Desert Dune) cardstock ... all from Stamp by Step.  My image is from Magenta Angels 1 ... here is a link to their online store.  For embellishments I have used the Martha Stewart heart border punch along with these beautiful flowers & gold thread (from SBS).  My sentiment is from Impression Obsession and I used faux stitching around the outside edge.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope those of you (like myself) who have received more than our share of snow, are careful not to over do it when clearing driveways & sidewalks!!  

Almost time for the game ... catch you tomorrow!
