FTL, D2D, PPA, ACT70

Aren't acronyms utterly confusing??

It took me the longest time to understand CAS (Clean And Simple) vs. CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone).

The acryonyms in my title are simply the challenges I played along with for this card!


D2D is Designed2Delight digital stamps.  Their blog, Delightful Inspirations, hosts a weekly deal that if you use their stamp of the week, you get the next week's free!  So...if you buy the first one, but keep making weekly cards, you get an infinite(?) supply of digital stamps.  The deal for the above stamps ends at midnight EST tonight (yes, I waited until the last minute!)

FTL is the Fall To Layout from the clean&simple blog.  This is a great source of inspiration, particularly if you tend towards fairly simple cards as I do.  Plus you can download all of their layouts and keep an ongoing file of them!  Here is this week's:



PPA is Pals Paper Arts.  This blog includes a wide variety of weekly challenges - this week's is to use scallops.  Let me tell you - if all but one of my punches were to suddenly disappear - the circles, the tags, the butteflies - just let me keep my Stampin' Up Scallop Border Punch!!!  So this was a very easy challenge!

ACT70 is the Curtain Call Color Challenge from Stacey's Stamping Stage.  Their color challenges are wonderful - nothing too odd - and they always include a photo from which they came up with the colors.  Here is this week's:


  • Stamps: Designed2Delight Appliqued Tree, the {stamps}of life banners4all (sentiment)
  • Ink: copics
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Pear Pizzazz CS and dsp, Tangerine Tango CS, SU Haiku dsp
  • Accessories: Stampin' Up Tempting Turquoise grosgrain, Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties, McGill tag punch, Stampin' Up Scallop Border Punch

What a cute card! I love the colors and the stamp, great design :) The whole thing is such a cute little scene, and the tag just pulls it all together.
