Introducing the New RemARKable Pin-Worthy Blog Tour!

Pinterest is my favorite Black Hole on the internet – I have spent hours there looking at anything and everything.  Our new tour features a Pin-Worthy theme every month and we are starting off with a flourish on the theme of True Love – or as our fearless leader Jan puts it, “Lovey-Dovey”.

Our Crumb Cake note-card sized envelopes have been on my desk lately – I’m SUPPOSED to be making (and sending!) thank-you notes!  The new Retro Fresh DSP (that’s Designer Series Paper to the uninitiated) paper pack has Crumb Cake in its color palette, so it seemed a natural pairing:

  • Stamps:  Yippee Skippee, Petite Petals
  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Real Red, Crumb Cake and Coastal Cabana
  • DSP:  Fresh Prints
  • Accessories:  Deco Labels Framelites, Petite Petal Punch, Dimensionals, Rhinestones

Maui Stamper RemARKable PinWorthy Mojo327Love those Petite Petals from the new Occasions catalog – and they are bundled with the coordinating punch.  I’m a sucker for deals like that 🙂

Maui Stamper RemARKable PinWorthy Mojo327There’s something about these Crumb Cake envelopes that begs for lining.  I played with all the patterns before choosing this open, floral pattern.  Honestly?  I just liked it the best.

Maui Stamper RemARKable PinWorthy Mojo327On the inside I added a sentiment from Memorable Moments – I love that the words are separate (Happy and Anniversary – there’s also a Birthday stamp).  No Stamp-a-ma-jig this time, just stamp-a-ma-GO!

I was inspired by this sketch – it’s this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch – so I made a second card with it using the same color palette:

Maui Stamper RemARKable PinWorthy Mojo327Out with  Real Red and in with Pool Party and  Baked Brown Sugar.  A minor change like that makes a major difference, don’t you think?  This is still Retro Fresh DSP.     Piercing seems to be out of trend right now, but I’ve always loved how it adds texture and design without adding color, so I pulled out my Piercing Tool (aka Pokie Doodle) and the guide.  It also reflects the little dots on the DSP (really, I planned it that way.)

Maui Stamper RemARKable PinWorthy Mojo327This card needed a coordinating envelope as well.  Love those dots!

Maui Stamper RemARKable PinWorthy Mojo327The smallest heart is punched with the Owl Punch, and the larger one is a single punch.  And what card doesn’t NEED some Linen Thread?  Perfect touch.

Maui Stamper RemARKable PinWorthy Mojo327Finally, the inside is stamped with the brand new Hip Notes image – don’t tell Mr. Maui Stamper, but this just might be his Valentine.

Hope you like this Inaugural post for the PinWorthy Tour!  Your next stop is Audra Monk at the Crafty Yogi – I’m sure you’ll enjoy her projects.

  1. Gorgeous cards! I just love how you shared the inside stamping. Totally agree that Pinterest is a blackhole… I spend lots of time on Pinterest while waiting in the Carpool Lane or the Grocery Store checkout!
