have a seat

we did a little paper share w/ our last club order so we got some fun new dsp again out of the mini Christmas catalog. This is acutally Halloween paper but it's just designs. i thought it was rather manly or boyish, and i can always use good inspiration in that dept! So i didn't wait to break into and this is what i came up with!

paper: basic gray, very vanilla, haringbone and houndstooth dsp
ink: tangerine tango, basic gray
stamps: have a seat, teeny tiny wishes, woodgrain background, A to Z
accessories: basic black ribbon, gray button, linen thread, mini glue dots, stampin dimensionals

Paisley Petals dsp

 I usually don't post BIG posts like this, but i'm really excited about it and couldn't bear to split it up! ;) We have our Christian Education Auction fundraiser for our church this week Thursday and i have never donated cards. funny right? Well this year the list is really hurting for donations, so i had a GREAT reason to get down to my stamp room and do some stamping!!
 I wanted something classy but not super hard to do. Well we all know that dsp answers that ? right quick yeah? So i began diggin through a bit of my hoarded stash *gasp*...i thought i was getting better at that...guess i still got some work to do! ;)
i came across an entire PKG of this paisley petals, unopened. oops. so after searching for a little inspiration online, these are a few of my 15 that i came up with. Hopefully i got about every occasion someone could use??
found this pretty little box in my stamp room waiting for the perfect use...
tied some matching ribbon around the box and a little tag saying thanks "so much" (for hopefully bidding on my silent auction piece)

paper: baja breeze, not quite navy, bravo burgundy and paisley petals
ink: bravo burgundy, not quite navy
stamps: petite pairs and a whole bunch more word ones:)
