Painter’s Palette Hello

A Little Hello

A few months ago, I hosted a Stamps & More Online Class that featured Stampin’ Up!’s Painter’s Palette stamp set. As a thank you for participating in this class, each person received this very special thank you card from me. It isn’t often that I focus on just one color when I make my cards, but I am in love with Sweet Sugarplum! And I love how beautiful the Silver Metallic thread looks with it too. For today’s card, I’ve paired Stampin’ Up!’s Painter’s Palette and Badges & Banners stamps sets with the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack to make this fun card.
