I just love this trendy stationery from Kate Spade!  There are just so many things I am inspired about here!

  • Create a bold border around postcard-style stationery using the chisel tip of a marker.
  • Gold embossed polka dots!  Need I say more?
  • Allow a simple sentiment take center stage when gold embossed onto a crisp white card.
  • Keep your color scheme simple with white and a splash of something bold, like Raspberry Fizz.
  • Don't forget your envelopes!  Create a fun and festive envelope liner for your card.

I am sure that many of you will come up with even more ideas!  Take a piece of this inspiration (or others you have discovered), and create something fabulous!  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!

Kristie H kept things clean and simple her gold embossed creation!  I love how the detail of this frame pops with the embossing and the scored border she created was the perfect finishing touch!


Diana K created this pink and gold beauty to perfection.  I love how she heat embossed the second step of the feather stamps in gold.  Just such a nice touch!


Martha made this adorable tag and matching pocket to tuck it into.  The gold embossed bow on the pocket is just to die for!  And I love the polka dots that carry from the tag to the lining of the pocket!

Congratulations to all the winners!  Please send a note to customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to!  And a BIG thank you to everyone who played along!  Your projects all looked amazing!
