Happy Tuesday!  I love a challenge that gives me a new technique to use!  I've never used paper pleating in any of my creations, but now I can say that I have with this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  If you haven't had a chance to visit their page, you should!  They have great challenges every week to get your creativity going! 

My mom asked me to make a wedding card for an upcoming wedding she will be attending.  The pleated paper was just what this card needed! 

Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, International Bazaar DSP, Neutrals DSP Stack in Basic Gray
Ink ~ Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight
Stamp Set ~ Love & Laughter
Other Supplies ~ 1/4" Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Rhinestone Basic Jewels
I found a great tutorial for the paper pleating at Splitcoast Stampers

Happy Stamping!


  1. Very Pretty!!! Love the color combo!!! Love the pop of yellow flowers and ribbon- perfect accents!!! Great job with the paper pleating!!! Thanks for playing along with Hand Stamped Sentiments, Diane

  2. I love the Daffodil Delight and Basic Gray combo. I would have never thought of that. It looks so elegant and bright. Love the pleating. The tutorial you posted is sooo much easier than the one I found. I will definitely be referring to that one. Thank you for Joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

  3. What an adorable card! Gray and yellow are really in right now so this card is right on target. Thanks for joining us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments!

  4. Yow! That is one gorgeous card, with the cool grey and yellow color combo, and I love how you pulled together the pleated section with that bright bow. The bling really finishes it off, too, it sets off the grey and gives it an icy look. Thanks for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments! Erika

  5. Wow this is so striking and beautiful. I love the colors and the print patterns. The rhinestones are the perfect touch. This is an awesome entry in this week's pleat challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Smiles, Elizabeth

  7. I think the pleats are a perfect touch to this wedding card, and yellow and gray is one of my fav. color combos! Congrats on being an artist pick on HSS!
