Some images just beg to be embossed. The beautiful rose stems, from the Flowering Blooms set on page 70 of the current Annual Catalog, is just one of those images. (Hurry! It's retiring!)
Stamped in VersaMark ink, then heat embossed iin gold embossing powder, enabled this image to be a wonderful focal point.

Sure, in looking at these photos, I feel like I am the subject of "Liar, liar, pants on fire". I was unable to capture in these photos the true sparkliness of this bee. I embossed him with a glitter embossing powder. And he sparkles like crazy! Believe me.

Lately it seems that each month's Paper Pumpkin has at least one exclusive stamp in it that is beyond wonderful. The February 2021 had this spiffy bouquet that can be colored in any manner you choose.
I, of course, chose to color mine with Stampin' Blends. I know. What a surprise, eh?
Not having a die to cut out my bouquet, it was a matter of fussy cutting. But I think it was worth the trouble.

This post is a little unusual for me and Paper Seedlings. Fair warning.
As you know, for my blog, I create a plethora of cards. And a lot of these cards I particularly like and found myself wishing I could enjoy having them on display in my computer work area.
For years now, I have been toying with various methods of having qutie a few of my cards out at one time. Shelves? Ledges? Little hangers?
Several months ago I came across this nifty little arrangement online. A clothesline type of display, complete with itty bitty clothespins. (I know itty bitty clothespins are not that unusual, but they look cute used like this.) The space on the wall is the perfect fit for this system. When I'm sitting at my computer, I just have to swivel my head to the left -- and there they are! So cheery.
And I can have 30 cards on display at once!
The photo below was taken several months ago, once I finally filled up all the spaces with favorites.

The friendly flamingo is back for an encore performance! I find him so irresistible. Don't you?
