I finally was able to play with some of my new goodies at our retreat a couple weeks ago! This card was one of the 3 projects our stamp club made! If features a new color, Soft Sea Foam, as well as Abstract Impressions stamp set! It makes the most beautiful floral cards! The DSP is from the new Garden Impressions 6×6 pack, which coordinates with the Metallic Ribbon Combo. The combo has the new Shaded Spruce color and Petal Pink that both have glimmer weaved in each.
Did you notice the stitching? It came from the new Stitched Labels Framelits!! There are so many fun shapes that include stitching that add that special texture to your creations!
I love the deep, rich color of the Shaded Spruce and Blueberry Bushel! The color on the pad case just doesn’t do it justice! The flowers were made with 3 colors: first was Blushing Bride, then Calypso Coral, and lastly, Melon Mambo. I did finish it off with some Wink of Stella!
June also marks the Creative Class To Go’s return!! I am almost done typing it up and it’s a great set of cards! It features the new Lily Pad Lake bundle! Look out for details on how to get your FREE card kit June 1st!
How fun are lemons when it starts to feel like summer?? We made this card for my Stamp a Stack of cards a few weeks ago. This card is simple to make with the Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating Lemon Punch! The lemons have the thick black and white striped paper from the Petal Passion DSP (that is retiring! -sniffle!) that anchors the main images. Then the petals and lemons were stamped with Old Olive and Daffodil Delight. To create depth, we used dimensionals.
Next, we wrapped Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the Whisper White piece of paper. To finish the card, we added Basic Rhinestones and a bright Lemon Lime Twist card base!
Such a fun card for a birthday-and uni-sex too!

Wow, it’s been a little bit since I posted! Life has been a little hectic lately! But I am at my craft retreat recharging my creative mojo! I made this card for my All Occasion Stamp a Stack of cards last month! It features items that you can buy as a sneak peek bundle this month! (details to follow!)
Grapefruit Grove is my favorite new In Color for this year!! It mixes so well with the Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss! (soooo happy these colors are back) There are two stamps that can be used to fill your flower blooms in this set. I used the smaller one and stamped one at full strength and then followed with a stamped off image. I added some Wink of Stella too!
I used the Mint Macaron for color on color to create more depth. Then I added a small strip of Blackberry Bliss with some Linen Thread for more texture and grounding. To create the border on the Love What You Do DSP, I used the Decorative Ribbon Border punch and turned it to the scalloped side for a subtle accent.

I made this card for another SWAP for Stampin’ Up’s OnStage earlier this month. I love how the colors pop and celebrate your recipient’s big day! For the candles, I stamped off the solid image and used full strength ink for the patterns. Next, I used the new Stamparatus to line up the Happy Birthday going down the side! Then I ran the Berry Burst strip of paper through the Big Shot with the Sequins Dynamic Embossing Folder. This was followed by the Myth & Magic glimmer paper, the Picture Perfect Party DSP pack, and some Silver Baker’s Twine!

Sahara Sand paired with the Pinewood Plank Embossing Folder created that Greige color that is so popular right now! I stamped off the more solid petal and full strength with the detailed part of the petals. There is Wink of Stella on the pistils too!

I have always admired people who make quilts! I have even thought of trying to make one. But, I need another hobby like a hole in my head! Giggle!! So, I decided to use the Tailored Tag Punch to make my panels and then I glued the pieces down in a semi-random pattern. I trimmed off the excess and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder.
To add extra detail to the sentiment, I used my Rich Razzleberry Marker to make faux stitches. A little ribbon and it was done (with no Wink of Stella!!) Shocker! This is the technique card for stamp club this month.
Be sure to get your retiring colors before they are gone! And I added links to the retired list for both the Occasions Catalog and the Annual Catalog 2017-2018! You can have it shipped to you even if you are not local to me!
