For the love of flowers

Today’s cards all have one thing in common – flowers. And if you love flowers these stamp sets might be something you want to take a look at since they are all on the Last Chance List that will be ending on May 3rd.

I’m sharing 2 of my favorite sets first with you since they have big bold images and some great sentiments for that I need a lot of the time for my card sending needs. This first one uses the To a Wild Rose (Retiring 149452).

Done in shades of Crushed Curry, So Saffron, and Just Jade it’s soft and lovely. The Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder (152718) was used to add some texture along with the lovely Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack (153620). This next card uses one of our stamp sets that have a coordinating kit, Gorgeous Posies (Retiring 153299).

This card uses our popular Gorgeous Grape to make a statement. And these next cards use the stamp set Parcels and Petals (Retiring 149317) and contains a delicate font that is sure to please. This first card is done in our In Colors Just Jade and Cinnamon Cider.

And if you love monochromatic cards check out this one using Balmy Blue.

This simple masking technique provide a card that looks like it has multiple layers. The sentiment has been highlighted and popped up using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (152883).

This next card uses our bold In Color Magenta Madness and the Fancy Phrases stamp set (Retiring 152530).

And how about this next card created using the stamp set Butterfly Wishes (Retiring 149346)? Done in Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, and Mossy Meadow and using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies (Retiring 149638).

It also uses our Small Bloom Punch (Retiring 152316), and this next card uses this punch too.

Done in our retiring In Color, Purple Posy this monochromatic card uses the Lovely You Bundle (Retiring 154070). Here is a fun card done using the Arrange a Wreath Bundle (Retiring 154109) and our 2020-2022 In Colors.

And a couple of cards using our Ornate Style Bundle (Retiring 154119).

And you can’t forget the lovely Good Morning Magnolia stamp set (Retiring 149298) and it’s coordinating Magnolia Memories Dies (Retiring 149578).

Or the lovely Graces Garden (Retiring 151513) and it’s retiring dies (Retiring 151512).

And last but not least these next two cards use the stamp sets a bit differently to create lovely projects along with our 2020-2022 In Colors.

This first card is done in Bumblebee and uses the Under My Umbrella stamp set (Retiring151518) along with the Layering Circle Dies (151770), Small Blossom Punch (Retiring 152316), 2020-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper (Retiring 153070), In Color Enamel Dots (Retiring 152480), and Bumblebee In Color Ribbon (Retiring 153622).

By the Dock & More

Sitting by the water… is there anything more relaxing? I grew up with Lake Michigan close by and always loved to go to the lake front and watch the water lapping against the shore. It really didn’t matter what time of year, each season was always lovely and had it’s own beauty, and they all had the same effect a calming peacefulness. Today’s cards all have that same thing in common water beach or lake they are all great.

These first two cards use our By the Dock stamp set (Retiring 151622)

This set has a great set of dies that coordinate with it too call Dockside (Retiring 151618) and is 60% off right now. And don’t you love the bit of Braided Linen Trim (retiring 147808) on the post of the dock for a bit of texture?

And how about this one done in traditional colors of red, white, and blue? A favorite color combo for summer time fun.

The ribbon is part of the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack (153620). And this next card uses the Seaside View stamp set (Retiring 152651).

The Swirly Frames stamp set (Retiring 146519) was used to frame the image and Water Painters (151298) to add color to the image. The background is a piece of our In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (152494) and the sentiment has been punched out using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (152883). And check out that Braided Trim that has been used again above the sentiment to add a bit of texture again. Pull it apart and you can add it to the side too.

And finally one of my favorite sets, Sailing Home (149457) filled with great sentiments and images of the sea.

Today’s cards use the Snail Mail Collection (155986) products. I think the Snailed It Stamp Set (156255) is just adorable with it’s quirky images and puns. It’s a bright cheerful way to spread a bit of happiness in the mail.

Game On & New In Color Comparison

Are you big on games? I can’t remember a time when I didn’t play cards or board games. As a child my sister and I played Chinese Checkers for hours, as a teenager Gin Rummy and Sheepshead became a way to keep busy while we waiting for the meets to begin and later on the weekends when visiting friends in college as we watched the newest fad MTV, something everyone could agree on in the common room. As an adult I loved to play games with my own children, our daughter has been come quite a shark at Gin and was the only one who could best my Mother-in-law. How about you? Do you have have fond memories of playing games too?

Today’s cards all highlight games and were stamped with our retiring stamp set Game On (152646).

This first card is a fun easel fold using a classic color combination of Basic Black and Reeal Red.

And this next card is done in Rich Razzleberry with a pop of gold coming from the Metallic Pearls (146282) used on the sentiment that has been punched out using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (152883).

And finally this classic Basic Gray and Very Vanilla chess card

using the Stitched Nested Label Dies (Retiring 149638). I really hate to see these dies go I reach for them a lot.

The Game On set is only available until May 3rd or while supplies last since it is part of the Retirement List and then it will be gone forever. So why not check it out today?

And as promised here is another sneak peak at the

2021 In Colors Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen

Let’s take a look at these 2 new greens that are part of our 2021-2023 In Colors. I really like them by themselves, and love them teamed up together! The colors this year I think have a subtle grey undertone which gives them a more vintage feel. Check out the Soft Succulent here with some of our other greens.

This next group shows you our 2020 In Color Just Jade for a comparison of the 2 together

Totally different, right? Which is why I’m excited about this addition of green. And now for the Evening Evergreen. I’ve given you a grouping with our darker greens for comparison.

I think you are really going to like the Evening Evergreen and think it will make a nice addition to our more neutral colors for basic stamping too.

So what do you think? Like the new colors? If you missed yesterday’s post you’ll want to check it out since I gave you a look at first two In Colors Fresh Freesia and Polished Pink. And don’t forget and make sure to stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing the last of the 2021-2023 In Colors Pale Papaya with you and some more comparisons too.

2021 Annual Catalog Sneak Peek

The NEW Annual Catalogs are in the mail and are starting to arrive. If you are a current customer of mine you’ll be getting yours soon. So today I thought I’d share my unboxing for some of the great items I was able to PreOrder from the Annual Catalog.

2021 Annual Catalog PreOrder Sneak Peek Video

Of course, the In Colors are always my favorite place to start looking when I get the catalog – nothing like new colors! And this is the first year I think I’ve LOVE them all, typically there is one color that takes me a bit to fall in love with, but not this year. Here is a preview.

Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen, and Pale Papaya!!!

There is nothing like them in our color families – so over the next few days I thought I’d share some color comparisons with you. Today I’ll be highlighting Fresh Freesia and Polished Pink for you.

Fresh Freesia is a lovely shade of purple that will bring a smile to your face – I just love purple and am so happy we have this option. I’ve included the retiring Purple Posy for you in this first comparison so you can see its nothing like the Purple Posy that is retiring.

And Polished Pink is cheerful and a perfect shade of pink! A bit softer feeling than our Magenta Madness and Melon Mambo, but bolder and more of a true pink feeling than our Flirty Flamingo

So what do you think? Like the new colors?

Don’t forget and make sure to stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing the 2021-2023 In Colors Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent with you and some more comparisons too.

I love getting together with my Team everyone month, we stamp, share, and enjoy catching up. Part of our meeting is sharing projects and seeing what everyone has been stamping. This month our swap theme was the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle (155821), so I thought I’d share the wonderful projects everyone brought.

These first cards I’ll be sharing with you use the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle and some fun folds. I can’t pick a favorite? Can you? This fun fold is called a stand up card and is created with some quick score lines. Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends (154883) were used to color the butterfly and then a Basic Black (121045) die cut piece was added on top.

Our Blending Brushes were used on this next card to create a lovely soft background for the butterflies and the Story Label Punch (Retiring 150076) was used to highlight the sentiment.

And finally this lovely card done using a variety of our Stampin’ Blends. Butterflies peak out from behind the card front sentiment layer.

For this next fun Pop Up Card the Dragonfly Garden Bundle (154411) was used.

The punch was used to cut out the Dragonflies from the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper (Retiring 154297) for the center’s pop up.

Fun right? And finally a lovely card using the Best Plaid Builder Dies (Retiring 152720) and the Forever Fern Bundle (Retiring 154094).
