Saying Goodbye to Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink has been one of my favorites since I started stamping. How about you is it one of yours? I was rather sad to see it on the retirement list (click HERE to see more about the Color Refresh), but am excited about the new colors too!

So today I thought I would share a card that I made using the Pretty In Pink Designer Series Paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack (item 117152). With four of our Subtles Collection colors saying goodbye it’s a great way to get them all and in 4 different patterns!

Pretty in Pink Papillon potpourri

I love the stamp set I used to create the focal point on this card, Papillon Potpourri (item 123757/123759).  After all who doesn’t like butterflies?

Flowering Flourishes

As promised here is the first of the two Make n Takes that we made at my Luau Catalog Launch Event past month. This card uses our NEW stamp set Flowering Flourishes. When I saw this stamp set, I just fell in love with it. I could quickly see all the different ways I could use these three stamps that are included in the Flowering Flourishes set. I think it is a Flowering Flourishes is a really versatile stamp set to have on hand that you’ll find tons of uses for!

So far, I think that the NEW In Color Primrose Petals is probably my favorite of the group of In Colors this year. When I combined it with our NEW embossing folder, Delicate Designs and the Large Scallop Edgelit I thought the card had a very vintage feel – how about you? Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

This Flowering Flourishes card was such a big hit with everyone at the Luau that I’ve decided to use it as my swap for this month’s SINK meeting too. I’m hoping my fellow demos will like the card as much as I do.                    Stamp Set: Flowering Flourishes and Sweet Essentials
