Petal Garden Lovely Wishes Card!

Card 113

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

On today’s card, I’m using the very pretty PETAL GARDEN DSP! The Petal Garden Paper Stack is a 6×6 pack with lots of lovely floral designs, but the pattern on the card above is my fave from the pack! The colors are Pool Party, Old Olive, and Calypso Coral, and I love the way they come together for an awesome design!

The stamp set used is the LOVELY WISHES Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog, and the DSP and Stamp Set are both on the Retiring Lists! Hurry if you want to shop from these lists, because these items are only available until May 31, or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Happy Stampin’! πŸ™‚

Lovely as a Tree Gorgeous Grape Beautiful Day Card!

Card 111

Them: Bren, you can’t make a card with purple trees…
Me: Watch me! πŸ˜‰

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

So, as most of you know, my preorder for the new Annual Catalog arrived last week, and the Gorgeous Grape was calling my name! I had to use it, but on what? Nothing seemed to fit until I reached for my LOVELY AS A TREE Stamp Set! I know, I know…trees are green, not purple…except when they are purple! LOL!

Either way, I didn’t care because I love trees, and I love purple, and…a card was born! YAY!! You guys! Gorgeous Grape is simply…GORGEOUS!! Stampin’ Up! hit this one out of the park as far as I’m concerned! It’s the purple we’ve been waiting for, and it’s awesome!!

Now, you can’t order the Cardstock, Classic Stampin’ Pad, or Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill until June 1, but you’ll definitely want to get your hands on the brand new Brights Collection…In fact, all of the colors in the brand-new Color Revamp are amazing!! You guys are going to be so amazed when you hold these new colors in your hands, and mix them with your existing shades!

So, here are the order numbers for the stuff you can’t get yet:

GORGEOUS GRAPE CARDSTOCK (#146987)
GORGEOUS GRAPE CLASSIC STAMPIN’ PAD (#147099)
GORGEOUS GRAPE CLASSIC STAMPIN’ INK REFILL (#147164)

You also can’t buy the LOVE WHAT YOU DO Stamp Set by itself until June 1, but you can buy it in an Early Release Bundle!

Oh, I almost forgot! To get the Gorgeous Grape ribbon, I used a Stampin’ Sponge on the Whisper White Organza Ribbon, and colored it myself! (Note: The ribbon is on the retiring list, so don’t wait if you want to add it to your supplies!)

Happy Stampin’! πŸ™‚

Fresh Florals Big Meaning Thank You Cards!

Card 110

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

I made this card to serve two purposes…One, I needed thank you cards, and two, I wanted to use up some of my FRESH FLORALS DSP (Designer Series Paper!) You guys, the FRESH FLORALS DSP is a huge paper pack, and I’ve made a ton of things with it, but soon, it will be gone forever! Though the 2017-2019 In Color Collection is sticking around for another year, it’s time for the DSP to go, and it’s on the Retiring List! That means that once it’s gone, it’s gone for good, and I will definitely miss it!

The Stamp Set I used is also on the Retiring List! It’s called ONE BIG MEANING, but unlike the DSP and other items, retiring Stamp Sets are guaranteed until May 25! So, if you just want the Stamp Set, you have a little bit of time, but if you want anything else on the list, you need to start shopping now!

These cards go together quickly, so they are great for building up your stash!

Happy Stampin’! πŸ™‚

Petal Palette Life is Better Card!

Card 109

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

I created this card for a demonstrator swap I did back in March, and I can’t believe I almost forgot to show it to you!! I used the PETAL PASSION DSP and Cherry Cobbler Ink to create this gorgeous background, and I love the way it turned out! I really like the Cherry Cobbler with the Basic Black, and I think the card is beautiful!

The PETAL PASSION DSP is available at the time I’m writing this post, but it is on the Retiring List, so it could be gone at anytime! If that happens, you can still create this look with the PETAL PALETTE Stamp Set and Whisper White Cardstock…Just stamp the leafy image in black, and then add the flowers in Cherry Cobbler! NOTE: To get a lighter flower, I inked up my flower stamp, and then stamped off once before stamping on the DSP! This technique gives you a lighter color to work with, but it still matches your Cardstock beautifully!

Happy Stampin’! πŸ™‚

Stylized Birthday Backgrounds Card!

Card 108

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

For today’s card, I was playing with the Stamparatus again…along with my Prize Patrol from OnStage! I won the BIRTHDAY BACKGROUNDS Stamp Set, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to do something with the candle stamp and my Stamparatus, and I am in love with the result!!

The candle stamp has nine horizontal candles, so first I stamped down the left side, and then I stamped down the right! I also learned a new way to use my Stamparatus! Instead of moving the plate down the hinges, I moved the paper down the grid…this allowed me to get my candles closer together, but still keep everything lined up perfectly!

Once I was done with the left side, I moved the paper to the left, and started over on the right side of my paper without ever moving my stamp! I know it’s been said before, but YOU GUYS!! This tool is awesome!!

Note: The BIRTHDAY BACKGROUNDS Stamp Set isn’t available until June 1, and neither is the Stamparatus, even though I listed it in the supply list below!Β I’ve also listed the STYLIZED BIRTHDAY Stamp, and the Tempting Turquoise Cardstock, Stampin’ Pad, and Ink Refill–these items are on the retiring list, and while the stamp set is guaranteed until May 25, anything Tempting Turquoise is WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, so if you want/need anything in Turquoise, don’t wait!

Happy Stampin’! πŸ™‚
