Stampin’ Up! Over The Moon Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a color challenge – and it’s a doozy! – so, I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

Our color sketch is…no colors!  Well, we’re allowed to use a little bit of an accent color.  So…given the basic non-color-colors of the challenge, I decided it was time to ink up the new and uber-adorbs Over The Moon stamp set – which is coming to you on 4 June!  Take a look-see:

Guess what the non-color-colors were?

I added a touch of yellow!

I borrowed a fun layout from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week – it fit right into the play-on-words that I was going for!

I started with a Whisper White panel and used some stickey notes to mask the top portion off.  Then, in Basic Gray, I stamped the Over the Moon moon several times.  Then I used the fine-tip end of my Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to lightly color the inside edges of the moon.

I made some doodle-dashes across the card panel with my Journaling Pen.  You can also see I added clusters of dots around the moons!

 

Using my Stamparatus, I added the Over the Moon sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Above that is the adorable cow – also in Tuxedo Black – “over the moon”.

See what I did there?  The COW is actually OVER the MOON!

I’m quackin’ myself up here!! 😉

I used my Basic Gray and Basic Black Watercolor Pencils to color the cow.  And my Light Daffodil Delight Blend to color the bell.  Then I matted the panel on So Saffron for the card front.

I tied a teesny-weensy little bow from Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and added it with a teensy-weensy dab of Liquid Glue.  A Rhinestone Basic Jewel and some more dot-clusters in the corners finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added Basic Gray moons and doodle dot clusters in the corners of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more moons and doodle-dots on the front…

…and…a little more fun cow-ness on the back!

Et Voila!  I was SO tickled to be able to get this Over The Moon stamp set with my pre-order (one of those little Demonstrator perks!).  I fell in love with the cows and fun sentiments the second I saw it!  And I know you will, too – so just go ahead and add this one to your shopping list!!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Above the Clouds Sneak Peek

Happy Happy HAWWWP Day!!  Hope your week is going well!

My card today is a colorful and fun one – a little outside my wheelhouse cuz it’s bright AND Clean-And-Simple!  It showcases a fun new stamp/punch bundle in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog called Above the Clouds!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s FUSION challenge sketch.

And the fun color scheme hails from the As You See It color challenge.

I started with some Powder Pink polka-dot paper from the 2017-2019 In Colors DSP Stack and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

On a strip of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from Above the Clouds (coming on 4 June!) in Lovely Lipstick.  Then I matted it on Basic Black and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a separate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the balloon envelope (yes, that’s the technical name for the balloon part of a hot-air balloon.  You’re welcome) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink three times – and punched them all out with the bundled Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I also stamped it on Pineapple Punch DSP (twice) and once on Lovely Lipstick DSP.  Those I fussy cut.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the fussy cut balloons to the punched Whisper White balloons.

I also stamped a couple of little baskets in Tuxedo Black, punched them out and adhered them with Liquid Glue to the bottom of two of the balloons.  I used my Light Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends to color the baskets.

I adhered the two Pineapple Punch balloons to the card front with Liquid Glue and popped the Lovely Lipstick balloon on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a retiring Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot in Pineapple Punch by the sentiment and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped another of the Above the Clouds sentiments in Lovely Lipstick on my Whisper White panel.  Over that – to frame it – I stamped another balloon and basket image in Pineapple Punch.  Then I colored the basket like I’d done on the front and added a Pineapple Punch Enamel Dot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Lovely Lipstick card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another hot air balloon on the front…

…and then I added a little more of the Lovely Lipstick 2018-2020 In Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What a cool bundle!  And, while it’s awesome using the Hot Air Balloon Punch to create Above the Clouds balloons, it will ALSO help you to make fuller Magnolia flowers when paired up with the Magnolia Lane suite!  Whoo-hooo!  I hope you like and will plan to add this fun little set to your wish list!

Stampin’ Up! It Starts With Art Sneak Peek!

Good Monday, my peeps!  WHY is it a GOOD Monday and not a BLAH Monday?  Cuz….it’s probably going to be my last one in Maryland!

Please notice I did not say WILL be my last one.  I have no wish to anger the Flight Gods.  They’re a vindictive group, don’t ya know??  Let’s just say I am cautiously optimistic. That shouldn’t get their backs up… 😉

My card today is a clean-and-simple number (well – it is for ME!) using a sweet little new set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog called It Starts With Art and the bundled Arts & Crafts Dies.  And this suite – called Follow Your Art (all of which is available on 4 June!) – includes a fun embossing folder called Button Button and some Follow Your Art DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a Whisper White panel that I ran thru the Big Shot in the new Button Button Embossing Folder (which customers will be able to pick up on 4 June – which is smack around corner!) then matted on Blushing Bride for the card front.

The angled panel is from the Follow Your Art DSP also matted on Blushing Bride and then popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using one of the pretty edgelits from the Arts & Crafts Dies, I cut a strip from some Calypso Coral cardstock.  With Liquid Glue, I adhered a couple of pieces of the strip to the card front – tucking them under the edge of the popped-up angled panel.

I stamped the sentiment from It Starts With Art in Pacific Point on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  I used Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional to add it over the point of the angled DSP.

I pulled out the new Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit and adhered a couple of felt embellishments in Crushed Curry and Coastal Cabana.  Then I tied a double-length little bow of Calypso Coral Linen Thread (from the kit) thru the top of one of the Silver Trinkets (the kit includes 6 of these little beauty’s – they’re heart shaped and say “Made With Love” on them!).  I adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue to the Crushed Curry felt flower – and the card front was done!

For the inside, I cut another of the Arts & Crafts Dies edgelits – this one looks like a row of buttons! – from a piece of Follow Your Art DSP, and adhered it across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blushing Bride mat and into my Calypso Coral card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another row of Follow Your Art DSP “buttons” across the front…

…and I adhered some more of that paper on the envelope flap, too!

Et Voila!  This Follow Your Art DSP is fun and creative and….artsy!…don’t you think?  I love the It Starts With Art stamp set and the bundled Arts & Crafts Dies make it easy to cut out lots of fun shapes – as well as the stamped images!   I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a color challenge and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I decided that the color scheme was really asking for some flowers and leaves – so…I pulled out the new Daisy Lane stamp set!  Now, this set will be bundled (read: SAVE 10%!) with the new Medium Daisy Punch which will come out in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog at the same time this set makes its debut!  AND – it also works with the Daisy Punch, which is already active and is carrying over.  So…take a look-see:

And here’s the color scheme in question!

Flowers, right??

I started with two panels of Sahara Sand and, with a little tiny dab of Liquid Glue, temporarily stuck them together.  That’s a pretty classic start to a Double-Time or Triple-Time card!

I inked up the large daisy in the new Daisy Lane (4 June!) stamp set with Highland Heather and stamped them a couple of times – without re-inking, here and there on the layered panels.

I inked the pretty leaf from Daisy Lane in Pear Pizzazz and repeated the process.  Folls – there’s a strong chance this is going to be my favorite leaf image EVER!!

With Highland Heather, I added the sentiment from Daisy Lane.

Then I ran the whole thing thru the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF.

I matted both panels on Pear Pizzazz and then adhered the smaller panel to the card front.  I used my Pear Pizzazz and Highland Heather Stampin’ Write Markers to add a little color in the margins – cleaning up the space left by the stamping.  Then I popped the smaller panel over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a seperate piece of Sahara Sand, I stamped more daisies in Highland Heather.  I made several full-strength and several stamped-off-once – then layered them…I fussy cut them – but…YOU could (I’d even go so far as to say SHOULD!) use the Medium Daisy Punch (which will come out on 4 Jun) and the Daisy Punch (which is in the current catalog – but…I left it at home!).

I added a couple of short lengths of Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon with a couple of Glue Dots.  On the back of the flower, I used Liquid Glue to wind some Gold Metallic Thread in loops.  Finally, I adhered the flower to the card front.

I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the flower center and a couple up in the corner – and the card front was done!

On the inside I added a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Highland Heather on a Sahara Sand panel, then added some full-strength and stamped-off-once flowers in the corner.  A couple of Pear Pizzazz leaves finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Sahara Sand panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and then into my Highland Heather card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a couple more Highland Heather flowers and Pear Pizzazz leaves on the front…

…and another leaf on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How.  Cool.  Is.  This.  Daisy Lane stamp set?!?  And it’s a PUNCH set!  Whoo-hooo!  I hope you like and have moved this one up to the top of your list for the release of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog on 4 June!

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Sneak Peek For a Friend

Morning, all!  Happy weekend!  Are you all on your way to see Avengers Endgame?  I am NOT – not cuz I don’t want to (I most desperately DO!) – but because there’s barely a ticket to be had!  One of the guys went to the special early release showing on Thursday night – and he gave it two thumbs up.  I’m really hoping to go next weekend!

One little admin note before we get to the card – I will NOT be doing my FB Live tonight! I have a previous engagement and won’t be around.  So…we’ll get together TOMORROW night – Sunday, at 7 pm Eastern.  Okey dokey?  Hopefully the hotel internet will cooperate.  If not – take heart…in theory I’ll be home in a couple of weeks and we won’t have to worry about sharing bandwidth with everyone ELSE trying to stream their videos!

Okay – let’s get it, shall we?  My card today is yet another Sneak Peek (I can’t help it very much – all these new goodies are just sitting there BEGGING to be played with!  Who am I to deny them??).  This one uses the so-pretty Bird Ballad suite (coming on 4 June) – take a look-see:

This layout is courtesy of this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

And – as a little reminder, here’s the Bird Ballad Suite…

I started with some of the beautiful flower-and-bird strewn paper from the Bird Ballad DSP (available on 4 June) and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front.  I wrapped some Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon (from the coming-soon Perennial Essence Suite) around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

Next up, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Free As A Bird sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White square.  Above it, I added the bird-on-a-branch image, also in Tuxedo Black.

I matted the square on Daffodil Delight and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the bird-and-branch image again in Tuxedo Black.  Using my Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, I colored the image.  Then I fussy cut it. 🙂

I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (it’s me – so…I used a bunch!) and popped the colored birds over top of the black-and-white image.

I tied a bow from the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Free As A Bird sentiment in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White.  Then I added some flowers and leaves in Tuxedo Black sort of scattered all over.  I stamped the images a couple of times without re-inking.  Then I used my Light and Dark Petal Pink Blends to color the flowers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Free As A Bird flowers and leaves on the front…

…and I added more of the pretty Bird Ballad DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This whole gorgeous Bird Ballad suite just screams SPRING, doesn’t it?  The images and beautiful sentiments in the Free As A Bird stamp set coordinate perfectly with the Bird Ballad DSP.  And – watch for those uber-cool Stitched Nested Labels dies!  Go ahead – just add this one to your wish list!  You know you’re going to get it!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ UP! Wonderful Romance in Lemon Lime Twist

Good Friday!

Literally! 🙂

Hope you have a good Easter weekend planned – I’m headed over to our friends’ place in DE on Sunday.  We’ll go to church and then I’ll spend the day with them before returning “home” in the afternoon.  It’s been a minute since I’ve seen them, so I’m looking forward to it! 🙂

My card today is a bit of a tribute to two things leaving us at the end of May – the Wonderful Romance stamp set and…LEMON LIME TWIST!!  How many of you LOVE LLT like I do!?!  I was happy we got Granny Apple Green, which I also love, but…I’ll miss the bright pops of Lemon Lime Twist.  This is a monochromatic card featuring this fave LOUD and CLEAR.  Take a look-see:

Hang with me, folks – there’s a method to my madness!  This color scheme is thanks to this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

I assume you know what my color of choice is…?

And the layout is from this FabFriday challenge.

I started with some Gingham Gala DSP (this is going away TOO!! – so getcha some now if you want a stash of it!) in Lemon Lime Twist and matted it on Lemon Lime Twist for the card front.

To create the frame, I used two Rectangle Stitched Framelits – the large one and one that is TWO sizes down from it – and ran them thru the Big Shot on a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large floral image from Wonderful Romance in Lemon Lime Twist ink.  Then I used my Clear Wink of Stella as a paintbrush to color the leaves with…say it with me…Lemon Lime Twist.  This is a great way to add color and shine all at once – and you can add shading simply by adding more or less ink!

I cheated the monochromatic theme ever so slightly – and lightly touched the middle of the larger flowers and the tiny flowers in Powder Pink with the Clear Wink of Stella brush.

I adhered the art behind the LLT frame with Liquid Glue and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Wonderful Romance, is stamped in LLT on Whisper White, cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die, and matted on a LLT Starburst Punch mat.  Then I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

A few Pearl Basic Jewels and simple bow tied with a double length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the leaf image from Wonderful Romance twice in LLT and colored them with my Clear Wink of Stella.  Then I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Wonderful Romance leaves on the front…

…and I put a little more Gingham Gala DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Not gonna fib ya – I kind of love this card!  The Wonderful Romance floral looks clean and bright in – mostly! – Lemon Lime Twist, don’t you think?  And Gingham Gala will forever be a favorite of mine!  There’s a lot on this card that’s leaving us soon – so…I hope you like AND that you’re snapping these up!  Get your inks, refills and Card Stocks in the 2017-2019 In Colors right away – they’re only available while supplies last – and they won’t last long!

Stampin’ UP! Come Sail Away Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Have you been scouring the Retiring List?  Making sure you’ve grabbed up your favorites?  Are you one of those folks who does NOT own Lovely as a Tree – and figured it would “be available forever and ever and no need to buy it now!”??  Well…uhm…yea.  That’s not happening!  So…don’t assume your faves will always be here – get them NOW!  Just sayin’!

As the old and wonderful get ready to take their swan song, the NEW and wonderful are waiting in the wings to WOW you!  One of those is the new Come Sail Away Suite that I demo’d this past weekend.  I thought I’d show one of those samples to you today – in a little more detail – so that you can get a really good look at the Sailing Home stamp set and Smooth Sailing Dies – all available to customers on 4 Jun!  Take a look-see:

This one is easier to make than you might think – so…here we go! 🙂

I started with a piece of Night of Navy card stock and the Seaside TIEF (which is on the Retiring List, folks – so….be sure you get it before you can’t!).  With my Craft Whisper White Ink Pad, I swiped across the DEBOSSING side of the TIEF – so the indented side.  I made sure I had good coverage then carefully placed the Night of Navy panel in the folder and ran it thru the Big Shot.  When it came out – boom!!  Instant “water” – which I enhanced even more by brushing Clear Wink of Stella over the raised “waves”.

I matted the panel on Sahara Sand to create the card front.

Next up, using the grasses die in the new Smooth Sailing Dies – available on 4 June! – I cut one from Old Olive and two from Mossy Meadow.  These I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue – only at the bottom of the die cuts, letting the tops sort of “float”.  See what I did there? 😉

I did the same with a grass die cut from Vellum card stock – did you hear me mention on the demonstration that there is COLORED Vellum in the new 20190-2020 Annual Catalog?  Yep – it’s in the Perennial Essence Vellum pack 12″ x 12″ sheets in Old Olive, Petal Pink and So Safffron!  Whoo-hooo!

The anchor, from the Sailing Home stamp set, is stamped in Sahara on Whisper White and cut with the matching die from the Smooth Sailing Die set.  I used a length of the new Night of Navy & Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine (part of the Suite and coming on 4 June), looped it thru the top of the die cut anchor, tied a knot and then adhered the anchor on with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Sailing Home sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White, cut it out with the label die in Smooth Sailing, and popped it over all the sea grass and anchor with Dimensionals.

Some Pearl Basic Jewels scattered here and there finished off the card front!

On the inside, on a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the anchor in Sahara Sand.  Then, I used my Sponge Daubers and the card stock “stencils” created when I cut the grasses for the card front! – to sponge some grass on and around the anchor in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

I repeated the Sailing Home/Smooth Sailing stamping and stencil sponging on the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope…

…and then I stamped the anchor onto the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How excited are you about this Come Sail Away Suite?!?  This product suite has so many good elements in it – and it’s going to be an awesome tool for all your crafting needs – especially for creating those frequently-problematic masculine cards.  I hope you like – and have now written this suite down as one of your first purchases when the new catty comes out in June!  Unless you want it RIGHT NOW.  I can help you with that!  Give me a shout! 🙂

Carryover Clear-Mount and Wood-Mount Stamps

The lists sort of make it look like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired – but that is not the case.  Rather, the stamp sets currently offered in clear-mount or wood-mount (in the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog), that ARE carrying over – are simply being transitioned to Cling Mount.

These transition sets that will be in the 2019–2020 annual catalog –  will continue to be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).  If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Click here to see the list of stamp sets that ARE carrying over as Cling sets. 🙂

Any other stamp sets on the 2018-19 Annual Catalog retiring list that are NOT on this list will be retired.  Sorry again for the confusion!  Stampin’ Up! is aware of it and hopefully will be posting an updated list for us.

Stampin’ UP! Nature’s Golden Afternoon and some Sneak Peeks From OnStage 2019!

Good morning!  It’s Me.  From OnStage in Charlotte!  In just a few hours, I will be getting hooked up to a microphone and stepping out to introduce a roomful of fellow demonstrators to a brand spanking new Product Line from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

I am excited and also terrified to my toes.

I hope I can remember the names of the stamp set – and dies – and DSP…

Have I mentioned….gulp!!!

So – let’s do something I know for certain sure I CAN do – share a fun card with my peeps! 🙂

This one goes back to the outgoing 2018-2019 Annual Catalog for some Nature’s Poem DSP (which will disappear at the end of May!) and it’s paired up with the so pretty Golden Afternoon stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog!  Take a look-see:

The fun layout for this one comes from this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

I started with the pretty Nature’s Poem DSP in the woodgrain design and matted it on Grapefruit Grove for the card front.  Then I took another piece – the Tranquil Tide design – and cut it into three equal sized pieces.   I also matted that on Grapefruit Grove – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut a scalloped circle from Grapefruit Grove card stock using a Circles Layering Framelits die.  Over that I adhered a Colored Doily (White side up!) with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment circle comes courtesy of the Golden Afternoon stamp set.  I first inked the pretty tree image in Soft Suede and stamped it off once, then stamped it on Whisper White.  I used the Stamparatus – I think that sorta ought to go without saying anymore, huh?? 🙂  Over that, in Tranquil Tide, I added the sentiment.  Since I was using the Stamparatus, I was able to stamp it a couple of times to get a good dark image.

I cut that out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die (these are – whaaaa! – sold out and not going to be replaced.  So…if you don’t have this set, you can cut the sentiment out with a Circles Layering Framelits die.  Add some “faux stitches” with a Journaling Pen if you like! 🙂 ).  I adhered the sentiment onto the doily with Liquid Glue.

Using the wonderful Frosted Bouquet Framelits, I cut several Whisper White branches and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the matted sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearl and a Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine bow and the card front was done!

For the inside, I used my Stamparatus and stamped the Golden Afternoon tree in stamped-off-TWICE Soft Suede on a Whisper White mat, then added a second sentiment in Tranquil Tide.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and into my Tranquil Tide card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Golden Afternoon tree in full strength Soft Suede on the front…

…and more of the Nature’s Poem DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Grab this Golden Afternoon stamp set, y’all!  And some Nature’s Poem DSP – the retiring list will come out in a couple of days and this DSP is sure to be on it – and you don’t want to miss it!  I hope you like!

Speaking of retiring – the 2017-2019 In Colors (like…Lemon Lime Twist and the Tranquil Tide I used in this card!) will also leave us soon!  If you don’t have card stock and ink refills in your faves – get them soon!  Those’ll go like hotcakes when the Retiring List is officially released.  Scroll on down to see all the other 2017-2019 In Color goodies that you need to get stocked up on SOON!

News from CenterStage and the New 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!

Take a look-see at the cover of the new catalog!

I FINALLY made it to Charlotte last evening after a long day (including a weather divert to Raleigh-Durham!) and barely made it in time for dinner at CenterStage!   But – I DID get there, and was able to pick up a few gifts from the new catalog…
