Stampin’ Up! 2020 Aug-Dec Mini Catalog Love of Leaves Sneak Peek!

Hey, y’all – happy (?) Monday!  I added the question mark just in case you’re not thrilled for the week to get back underway!

My Monday is likely going to be pretty average – with the exception of having to go to the dentist this afternoon for a crown prep. Bleh.

Thank goodness for nitrous, am I right?!?  Sooo much nicer than the suck-it-up-buttercup of military dentistry!  Novocaine?  We got that.  Gas that makes you not care when we GIVE you the shot?

uhm…nope. 😉

So this is much better all the way around!

My card today is a sneak peek of a wunnermus new bundle in the 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Holiday Catalog) – I took inspiration from one of the pretty samples in the catalog!  You’re going to be able to get these on 4 August!  It’s the Love of Leaves stamp set which will be bundled with the amaze-balls Stitched Leaves Dies that I set atop the gorgeous new Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Make Sketches challenge.

And – while it’s not really over-the-top feminine, for me it reads as a card for a woman.  So…the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge seemed perfect!

I started with a piece of subtle paper from the stunning new Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP that I ran thru the die cutting machine with the big stitched die in the Stitched Leaves Die set.  Look what it did!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat.

Then I stamped some leaves from the Love of Leaves stamp set and stamped them on Very Vanilla in Bumble Bee, Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron.

I cut all the leaves with their matching dies in the bundled Stitched Leaves set.  Look what THEY leave behind!!

So…be ready to make projects using the negative space on this set, y’all!  And be sure to check out the stitching on the leaves – looooooovvvveee!!

I used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the leaves to the card front.

I tied a little bow with some Copper 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon (from the new Basket Weave and Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack (also available on 4 Aug with the arrival of the new catalog!) and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I stamped a Love of Leaves sentiment in Early Espresso on a strip of Very Vanilla, snipped banner ends and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Love of Leaves sentiment in Early Espresso on a Very Vanilla panel.  Over top, I added a leaf in stamped-off-once Mint Macaron.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Mint Macaron leaf (full strength) on the front…

…and more of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Just go ahead and write it down right this second.  Love of Leaves.  Stitched Leaves Dies.

You might as well plan on ordering this bundle first jump out of the box on 4 August.  And – don’t forget the stunning Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP!

And – not for nuthin…want it right now?  Well…new demonstrators can select from the 2020 Aug – Dec Mini to fill their Starter Kit when they join now!  How cool is that?!?  Let me know if you want to join the team – I’d be tickled to have you on board!

Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Sneak Peek for Every Season

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  I’ve heard from a few folks who have received their catalogs from me – so…if you think you were on my list – be checking your mailboxes!  The USPS moved them pretty fast! 🙂

My card today is one that I made with my Pre-Order goodies which, oh-by-the-way!, YOU could select as part of your Starter Kit if you join right now (instead of waiting until the 3rd of JUNE!!)!  Ask me how!

No.  Really.  Ask me how and join the team!

You know you want to! 😉

Anywho – I pulled out the Field Of Flowers stamp set and combined it with some paper from the Flowers For Every Season DSP and the coordinating Memories & More Card Pack.  Take a look-see:

Easy peasy – and not a fussy-cut in sight! 😉

The layout for this one hails from the As You See It Challenge this week.

I started with a Just Jade card from the new Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack.

For the card front, I matted a piece of Flowers For Every Season DSP on a piece of Bumble Bee card stock.  Then I cut a coordinating piece with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I matted a strip of yet another design from the Flowers For Every Season DSP on Bumble Bee and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I wrapped a piece of the open weave ribbon from the new Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack around it – adhering it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

I cut down one of the small cards in the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack.  Then I stamped the pretty sentiment from Field of Flowers in Shaded Spruce and matted it on Bumble Bee.

I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped a second sentiment from Field of Flowers in Shaded Spruce.  In the corner, I added the stems in Shaded Spruce and the sweet wild-flowers image in Crushed Curry.  And…I thought I was done.  But then…I spied with my little eye…the dragonflies in the set!  Love dragonfly images, so…on they went in Tuxedo Black!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The pre-printed envelope from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes got more of the Field of Flowers flowers on the front…

…and the flap is already decorated on the inside, so…done!

Et Voila!  You guys – I LOVE this Field of Flowers stamp set!  The big focal sentiment “always”, in the gorgeous font, is designed to work in combination with the other words and phrases in the set.  And…the flowers are wonderful!

And there is no denying the beauty of the Flowers for Every Season DSP, is there??

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Mountain Air Sneak Peek

Good morning, my peeps!  Welcome to another week.  If you’re still self-isolating, then…it’s week 52 of May!

Just helping you keep oriented to the goings on in the “outside world”! You’re welcome. 😉

My card today is a special request for a thank you card, for a man, who lives in the mountains and has a tree trimming/clearing business.  Obviously, I headed for the Mountain Air stamp set with its bundled Majestic Mountain Dies (carrying over), and I pulled a sentiment from the new Lovely You stamp set (NEW in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

I pulled the layout for it from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and, in Early Espresso, stamped the mountain range from Mountain Air.  I stamped it a second time in Crumb Cake – offsetting it a little to create a “range”.

Then I embossed the panel in the Woodland Embossing Folder.

Across the bottom of the panel, with Liquid Glue, I adhered a strip of Early Espresso cardstock.  I also cut a triangle and adhered it on the right side.

I created the “barn wood” fence/wall using strips of the new In Good Taste DSP (also coming on 3 Jun in the new catalog).  The strips varied in width.  I laid them out in a lattice fashion…

…and used Liquid Glue to adhere them.  Then I trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer and matted the panel on Mossy Meadow.

I stamped the sentiment from Lovely You in Mossy Meadow on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, using my Stamparatus.  Then I cut it out with a Stitched Nested Label die.

I stamped a few trees from Mountain Air in Mossy Meadow on Crumb Cake and cut them with their matching dies in the Majestic Mountain die set.  I also cut a few of the detailed trees dies from Mossy Meadow.

The final piece of prep was a double-loop Linen Thread bow.

Then I laid everything out until I got it how I wanted it (including a length of new 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim)…and took a couple of pictures.

First with everything in place…

 

…and then I picked up the sentiment…

I adhered the Faux Suede Trim using Glue Dots on the back of the card front, then I added all the trees with Liquid Glue.

The double-loop bow is adhered with a Glue Dot.  Then I popped the sentiment and final tree on with Dimensionals.  And the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped the mountain range in Early Espresso and Crumb Cake on a Crumb Cake panel.  Then I adhered a strip of Early Espresso and more strips of In Good Taste DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got some Mossy Meadow pine trees on the front…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Well – what do you think?  Mountains – check.  Trees – check.  Masculine – check.  Thanks to the wonderful scenic images from the Mountain Air set and the matching dies in Majestic Mountain – it’s pretty easy to create any sort of mountain scene!  So glad that it’s carrying over!

And the brand new Lovely You stamp set is chock full of all sorts of sentiments – in really pretty fonts!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Many Blossoms In Bloom 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 a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

The color combo today is a pretty classic mix – blue, green and white.  Very summery (in my opinion!).  I decided to go floral with it – and play with the new and totally cool Blossoms in Bloom with the bundled Many Layered Blossoms Die set.  This bundle will be available to customers on 3 Jun in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  Take a look-see:

And – here’s our challenge badge!

My layout was loosely inspired by this week’s challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I started with a plain Whisper White panel and, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the large floral image from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Night of Navy.  Then I matted it on Garden Green for the card front.

From another piece of Whisper White, I cut the large, more “solid” die in the Many Layered Blossoms Die set.

Using the more detailed die (on the right in the picture above), I cut it from Night of Navy and again from Garden Green.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the detailed Night of Navy die cut to the Whisper White die cut.  Then I adhered it to the card front with more Liquid Glue – lining up the die cut with the stamped images.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the cut-out pieces from the leaves on the Garden Green detailed die cut into the negative spaces on the die cut already on the card front.

Then I wrapped a length of 3/8″ Denim Ribbon around the panel – adhering it in the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped a Blossoms In Bloom sentiment in Garden Green on a piece of Whisper White and cut it with a die from the new Tasteful Labels die set (also coming on 3 Jun in the new catalog).

I stamped a small flower from the Blossoms In Bloom set in Night of Navy next to the sentiment then popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the little flower – I cut a small solid flower from Whisper White and a detailed flower in Night of Navy and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  Then, lining it up with the stamped image – I popped it onto the sentiment die cut with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I added a few Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels in Night of Navy and Garden Green and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped some Night of Navy flowers and Garden Green leaves on a Whisper White panel.  I even added a few Holiday Rhinestones, too!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Blossoms In Bloom flowers and leaves on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such a cool way to make detailed and colorful flowers – first stamping the images with the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set and adding the pretty die cut images from the bundled Many Layered Blossoms die set.  Blossoms In Bloom also comes thru in the sentiment department – covering thank you’s, birthdays, Get Well and more!!

I hope you like!  And if you want it RIGHT NOW – you can get it as part of a Starter Kit!  Give me a shout and I’ll tell you how!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Because I really just couldn’t help myself, I pulled out a new bundle – well the Suite, really – all available on 3 Jun!  My card today showcases the wunnermus new World of Good Suite – anchored by the Beautiful World stamp set and bundled World Map dies.  And this suite is where you’ll find the amazing World of Good Specialty DSP and my new favorite thing…Antiqued Corners & Slides.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with some of the beautiful Mossy Meadow paper from the World of Good Specialty DSP that I matted on Early Espresso for the card front.  A smaller piece, also matted on Early Espresso, created the middle panel.

Next, I used a square Stitched Shapes Die to cut down one of the great smaller cards in the new Beautiful World Memories & More Card Pack and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the circle die in the World Map Dies, I cut a circle from the same scripty design in the World of Good Specialty DSP.  I used the detailed die (this is the one with North America – but there’s ALSO a die featuring the other half of the world!!) to cut a Gold Foil world.

I adhered that to the DSP circle with Liquid Glue and popped it onto the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I threaded some of the new 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim – also part of this Suite and available on 3 Jun – thru an Antiqued Slide and then adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot and a little Liquid Glue.

To finish off, I added an Antiqued Corner at each corner of the scripty panel with a Glue Dot (don’t you think they make it look like a really cool and elegant desk pad?!? Ha – you do now even if you didn’t before!! ) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used more of the scripty World of Good Specialty DSP and, with my Stamparatus, added a sentiment from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got an Early Espresso world map image from the Beautiful World stamp set on the front…

…and more of the Mossy Meadow World of Good Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay – who’s with me here?!  World of Good is a SUPER wonderful suite – filled with vintage and masculine-oriented images and the World of Good Specialty paper is just….swoon-worthy!  The Beautiful World stamp set – with the bundled World Map Dies will let you create cards for thank you’s, writers, travelers and just because!

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!  You’ll be able to pick up all the new Suite goodies on 3 Jun (unless you Join Now – and then…you could pick them today.  Just sayin’…).

Stamps-N-Lingers Online Host Club Openings for June!!

Good morning!  I’ll be back a little later with a sneak peek at one of the fun new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog bundles and the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop – so I hope you’ll be back, too, for a look!

I mentioned in my You Tube “Sneak Peek Unboxing Video” yesterday that I am starting an Online Host Club in June to coincide with the arrival of this new catalog.  Didn’t see the video?  Here’s a link to it on YouTube…

So – it seemed like a good idea to give you the deets so that you can get signed up if this sounds like a good way to get all the new goodies that you want…a little at a time!  🙂

What is an Online Host Club?

Well – besides helping you to build your crafting tool chest a little at a time, a club also lets you get host benefits – without actually HOSTING a workshop!

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FORTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   Not only will that help you gather up 2020-2021 Annual Catalog goodies – it’ll put you in a perfect position for the 2020 Jul – Dec Mini Catalog (previously known as the Holiday Mini!!).

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please give me a holler!

See you again in just a bit!

There’s a legend known only to ponies – of a pasture filled end to end and side to side with the greenest grass known to pony-kind.

They know it exists – they can see it every day – but…alas and alack, there is fence all around.

They call it…The Promised Land.

Every day they gaze longingly and chuckle piteously to the evil humans who rule The Promised Land.

They see deer – VERMIN! – eating the luscious goodness.

And they despair of ever reaching their dream.

Until, one day, one of the humans takes pity on the obviously-starving ponies.

And the gates to The Promised Land swung open…

You want us to…come in?!?

Uhm….

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Ornate Garden Treat Basket – with Video Tutorial!

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  I feel obligated to say….stop touching your face and wash your hands.

There.  Public Service Announcement….DONE!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I got the idea for this sweet treat basket from my friend Sue Prather – who gave all of us one last weekend at our Spring STAMPede event!

This is so easy. 🙂

Where Sue used some Best Dressed DSP, I used some of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – from the Early Release Ornate Garden Suite (which y’all can get on 1 April – or NOW if you decide to join the team).  I decorated mine with sweet Daisy Lane flowers.  Take a look-see:

With my Simply Scored board, I scored at 2″ and 4″ on one side of the 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP – rotated the paper 90 degrees (doesn’t matter which way) – and scored again at 2″ and 4″.

Next, I used my Paper Snips to cut from the edge of the paper to the crossing score line.  I did that on two opposing sides.  As shown by the dotted lines below.

When I was done snip-snipping, my paper looked like this:

I placed Tear-and-Tape Adhesive on the inside of the DSP on opposite corners…

Then I removed the tape and brought the tips of the outside corners together – tucking the center square panel on the inside.

The end result…

I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the inside flap so that it would help to make everything more secure and tidier! 🙂

Ready to decorate!

I used a length (about 7 1/2″) of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim (from the Tropical Oasis Suite) for the handle – using a craft stapler to adhere it on the inside of the basket at the points.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped two each of the large and small daisies from the Daisy Lane set in Daffodil Delight.  Then I punched them with the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch.

 

With the Leaf Punch, I punched three Mint Macaron and three Old Olive leaves.  I creased each little leaf with my fingers and adhered three each on both sides of the basket with Liquid Glue.

I popped the small daisies atop the large daisies with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Then I adhered them over the top of the leaves with Liquid Glue.

A Perennial Essence Flower Center in the middle of each daisy finished off my Spring Baskets!

Et Voila!  These little baskets are so cute and so easy and…how many ways can you think of to use them?  Mother’s Day?  Easter Brunch?  May Day?  Baby Shower?  Bridal Shower?  Think of all the gorgeous papers we have to choose from and the myriad of decorative options we’ve got with Stampin’ UP!  The Daisy Lane and two Daisy Punches are spot-on-perfect for any and everything Spring-y!!  And…the paper.  The Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is gorgeous!!  I hope you like – and will give these a try right now!!

Yesterday we started hardening the transplants.

Toted all the little trays and water-bottle “pots” to just outside the garage door for a little while in the afternoon.  Gotta toughen up the plants in preparation for going in the beds!!

And I cut some daffodils (and a couple of tulip tree flowers!!)

It’s just the best time of year, isn’t it?!?

Finn supervised from the golf-cart.

That’s kind of his jam.  Supervising.

If he had actual hands – not adorable paw-hands, he’d be holding a coffee cup in one hand and have the other in his pocket in the ways of site supervisors the world over.

No offense to site supervisors! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Sneak Peek for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Celebrate Spring!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

Park.  Territorial.  Burpee’s.  Johnny’s.  Those names sound familiar to you?  Well – if they do, then you understand the terrible and wonderful temptation that comes every spring in the mailbox.  SEED CATALOGS!  Filled with page after page of flowers and vegetables and herbs, just waiting for a gardening genius like myself to plant them and bring their bounty to life.  When the catalogs arrive, I am suddenly and acutely struck with a GREEN THUMB fantasy.  In this fantasy – I plant all the beautiful flowers I see in all the seed catalogs.  They’re all in JUST the right place to get the right sun, I’ll weed them every day, water when they require it, deadhead to ensure bountiful flowers….on and on and on.  And – I’ll cut bundles and oodles of beautiful blooms that I will then artfully arrange in one of my many shabby chic farmhouse-perfect flower holders that are stored in my perfect pantry…..

And then?  I realize…I better put my spring flowers on a card.  Cuz…THAT, I really CAN do.  And that’s what I did for you today.  I put some new Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to work with daisies from the new Ornate Style stamp set and a few die cut beauties from the Ornate Layers Die set.  Take a look-see:

Now – this Ornate Garden Suite will be available to y’all on 1 April (no joke!).  Or…you COULD get it right now.  Give me a shout if you’d like to find out how!

This is a fun-fold card, but the layout for the front is inspired by the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I started by cutting the Old Olive card base to 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″  and scoring it at 3 1/4″.   That makes the front of the card just 3 1/4″ wide.

I matted a piece of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on Terracotta Tile and adhered it to the small card front with Liquid Glue.

With a die in the new Ornate Layers Die set, I cut a rectangle frame from Terracotta Tile.

Using Liquid Glue on the left side of the die – to about 1″ from the right edge – I adhered the die cut to the card front, letting the edge hang over as you can see in the photo above.  Be sure not to get glue on the exposed part of the die cut – if you do, wipe it with a damp cloth quickly, or wait until it dries and rub it off with a gum eraser! 🙂

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped a daisy from the Ornate Style stamp set (part of the new Suite coming on 1 April!) in Tuxedo Black.  I started with the flower in the middle.  Then I added the second flower on the right.

I fussy cut two masks of the image from sticky notes and covered the first two flowers before adding the third (the one on the left).

I picked up the masks and colored the leaves with my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack.  For the flowers, I used my So Saffron Combo Pack – only coloring the middle and about half of each petal.  I also used my Light Mango Melody Blend near the middle.  Finally, I used the Color Lifter to blur the edges of the colored parts of the petals. The panel is adhered with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped the large sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Old Olive on a piece of Whisper White.  Using the “I’m” and “for all your help” sentiment images, I added them in Terracotta Tile, tucked right up to the first sentiment.

I used the long rectangle die in the Ornate Layers Die set to cut the sentiment and then popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added another Ornate Thanks sentiment in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, in stamped-off-once Tuxedo Black, I added the daisy image.  I used just the Light So Saffron Blend and a smidge of Light Mango Melody Blend to lightly color just the flower.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into the Old Olive card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the daisy in full-strength Tuxedo Black and colored with the Blends on the front…

…and a little more of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So….are you excited to get the new Ornate Garden Suite – with the beautiful Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style bundles with those wonderful images and die sets??  Between those, and the lovely spring-flower-strewn Ornate Garden Specialty DSP, this suite is one you WILL want!  I promise.  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!  You’ll be able to pick up all the new Suite goodies on 1 April.

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Karen’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Shirley’s been up to!
