Pineapple Punch


This new IN COLOR speaks for its self....it packs a PUNCH of yellow like we have not seen in the Color Palette since Yo Yo Yellow.  Any shade of Yellow paired with Black makes a great combo.  Today I used one of my last sheets of the Tutti Fruit 6X6 paper stack.  SO sad to see this paper retire!


Yet so Happy that the Petal Pair embossing folders will be in the NEW catalog!  I embossed the right edge and added the Designer paper to the Left.  Cut an Oval with the Layering Ovals Framelits.  I used a Sentiment and the Flowers from the "Gotta Have It All" bundle.


Another clip from the Embellishment kit adds some interest to the Popped up Oval.

Call Me Clover and let's MIX some Patterns!

Today I am debuting another new IN COLOR....Call Me Clover....a true green.  This color is NOT in the Share What You Love paper stack, but I feel it works?  What do you think?  A few years ago at Stampin' Up Convention I took a class titled "Pattern Mixing Pro."  Applying some of those techniques to this card.


Pattern and Color mixing can be a challenge, but if you get it right.....not sure if this is the sweet spot, but it is close!  The actual colors in the Background Designer paper are Grapefruit Grove, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Tranquil Tide and Mint Macaron.  I pulled more of the Grapefruit Grove forward with the Script pattern in a pale Grapefruit Grove.  The Grapefruit Grove 1/8 Grosgrain ribbon really pops and ties back to the background paper.


The Sentiment and the Stamping tie back to the Call Me Clover card base.  The stems mimic the stems in the Designer paper.  I used the Ovals from the Stitched Framelits and a Grapefruit Grove clip from the FREE embellishment kit if you buy the bundle. 

Stitched Shapes Framelits  145372  $30.00



1/8 inch Grosgrain ribbon will be available June 1st in ALL 5 NEW IN COLORS!!

Lovely Lipstick Tulips

I have a confession, I have avoided this stamp set.....that does not happen very often, especially with flowers!  I love flowers, the ones that occur in Nature really attract my attention.  So after seeing Beautiful card after Beautiful card I have added this Hostess set to my collection.  Tranquil Tulips


This set is a 2 step stamp and using 2 Colors gives you the BEST look!  I used Powder Pink and Lovely Lipstick for the Tulips.  Pear Pizzazz for the stems and leaves.  A Lovely Lipstick card base and Powder Pink ribbon.


You can see the 2 step stamping in this close up and how finely woven this ribbon is available in the 2017-18 IN Colors and ON SALE!



Tranquil Tulips Hostess set  143767  $10.00 with a $150 qualifying order.  Purchase the "Gotta Have it All" bundle and a little more and choose this Hostess set.  Available until May 31st.

This Color is very Unique.....not too orange and Beautiful when paired with this pattern of the Share what you Love paper.  This is my favorite paper pack of ALL TIME!!  The colors are amazing and the only way to purchase until June 1st is the "Gotta have it all Bundle".


I used one of the tags in the embellishment kit.  Stamped the splotch and then the Floral image.  I managed to use some ribbon retired last year...oops, I need to get this ribbon under control!!!

Grad Balloons

Every Graduation needs some balloons!  If you know the school colors all the better, if not make it BRIGHT!  And this paper stack has the colors, some are retiring, so get them before they are GONE!!



I started with a Island Indigo card base and the Picture Perfect Party paper stack.  Used the Balloon Builder punch to punch a Peek a Boo Peach, Berry Burst and Island Indigo balloon.  I then stamped Happy on each balloon.  Adhered a strip of Lemon Lime Twist card stock and the paper to the card front.  The Grad hat is made with the Tailored Tag punch.  Bakers twine makes great Balloon strings and the Hat and punched sentiment are popped up over the strings.  Sentiments are from Thoughtful Banners which is carrying over to the new Catalog!


So many options with this punch and ALL the Sentiments!  This would make an awesome Birthday card!

Tailored Tag punch  145667  $18.00

I hand cut the Hat and it is still a bit BIG, but trying to cover all the hat on the Original Girl!  Black 3/8 shimmer ribbon is frayed and added as a Tassel with the Rhinestone.   Congrats is from Floral Phrases, a GREAT set with a Beautiful Font.
