MANY MATES IN GREEN

It’s the day to focus on green.  There are some beautiful new designer papers in Stampin’ Up!’s new Annual Catalogue so today’s card features the Forever Greenery designer paper(152492).

What do you think of the colour combination?  Just Jade and Purple Posy from each of the InColour collections.

All this card needed was a good greeting and Many Mates was the perfect choice.

I am playing along with The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week and choose purple, die cut and birthday. (I frequently use the “thinking of you” sentiment for birthdays).

Here’s the list of products used.  Please note that I am still using our SNAIL Adhesive but will be getting the new Stampin’ Seal very soon.

ONE HAPPY SUNFLOWER

It’s Tuesday already, the second day of June!  But I’m happy about that and so is this great big beautiful sunflower.

This bloom is just one of the great images and sentiments that are available in the new Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.  Don’t worry, it will be available to you tomorrow, June 3rd!

I used a variety of Stampin’ Blends to colour this beauty and backed the whole card up with the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder(151801).

The layout to showcase this beautiful sunflower comes from the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

FOREVER GREENERY

Well, it’s Friday and the theme for today is green!  I absolutely love the many shades of green and designs in the new Forever Greenery designer paper package and this card highlights a few of them.

I started off with a card base using the new InColor Just Jade and  added the plaid ribbon from the new Flowers for Every Season ribbon combo.  The die cuts were a “lightbulb” moment and are from the Garden Gateway dies(151512).

The whole idea behind the layout of this card came from Freshly Made Sketches and WOW, it was a challenging one to use.

I played around with this for a long while, lol!  However, I do like the finished product and will be sending it off to a friend for their birthday.

Here’s the product list.

WHEN IN DOUBT CASE THE CATALOGUE

Whenever I am “stuck” as to how to use a new stamp set and dies, I CASE(Copy and Share Everything) the catalogue.  So today’s card is my interpretation of a card in the new 2020-2021 Catalogue(page 43).

This was created using the Many Mates Bundle and those dies are interesting and a little challenging to use.  But, following along with the picture, I was able to get it done!

After cutting out the medallion pattern, I brushed extra colour on by using the Smoky Slate ink pad and then glued it down using the Fine-Tip glue pen.  This card uses quite a few new items, Misty Moonlight 1/2″ twill ribbon, Flowers for every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and the In Good Taste Elements.

Here’s the list of products used.

I’ve been playing around with other new items and will be posting them as well.

In the meantime, have a great day and happy stamping to you!

A LITTLE NEW – A LITTLE OLD

Hello and welcome!  Today’s post uses some “old” products and one new product!

By “old” I mean the two stamp sets used for this card – But – the silver lining is that they will be moving to the “new” catalogue!  I used the fabulous Good Morning Magnolia Bundle(151087)  (save 10%) paired up with Itty Bitty Greetings!

Since the Garden Lane designer paper is such lovely, soft greens, I decided to colour the flowers in green too.  I love the softness contrasted with the dark green frame.  (New Many Medallions dies)

Of course, I like to play along with challenges and today’s card follows along with the new Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Here’s the product list for you.

WELCOME THIS NEW TASTEFUL TOUCHES SUITE

Whenever I have new stuff, I just have to play with it!  So today’s card is showing off piece of the new Tasteful Touches Suite.

I paired it up with Seaside Spray cardstock, ink and the matching ribbon for a clean card.  That lovely designer paper background is part of the Tasteful Texture Suite and is called In Good Taste.  Looks real doesn’t it?

This simple card came from wanting to play along with the new challenge from The Paper Players.

This card would make a great anniversary, birthday or Father’s day card, you choose!

Here’s the modified list of products used because I can’t show the new stuff just yet.  Just the finished project.

HAVE A LOVELY BIRTHDAY

Birthdays are blooming here along with the flowers!  I’m also happy to report that the trees are budding and showing a light touch of green!  A good sign that spring is arriving here in northeastern BC, Canada!

So, to celebrate both a birthday and blooming flowers, I created this card!

Soft Sea Foam was the perfect choice to echo the soft green leaves that are budding around us.  I also choose to use soft colours for the flowers and added a touch of bling with our Rhinestone basic jewels.

This very clean and simple layout comes from the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

Sometimes clean and simple is best so the focus will stand out just a little more.  Especially when using soft, light colours!

IT’S A BEAUTY

To end this week with a little beauty, I’ve created a card with a beautiful soft purple flower!

I loved putting Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green together, it’s such a bright and happy combination!  I used the Band Together Bundle(151076) for this and “spoiler alert” both the stamp set and dies are in the new 2020-2021 Catalogue!  However – they will not be a bundle, so I recommend that you save 10% by getting it before the end of this month!

MY CUTE FRIEND

I’m giggling while posting this cute friend card today.  After all, who doesn’t like dinosaurs!

This really cute Dino Days Bundle(151139) is available right now as a bundle.  It is going to the new 2020-2021 Catalogue but the stamp set and dies will be sold separately so if you get it now you will save 10%!

CAS(E) this sketch posted this great layout to follow which is where I got the idea for this card.

Of course, the Dinoroar designer paper is going away so I just had to use a couple of designs.  It’s also a great way to use up the scraps in the package!

Here’s the full list of products used.

WHAT THE BIRDS SAY……….

What are the birds saying with their lovely songs?  I don’t know but I sure do love listening to them sing!  So, I was inspired to create this card with the Free As A Bird(149468) stamp set.

Of course, the card isn’t complete with a piece of the coordinating Bird Ballad designer paper(149592)!  It’s going away soon so make sure to get it to add to your collection!

I did some masking on the stamp in order to get that pretty trio of singing birds.  Just use a couple of pieces of scotch tape to cover up the parts of the image that you don’t want showing.  Make sure to remove the tape before stamping!

Here’s the product list for you.
