Grateful for Praiseworthy Prose

The Praiseworthy Prose bundle on page 109 of the Annual Catalog pairs a sweet stamp set with a great alphabet die set. You can never have too many alphabet dies! This thank you card uses the “g” die cut out and popped up on dimensionals on a piece of Vellum cardstock that has been punched out and embossed. I think it’s pretty how the Lovely Lipstick ribbon can be seen behind it. I was able to hide the adhesive on the vellum by only using it where the “g” is. I just adore this Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper from the 2020 Sale-a-Bration brochure and am on my second pack. I finished the card off with some of the Pretty Peacock colored rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones pack. Love that color so much!

Beautifully Braided on Stone

The Beautifully Braided stamp set with coordinating punch on page 29 of the 2020 Spring Mini really caught my eye. How clever that you can “braid” ribbon through the border punch! And how clever that there are two stamps that can be stamped on the punched border. I have used the dotted line stamp for this card. The new Stone 3D Embossing Folder available during Sale-a-Bration packs quite a punch with the deep etching. We keep the loveliness going by kissing the flowers and buds with a little Wink of Stella.

Beautifully Braided on Stone

I’m not well versed in flowers, so I don’t know what kind this is supposed to be. But that’s just fine because I can make them whatever color I want. This color combination is so pretty, I thought you might like a photo to Pin. The bold punch of Gorgeous Grape against the deep color of Blueberry Bushel, kept in control with the mellow Soft Sea Foam.

Layers of Kitty Hellos

Aren’t these kitties just too cute? It’s one of those stamp sets I rarely turn to. Why? I have no idea. These kitties make me smile. I used some retired (ret) Designer Series Paper that I was hoarding and the card came together quite quickly. I couldn’t decide which color I liked best for the kitties, so I tried out a few options. I’m leaning towards the gray, but would’ve liked it a little lighter. You can’t see it in the photo, but all the flowers have Wink of Stella on them. The shimmer is so pretty in real life. Next time I feel like coloring, I will dust off the coordinating set Bella & Friends and color in some cute puppies!

Fortunate Break To Go

I’ve been so focused on all the fun new products in the 2018 Occasions catalog that I feel like I’m neglecting all the awesome products I have from the 2017-2018 Annual catalog. I’ve had this adorable set for a while but hadn’t inked it up yet. I thought it would be fun to color it with the Stampin’ Blends…and it was! The Wink of Stella on the heart on the take-out box gives it the perfect touch of dazzle and the little enamel heart is too cute!
