Last Chance for Tags in Bloom!

Another awesome Sale-a-Bration is coming to a close today. This is your last chance to earn Tags in Bloom – a gorgeous photopolymer stamp set that coordinates with two new punches.  This card features not only a Sale-a-Bration stamp set, but also the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP that is only available through today. I decided to use some of the 2018-2020 In Colors that will be retiring this summer – Call Me Clover, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch. Stock up on those goodies before they are gone forever, too!

Lily Impressions with Retiring Colors

I will be the first to admit that I have not utilized the 2018-2020 In Colors quite as much the past few months. It was nice pulling out Grapefruit Grove (which I love immensely) and Lovely Lipstick (shocking pinkness) to use as layering colors for these cards. They pop beautifully against the Blackberry Bliss card bases and coordinate perfectly with the absolutely stunning Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper.

Lily Impressons DSP

I used a new punch called Label Me Lovely to accent the die cut circle with the sweet sentiment from Power of Hope. Both the Lily Impressions DSP and the Power of Hope stamp set are part of the 2020 Sale-a-Bration promotion and cannot be purchased…but you can earn them FREE while supplies last. The finale are the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots on each side of the sentiment. All products (not just the ones used here) using 2018-2020 In Colors will be retiring on June 1st, but if these are like any of the past colors, they will sell out before then, so don’t wait. Scroll down to see the five colors.

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.

Bushel of Healing Hugs

There’s a sweet lady I know that, unfortunately, needed surgery. Before I even sat down at my craft table to create her a card, I knew I wanted to use the Healing Hugs stamp set. I also knew I wanted the rose to be stamped in Blueberry Bushel. I was inspired by a bold card I had spotted online. I decided to pair it with a very pale green for the leaves to help intensify the already brilliant blue. I had just received the Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder from my beautiful man in brown (UPS driver) earlier that day and thought it would be just lovely as the background texture.

Bushel of Healing Hugs

I colored the Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends marker. Usually I struggle to remove the jewels with my paper snips or paper piercer, trying to make sure the adhesive on the back comes off with the jewels and doesn’t stick to the paper backing. Let’s talk about this for just a moment. This time, I used the new Take Your Pick tool and it was a dream! This new multipurpose tool includes a piercer, stylus and putty to pick up small items…and a spatula! The spatula slipped right under my pearls and I am tickled pink! You simply MUST get one! Here’s a quick 3 minute YouTube video that shows all the bells and whistles:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nihh0cc81pU&feature=youtu.be
