Come Sail Away Memories & More Quick Card

Have you ever needed to put together a quick card? Perhaps you’ve noticed the Memories & More Card Packs in the Annual Catalog. If not, they are found on page 171. They are designed for quick and easy scrapbooks. But they also make great pieces for quick cards, too. I used the Come Sail Away pack that coordinates with the Come Sail Away Suite on pages 144-145. Just one pre-printed card pack piece, two pieces of cardstock (Balmy Blue & Night of Navy) and one embellishment from the Sail Away Trinkets. No ink or stamps needed!

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.

Timeless Tea Tin

I simply adore the new Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper available in the new 2020 Spring Mini. I performed a little cutting magic with the Stitched So Sweetly die I used. It is scalloped on all four sides, but I cut off the top and bottom scallops using the new Mini Paper Cutter, which is perfect for small precision cuts. What a great way to decorate one of the Copper Tea Tins (available in the Annual Catalog), right? I filled the tin with a delicious tea called Made From Love made by the company Friday Teas. This would make a great Mother’s Day gift…although I’m probably jumping the gun on that. That’s ok, though, since I gifted it to myself! Perfectly restful and relaxing!

Snowball Juggling in a Winter Wonderland

Here’s another fun card from the Let It Snow Suite on pages 18-21 of the Holiday Catalog. I told you yesterday I would play with the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint soon…and I couldn’t stop thinking about it until I did it! With this card, I wanted to show off the sparkling glitter on the trees, so I opted for the smaller, snowball juggling snowman and placed him off to the side. I’m sorry you can’t see that detail on the paper, but believe me…it’s there! I decided to stamp the inside with the sentiment “Winter Wonderland” from Everything Festive because that’s all I could think about with those fun trees.

Snowman Juggling in a Winter Wonderland

Here’s a close up of the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint. It’s so much fun! Just make sure your heat tool is already hot when you start and it only takes a few seconds to see it change from liquid to puff! Oh – and if you look at the middle tree above the snowman, you can catch a little glimpse of the glitter on the tree.

Focus on Pretty Peacock

I adore all the new 2019-2021 In Colors, but Pretty Peacock is definitely my favorite. Here’s a quick and easy card focusing on that gorgeous, regal color. The script side of the double sided Designer Series Paper flows perfectly with the lovely font of the sentiment from the Floral Essence stamp set. The Scalloped Linen Ribbon adds just the right amount of texture and the Faceted Dots give a sprinkle of sparkle. A naturally charming card!

#JOSTTT006 June Challenge – Perennial Beauty

Time for a new monthly challenge over at The Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe challenge blog (check it out here)! I was super excited to be named one of their top 3 for last month’s May challenge. (You can see my entry here.)JOSTTT Top 3Here’s the #JOSTTT006 June Challenge:#JOSTTT006I did the second row: Pattern Paper – Banner – Floral

I am featuring items from the Perennial Essence Suite on pages 106-107 of the new Annual Catalog. This Designer Series Paper…Oh My! It is beyond beautiful! I kept the card simple to highlight this gorgeous paper. The Vellum cardstock is soft and pretty and the Floral Centers are amazing! Just like it’s from a real flower! Wrap it all up with the coordinating Perennial Flower Punch and you have a quick and easy card.

I first stamped the sentiment in Crushed Curry and I really liked it since it’s the same color as the Floral Center. However, when I showed it to Queen Hunter, she said she would prefer it stamped in Blackberry Bliss. Hence, two cards showing both options.

Watercolor Wishes Quick and Simple

I decided to dust off a couple retired products – we all have them and we all need to use them more! A couple years ago, there was a beautiful card kit called Watercolor Wishes. I just love the stamp set and knew the “You’re Amazing” sentiment was the perfect size for the 1″ slot I created. This layout is super easy – just cut your top layer piece 1″ shorter than a standard layer. Then, put it in the trimmer at whatever angle suits you and give it a cut. Glue it down with the end borders even and…TADA! A quick, easy way to add interest to your card!  Isn’t this Designer Series Paper just adorable? It’s only available for a couple more days – free with a $50 minimum purchase – during Sale-a-Bration!

The other dusty items on these cards are the Brights Collection Buttons. OMGoodness…I have no idea how old they must be! Anyone care to guess? I topped the buttons with some Whisper White Baker’s Twine tied in a triple bow. I first made a standard bow, but the twine was a bit too small for the scale of the buttons.
