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!

Pocket Full of Springtime Posies

I am in love with the soft lavender shade of the new In Color Purple Posy. I was saddened to find out that we currently are unable to order Purple Posy Classic Ink Pads or Ink Refills. I had to wait until the catalog release to order the color in the Stampin’ Blends alcohol ink Marker and Stampin’ Write Marker. I’m so thankful we can at least use these for coloring and stamping. I’m also thankful that Stampin’ Up is committed to bringing us top-notch, quality products and aren’t settling for anything subpar. I’m sure the manufacturer will get the ink pads and ink refills up to standard so we can then purchase them. In the meantime, it’s the old-fashioned way of stamping – using the Stampin’ Write Marker directly onto the stamp. I find the quality is just fine when using red rubber stamps. This is how I was able to stamp the sentiment on this card. I used the Stampin’ Blends Marker to color the Pearl Basic Jewels so they would match. I thought out of the box with the Scalloped Linen Ribbon and cut the Purple Posy edging away from the linen in the center. Look closely and you’ll see that the Basic Black layer has been dry embossed with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder. I just love how the Purple Posy pops on the black background. And tell me again why I so rarely use the Springtime Impressions dies? So pretty!

Woven Heirlooms Sneak Peek

To say I’m in love with the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper is an understatement. This color combination conjures up fond memories of my grandparents. As a teen, I would spend almost every weekend at their house. If you walked into my Grandfather’s bedroom or bathroom, you would be surrounded in shades of Seaside Spray. If you walked into my Grandmother’s, you would be immersed in shades of Rococo Rose. These two new 2019-2021 In Colors evoke so much nostalgia, you’ll probably be seeing a lot more of them in upcoming samples. Scroll down to see all five of the new In Colors. I stamped the sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Terracotta Tile. I used 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots for a little sparkle. The pièce de résistance is the exquisite Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon. All of these lovely items will be available to purchase when the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goes live on June 4th. Mark your calendars for the evening of Monday, June 17th if you’d like to see this card in person!
