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!

Stitched Lace Die & a Butterfly

Sorry about my absence on here…I had a visit from an awesome person that I don’t get to see very often. His arrival even trumped me opening an Annual Catalog pre-order box!  Today’s card is so simple, but looks stunning with the new Stitched Lace Dies that I know you will want – and you can get your hands on them when the catalog goes live on June 4th. Or, for even more fun, mark your calendar for my Annual Catalog Kick-Off Open House on Monday, June 17th and you can see it in real life. I’ll have more details for you coming up.

So back to this die set. It has one piece that is 5 7/8” x 4 5/16”, which will cover a complete card front. Then, there is an awesome second piece in which you can cut the scalloped shape shorter, either vertically or horizontally. When I made this card, the row I die cut out became a pretty doily style strip that I’ll use on another card. Oh my! And it even has a coordinating stamp set!

This card also uses a new 2019-2021 In Color called Rococo Rose. (Hunter said it sounded like a rapper’s name…hahahaha!) I love how soft and muted it is. So pretty in real life. (Please note the ink color and cardstock color are the same. Unfortunately, I am terrible at taking pictures. I definitely need Sydney’s camera skills.)  I also used the Butterfly Duet Punch and coordinating Butterfly Gala stamp set that were introduced in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. Perfect Simplicity!

Flowing Fountain of Sympathy

Today’s card features a stamp set on page 41 in the upcoming 2019 Occasions Catalog. I have a feeling that this one may be overlooked by many people. It’s not bright and flashy. It a simple, sweet stamp set with lovely sentiments. I plan on using it for some upcoming #simplestamping projects. Stay tuned for more info on that.

And don’t forget that you can use the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers to color the Pearl Basic Jewels. It’s so nice just keeping a stock of both the Pearls as well as the Rhinestones and coloring them whenever I need matching embellishments.

Stamp Set:  Flowing Fountain
Cardstock: Highland Heather, So Saffron, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Highland Heather
Stampin’ Blends:  Dark Mango Melody

Subtle Flowering Desert Sneak Peek

Sorry it’s been a couple weeks since my last post, but I was lucky enough to have my son home for 10 days for Christmas and I enjoyed all my time with him. I’ll be sharing the card I tucked into his backpack with you tomorrow. It’s pretty darn funny.

I finally inked up the beautiful stamps in the Flowering Desert set last night. I have never lived in a desert region, nor have I ever visited a desert region, but I am always drawn to desert style stamps. There’s something about the loneliness and isolation a desert represents that makes me wistful for quiet and peace. As soon as my eyes gazed upon page 29 in the upcoming Occasions Catalog, I knew this stamp set would be the first one I ordered. Flowering Desert SetThe Soft Suede layer is embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. It does just what the name implies – creates a subtle texture that is so pleasing to the eye. This set will be available beginning January 3, 2019 so get your wish list ready!

I am also loving the trio of colors I chose for this card. The Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede are quiet and soft…and then Melon Mambo comes along for an awesome pop of color to brighten everything up!
