Something to Stamp Saturday
Global Design Project #191

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for stopping in on this Saturday morning. I love having my weekends free from work and have time to stamp. Of course laundry is going too. Today I am submitting my project for the Global Design Project #191 sketch challenge. This week it's all about bees, birds, and butterflies. This perfect for spring into summer seasons.

The project I've created uses the Bird Ballad Laser Cut cards from the upcoming Stampin' Up! Annual catalog. The cards are part of the Bird Ballad Suite of products. There are so many wonderful things in the suite, I just don't know where to start.

The Stitched Label Nestled dies are perfect for your focal point on your card. I used 2 layering for the center image and saying. I love the soft bird and branch behind the saying. 

I love the 3/8" Scalloped Lace Trim. It is so pretty! The other great accessory is the Bird Ballad Trinkets. I laid them out in my first picture. They are so nice and add a bit of vintage feel to your projects. Be sure to check out more project submitted to the GDP#191 Challenge.

There are just a few days before the new annual catalog goes live. I would suggest that when you shop, consider purchasing the whole suite of products when they are available. All of the products in the suite go so well together and they provide you with endless possibilities. 

Thanks again for stopping in. Be sure to follow me for more posts and specials. Also, don't miss out on June's Paper Pumpkin kit. There are lots of reasons to spread a little kindness.

Wonderful Wednesday Daisy lane Stamp Set

Hi Everyone, I'm so glad you decided to stop in today. It is an exciting time with the anticipation of the new 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. Many demonstrators went to the On-Stage Event where we all go the new catalog and the Daisy Lane Stamp set. I then received the Birch Background stamp in Prize Patrol. I decided to put both sets together and see what I could create.
For this project, I used the Notecards and Envelopes. I think these make the perfect sized project for something quick and easy.Crumb Cakewas used for the Birch Background Stamp. I stamped off for a lighter background. How cute are the daisies? I stamped them onto the card front with Flirty Flamingo. Then I stamped 2 more on scrap whisper white and punched them out with the large Daisy Punch
In the Daisy Lane Bundle, there is a small daisy punch as well. This set will coordinate with the current Daisy Delight Stamp Set
Before we can get too excited about the new …
# Daisy Lane Winner  Announced
Hi Everyone, Welcome to my blog today. As promised, I am posting to announce a winner of my Daisy Lane Stamp set give-away. There has been a chance to win for a couple of weeks now. You can see my original post for the details. I also recently hosted a swap and would like to share some projects using the Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinating punch. The card above was created by my friend, Bonnie W. I love her color choices.

One of the things I love about hosting a swap that features products in Stampin' Up! catalogs is that there are so many talented stampers and the projects all are so different from each other. Susan C. combined the Garden Lane DSP for a wonderful look.

This card was created by Sandy H. She has participated in my swaps many times. Its amazing that she fussy cut the daisies on either side of the center one. There is a medium daisy punch that coordinates with the center daisy.

I'm so glad that Jenny G. decided to use the Perennial Esse…
Must Have Colors Monday 2017-2019 In-Colors Retiring

One of the many awesome features of Stampin Up products is our color coordination. Everything matches, it’s like Gar-animals. Remember those clothes when we were kids? The monkey tags went with the monkeys, making it easy to dress your kids in matching clothes. Stampin up is like the Gar-animals of paper crafts lol. Stampin Up has 5 Color Collections: Regals, Subtles, Brights, Neutrals and In Colors.  The In Color collection is a little different from our Core Collection. It’s broken down into 2 groups of 5. Each year 5 of these 10 colors go away, and we get 5 new colors. It’s a great way to introduce fresh and trendy colors. The In Color Collections are named by the year they were introduced and the year they will be retired. For example the collection retiring this year is named 2017-2019 In Colors. They are retired with the Annual Catalog officially retiring June 3, 2019 (t…
