Unexpected Combo

Hi stampers!  So I have another card with a color combo that came about by looking at my scrap pile!  It's such good inspiration because things just get thrown together!  I don't think I'd have ever paired these together on my own.  And I haven't used the new Petal Pink much but I think I like it!  It's a very pretty pink that's a little more on the peach side, or at least it seems it to me.  I paired it here with Lemon Lime Twist and Shaded Spruce which I can't stop using.  It's so funny, when I first saw it, I said I won't need a full pack of that until closer to Christmas.  WRONG!  LOL!

I had also been meaning to use this background stamp so I had it stamped and just sitting there on my desk to I decided to pair it with this combo and I think it worked!  I think that this set will work great with many of our sets, including Wood Words which I used here!

I realized my circle was a little squashed after I edited my photo, I will fix that on the actual card.   And speaking of that circle, it's part of the new Stitched Labels Framelits and they are so fun!  I used a LOT of dies here even though it's a pretty simple card.

The new Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins are quickly becoming a favorite as well.  Just pop them off and stick them on your project!

Fab Friday 140

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday once again!  This week's Fab Friday challenge is all about the brand new in colors!  Boy are they bright!  I'm not a huge fan of primary colors, but these are growing on me!  Here's your chance to try them out if you haven't.  You can use any or all.  Which one is your favorite?  Your least favorite?  I think my favorite is Blueberry!  I wasn't a fan of Clover but it will grow on me and I'm really coming around to Lipstick!

I wasn't so sure I liked them all paired together but I think my card made me change my mind!  That's usually the case with our in color after I use them for a bit.  I thought they'd look great with Varied Vases and I wasn't wrong!

I think the only think to really note here, is that I stamped my orchid by stamping off once and then coloring the little centers with my Grapefruit Grove marker.  I was really unsure of this one starting out but I think it made a pretty adorable card!

Make sure to check out the rest of the design team and then play along with us and make friends with the new colors if you have not already!

Cue The Confetti

Hi stampers!  I'm back!  Jon was gone all this week and Ian kept me pretty busy so I didn't get around to blogging...again.  He did fall asleep for a bit yesterday so I managed to crank out one card while he snoozed on the couch!

Today, I'm going to show you the card that I gave a sneak peek of over the weekend on my IG.  I'm so happy the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set is in the new catalog!  It's such a cute set!  I will say I've had a bit of trouble using it without the rest of the retired suite (because it was just SO GOOD) but this set stands on it's own for sure!  This card could be a birthday card or used for any occasion that requires confetti!

I also sort of love these colors together!  I'm not sure of the last time I used Pacific Point but they color revamp has given it new life for me!  I paired it with Basic Black, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, and Gorgeous Grape and it was perfect!  I added some of the new Glitter Enamel Dots and that SUPER fun Gorgeous Grape Striped Ribbon.

I just love all the little elements and accents in this set and they all worked so perfectly that I didn't even need a main image!

Big Time Thanks

Hi stampers!  I finally grabbed the framelits to go with the Animal Outing set!  I got this set at OnStage and have been anxiously awaiting the dies!  Don't forget you can order the bundle and geta discount!  Not only do they cut out the cute animals, but they cut out cute accents and backgrounds like this!

I colored my giraffe with my Blends, which are back in stock for the "old" colors now and hopefully the new colors will be available any day now.  SU updated us that they are on the way to the warehouse.

The one Shaded Spruce branch on this card is the key to the whole thing, by the way.  I first made it without and it was just missing something.  Added that in and ta-da!  The card was done!
