I love to make people feel good and happy about their accomplishments, big or small, and I can never get enough of the smiles and pride I see on my customers' faces when they look at a finished project.

Last Chance In-Colour Inspiration


Combing old and new - getting the best of both worlds



This month's Colour Inspiration combines the outgoing 2018-2020 In-Colours with the early release Ornate Garden Suite. I think you'll like the results!
I am feeling a bit nostalgic, the Retirement List has been released, and I know we will be saying goodbye to some of our stamps and accessories, and one of the things going are the 2018-2020 In-Colours.

I decided to bring you an extra Colour Inspiration this month. We get the best of both worlds by combining some of the outgoing 2018-2020 In-Colours with the early release Ornate Garden Suite and a top-pick from the Mini Catalogue, Painted Poppies stamp set!

The bright, bold 2018-2020 In-Colours are fun and ideal for creating birthday and floral themes. I selected Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, and Lovely Lipstick to feature since I think they make gorgeous, happy floral cards for Spring!

The first card features the early release Ornate Garden Suite. The flower image is front the Ornate Style stamp set (#152572) and the greeting is part of the Ornate Thanks stamp set (#149471). The colouring is done with the 2018-2020 In-Colour Stampin' Write Markers (#147159). This card is rich in texture and uses both the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder (#152725) and the Ornate Layers Dies (#152726).

The second card features the Peaceful Poppies Suite from the Mini Catalogue. The main floral image is crated using the Painted Poppies stamp set (#151599) and the greeting comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (#151595). The colouring is done with the 2018-2020 In-Colour Stampin' Write Markers (#147159) and sponging. I also used the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder (#152725) for the background texture on this card, the small floral patter is so versatile you will use it a lot! This card also uses the Pretty Label Punch (#143715) and Lovely Lipstick 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon.
