Early Release of the Ornate Garden Suite


The Ornate Garden Suite, which will be in the new Annual Catalog that starts in June, has been released early by Stampin' Up! to give you a head start on creating with these new products.

You can see all of the products in the suite by going here to my Online Store.

Here is a card I made using some of the products.


I used a piece of the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper for my layer, and cut out the frame with an Ornate Layers Die.  I used Gold Foil to make it stand out, tied on a piece of Old Olive 1/4" ribbon, and added some Gilded Gems for a bit more embellishment.

My sentiment is from a current set in the Annual Catalog called Rooted in Nature and was stamped in Mint Macaroon Ink to coordinate with my paper. 

The frames are really elegant and you will get 8 different sized dies that will add a nice touch to any of your cards or projects.

Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper

You still have a few days to get your FREE pack of Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper.  It is one of the new Sale-a-bration items that was introduced on March 3rd.  Sale-a-bration ends March 31st.


It is hard to see how pretty the Purple Posy ink looks on my sheet of paper.  I used a Sponge Dauber to add the color, and while the Silver Foil shines, the Purple Posy ink creates a soft background of color.

I added some Purple Posy Ribbon, and my sentiment which is from the Tags in Bloom set which is also a new Sale-a-bration item.  The paper can be yours for FREE with a $50 purchase, and the stamp set FREE with $100 purchase.

I punched my sentiment out with the coordinating Label Me Lovely Punch from the Occasions Catalog and added it to my card using Dimensionals.

Tomorrow, March 24th, Stampin' Up! will introduce a few more Sale-a-bration items.  These will be current items from the Annual Catalog that you can earn for free.  I will post these items tomorrow.

Easter Promise


Here is one of the cards I was going to have the ladies prepare at my March Stamp Class.  Unfortunately, just like the rest of the country right now, we are in self-quarantine so my classes are cancelled for the remainder of the month.

So, I thought I would share this simple Easter card with you.  If you have the materials you can easily recreate it at home.  Even more thankful now for my stamping business and all of my supplies,  because they keep me busy and for a few hours a day I can forget all that is going on with the world and enjoy the quiet moments of creating. 

I stamped my Happy Easter Sentiment before I embossed my Whisper White Layer with the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder #150646, a carryover product from the Holiday Catalog.  I then stamped my Cross using Early Espresso Ink, cut it out with a  Stitched Shape Oval, and added it onto a larger Stitched Shape Oval using Gorgeous Grape Card Stock.

The Stamp Set is #151544 - Easter Promise

It is a simple card, but if you like to send religions Easter Cards it send an appropriate message for the season.

April Paper Pumpkin Sneak Peek Video

With everyone trying to do their best to help stop the spread of the virus, I am so grateful for my Stampin' Up! crafts that help keep me busy, and also allow me the opportunity to share what I do with those who are alone at this time.  I plan on making cards and getting them to my local nursing home so the residents can know they are not alone, even though they are not allowed visitors at this time.

If you are a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber you have your kits to do that come with all of the materials needed so you don't have to worry about going out in this time of self quarantine.

If you do not subscribe and think this is now the time here is a video done by Stampin' Up! that gives you a sneak peek of the April kit.  You can see it here.

Ornate Garden Early Release






Demonstrators were able to preorder the new Ornate Garden Suite on March 3rd, and customers will be able to order it starting April 1st.  These are new products that will be in the next Annual Catalog that you can order before the catalog goes live in June.

Here are some pictures made by Stampin' Up! that showcase some of the products in the suite.





You do not have to purchase the whole suite, you can purchase just the stamp sets and coordinating dies in a bundle to save you 10%, or any of the products separately. I will have more pictures of cards that I have made using these new products in a few days.  My order just arrived last night and I am anxious to start creating with these new products.
