People are so creative!

Look at this adorable and timely card my friend Amanda D. sent to me! And how did she know this was one of my favorite paper packs of all time? I don’t think she did – we just happen to share similar tastes, I discovered. I miss you too, Amanda! Miss our stamping together. 🙂

I just had to share with you all. It looks like this type of card will be relevant for quite some time.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Here are 2 cards using the Plaid Tidings DSP in the Holiday Mini catalog. I LOVE plaid and these papers come in 6″ x 6″ so are perfect for creating cards. This above card uses a fall color palette and I just love it! The Plaid Tidings DSP doesn’t list the new In Color Bumblebee as one of the colors, but I used it and I think it works. I wanted to use the adorable Bumblebee ribbon and cardstock, so I just went for it!

The one above has a bit of a mistake on it – I used 2 different grays – oops! But I don’t mind, and actually in person it looks better because the white isn’t as pronounced as it appears here in the photo – it just evens it out I guess.

Now for the information on the paper sale!

You are the best

Here’s a card I made using some items from the In Good Taste Suite, found on pages 122-124 of the 2020-2021 catalog.

I love everything about this suite. While this card has a feminine feel, the suite really has great options for masculine projects as well, mostly due to the amazing In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. I just love how everything coordinates. And the paper is a dream! There are also twice as many sheets in this pack than regular DSP packs. You can save 10% by ordering the Tasteful Touches Bundle, which includes the Tasteful Touches stamp set and Tasteful Labels Dies!

Since I don’t yet have the Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends, I just stamped the flower in Rococo Rose ink, then very carefully added more color with the Blender Pens dipped in some ink. I either push the ink pad lid down to get some ink on the inside of the lid and use that, or it’s actually easier to just put a drop of ink from the ink refill inside the lid, then use the Blender Pen to pick up some of that ink. You do have to go easy on applying with the Blender Pen so as not to rough up the Whisper White cardstock. Prolonged rubbing will start to erode the paper a bit. A great alternative would be to use some Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper to stamp the flower on and then color it with regular ink.

Witching time already?

The first thing my son said when I showed him this card was, “Isn’t it a little too early for Hallowe’en?” It’s really my fault – I shouldn’t have shown him the card. He doesn’t get it! He likes video games and he’s also super smart. What I didn’t get in smarts – I got in the need to create. Different strokes!

I used two stamp sets for the first time on this card – the Festive Post stamp set from the new mini catalog and the Buffalo Check background stamp, which has been around for awhile but I had never inked it up. The Festive Post stamp set ALSO has images for Christmas/Holiday/Winter and LOVE! It has several images that work perfectly with the Rectangular Postage Stamp punch, definitely one of my very favorites from the new 20-21 catalog!

The trees are from the Snow Front stamp set. I had used that stamp set last year – it’s a great set for winter. I also used a retired color, Delightful Dijon, for the brooms and cardstock with the sentiment. I just didn’t want a bright yellow and there isn’t a current color that I liked better. The bats look a bit blue in the photo, but they are indeed black! The card measures 4 3/4″ x 4″. Supplies used are below.

Anyway, this one came together quickly and now I have time to mail it out to get to the recipient on time! Yes, that’s a thing!

Jade Tiles

I’m using some of my new favorites from the 2020-2021 catalog. If there’s anything green, I’m probably going to like it – and this Just Jade In Color makes me happy. Which is your favorite of the new In Colors?

The card base and darker green ink color is Just Jade. The softer green is Soft Sea Foam. I did copy the card in the catalog pretty much, using the new Today’s Tiles stamp set. Being a photopolymer stamp set, it’s easy to place the coordinating stamps correctly because they are clear. Of course you can use the Stamparatus for perfect placement as well. But for me, it’s easier than getting it out, if you know what I mean. If it were red rubber, that would be different. I used the new Tasteful Labels dies to cut out the sentiment.

Well, that’s all today. I hope you’re staying cool – it’s really, really hot here in TN, ugh! Thank heavens for A/C!

I have a deep respect for nurses. My sister has been a nurse (among other things in the medical professional field) for almost 30 years; what an inspiration to me! It takes someone really special to be a good nurse, and she is definitely one of them.

This was her card this year. I don’t send one every year because it usually sneaks up on me. But this year I was determined to remember and set an alert on my calendar. Even though I’m posting this a day late, she did receive her card in plenty of time and I hear she likes it. 🙂

Most items on this card are retired – I think the only things current are a couple of the card stock colors and adhesives!

I am CRAZY for this paper! I should get another pack before it sells out – as it is retiring! The Layered Leaves embossing folder is also retiring. If you like either of these, be sure to pick them up before they are gone. You can see all the retiring items that are still available here. For more information about the retiring items, go to this blog post.
