Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I’m excited to share a Sneak Peek with my Celebrating You Card today. It’s a fun combination of what’s in our Annual Catalog with some of our beautiful NEW items in the Jan-April Mini Catalog.
If you joined me for my Facebook LIVE yesterday you would have gotten a good look up close to some of these ….
I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the beautiful “Fancy Flora” 6 x 6 Designer Paper (160413) it’s so pretty and I love the painted look of it. I paired this pattern with Starry Sky even though the coordinating colors are Night of Navy and Orchid Oasis … I thought it made a bolder statement, and with the varying shades of blue I though it matched well.
Now, let’s talk about that butterfly – I chose one from the Brilliant Wings dies and had to try the NEW Fine Shimmer paper (160428). I misquoted you the colors last night, they are actually Soft Succulent, Fresh Freesia, and Gold … that makes much more sense!! AND it coordinates with the Fancy Flora designer paper I used (it’s even on the same page in the Mini Catalog).
I’m hoping those butterflies don’t fly away when the Annual Catalog retires in April … if you don’t have them already, you will want them in your dies collection.
I had to get a close up to show you the FINE glimmer on this paper… it really is stunning. My lighting does it no justice (I see an investment in some new lighting equipment needed – lol). You will also see the Adhesive Backed Milky Dots … I love those colors!!
I used the greeting from our Celebrating You stamp set and punched it with the Double Oval Punch. You could also stamp directly onto the paper but I didn’t want to loose that greeting because your eye is drawn right to the butterfly.
I hope you enjoyed this quick sneak peek and if you’d like to see the REPLAY of last nights “Walk Through” you can head over to my Facebook page or I’ll have it posted tomorrow on YouTube.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day ~
