Simply Sunday: Memories & More

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing a product that was designed to save you time but gives you a beautiful finished product! You can create cards, scrapbook pages and more. Let me introduce you to the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack …

Sit back and watch this quick video that shows you everything that is included in the card pack.

Stampin’ Up!’s Memories & More Card Packs are so versatile! The Petal Passion Card Pack coordinates with the Petal Passion suite, and is available exclusively in the 2018 occasions (spring/summer) catalog.

This is such a cute Product Suite … you can find it on pages 22 through 24 of the Occasions Catalog.  I love that the card kit coordinates with the bundle!

Please remember that the Petal Passion Memories & More Card pack will retire at the end of May. Don’t wait too long though because retired products are “only available while supplies last”.  ALL Bundles also retire!!

Thank you for joining me today ~

Enjoy your Sunday!


Two for Tuesday: Petal Passion Suite

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have two beautiful cards I would like to share with you from the Petal Passion Product suite found on pages 22 and 23 of your Occasions Catalog. These are the two cards that my January Clubs made …. we focused on using all the elements of the Petal Passion product suite and it’s versatility.

First I would like to share our Valentines Card which could also be used as a wedding card with the addition of another heart …

The simple yet beautiful card showcases most of the product suite: the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper, one of the folders in the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, the Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon, and the Petal Palette Stamp Set and Petals & More Thinlits Dies.

The heart cut from Real Red Cardstock comes from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies and adds a finishing touch to our card. We used the Rhinestones which can be colored with your Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Our second card is even more beautiful! I chose a simple yet beautiful color pallet of Basic Gray and Pink Pirouette with a Whisper White base and a splash of Silver …

My celebrate card highlights more of the dies on this card and the use of the BigShot. Let’s begin with our beautiful background … the New Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic embossing folder leaves a stunning impression … WOW!

Our hand stamped bird was cut out with the coordinating die from our Petal Passion Bundle as were the delicate branch and what I call the “lattice” piece … Love that!!

The “Celebrate” is cut from our Silver Foil and comes from our Level 2 Sale-A-Bration Catalog … an exclusive item you can get FREE with a purchase of $100 (before ship & hdlg) This is the first year that Stampin’ Up! is offering 2 Levels of FREE Rewards with your purchases during Sale-A-Bration … it’s so cool.

Let me know if you have any questions about any of the products listed or about our Sale-a-bration!

Thank you for stopping back and checking out my blog post today. I think you will enjoy this product suite as much as we did playing with it.

Have a great day ~

Passion for Coloring

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy New Year!! Today I’m back to share another card that features the Petal Passion Designer Series paper … and I’ve grabbed my Stampin’ Blends! The patterns in the Designer paper are so fun to color and what better to start with but the Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin’ Blends are really easy to use. I begin with my lighter of the two colors and then I go over the areas I want darker with the darker of the two … then I go back over with the lighter color and blend (soften) any harsh lines that were created when coloring.

My Stampin’ Blends colors are; Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry with a touch of the Light Pool Party! Plus, I’ve added the Wink of Stella onto a couple small flowers to maintain the white but add some sparkle.

I also used the Color Lifter to pull up a little color and add some highlighted areas to the petals. This picture not only shows the highlights but you can also see the Wink of Stella and the Clear/Glimmer Epoxy Shapes. (Did you know you could color these with your Stampin’ Blends?!)

The Stampin’ Blends are fun and easy to use and coloring is a great way to relax and color away the stress. That should check off one of your New Years Resolutions … take care of yourself more often and relax!!

Let’s not forget our greeting … it comes from the Petal Pallet which is part of the Petal Pallet bundle. Love the 10% savings when I purchase the bundles!!

Thank you for joining me on this New Years Day … that’s how I like starting my new year, with friends!

Have a wonderful and relaxing day ~
