Something Old Something New

Today I’m sharing cards I made with  two favorite floral stamp sets from the 2017-2018 annual and occasions catalogs.  I’m glad that both of these sets are carrying over to the new 2018-2019 annual catalog that goes live this Friday, June 1st! The something new is that I have used some of the awesome brand new colors that are part of the Color Revamp.

The first card includes products from the Petal Garden Suite which is being retired.  The Graceful Garden stamp set, Garden Trellis embossing folder and 1/8″ sheer ribbons will, however, be carried over into the new catalog.  The stamp set has two beautiful rose images that are perfect for coloring with watercolor pencils, Stampin’ Write Markers or Stampin’ Blends.  I stamped the large rose image with Jet Black StazOn ink onto Shimmery White cardstock and watercolored it with Lovely Lipstick, Petal Pink and Granny Apple inks using a blender pen.  I matted it onto a piece Petal Pink cardstock that I embossed with the Garden Trellis embossing folder.  I used three Berry Burst glitter enamel dots for a touch of bling.  For an added accent, I used the the Seasoned Layers Thinlits set  to cut a scalloped edge from a one inch strip of the Share What You Love designer paper.

Supplies used: Graceful Garden Stamp Set; Garden Trellis Embossing Folder;  Lovely Lipstick, Petal Pink, Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pads; Jet Black StazOn Ink; Lovely Lipstick, Petal Pink, Shimmery White cardstock; Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper; Glitter Enamel Dots (retiring); Seasonal Layers Thinlits; Blender Pens; Multipurpose Liquid Glue; Big Shot.

This next card features products from the very popular Petal Palette Suite in the 2017-2018 Occasions catalog.  The Petal Palette stamp set and Petals & More Thinlits can be purchased as a bundle with a 10% discount until today, May 31st.  As of June 1st these products will be available in the new catalog but will no longer be sold as a bundle – each product can be purchased separately.  All other products in this suite will be retiring, including the Petal Passion designer series paper, one of my most favorite paper sets in all the years I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  For this card I used Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green cardstock and inks and they sure do pop against the black and white background paper.  I’m loving this color combination and know I will be using it on many future projects!  I used a pearlized doily against a background of the Highland Heather cardstock, which I cut out with one of the scalloped circle dies from the Layering Circle Framelits set.

Supplies used: Petal Palette Stamp Set; Petals & More Thinlits; Layering Circles Framelits; Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather cardstock; Petal Passion designer series paper (retiring); Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pads; Jet Black StazOn ink; Pearlized Doilies; Blender Pens; Multipurpose Liquid Glue; Fine Tip Glue Pen; Big Shot.

Today is the last day that you will be able to order any of the retired products from my online store.
