but what else can I say? Today I hit 1500 followers on my Facebook page. I am humbled and appreciative that so many people have found my page and feel that the information, demonstrations and projects I share are worth their time. Wow!
I shared this card two weeks ago to showcase the soon-to-be retired Happiness Abounds bundle. Since then, the stamp set has sold out – but hopefully the layout or color scheme will inspire you today.
The base for the card is Fresh Freesia – happy to say, you will find this color in the Subtles family in the new catalog! I have paired it with Gorgeous Grape – not a color I use very often, but I love how this one turned out. You can’t see it in this picture, but the Gorgeous Grape was die cut with the Stitched Greenery die – which is retiring and was on my Top 10 list. I love this die and am sad to see it go. If you don’t have it, grab it before it is gone!
The designer series paper is the Hues of Happiness which is gorgeous and makes stunning cards on its own – grab a pack – you won’t be disappointed. A piece of Fresh Freesia Ribbon is attached on the back side running over the edge of the DSP.
The layer behind the stamped image is also a piece of DSP from that pack. The flower and sentiment are stamped in Jet Black StazOn on Basic White card stock . The flower is colored with the Watercolor Pencils – Assortment 2.
A trio of Glossy Dots are used to finish off the card. I don’t often offset the mat behind my stamped images, but I do like how it looks here.
We are just 2 short weeks away from the launch of the new Annual Catalog – so make sure you grab any retiring products that haven’t sold out yet soon! Actually, Wed. April 19 would be a great day to do that as Stampin’ Up! is offering FREE SHIPPING on orders of $75 or more (US).
Thanks for stopping by!
