Pretty In Pink

I’m not a girly-girl. Never have been. I lived in jeans and t-shirts and played outside all day long when I was a kid (until the street lights came on, of course). I hated make-up, fingernail polish, dolls and anything pink…

Well, a few of those things have changed as I’ve gotten older, however, pink is still not a go-to color for me for much of anything. I surprised myself, however, when I sat down last weekend to design the cards for my upcoming card classes. I love the new Forever Greenery Suite; there are so many beautiful, coordinating elements. But when I pulled out all the materials to create a cool, green, summery card, things took a different turn. And, in fact, the card came together really, really fast. The sentiment “Love & Laughter Forever After” started it off and I just kept going. And guess what….it’s pink!

Along with pink, I used gold and vanilla with vellum paper as a pretty background. You know when you create a card and you’re pretty happy with the design, but other times, you create something you really love? Well that’s the case with this card. I think it turned out to be stunning. Now if I only had a wedding coming up! The recipe for the card is below – so please contact me (or click the link to my store on the right) to order the supplies for this card so you can work on your own stunning creations!

And if you need the new 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! catalog, let me know and I can pop one in the mail to you.

Stay healthy and safe and, as always, Happy Stamping!!

Anything New Swap #2


Here’s card #2 for the organized swap I participated in at the 2014 Stampin’ Up! convention. This card didn’t come together nearly as easily as the last swap I posted. It looks nothing like how I thought it would when I first started – other than the color scheme {{sigh}} that’s so frustrating. However, I am VERY happy with the outcome. I hope my fellow swappers felt the same!

I love the new Gold Soiree DSP (#133697) used on the card pictured – it’s from the new 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! catalog. (click link to view the catalog) I’ll be posting more samples using this DSP in the near future, so stay tuned!
