I’ve only had time to make 2 cards since I opened my box of items from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog. I’ve been working way too much & can’t wait until the weekend when I should have a little more time to play.
Don’t you love these new In Colors?!! This is Peekaboo Peach & Sweet Sugarplum. I had a piece of Cherry Cobbler on my desk & added that. Wasn’t sure if it would work, but I like it.
You’ll be seeing a lot of this pineapple! It’s from a new stamp set called Pop of Paradise. The new ribbon comes in all the new In Colors & is called Ruched Ribbon. I had to look up ruched & it means “gathering or pleating”. So now we know. It’s kind of crinkly.
The Designer Series Paper is called Playful Palette & had beautiful colors & patterns!
Mark your calendars for the May Card Classes!
Saturday, May 28 at 2pm or Tuesday, May 31 at 3pm.
We’ll make 4 different cards with envelopes to match for $10 (or FREE with your $20 order placed that day).
I’m home from a fun, fun week of wedding planning!! Jenny found the perfect dress!!! Found the bridesmaids dresses, my dress, had a fabulous Tea Bridal Shower for Jen. And spent the week with daughter #2, Malia, & Diana (Mother-in-Law to be). I’ll show you a few photos of the shower.
Everyone brought Jenny a recipe, so I have a perfect Project Life Idea!! Stay tuned…
Ok. Back to what I started with! I’m planning May’s club projects and so far this is what I’ve come up with.
This card starts by stamping leaves in Stazon Ink, masking off the center & sponging with Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, & Pear Pizzazz. Then I made a template using the window sheets that I punched circles in & sponged with Whisper White Craft Ink. It’s really fun to do & surprising how cool they turn out!
I’m off to Austin! This is my long-awaited trip to meet up with Jenny, my oldest daughter, who’s getting married in October. She’s invited me & her future mother-in-law to come to Austin to go wedding dress shopping! What fun!
Her future mother-in-law, Diana, works at a VW dealership, so I’m bringing her a special box of cards:
I’m so proud to be friends with Janna Hoehn, a woman from Wailea who is on a quest to find photos of every soldier who fell in Vietnam. So far she’s been featured in over 100 newspaper stories, and has found more than 1,400 photos of service members who lost their lives.
Last time I flew to Oahu, I was surprised to see an article about Janna in the Hawaiian Airlines Magazine, Hana Hou! Her dedication and perseverance is very inspiring to me!
So I made Janna a special card!
Here’s my patriotic Card in a Box for Janna. She received it yesterday & said it made her day!
My favorite fern has always been the Maidenhair Fern. I’ve always enjoyed hiking and see many of those in the mountains of Hawaii. Ginger is my other favorite!! That & Plumeria are the most wonderful smelling flowers!! Maybe Stampin’ Up! will create some ginger & plumeria stamps just for me!!
This beautiful fern is from Butterfly Basics (NOT retiring!).
