I grew up on Oahu and had acres and acres of pineapples growing right behind my house in Waipio Valley. I remember chasing around those fields after school with my dog running beside me. And they’re easy to grow! Every time I buy a pineapple & just stick the top in the ground & it will produce a pineapple the next year!
Stampin’ Up! is retiring my Pineapples!! And the Mahalo!! I’m sure I won’t be getting rid of those…they come in handy here on Maui!
Stamps: Pineapple, Pop of Paradise, A World of Thanks (ALL RETIRING!)
Ink: Delightful Dijon & Pacific Point
Paper: Pacific Point (4 1/4 X 11, score at 5 1/2 & 1 1/4 X 5), Whisper White (5 1/4 X 4 & 1 X 1 3/4 & 1 X 2 7/8)

Look what I did with my stamp! Took a little courage, but I’m happy with the results!

This week’s Stampin’ Royalty Challenge is to create a project using flowers! What fun! Where do I start? Well, I wanted to use some of my brand new stamps, so I found a cute little flower from the Swirly Bird set.
I think my favorite thing about this card is the colors!! Sweet Sugarplum, Tip Top Taupe & Mint Macaron.

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).
