Here is a sneak peek of the NEW bundle coming out June 1st in the Annual Catalog.
I used the new stamp set Lilypad Lake and its coordinating Lakeside framelits to create this simple card.
Both blues used on this card are new as well- the lighter blue is Balmy Blue and the darker one is Blueberry Bushel.
Balmy Blue is kind of a brighter mix of our retiring Marina Mist and Soft Sky.
The Balmy Blue panel with the waves die cut measures 3-3/4″ x 5″.
I bordered it with the new IN COLOR Blueberry Bushel cut to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.
I stamped some Blueberry Bushel waves to the inside with a sentiment of calmness.
The sun is a 1/2″ circle of So Saffron cardstock set behind the awesome die cuts from the Lakeside Framelits.
I love having new dies to cut out sentiments, don’t you?
This new set has great little sailboats in it, too- it’s going to be a winner!
Don’t forget about my May Online Order gift: a FREE DSP Sampler with (6) 4″ x 6″sheets of the beautiful Share What You Love Designer Series Paper to any $40 ONLINE order* made in May! It will mail June 1-4! Please use the Current Hostess Code at the top of my blog header.

I was so taken with this sweet stamp set in the Annual Catalog but never got around
to using it for Valentine’s Day. So better late than never…

Don’t be fooled that this set is only for Valentine’s Day…look at the sentiments for get well and encouragement, too.

I made a quick card with the cutest stamp set, SU Message in a Bottle.
I had it on my desk as I was using it for another project and
thought the colors would go with The Paper Players # Challenge #388.
Just simple and quick… and remember Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant are retiring…
get refills and cardstock if you need them!
I used the water ripples from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set:)
Well, this simple and quick card would have been quicker if I had not literally put inky paws three times on the card as I was finishing it off- and in places where I could not creatively embellish, ever have one of those days?
Check out how super cute the images and sentiments are in this stamp set:
May I say that the NEW Sale-a-bration Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper is GORGEOUS!!!!
I MEAN ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!!
And it is fun to emboss resist, too!
Look how beautiful the silver and gold shine through after I sponged Memento Black ink over it!!
My friend, Linda Heller, brought this old technique of emboss resist using this paper to my attention last week:)
It is easy to see how I made this card…I just die cut the larger gold cross and adhered the thinner silver cross to it.
I added a Clear Faceted Gem to the middle of the silver cross and added a banner embossed in gold. Simple yet elegant!
