This year’s New Catalog is featuring a total Color Re-Vamp!

Yes, we are saying goodbye to many colors, we are saying Hello to many

New colors, and we are saying Welcome Back to some returning colors!

New Color Collections

Change is Good.

Stampin’ Up! has always been on Trend for their Color Collections!

I remember 10 years ago when I started Stampin’ Up! and became a Demonstrator.

They had a Color Re-Vamp then, and I was so surprised! But, I was also very

pleased with the color change then…so as not to grow weary of the samo-samo…change

is good to get the creative juices flowing! I hope, like me, that you ALL can embrace the

New Color Collections! I was at first sad to see a couple of colors go, but then I see what

is New and the Colors returning, and was back to doing a ‘happy dance’!

Let me know which Colors you are Happy to see!

They can be returning or brand new!

Let me know in your comments! It will be nice what is your Fav Color!

What is(are) your favorite New Color(s)?

 

Until the Next Post…Rainbow Blessings to you ALL!

 

 

On a side note…on Mother’s Day, my Father passed away. I had many of these past posts done before Dad passed away. This one too, this is my edit to this post.

I will be away for several days…I will be traveling up to RI for Dad’s service. I will post again after I get back from this trip. All, I ask is your patience and remembrance while I am away.

There are 7 of us ‘kids’ and our spouses, children, grand-children, and great grand-children, along with cousins and Aunts and Uncles too. Dad lived a good life. There were many off-spring to keep him busy. Dad had a prayer list, the whole family was on that list. He prayed for each and everyone, every day! Going to miss someone praying for me!

When Mom passed away 4 years ago…Dad really missed her, as we expected…but his faith in God is what got him through, as well as all of us too. We know Dad is in heaven, he took all our hugs to Mom, on Mother’s Day…that’s what comforts us. We know where he is and know that one day, we too, will see them again. That is the legacy of Dad. Both Dad and Mom instilled in us the ‘Blessed Assurance’. Most of us, believe that, some are still pondering, but we still pray that we will all be together again.

So all I ask is prayers for comfort for us all, and prayers for those others, to commit their hearts to the Lord. Thank you and I will see you again, on my next Post.

Petal Passion Suite Series Card #8

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for looking in during my

Petal Passion and Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack Series!

Today’s Card is the last in the Series.

I decided to try a different technique with this Card!

I sponged the different colors of ink over the printed DSP!

I then took the Blender Pen and colored over the stamped inks.

The results were so different!

 

Here’s my Card!

100_4755

I used the Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads: Berry Burst, Calypso Coral, Old Olive,

Daffodil Delight, and Blushing Bride, and sponged the Petal Passion DSP, and the

Petal Passion Memories and More Card! I stamped the greeting, from the

Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, in Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Ink, onto

a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the

Bunch of Banners Framelits, using the Big Shot die cutting machine!

The Petal Passion DSP is cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. I saved the 3/4″ x 4″ piece for

the inside of the Card!

 

Here is the inside!

100_4756

I actually colored in the piece for a deeper, richer look!

I used Stampin’ Blends in Light Rich Razzleberry,

Light Old Olive, and Light Bermuda Bay.

I purposely left the inside blank. The Whisper White panel

measures 4″ x 5 1/4″.

 

Here is the Card again!

100_4755

 

I hope you enjoyed this Petal Passion Suite Series.

Although the Petal Passion DSP and the Petal Passion

Memories & More Card Packs will be discontinued after May 31st,

This great stamp set will be carried over into the New 2018 Catalog that

debuts June 1st! So exciting!

Until the Next Post…Blessings and Best Wishes to you ALL!
