Sitting here at Starbucks sipping on my go to drink a Caramel Frappaccino with a shot of Hazelnut and no whip cream thinking about how each year Stampin’ Up! comes out with 5 new “In-Colors” each year I fall in love with at least one of them! Last year 2016-2018 was the year I fell in love with Sweet Sugarplum!! I love all the In-Colors but I always end up with 1 favorite per set. Sweet Sugarplum you have my heart! No but for real I just love this color!! I will be sad when it leaves next year!!
If you got the chance to read my post from yesterday you know that last week wasn’t the best but with some creative therapy using this goregous Petal Garden designer series paper made it so much better!
I picked out this beautiful sheet with roses that were Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum. The print was a little bold to take on a whole card front. So I decided to cut it down to 2″ by 5 1/2″. Then I added an Old Olive piece of card stock that was 2 1/2″ by 5 1/2″ behind the designer series paper. This helps bring out the Old Olive within the designer series paper and breaks up all that “purple” 😜 Well Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum that is!
I then used the new Whisper White classic weave ribbon. This ribbon is easy to work with. I love this technique of creating a bow. I cut off about 2 inches of the ribbon at a diagonal on both sides to keep it from fraying, plus it just looks nice. Then I take some ribbon still on the spoll and make a knot but not tighten it all the way yet. I’ll slide that cut off piece into the knot and then tighten. I use tear tape to adhere my ribbon to the back of the card stock.
I die cut a stitched edge oval out of Whisper White card stock and stamped “Full of Love for You” from a beautiful stamp set that gives back. Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set is a Ronald McDonald House Charity set that for every set sold Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
“The Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMDC) keeps families close to each other and surrounded by love when their children are receiving medical treatment far from home. You can help Stampin’ Up! support families through the RMHC and the Ronald McDonald House Program.” Check out page 233 in the back of Stampin’ Up!’s 2017-2018 Annual Catalog for more details.
I would like to give back to RMDC as well so for anyone that purchases the Petal Garden Share or the Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set or the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper, I will donate 15% of my commission. I will do this until the August 15th. Just use the Hostess Code: TF4NWQW when ordering the stamp set or designer series paper.
