Card Swap Week part 4

Hello and welcome to today’s blog, featuring the first half of the card swaps I received back! I grouped these cards together and divided them into two days of Show and Tell! These are beautiful and awesome cards, I hope they inspire you!

This fist set is from the Graceful Suite (pages 164-165), using the Painted Glass stamp set, Stained Glass Thinlits Dies, and Graceful Glass 6” x 6” Designer Velum. These are great examples of how diverse the products from this suite are!


This second set features cards made from the Lilypad Lake bundle (page 133) and the Tranquil Textures Suite (pages 154-155). These are great examples of using the most of your products!


This third set features cards made from the Garden Impressions Suite (pages 128-130). Whether it’s the Abstract Impressions stamp set, the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies, or the Garden Impressions 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper, this suite makes such stunning cards!


This last set features the Nature’s Poem Suite (pages 142-144), I just love the copper embossing and the embossed leaves on the card on the right! Both of these cards are stunning!

Product List

New Annual Catalog Product Sneak Peak!

Hello and welcome to today’s show and tell with new products from the upcoming 2018-2019 Annual Catalog! Besides the cool swag from OnStage, I was able to make a special pre-order from the upcoming catalog and I really wanted to share this with you!


Of course one of the first items on my “must have” list are the new 2018-2020 InColor ink pads and paper. Pictures really do not do these colors justice, they are so bright and vibrant, and I am so excited to get the chance to share them with you! I am also happy to share the new ink pad design and really show you how they stack up! (lol!)


Aren’t these so cool?? They really do stack on top of each other nice and neat!



These are all the stamp sets that I came home with from OnStage! Everyone had “Animal Outing” in our registration bag, “Artisan Expressions” I won from Prize Patrol, “Pick a Pennant” was another Prize Patrol, and “Rooted in Nature” was from the “make and take” items at our table! While I am sad to see Vintage Leaves stamp set and the coordinating thinlit dies retire, Rooted in Nature is definitely going to become my new fall staple. Aside from Artisan Expressions, all these stamp sets have coordinating thinlit dies and I cannot wait to add those to the stamp sets!

Make and Take

One of the best perks about attending OnStage, is that you actually get to play with new products and take them home to share!

My first make and take is from the Nature’s Poem Suite, made with the Rooted in Nature stamp set, Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies, Nature’s Poem DSP, Nature’s Twine, Leaves Trinkets, and Nature’s Poem cardstock:


Next is from the Share What You Love Suite, made with the Love What You Do stamp set, Share What You Love Speciality DSP, Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon, Pearlized Doilies, and Share What You Love cardstock:



Next is from the Delightfully Detailed Suite, made with the Detailed with Love stamp set, Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, Delightfully Detailed Note Cards and Envelopes, Faceted Dots, and Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon:



Finally from the Graceful Glass Suite, made with the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum, Painted Glass stamp set, Black Cord, and Stampin’ Blends in Dark Pineapple Punch and Light Lovely Lipstick:



My choice for the special pre-order was a no-brainer, the Tranquil Textures Suite! I absolutely love that there are framelits to coordinate with this stamp set and they also emboss

! I can totally see incorporating this stamp set along with the Magical Mermaid stamp set!! Here are some product pictures:


So stay tuned this week as I will share my creations with the Tranquil Textures Suite!!
