Happy Fressia Card

Do you like Stampin' Up!'s new Fresh Freesia colour? I love that they have a new purple! Or maybe you prefer one of the other new colours?

You could create this card using either the Pretty Perennials stamp set by itself and omit the flower die cuts or add even more die cuts! Tip for you: make sure to add some Adhesive Sheets to your next order if you have a Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine. It will make it easy to adhere the small cuts to your next project (click the image below and it will take you directly to the product in my store).

Thanks #SimpleStamping

An easy and simple way to create a card is to use only one stamp set, a few shades of ink and matching cardstock. As a beginner stamper or one who has many tools, creating a simple card can sometimes be a challenge. If you are starting out you might can be overwhelmed with all the choices. Or if you have a larger collection and been stamping for years it can be a hard choice what to create with first.
One idea to start being creative is to select the colours you will create with. This #SimpleStamping features a new In Color - Polished Pink. One of the great resources that Stampin' Up! provides demonstrators is the In Color combination chart. There are three suggested combos listed for each new In Color and it's a great way to help decide which colour to match with others. For this card I picked the combo of Polished Pink, Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate. Do you like these colours together? I'm undecided. Mostly because of the bright pink. I'm #TeamPurple 💜

Pretty Cards & Paper May

Hi there! Welcome to May's Pretty Cards & Paper Blog Hop. Our projects today are created with either the Pattern Party designer series paper or any of the packs that were available during the preorder. 
The Pattern Party designer series paper can be found on page 171 in the Annual Catalogue and is a hefty pack of paper with 48 sheets! This pack of designer series paper is not one you can order but can earn for FREE! 
I love this pack of DSP as one side is black and white making it perfect to accentuate the other designs or to colour in. Then the opposite side of each piece is a colourful pattern! Today's cards show off my favourite designs from this pack.
Did you notice the sentiments? They are from the Lighthearted Lines stamp set. The second one makes me think of my Grandmother and her advice: "don't ever get old" along with a line from Star Wars - Return of the Jedi "It's a trap!". The sentiments in this stamp set are quirky and fun. A great addition to your collection.
Interested in earning the Pattern Party designer series paper FREE and connecting with some friends to do some virtual crafting? Stampin' Up! is offering additional host rewards of $30 with qualifying orders. Connect with me to secure your spot on my calendar today.

Next up you can visit these other blogs to see what they are sharing with us today:

Global Stamping Friends - Brand New

Welcome to May's Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop and this month's theme is Brand New!
Since the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue started this past Tuesday it was perfect to design this scrapbook layout and use a NEW suite! The Hand-Penned Suite is a lovely subtle garden design with some of my favourite colours: Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight and Pool Party. Another reason to love this suite is the coordinating Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack. The two 3x4" cards used on this layout are from this pack.
Pictured above are the items you would receive when you order the Hand-Penned Suite, item #15503. One item for this suite makes it convenient for you to order.

Learn how to assemble this scrapbook layout below or you can watch it on my YouTube channel. If you head over to my YouTube channel make sure to hit subscribe!
