This is the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper. Each new In Color comes in 4 different patterns in 6″ x 6″ sheets. This paper will be available with the new catalog and it’s so nice to use with the In Color card stock. I always get one of these paper packs when the new catalog comes out, it adds so many possibilities!
Here’s a close up of the card that could be used for a guy card. It’s just a snap to put together. I’m happy to have this on hand to pull out when I need a “non-frilly” card! 🙂 🙂
Only 2 Weeks Left to Take Advantage of my Fabulous May Host Code Gift! It’s Really Good!

The Very Versailles stamp set is one of my favorites. And, I’m SO HAPPY that it’s being held over into the new Annual Catalog! I got so excited when I saw that it was staying another year, I just had to create a card!! 🙂
The front on this card has several layers: the first layer is a Crumb Cake card stock base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4.” The next layer is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla card stock that has been dry embossed with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder, and then lightly sponged with Rich Razzleberry ink using a sponge dauber. Adhere to the card base with Multipurpose Glue.
A 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla card stock was stamped on the lower right side with the large script stamp and Crumb Cake ink. Then the beautiful branch/leaf stamp was stamped on the lower left side in Pretty Peacock ink. The leaves may stamp over the script, but that’s ok. The top portion of this piece was then gently torn off close to but not further than the stamped area. This was adhered over the embossed piece, again with Multipurpose Glue.
The little “Thank You” sentiment was stamped on a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock using Pretty Peacock ink. It was cut out with the smallest little label die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered to the card using a Stampin’ Dimensional. This sentiment and the die are just so tiny and cute ~ I love them!!

Today I’m so grateful, thankful for many things. One of those things is that I am able to craft and use beautiful products to create cards that can bring a moment of joy to others 🙂 And this “So Grateful” card is a great card to send to friends during this time. I love the new Ornate Garden Suite and just can’t stop using it 🙂
I have two cards for you: one uses Granny Apple Green card stock and ink, and the other one uses the retiring Lovely Lipstick card stock and ink. Would you like to have a video tutorial that walks you through every step of making this card? Well, voila! You have one here today!!
Which color do you like best? The Granny Apple Green will be staying with us, but Lovely Lipstick is retiring on June 3rd and won’t be available after that date. It’s one of our 5 retiring In Colors.
Each item in the Ornate Garden Suite is wonderful, but I think the Ornate Layers Dies are the most versatile and probably the item I will use the most. I love lacy look of the frames!
Don’t miss out on the Retiring In Colors! Please order now, as they sell out even before the final retiring date. Click HERE to order!
The NEW Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper is so pretty, I can’t stop using it! On today’s cards I’ve just used a bit of it from my favorite pattern in the set, the large floral pattern.
There are four patterns in this set of papers, and three sheets of each pattern. The papers have silver and copper foils that create the patterns, and they are so pretty. The cross hatch pattern is all in copper foil and looks very nice as a background piece on a card. You can see the floral pattern that I used on the top of the set above. For today’s design I fussy cut the larger flowers and sponged them with Sponge Daubers.
Here is my Facebook Live from last Friday with a tutorial for making these cards. If you’d like to join my Facebook Lives, pop over to my Facebook page on Fridays at 4:00 PM PDT: https://www.facebook.com/PrettyPaperCards/
This card looks a bit different in each color. The one below was made with Blushing Bride card stock, Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper, and Whisper White card stock. The flower was sponged with Sponge Daubers using Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green ink.
The card below uses Pretty Peacock card stock for the sentiment, Purple Posy card stock for the embossed piece, Woven Threads Designer Series Paper for the background piece, and sponging with Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green ink.
And the third card uses Rich Razzleberry card stock for the sentiment, Purple Posy card stock, Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper for the background piece, and sponging with Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green ink. You can tell I had lots of fun with these cards!
5 NEW Fabulous FREE Sale-a-Bration Gifts Only available until March 31st
The Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper is just one of the five (5) NEW Sale-a-Bration items introduced for the month of March. To get a FREE item, place a minimum $50 order. To get the Tags in Bloom stamp set, you need to place a minimum $100 order:
Today’s card features the the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set which is currently FREE with a $50 order! This is what I call an “easy going” stamp set. It’s comfortable, nothing big and flashy, but sweet images and sentiments that comfortably fit any occasion.
For this card I started with a Whisper White card base. I added a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece from a card in the Kerchief Card Kit (a sold-out Sale-a-Bration item). I’ve been trying to use parts of other kits in my current cards. I stamped this piece with some of the stamps in this set. I used Night of Navy ink and Lovely Lipstick ink.
One of the sentiments from the set was stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock and cut out with a circle die from the Stitched Shapes Dies.
Just for fun I added a fun die cut from the Parisian Dies. It’s the swirly Night of Navy piece you see above tucked under the circle. It’s really a fun die ~ you can just add it in anywhere to any card, and it gives a little modern flair!!
The Thoughtful Blooms stamp set is FREE and the only way you can get it is by placing a $50 order. I mean, how often are you told that a great stamp set is FREE? You’ve just got to have it! 🙂 So, get out your wish list, place that order, and add the Thoughtful Blooms as your FREE GIFT! Easy!

Have you seen the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and dies? They are, well – lovely!
For this card I stamped three of the large lilies in Gorgeous Grape ink and colored them in with a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and a Dark Flirty Flamingo Blend. They were then cut out with the die.
A Whisper White panel was stamped with the leaf stamp in Granny Apple Green ink and the cut lilies were adhered above the leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
This stamp set and die set are both available FREE during Sale-a-Bration with your minimum orders. The stamp set (Item No.152288) is free with any $50 order, and the die set (Item No. 152315) is available with any $100 order. These are beautiful items and they are only available until March 31.
