Wow! Would you look at all that color? Something's happened because if you regularly read my blog, I don't use so much color. But spring has spring and there's color popping up all around. I saw the prettiest pink, yellow, and coral tulips the other day and I simply had to create something bright. (If you think these are bright, wait until you see the swaps I'm making for OnStage)!
Today's card is inspired by one made by Brian King. I love the simple design, but big bold sentiment from the Thank You Thinlits Die. And guess what? There's NO stamping! I haven't done a no-stamping card in a while and it was a lot of fun. Aside from running the die through the Big Shot, this card can be made in a flash!

I've had the Country Floral Embossing Folder for a few weeks, but haven't had a chance to play with it. This morning, I realized just how pretty it would be with Powder Pink, one of the retiring 2017-2019 In Colors. So soft and feminine... It's just gorgeous! A little bird told me the Country Floral Embossing Folder carrying over into the new annual catalog. But why pay for it when you can get it for free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration?!
You know...all week I've been telling you how important it is to get these retiring colors before the retirement list is announced, right? Here's why: The Powder Pink ink pad is already on back order! More are arriving in the warehouse next week. But once that retirement list is announced in April, everything will be on a while supplies last basis.

Have you heard the news? There are new Sale-a-Bration items! They were released just last week and I'm telling you, if I had to choose just 1 Sale-a-Bration item, the Painted Seasons Bundle would be it! At first, I was all about the paper well, because it's paper! But when I saw the stamp set in person, I had to try it on it's on. It is gorgeous! The images are "Distinktive " and extremely detailed, yet soft, like they've been watercolored. And they are super easy to combine to make their own backgrounds and designer series paper.
Starting March 1st, you may also purchase the coordinating Four Seasons Framelits ($28) so you can cut out all the images for additional layering.
The Painted Seasons Bundle is FREE with a $100 purchase, through March 31st, or while supplies last. Be sure to join me all week for more from the Painted Seasons Bundle.

Oh my gosh! I am in *love* with this card. But I can't tell...is it rustic or Shabby Chic? Is there a difference? How can you tell?
The Meant to Be Bundle is so versatile. It's much more than just a Valentine's Day set. Wouldn't this be perfect for a rustic barn or outdoor wedding?
Not only that, but when you buy the bundle, not only do you save 10%, but you also qualify for a Free Sale-a-Bration item (through March 31). I wonder which one you would pick?

We may be singing Deck the Halls, but these Spirited Snowmen are celebrating their love with the new Meant to Be Bundle. No matter what the season, love is what it's all about.
As I was designing my January Card Club last night with the new Meant to Be Bundle, I made an awesome discovery. The new Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, cut out a solid heart as well as the stitched scalloped frame at the same time! And then I wondered...will that snowman couple fit on the heart? And you know what? They do! I just love it when a plan comes together, don't you?
