Isn't this lovely? Paper Pumpkin is getting better and better! The April 2019 - Sentimental Rose - kit is absolutely stunning. I love the big Distinktive rose stamp. This kit was perfect for beginning stampers. The Distinktive Stamp makes it look complicated with all the layers and shading, but in reality, it's just one single stamp! Amazing, isn't it?
And don't forget about the new Hugs from Shelli kit available in May. Sign up by May 10th to receive this lovely vintage-y feel Paper Pumpkin. For only $19.95, plus Free Shipping, you'll be so glad you did!
What do you do with the stamps after you've made your kit? Save them and keep crafting! This stamp set one I know I'll use again and again.
I woke up this morning ready to craft with you Live with the April 2019 - Sentimental Rose - kit , but I had some technical difficulties. So, I'll be back at 7:30 pm tonight to make these pretty cards with you. In the meantime, I just learned that the Sentimental Rose REFILL Kit is now available. Refill kits are available for current subscribers only. If you need one, let me know.
In the meantime, here's the video from Stampin' Up! Be sure to grab your kit and come craft with me at 7:30 tonight! See you then!
Layers, layers everywhere. This card has so many layers it's hard to know where to begin. The Petal Palette stamp set is one of my all time favorites. And I don't even like birds! I think it's the way the layers work together without being fussy. You don't have to cut a lot of any one piece, either. As you e. And what are those circles in the background? Surprise! The Swirly Scribbles dies make a guess appearance here, too.
Powder Pink is retiring...in fact, ALL 2017-2019 InColors are retiring. When? On Monday, April 15th. If I were you, I'd stock up on all InColor inks, re-inkers, paper, ribbon, etc before Monday. Historically, all InColors sell out almost immediately. And once they're gone, they're gone.

Nothing says WOW! Wednesday better than a little bling. And if you're like me, you hoard every scrap of foil and glimmer paper, breaking it for only your best cards. This great big gear die in the Garage Gears Thinlets make a big impact. And don't you love how the oil stained (or is it antiqued?) look of the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper? Looks like all the Lad's work pants if you ask me!

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.

I made this card using the Humming Along Stamp Set and Blends Markers for one of the most important people in my life. I can't tell you who it is, because I've yet to give it to her. But, it was a true labor of love since every square inch of the card has been colored by hand. It's true! The flowers and leaves were stamped on a Whisper White Notecard in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then painstakingly colored by hand - even the background! There's a saying you know when a paper crafter loves you because they use their best paper. Well, sometimes you know they love you because of the time and effort it took to craft something beautiful.
Did you hear the news? The Sale-a-Bration Organza Ribbon Combo Pack is back in stock! The only thing is, I don't know for how long. It's still free with a $50 purchase, but I'd grab a pack now, before it's gone for good!
Base: Whisper White Note Card, 5" x 3 1/2"
Layer 1: Basic Black, 3/4" x 2 1/2"
