Expressions In Ink Best Wishes

My heart goes out to all of the couples who have tried to get married in the last 18 months, having to postpone, postpone, replan, and postpone, their weddings.  I hope they are comforted by knowing how much more special that day will be when it finally comes!  And what better way to help them celebrate then a one-of-a-kind card?!

I don't usually gravitate to abstract images but I couldn't resist the beautiful ink spots and splatters in the Expressions In Ink Suite.  And the gorgeous detailed dies sealed the deal!

Making A Difference (TIGF Challenge)

I'm playing along with the TGIF Challenge (#TGIFC315) again this week, and it's a colour challenge!  I just received my new catalogue products this past weekend so it was a great chance to mix the old and the new for something super fun!

Ombre Watercolour Sympathy (TGIF Challenge)

The TGIF weekly challenge #TGIFC314 was to case the Designer with an Oh My Ombre theme this week.  I decided to have one more go-round with the black and white True Love Designer Series Paper and watercolouring.

Art Gallery Birthday

As I impatiently wait for the new catalogue to launch on Tuesday (!!!) I am playing with some carry-over products today.  This flower bunch from the Art Gallery stamp set is one of my favourites, especially when die cut with the coordinating dies.

Vintage Etched In Nature (TGIF Challenge)

This week's challenge at TGIF (#tgifc312) was to create a vintage-inspired card...this style is not usually in my wheelhouse but I really need a creative escape yesterday, so I decided to give it a whirl!  And I am very happy with how my card turned out.

True Love (Blog Hop)

This month we are saying goodbye to so many amazing retiring products, including some of my favourites.  :(  I'm excited about all the new offerings that will be available next month, but am having one last round with each before these items retire forever.  So our blog hop theme this month, retiring products, worked perfectly into my plans!

The True Love DSP is a classic--beautiful florals in black and white, customizable to every project or amazing left as is.   For my card I chose a bit of both, keeping some of the paper uncoloured, and creating a raised coloured central focal point too.

Pierced Blooms Celebration

It's #wowWednesday time again, and I am super excited to showcase this fun pull out card I made with the Fine Art Floral DSP and Pierced Blooms dies.  They aren't part of the same suite of products, but like so many of Stampin' Up! products, I think they coordinate together beautifully.
