Lovely Inside and Out with Bundle of Love

I'm squeaking out a couple more posts with retiring product,
in anticipation of the new 2018-19 Stampin' Up! Catalog.
I adore the Bundle of Love Specialty DSP (p 189) because
of the abundance of metallics.  One side is baby colors,
the other beautiful patterns of gold!

The Lovely Inside and Out stamp set (p 157),
with coordinating Lovely Words Thinlits (p 214) are
gone June 1st.  If you have an interest in either product,
now is the time to snap them up!

Watts of Occasions Sneak Peak

This is kind of an old - new/sneak peak pairing.  
Watts of Occasions on page 63 is retiring and will
be sorely missed.  This is such a cute set, that works for
lots of situations.

For the sneak peak, I used two new colors; Poppy Parade
and Mango Melody. These are really great colors,
that are brilliant together!

Bird Banter Going in Circles

These Stitched Shapes circles were a great fit for the 
Bird Banter set (Occasions p 42).  I colored the birds
with Stampin' Blends and cut them out with the 
Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (annual p 214).  
The Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions
Embossing Folder (annual p 211) added a bit of texture
to the background layer, as did a bow made out of
Crushed Curry Baker's Twine.

Work of Art with Beautiful You

This card is follow-up after last Friday's Stamp Off
Challenge.  I've continue to experiment with
the swishes from Work of Art (annual p 151).  They really
lend themselves to great backgrounds as indicated
by several previous posts:

In this example, I stamped the swish with Crushed Curry and
Flirty Flamingo.  The sentiment comes from Beautiful You
(p 121).  If I had added gold embossed swishes, per the 
previous post, this card would look a bit more fancy.
