Good Morning Magnolia with Magnolia Lane Suite

Because we are starting off a new Stampin' Up! catalog year,
there are many sets and bundles to choose from.  One of
my favorites is the Magnolia Lane Suite of products (p 37),
including the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and
Magnolia Memory Dies (p. 194).  This suite also includes
some delicious Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper,
which you will see in the future.

In this example, I colored the images with Calypso Coral,
Ivory and Old Olive Stampin' Blends.  The combination of
Calypso Coral and Ivory create a very nice Petal Pink shade,
to go with the card stock layers.  You can see this card
featured in my Blog Header.  It is difficult to see from this
post, but the image is coated with Wink of Stella, so that
it really glistens.  The Petal Pink background layer
was run through the Subtle 3D Embossing folder and
sponged with VersaMark Ink

Floating Tropical Chic

The new 2019-20 Stampin' Up! catalog is NOW LIVE!
I am really happy about a number of sets that have
made it into the new catalog.

Tropical Chic (page 93), with coordinating Tropical Dies
(page 197) is one of those combinations, which works
really well for floating cards.  Bright color palates make
for really happy cards!   I used a sentiment from the 
Butterfly Gala set on page 46.  I find these sentiments to
be perfect in terms of size, font and wording. 

This is the other portion of this card

Animal Outing

We are on the eve of the release of the 2019-20 Stampin' Up! catalog.  Animal Outing (page 102), is one of the sets 
that will carry over.  This is a great set because it is a
blast to color with Stampin' Blends, and has coordinating
Animal Friends dies for those of us who don't like to
fussy cut.  The balloons, created with retiring DSP,
 were punched with the
Balloon Bouquet punch (page 186).
