Magnolia Lane on Rococo Rose

It's Stamp Off Challenge day, and Susan, Buffy and I
are sharing our favorite new In Colors!

The choice of favorite In Color was a no-brainer
for me.  I'm kind of a Pink/Rose girl, so I love
Rococo Rose.  It's not too light pink and goes with a
nice selection of SU colors.  In this example, I paired
Rococo Rose with Mossy Meadow.

Products used on this card include:
Magnolia Lane set on page 38
Magnolia Memory Dies on page 194
Stitched Lace Die on page 196  

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  Now please click
on over to check out projects by Buffy and Susan.

Royal Peacock with Butterfly Gala Sentiment

It's always interesting to "get to know" new Stampin' Up!
product.  Playing with product is different from checking
it out in the catalog.  Admittedly, I have gotten better at
figuring out what product I will really enjoy.

For this card, I used the Royal Peacock Bundle, including
the Royal Peacock Stamp set and Detailed Peacock dies 
(page 5, 25, and 192).   I added the coordinating 
Noble Peacock Foil Sheets (p 167) and Brick and Mortar
3D Embossing folder, found on page 198.   The sentiment 
from Butterfly Gala (p 47) was cut out with the
Stitched Shapes Dies on page 196.

I picked up the Royal Peacock bundle because it is so
different, with elements that are great together, or can
be used separately for different looks.

Geared Up Garage Celebration

I love masculine sets, especially those that are car
related, since many in my family are car nuts. 
Geared up Garage (page 154), paired with the Garage Gears
Dies (page 193) enables quick creation of celebratory cards.
I like repeat stamping sentiments, to create a background
with variations in color.  I ran the balmy blue layer through
the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to add more texture.
