Painted Petals

How gorgeous is this stamp set, Painted Petals? I went traditional with my first card, finishing it off with some Perfect Plum Candy Dots.

The Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim on page 13 of the Occasions Catalog was staring at me from my desk top so just HAD to work it into the next card!

Then, as I haven’t done anything with rainbow colors for the longest time this stamp set seemed more than up for it!

Lotus Blossom (SAB)

Of all the stamp sets in this year’s Sale-a-Bration Catalog, this set is the most popular by far. And why not? The Lotus Blossom Stamp Set is not only beautiful but just so versatile.

The first I used with the Calypso Coral colors to challenge myself by stepping right out of my comfort zone, teaming it with the Bow Builder Punch found on page 13 of the Occasions Catalog.

Having challenged myself I then rewarded myself by using my pinks – Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette. Finishing it with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and a Something Borrowed Embellishment on page 42 then framing it all with Old Olive Cardstock.

Isn’t it the Lotus Blossom a beautiful stamp set and so worth spending $60 – think embellishments, ribbons and glitter – to earn it as a free product during Sale-a-Bration 2015.

Artisan Embellishment Kit

As I said last week, I’m ADORING this Artisan Embellishment Kit that is available on page 27 of the Occasions Catalog. I find it REALLY hard not team it up with the Butterfly Thinlets!

Artisan Embellishments - Hardwood - JIF

What I found interesting was the Rosette Trim available in this kit. When I first looked at it, to me it seemed more apricot in color hence teamed in with the Calypso Coral Cardstock (although this photo makes it look almost orange!), sorry.

Artisan Embellishments - White Bark - JIF

Then when I was looking up the kit in the catalog to order another one, I noticed that they called it Blushing Bride Rosette Trim so… teamed it with Blushing Bride Cardstock instead!

Doesn’t the Rosette Trim look completely different when teamed with the two different colors, incredible isn’t?
