My family and I had a happy visit with my parents yesterday, to celebrate Mom and let her know how much we love her.
My sister Karla couldn’t be there as she is working out of state this week, but she sent Mom this beautiful vase of flowers!
Speaking of flowers, my mother loves them all, but just the other day she mentioned pink carnations as a favorite of hers. So, I made her a card with the Touches of Texture stamp set which includes this easy to stamp flower image as well as the smaller flower, bee, dragonfly and texture stamps. What a wonderful collection of images!
I “fussy cut” out the image of the bee after stamping it lightly with So Saffron ink, and I also used my Paper Snips to cut the banner ends on the sentiment strip.
While the Touches of Texture set is staying in the new catalog, I did use a few retiring products , such as the Silver Satin Ribbon and the sentiments, front and inside.
Front sentiment: “Crazy About You” stamp set. Inside: “First Sight” stamp set.
Both the Crazy About You and the First Sight stamp sets are on the retiring list, and like the beautiful silver satin ribbon, will only be available through May 31st!
Now, I have a secret to tell you about the colors on this card – the lighter pink cardstock that I used is a current color, Pink Pirouette, but the magenta color cardstock and ink and the green that I used on the leaves are both new 2017-2019 In Colors (Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist.) I love the new In Colors and I’m really looking forward to using them all over the next few weeks! (While you won’t be able to order anything in the new 2017-2019 In Colors just yet, they will be available to clients when the new catalog goes live on June 1st.)
Here are the products that I used on my mother’s Pink Carnation card:
There are just two weeks left to get some of these products before they are gone, and the Silver Satin Ribbon is on sale for 40% off! ($7.00 reg./$$4.20) The current Code for online orders is 3YZX3WJF.
