Soothing Summer Scenes with the Lilypad Lake Bundle

Hello Crafty Friends,

Summer is finally here so what better way to celebrate that than make cards that make us think of summer scenes.  There is a wonderful stamp set in the new catalog that is perfect for this very idea.

The Lilypad Lake bundle was used to make this card.  The bundle includes the Lilypad Lake stamp set and the Lakeside Framelits.  With the exception of the circle, all of the die cuts you see are part of the Framelits in this set.The soothing sand colored paper is part of the Tranquil Textures DSP that is also in the new catalog. I colored in the Heron, The lily pads and the sun with the Blends in Pool Party, Old Olive, Rich Razzlebery and Daffodil Delight. The twine I used is part of a new twine set called Nature’s Twine.  It comes with 4 colors: Crumb Cake, Grapefruit Grove, Blackberry Bliss and Mint Macaron.  The little embellishments on the sentiment are the new Faceted Dots.  This comes in a multi-pack with the following colors: Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron.

The are many other sentiments available in this set, but I wanted a card ready to go for those moments when a special thinking of you sentiment is needed.

I hope you enjoyed this card. Please check back again as I will try to share some more wonderful new catalog creations for  you soon!

The Stampin’ Up! New Catalog Is Here!!

Hooray!

It is new catalog day!  That’s right, today is the day you can order any of the new items you love in the new catalog.  If you don’t have one of these yet then please let me know. I can get one sent to you! In honor of the new catalog I have a pretty card to share with you that highlights one of my favorite new stamp sets.

This card was made using the Rooted In Nature stamp set and the Nature’s Roots Framelits.  It is a double stamp set and can be used for so many occasions. The colors used were the new Balmy Blue, the new Soft Sea Foam and the returning Mint Macaron.  Don’t these colors look simply divine together?  I added a little clear Wink of Stella on the leaves to give it some sparkle and I used the new Natures Twine in Mint Macaron to create an added focal point behind the leaves.  I finished things off by adding some of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the card.
