RemARKably Creative - Something New!

I'm excited to be participating in the RemARKably Creative Blog Tour this month - a first for me. Ever. I've never joined a blog hop before, but have admired the talents of many bloggers and hoppers, and I've always wanted to... so I thought I would give it a try.

Everything's coming up... no, not roses... Daisies! I'm in love with the new Delightful Daisy Suite (available June 1) and how versatile it is. It's funny... when I sit down to create a card I have a certain vision, but as I start playing with different colors and elements, I tend to go in a different direction.

The colors in the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper are Daffodil Delight and Old Olive, but I tried a couple of different yellows and greens to bring out the different hues of the paper. I settled on Always Artichoke as a nice complement to the Old Olive, but found the Daffodil Delight complements itself.

As soon as I finally decided on my colors, everything else just sort of fell into place. And this is what the finished card looks like!

The center of the daisy doesn't show up very well in the above picture, so I had to include a close-up!

Fun, isn't it? Nothing a little Wink of Stella and Fine Tip Glue Pen can't make prettier!

Before you hop on to the next blog, I'd love it if you would please take a moment to leave me a comment.

Thank you!

A Sneak Peek from the New Catalog!

This is an exciting time of year in the Stampin' Up! world! There are about three weeks left before the new annual catalog comes out, and there are some AMAZING things in that catalog! As a taste of what's to come, Stampin' Up! has a new bundle available before the June 1 launch! Check out the Eastern Palace Suite bundles!

Although I purchased the Premier bundle, I decided to make a few cards using the starter bundle! Check out these quick and easy cards...

I love how quick and easy these cards are - the Very Vanilla notecards make it super simple! But beware... the Eastern Beauty stamp set is highly addictive... there are so many pieces that you will no doubt find fun ways to use them!

If you order either of these bundles, I will give you a free one-on-one class! If you're not local, I will send you a PDF for the instructions on how to make not only these cards, but ones made with the premier bundle as well (pictures to be posted soon)! Visit my online store to get bundle details or place an order today.
