A Jar of Flowers for the June Color Combo Blog Hop

Today's share is part of a Color Combo Blog hop. Our combination this month is
Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam.

This combination of beautiful soft colors reminded me of spring flowers - like the daffodil posy in the new Jar of Flowers Stamp set from Stampin'Up!

Stampin'Up!'s Jar of Flowers Stamp Set
The stamp set is part of a bundle and there are several reasons to love this bundle.
  1. First it has a matching punch. And yes, a jar is easy to cut with a scissors so you might be asking why get the punch.  The answer is because there are also coordinating plastic domes that fit the shape so you can make shaker cards.
  2. I like that there are two sizes of the jar
  3. AND - the jar stamps are REVERSIBLE so you can stamp water in the vase. How cool is that?
  4. And you get 4 different flower sprays to choose from
  5. Plus, its a bundle - which means you save 10% when you buy the stamp set and punch together.

Look at all the variation in colors of the flowers.

I used Stampin'Up!'s alcohol markers to color them. These markers come in a set of 2 - a light and a dark for each color. This is what allowed me to get so much color variation in this flower spray.
The speckles you see in the photo are the light reflecting off of the glitter from the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

The other thing you can do with these Blends is to color the rhinestones. Look how pretty these pink rhinestones are against the black background of the label.

So who wants a box of sunshine?  I can't wait for the June paper pumpkin kit, it's made for us to create projects to be shared with others during this difficult time. The sunshine theme is very summery and fresh. And really, aren't we all just so ready for some warm weather and time in the sun. Just looking at this box makes me feel good.

This kit was inspired by Stampin’ Up!’s CEO Sara Douglass, as a way to help you share sunshine!  It even has leftover pieces for you to decorate the box, so you can fill it with yellow goodies and use it as a gift box! Clever!

Botanical Prints Product Medley on Sale

In this post I'm going to explain  the value of a product medley because Stampin'UP! has a medley on sale right now. Originally sold at $70 marked down now to only $42!

A whole medley for the price of a bundle.  That's an amazing value.

Are you like me? Have you ever felt stuck trying to choose the right paper or ribbon for a project?  I've definitely been in that position.  Some times I pull out a set I want to play with and then obsess over which paper or ribbon to use.  Gotta find a coordinating ribbon and what's the chance I have cute matching bling?
Here's an example of what I'm talking about
from the 2020 January to June Catalog:
check out this fun stamp set
featuring these natural looking
botanical prints of fruits.

I've always loved natural looking images
of flowers and animals . . . 
especially ones that work well for coloring.

The downside is that these types of images
 can be very specific
and hard to find a good matching paper.    

Enter the solution:  
a Product Medley!

There are 3 things worth mentioning that make the Botanical Prints Medley special
  1. The bling:
    it  has some really cute bee trinkets.  I'd never have that perfect of an embellishment just sitting around.  Glad it comes in the medley
  2. The paper
    wow, colored on one side and black and white - perfect for coloring - on the back. Plus the laser cut paper.  OMG!
  3. The punch-outs
    this kit has lots of ways to dress up a  project with pre-printed punch outs of flowers and blank labels for sentiments.
Here's a 3 min video showcasing the Medley.

The Botanical Prints Product Medley is on sale now because the medley is being retired with the catalog. Click here to order yours before they're all gone.  

The whole medley is now priced at less than the cost of the average bundle! Its a super value and at this price I'm guessing they won't last long.

Glimmer Daisy Card Kit

Easy card layouts with designer paper featuring Stampin'UP!'s retiring Leaf Punch, Starburst Punch and Sparkle Glimmer Paper

These cards are full of vibrant color, high contrast and sparkle.
Unfortunately they're also full of retiring product.

I used up some retiring product to make up these kits - 1 card of each of these three designs. 
If you'd like to purchase them click the PayPal button below.

Kits include a white card base with envelope, the rhinestones and the cut and punched pieces
ready for you to add your favorite sentiment.
demonstrators are not allowed to sell stamped images in kits.

If you attended classes with me at any of the Senior centers
You were making 3 designs (2 of each) for $10
This kit is 3 designs and one of each card
because I have to cover postage and PayPal fees.

Three card bases with envelopes
and all the cut parts and rhinestones 
to make these 3 gorgeous cards
for only $10

 There are only 10 so if you want one, order it now.
Any not sold by Friday the 15th will get sent to my grandkids.

Remember demonstrators can not sell kit parts with stamped images.

or add your favorite sentiment stamp.
