  • Final weeks to Shop the Last Chance sale for January-June Mini Catalog items

Another of of my favorite carry over sets from the previous catalog to the current annual Stampin Up! catalog is the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set and the coordinating Penned Flowers Dies.  I had a large amount of the coordinating Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper that I wanted to use up, so I stamped one of these cards.  Don't have this paper?  No problem.  You'll find several florals in the new Design A Daydream 12" X 12" Paper Pack from the annual catalog, that will breath fresh life into this favorite stamp set.  The basecard for today's card is Pale Papaya Cardstock, and then layers of Whisper White or the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.  The Hand-Penned Petals Stamp set includes several nice sentiment, and I also used sentiment from the Go To Greeting Stamp Set.  I used a variety of Blends to color the stamped flower from the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set.  You'll love sending beautiful floral cards using this set.  Add it to your Shopping List today!

Today's card uses a base card of Pale Papaya Cardstock.  Then layers of Basic White along with accents using the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.  The floral image is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, die cut using thee coordinating Penned Flowers Dies, and cored with Blends Markers.   I love that you can color this floral image to match whichever Designer Series Paper you're using.

The bling is from the Genial Gems (retired) package, a coordinating product hen the Hand-Penned Suite was initially use, which I also wanted to finish using.  If you have several sheets of the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper remaining, this is a great design for showcasing the paper and the current Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set.  However, you'll find several new floral prints or geometric patterns that will work beautifully with this stamp set.

Today I wanted to highlight another fun kit:  Light The Candles Card Kit

This kit includes 8 cards and envelopes with matching liners.  There are two designs with die cuts to decorate your card fronts.  This is a fun, easy kit for any level stamper, and a great kit to take along while travelling.   This kit works when you need cards for males or females which is a big plus in my book.  You'll love the comments you get from friends or family who receive one of these bright, cheerful cards.
