A year-round inhabitant of marshes and wetlands, the Heron in the Stampin' Up! Heron Habitat Stamp Set paired perfectly with the botanical and floral designs in this print from the Hello, Irresistible Designer Series Paper from the Online Exclusives products.  I used a color theme of Soft Succulent, and Pretty Peacock along with a print from the Hello, Irresistible Designer Series Paper pack.  Pretty Peacock will be one of the returning colors during the May Color Update, and I was fortunate to find some of the cardstock and the Pretty Peacock ink pad among my craft stash.  I stamped the Heron from Heron Habitat Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink and fussy cut it to use on this greeting card.  I also used the small bird stamp from this stamp set to add birds in flight to the top of the Designer Series Paper.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the Heron Habitat Stamp Set onto a vellum die cut label in Pretty Peacock ink, as I wanted the Designer Series Paper to show through.  To add a little bling to my card, I added a few of the Pretty Peacock Loose Frosted Dots, another item from the Online Exclusive section of the Stampin' Up! online store.  This is lovely card to send someone to let them know you're thinking of them

The basecard for today's card is Soft Succulent Cardstock.  Then a layer of Pretty Peacock Cardstock.  Finally, a botanical print from the print from the Hello, Irresistible 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper Pack.

Next, I stamped one of the Herons from the Heron Habitat Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink onto Basic White Cardstock and fussy cut it.  I mounted it on Dimensionals before adding it to my card.  I also used the small birds-in-flight stamp to add birds to the top of the Designer Series Paper.

To finish my card, I  added a vellum sentiment label die cut using one of the Something Fancy Dies.  I stamped in Pretty Peacock ink one of the sentiments from the Heron Habitat Stamp Set.  Then I added a few of the Pretty Peacock Loose Frosted Dots to the card.

New Catalog Pricing Changes; and Get ready for Fresh New Colors 

While Stampin' Up strives to provide you with the best paper crafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality of Stampin' Up! is know for, all while being mindful of cost and other important consideration, we are all aware of the increases in costs we're seeing in today's market place. This is a heads up that price increase will impact several product categories in the upcoming new catalog.  

You'll want to consider stocking up on items such as Cardstock, Specialty Paper, Notecards and Envelopes, Ink Pads and Refills, Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Write Markers, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machines and plates, Take Your Pick products, Storage, Clear Blocks, Select adhesives, and Paper Pumpkin.  Consider purchasing a Paper Pumpkin subscription (a prepaid code) before the 2 May 2023 price change to receive current pricing on your subscription.  Order Paper Pumpkin subscriptions here:  https://www.paperpumpkin.com/en-us/sign-up/?demoid=100492

Its that time of the year when Stampin' Up! refreshes the color line adding several new colors to keep the product line fresh.  Additionally, the 2021-2023 In Colors -- Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, and Pale Papaya -- will retire unless one or more are kept as part of the color refresh.  Demonstrators will hear about the refreshed color collection on 29 March.  That means customers will hear the details shortly thereafter.

Retiring 2021-2023 In Colors;
Order before they sell out

As soon as new colors are announced and we say goodbye to others, we often see several retiring colors sell out.  Since these products will not be restocked, now is the time to check your stock of cardstock, ink pads and refills, Blends and Markers and Designer Series Paper.  Place your order for the items you plan to continue using.
