Hello Cardmaking friends,

Today’s card features a sneak peek at some new items coming to you on Jan 5!  The Annual Sale-a-bration is a once a year event where you get rewarded with free products with every $50 purchase.  This year Sale-a-bration starts Jan 5- Feb 28, 2021.  The new products I used in today’s card is the incredible True Love Designer Paper and the Happy Thoughts stamp set.  The only stamping on this card is the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set.  I love a stamp set that has stamps for many occasions and this set has stamps for both the inside and outside of your card, making card making so easy.  Make sure you read further to find my card measurements following the Shopping List.

The big bold floral image is actually one of the cluster of flowers in the True Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) I simply cut out and then colored with my Stampin’ Blends.  I love that the True Love DSP images are all in black and white so it allows the florals to be left as-is or color with your favorite coloring medium.

  • Choose a floral cluster of your choice from the DSP and cut it out and color it with Stampin’ Blends (alcohol markers), watercolor pencils, colored pencils or just leave them in black in white.  Adhere the floral cut out onto the Scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly die set. (I used Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the floral cluster to adhere.)

Just a couple of more days to begin a new year.  I’m sure I’m not alone in hoping for a better year ahead.  Thanks for joining me today and I hope you liked my little sneak peeks of upcoming products.  Oh, crafting confession – I used my ScanNCut machine to cut out all the floral clusters from 1 sheet, I did not fussy cut them out by hand but the images are large enough that it would be easy to cut them out by hand.

Have a Happy New Year friends!
