Welcoming the New and Cherishing the Old: Through It Together and Prized Peony

My new products are the Through It Together stamp set,  You're a Peach Designer Series Paper, Baker's Twine Essentials Pack, and the (Checks & ) Dots Embossing Folders.  I used Polished Pink ink and card stock, and Soft Succulent ink on my peony.  The returning products I focused on are the Prized Peony stamp set and the coordinating Peony dies.   Coloring my Prized Peony To color my focal point, I picked up Polished Pink ink from an acrylic block using a Wink of Stella glimmer brush.  The leaves and stem were colored with Soft Succulent and Cinnamon Cider inks using a Water Painter. Cutting the Through It Together Sentiments I cut the angles of the sentiments using a washi tape guide on my paper trimmer to ensure that all the angles were identical. Now, let's see what Kelly created for us!

Bags made from Designer Series Paper

 I made this bag during my Facebook Live on Monday, June 28, 2021.  The video is also available on YouTube if you're interested.  Stampin' Up!'s co-founder, Shelli Gardner posted a video on her blog,, on October 18, 2020 sharing this fold using Designer Series Paper (DSP) that was 12" X 12".  I played around and have many other options for you, depending on the size you want your final bag to be. (NOTE:  PLEASE let me know if you find any errors in my measurements!  I checked and double checked my numbers, but I do make mistakes.  Thanks!  Sue)

Masculine Birthday Card--using Geared Up Garage

I worked with a sketch to make this card for our nephew,  I usually don't use ribbon on masculine cards, but the matt black dots were a great finishing touch. I liked the simple font of the 'Happy Birthday' stamp from the Artistically Inked stamp set.  Geared Up Garage has retired, but we don't currently have a car stamp.  I need to suggest that to Stampin' Up!  If you ever have suggestions for Stampin' Up!, let me know;  there is a way for me to make suggestions to the home office.

Happy Birthday with Peaches

 I enjoyed stamping the background of my card using the Artistically Inked stamp set.  The Happy Birthday stamp is from that same set. To create the peaches, I inked the stamp with the 3 peaches with Pale Papaya ink then sponged Flirty Flamingo ink on the stamp before stamping them on the Basic White card stock.  Don't they look good enough to eat?!
