Guest Designer – Phyl Lyons

Phyl's bird

Good friend and fabulous stamper Phyl Lyons created this card for me, and I just had to share! 

  • Colors are Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral and Whisper White.  Aren't you happy Pear is back?!
  • Background cardstock is run through the Big Shot with the Chevron Embossing Folder.
  • The Doily creates the perfect backdrop for the next two circle images.  The plaid comes from Kind & Cozy stamp set, and the pretty bird is from Simply Sketched which is a hostess-exclusive stamp set.
  • The sentiment is also from a hostess-exclusive stamp set called Express Yourself.  This is a fantastically versatile stamp set with 12 of the most popular greetings. 
  • Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon gives a pretty accent. 

Hope you enjoyed seeing Phyl's card.  If you'd love to own the two hostess-exclusive stamp sets, you can get them in one of three ways:

Thinking of you on Mother’s Day

Thinking Of You

With only a little over two weeks to go before the new Annual Catalog is released, I thought I'd give you a little sneak peek today of some new products being introduced!  Here is a portion of the Gingham Garden Suite, sure to be a favorite this year.  I made this card for my daughter and daughters-in-law for Mother's Day, but it would work for many occasions.

  • The new stamp set featured is Kind & Cozy – lots of country-feeling images including my favorite (which I didn't even use!) which is a cute little tea cup.
  • The Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper contains Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz (yes, it's back!) and Whisper White – so bright and cheerful!
  • You're going to FLIP when you see the new Candy Dots – a brad system that has every permanent color we carry in adhesive tops.  Use any color Candy Dot on a Brad Base for a framed colored brad, or just use the Dots on their own.  Here I've used an Island Indigo Dot from the Regals Pack.
  • White Baker's Twine looks good with this suite.
  • Daffodil Delight card stock and the Scallop Trim Border Punch pair to create a nice edge.

Thinking of you back

Don't forget a little envelope art.  Kind & Cozy has the perfect images for this!  There's even a "made with love" stamp I've used for the back of my card.

Thinking of you inside

And I decorated the inside with a Whisper White card stock liner and some more stamping.
