The 2014-2016 In-Colors are leaving soon and currently are orderable while supplies last. So if you want them, you'll want to order before Stampin' Up! runs out.
I know I am going to miss these two 2014-2016 In-Colors the most: Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss. I paired them with Stampin' Up!'s Market Fresh stamp set for today's card.
I did this card last fall and it was a case of a card that I saw on the Hawaii Incentive trip.
Have you checked out Thankful Forest Friends stamp set on page 43 of Stampin' Up!'s new Holiday Catalog? There are so many possibilities for this set. You could make a baby card, children's and masculine birthday cards, fall cards, etc. Below is a card I made using the set when I first played with it.

I used Stampin' Up!'s English Garden Designer Series Paper and the tear and flip method to create the background. Simply take a piece of Designer Series Paper and tear it across about 2/3's of the way down and simply flip the bottom 1/3 piece over and glue to Crumb Cake cardstock base. Stamp and punch your sentiment and layer on another punched piece of cardstock and adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Tie a ribbon around front of card and you are done.
Now in case you are wondering how I tied the ribbon to the front without tying the card closed, look closely at the left hand side. I used the flower punch from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to create a small slot in the folded side of the card to thread my ribbon through to the front side. If you look at the Itty Bitty flower punch, you will see one of the petal ends is pretty square and that is the one I used to create the slot.
Below are some of the cards made with friends last month using this technique and Carol showed us how to make flowers using Stampin; Up!'s new cotton paper:
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Does anyone remember the song Butterfly Kisses? Well, when I created my butterfly wishes card for my May clubs, the first thing that came to mind, was the song Butterfly Kisses. It also reminds me of spring, something I definitely want to see after our long, cold, snowy New England winter!!!
Happy spring everyone.
