Everything is Rosy

For today’s card I used the new Everything is Rosy Product Medley from Stampin’ Up!. The paper included with the kit is just stunning with the rose copper foiling. I ran a piece of the copper foil through my big shot with the subtle embossing folder for the background. I cut two pieces of the night of navy ribbon included in the kit and adhered them to a 2 1/2 inch strip of one of the included papers. I stamped two flowers in night of navy and then die cut them with one of the included dies. I then added 2 of the little cooper dots from the kit. I stamped the sentiment in night of navy on one of the labels included as well.

I am entering this card in the freshly made sketches challenge #388. Here is the link to their challenge page:

Magnolia Lane

For today’s card I used the upcoming Stampin’ Up Suite Magnolia Lane. This bundle has a stamp set, die, DSP, ribbon, embossing folder and more. It will be available to purchase starting June 4th. I used some vellum from the new Perennial Essence as a base and the inside sentiment was from Picture Perfect Birthday, everything else is part of the Magnolia Lane suite.

Thanks for stopping by.
