Pre-Order is in! With Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle from the new 2020 - 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog

Hi Friends!  I finally had just a little time to play with some of my new Pre-Order Goodies!

Since I didn't have the new In Colors Inks yet (they weren't in the warehouse in time for pre-order!), I decided to use Mango Melody and Pretty Peacock on this one and loved the combination.  It was certainly a color combination I would never have thought of. 

Here's what I came up with for a pretty quick card.

I don't really have any idea what made me pair Pretty Peacock with Mango Melody but I really love it!  Do you know what else I LOVE ?? .... it's the gorgeous Old World Paper 3D Embossing folder!!!  Such texture that folder gives to the background!  I know this will be a favorite and get a LOT of use!   For the sunflower, here's what I did that I would not do next time.  I stamped the Sunflower with Mango Melody Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  That was silly because then I had to color it in with my Blends.  The next time I will definitely stamp onto colored cardstock and save the step of coloring.  I did the same with the leaves... so I'll know better next time!  I love the look of adding the adhesive towards the center of the flower and leaving the die cut petals pulled out from the flower.. it really gives it such a pretty look!  This is just the first of many cards.. I'll learn as I go!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
