Simply Succulents and a new Online Class!

Happy Tuesday! Can you believe we are in the last week of February already? I don't know how it is possible that this month has felt like it has flown and been an eternity all at the same time! This living through a pandemic sure is discombobulating! As the month winds down, so does this edition of Sale-a-bration. There are just FIVE days left to take advantage  of this awesome opportunity to earn freebies...whether it is with a minimum $60 order or joining my Stamping Symphony family. Be sure to get your order in or join before midnight on February 28th so you don't miss out!

Although Sale-a-bration is drawing to a close, the January-June Mini Catalogue is just getting started! There are so many fabulous products in this mini it's a good thing that I have six months to showcase them all! This week I am all about the Simply Succulents bundle, pairing it with both the Artistry Blooms and In Good Taste Designer Paper from the Annual Catalogue. 

I love when I can spotlight new products while also calling attention to much-loved items that have been around a little longer. Of course, it doesn't hurt to remind you that this year's Annual Catalogue ends a whole month earlier than usual...the new book goes live May the 4th (be with you!)!

Today we are launching a brand new Cross-border Crafters Online Class...check it out:

I am absolutely IN LOVE with the projects in this class. It includes two sets of three coordinating cards; one bright cheery set featuring the Artistry Blooms DSP and the other featuring beautiful subtle shades and natural textures with the In Good Taste DSP. Each set includes two standard cards and one fun fold for a total of SIX designs in all. In addition to the six pre-cut project kits, you'll also receive exclusive access to a step-by-step tutorial video and a PDF supply list and measurement guide so you can recreate the projects as many times as you'd like.

As always, this class is FREE with a $60 minimum order using Host Code D3QR6EEG in my online store or emailed to me directly by Friday, March 5th, 2021. Because this is a Cross-border Crafters collaboration, this class is available to BOTH residents of Canada and the US.

Can you tell I'm longing for spring?? These beautiful shades remind me of the pretty purple hyacinths that will be lighting up my garden in a few months. Right now they're buried under a foot of snow, but I know that with the warmth of the spring sunshine and gentle April rains I'll be once again enjoying these colours in my yard. 
This card is SO easy to make and a quick way to used the succulent images without taking the time to colour them. I used two different ombre sheets from the Artistry Blooms DSP pack to stamp my images in Basic Grey ink. Then I die-cut them out and arranged them on a vellum ring I cut using the Layering Circle dies to create my wreath. I love the way I can get beautiful shading on the succulents without colouring at all!

I used the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder to add texture to the Basic White background panel... I love the detail and depth of the embossed pattern! The sentiment is stamped in Basic Grey ink and die-cut using the Potted Succulents dies. I LOVE that the die set includes three fabulous stitched label shapes!

On the inside of my Granny Apple Green card base, I added a Basic White panel on which I stamped several more of the succulent images, this time option to colour them with Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather Stampin' Blends...I just couldn't resist! These images are so much fun to colour and play with different combinations!
