I am so excited to participate in my first blog hop ever this week! And how appropriate the theme is for a blog “hop”…. Easter! And as luck would have it, my card features a “sneak peek” of a new Designer Series Paper(DSP) along with a flower stamp perfect for any bunny from the upcoming Ornate Style set! All of it layered on top of a new Ornate Layers Die.
All of these are from a special group of products in the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog that you will be able to get starting April 1st. These worked perfectly with the Easter theme and the Fable Friends bunny stamp I wanted to use. It’s such fun! See all the products in this suite HERE! And get your list ready for April 1st! And if you have a sharp eye, apparently the products in this suite give us a sneak peek of a new In Color coming with the catalog launch in June. I think it is a new green or yellow, but I am not sure! Let me know if you see it.
Watch out for some more “sneak peeks” that I will show in some upcoming posts as well as the “opening day” for ordering April 1st. And no, I am not fooling. It’s really gonna happen!
Stampin’ Tip: I want to point out the strip of Rococo Rose linen ribbon I have under the sentiment. This is the lacy edge of the Scalloped Linen Trim. I just ripped it off and tucked it under my sentiment. I needed something light and feathery as my embellishment and this did the trick. It frays and gets all rough along the edges, but I think that is part of the charm!

I love this card. I kept looking at it and decided that what I most like are the layers and the combination of colors. Thank you for sharing your card in this month’s hop.
Linda, thank you so much! I didn’t really follow the exact colors for this DSP, but I thought they worked well for an “Easter card” look. And I like how it turned out. So, I really appreciate your comment!
