An Unlikely Color Combo & My Digital Classes


Bloomin' With Kindness

Sadly, I needed to make a couple of Sympathy Cards today. Two dear friends lost their brother in an accident this week.  Time to pull out my Blessings From Heaven Stamp Set.

Robin's Card Tips

  • Baked Brown Sugar serves as my card base and my neutral.  My Corners were rounded with my Envelope Punch Board.
  • My card inside and my tag are Pool Party Card Stock Stamped with Cajun Craze ink.  The Flower is from the Blooming With Kindness stamp set and my verses are from the Blessings from Heaven Stamp set.
  • After stamping my flower I embossed my front panel with my go to embossing folder, Square Lattice.
  • Playtime, the accents include: Gingham Garden Washi Tape, Old Olive & Pink Pirouette Ribbons, Natural Trim & Linen Thread, and a Cajun Craze button from the Regals Designer Buttons.

Blessings From Heaven

With the Envelope Liner Framelits boring envelopes are a thing of the past.  Cajun Craze Designer Paper is one of 10 Colors included in the Regals Color Collection Designer Series paper Stack.


 Yes, I love to play with colors.  Let's face it, I serve my meals on Fiestaware.  But, when I first saw this unlikely color combo, I thought No Way.  Much to my surprise and delight, they do look great together.  I did swap out the retired colors for comparable current Stampin' Up! Colors: Cajun Craze, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Old Olive & Pool Party.
