Southern Serenade is a beautiful stamp set with some great sentiments. The large flower stamp shows Fireweed, a flower that grows wild all around Anchorage, where we lived for eight years. The flowers are a vibrant dark pink, very much like the Berry Burst I used on this card. The lower Fireweed blossoms started opening at the beginning of summer, soon after the snow melted. When the top flowers opened, we knew summer was over and it was time for snow again.

The Stamparatus makes stamping easy and it opens up lots of fun techniques! I used it to make a wreath. It’s really easy! If you pre-ordered your Stamparatus, you either have it now or it’s on the way. If you didn’t get to pre-order, they will be available in the new annual catalog that goes live June 1st.

I love roller coasters. My son is a bit fanatic about them. So of course, I had to have this stamp set and coordinating pop-up Thinlets! Assembling the pop-up track is a bit of a challenge, but if you take it slow and easy, you can do it! And it’s certainly worth the effort. It’s really quite impressive.

The Eclipse Technique has been very popular lately. I don’t know who came up with it, but I think it looks great. The Amazing You stamp set and Celebrate You Thinlets work great together for this project. I think Eclipse cards look best when those centers from the letters are put in their right places. The hardest part is not losing those tiny pieces.

I totally planned to post this video before Sale-a-Bration ended. Perhaps you were able to get them (free) and can make this card. If not, I’m sorry that you cannot order Amazing You now. I do have a list of other stamps sets you could use instead. You also can’t order the Celebrate You Thinlits right now, but they will be in the annual catalog on June 1st. I have a few other dies that you might consider until then.

(I also used “Fun Foam” usually found with kids’ craft supplies.)

Here are a few other stamp sets that would look great with this card.

And here are some word dies that could work as well.

I love Petal Palette! It is a large set (It comes in 2 stamp cases!) and has some great images and sentiments too. I used the Thank you, but any of the other sentiments would work just as well. Not only that, Stampin’ Up! offers coordinating Petals & More Thinlits. That makes it easy to put together some beautiful cards. I also used Sheet Music to make my own printed background paper. Sheet Music is actual score: Für Elise, by Beethoven.

This stamp set is full of cute piggies, but the flying one has my heart. Spin the wheel and she’ll fly around the card. And just like this little piggy, if you give it a try I think you’ll feel like you can fly. It’s really not all that difficult.

In addition to these supplies from Stampin’ Up! you will need a pair of thin magnets and a tiny brad. The links will take you to Amazon for these items.

I can almost smell the crisp fresh smell of fall leaves. I want to slip on a snugly sweater and the season. The Colorful Seasons Bundle has been very popular and there are great reasons for that. There are wonderful snowflakes, summer beach chairs, and spring flowers. You can make this card with these products from Stampin’ Up!
