Touches of Texture for #TGIFC158

It seems like I have been gone for a long time …. we took a lovely vacation to Italy and returned last week. I hope to post vacation pictures soon. Jet lag has finally subsided, and I feel back to normal. Today I am jumping right back into blogging with a TGIF Challenge using Touches of Texture.

This week the challenge is a color challenge and it is two of my favorite colors, plus black. Yea! I adore Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist. Lemon Line Twist is a color you either love or hate. Love fits me just fine when it comes to Lemon Lime Twist.

Touches of Texture Card

Timeless Textures card created by Ginny Harrell

To create this card, you will need Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and Touches of Texture stamp set. You can easily change the look of the card by choosing different colors, just in case you don’t love Lemon Lime Twist (smile). I purposely left off the sentiment so this card could be used for any occasion. It always helps to have a stash you can go to when need a special card.

Touches of Texture has great texture stamps that create fun backgrounds, but it also has some wonderful flower images. The tiny dragonfly is super cute.

There is a lot going on at Stampin’ Up during May. The Occasions Catalog will end May 31: the retiring list is out and products are flying off the shelf, the Clearance Rack has amazing deals and we are all eagerly awaiting the new catalog. If you have any favorite items that are retiring I suggest you order as soon as possible.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I will be glad to help you with your orders.

This time of the SU year is always bittersweet. We anxiously await the new Annual Catalog, but we are sad to see some of our old friends leave us. I personally will miss Watercolor Wings, Santa’s Sleigh, Work of Art & Awesomely Artistic.

Which stamp sets will you miss the most?

I have 2 cards to share with you today.

#Retiring Stampin' Up Products #Stampin' Up #Ginny Harrell #Grown with Love

The first one uses Grown with Love. The images in this set are perfect for the gardener or flower lover in your life.

This card is cut narrower, so the watering can hang off the front, yet it still fits in a regular envelope.

Check out the tiny water drops. These cuties are retiring also.

My second card uses Birthday Wit stamp set. A little bit sarcastic and a lot of fun. The layout is the Triangle Fold Card I shared last week. You can see it HERE.

Little Mermaid for Freshly Made Sketches

I am participating in the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge today. This Little Mermaid is just the right size for this sketch. I have decided I like sketches more than color challenges. At least I think that is the case today. I bet I change my mind in a few days though.

FMS sketch#332 is such an easy, simple sketch. I love easy.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #Magical Day #Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog #Mermaid

 

I couldn’t resist adding a funny sentiment to the inside of mermaid card!

Freshly Made Sketches #Magical Day #Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog #Mermaid

I am so sad Magical Day stamp set is retiring. I have so enjoyed the tiny creatures and the fun sentiments. Whimsical images always make me smile. If you have any Harry Potter fans, Little Mermaid fans, or young people you craft for, then this stamp set is a must. Please note: Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, retiring stamp sets will be guaranteed available until May 25; all other products are not guaranteed and are only available while supplies last.

To create this card you need Magical Day Bundle, which includes the stamp set and framelits. You will also use Myths & Magic Designer Series Paper and Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Perennial Birthday, page 16 in the 2018 Occasions Catalog. I adore large sentiments.

Do you see the other retiring product on this card? Glitter Enamel Dots. Oh My! But they will be returning in new colors in June so that will work for me.  I just need to use these up.

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stamping!
