The new colors are here! Stampin' Up! has revamped the core colors to give us fresh creative options. It's hard to believe the last update was 5 years ago. I'm so excited for you to see the gorgeous new colors!


Stampin' Up! planned well and is taking advantage of the 2018 colors Revamp to also introduce newly designed and improved ink pads.

Banners for You!

My stamp clubs met last weekend--always a fun day!!!  I had several requests for cards, and one was for a retirement!  I don't have any stamps specifically saying "Happy Retirement", so I can up with this, using the Banners for You Stamp Set:


I loved the colors in the Nature's Poem Designer Paper -- and this card could be for a man or woman!  Here are all the products used:


Healing Hugs



  • Lovely Lipstick Cardstock- 5 ½” x 8 ½”, folded in half @ 4 ¼”
  • Whisper White Cardstock- (3 pieces) 3 ½” x 3 ½”, 2 ¼” x 4 ¼”, plus scrap for sentiment and leaves approx. 3” x 3”
  • 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper in Pineapple Punch- 3” x 3”


  1. Fold your card base in half and stamp the image with small plus signs on card front in Lovely Lipstick. The stamp comes from Healing Hugs and I stamped on the top right and bottom left of the card front.
  2. Adhere the 3 ½” x 3 ½” white square to the front of the card. Then layer the Pineapple Punch paper on top, centered.
  3. Take the rectangle Whisper White piece (2 ¼” x 4 ¼”) and stamp two flowers in Lovely Lipstick. Then on your scrap Whisper White piece stamp your sentiment in Memento Black and your leaves in Granny Apple Green.
  4. Punch out the sentiment using the Tailored Tag punch and hand cut your leaves with paper snips.
  5. Attach the rectangle flower piece with dimensionals to the front of your card.
  6. Then, put snail only on the stem part of the leaves and tuck them under each flower. I like the ends of the leaves to lift off the card for dimension.
  7. Add your sentiment to the center with dimensionals.
  8. Lastly, add a few Artisan Pearls.
