This months blog hop features a color challenge with amazing colors from the 2017-2019 In Color Collection.

Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide are amazing colors that work so very well together.  I’m sure you can see that from this blog hop.

I chose to showcase the Lovely Friends stamp set with this color scheme.  This stamp set from the Annual Catalog features 23 stamps!   Ten of the Lovely Friends stamps are greetings.  My customers tell me they love stamp sets that have both greetings and images as they can just use 1 stamp set!

As you can see from this card, the Fresh Fig color has coordinating 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon. . . . I love this size of ribbon and am frankly on my third spool!

Here’s another layout with the Lovely Friends stamp set and the Fresh Fig/Tranquil Tide color scheme.  I used the Burlap stamp for the background.  The greeting on this one is showcased using the 1 1/4″ and 1 3/8″ circle punches.  Check out how great the Fresh Fig ribbon looks on this card!   Love it!

I love to give cards as gifts.  An exciting new product are the Acetate Boxes on page 13 in the Holiday Catalog. They are PERFECT!!!   They are designed to fit 5 cards and envelopes (I have actually found 6 to work just fine).

You can see that I texturized this box using the Layered Leaves embossing folder.  I love the added texture as it just makes it so much more special.
