Happy New Year! I wish you all lots of joy, good health and much love in 2021.
Here’s my Sneak Peek for the Garden Wishes Bundle. When I was thinking about what to do for my first post of 2021, many ideas came to mind. I kept going back to the Garden Wishes Bundle. The Bundle has been available for a while now and I’ve seen many versions of it. It’s part of the Dandy Garden Suite featured in the upcoming January-June 2021 Mini Catalog scheduled to go live on January 5th.
One of the perks I receive by being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is that I get to see, touch and feel all of the new products before they’re available to the customer. This is probably the most exciting perk since excitement is generated early for the new and I look forward to that bit of a refresh. I’m sure you do, as well. We all need a refresh from time to time.
I’ve been stamping so many holiday cards and putting together holiday projects that stamping and coloring a few wisps of flowers blowing in the breeze is refreshing. Along with all of this, I love Misty Moonlight and here I go again with the blue and yellow color combination. I am going to work on “refreshing” that fact….maybe!
So, on to my card. Actually, my inspiration for this design was that little bee. I saw the bee stamp in the stamp set and had to use it somewhere. I’m not sure if you know it but the name “Debbie” means bee and I’ve always loved bumblebees. When you think about it, they are smart and industrious. Okay, enough about that. (smile)
This card design grew from that little bee. I love when that happens. It’s proof that inspiration can come from just about anyplace. I stamped all of the images except for the bee in Smoky Slate ink and used my Blends to color the images. A few layers later, my card was complete. There’s no sentiment today. This card will be one of my personal handwritten notes.
So, find that one little thing that you love, add a few colored images and a layer or two and create something simple and soothing.
…the only limitation is your imagination!
