One of my favorite Suites from the upcoming Holiday Catalog is Frosted Floral. I love the soft, muted look of the flowers and the shimmery pattern paper is to die for. The color combinations in the paper are truly beautiful. I think this is my new favorite color combination: Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride, and Mint Macaron.
The large flower in the center is inked in Blushing Bride and then I dabbed on a bit of Blackberry Bliss in the center to add dimension to the petals. The smaller flowers are stamped in Blackberry Bliss.
You can see just a hint of the polka dot ribbon here peeking out from the bottom of the doily. Our polka dot ribbon comes in white, which means that you can have it really in any color your choose with the help of our markers. I colored the ribbon with the Light Blackberry Bliss Blends marker.
I bet you’re wondering what happened with my washing machine. Well, it still doesn’t work even after replacing the lid switch with a brand new lid switch. So it’s likely the motor that’s gone bad, and that’s too expensive a repair on too old a machine. If you have a family, you know how quickly the laundry piles up. My local store says they start their Labor Day weekend sales later this week. So we are doing our best to make do until then.
Our Bonus Days special is a great chance to stock up on what you need now, and then get something at a discount in September. For every $50 you spend before August 31 (before shipping and tax), you will earn a $5 Bonus Days coupon code that can be used September 1–30. There is no limit to the amount of $5 Bonus Bucks you can earn and they can all be used at the same time! The Bonus Buck coupons are sent out by email to you once you place your order. Make sure you keep that email in a safe place as Stampin Up does not track those coupon codes.
