Stampin' Up Painted Glass

If you look carefully at the stained glass image on this card, versus the stained glass window on the sympathy card I posted last week, you will see that it is the same image minus the arch at the top of the window. I also used So Saffron on the glass panes that did not have flowers or butterflies.  It is such a different look!  

Stampin' Blends are perfect to color these images.  I am excited that there are additional colors of Blends up the upcoming annual catalog.  I really need to start showing some love for the other vellum paper in this pack!  LOL!

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love First Communion Card

I am really itching to spend some time with the Share What You Love Suite!  After I made the First Communion Card for my mother to give Anna, I pulled out this designer series paper.  Some of the images are pearlized so it has a pretty sheen to it.  Anna loves purple so thought I would use it for her card from us.  I added some pearls to the center of the flowers.  I am so glad Inspired Events is carrying over to the new catalog!

Stampin' Up! Anna's First Communion

My youngest granddaughter will be making her First Holy Communion in just a few short weeks.  I made up a few cards for her.  This is the card my mother will be giving her.

One of the new products in the upcoming catalog is the beautiful Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty designer series paper.  The pack is filled with different images and different sizes, including borders, to make beautiful cards in just a few minutes. The greeting is from a fun new alphabet set called Make A Difference.  You can create your own greeting with a couple of different fonts in this one set!  It is part of the sneak peek bundle, Share What You Love, that will be available in May.  I found it very easy to line up, but apparently I need work on centering the words!  LOL!

Stampin' Up! RIP Mrs.C

I attended a funeral this morning.  One of my stamping friend's mother passed away last week at the age of 101.  She was a remarkable woman!  I only met her a few times, and as I listened to her pastor talk about her, I wish I had gotten to know her better.  

The church where the funeral Mass was held has beautiful stained glass windows in it.  I am very familiar with the church as this was my father's parish growing up.  He and my mother graduated from the high school way back in the 1940's.

The Painted Glass suite is a new suite in the upcoming Annual catalog.  The Graceful Glass vellum cardstock has some beautiful images that work for a variety of occasions.  I love that the coordinating stamp set has an Old English font for the sentiments.  

Rest In Peace, Mrs. C.
