Pink Overload! Blended Bloom, Perfect Pennants & Greetings Thinlits Dies

Hello again! I went over the top "pink" with these two cards, something I don't usually do. I have said it before, that pink isn't necessarily my go-to colour, but I'm trying to incorporate it more. Well, I sure have today... 

Okay, are you ready for pink overload? ............. This first card is using a single stamp called {Blended Bloom} and I absolutely LOVE it. It looks like a Helleborus plant which I have in my garden.  

Don't you think they look similar? Not the colours, of course - but the shape. Such a pretty plant, I get so many compliments on mine - which is a greenish purple colour. 

Hellebores: ~~Helleborus Winter Jewels Harlequin Gem~~:

The designer series paper is from the {It's my party DSP stack}. I added a few other retiring goodies, the coordinating enamel dots, black stampin' emboss powder, the banner punch, two toned twine & the sentiment is from {Perfect Pennants}. I just love this sentiment, so lovely. 

Next, I was just taking a break from some gardening and decided to "play" for a little bit. I had some bits & pieces lying around and put them to work and this is what I came up with. Most items are retiring, like the Itty bitty punch pack, Greeting Thinlits Dies, Shine on Specialty Designer Series Paper, Two-toned Baker's Twine, 2-1/2" Circle Punch, White Filter Paper, It's my party enamel dots, Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper. In other words, a whole bunch of fab stuff! 

Lots of layers, textures and even a bit of sparkle going on with this card. I'm pleased with how this pretty "pink" card turned out and the pink wasn't as scary as I thought... who knew?! 

I have a bunch more cards to share today featuring some of my favourite retiring products, hope you'll check back later!! 

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
