With the announcement of the color refresh, I wanted to use some of the retiring colors.  I still have plenty of the Just Delightful Simply Scrappin kit that was a SAB option several years ago.  I just love this kit – and it’s perfect for spring time.  I was able to quickly make several cards and still have a lot of the kit left.


  • Cardstock:  So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Cameo Coral (retired), Certainly Celery, Just Delightful Simply Scrappin Kit
  • Ink:  Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Cameo Coral (retired), Calypso Coral


For these cards I thought the new Secret Garden would go great.  I love the framelits that make it so easy to cut the flowers and leaf out.  I embossed the edge of the 2 1/2 x 5.5 bashful blue with the needlepoint border embossing folders (the cross-stitch pattern).  The sentiment if from the Delight in Life stamp set (retired).


Everything on this card is from the scrappin kit except the embossed so saffron piece (4 1/8 x 5 3/8).  I embossed this piece with the fancy fan embossing folder.  The bashful blue piece is 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.  The designer series paper (dsp)  is 1 1/4 x 5.


This card also uses everything from the kit except the twine and brad.  The dsp is 1 1/4 x 5.  I embossed the certainly celery piece with the fancy fan embossing folder.


This card has a 1″ x 5 1/4 piece of dsp matted with a 1 1/4 x 5 1/4 piece of certainly celery.  The stamp sets used were Lots of Thoughts (retired) and Office Accoutrement (retired).


These cards use the large scallop edgelit and the coordinating essentials paper-piercing pack.  The flower on the right card is from the retired Simple Flower Embosslit that I snagged off the clearance rack.  The leaves are from the new Secret Garden Set.  The sentiment is from the stamp set Made for You.


These cards feature the new That’s the Ticket stamp set and coordinating ticket punch.  The dsp pieces are 1 3/4 x 3 1/2.  The bashful blue piece is 2 1/2 x 3 7/8.  I embossed one with the stripes embossing folder and the other with the square lattice.  The “admit one” ticket is stamped in marina mist on bashful blue paper.

Thanks for looking.
