Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!
This month, the theme is Flowers in the Garden. We hope you are inspired by all the wonderful creations the Pals share with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we love reading your comments. Then, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
The Dainty Delights Die Set has the perfect, little, flower for a small wreath. Thinking the flowers would look pretty against a light color, I began with a Sahara Sand card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ folded at 4 1/4″. Sahara Sand is a retiring color, but the Dainty Delight stamp set and dies are carrying over to the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog.
Next, I cut a hole in the middle of the card front with one of the Irresistible Dies. This “online exclusives” set has been out of stock, due to popularity, but is scheduled to return the week of 4/17. That’s next week, so make a note of it!
After cutting, I backed the “hole” with Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. The sentiment, “the best is yet to come,” is from the Dainty Delight Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink.
The eight flowers were cut with a Dainty Delight Die from Fancy Flora Designer Paper (retiring), and backed with like-colored cardstock for thickness. The centers were cut from cardstock in three colors: Soft Suede (retiring), Rich Razzleberry (retiring), and Calypso Coral (carrying-over). After cutting and assembling the flowers, they were attached with Mini Dimensionals.
More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team; The Pals are very excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on May 10th, when our theme will be a Tic Tac Toe challenge, where our Design Team will create projects, using elements/supplies that are three in a row, column, or diagonal from the tic tac toe board.
Until then, have fun in your craft space.

My April Host Code Gift
Place an order of $75.00 or more, before tax and shipping, and I will send you the Raindrops Embossing Folder in May.
The Last Chance Products Sale began April 4th! There are two lists, which include all of the retiring products from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. Clicking the covers will take you to the lists.
The lists are extra long, because this is a “color refresh” year, so the fifteen retiring colors, and their associated products (ink pads, re-inkers, cardstock, Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Write Markers, ribbons, embellishments) are listed. I’ve pictured the retiring colors below. These products are usually the first to sell out, so order asap.
The discounted prices are on the right side, and will show when you order the item.
Additionally, I want to point out that there are bundles listed, but that doesn’t indicate the stamp set and dies are retiring. It means they will no longer be in a bundle with the 10% discount.
To make viewing easier, there is a plus mark at the top to enlarge the print. Also, I recommend having the catalogs in hand, because the lists are organized by page number.

Thank you for visiting. Have a great day!
