Seriously The Best is another stamp set that will be retiring on June 2nd. This is definitely a stamp set that I will be keeping forever. You may not see it on my blog but I will use it a lot. It is in the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog and goes with one of the kits also called Seriously The Best. It has three very large sentiments, three small sentiments and a couple of other images included in it. I love, love love the large sentiments.
I decided to pair this stamp set with another stamp set that is in the Mini Catalog called Forever Blossoms. This stamp set has matching dies called Cherry Blossom dies and until June 2nd you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. After that, both products will still be available in the 2020/2021 Annual Catalog but you won’t be able to get the bundle discount.
To make this card I first adhered a piece of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper onto a piece of Petal Pink cardstock and then adhered that to a Whisper White card base. This DSP will be retiring on June 2nd. Then I stamped the flowers and leaves in Memento Black Ink and colored them with Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow Stampin Blends. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink and cut that out using one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I love those dies and I am happy to say they will be carrying over into the next catalog. I added a piece of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon and a few of the Champagne Rhinestones to add a little sparkle.
Moving Update: They movers arrived Thursday late to look over the house and then spent all day Friday and half of Saturday loading the truck. I don’t know how they do it! One of them picks up my dining room table and walks out of the house with it and into the truck by himself! Kind of crazy! They should arrive in Nashville on Tuesday when we get to unpack everything we packed. I have to say, this is the last time I am going to move!
In the meantime, I needed some lunch. I found a Lean Cuisine in the back freezer and stuck it in the microwave. When I took it out, I realized I had no silverware. It was all packed up! I had to improvise.
Yep. I found a paper plate, tore it in pieces and used that as a spoon! It was either that or one of those razor blade box openers. I figured the plate was safer. I am getting smarter in my old age!
This is a gorgeous card! And I love your innovation and creativity, not only in crafting, but also in life. Great spoon (and I’m glad you chose that instead of the box opener!).

Crafters always figure out a way! Great improvisation, Susan (and safe) 🙂 This card is beautiful; I love the soft colours. I’m really excited for you, starting your new ‘next chapter’ in your new home.
