Happiness Grows Within Quick & Easy Greeting Card

My parents have an arbor in their front yard in New Hampshire where a beautiful purple wisteria grows. The vines grow all around the arbor and have even shot across the lawn! Logan and I call it the Harry Potter vine. I’ve only seen it in bloom once or twice, but it sure is beautiful. When the Wisteria Wishes Stamp Set came out in the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, I knew I was in for hours and hours of fun creating with this pretty bundle. Create a cute quick & easy card in just minutes with the Wisteria Wishes Stamp Set and add a bit of pop with the Parakeet Party Plaid paper from the 2022-2024 In-Color Designer Series Paper Pack. Then use this layout over an over again with your other favorite stamp sets and patterned paper.

Ranunculus Romance Just For You

Did you know Ranunculus is a flower genus with over 600 species? Rananunculus includes buttercups, spearworts and water crowfoots. Some species are compared to the peony, but ranunculus tends to be more flat with a bit smaller bloom size. Thank you Wikipedia! LOL. The large bloom die in the Rananuculus Romance Bundle sure makes a statement in the background of this heartfelt For You greeting card.
