Create your own sunshine with the Quince Blossom stack!

Hi everyone, it is Karen from ScrappyCanuck Studios!  

Recently, DCWV sent me a new stack called Quince Blossom.  It is now available (or should be soon!) at Hobby Lobby.  If you have had a chance to stop by my blog, you will know that I use a lot of bold and bright colours when I am crafting.  This new soft, crisp, and clean stack has me wanting to do away with the pinks and purples...and embrace cream, teal, green, grey and white full time!  Let me tell you—this stack is a beauty! 

For this layout featuring my youngest daughter (with her incessant toothy grin, complete with one of those "new walker" head bruises),  I decided to showcase one of the pretty journaling tags from the stack as the title.  I really love these tags for both the graphics and the well-placed embossing.  It takes each of them from flat to fabulous!

On top of all the embossing, you will also find all sorts of great patterns that include blossoms with a touch of foil treatment on assorted elements (I LOVE the great page filled with alphas). This stack, with its neutral colours, is perfectly complimented with some of DCWV’s specialty material stacks like the Printed Corrugated card stock stack. 

Finally, I want to share with you one of my favourite parts of this new stack—a page that includes a couple of beautiful cards,  You can cut them out right from the stack, fold and use just them as they are!

It’s hard for me to give away anything but a homemade card now, but I have to admit that sometimes I find myself pulling one together at the last minute.  This is a great combination of quick and homemade.  While the designs are pretty enough on their own, you can also embellish them a bit with products like DCWV adhesive pearls or even a bit of ribbon and you are set to go.  Add one of the cute tags from the same page on the inside of the card, and no one will know that it took you less than 5 minutes to pull it together. 

Well, that’s it for me today!  I am off to finish another layout that I started with this stack.  Thanks for stopping by today!
