Spotlight Gala

Spotlight on Greenhouse Gala, that is! The star of this card is the beautiful new Greenhouse Gala designer paper (available July 1st). As a demonstrator, I am able to pre-order select items from the new catalog and when I saw this paper, I had to have it and I think you will too! The colors are so opulent. It's some of the prettiest dsp we've had in awhile. Credit for this fantastic layout goes to Jaydee @ Stampin' with Jaydee. I saw her Neopolitan card and I knew I wanted to make one highlighting this gorgeous paper! This is such an quick layout and I was so inspired, I made two!

The first uses chocolate chip, daffodil delight (new core color) and real red. Aren't these colors gorgeous together? Do you remember Reese Whitherspoon's yellow dress and red pumps at the Oscars a few years ago? Wasn't that was a fresh and unexpected color combination? This paper makes me think of that fabulous outfit. The flower stamp is also a sneak peek from the new Friends Never Fade set and the sentiment is a new hostess level 1 set, Because I Care.

The {signature} inside with the same flower stamped in daffodil delight and chocolate chip. Those cute little real red dots are part of the level 2 hostess set Punched Posies (available now in the summer mini):

Here is the second one also featuring Greenhouse Gala paper--isn't it beautiful?! I know I am repeating myself but you've got to see it! Chocolate chip, baja breeze and pumpkin pie are featured here with another flower stamp from Friends Never Fade:

A close-up of the flower detail:

The inside using baja breeze, chocolate chip and pear pizzazz (new in color) markers to color the flower and the same Punched Posies dots in pumpkin pie:
So does that get you ready? If the sneak peek goodies are this good, wait until you see the new catalog! That's all for today--thanks for stopping by...cheers!

Wow, gorgeous bold colors on these two! I don't think I could pick a favorite! As always, I love the inside of your cards just as much as the outside!

Nance, I've seen a few cards on other blogs using these papers, but I must say... YOUR's is by far my favorite. LOVE your style. They are both beautiful!

Wow is right, this dsp is beautiful. Love the stamp in an unexpected upper right-hand corner
it just sets off the gorgeous paper. As usual the inside of your cards is a treat as well, great job (I can understand why you'd make two!

Two for the price of one - these are gorgeous - that DSP is soooo pretty and you did a wonderful job with it! I swear one of these days I am going to do the inside and when I do I am sending it to you because I love how you do yours!

I love what you did with this..... I've been wondering what to do with this side of the greenhouse gala dsp because it is such a strong pattern... this is the ideal use for it. Love what you did with the inside, too. I'm so pleased I inspired you a little and thank you for sharing these fabulous cards
