2019 Sneak Peek

20181120_170242

I've been PLAYING with NEW stamps!! Here is a peek at the lovely hibiscus flower from the Humming Along Stamp Set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  I love to play with color using Stampin' BLENDS!!

After coloring, I like the shimmer of Clear Wink of Stella #141897 on most flowers!! It applies quickly and dries fast. You will definitely see more of this lovely tropical flower beginning Jan. 3, 2019.
