Goodbye Gorgeous Gardens Die & Hello 30% Off (Starts April 9).

Create a Happy Birthday Card with the Gorgeous Garden Dies and Sweetly Scripted Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

Wild Wheat, a 2023-2025 Stampin’ Up! In Color, is nothing short of luscious paired with Night of Navy and gold. Think of Wild Wheat as a trendy, rich neutral (brass) and the color possibilities will flow. In addition to Night of Navy, I love it paired with rich colors like Stampin’ Up! Cherry Cobbler, Real Red, Lost Lagoon, Basic Gray, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss, Early Espresso, Berry Burst and Pretty Peacock. Try it with Pebbled Path, Moody Mauve or Boho Blue for a hip, retro style.

JUST IN:  Sweetly Scripted stamp set (sentiment) is back in stock!
