My share for today is 4 Cards from Stampin' Up's new Soft Sayings Card Kit. 
I'll share the rest with you next week.  The Cards in the kit have 4 of the 5 2017-2019 In-Colors.  .

Let's take a look at the first 4 Cards:

Stampin' Up's new Soft Sayings Kit is so pretty, full of soft colors and great new Sentiments.  I love how the kit came together to make such soft and pretty cards.

The kit includes:
Soft Sayings Stamp Set and Clear Block
20 Card Bases, 2 each of 10 Designs
20 Envelopes
Basic Gray Archival Stampin' Ink Spot
Die Cut Accents in Gold Glitter, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide and White
Lemon Lime Twist Baker's Twine
Washi Tape
Stampin' Dimensionals

The Card above shows one of the Large Die Cut's in White.  So pretty against the Berry Burst colors.

The Card pictured above has one of the Gold Glitter Flower Accents and the Lemon Lime Twist Baker's Twine.

I really didn't think that I would like the new Lemon Lime Twist In-Color; but, I'm in love with it now.  When paired with the right colors, it makes for a really pretty color combination.

Here is a 2017-2019 In-Color Combination Chart that Stampin' Up gave us.  Sorry it is so small but I couldn't make it any larger and I couldn't find the actual PDF.

The Coordinating colors for the kit are Basic Gray, Berry Burst, Gold, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide and White.

The Die Cuts in this kit are so cool and so perfect for the Cards in this kit.

The stamping is quite easy too!  For the Card pictured above, I stamped the two Small Leaves, one Large Leaf and the Sentiment.

You get two each of 10 Designs, so, if you know me, I will come out with my own designs using the kit in the near future. 

I'll share the rest of the Cards in the Soft Sayings Kit with you on Monday if all goes as planned.

That's all I have for today.  I hope you enjoyed my blog post and thanks for stopping by!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges, using them for their own card classes and (using them on their blogs as their own creations) - Please give credit where credit is due.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!

  1. Pretty, pretty cards, Lynn. Love the water color look and the embellishments. I rarely order kits so I love to see pictures of the cards created with them. Thanks so much for sharing. Having a good weekend!
