We’re already up to day eight of my farewell to retiring products and today we’re saying goodbye to the Verdant Garden stamp set.
I’ve made a series of cards with this stamp set that feature four of the 2019-20 in colours: Seaside Spray, Terracotta Tile, Rococo Rose and Pretty Peacock.
First cab off the rank? Seaside Spray. I’ve used the two bottom stamps in this set – they are designed to be used together to create this lovely tile effect.
Next is Terracotta Tile and Crumb Cake. Each of these cards features the same stamped design and this lovely scalloped linen ribbon in each of the In Colours.
Rococo Rose is such a soft and gentle pink – this card might be my favourite!
Pretty Peacock is last but not least and it also looks fantastic with Crumb Cake.
Here’s a closer look at all four cards. I’ve just found out that these beautiful ribbons will be carrying over to the new 2020-21 annual catalogue, which is great, but sadly the Verdant Garden stamp set will be retiring very soon.
Tomorrow I will be featuring another stamp set that is retiring from the 2019 Annual Catalogue and the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue, but in the meantime you can view all the retiring products in my online shop.

Why use just one In Colour when you can use all 10 together on your card. Lined up, side-by-side, they create such a stunning rainbow!
I’m excited to share not one but two cards with you this week.
The first card showcases all 10 In Colours, as well as the Free as a Bird stamp set.
The first step is to cut a 1cm strip of card stock from every In Colour. Line then up in rainbow order and adhere together with strips of tear and tape.
Next stamp your image or sentiment in Versamark, dust with white embossing power and heat emboss. Mount onto black card stock.
The background layer is a piece of Whisper White cardstock which has been stamped with black ink and coloured in with a variety of Blends and markers in the various In Colours. I love creating my own Designer Series Paper for my projects.
Mount the rainbow cardstock onto the middle of your DSP and adhere to a cardbase made from black cardstock.
I wasn’t planning on making a second card but I had leftover rainbow strips so I decided to see what they looked like with a sentiment stamped on top.
This time I used the Colourful Seasons stampset for my sentiment and the home made DSP. I deliberately die cut the cardstock on an angle using a stitiched rectangle die to add visual interest.
The background was stamped with two of the smallest dies in black and In Colours. Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots add texture and interest.
These rainbow colours just make me feel very happy and I hope they also put a smile on the face of whoever I post them to.

My cards tonight were inspired by the splashback in my powder room. It goes all the way from the basin to the ceiling but here’s just a snippet of these beautiful encaustic tiles.
As soon as I saw the new Verdant Garden stamp set I knew I would use it to make a card inspired by the tiles in my splashback.
Combined with the colour scheme of the Scalloped Linen Ribbon (oh be still my beating heart!!!) it also proved to be an excellent opportunity to introduce you to the new 2019-20 in colours.
First cab off the rank? Seaside Spray.
Seaside Spray is definitely one of my new favourite colours. How good does it look with Crumb Cake? (And yes I have deliberately referenced ScoMo for his incredibly versatile “motherhood and apple pie” statement).
Next, I’d like to introduce you to Terracotta Tile. I think Terracotta tile is going to get on famously with its closest cousin, Cajun Craze.
Rococo Rose is another new favourite, such a soft and gentle pink I just know I’ll be using a lot.
Pretty Peacock is very dark and rich – I can’t wait to team it with Night of Navy!
There is one more lovely 2019-202 in colour called Purple Posy that I haven’t included this week because the ink pad is not orderable yet. If you’re wondering what it looks like it’s a very pale purple, sort of a love child of Highland Heather and Smokey Slate.
Here’s a closer look at the other 4 in colours.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented, Rachel Palmieri.
