Welcome to the March 2023 IRBH (InKing Royalty Blog Hop)! This month we are focusing on Flowers. I used the Sweet Citrus Bundle along with Regency Park Designer Series Paper, Basic Borders Dies, and Beautiful Shapes Dies to create my floral card today. After reading this post, I hope you will hop to the next blog on the hop, Renae Novak at Blessed by Cards. Scroll down below the directions for my card to see the whole blog hop list.

Here’s some news!

Stampin’ Up! has announced that there will be a color refresh with the new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. (We already know Pretty Peacock and Lost Lagoon are coming back.) If there are any items from the current Annual Catalog that you want, I recommend ordering them as soon as you can, because some things are already selling off the shelves, especially ink pads and refills. Once they announce exactly which colors will be leaving, those will sell out very quickly, so don’t wait!

This is a teaser photo that Stampin’ Up! shared with demonstrators recently. I can’t wait to see it in color! But even in the black & white version, you can tell there is a nice mix of light, medium, and deep shades coming.
