Holiday Catalog

Oooh, I can hardly wait for the Holiday Catalog to arrive!  I will have access to it in a couple of weeks.  I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store for us.  In the meantime,  I will be ordering some Christmas dsp so I can be ready to start my cards for this year.

Did you know you can still buy a select 3, get 1 dsp free?  Yes, the sale will end on July 31 so get your list together!  I know I'll be doing another order.  The papers are so pretty!  This time, I will get Under The Mistletoe along with others I didn't get the first time.  

See the rest here:  PRETTY PAPERS

In case you missed my previous post, they can all be seen close up in this video.  Please be sure to leave a comment and let me know your favorite!  I might just send out a couple of samples to you!

Share What You Love

I LOVE this dsp!!  It's card stock weight and some of the papers are shimmery.  It's gorgeous!  I made this card and several others with it.  I wish I had taken inside pics of this card.  You can see the other side of the dsp inside. I made the base from Rich Razzleberry (8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4).  I cut off a panel at 1 1/2 inches.  I then cut a piece of Share What You Love specialty designer series paper (4 1/4 x 5 1/2).  I adhered it inside the card stock, wrapped it with this pretty velvet ribbon and added a Linen Thread bow.  The sentiment is from the Stitched All Around stamp set and cut out with Stitched Labels Framelits.  This was made for one of my team members for her birthday.  I can't even count the July birthday cards I sent out!  I think half the people I know were born in July.  I would love for you to leave me a comment.  It'll make my day!  And feel free to ask questions. Thanks for stopping by.

I love the Springtime Impressions thinlits dies!  Did I mention how excited I am that Coastal Cabana is back?!!  I truly love this color.  I could live the rest of my life with only Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay for colors!  I paired the Coastal with Petal Pink.  This is a color I didn't think I would like, but I haven't stopped using it!  It's a pretty peachy pink that's very easy to blend in with other colors.  The sentiment is from Abstract Impressions.  Such a pretty and versatile stamp set!

I cut the die in Whisper White and then used Sponge Daubers and colored in with Soft Seafoam, Petal Pink, Coastal Cabana, and Poppy Parade.  I finished it off with Faceted Dots.  Just click on the graphics to shop.  Please leave me a comment to let me know your favorite new or returning color.

From the Heart...

I feel like I've been making a lot of "from the heart, thinking of you, with sympathy" cards lately.  I'm thankful I have new products to make it easier!  Here is one using the beautiful new blue called Balmy Blue, and the specialty designer series paper called Delightfully Detailed.  There are pieces you can use as strips and some as a mat, or you can simply cut to size and use the flowers and leaves as layers.  I scattered a few of the tiny colored pearls from the Share What You Love suite.  The sentiment is from Petal Palette on a Stitched oval.  Let me know what you think!  And click below to view the catalog.  Feel free to contact me for a free copy if you are not working with another demonstrator.

Purple, purple

I think Stampin' Up! has made a purple lover out of me.  I've never been a big fan of it, but the two new purples are so pretty and easy to work with!  The first is Highland Heather and the second Gorgeous Grape.  I decided to put Gorgeous Grape to work with the Abstract Impressions stamp set and some watercolor paper.  I used Granny Apple Green for the leaves.  I love this color, but I've always loved greens.  Aren't these new colors beautiful!  I've been using a lot of Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam too.

I stamped on watercolor paper and spritzed it enough for it to bleed a bit.  The sentiment piece was made from Stitched Labels framelits and I added a tiny piece of Highland Heather to make it stand out a little.  Let me know what you think!
