Sweet Scoops!

Here is a card I made using one of the NEW stamp sets called Sweet Scoops which is in the Summer Mini! (You can order from this catalog on May 1st.) The sentiment is from Watercolor Trio which is also a new set and I've used a new embossing folder called Square Lattice that you use with the Big Shot. Sweet Scoops really is a fun set and I'm looking forward to making some different cards with it. If you don't have a demonstrator and would like me to send you a copy of the summer mini, just email me by clicking on the email button on the right-hand side of my blog and I will send it off to you! Thanks for visiting!

Accessories: Big Shot, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Scallop Oval punch, Large Oval punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Whisper White Organza ribbon

Spring is Here!

Here is another flower using the Sweet Treat Cups. I used Orchid Opulence which is one of my VERY favorites but it will be retiring. I may just have to buy a few packages of this before it goes away!

Don't forget that Friday is the last day to order from the Occasions Mini and then on Saturday, May 1st you will be able to order from the new Summer Mini Catalog! As a demonstrator I was able to preorder a few of the stamp sets a few weeks ago. Tomorrow I will show you a card using the Sweet Scoops set and Watercolor Trio!

Thanks for stopping by! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me!

For You

Today I have a card that also features many items from the Occasions Mini. I used the Specialty Designer Series Paper called Sending Love Specialty. I love this paper and am really going to miss it. I also used the bird punch but ran it through the Big Shot first using the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder. The button is also from the Mini and are the Sending Love Epoxy Brads in Chocolate Chip. I got the idea for this card from Becky Roberts. You can see her card here. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wonderful Mother

I made this card using Vintage Vogue from the Occasions Mini. (Don't forget that this catalog is only good until April 30th and then we will have a brand new one!) I also used the Butterfly punch - for the bottom one (not sure if you can see it), I used Bashful Blue and for the one on top I used our cardstock vellum. After I made this I thought that the vellum butterfly would look really pretty if it were run through the Big Shot. I will post another one showing that look which is really beautiful. I used a half pearl from the Pretties Kit for the center of the butterfly and used a glue dot to adhere it. The paper is our Designer Series paper in Bashful Blue. This paper is also two sided as all of our other papers. Thank you for stopping by and hope you are having a great weekend!

Color Renovation!

Stampin' Up! announced on Tuesday that we will have some new color collections in July! Some colors are retiring, some In Colors are being brought back and there will be some brand new colors as well! Two of my favorite In Colors, Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo, will be staying and not retiring! This is exciting news! I can't wait to see the new colors. I will post more information later today but here is a chart that shows you the new collections!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter! Here is another 3x3 card that I made using "A Flower For All Seasons." I also used the watercolor crayons (these come in all 48 Stampin' Up colors) and the aqua painter. It is so relaxing to sit and color. I am hoping to spend some time today stamping (we celebrated Easter yesterday). If you would like to place an online order, just click the button to the right and it will take you right to my Stampin' Up! website. If you have any questions, please email me. Hope you have a wonderful day. Thank you for visiting!
