Colorful Seasons!

Here is another great bundle in the new Stampin Up catalog going live in 2!! DAYS! Can you hear me screaming?? I can not wait!!!
This is the Colorful Season bundle. I just love this chair! I have seen several different people make a card like this and loved it but gave it my own spin. Several people are doing shadow box cards like this.
This set has stamps and dies for every season so you can use it all year long. I have used Flirty Flamingo and Chocolate Chip for the colors on this card. I stamped the flowers on the inside and put die cuts on the outside.
When I first saw this set I didnt like it but its really starting to grow on me. There are some awesome snowflakes in this set also!
Remember if you would like a new catalog just send me an email or leave a comment and the same if you would like to order. I will be placing an order on June 1st!!!
Happy Stamping!

Tranquil Tulips!

This is another new set in the Stampin Up Catalog going live this thursday June 1st! I so can't wait to order from this catalog. It is my absolute favorite ever!!
I cased this card from Pink Buckaroo Designs and changed it up just a little. If you are looking for inspiration she has a great blog!!!

This set with the tulips is called Tranquil Tulips. It is a hostess set. It is a photopolymer stamp set and is two step stamping. But its so cool because you use the same ink. No stamping off the first step or anything. And it matches up so easily! I loved stamping with it so much I had to do the envelope and the inside of the card!
I also used the Lovely Inside and Out stamp set which is also new in the catalog and coordinates with the Lovely Words Thinlits which I showed a couple of samples for already!
So only 3 more days until liftoff and we can order. If you would like a new catalog or place an order just send me an email or leave a comment. Unfortunately, my online store is down until the end of June !
Happy Stamping!

Catalog Post Its!

When we went to Onstage in April they gave these cute little post it note holders and I thought how fun it would be to make them for customers. But they were like three or four folds. I can't remember which. I was worried that they would cost a lot. 
But then I decided to try and make my own and this is what I came up with. I thought they would be adorable to give with the catalogs or just as customer appreciation gifts.
They are really easy to make and this way they can make notes or mark pages in the new catalog going live NEXT week!!!
I am so excited! I just can't wait to order out of the catalog! Yes I have pre ordered out of it but just selected items and not the things I am DYING to get my hands on!
I may have to expedite the shipping but haven't decided yet since that costs quite a bit!
Anyway, (sorry, I got distracted!!), for this cute little project, I used the new Crafting Forever stamp set,  and Pick a Pattern designer papers.
I also used some linen thread and those cute little paper clips that are being discontinued. I better hurry and order some more, I hope they aren't already gone!!
Happy Stamping!

Best Birds!

I was having fun playing with the Best Birds Stamp set and dies again. I also used lots of new products. The paper is from Color Theory DSP. The branches the birds are sitting on are from the Lovely Laurel Thinlits and so are the little decorative punches on the sentiment. Which the sentiment is also punched out with the new Pretty Label punch and the ribbon is a new ribbon also. The little flowers are stamped and cut out with the Birds and Blooms thinlits, then colored with Water Color Pencils using a Wink of Stella. I then added some Glitter enamel dots.
I love the little family of birds.

Lovely Friends!

Here is a card that we saw done at Onstage in San Diego. But I changed it up a little bit to add my own touches. The laurel branches and the banner in the center are kind of floating there and pop up when you open the card.
I made this card with the Lovely Friends bundle. I also used the new border punch again called the Ticket Tear Border Punch. I think it adds a fun touch.

Hello Friend!

Well, here is another card with no ribbon and this one designer papers. I will be so glad when June 1st gets here so I can order some STUFF!!!
I used Lemon Lime Twist, Flirty Flamingo and Basic Black for this card. I really like the Lemon Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo together. For some reason when I see the two colors together I think they look more like neon colors then they really are.
I used the Lovely Words Thinlit dies again and also the Better Together stamp set. There is one little advantage to not having all the matching things. It makes me think outside the box which is definitely not one of my specialties!

Freshly Made Sketch Challenge!

I made this card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week. I decided to turn the sketch sideways for my card.
 I used the Lovely Words Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits and Circle Shapes for the dies. Also the new Ticket Tear Border Punch. I am so glad there are two border punches in the new catalog. I have really missed having border punches.
There is also a die in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits you could use as a border also.

Of course I didnt think I wanted the stamp set that goes with the Lovely Words Thinlits so I used a phrase from the Weather Together stamp set which will also be carried over to the new catalog.

Since I ran out of Lemon Lime Twist ribbon already I didnt use ribbon for this card but I think it is okay without it.

For the dsp on this card I used the Eastern Palace DSP which you can get in a big bundle this month. You get the stamps, dies, dsp. You can even get three of the new incisors!!! And much more!

I love that the Lovely Words Thinlits pair up with the other dies!!

Happy Stamping!

Sketch Saturday Challenge #452

This card was made for the challenge at Sketch Saturday . I used some new Stampin Up products for this card. Actually all new products! Three new in colors, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig. The ribbon is one of the new in colors ribbons also. Its funny I had used all of my new ribbons on a project for my Catalog Premier Extravaganza coming up, except I got one length of ribbon wrong and got two left over pieces that were the perfect size for this bow.
My card is also using the Color Theory Dsp, Glitter Enamel dots (one of my favorite new products), and the Lovely Friends stamp set and dies.

Best Birds!

I finally got to use this set! It was my free set when I went to the Leavenworth retreat! I purchased the matching dies for it also. It is a very fun set. I colored it with my SU watercolor pencils and Wink of Stella.
I wanted to make a card that is with current products but products that will also carry over to the new catalog.
This card was made using the Creative Challenge sketch on Facebook for the Crafty Person Inspiration Club-Crafty Person Stampin Up Team!

Birthday Banner!

Here is my birthday banner for my class coming up in June. It has 16 panels so it is a fairly big banner. It could be made into two smaller banners if someone has shelves to put it on or a small table.
I used the new Delightful Daisy DSP coming out in the new catty next month. I love these papers.
Its hard to get a closer view of the banner because it is so long!
