The New Stampin’ Up Catalog Starts Tomorrow!!!

The new Stampin' Up catalog starts tomorrow! I am so excited!! This gorgeous stamp is in a level 1 hostess set called Because I Care so you can get it for FREE with a $150 or more order. Get a few friends together and do a book party and you can be the hostess, or call me to schedule a workshop! Then I can teach you some great stamping ideas and you will have a blast! I stamped the En Francais background first and then the hydrangea on top. I used markers to color the hydrangea direct to stamp. I think it was pear pizzazz, marina mist and concord crush.  That thin ribbon is also a new product from Stampin Up. It is 1/8 inch taffeta.

Please don’t take my Bermuda Bay away….


I just love this color so much and it goes so well with soft suede too! It is one of my favorite colors but maybe they will bring it back one day. This is another card from my Thoroughly Modern stamp camp.  I love stamping on the pretties kit flowers. They just look gorgeous this way, don't you think? I used the scallop trim border punch for the suede piece and the Very vintage wheel for the background.

Sweet Scoops…just what I need in this heat!

I don't know about you guys, but here in VA it has been extremely hot the past couple of weeks….like in the 100's several days. I don't ever remember it being this hot in June.So, I thought this card would be great to cool you off. The good thing is, if it is too hot to do stuff outside, you can always stay inside and stamp!

This was one of the make  and takes I did for my downline meeting this month. I used the Sweet Scoops stamp set from the Stampin Up Summer mini to make this one. I stamped the cone on white cardstock and then punched it out with the 1 3/4 circle punch. I stamped the ice cream in melon mambo and bermuda bay and cut those out. The background is our new square lattice embossing folder . For the banner, I used my bone folder to soften up the cardstock and then I made it go up and down. It is hard to see that in the photo but it looks better in person.

Vintage Vogue meets Thoroughly Modern

This is another one of the cards I am doing at stamp camp this coming week. I love the Thoroughly modern designer papers and the Vintage Vogue stamp set. The corduroy buttons are also one of my favorites. I am so going to miss them! I used soft suede and bermuda bay ink pads on this one too.

Thoroughly Modern card


Here is just one of the four cards (plus an adorable box) that you can make at my Thoroughly Modern Stamp Camp coming up this Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. I posted a pic with all of the projects about a week or so ago. All of the projects use the Thoroughly Modern paper which is retiring next week!!! Get it while you can. I love it! I used the daisy big shot die for this one.

These Builder Wheels are so much fun!



This cute card was created by my upline Melissa Ellis. She used the new builder wheels to create the top background part. They are so cool. You can put up to 3 of them on the same handle and have each wheel do  a different color. THis card uses the Posy Party, Thoughtful Friend, and Bees & Blossoms wheels. These are all available in the summer mini right now! The bottom part of the card is made using the Square Lattice embossing folder in the big shot!

Love these ribbon roses!


My friend Deb Valder showed me how to make these cool ribbon roses so I had to do a card with my customers this month and show them how to do it too! If you are a demonstrator, the directions are in the November Stampin Success magazine. I had a bunch of the Bride designer paper (retiring) left so I decided to use that for the background. I brayered over it with bashful blue ink and then made the ribbon rose to put in the center of the pretties kit flower (also retiring). It was a pretty easy card but looks like it was a lot of work.

Ever After is almost gone….sniff, sniff….

I am so bummed that this gorgeous set is being retired! I LOVE IT!  If you haven't ordered it yet, you better get it now before it is too late. It is on the chopping block and will be no longer available in less than 2 weeks. I did this card as one of the make and takes at my clubs this month and they loved it. This is an awesome set to use for weddings, anniversaries, etc. For this one, I stamped the heart in regal rose and the rest is stamped in soft suede.  The background is the En Francais stamp set.

Easy Peasy card….



 I was messing around with the hydrangea ( Because I Care stamp set) and stamped it on a piece of naturals ivory cardstock and I thought to myself that it really didn't need much else because the flower itself is so pretty so I just added the sentiment and ribbon….2 minute card done! I colored the flower with markers (direct to stamp). I used marina mist and concord crush plus pear pizzazz for the leaves.
