More Sneak Peeks

I made this card using the new In-color, Dusty Durango. Aren't Stampin' Up's color names fun? I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set as well as the new level 3 hostess set, Kind & Caring Thoughts. (You can earn this level 3 hostess set with a $500 workshop order starting July 1st! There are 12 stamps in the set.) I like that the card is elegant but has very simple lines.
Don't forget, the retiring sets and retiring accessories will disappear after June 30th, so don't delay if you wanted any of those items. Once the new catalog is in effect, those items are gone, gone, gone. You can go directly to my website to order these items.

Altered Notebooks

I found some cute notebooks at Walgreen's that were 3 for $2 and decided to purchase some to alter. Above are a few of the ones I have done so far using some of the new stamps and designer series paper and ribbon.

More Sneak Peeks

These are samples of the cards that I was planning to use for our monthly demonstrator stamp 'n chat. Unfortunately, we had to cancel because 3 of our ladies became ill. We are planning to do a card swap instead, so each of the ladies will receive a copy of the top card. I used the new Circle Circus stamp set as well as one of the new level 2 hostess sets. I hope the ladies will enjoy the card.

Sneak Peek #3

The above cards were made with the new In Color--Bermuda Bay. I just love the new Modern Label Punch. I used it not only for the greeting, but to make the petals on the flowers. I used the Circle Circus, Teeny Tiny Greetings, and Razzle Dazzle stamp sets. And, of course, some of the wonderful new dotted ribbon!
More sneak peeks coming soon--check back often!

Sneak Peek Cards

I wanted to try some of the new stamps and accessories I got in the mail this week. I combined some of the new items with some of the retiring designer series paper.
The new colors I used are Soft Suede and Crushed Curry. The new stamp sets are Animal Stories, Teeny Tiny Wishes, and Circle Circus. I used the new modern label punch and the matching die from the new movers and shapers.
Don't you just love the new polka dot ribbons? They are available in each of the six new In Colors! These new items and much more will be available on July 1st! Just go to my website on July 1st to take a look at the new catalog. If you would like your very own copy, just let me know, and I can send one your way. Contact me for price.

Caleb's First Birthday

This past weekend I flew to Oregon for my grandson's first birthday. I wanted to make him a very special card, so I used the pop-up cake die and Rainbow Sherbet Designer Series Paper. It was so much fun to be there to celebrate!
