This Little Piggy- Cute, New Catalog stamp set

I want to share another piggy card- just because I love it so much! The set is called "This Little Piggy" and its so super cute. I don't know how anyone could not love this little bugger.

I love the happy skip that this little piggy has. Isn't she cute?

This is a very pretty in pink, piggy card. Say that 3 times fast! I used the Sparkle emboss folder for the melon mambo strip down the middle and framed it in basic black cardstock, along with the pink pirouette for the card base.

I also used shimmery white cardstock to stamp the pig on, because it holds up to watercoloring really well. The Stitched Shapes framelits was used to cut out the square.

Such a happy card, perfect for a "happy mail" day.

Hope you are having a happy day too.

Thanks for visiting!

Until the next time...

Sneak Peek- This Little Piggy- So cute!

Ok, so I thought I would share a sneak peek of a new stamp set featured in the upcoming 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. I know everyone is patiently waiting for the catalog to go live on JUNE 1st! Many of you now have the amazing catalog in your hot little hands now and I know everyone is anxious to order.

If you don't have a catalog, and don't have a demonstrator- email me at kjoyink@me.com (or click on the email link on the sidebar) and we can set you up with a NEW catalog.

I'm going to share one of the cards I made for a demonstrator swap. I loved making these for all my demonstrator friends.

This set is soooo adorable and if you like little piggies, well you are going to be delighted with this darling stamp set. Its called "This Little Piggy."

I started by using shimmery white cardstock and water coloring with an aqua painter and the ink on the lids of the ink pads.

I think this little piggy was rolling in the mud..

I framed the piggy inside a Stitched Shape Framelit circle. Isn't this little pig adorable?

Card Class - Featuring Eastern Palace Suite

I actually remembered to take "people" pictures at class this time. Well, truth be told, Heather and Sharon reminded me or I would have missed the opportunity again.

Most everyone had finished and left, but there were a few ladies still stamping, chatting and looking over the long, 10 page retired list, trying to pick out the last "must haves" of the current catalog.

Sharon and Heather trying to decide what they cannot live without, before its gone forever.

This card uses both the Eastern Beauty stamp set and Eastern Medallion framelits. Check out the new Lemon Lime Twist "In Color." Isn't it gorgeous?

New Stamp Set Sneak Peek & #1 Stampers Meeting Peeks!

My #1 Stampers team meeting was a few days ago. I always look forward to these get togethers with all the amazing and fun women on my team. We meet, chat, stamp, swap and eat. What could be better than that?

This month, my friend Kris Benkeser volunteered to do a demonstration on little girl dress up cards. Kris used the Layering Circle and Layering oval framelits as well as the New Stitched Shapes framelits, to design these sweet dresses.They were so adorable. I have a photo, but its not the best. Trust me these are so much cuter in person.

IMG_4450

It was Kris's first time ever to do a demonstration. She did an amazing job!

IMG_4471

Here's two more:

IMG_4451

 We had so many great swaps as well as a few great make n takes and a NEW "In Color" book mark chart that we created that night.

Here's a look at the oh so pretty make n take designed by Kathy Sullivan. She used the Timeless Textures stamp set on this card, with some dazzling diamonds glitter applied to the middle of the flowers to sparkle it up.

IMG_4470

So, two of the Make n Takes that I designed were made with new stamp sets that will be debuted in the NEW Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Catalog! I will share one of them with you now. This card is made with the Eastern Palace stamp set suite. And I have some good news for you.... It will be available for Pre Order on May 1st! So, you will be able to get it before the new catalog is released in June! Whoo HOO!

IMG_4487

Talk about a gorgeous set! Not only is it gorgeous, but it has so many stamps and dies, that the possibilities are endless! Did you notice a new color? Yes, its one of the new "In Colors" - Fresh Fig!

IMG_4492

Ok, I'm going to show you some display boards from my recent Stampin' Up! trip to Virginia. These are some of the actual stamped images and dies in the suite. I will be sending out ordering info in 5 more days!

Bonus Card- Cool Treats

This was the Bonus Card at my most recent Card Class last week. Its so colorful and fun, with lots and lots of embellishments.

I'm pretty sure this was everyone's favorite card of the night and almost everyone had to purchase the stamp set and/or all the matching Tasty Treat accessories!

This is one of my absolute favorite stamp sets in the Occasions catalog. I got this card idea and layout from Patty Bennett. She shared it on Instagram and I immediately had to make it!

What do you think? Do you like it as much as we all do? There's a lot going on, like sprinkles and washi and designer paper, but its all so fun and super colorful!

IMG_3978

Here's the inside... To make this fold, I cut a piece of whisper white at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" then folded it in half and cut 1" off the front flap of the card. Super easy. The banner is a 2" piece of pool party cardstock and I used the Triple Banner punch to make the "tail."

IMG_3980

Here's a close up of all the details. I love all the special embellishments that coordinate with the Cool Treats stamp set! The detail on the cone as well as the ice cream scoops were made with the coordinating, Frozen Treats dies.

IMG_3979

I hope you enjoyed this fun, colorful, textured, amazingly embellished ice cream card. I thank Patty for the inspiration as well!

I appreciate you stopping by today.

Until the next time...
