Sneak Peek from the NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog 2017-2018

I thought that I would share a quick and cute sneak peek from the new Stampin' Up Annual Catalog.

This card was made with the Birthday Delivery Bundle. This is a darling suite, perfect for any birthday celebration.

The stamps are from the Birthday Delivery stamp set and the designer paper, is called Birthday Memories. Such a darling, vintage birthday girl image.

I used the 3/4" circle punch to punch out a little cupcake from the same designer paper and popped in onto the front of the card with a dimensional. A tiny pearl tops off the birthday cupcake.

There is so much more to this stamp set and bundle. This is just a very small sampling of whats in store!

I've used a cool color combo on this thank you card. Watermelon Wonder (which is retiring- boo), Flirty Flamingo and Night of Navy are the cardstocks and inks that I chose for this card.

I used the same layout as the Eastern Beauty card that we made at Kim's Card Class a few days ago. I'm kind of liking this layout.

IMG_4603

I cut a delicate white doily in half and scrunched it up under the flirty flamingo, stitched circle. The greeting is stamped in night of navy and punched out with the Classic Label Punch.

IMG_4605

My favorite part about the Eastern Medallion framlits is that this "flower" is dimensional. So very cool.

IMG_4604

A "White Perfect Accent" is a "perfect" center to this medallion flower.

I'm going to miss the watermelon wonder color. Maybe I'll be able use Calypso Coral as a substitute. I'll have to try that next time.

Thanks so much for dropping by.

Until the next time...

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.

We made this beautiful card with the stamps and framelits from the Eastern Palace Suite. This is available during the month of May only, as a Special Bundle purchase. 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?

Here's a closeup of the focal point. I love that the dies can be used in over 45 different combinations.

Here's a cute card made with one of the retiring stamp sets from the 2016-2017 Stampin Up catalog, Always an Adventure. I got this cute idea from a card that I saw on pinterest made by Erica Cerwin. I tweeked it and added a few of my own touches

IMG_4641

I think Debbie was happy with her darling handstamped cards.

IMG_4687

One last card to share today. Its made with the Nailed It stamp set. Simply masculine card in wild wasabi, basic black and crumb cake. Perfect for Fathers Day or that special guys birthday.

IMG_4682

Marjie and Sharen are lending each other a helping hand to complete the final touches on the Nailed It card.

Eastern Palace Suite- It's a flower!

Once again the Eastern Palace bundle amazes me. Especially the Eastern Medallions Thinlits. Not only does this set make gorgeous multiple mediallion designs, but it also can be used to make flowers! In this particular instance, a beautiful sunflower!

I had so much fun with this card. I also used the Eastern Medallions Thinlits to make the leaves of the flower. I cut apart the smaller 5 petaled medallion- making the tiny leaves. I used the die twice in two colors, wild wasabi and always artichoke.

The big sunflower was diecut twice as well. Once in so saffron and once in crushed curry cardstock. I then used a stampin sponge to sponge the edges of the flower with crushed curry ink.

I love how it turned out. What do you think?

IMG_4596

The ribbon is new and will be featured in the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up Annual Catalog, debuting on June 1st.

IMG_4597

The soft suede background is embossed with the Sparkle emboss folder. I think its the perfect backdrop for this lovely sunflower.

Lots of great sentiments in this Eastern Beauty stamp set, and I chose "hello" for this particular card. I stamped it in chocolate chip ink and punched it out with the 1" circle punch.

IMG_4598

I'm excited to make more "flowers" out of this suite, using a variety of spring and summer colors.

IMG_4595

I really don't think I could love the Eastern Palace Suite more than I do now. Who would have thought?

I hope this card has inspired you to think outside the box and create some fun and unusual cards of your own.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up Eastern Palace Suite- Early Release!

First of all, I'm not much of a Medallion stamp set loving person. I mean they are pretty and all, but they just don't appeal much to me.

I thought the same of the new Eastern Palace Suite, when Stampin Up released it early to demonstrators last month. That was until I saw some of the gorgeous, and I mean, gorgeous, samples that the Stampin' Up Artisians had created with it.

Well, that did it for me. So, I had to order it for myself and case some of those great ideas from the cards that the SU Artisians had made. I wanted to share those here with you.

This stamp set and thinlits will be featured in the New 2017-2018 Stampin Up Catalog, However, Stampin' Up is releasing it early to the public, so this suite will be available on May 1st to all of you!

There are two special kits and each of them come with something FREE! I'll be posting that for you as well!

Once I had the Eastern Beauty stamp set and coordinating thinlits actually in my hands, I started making my own creations as well. Those, I will share with you next time. But, for now, here's a sampling of the many uses of this stamp set and thinlits as cased from the amazing Stampin Up Artisians, Miriam van Eyden, Kimberly Van Diepen, Cathy Caine, and Martha Inchley of Canada, in that order.

I'm not sure where I found this idea. But if its you and you see this, please let me know so I can give credit. I love this ombre' look!
