Hostess Set Preview

Wings of Friendship Swap OK, here's a sneak peek of one of the new hostess sets and some new In-Colors!  This was my favorite hostess set from the new catalog and it's called Wings of Friendship. 

This card uses the new In-Color Markers (WOO HOO for that) and the In-Colors that I'm showing here are: Bermuda Bay (blue), Melon Mambo (pink), Crushed Curry (yellow) and Dusty Durango (rust).  I've also used Old Olive for the green branch as I find that it accentuates the new In-Colors nicely! 

In case you're wondering, the other two new In-Colors for this Year are Soft Suede (tan/brown) and Rich Razzleberry (grape/purple).  I can tell that we're going to have a lot of fun with the new In-Colors this coming year so be sure to pre-order your catalog from me now and if you live in Colorado, be sure to attend my open house on July 7th!

Great Gift Card Holder

Gift Card Holder Here's a great gift card holder, also a project we made at the meeting in Chicago that I attended.  The button is a die from the big shot but you could also use one of our great Stampin' Up buttons!  This will be a project at an upcoming class so stay tuned or sign up for my newsletter to stay informed of upcoming classes and events!!

Just Jawing Journal

Skully Notebook For those who know me you know that I love to use Stampin' Up's on board journals to make lots of Journals.  In fact, you've probably seen many of them on my website including that cute flamingo one that I made for my friend Jen and I on our Hawaii trip.  Well, here's my latest creation.  I've loved this set and matching designer paper since it was first released and knew that I wanted to make a journal, I just hadn't done it yet.  So, in preparation for my trip to Chicago I started thinking about a design and playing with ideas and this is what I came up with! 

This journal uses the Just Jawing stamp set and coordinating Rockabilly speciality designer series paper.  The paper is retiring but when I checked last there was still some availalble so email me today to order yours!  The glitter is the fine galaxy and fine supernova glitter and is adhered to the jumbo brads and stamped images using our tombo multi-purpose adhesive.

If you'd like to make a similar journal just contact me to order the supplies needed and I'll happily send you my journal instructions as well.  Happy Stamping!

Quilted Card

Quilted Card At the end of May I flew back to Chicago for a day (literally I was there for just over 24 hours) to see some friends and to stamp with my team at my upline's bi-monthly meeting.  One of the cards we made is this awesome quilted card using the Big Shot and the Speciality Parisian breeze paper.  Isn't it great??  Because I like to "recycle" card ideas we're also going to be doing this card at this month's technique class on Monday, June 13th.  If you'd like to learn this fun and easy technique just email me to attend!

Heartfelt Thanks

Heartfelt Thanks  One of the first stamp sets that I owned as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator was Heartfelt Thanks.  It's one of my favorites!  Not only is the sentiment great but it's an easy 2-step stamp.  This month one of the cards that I'm teaching at my workshops is one of my first designs with this set and it's pictured here.  This set is also on the retiring stamp set list for this year.  If you like this set as much as I do then be sure to order it before July 30th because after that it's gone forever!
