Beautiful Bouquet Anniversary Card

I’ve enjoyed a small amount of creative time using new stamp sets, new colors, and new accessories from Stampin’ Up!  It’s always an exciting time of year when the new goodies start arriving!  This is the first of 3 cards for my June Stamp Club.  It’s no surprise that I’m drawn to all of the new shades of pink…….my favorite color!  And who can resist a new floral stamp set?  But what I was REALLY…

New In Colors and New Catalog Open House – May 30th

I found a little bit of time to stamp with the new In Color Collection!  These are tiny little 3×3 cards that I whipped up to show off the new colors and the gorgeous lace trim.  The new colors are “growing” on me, and the more I see color combinations using them, the more excited I get. Mark your calendars for my NEW CATALOG OPEN HOUSE and BOGO SALE!  More details will be posted this week,…

Inkin’ up the In Colors…

If you haven’t seen the new In Color Collection for 2014-2016, you will want to take a look!  I took advantage of the little one’s naptime today, and stamped these cards to help show-off the 5 newest colors:  Tangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, and Mossy Meadow.   How about coming to a class that features these In Colors and the gorgeous ribbon that matches? Thursday, July 10th 6:30 p.m. @ Dawn’s House…

Gatefold Card

I was recently inspired when I happened upon a Gatefold Card at THIS BLOG when I was looking for creative inspiration.  I found a new fold that I had not seen before and I was excited to share it with my club ladies last week.  I hope that you will visit LeeAnn’s blog for the full tutorial, but it is WAY easier than it looks.  I’m thrilled to share with you my version, and hope that…
