Circles of Thanks!

Here we are again and another week has flown by.  This weeks challenge was an easy one for me.  With all the NEW products coming out in the NEW catalog and with some on hand I knew exactly what I was going to use.  So that means you will get another sneak peak of some NEW products!!  So I will not keep you waiting any longer.....

As you can see that I used some NEW cardstock colors?!?  These are all the New In colors.  Picture does them no justice!  You have to see them in person.  I always love the names that Stampin' Up! comes up with!  The names for this set of In Colors are, Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peek a Boo Peach and Sweet Sugar Plum.  These colors are so bright and cheery! I am sure you will love them as well.

For the 2 Circle images that are on the card comes from a NEW Thinlit set call, Swirly Scribbles.  This also comes with a Stamp Set called Swirly Bird coordinates with the thinlits.  How awesome is that!!  The flower and the leaves are also included in this thinlit set.  The grunge that is in the background has come from the Stamp set Swirly Bird.  I used the Sweet Sugar Plum ink and stamped off before stamping on the Whisper White.

If you need a NEW Catalog just let me know and I can get one to you.

Happy Stamping!

Colorful Flower Fair

I am excited this week to give you another sneak peek of some up and coming products in the NEW Catalog, coming out June 1st.

Loving the color combination this week!

As I had said previous, there a few products that you may recognize as new.  The image of the flower on the card is from a new set called "Love & Affection".  You are going to love this set.  The stem is from the set Garden in Bloom, this set is another favorite of mine.

The background is stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge set.  Who doesn't like a little grunge on their cards!!!  I finished the card off with some Linen thread and the word "hello" die cut out of the "Hello You" thinlits.  

Did you notice the embossing on the envelope?
This is a NEW Impressions Folder that will be coming out soon.
It is called "Floral Affections"  Impressions Folder.
This folder is in a package of 2 different Impressions folders.

I hope you are inspired by this card and ready to make your own card with the color challenge this week.  Make sure that you check out the rest of the DOstamper's that are playing along this week.

Everything is Coming up Roses!

Loving this challenge this week!
I bet you can't guess what new product I will be using for this challenge???
Let me give you a hint:  It came out in the Occasions Catalog.

If you guess the Rose Wonder you are correct!!

The best is that is comes in a bundle!!

When you look at the challenge picture it is so springy looking.  I love it!

The great thing about this card is has a little different technique to it.  As shown below, the inside of the card is actually the front of the the card.

The Rose part of the card was done by cutting out a stencil from a Window sheet and then this was used as a mask for water coloring.  For the rose I used Rose Red and the leaves I used Garden Green.  I did my water-coloring with a Aqua Painter.  When doing the coloring you have to make sure that you don't have it really wet.

And of course  you have to add a little bit of sparkle with the Gold Ribbon and the Gold Sequins.

Here is another card just using a Basic Black background.
What a difference just another color makes.

Make sure that you check out the other DOstampers that are in the challenge this week.

Brush of Art

Do I have a treat for you today!!

Not only is this post a DOstampers challenge it is also a

I was so excited to do this weeks challenge so I could use products from the up and coming NEW Catalog.  Ooooo, wait until you see it!!!  You are going to fall in LOVE with sooooo many products.  Stampin' Up! has out done themselves with this catalog.  I wish I could show you all of it...but you are going to have to wait.  SORRY!

What do you think?

Are you wondering what some of these NEW colors are?  Well let me tell you!  The green is called "Emerald Envy" and the pink color is called "Flirty Flamingo".  Both of these colors are some of the new In colors.  I have to be honest, when I first saw the new In colors I wasn't in love with them.  You know how that goes.  But now that I have my hands on them, they are really growing on me.

Did you notice the DSP?  Yes, that comes from a new DSP stack!  I wish I could tell you about everything, but some things just have to wait.  

Make sure that you check out the other DOstampers that are joining in on the challenge this week.

Happy Stamping!

Retired list

It's that time of year again!  Time to say good bye to retiring Stampin' Up! products.  
Things to know:
  • Some items are discounted up to 50% off
  • Many items are only available "while supplies last" - so shop early
  • The Washi Label Punch is already "out of stock"
  • Even though the host/stampin' rewards items are listed as retiring, you'll still need to qualify for them with a $150 or more order (then select them as your Stampin'  Rewards).
  • The list may seem longer than in past years, but remember...the list includes both the Annual AND Occasions Catalogs (new for this year)
  • Shop early to ensure you get your favorites before they are gone!
*Due to high demand for retiring stamps, we'll keep producing retiring stamps until May 22 (but not accessories, which are only while supplies last).

Hues of Blue

This weeks challenge is such a nice and soothing picture.  I wish I were there, on the beach and the warmth!  I live in MN so it is still a little chilly here.

So from the about picture I decided to make a card that was very easy with the colors.

I told you I went easy!!

  • For the flower I took and stamped off before stamping the large flower.  This is stamped in Marina Mist.
  • The 2nd flower is stamped in Pacific Point.
  • Stem is stamped in Old Olive.
  • Did you happen to notice the Rhinestone on the flower???  This is called "Iced Rhinestone".  These just came out in the Occasions Catalog.  LOVE THEM!!
  • Below you will see a complete list of Stampin' Up! products that I used.
I just did this card in my Card Buffet gathering.  They LOVED IT as well.  This card maybe simple, but I think it is elegant as well.

Check out the rest of the DOstampers to see their creations!

SHOP 24/7!!

Happy Stamping!
