Up - Up and Away!

There are so many NEW and exciting Stampin' Up! products out in the Occasions Catalog.  
And of course I just have to have it all!!!  LOL  
Below I will show you a few of the products that I have been playing around with.

This card was inspired from a card Mary Fish had made. Thank you Mary! I added a little extra and designed my balloon a little different.

Are you wondering how I cut the balloon out so perfect???  Guess what?? Stampin' Up! has come out with a Framelit that cuts them out!!!  How fabulous is that!!  The set is shown below.
Balloon Framelits Dies by Stampin' Up!
But that isn't even the best part!
There is also a stamp set that goes with the framelits!
Can you tell I am just a little excited!
Celebrate Today Photopolymer Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!
You can bundle the Framelits and the Stamp Set and Save 15%.  How great is that!

For the balloon on my card, I cut out 2 balloons.  One in Melon Mambo and the other in Basic Black.  I then took the Basic Black Balloon and punch out the stars with the Star punch for the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  The tail is stamped with another NEW set called "Hello Life".  As shown below.  Once I stamped the "So Sweet" I took a Project Life Journaling Pen and added the little swirl coming down.  The of course I had to add some bling with the Glimmering star.

This stamp set also goes with the NEW Hello Life Project Kit shown below.  I am going to be making this kit this weekend at a stamping play-date.  I will post some pictures next week.

Valentine Picture Challenge

It is that time of year again to tell all the people in your life that they matter and you love them!!
What a better way to do that...then sending a hand crafted card!!

Just love the new Occasions Catalog that just came out!!  If you haven't seen it yet...make sure you go and check it out!  Stampin' Up! once again has out done themselves.  There are so many wonderful new products in the catalog.  I am sure you will find something that you like!!!  

In this DOstampers picture challenge it wasn't hard to figure out which way to take this one.  Of course you have to do a Valentine's card!!  This card is one that I designed for a swap that I was in.  I am falling in love with the NEW Confetti Heart Border Punch.  When you use this punch and put a color underneath it, it makes your project POP!  This punch will be awesome to use in my scrapbooks as well.

I have also used a NEW stamp set called, "Hello Life".  It is a Photopolymer set.  What is even better with this set it is used in a NEW Kit that has come out in the Occasions Catalog.  I will be posting a picture of the finished kit project at the end of this month.  So make sure you come back to check it out.  It is really GREAT!
