Hooray - New In Colors!


When I first seen these colors I wasn't too excited about them...but now they are really growing on me.  I am loving them!!  They really do go great together.  I think the balance from the softer colors to the bolder ones just balance each other out.  What are your thoughts?

In this card not sure if you noticed but I turned my embossed piece around so that the circles go in instead of popping out.  I like to do this once in a while, it gives the card a whole different look, I think.  The dots were made from the Big Shot and using the Large Polka Dot Impressions folder.

"HOORAY" is from a NEW set called "Confetti Celebration".  You have to check this set out, it is a very festive set!  There are so many different projects you could create with this set.  What am I could do that with all the sets from Stampin' Up!  For the festive looking paper on the card, it comes from the Designer Paper stack called " Playful Palette".  Of course I must always have an embellishment on the card!  Today's embellishment is the NEW Ruched Ribbon. The Ruched ribbon comes in all the new In Colors.  It is so nice to work with!

Butterfly Flurry

This weeks challenge was a little bit more challenging.  There was so many ways you can take this picture and create your project.  I took one aspect of the picture and ran with it.
If you guess Butterflies, you are correct!  What would you have chosen?

This card was inspired by a Stampin' Up! card that I had seen in our Stampin Success Magazine.  I took the layout of the card and then created my version of it.  
I start out by cutting out the beautiful lace piece on the card.  This comes from a NEW thinlit Detailed Floral Lace Thinlit.  This also comes in a bundle with a stamp set called Floral Phrases,  so you can save on both products.  If you haven't seen these yet,  you have to go check them out!!  Gorgeous!

For the tag on the front of the card, I took my Whisper White cardstock and put it in the Decorative Label Punch from the bottom opening to get the curvy edge on each side. I hope this makes sense????  If not let me know and I can take a picture for you.  The pretty butterflies are punched out with the Elegant Butterfly punch and using the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper.  I did punch 3 from the DSP and then stamped one image from the stamp set  Papillon Potpourri stamp set, using Night of Navy ink.   I finished off the card with a little of the Silver Metallic Thread and Rhinestones.

I hope you liked this weeks card?!?  Make sure you go and check out the other DOstampers that are participating in this weeks challenge.

Tickled Pink

I was so excited to get to this weeks challenge.  These color are right up my alley!! And on top of it...I got to use NEW products in the challenge as well.  Cannot get any better then that!!

First off I had to show you the Black Metallic Thread that just came out.  Stampin' Up! still has the Silver and Gold available yet.  This thread is thin, but it gives your projects just enough WOW factor.

Did you happen to notice the background in the above picture?

The background was made by the NEW Detailed Floral Thinlits.  This set of thinlits has 3 Pieces to it.  I cut by Basic Black cardstock at 4 x 5 1/4".  By doing this, it was just a little bit bigger then the thinlits.  This way when I ran it through the Big Shot it came out in 1 Piece.  You can also get 10% Off by ordering the bundle that these thinlits come in.  

The flower was cut from the Botanical Builder Framelits.  I cut out 2 of the smaller flowers and stacked those using a glue dot.  Then I cut 2 of the centers and stacked those using glue.  Once together I added the Black Metallic Thread and a Stampin Dimensional and adhered to the card.

If you haven't taken the time yet to check out the NEW CATALOG, put down what you are doing and grab a drink and check it out!!  You are going to LOVE IT!!

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

Sketch Challenge with a Twist

This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge, but I combined another challenge that I had on my plate as well.

The other challenge that I had on my plate was a little surprise from my upline Dawn O.  She sent me a package with a few items in it and challenged me to use all or some of the items and make a crafty project.  (You could add other supplies if you wanted to)  Below are the supplies that I received.
Doesn't this sound like fun!!  And the items are awesome!
Without further ado.....
Hope you like it!!!

Did you notice the awesome Copper Emboss Powder?  I am falling in love with it!  And just think you can order it now!!!!  The NEW Catalog went live TODAY!  If you haven't checked it out, you have too.  There are so many NEW products. The flower is stamped with Versamark Ink and then I Embossed with the NEW Copper Embossing Powder.  LOVE IT!!  After the embossing I took the Pansy Punch and punced it out.  OH...almost forgot to tell you that there is a stamp set that goes with this punch that I used called "Flower Shop".

For the window part of the card I used the Big Shot and the Tags & Labels Framelits.  The saying is from the stamp set called "Tin of Cards".  This great set did carryover to the NEW catalog.  

Make sure that you check out the other DOstampers that are joining us this week.

Happy Stamping!
