New Catalog!

Hi Everyone!

Last night I was lucky enough to attend Stampin' Up's Catalog Premier Event and just wanted to share the cover with you.  That's all I'm allowed to share right now, but let me tell you, the catalog is fantastic!  I love all of the new items, it will be very hard to just choose a few new things at a time!  If you look closely at the cover you can see a few of the new items.  Hope you enjoy it!

Hi Everyone,

     Here is another cased Wetlands card.  This time I cased from: Stamps to Die For.  She has quite a few other samples of the Wetlands stamp on that post too.  I'm really loving playing with this set.  It's great to use for both men and women which makes it very versatile.
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Wetlands
Ink: Crumb Cake, Pool Party
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Whisper White

Hi Everyone,
    Ever have a time where you really wanted to stamp, but just couldn't come up with any ideas of your own?  That's where I've been the last few days.  So I'm really thankful for all of the other talented stampers out there sharing their work.  I stamped yesterday using my new Wetlands stamp set by casing a few other stampers.  I stamped this card while watching a video that Brandy Cox made.  You can find it here: Brandy's Cards.  While Brandy used the reinkers to color with, I simply used some of the ink in my stamp pads by pressing the lid to the pad before opening.  Both ways work very well.
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set:  Wetlands
Ink: Stazon Black, Island Indigo, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Garden Green, Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango
Card Stock:  Pool Party, Whisper White, Garden Green
Accessories: 2 way glue, Dazzling Diamond Glitter, Blender Pens

Fringe Scissors

Hi Everyone,
     Stampin' Up's new Fringe Scissors are so fun to play with!  I cased another card and didn't change too much: Constantly Stamping.  She didn't have the Fringe Scissors to use and cut each slit by hand, but I think its much easier with the scissors.  I made a score mark on each color before I started cutting so I knew where to stop cutting to make it even.  It's almost impossible to line it up again if you stop cutting and pull the scissors out.  I've also used the scissors to make grass on this card here:  Soccer Ball.  Call, email or order online if you would like a pair!

Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Sassy Salutations
Ink: Island Indigo
Card Stock: Whisper White, Crisp Cantalope, Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, Pool Party, Pistachio Pudding, Island Indigo
Accessories: Fringe Scissors, 3/4" Chevron Ribbon in Island Indigo

Kind & Cozy

Hi Everyone,
     Here is another sample using the Kind & Cozy set.  This one is my own creation.  To get the background image, I stamped the flowers in Night of Navy before running it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I haven't used these 2 colors together very much before, but I really liked them.

Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Kind & Cozy
Ink: Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight
Card Stock: Night of Navy, Whisper White, and Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Square Lattice Embossing Folder, 2 1/2" Circle Punch
