This first card features one of the new 2011-2013 In Colors - Island Indigo (and 2010-2012 In Color, Pear Pizzazz). I absolutely LOVE this color!! Plus, just saying the name makes me happy :). I guess because it transports me to some exotic locale!! The greeting is from the new Delightful Dozen stamp set - this is the new, very versatile, something for all-occasions stamp set. I love all of the stamps in this set and will use it for years and many occassions to come! I also used the new Island Indigo 3/8" Ruffled ribbon - this ribbon is awesome!! I am offering a ribbon share (where you get 2 yards each of all 5 new In Colors) for $13.00. Please let me know if you'd like to participate in this ribbon share! One last note - I used the Embosnew Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder as well - adds a nice touch, don't you think?
This next card features a few products from the Summer Mini.... Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine and the Sail Away individual stamp. I really loved how this card captured the feel of summer!! The sentiment is from the Bring of the Cake stamp set - this set features 13 different ways to say Happy Birthday!! A must-have stamp set in my book!! Finally, I used my new Color Spritzer to add a little "texture" to my crumb cake card stock - I know it's a little hard to see in this picture, but it sure was fun squeezing that little bulb and seeing the ink fly!!
The last card we made featured the new 2011-2013 In Color, Lucky Limeade (we also used Rich Razzleberry) and the new stamp set Creative Elements - the swirls and curls in this set (as well as the flowers and butterfly) are gorgeous!! We also ran our card stock through the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder after we stamped it - I just love this technique!! The sentiment is also from the Bring on the Cake stamp set. I am also in love with the Designer buttons - I think I've now bought them in all collections (so you might seem them again sometime soon)!!
I also want to thank all of my friends and customers for coming to my first ever New Catalog Kickoff and Buy 1, Get 1 Free Event!! I had a lot of fun planning this event and was glad to have so many of you stop by to see what it was all about!! I promise to have even more stamp sets to choose from next year!! I couldn't quite part with too many of them this year, but now I have all year long to use and enjoy them!! And then I'll be ready to offer them to you next year!!
Thanks for all of your support!!
