Notecard and Mini Treat Bag for the Catalog Kickoff

As you may know, the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set is one of my very favorite things in the whole catalog! So I knew we had to use it last week at the Catalog Kickoff. Here is a closeup of the card:

And here is how they look put together:
I love the peek-a-boo effect with the die cut star! The stamp comes from a new set made to match this favorite die set, You're So Sweet.

Go Wild for Sprinkles of Life

Tomorrow night (Thursday) is my 2015 Catalog Kickoff! All the cards you've been seeing lately will be on display there. The projects we'll be making are a secret! {wink} Even if you haven't RSVP'd, please come and I'll have at least one quick project you can make. Text me in advance, if you can.

This card features the new Designer Series Paper Stack Go Wild. If you love animal prints the way I do, you'll want this paper on your next order! Still loving the Ronald McDonald House benefit set Sprinkles of Life, along with the matching Tree Builder Punch. For every Sprinkles of Life set sold, Stampin Up will donate $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

I'm not so much a "bling" girl as I am an office supply junkie! The new Project Life Paper Clips Thinlits were a "must-have" and on my first order. I love the way they look with glimmer paper here, but also with Designer Series Papers or cardstock.

I love this summery, fun card! What I love even more is that the idea and all the products needed came in my June Paper Pumpkin.

Meet Cucumber Crush



The new In Color Cucumber Crush just makes me think of summer! What a great, fresh addition to our greens family.

This card features more of the Cherry on Top DSP stack. Don't you love those little candles?

I added a few little banners to the sentiment from Perfect Pennants by punching some Gold Foil, Bermuda Bay, and a scrap of Cherry on Top DSP. The gold metallic clothespin holds a few Bermuda Bay sequins to add to the sparkle!

May Paper Pumpkin birthday cards


My June Paper Pumpkin has shipped, and I can't wait to play with it! Today I'm sharing a couple projects I made with the May kit! This project uses the stamps, but my own inks, papers, and accessories. Those Paper Pumpkin stamps are always useful, trendy, and fun!


Same layout, totally different card! I love that burlap trim!

A CASE of Thanks



The pretty striped paper is from the In Color Envelope Paper--a great new product you'll love. It makes lovely envelopes with the Envelope Punch Board, but it's also great for cards!

The tree is made from the new Tree Builder Punch. It has so many great shapes, and this card features just two of them. I'll be showing you more here and on Facebook. The sentiment comes from the Sprinkles of Life set--this year's Ronald McDonald House set. Together they make easy cards and projects you'll love. And for every Sprinkles of Life set sold, Stampin Up will donate $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities!

Don't forget you can earn a FREE Catalog Bonus Pack for every order $40 or more that you place using the Host Code R4KJVSH3. Offer good through June 27. See this post to get all the details!

This card was inspired by Mary Fish. I love her clean and simple style!

Celebrate Balloons!


My Balloon Framelits have been sitting on my desk for an embarrassingly long time, waiting for me to be inspired. Last week, it finally happened! This isn't a complicated card, by any means, but I quite like it. I chose two prints from the Cherry on Top DSP stack, then created the other pattern with the new Tip Top Taupe cardstock and ink, with the Stripes mask. I like the contrast! I couldn't capture it in the photo, but I turned over the balloons and burnished them with a stylus. They have a lot of dimension in real life.

Paper Pumpkin Deal Ends Today!

The May Paper Pumpkin kit was called "Birthday Bundle." It has been one of my favorites! I've actually made up all the cards and most of the bags, which is unusual for me. I'm always one for "saving some for later in case I need them." Are you like that? Anyway, THIS kit, I decided I needed all made up right now!

The photo shows the projects the kits are designed for, but of course, we can make the supplies into anything we like! I'll be showing more ideas here and on my Facebook page,  but today I want to let you know about the Paper Pumpkin promotion that ends tonight!

If you'd like to get 2 months of Paper Pumpkin kits at half off (and seriously, who wouldn't?), click here to go to the Paper Pumpkin website.
Create your account, and then enter the promo code SAVE50. If you aren't a new customer and have questions about this promo, please contact me! Remember, the promotion ends tonight, so don't wait!

Here's the video from the May kit, showing lots of bonus ideas!

Introducing Mint Macaron

 Mint Macaron--not macaroon, macaron! (You can click the words to see the difference.)

It's a minty green--fresh and spring-like, also great as a neutral background! Those of you still missing Sage Shadow will be thrilled with the introduction of Mint Macaron. You must promise to pronounce it correctly, though. {wink}

I used my fallback, the beautiful Butterflies Thinlits, to make this delicate card. The sentiment is from one of my favorite sets in the catalog--Sprinkles of Life! It's the Ronald McDonald House set this year, so for every set I sell, Stampin Up will donate $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities! Win, win, non? (See how I stuck a little more French in there, so the macaron wouldn't feel lonely?) There is a coordinating punch, but we'll get to that later. Today we celebrate Mint Macaron!

The Designer Series Paper you see on the layered butterfly is from the new Envelope Paper: In Color 2015 set. It's a fun, thinner DSP that makes fabulous envelopes, as well as gorgeous butterflies.

Stamps: Sprinkles of Life, Dotty Angles
Paper: Mint Macaron, Basic Gray, Whisper White, In Color Envelope Paper
Ink: Mint Macaron
Accessories: Butterflies Thinlits, paper piercer, Basic Gray Twine

Introducing Tip Top Taupe!


The new 2015-16 Catalog is live! Click the photo of it in the sidebar -------------> to see the pdf, or scroll down to the Shop Now button -------------->  and browse it in my online store!

I thought it would be fun to show you the new In Colors. Of course, there is no such thing as a "new" color, but tints and shades and all that technical stuff can make a color seem fresh and bright and trendy! Stampin Up chooses the In Colors based on the Pantone projections for hot new colors--the ones you see in home decor, clothing, paper supplies, and more.

Today's focus is Tip Top Taupe. It is featured in the fun new Designer Series Paper Stack "Cherry on Top," just to make it easier to love. I really think we will love this Taupe, as it goes with everything and makes a great neutral! I'm still mourning the retirement of Baked Brown Sugar, and Tip Top Taupe is helping to console me.

Stamps: Bravo
Paper: Tip Top Taupe, Soft Sky, Cucumber Crush, Bermuda Bay, Gold Foil, Cherry on Top DSP Stack
Ink: Tip Top Taupe
Accessories: Stars Confetti Punch, Gold 1/8" ribbon
