Wedding card

I think this set is so classy - it's "Ever After" on page 83 of the spring/summer IB&C. I stamped the image in stazon and coloured it with my SU markers. I used the eyelet border punch and SU Lots of Labels as well as the wide oval punch. The pearls are from the pretty's kit and the ribbon is Bashful Blue Taffeta. Bashful Blue and Whisper White are the cardstock colours I used. The sentiment is stamped in Bashful Blue ink. Oh, ya, I also used the small dots texturz plate in the Big Shot.

Sneak Peak

This is a sneak peak of a stamp set in the Occasions Mini which is coming April 1! The set is called Sense of Time and I just love it!!
In addition to the Sense of Time stamp set I used Celebrate everything, Sanded and Itty Bitty Backgrounds. The colours are Chocolate Chip and Bordering Blue. Those yummy brads are the 5/16" Brads on page 174 in the SU spring/summer IB&C. I also used an antique brass Jumbo eyelet and some hemp that I dyed by running it through my Choc. Chip pad while holding it down with a sponge.
Thanks for stopping by!

For You

This card is for you, yes, you reading my blog. This tweet and cheery card is to thank you for stopping by!
I used my brand new set Cheep Talk - I think it's so cute!! The ink colours are Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise and Old Olive. The cardstock is Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise Pacific Point and Whisper White. I also used the printed Velum from Taste of Textiles. The hardware is a Jumbo Grommet - coming in the new Occasions Mini and a pumpkin pie flower brad. Everything else is available in the Spring/Summer Idea Book and Catalogue 2009.

Speaking of the Catalogue - did I tell you that Stampin' Up! is going to ONE catalogue a year now? There will be 3 minis each lasting 4 months to make sure you get everything that's trendy and hot. Isn't that great news?!! The new catalogue is due in July.

Another Thank you card

Here's the third thank you card I've done for friends. The colours are Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black and Kraft. There's not much stamping here, the main image is Urban Oasis DSP (Designer Series Paper). The focal point is a piece of Soho Designer hardware - it's set like an eyelet, but no hole. The black flower around it was made with the Flower Burst embosslit in the Big Shot. The ribbon is Taffeta Kraft and the sentiment is stamped in Basic Black.
I accidentally made this card 4 1/2" x 5 1/2", so it didn't fit too well in the envelope!!! Oh, well!
I hope she liked it anyway!

I did some shading with markers for this one and took the colour combo from that. Dear Friend is a level one hostess gift that has some pretty flower images. (I coloured them all and will have to upload them sometime - after I make them into cards!) I used the Big Shot texturz plate SU backgrounds #1 for the So Saffron base of the card. The other cardstock colours are Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Cameo coral and Old Olive. I used those colour markers plus Barely Banana, Only Orange and Ruby Red. The sentiment, which is from Trendy Trees is stamped in Cameo Coral. Oh, ya, I almost forgot I used the Eyelet Border and Scallop Edge punches. I'm giving this card to a friend who helped me clean up after club a couple weeks ago (ya, I'm late but I think she won't mind). I hope she likes it!! All products are Stampin' Up! and can be found in the Spring/Summer Idea Book and catalogue 2009.

Trendy Trees

Here's a cute card done with a new set I got. Trendy Trees need a stamp-a-ma-jig to get the placements right (and I still didn't to a perfect job! LOL). I used the Big Shot and the Impressions Plate from SU Backgrounds 1. Then I added little dots where the diamonds touch. The colours on this card are Kiwi Kiss, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie and Close to Cocoa (same colour inks). These colours were a colour challenge on Splitcoast the other day so I had to give it a try - Kinda fallish though don't ya think? The other set I used on this is the Hostess set Darling Dots - I think I'm going to use it more often - it's cute!! I hope my friend likes this card!
