This stamp set is called "For the Bride". When the new catalogue comes out, (which is Wednesday July 1 by the way) it will be on the dormant list. That means that it will still be available for purchase but will not be pictured in the catalogue.
The Mellow Moss base and the Large Whisper White panel are textured cardstock - that stuff looks so elegant! The So Saffron is regular cardstock. I used the eyelet edge punch and layered it for a more delicate look. The image is stamped using the Baby Wipe Technique with So Saffron and Mellow Moss. The taffeta ribbon is held in place with a flower brad. The senitment is also from the same set.

Here I am uploading this late again! I've been so busy getting things ready for the new catalogue release! Only 6 more days!!! This card is a teaser because it features one of the sets from the New Catalogue called "Autumn Days". It's so beautiful I gasped when I saw it the first time!! (ya, I know I'm a nerd hehe). I also used Baroque Motifs, Cardinal Christmas and another new one - a hostess Level 2 set called Christmas Punch. The Movers and Shapers die (Curly label) with a new magnetic inset made the card with the window in it. There are 4 new dies for the base and they match punches - the cutout is just a little larger than the punch - layers so nice!! I used Stampin' Write Markers to colour the pine cones and needles and Chocolate Chip, More Mustard and Versamark inks. I also used Irridescent Ice embossing powder on the flourish from Baroque Motifs. I finished the card with a piece of grosgrain ribbon (it says it's Always Artichoke but it matches Old Olive better). The cardstock is More Mustard, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White.
The first picture is the outside of the card and the next one is the inside. You can see a bit of an edge from the inside in the first photo but that's just because of the way I had to take it! Sorry I see the colours are a bit off - I don't have this photo editing down pat yet!

This card is made with a stamp set from the new catalogue (coming out in July). It's a level 3 Hostess set called "Kind and Caring Thoughts". I just love it! This card base is Regal Rose (I know another pink card! What can I say, I like pink!!). I used Whisper White and stamped the images in Regal Rose and Old Olive. Then I stamped the Greeting on a piece of Velum Paper and embossed it with gold embossing powder. The Velum is attached over top of the Whisper White with Rose Red brads (from the Rich Regal collection). I hope you like this new set as much as I do!
