Out with the Old....

Ok, I have said it 100 times, I am sure, but I LOVE this Autumn Accent Die for the Big Shot.  I have to say my, fortunately for me, I think my Fall projects will still be awesome, thanks to the NEW "fall like" framelits in the new 2015 - 2016 Annual Catalog.  the framelits Apothecary Accents featured on this card is also retiring at the end of the month.

While I am always sad to see my favorites leave, I am always excited to see how Stampin' Up! keeps their product lines fresh and modern.  If you would like to shop for any of your favorite stamp sets or other products, click HERE.  Don't forget to make something handmade today!!

Retiring Favorites

I have to say I am pretty sad to see the stamp set Postage Due retire at the end of the month.  I have created a lot of "WOW" cards with this stamp set.  This card is more of a vintage style, something I do not normally gravitate to, but I am glad I did on this card.  I hope you get all of the stamp sets you LOVE before they are GONE.  Click Here to shop for Postage Due and any of your other favorites!!

Soft Spring Beauty

Who doesn't LOVE this set called Sheltering Tree?  I believe all of us "hard core" Stampin' Up! stampers have been waiting, patiently I might add, for something half as awesome as the retired Set Branch Out.  I do believe our expectations have been met with this set.  It is definitely a fav of mine and I am soooooooo glad it is in the 2015 - 2016 Annual Catalog. 
Did you know you can color your ribbon with Stampin' Write Markers or Stamp Pads to have any color ribbon you like?  That is what I did here!  I needed some Pink Pirouette ribbon so I colored it with my Pink Pirouette Stampin' Write Marker and  tada!!!  I love it.  I hope your day is filled with some sort of stampin' or creativity!!!

Mother's Day Fun

We made these cute gifts at a recent Mother's Day Class.  The tea box (back left) was CASED from Lyssa Zwoaneks website, click HERE to see the details.  The tea cup in the front was inspired by THIS Pinterest Pin.  Believe it or not...the berry basket on the back right hand side, well, that was actually designed by me :)
We used the soon to be retired Designer Series Paper Painted Blooms.  This class was a lot of fun and thanks to so many talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators, it was easy to put together.  I hope you had a fabulous Mother's Day.

Celebrate Today Technique Fun

I am sooooo glad this stamp set Celebrate Today and the coordinating framelits carried over to the Annual catalog.  Ooops,did I let the cat out of the bag?  Well, it did! The background on this card was made by using the shaving cream technique.  If you have never done this fun technique with Stampin' Up! reinkers, you need to try it NOW.  It is amazing how differently every card project turns out.  The colors we used were Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy.  I hope you enjoy this card, and enjoy the beautiful weather we are expecting along the East Coast.  Click HERE to check out my Stampin' Up! website to buy the items you need to make this awesome card :)
