Party Hearty Birthday Card

I decided to try some new cards with the Party Hearty stamp set....which is still available in the new catalog. I used the Pacific Point cardstock which is back as a regular color (YEAH). I also used the Top Note from the Big Shot and some Pacific Point ribbon.
Also, for those who ordered the paper swap and accessories swap...the first order has gone out. I will order more if I have 4 more people interested! It's a great way to get a lot of new things from the new catalogs to try out.
Happy Stamping!!

Friends Never Fade Stamp Set

I decided to play with one of the new stamp sets....Friends Never Fade. I made a couple of cute cards using this stamp set. I will share one of them today but you have to check back tomorrow to see the other one. The first one I made was using Summer Sun (retired) and Rose Red. I stamped the Friends are Flowers stamp with Rose Red and then embossed using the embossing glitter. It doesn't show up real good in the picture but in person it shows up real good. Then I used the Big Shot to cut out some Flower Burst. I also used the Eyelet Border punch on the designer series paper! I ended up like the color combination but wait until you see the same stamp set with different colors tomorrow......

Triangle Box

Check out this cute little triangle box I made after watching the video on another Stampin Up demonstrators website.... Angie Juda. I thought this was so cute. All you need is a piece of 6 x 3 designer series paper and a piece of ribbon. We are going to make these at our workshop on July 24th. You can put some little chocolates in here as favors if you would like and pick designer series paper to match your theme. So easy!!!

Ornament Punch Flower

I just had to post a picture of this cool card I made using the Ornament Punch that is available in the 2010-2011 New Idea Book & Catalog. The flower is made using 5 of the ornament punches in white paper and I sponged the sides with Apricot Appeal. The green leaves are 2 ornament punches. I must admit I didn't come up with this by myself.....I got it off another fellow demonstrators website.....Connie Babbert. The stem at the bottom was punched out using the Two Step Bird Punch. I just thought this was so neat and had to give it a try myself. Now I can use the Ornament Punch throughout the year and not just at Christmas!!
