Notably Ornate and Punch Potpourri

Elegant, classic and vintage....those are the words I use to describe the new stamp set Notably Ornate. I can't wait to use this stamp set to journal on my scrapbook pages. It includes a large box to journal in and a smaller oval-shaped design stamp to write the date in on scrapbook pages, along with the bird and Just Because saying. It is available in clear mount 120561 and wood mount 117098. I also used the Punch Potpourri Level One Hostess Stamp set to stamp the flowers which coordinate with the Boho Blossoms Punch. I have to say SU did a great job of coming up with some fantastic hostess sets in this new catalog. I used the modern label punch, Big Shot Top Note Die Cut and Movers and Shapers Die. Also used Bravo Burgundy, More Mustard, Soft Suede ink and the new Basic Pearls and Rhinestones. Thanks for looking!

Engraved Greetings and Elegant Soiree

Engraved greetings is a nice stamp set for doing really fast, simple cards that look elegant. The set includes two stamps, a birthday one and a thank you one. (It is available in wood mount 117116.) It could be very well used to make masculine cards. I used Elegant Soiree designer series paper (117163) and Very Vanilla ribbon (109071). Espresso ink was used to stamp the image. Enjoy!

Holiday Hoopla

Holiday Hoopla - Clear-Mount Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!
Holiday Hoopla is one of my favorite new Christmas stamp sets, because it is fun and modern. I like the two step stampin' idea of this stamp set. Holiday Hoopla is available in clear mount 120450 and wood mount 116912. The sentiment is from the Many Merry Messages stamp set (wood mount only 116586). I used the new scallop trim border punch (118870) I also used my two way glue pen with dazzling diamonds glitter for the beard. Notice the glimmer brad on the top of Santa's hat...this is a sneak peak from the new fall-winter mini. Gotta love those new glimmer brads! Also used striped ribbon and cherry cobbler ink and cardstock. Enjoy!

Wicked Cool

I love the colors of Halloween. I am so glad SU is keeping Rich Razzleberry and bringing back Tangerine Tango. For this card I used the new Wicked Cool stamp set (118738 wood mount and 120600 clear mount), Sweet and Sour DSP (117390) and the new Bitty Bat Large (119279). I used Rich Razzleberry 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (119957) and the new Basic Rhinestones (119246) for the bat's eyes to give the bats some sparkle and make them stand out. Enjoy!

Bouquet Bunch

This is a nice card to showcase the new scallop rectangle clearlit die (118872). I stamped images from the Bouquet Bunch stamp set (clear mount 120039 and wood mount 118529) from the Summer Mini catalog and watercolored them in with the watercolor crayons and aqua painters. It was easy to line up my images inside of the clear rectangle die before I cut out my scalloped square in the Big Shot. Also used the scallop trim border punch (118402). Sentiment is from Tiny Tags stamp set (wood mount 118091 and clear mount 118592). Thanks for looking!

Flower Girl and New In colors

Okay, I have been working on this layout for a couple of days and I keep getting interrupted by my children. That's okay, because I know I will miss having them around all the time when school starts. I don't know if I am completely done with these pages, but here they are for now. I used Broadsheet Alphabet (clear mount 120585 wood mount 119724) and the Ornate Blossom stamp (117094). I used Greenhouse Gala DSP (117167) again! I do have other new paper packs that I love...I will be getting to them soon. I used the new Blushing Bride 12 x 12 paper for my background. Almost forgot the scallop trim border punch (118402). I stamped Flower Girl with all the new In Colors. Still need to put my daughter's name and date on here. Might die cut some flowers and add them to the pages too. Thanks for looking! I added Floral Fusion die cut flowers (115969) and Swirls & Scribbles (113441).
