Okay...this new hostess stamp set has got to be one of my ultimate favorite hostess stamp sets Stampin' Up has ever offered! It is sooo reasonable and easy to get with a workshop or minimal order. I love the new hostess program. You can get anything you want out of the catalog with your hostess dollars! And you can pick out any hostess stamp set (no more levels!). Yeah! This is a card I made and embossed for a friend's birthday in Sept. I think I used Island Indigo and Tempting Turquoise for my colors. I did emboss the butterflies with the new Tempting Turquoise embossing powder and I used dazzling diamonds on my cut out butterfly. Of course I added those precious pearls to my precious butterfly! I made it a while back and really did intend to post it sooner but with 4 kids out for 4 different sports activities this fall my life has turned a bit hectic lately. I am not complaining...I love it...but sometimes it leaves little time for one of my favorite activities...stamping! Enjoy!

Brayer pool party ink onto the textured plate and emboss it onto cardstock. Use the scallop trim border punch to punch out the design on the bottom.
Layer pieces and assemble card. I used the new Spice Cake fabric for the bow and an Antique Brad to finish off the card. Enjoy!

WHO doesn't LOVE OWLS? Not me, I think they are adorable! This owl punch makes the cutest cards, including anniversary. I also used our bird punch to make the vines or branches that the owls are standing on. The sentiment is from the stamp set, "A Word For You". Enjoy! (P.S. I "cased" this card idea from Rebecca Borkoski.)

Easy Events was one of the stamp sets we all received at convention. I really love it because it suits many occasions and I just tend to grab it when I need a card. These two sweet little birds are actually intended for a wedding card but I changed it up into an anniversary card by adding a sentiment from the stamp set A Word For You. Colored my birds in with markers and added a few hearts, some ribbon and presto...I'm finished! Enjoy!

One of my favorite new sets I received at Convention is the new stamp set Easy Events. I can be used for a wide array of events, so it is one stamp set I know I will get a lot of mileage out of. It makes for really quick and easy fun cards that don't take a lot of time, which is something I need these days now that school is back in session and my running to events starts again. Enjoy!
