Sneak Peak--Label Love

As a Stampin' Up demonstrator, I am fortunate to be able to get my hands on a few items from the new catalog early.  This set, "Label Love" was one of them.  Best thing about has a fabulous coordinating punch!   This set comes with 7 awesome greetings which will be great for both my cards and scrapbook pages!  I was able to make several cards in no time w/this set!  Enjoy!

Sneak Peak--Morning Meadow

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  I have a couple of posts this morning...sneak peaks of new stuff from the new catalog set to release on Friday!  I am sooo excited!  Here is a card made with the new hostess stamps set Morning Meadow.  This set features six stamps...a vine w/flowers on it, a flower w/ a coordinating new punch, a label image, a bird and two sentiments (thank you and happy birthday).  I know I will get a lot of good out of this one!  Enjoy!

Masculine Card for Father's Day

I cased this fabulous simple Father's Day card from another SU demo (Marisa Gunn).    I LOVE how simple it is!  Use a square punch to make the banners.  I used Amazing Family and Beyond Plaid stamp sets.  I also used the Print Poetry paper pack, brushed bronze buttons and linen thread.  Colors used were Basic Gray, Gumball Green, Island Indigo, and Midnight Muse.  Fabulous colors!  Enjoy!

Patterned Party Birthday

Patterned Party is one of the birthday stamp sets soon to retire.  I love the banner in this stamp set.  Here are a couple of recent birthday cards I made with this stamp set (and retired DSP).  Enjoy!

Best of Brides

Best of Brides and Babies is the new Best of 25 years stamp set for May.  It includes 5 stamps (2 wedding, one anniversary, and two baby).  This is simple wedding card.  I used the 5/8" flower trip (LOVE THIS!).  The flower trim is only available until the end of May, so be sure to get yours before then!  I also used the scallop trim corner punch and scalloped edge punch.  The paper is Pretty in Pink and is soon to be retired.  Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Photopolymer Style!

OK, I can't pronounce it...Photopolymer...but I really enjoyed using the new stamp set made out of this material.  SU is introducing a new line of photopolymer stamps for a clear stamping option.  This set Designer Type Photopolymer includes 57 pieces!  And it sells for only $13.95.  The possibilities are endless with this fun set.  I love it for making birthday cards.  It's so easy to personalize a birthday card by stamping a person's name on it (which I did on my son's birthday card).  This card is pretty generic and would work for anyone.  I used the Brights DSP, the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Decorative Label Punch for the my border, white baker's twine, Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Merry Minis Punch Pack (the star).   Enjoy!!!

A Round Array Happy Birthday!

Stampin' up recently gave us our first sneak peak at the new 2013-2014 annual catalog with A Round Array!  It is currently available in a bundle package with the new coordinating 7/8" scallop circle punch for 15% off.  The offer ends May 30, 2013.  It's  a fun stamp set with 8 cute stamps that suit all different occasions.  Grab it while you can on sale!  I used the new Designer Type Photopolymer Stamp set to stamp my arrow and then I just simply cut it out.  Other products used include:  The Brights DSP pack, Essentials stamp set (available in the Spring Catalog), and the fabulous Itty Bitty Punch Pack (I use it all the time).  Oh, I also used the 1/4" stitched grosgrain ribbon in Daffodil Delight.  Enjoy!
