2013 Spring Catalog

Pink Jeans for YOU!

100_9609
.
How fun is this???  A cute little jean pocket card!  I got this idea from my friend LeeAnn Greff - I just ran into her in Fiji last week and told her I was using it!!!  She giggled and said it wasn't her original - but I want to give her credit anyways!
.
The Primrose Petals Core-dinations cardstock is just perfect for that "jean effect!"  I sanded it a little to make it look like jean material.
.
I'm so sad to see the Two-Tag Die & Elegant Lines embossing folder retiring - boy - I've had some serious fun with both of these items.  As of tonight - they are both still available!!!  I used the Top Note die for the pocket and a white gel pen for the lines - cutie patootie!
.
This will be one of the fun cards we'll be making at my Technique Tuesday class tomorrow night (5/7) at 6:30 at Trinity in Menasha!  I have some extras cut - so stop on in for some stampin' fun!  We'll also be making a super cute punch card and a cool technique called White Wash.  The class is $5 with a minimum $15 order or FREE with a $40 order.

I love LOBSTER!!!!

100_9210

What a GREAT masculine card!!!  I know alot of stampers have trouble coming up with cards for the men in their life....it's always been easy for me...so I had to share this one with you!  This stamp set - BY THE TIDE - is a MUST HAVE....great for man cards and women too.  You can also use soft colors for babies cards!!!

I love when I start playing with a new stamp set and creations just come easy.  That's the way I feel about BY THE TIDE.

I used Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Night of Navy for the cardstock & ink. I know the lighting in this photo makes the blue look different - but trust me - it's Night of Navy.  I stamped my lobster dude with Black StazOn and then used an Aqua Painter to color it in with Cherry Cobbler ink...I just squished my ink pad lid and used the ink for that.

Are you loving that little anchor???  It comes on the Happy Whale Clearlits Die (shown below).  Now for the Soda Pop Tops - they are the funnest!!!!  (is that a word?)  You put them in between your cutting plates and open both tabs...just run them right through that big boy (Big Shot) and they look like this:
100_9212
The bottom of the pop tops are a little concave - so you want to attach them with a Dimensional.  And a little about the Natural Trim - it is a perfect embellishment to accompany the pop tops - just fray the ends and it reminds me of netting!

Pinwheels make me SMILE

100_9208

I don't know what it is about pinwheels - but they always make me smile.  And of course new babies do that too!  Here's a soft card just perfect to welcome a new life into the world...or congratulate an expectant mom at her baby shower or as a birthday card for that bundle of joy in your life.

This card came to me in a swap - I changed a couple little things and had to add that adorable pinwheel.  The tiny brads are pefect for the center. This little die (shown below) is only $4.95 - that's a pretty small price to add so much joy to my card!  And the Cloudy Day embossing folder is just precious.

I used So Saffron cardstock and Tea for Two Designer Series Paper.  The white scalloped edge comes from the Tasteful Trim Bigz Die - I've used this die on so many cards and scrapbooking pages - it's perfect for them - the strips are 12" long!!!  It's such a nice embellishment.

I used Pacific Point & Soft Suede ink for the tickets and added a rhinestone jewel to one of them.  The Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon adds that little pop that was needed.
