Here is a project I did as a make-and-take for my last workshop. You take a 6x6 piece of paper to make this pocket. I used some of the new designer papers for this sample. Then I used the All through the year set to stamp the yellow flower. In the center I used a flat-backed pearl from the "pretties" in the new catalog. I love these pearls they're so cute and easy to use. They attach really easily with a mini glue dot. This little pocket is perfect to put in a treat or gift card!
stamps: all through the year
card stock:Prints designers series paper in so saffron, whisper white, purely pomegranate
ink: so saffron
accessories: Pretties kit, circle punches, glue dots.

I finally got my order of stuff from the new Fall/Winter Stampin' Up catalog! The first thing I had to play with was Moose you. It's such a fun set! I just love the funny little animals! This card is made with the Moose and heart stamps from the set, then layered with chocolate chip paper and stitched using the faux stitching with the white gel pen. I also used staples to attach him. The background is done with the jumbo wheel, Petals, and versamark ink. Isn't he super silly?
This card is made using the same set, this time I used the "stuck on you" porcupines. I stamped the first one with chocolate chip and the second with close to cocoa ink so that they would look as if "stuck" together. Then accented with Vintage brads and framed with creamy caramel card stock. The background is stamped with the Petals jumbo wheel using versamark ink.
This is the last card I made with this set. I used the "such a deer" stamp for this one. I used close to cocoa and chocolate chip markers to stamp the deer and then stamped artichoke colored leaves on the piece of artichoke paper that frames him. I used mellow moss card stock to create the green middle piece and used the faux stitching technique with the gel pen across that. Then I tied white grosgrain ribbon on to accent. The background for this card is creamy caramel card stock stamped with the Petals jumbo roller with versamark ink.

I haven't posted much lately as I've been super busy and I'm anxiously awaiting my first order from the new Fall/Winter catalog. I'm hoping it will be here tomorrow....The UPS tracking number isn't working, of course, so it's a waiting game... Soon I will have some fun new sets and accessories to share!
Meanwhile, here's something new that I haven't shared yet. This is the first card I've made using acetate. I stamped the swirls from Baroque Motifs using Black Staz-On ink on a piece of clear acetate and layered it over a piece of white with a Bordering Blue swirl stamped on it. The black scallop is made using the slit punch. And the flowers are cut out and raised with dimensionals. I finished it off with some blue gingham and the "cherish" stamp. I really love this set!
stamps: Baroque Motifs
inks: Bordering Blue, Basic Black, Black Staz-On
papers: Bordering Blue, Whisper White
accessories: Black Brads, dimensionals, blue gingham ribbon, acetate

Happy Monday! Back to work today, which is always hard. So I thought I'd share this cute card I made using Baroque Motifs (one of my new favorites). I stamped the flourish in River Rock on the white card stock and added some flowers using pomegranate. Then I stamped the two larger flowers and cut them out and layered them on top with black brads in the centers. The one in the upper right is raised using a dimensional dot. The thanks stamped along the bottom is from Everyday Flexible Phrases.
stamps: Baroque Motifs, Everyday Flexible Phrases
inks: purely pomegranate, river rock, brocade blue, black
paper: brocade blue, creamy caramel, not quite navy, whisper white
