More Friends Never Fade

This stamp set is so much fun! I'm surprised at how many different looking cards you can create from one simple set! For this card I started with Pear Pizzazz card stock (great new in color!) for the base. I stamped the floral image from the Friends Never Fade set with Early Espresso on Crumb Cake Card stock. I don't usually make such a bold pattern; I tend to do more tone-on-tone backgrounds but I love how this looks! To add a little detail, I added a strip of white punched out with the scallop trim border punch.

I colored the main image with markers (concord crush and pear pizzazz in the center) and stamped it on Whisper White. Frame it with some Early Espresso Card stock and add some Vanilla taffeta ribbon and it's done! Easy and pretty!

Friends Never Fade Thank you

Another fun color combo using the new colors! This card uses the new Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade and Early Espresso for a fun color combo. For the main image, I used markers to ink up the floral stamp from the Friends Never Fade stamp set to give it the multi-colored effect. I think this stamp is really beautiful!

The "thank you" sentiment is from the level one hostess set, Because I Care.
This card was really simple and fun to make!

3D Flower and New Colors!

I've been playing a bit with the new colors and I have to say I LOVE THEM! This card uses the new Cherry Cobbler along with Early Espresso and Crumb Cake. It creates such a en elegant color combo, don't you think? The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler. I stamped the patterned piece by using the stamp from the set Friends never Fade in all three colors that I just mentioned. Then I framed it with Crumb Cake Card stock that I had punched along one side with using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.

Love the flower on this card? I'm going to show you how to make it at my 3D flowers class. The class is on July 29th and costs $12 to make 4 projects using 3D flowers just like this one. Let me know if you'd like to attend.

Great Catalog Party!

Just wanted to say thanks again to everyone who stopped by my New Catalog Party to drool over the new catalog with me! It was great to see all of you!

If you missed it, here are some highlights:

Everyone received a fun water bottle as a thank-you for coming. I used the new Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper to make the wraps for the bottles and the thank you is from the stamp set With All my Heart. Do you like my bucket? I found the plain white bucket and personalized it using chocolate chip D├ęcor Elements and my Big shot. The letters are from the Billboard die.

Then, to entice everyone to book a party I made this awesome booking cake:

Each piece has chocolate inside (of course) as well as a prize for booking the workshop. To create this cake, I used Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip card stock for the pieces and then for the flowers, I used the Island Floral Big Shot die. It was a bit of work to make but I love how it tuned out....super fun! This would be great to make for a bridal shower or other type of could change the flowers to roses to make it more elegant.

Here is a top view:

I also had "Survival Kits" for those who picked up their new catalogs:

And, of course, Make-and-takes. Here's the Card we made:

This card uses the new Greenhouse Gala Designer paper again. I love this paper! The card uses two the new colors, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzaz along with Pumpkin Pie. The stamp set is also a new one, It's called Friends Never Fade. This set is very versatile and I'll be showing you more cards made with it soon! We also used the new 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Daffodil Delight. This ribbon is really cool, I love the white edge on it and it comes in 13 colors! I'm going to be doing a sampler with it this month, so let me know if you'd like to participate. Check out the post below for details.

Here's the other Make-and-Take everyone got to make:

This is a simple little Hershey Nugget Wrap. It uses all new colors. The red is the new Poppy Parade. Then the ice cream cone (from the set Sweet Scoops in the Summer Mini) is stamped with Peach Parfait, Blushing Bride, and Poppy Parade. Punch it out with the Large Oval Punch and then tie the whole thing together with some 1/8" very vanilla taffeta ribbon.
