Way To Go! I think You're GREAT! Top 2 in Sales

My top 2 Gals in Sales for April got one of these cards and a little something from me. I love this new stamp set called, I Think You're Great! Perfect sentiment to let my gals know that they really are GREAT!

Love the new Lace in all of the new In Colors. So Soft and easy to tie a bow or knot.


This one uses Watermelon Wonder. One of the new In colors.

Its hard to see, but I embossed a bunch of sentiments from the Bravo Stamp set with clear embossing powder. Bravo is another set that has great sentiments. What I did was use the largest block, (block F), and put all the sentiments on at once, then stamp (sorry no photo). That way you can line them up exactly as you want them and you only have to do it once, instead of each one.

 
For this card I used Mint Macraron and Tip Top Taupe.








Did you know? When embossing using an embossing folder that you should put the folded side in first.  That takes pressure off the fold and you don't get the marks on your cardstock if you do it that way. Just line the folded edge of your cardstock up with the edge of the embossing folder
Thank you to LeeAnn Greff for this fabulous card and tip. She made her cards into graduation cards.

Chalkboard Easel Card,Decorative Punch Makes it Easy!

I love these cards. You can see the other ones I did HERE! This was my card for the Shoebox Swap. I used the Woodgrain Embossing Folder. To get the color I took my Early Espresso Ink pad and rubbed it on the side WITHOUT the Stampin' Up! Logo. Add your cardstock and run it through. You get the color mostly on the "veins".
We stamped on the Chalkboard Paper (sadly it isn't being carried forward in the new catalog), with White Craft Ink and Embossed with clear Embossing Powder. You could also use Versamark Ink to emboss. The stamp set is Balloon Bash, it didn't make it into the new catalog either.....insert sad face. I took the 1/2" circle punch and took off each corner. Makes it look more like a sign. And yes, we fussy cut the balloons. It didn't take too long to cut them out, really! You can do it!

Tap Tap Tap Shoebox Swap

This is Lisa Rhine's card. Lisa told us that she had been hoarding this paper, its from the Confetti Celebration. She said its going to be discontinued soon, better use it up! Do you do that too? I know I save the paper I really like for something special, and then end up not using it.......
I love how we used one of the Work of Art stamps to put the Pistachio Pudding color on the typewriter. So clever! Thanks Lisa!

Edited to add:
Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Notepads":

These are cute but I'm new at things like this and several times you used some initials in the instructions that I'm not familiar with and don't know what they mean. So please tell me what "dsp" means. Thanks
 

DSP is Designer Series Paper. I don't know who left this message, but I wasn't able to contact her directly because she signed it Anonymous.

Birthday Bash Shoebox Swap


 This is Sharon Howard's design.
 Sharon cut 3/4" x 4" of the Birthday Bash Designer Series paper and we wove the pieces for out focal point. We used the Celebrate Today Bundle ( stamp and Framelits). The Bermuda Bay (one of my favorite colors right now) piece is embossed with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder, (another favorite).
This was a fun card to put together! Sharon did all the die cutting for us. Thanks Sharon!

Butterfly Basics Shoebox Swap! Isn't it Pretty?

A couple of weeks ago, some of my Stampin' Friends came over. We went to lunch then stamped the rest of the afternoon. We did a shoebox swap. Everyone designed a card, and brought enough supplies so everyone could make their card. This card was designed by Patty Bennett. The "gold" butterfly just makes the card, don't you think?
Do you see all the gold accents? This is such an elegant card, but also very easy. I guess you could say its a "WOW" card.

Only 2 more weeks, both of the current catalogs will just be a memory......A lot of products from the Occasions Catalog is NOT being carried forward. So, get the items while you can...just sayin'........

Who Says Chocolate Isn't the BEST Gift?

I have the best customers. They not only support me in my Stampin' Business, but sometimes they bring me gifts. Last week-end, Dawne M. brought me this box of yummy chocolates.

Dawne used to have her own business that did custom chocolate orders. Her daughter is having a Engagement Party and the theme is Nautical. She is putting these claim shells filled with more chocolate shells into a cello bag with a bag topper. I gave her some ideas for the bag topper.  Can you imagine what she will do for the Bridal Shower and the Wedding......oh my! Dawne is AMAZING! 
This is the inside. The chocolate is "to die for", so yummy! Its so pretty, I almost hate to eat it..........in fact I had to take it downstairs so I wouldn't eat the whole thing......
Here is a close up of all the shells inside the big shell.

Thank you Dawne!

Introducing the New 2015 In Colors! Which One is Your Favorite?

I think these will make excellent Fall Colors. My favorites are, Mint Macraron and Tip Top Taupe. The other colors are growing on me......
This is the Mint Macaron. I used the new stamp set, You've Got This. Its my favorite from the stamps we could pre-order.
Here is the Tip Top Taupe. I used Sahara Sand for the background on all of the cards.
Delightful Dijon, reminds me of More Mustard.
Watermelon Wonder.
Cucumber Crush.
What do you think of this lace ribbon? Its so soft and easy to work with. I love it!

I know you still have 3 weeks until you can order all these wonderful products, but I just couldn't wait to share. I'm ready for some new stuff to play with too......
