Number of Years

This was a fun card to make and another card we made in my Card Class for April. Not a lot of stamping. Thank you to Mary Brown for this card case.

I used the Number of Years stamp set. This set is going forward in the new catalog, yeah! And there is a alphabet stamp set to match. I can hardly wait to get that set, with matching Framelits. I also used the Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper, which I have not shown enough love to. I used the Triple Banner and Balloon Punches, and the Stars Framelits. Here are the dimensions:
4 1/4" x 8 1/2" Pacific Point cardstock
2" x 5" Yellow with the white Polka Dots
1" x 4" Big Polka Dots
1/4" x 5 1/2" Pool Party
3 1/2" x 3 1/2" Tangerine Tango for the star
Scrap for the Balloon
Scrap of the Daffodil Delight for the number
Are you wondering why I picked the #7? Well my grandson turned 7 in March, so I thought that was a good number to pick.

I finished off the balloon with 2 of the It's My Party Enamel Dots and some White Baker's Twine. The sentiment was stamped with Archival Black Ink.

You're Just the Sweetest!

This was another card we made in my card class in April. I also made a bunch of these for OnStage 2016. Thank you to Erica Cerwin, I totally cased you girl!

It was genius to use the pear as a strawberry, just turn it upside down. I fussy cut the "strawberry" and leaves. These are easy shapes to cut out, you can do it! I cut the while I watched TV with my husband. This stamp set is on the retirement list, so, get it while you can! Just sayin'.........
Used the Triple Banner Punch for the sentiment. Watermelon Wonder is the perfect color for strawberries and Cucumber Crush for limes.

The strips of Crumb Cake cardstock are 1/2" x 6". Here is a tutorial on how I did the weaving. Make sure you don't put your strips all the way up against where the Fast Fuse was used as you will cut that part off.

Thanks for Being You!

This is one of the cards we did in my Card Class this month. I saw something similar on Pinterest. Many of these products are retiring at the end of May.
The Decorative Mask I used is the Dots and Stripes. I used stick notes to mask off the part I DIDN'T want colored. I started at the bottom with Wisteria Wonder, then moved to Perfect Plum and finishing with Elegant Eggplant, by using a Sponge Dauber. Keeping with the "circle" theme, I embossed with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder,
(1" x 4 1/4"). Then I cut out a strip of Elegant Eggplant and die cut using the Striped Scallop Thinlits and glued it to the back of the embossed dots. Sadly all of these products are on the retirement list.
The Vellum was stamped with Versamark and embossed with White Embossing Powder. Are you wondering how I adhered the Vellum? See where the Button and Rhinestone are? There is a Glue Dot under them. Holds the Vellum perfectly and you can't see it. Win, Win! I finished off with a Linen Thread bow for the Button and a few more Rhinestones.

These are the three colors I used:

I appreciate you using the Hostess Code. I try and send a small little something with my Thank you cards.

Stampin' Up! Only Challenge

Yep, its that time again. You can play along too, http://suochallenges.com/. The theme this week is Congratulations (Including Graduations). Can't wait to see what you come up with.

I have a little story about my card......While in Salt Lake week before last week, I met a lovely young lady at the Brighton Store, Tori. Tori commented on my bag tag and said she had been thinking about signing up to be a demo, but just had no time right now as she was graduating from college in a couple of weeks. I told her Paper Pumpkin would be perfect for her and she agreed. She rang up my purchase and we continued to chat. I was telling Patty, and she said, send her a kit! Why didn't I think of that? So I sent her a kit last week along with this graduation card.

I used the stamps and kit from the March Paper Pumpkin Kit to make her card. Since I  didn't have any graduation stamps this kit was perfect. The only thing I added was the 2 doilies and the punched Itty Bitty Flowers. So, even though this kit wasn't designed to make this card, I was able to change it up to suit what I needed. Love that about Paper Pumpkin.

So I hope you play along with this weeks Challenge.

Do You Want a New Catalog?

Isn't this cover beautiful? Such beautiful colors and check out that Mason Jar Die, OMG my favorite bundle in the catalog.

Have you seen the new In Colors?

Total happiness if you ask me! Now you might wonder how I got these new colors so early? Well, if you attended the OnStage 2016 event in Salt Lake last week we got to pre-pre order. Yep, you read that right. One of the perks for going to Stampin' Up! events. This time we received the new catalog....before everyone else, yahooo and got to do a pre-order before the actual pre-order begins on May 3rd. I haven't had time to really play with all my new goodies, but soon.

So as I ramble on, do you want a new catalog? Well, if you've purchased from me in the last 6 months I will send you (or you can pick up) a catalog for FREE! If you don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and would like one, I would only ask that you pay for shipping, $6. Email me at: cindee@pacbell.net. We will be ordering soon and I want to make sure I have enough, so let me know!

I will be having a New Catalog Launch Party on June 4th, 1-4pm. More details to follow.
