Oh boy! Over the past weekend I was able to get the new 2017-18 Annual Catalog early AND order some items!! Well, I got a big box from the UPS man today and whee–fun stuff was inside! I want to show you a few sneak peeks from my box 🙂 I’ve mixed a bit of the new with a bit of the retiring items!
So, what’s new? Can you spot the items? First, the sentiment is punched out with a brand new punch called the Pretty Label Punch (it really is pretty!). Do you see the Gold Faceted Gems? Big and bold and bling – love them!! And then finally, there’s a brand new In Color cardstock called Powder Pink. It’s a gorgeous color and seems to be almost a neutral…it blends with anything. Here on my card it forms the panel behind the dsp and the punched label.
Now for the retiring items. 🙂 The sentiment is from the Suite Sentiments set. It’s a lovely sentiment and all of the stamps in the set are great. And the fonts are really nice! If you need a good sentiment set, this is one worth getting.
The paper has been one of my favorites from the Occasions Catalog, it’s the Cupcakes & Carousels dsp (right now 40% OFF!), and the bigger label with gold is from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishments Kit (right now 30% OFF!).

Oh my goodness, look at these cute eggs! I can’t even stand it they’re so adorable! And they have personalities…look at the feet!
I’m just now starting to play with the Hey Chick stamp set. It’s one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp sets that you can only get with an order of $50 or more from Stampin’ Up! All I can tell you is that you’ve got to get this adorable set! It’s going to be perfect for all of our Easter and spring cards 🙂
The egg basket was created with a die from the Window Box Thinlits (the basket base) and the oval Stitched Shapes Framelits. The basket was stamped with one of the stamps from the Delicate Details stamp set.
I can see I’m going to have lots of fun with this set. What about you? Have you gotten this set yet? 🙂

He is risen, He is risen indeed! That’s what the early church used as their greeting on Resurrection Sunday, so that’s how I greet you today. I’m honored to be Mary Fish’s guest stamper and to bring you my card celebrating this special day.
Pastel rosebuds seem so appropriate, don’t you think? I made them using a small portion of card stock cut with the Spiral Flower Die (the thin section at the outer edge of the die). The gold thread is pulled out from a piece of Gold Baker’s Twine. And the pretty white and gold flower bed is created using the Bojo Blossoms Punch and a few pearls.
What are you doing today? I’d love to hear! I’m going to church and then to a nice brunch with my family — yumm, and no dishes, yippee!
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Easter!
