Sparkles Galore!

Hi there!  Hope you are having a great week! I’ve been having fun making these pretty cards with the Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!

Each card uses a different one of the 2016-18 In Colors. I love seeing them all together, they are so springy!

This sentiment from the Rose Garden stamp set was stamped on Whisper White cardstock and punched with the 2″ Circle Punch. Then it was layered on top of some of the 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon and poof, a gorgeous card!

The wonderful thing about these cards is that most of the items used to make them are now FREE (individually) with your $50 order! Sale-a-Bration is almost over and I want you to be able to take advantage of all the great FREE items!  Here are the items from this card that you can get FREE (each one is FREE with a $50 order, before tax and shipping):

2015 In Colors

HERE THEY ARE!!  These are the beautiful new Stampin’ Up! In Colors for 2015-17!!  They were just revealed in the new Catalog, but it’s still for demonstrator’s eyes only.  So far I’m loving the Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron, but the Cucumber Crush is looking pretty good.  What do you think?

Now, do you also spot some other new things?  Look closely, and leave a response telling me what you see 🙂  It’s all about butterflies!  And some other wonderful goodies 🙂  I’m so excited!!

New Catie Keep Calm

In the meantime, I wanted to show you a photo of my stamping desk.  This weekend I just got some great under-the-counter lights ~ so I can see all these beautiful new colors!  We are still getting settled here at our new house, so when the rest of the room is presentable, you’ll get to see photos of the whole thing!

Don’t forget about the Retiring List with some items up to 50% off!  We have to make room for all the new catalog items!!

Beautiful Hues for the Pals Blog Hop!

Hop  Badge

Welcome to the July Pals Blog Hop! This month we are featuring a New Hues Review. Let the new Stampin’ Up! In Colors for 2014-16 inspire you – Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey, and Tangelo Twist.  We hope you find great inspiration from our creations.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Cheryl McAskill at A Stampin’ Holiday, Stop Number 20 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

Hop 2

ALL of the gorgeous New Hues are featured on today’s card ~ can you spot which ones are which?  These colors are rich and luxurious and they look beautiful with our Very Vanilla card stock.Hop cu

Sequins are a big thing right now and you just can’t have too many 🙂  They are stamped all over today’s card using one of the stamps from the Hello Darling Stamp Set, AND real sequins from our Sequin Assortment are dropped inside each little petite petal flower. Aren’t they pretty?  A few are even stamped on the envelope!

Hop 5 envie

The little “thanks” banner was a snap to make.  You just fold a strip of paper at the angles you see here, and snip the ends to form little flags – super easy!

The next stop is Michelle Gleeson at Stampin’ Mojo, Stop Number 22 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and  I hope to see you next month.
