Sneak Peak

The new Holiday Mini Catalog will be available starting Sept. 1st so I thought I would give you a sneak peek. The new stamp set used on this Christmas card is Serene Snowflakes. The snowflake was stamped using a new Stampin' Up product, shimmer Paint, platinum color. I also used it along the edges of the Merry Christmas using a sponge. There are 2 more paint colors available, Frost White and Champagne Mist. Each color comes in a small bottle. You can apply the paint with a paint brush or a dabber directly onto your stamp. I used a paint brush this time. Being a new product it took me a couple of tries to get the technique correct. I think I will find a lot of uses for this new paint especially on darker colored card stock.

Petal Pizzazz

I decided to use up some of the leftover scraps from a scrapbook page I made this week to make this card. A few punches, the stamp set Petal Pizzazz and voila a retirement card! Get some of your old buttons out and add them to the center of a flower for an added accent. I also used a white gel pen for the centers of the smaller flowers.

Hope you like it.

I thought I would try another card using the stamp set Razzle Dazzle in the 2009 - 2010 Idea Book and Catalog. I again used the new In Colors to make this card. Colors for this card include: Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango and Whisper White. The Happy Birthday is another stamp from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

Animal Stories

I was happy to see the stamp set Season of Friendship in the new Stampin' Up 2009 - 2010 Idea Book and Catalog. I combined the new stamp set Animal Stories with Season of Friendship to create this cute anniversary card. The Happy Anniversary stamp is part of a new stamp set called Teeny Tiny Wishes. It is a set of 24 stamps for different occasions.

Card stock and stamp pads used were 3 of the new In Colors, Soft Suede, Dusty Durango and Bermuda Bay along with Chocolate Chip and Old Olive.
