Let’s get this party started …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I just want to send a quick  “thank you” to all those who came last night and helped me kick off the brand new catalog … and the beginning of my celebrating 15 years with Stampin’ Up!

Today I want to share with you, one of the cards the ladies made last night.   It comes from the stamp set “We’re in this Together” … how fitting, don’t you think?  And isn’t that what stamping is about? … Doing something we love, with people we love to hang with, for people we love to give to.

The image was stamped onto a 2″ wide strip of Whisper White using the StazOn Ink pad.  StazOn is what I like to use when coloring.  The tag was topped off with the beautiful new Blackberry Bliss 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon.

I love the greeting on this stamp “It’s Time to Celebrate!”… which was strategically picked out for this event. lol (It’s actually on the stamp)

Our party girl was colored in with the new 2014-16 In-Color Stampin’ Write Markers – Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey!  All of these new In-colors pair up so nicely.  I just love working with them, and you will see more of the colors used in the next few posts.

The background is the new Blackberry Bliss cardstock (Congratulations to Barb who won the prize for picking out my favorite new In-color)  Oh my gosh … this color is so luscious!!  It was embossed with the “Perfect Polka Dots” embossing folder.

To add a splash of color and to draw your eye right to the focal point (our stamped image) we added 3 pretty flowers punched from the “Petite Petals” punch.  Of course you must have pretties in the center, so we added the largest of the pearls.

I have a sneak peek of another card in this photo taken of Kris during the stampin’ party…

And what a better way to complete the night but to have my upline, Vicki Towell stop in and surprise me with a bouquet of flowers.  THANK YOU VICKI … that was so sweet and they are beautiful!
