A Million Thanks …

Happy Friday Stampers!

The weekend is finally approaching!

As promised, the card I made for you today highlights 2 of our new colors.  First, the “Crisp Cantaloupe” from the new In-Colors and the “Smoky Slate”.  I really like this color, and it’s going to go with a lot of colors.

I’m going to do something a little different … I’m going to show you some great new products out of the catalog first and then lead you into the card!

Let me introduce you to one of the pretty flowers (there are 6) in the “Flower Shop” stamp set found on page 94 of the catalog.  I stamped this in the Smoky Slate … then punched it with the coordinating punch “Pansy” (130698).  I love it when our stamp sets have coordinating punches, makes life so much easier!

Next … “WASHI TAPE”!  Man is this stuff fun to play with!  this is the Epic Day This & That Designer Washi Tape (131269)  I used the “gray” to coordinate with my card, but there are 2 other rolls that come with it.  Then I topped the flower and washi tape off with our Basic Pearls (119247).

Here’s just a little shot of the inside of my card … stamp it a couple times and add a strip of washi tape.  I have begun stamping inside of my card, just because everyone opens them up to see what’s inside (even if you’re only showing a sample!) I love it!

OK … now the card!

With our yummy “Crisp Cantaloupe” and the “Smoky Slate”.

Don’t you think they look good together!

A Million and one Thanks for taking this stampin’ journey with me!  You will find the “Million & One” stamp set on page 161.  I fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it.

Maybe I’ll make the next card with the other stamp in that set … “Fabulous is what you are” and I believe it!

Have a great weekend ~

To my Best Friend…

Hello Stampers!

Sorry about the “repeat” … still a little new at this blogging – lol

Today I want to share with you, the beautiful new 2013-15 In-Colors!  Well, I have 4 out of the 5 for you on this quick and easy card.

The base of the card is done in the “Baked Brown Sugar”.  Then the 1-1/2 inch by 3-1/2 inch strips are: Pistachio Pudding, the “Strawberry Slush”  in the center, and finally the “Coastal Cabana”… a place we all want to go!  Maybe with that Strawberry Slush that has one of those little umbrella’s in.

Do you think  Stampin’ Up! already had these colors in mind when they were planning the Caribbean Cruise Incentive trip!

OK … back to stamping!  The Coastal Cabana is a touch greener than my picture turned out… hmmm.  Guess you’ll just have to come over and see it for yourself.

The cute little greeting is from the “Label Love” stamp set and it has a coordinating punch (130920) Artisan Label punch.

I actually stamped twice in the two colors … punched out the black, and cut out the Strawberry Slush and popped it up with our Stampin’ Dimensionals.

So … How do you like our new colors?  Let me know, I’d love to hear from you!

Oh, and come back tomorrow because I will be showing you the 5th In-Color … the yummy “Crisp Cantaloupe”.
