Gatefold Card

I love this new stamp set! It is called Triple Treat Flower and can be found on page 18 in the Idea Book and Catalog. What I especially like is that I can use punches (Fancy Flower, 5 Petal Flower and 1/2 inch circle punch) instead of cutting it out. I used dimensional to pop up all of the layers. I also used the new Houndstooth embossing folder. I also used Pool Party, one of the in In Colors this year!

Stay tuned for the first Glitter Queens Blog Hop on September 5th! I will be one of the stops. It will be the first blog hop that I've participated in so I am excited. I hope you'll stop by!

For Baby

I am attending a baby shower tomorrow and made this card using a stamp set that I received when I went to Convention. It is just one of the perks of being a demonstrator and attending this once a year fun event! It is a cute set called Easy Events. It is very versatile and you can find it on page 57 in the Idea Book and Catalog. I also used Dazzling Details which is in the new Holiday Mini which goes live on September 1st. It is an iridescent glitter glue! I used it on the duck's hat and the umbrella. It gives it just enough bling! Thank your for stopping by!!

Pennant Parade

Today's card uses the new stamp set called Pennant Parade. I also used our new builder punch Petite Pennants Builder. My colors are Elegant Eggplant and Melon Mambo with Elegant Eggplant scallop dots ribbon. It is very colorful in person. There are so many different things you can do with this stamp set and punch. I've seen other demonstrators use it to make an ice cream cone or birthday hat. So versatile! Are you inspired to give it a try? Thanks for stopping by!

Button Buddies #2

Here's another card using the cute set, Button Buddies. I wanted to use some of our 1/2 inch scallop dots ribbon in pretty in pink but I didn't have any. I still think it looks pretty darn cute! I have several baby showers coming up and this might be one of the cards that I use. I used several new items on my card such as the Houndstooth embossing folder. I think I use my embossing folders on almost every single card that I make. I love the texture that they add. I also used the sentiment Petite Pairs. I think this is turning out to be one of my favorite sentiment sets. It is on page 164 in the catalog. Let me know if you have any questions or would like to place an order! Have a great day!

A Cherry on Top

I love this color combination! I never would have thought to use so much black on a card but I saw one by Gretchen Barron using this stamp set and these colors. It really is a fun new set in the Idea Book and Catalog 2011-2012 called Button Buddies. I hope this inspires you to give this stamp set a try.

I will be participating in my first blog hop in early September! More information to follow soon. Hope you are having a great weekend!
