And still more cards!

And still a few more! I've been having too much fun with the new stuff!!
This card was a CASE from the Spring/Summer 2008 Catalogue. I used the new Baja Breeze & different ribbon. I love how it turned out!!


Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip - paper; Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery - ink; Baroque Motifs - stamp set; 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop edge punch, 3/4" circle punch, Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon - accessories;

I love the combination of the new Pacific Point & the Tangerine Tango!! I realized while I was making this card how addicted I've become to patterned paper. It was fun inventing my own background for this card. This stamp set makes me think of flower watercolor paintings.


Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Baja Breeze, Whipser White - paper; Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Apricot Appeal, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive - ink; Happiness Always (hostess), En Francais - stamp set; Label punch, clear rhinestone brads, 1/2" circle punch - accessories;

Playing with my New Stuff

The new Bella Rose Designer Series Paper is sooooo pretty! This really soft pink & rose paper just made me think of baby girls. The Sock Monkey is so cute I had to put them together. I see that my favorite Close to Cocoa Prints DSP is discontinued so I used my piercing template and white gel pen to make the polka dot background. So in love with the taffeta ribbon! I'm glad they didn't discontinue it!

Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Ridding Hood Red - paper; Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa - ink; Sock Monkey, Everyday Flexible Phrases - stamp sets; pink taffeta ribbon, white gel pen, piercing template - accessories;

After looking at this new Dreams de Jour set I thought this stamp would fit perfectly in the 1 3/8" square punch. There's something about stamps that fit into a punch that just makes me happy! I stole this layout from a Black & River Rock card I made a month or so ago. I like how this one turned out!


Kiwi Kiss, Ridding Hood Red, Bella Rose DSP, Whisper White - paper; Kiwi Kiss, Ridding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip - ink; Dreams de Jour - stamp set; 1 3/8" square punch, blender pen, Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon - accessories;

New Stuff, new stuff, la, la, la, la, laaaaaaaaa

And the new colours are...... (Drum roll, please)....
So I'm pleased with this year's colours & the new Bella Rose paper that combines the Ridding Hood Red with the Pink Pirouette is BEAUTIFUL! I received my pre-order from this fall's catalogue & had to get right into it!! I went on splitcoast & check out some samples... Here's some of what I came up with.

This card is only changed slightly from the sample. I think it's gorgeous!
This one too I really like. I change the layout & the ribbon from the sample. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/982949?cat=14268

And finally a Chirstmas card already!! One of the new hostess sets for the fall catalogue is this Deer Friends set. So cute! It reminds me of the Halloween one they had in last year's catalogue. I think I'll have lots of fun with this!

Fancy Fresh Cuts

My friend tempted me into another card exchange & here's the result! The layout came from this card:
