Summer Shadows You Inspire Me Card

The new catalog is coming out August 3 and I have so many pre-ordered sets that it's hard to know where to start!  I want to try them all!  I am doing a demonstration of one particular bundle in August for demonstrator friends so that was an easy place to begin.  And thanks to the swap I participated in, I got to play with a different new mini catalog bundle and also some Sale-a-bration products.  

Here is my Sale-a-bration swap card:

I love the black, white and pink combination so when I saw the Beautifully Penned 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper, I knew that's what I was going to do!  This DSP is so great because it coordinates with the Hand-Penned  Petals bundle in the annual catalog on one side and is a much simpler black and white pattern on the other. 

My base is the new in color, Polished Pink, and then I added the basic black and DSP.  Also in the Sale-a-bration catalog, there is a new Summer Shadows die set.  It also coordinates with an annual catalog item, Shaded Sumer Stamp set.  I don't own that stamp set, but as you can see, there's no need to own the stamps to still get a lot of use out of the dies.  I cut my flower pieces out of more Polished Pink and Melon Mambo.  And the leaves are Pear Pizzazz.  I popped the square panel up with dimensionals and attached all the flower pieces flat. 

To finish off the card, I used the "you INSPIRE me" sentiment from the free Sale-a-bration set Delicate Dahlias.  I even made a few extras for myself to drop in the mail to some friends.  

If you live in the US and don't have a demonstrator, I would love to send you copies of these two new catalog.

It’s Christmas in July

It’s going to be hot and humid here today so what better way to spend the afternoon and evening than making Christmas cards? It’s time for our annual Christmas in July!  

I’ve been playing around with so many new products from my demonstrator pre-order, but the catalog does not go live until August 3. So it was fun to pull out some stamps sets from the annual catalog to create our Christmas cards for the day.

Ice Cream Stand Up Card

 No Designer Series Paper?  No problem!  Sweet Ice Cream is a great set!  Everyone loves ice cream in the summer, and I’ve made another fun fold that stands up when you take it out of the envelope.  

For the card base, start with a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Coming in from the side, score at 2" and 3 1/8".  I find it easiest to turn the card and do the same thing from the other side.  Less mesurements to worry about that way - you do the same thing on both sides.

I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream

I made this fun Z fold card to show off the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set and coordinating punch.  The punch makes it so quick and easy to make a cute card by punching cones and scoops - stamped or from the Designer Series Paper.  

There’s just something about a Z fold that really fancies up a card, and I love to use it on a card that doesn’t have ribbons and other embellishments.  The card base is the recently retired Purple Posey, but the sentiment and ice cream cones would make a perfect card for adults, children, male or female. Because it’s so versatile, I included this card in July’s take and make to go kits so my stampers can make their own at home.
