Bring On The Cake!

Another 2 stamps sets that I just knew I had to have from the new catalog! Bring on the Cake and A Fitting Occasion.  I paired it with some of the NEW 2012-14 In Colors, Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, and Primrose Petals and added some Baja Breeze ink.  I pulled out a scrap of DSP from the pack Patio Party.  I grabbed some punches and this is what I came out with.  I love that we have coordinating ribbon for the In Colors, and that it is soft and easy to tie.  And what card isn't finished without the use of the Basic Pearls?

Bootiful Occasions

Okay, am going to admit that this stamp was the FIRST one I just had to have out of the new catalog!  I cannot stop playing with it.  This week is the Stampin'Up! National Convention and I am not attending, and I am sad, but am BLESSED beyond anything I could imagine to be going on a trip with SU! in the fall. (And I WILL be attending next year for my 10th Anniversary with SU! for THEIR 25th Anniversary!)  A gal on Facebook thought it would keep our minds off of going this year by having a "Non-Convention Goers" card swap.  I must say, it was nice to get all those cards back in the mail just in time for me to start seeing all the posts about those who ARE going and how they were leaving for Utah that day.  Anyway, here is my card and I am sure you will all be seeing more of it in the near future!

Well, this is my card that dedicate to all of those who I know that earned the Hilton Head Getaway! CHEERS TO YOU!  I saw this card on a blog and knew it would be one that I wanted to try when I got some time, and what better time to create then when you have tons of new product that hasn't been used! so, I brought out Old Olive, Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit cardstock and inks and started stamping!  It's a 5 1/4 x 12 piece of Old Olive, scored with the Simply Scored tool, at 2,4,8, 10, and then cut from the middle of the outside panels up to the top and then fold. I used the Happy Hour Stamp set that I also just had to have, and stamped it in the RR and OO inks, and stamped one extra umbrella and cut it out, and, yes, popped it up on top of another one.  I then added some Basic Rhinestones across the front on top of a sliver of Summer Starfruit.  I hope you enjoyed today's card, believe it or not, I have one for each day this week!
