The Summer Mini is now LIVE!

The 2010 Summer Mini Catalog went live at midnight on May 1st, 2010.  I was able to pre-order some of the new materials in the catalog and had some time today to make a few cards.  These cards were all C’ased from the mini or the current issue of Stampin’ Success (the magazine demonstrators receive monthly).  You can order the new items at my Stampin’ Up! website anytime! 🙂

The first two cards are from the Summer Mini:

This card is 3 x 3.

Stamp set: Blissful Bride

Ink: Staz-on Jet Black Ink, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry

Card Stock: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Watercolor paper

Accessories: Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, rhinestone brad, aqua painter, dimensionals, adhesive, mat pack, paper piercer

This card is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4

Stamp set: Blissful Bride

Card Stock: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Watercolor paper

Accessories: Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, rhinestone brad, aqua painter, dimensionals, adhesive, mat pack, paper piercer, 3 flower punch, corner rounder

The next two cards are from the Stampin’ Success Magazine (I changed the colors a bit to reflect what I had…the ones in the magazine were made using the new In colors and I just cannot bring myself to use the samples I have…just yet anyway!)

This is the most over the top card I think I’ve ever made…7 layers!  I think it would also look very pretty in Rich Razzleberry/Chocolate Chip or Rich Razzleberry/Soft Suede or even Rich Razzleberry/Old Olive…I could go on and on!

Finished size 5 x 5

Stamp Sets: Vintage Vouge, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Close to Cocoa

Card Stocks: Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Very Vanilla, Vellum Cardstock

Again, I changed up the colors a bit on this one.

I’ve also heard that the retiring colors of card stock in the 8 1/2 by 11 size are selling out quickly, so if you need any, click here or contact me to order them for you! 🙂

Club Cards for April

We’re meeting a little later this month, so I wanted to get some retiring papers into the mix before they were gone:

This basket was created with the Baskets and Blooms die.  I modified it a little so it was a longer basket.  I used Pretty in Pink for the basket and the flower.  The flower was created with the Scallop Circle Punch and the brads from the mini that will expire on April 31st.  Melon Mambo ribbon was also tied on.

This card was created using Whisper White, Certainly Celery, and Pink Passion.  I also used Vellum cardstock for the wings.  The stamp set is Pick A Petal.  I embossed the wings with Glassy Glaze after stamping them with Pink Passion Classic Ink.  I also used a paper piercer  and a set from the mini for the greeting (can’t think of the name right now… 🙂  ).

This card was inspired by the IBC (pg. 55).  I recreated it almost exactly, except no fresh lavender to be found!  This one holds a packet of seeds.  I used Mellow Moss textured cardstock, Lavender Lace, and Very Vanilla.  I used Mellow Moss, Pale Plum, and Perfect Plum for inks.  I then sewed the whole thing with white sewing floss and my sewing machine.

This card is cased entirely from my upline Angie.  Thanks Angie!!! 🙂  She is so creative!!  This card uses Very Vanilla (she used Ivory Naturals), Old Olive, Not Quite Navy.  Use Versamark for the ink and then Stampin’ Pastels and sponge daubers to apply the pastels.  Rough up the edges with the distressing tools and ink with Close to Cocoa.  Stamp greeting with Close to Cocoa.

There’s still room if you would like to join us on Saturday at 10am.  Let me know! 🙂

New Spring Cards

Hi Everyone!

I’m on Spring Break and have finally had some time to use some of my newer materials!  I’ve been surfing the internet for some cute ideas and have come up with several  “case-d” ideas!  The Forest Friends Box is from my upline Angie (aka Chic n’ Scratch) and the rest came from “De Stampin’ Corner”…changed just a little.  Enjoy!

Got to go…I’ll come back later and update with a materials list…dinner calls! 🙂  Happy Spring Break!

New Mini Goodies

I just love these new clear mount stamps (they are NOT the clear type stamps that other companies sell).  Same old SU! rubber, mounted on a clear block for easy positioning! 🙂  They are fabulous! I’m going to be building up my collection of clear mounts rather quickly!

I also can’t stop ooohing and ahhhing over the new punch style!  Today was the first day I’ve used them, and the corner and edge punches are so easy to line up and make things look beautiful!

Here are some of the cards we will be making at my next class in February.  I’ll give credit under each where due.

I Case’d this cute treat holder from Patti.  She’s got a picture tutorial on her site you will want to check out! 🙂

This card is pretty much straight from the Mini.  I loved the Eggcoutrements set and the way this card was laid out.  I changed it just a bit to make it easier to duplicate for my class.

I saw a card similar to this one in the Mini as well.  It was made with the “hugs” cards that are available (forgot to order them!!), so I improvised with the new Scallop Corner Punch and Scallop Edge Punch.  I also used the new extra large Bird and Leaf punch (new favorite!!) and the Vintage Labels Clear Mount set (you can get it free with a $50 purchase thanks to Sale-A-Bration!).

These next two are case’d from Shelli Gardner.  She showed them at the Leadership conference (I’ll get there one day!) and I wanted to make them so that you knew that from now until Feburary 28th, SU! will donate $2 from every I {heart} Hearts set purchased to the Haiti Relief Efforts.  You can click here to order.

Hope you enjoy them!  Contact me or click here to order your supplies or to receive a Mini Catalog of your own!
