Happy New House!

My oldest daughter and her fiancé just bought a house. Sniff Sniff! My Doodlebug is adulting! I had already made them a congrats card using items from a previous Paper Pumpkin kit, but my mother asked me to make one for her to give as well. In the City* Hostess set to the rescue! I knew I wanted to do a line of houses and feature something that would put the focus on just one. At first, I thought about using a sunburst behind one house, but Hunter had a much better idea. She said, “Make all the houses gray, except for Syd’s! And make hers yellow, since that’s close to the color of the new house!”  So…as any good mother would do, I listened to the advice of my youngest daughter and here’s the final card. Super cute with those new Glitter Enamel Dots, too!

Cool Treats Party Time

Last Sunday, I showed you a super fun popsicle card. Here’s another super fun card using the Cool Treats suite on pages 32 & 33 of the new Occasions Catalog. This one uses the same general layout of the previous cards. It’s my go-to layout.  With last Sunday’s popsicle card, I used Wink of Stella on the darker portion of the popsicle. This time, Hunter wanted me to use it on the lighter part of the ice cream cone. It’s perfect! How can you not smile when you see this?

Painter’s Thoughtful Wishes – Sneak Peek!

My beautiful man in brown (UPS driver) brought me a box today. Now, this was no ordinary box. It was a Stampin’ Up box. And this was no ordinary Stampin’ Up box. THIS WAS MY PRE-ORDER BOX! This innocuous box contained all the NEW 2016-2018 IN COLORS ink, cardstock and ribbon along with some stamp sets, a punch and Designer Series Paper!  All these items AND MORE will be available for you to purchase starting June 1st.  In the meantime, have a look-see at the 5 fun Birthday cards I made this evening that showcase the GORGEOUS new In Colors:  Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum! Notice the adorable scalloped square that the sentiment is layered on. Stampin’ Up has introduced new layering framelits that have both straight edges and scalloped edges. Love!  The paper stack, washi tape and Painter’s Palette stamp set are all part of the Playful Palette Suite of perfectly coordinated products. The adorable banner on the top left is an awesome bundle of the Thoughtful Banners and Duet Banner punch. This is what I love so dearly about Stampin’ Up! Everything goes together like tofu and nooch!
