I got it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I checked my mail this morning and I got my new Catalog from Stampin Up! The way it was going I didn't think I would ever see my catty! Over at SCS it seemed like everyone had theirs before me! Now, I know thats not true...there are still a ton of people that don't have theirs and I'm so very sorry! I can't wait till we can order! There is so much I want, it's not even funny! I want all the paper but of course for those who know me that isn't a big surprise!

I should be getting my pre-view order tomorrow, so once I make some cards or whatever with the new stuff I'll post them here so you'll have an idea of whats in the catalog!

Long Cards...

I finally decided to do another SCS challenge. Which turned out to be a real challenge for me...The Color Combination Challenge used Cool Caribbean and Morning Marigold (which I have never used) and the Try a New Technique challenge was to make a long card using a set that is retiring! So I decided to use the hostess set "love it". I ended up using VersaMark a lot since I didn't have any of those colors in Classic ink pads. Here's what I did:

1) I cut the Cool Caribbean to 9"x 7.5" and scored at 3.75".
2) Cut Morning Marigold to 1.5"x 9. I took the stamp with the three flowers on it and stamped only the one flower in Versamark and made my background.
3) Then I cut Pretty in Pink to 1"x9" and stamped the three hearts in versamark and made a "border". To get them to stand out a little more I brushed them with Pretty in Pink Stampin Pastels using a Q-tip.
4) Stamp the single heart in versamark onto Cool Caribbean. Dust it with Bashful Blue Stampin Pastels and cut out using your paper scissors. Using 3-D foam adhere it to the card.
5) Cut Whisper White paper to 3 1/8"x2.25". Stamp the single flower in Versamark and "brush" with Summer Sun and pretty in pink stampin Pastels. Using the Best Wishes stamp from Simple Wishes stamp in Basic Black on to Whisper White. Cut Pretty in Pink to 3.25"x2.5" and adhere to your finished Whisper white. Adhere to card.
This size of card will fit into your legal sized envelopes!

I'm still here...

I haven't forgotten about you guys! I'm trying to get some cards done so I can upload them here! Thanks for your patience!

Happy Fathers Day

Do I ever need some stamps with sayings! I didn't have a single stamp set for Fathers Day and nothing masculine! So this is what I had to do for Fathers Day! I used Brocade Blue CS (cardstock) for the base of the card. Old Olive for the second layer stamped with the paisley stamp from Fresh Fillers stamped in old olive classic ink. "memo" stamp is from Office Accoutrement from the Spring Mini Catalog. I also used "happy" from Polka Dots & Paisleys which is also from the Spring Mini. Lastly I stamped out "FATHERS DAY" with Rough Edges Alphabet.

I did it!

Hope this works! My first time setting up a blog. I've been wanting to do this for a while, but never got up the nerve. So bare with me if I don't update a lot right now! I'll try my best!
