Some more new products Sneak Peeks today.  The Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set and the Happy Birthday Thinlit can be purchased together in a bundle when the new catalog goes live on June 1st.  The large thinlit layered on top of some pretty paper, makes it really easy to make a quick birthday card.

Daisy Delight Sneak Peek

Only a few more days until the new Annual Catalog goes live.  One of my favorite new products is the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and coordinating Daisy Punch.  The punch was so popular during the demonstrator pre-order that unfortunately it is on backorder but I was fortunate to get mine.  This is one of the cards my ladies will be able to make at my New Catalog Open House next Wednesday, and I'm pretty sure it will be one of their favorite new items too.

Other new products used are Powder Pink and Berry Burst Ink, Berry Burst Card Stock, a layer of Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper and a Gold Faceted Gem Embellishment.  

The Happy Birthday sentiment is from another new set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  

Soon all of these products can be yours.  If you do not have a relationship with another Stampin' Up! demonstrator and would like your own free catalog, leave a comment or send me an e-mail.  My customers will be picking up their copies on Wednesday, May 31st at my Open House.  If you are in my area, feel free to stop by between the hours of 10 am - 1 pm and then again from 6 pm - 9 pm.

Celebrate Today

The Celebrate Today Stamp Set and coordinating Balloon Framelits Dies are retiring soon.  They will be available until the end of May and you can purchase them on sale too.  See prices below.

For my card, I used Emerald Envy Card Stock for the card base and added a coordinating piece of Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper. Emerald Envy and Mint Macaron ink were used for my balloons and my animals at the bottom of the card are from the hostess set Love You Lots, and they are just the perfect images to send out a cute birthday card. 

The following were used:

In other news I just received my preorder of new products today and my boxes of catalogs.  So, if I don't post anything for a few days it is because I will be busy preparing for my upcoming Open House and working with all of my new things.  So much fun being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and I can't wait to share all of these new products with you soon.

Best Dad Ever

I know it is not even Mother's Day yet, but I wanted to have Father's Day cards ready for my May Stamp Class.  Below is one of the card the ladies can choose from.

The large sentiment is from the Everyday Tags Stamp Set that is retiring.  I stamped it onto Whisper White Card Stock and then cut it out with a Banner Framelit and framed it with another framelit cut with Basic Black Card Stock.  The Urban Underground Designer Series Paper made a nice layer for my card and Delightful Dijon card stock was used for my card base.

For the inside I used the sentiments from the Guy Greetings stamp set which will be carrying over into the new Annual Catalog in June.

Botanical Blooms

Wow -  the Botanical Blooms Stamp Set and coordinating Botanical Builder Framelits, which were used in today's card, are retiring but both are on sale!  If you like this card and would like to purchase the products to make the card the Stamp Set is on sale at 25% off and the Framelits are 50% off.  

To create my sponged background I cut a circle out of the thick white paper that is in your designer paper pack to create a circle stencil.  I always save them for this type of project.  I then took a Stampin' Sponge and some Soft Sky ink and sponged the ink in the circle stencil.

Next I cut a small piece of Falling In Love Designer Series Paper from some of my left over pieces, then cut out my leaves and flowers using the Framelits and Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (sorry these papers are already sold out).  I placed this all onto my card front and added my sentiment to finish my card.
