On the last day of convention, and at the last possible moment, Stampin' Up!'s gave all demonstrators in attendance this:

It's products that aren't even available yet from the Holiday Mini Catalog that will be available starting September 1st. My intention is to get busy creating with these items very soon. So, keep an eye out.

Saturday Fun

I just received my first order from the brand-new 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog. It was only 2 stamp sets (freebies that I earned with my sales from Sale-a-Bration!), but what fun!

The 2 cards that I'm showcasing today are from the stamp set, Friends Fur-ever. The layout is almost identical, but I've changed the colors used. This first card uses Real Red, Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White. The dog image was stamped onto a piece of Basic Gray card stock and cut-out and attached on the chair using 2-Way glue. That wasn't my first intention, but when you aren't thinking and stamp the chair first, and then the dog, you just have to do something! Otherwise, the lines of the chair go right through the dog!

This next card uses Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. Probably one of my favorite color combinations!

On both cards, I colored in the stamped images using the Many Marvelous Markers. The embossed sections were done using the Sizzix Big-Shot and the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, Perfect Polka Dots and Square Lattice.

Because I Care

With the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog released, I wanted to share a card using a Level 1 Hostess stamp set. It's called "Because I Care".

For this card I used just one new In-Color, Pear Pizzaz. The other colors used are Bashful Blue, and Chocolate Chip. You might also notice a new Textured Impressions Embossing folder for the Sizzix Big-Shot. It's called Vintage Wallpaper, and it gives an elegant look to the card.

Now, to get finished setting up for my open-stamp-night. I'm hoping to get working on my swaps for Stampin' Up!'s convention later this month.
