Arrange all these shapes on to a notecard (pg. 160) and iron in place. Add a Dahlia or button to the flower center. Make 3 cards at the same time for a quick and easy project. Add a stamped sentiment of your choice. I used Midnight Muse cardstock with the Modern Label punch and then several phrases stamped on white, with Midnight Muse Ink, and punched with the Word Window punch.
Sorry, the 3rd paper section didn't want to load. I used the Oval Accent Bigz Clear Die in Daffodil Delight....folded it in 1/2 and it was placed at the top edge of that Lucky Limeade 4x6" piece of paper so it showed on both sides of the Lucky Limeade 4x6".
I love the new Comfort Cafe designer paper! You can find it on page 163 of the 2012 Stampin' Up! catalog. This card was made with other new product in the 2012 Stampin' Up! catalog: Midnight Muse Cardstock and Ink (pg. 152) and Midnight Muse Dahlia (pg. 175). I used the Blossom Petal Builder punch (pg. 185) for the flower shapes and Boho Blossom punch (pg. 185) for the flower center punched from Cajun Craze cardstock.

This is one of the projects from the stamp camp in Greeley yesterday. Isn't this new set adorable? It is called "A Cherry on Top". This card uses new "In-Colors" of ink/cardstock/ribbon in Midnight Muse and Gumball Green and a regular color of Marina Mist. This card was created by Joanne Randolph. Stamp camp was great fun, thanks for all who attended and thanks for Joanne for opening up her house for us again this year! Happy stamping, Jennifer

I love this new hostess set: Four Seasons! I think it will make adorable cards, ornaments and gifts all year round. I hope to find more time to play with this set this summer. I have some small mason jars and other projects in mind for this set. Just need to find more time to play with these new sets! Check back later and I'll post pictures from our 10th Annual stamp which is today in Greeley, CO. That's what keeping me busy this week (as well as cleaning my messy stamp room!)

I found the inspiration for this color combination on page 83 of the fabulous new 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! catalog. It's kind of out of my comfort zone for usual color combinations but I had fun trying it.

This card uses the new Stampin' Up! In-Colors: Summer Starfruit and Midnight Muse. I have to admit that when I first saw this yellow color I kind of thought..."eeewww", "different"...."kind of chartreuse like"..."I'm starting to like it". The more I use it the more I like it....especially when paired with Midnight Muse! I've also noticed that this Summer Starfruit color is all around me now. Here in Western Nebraska the wheat fields are turning from green to yellow and match this color perfectly! And, as long as the hail storms stay away the wheat will turn a prettier yellow more and more each day until harvest in just a few short weeks! Have a great summer!!!

I like alot of card designs that look like quilts. They are just fun and easy to do with Designer Series Paper. The Square Lattice embossing folder adds the little extra touch to make this paper look (and feel) like a quilt.

This is a fun card design that uses up alot of left over papers. The Triple Treat Flower stamp coordinates with 3 different Stampin' Up! punches which makes this flower easy to construct. I used Crumb Cake and Concord Crush cardstock for the card and Wisteria Wonder ink stamped on Whisper White for the flower.

Here are two more versions of the adorable Petite Purse Die. This die is so easy to cut and assemble. For the purse on the left I cut some DSP to cover the top purse shape. For the purse on the right I ran it through the Big shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Both use brads to hold the handle on and to add an embellishment to the purse flap.

three posts back. I actually made 50 of these and 10 of the masculine version for thank you cards for Teacher's Appreciation week for our school. The inside has a pocket/slot that holds a gift card (or cash!) This card is done in Certainly Celery, Old Olive and Pool Parade. I replaced the Pool Party shape with various colors: Wisteria Wonder, Rich Razzleberry. Regal Rose and it was also a very pretty color combination. I hope you can see all the Dazzling Diamond glitter on the stamped flower images as that adds the "wow" factor. These cards were a great way to use up odds and ends of ribbon as most coordinated and added to the fun shabby chic look.

I've always been a fan of traditional scrapbooking but love the ease of the My Digital Studio. So here is the 8x8" page from the previous post turned into a 12x12" page complete with chipboard letters for the title. So I turned my MDS into my traditional style of page layouts....and, if you are any part of "Husker Nation" you will understand the red balloons used for page embellishments.
