More NEW Products........FaBRiC!

 I love the Comfort Cafe' Designer Series Paper but this is the FABRIC....same gorgeous colors and designs!
This was a June stamp camp project.  Just iron on the Fabric Adhesive (pg. 171) to the back of the Comfort Cafe (pg. 171) fabric. I used a piece of each of the 3 fabric designs.   Cut all 3 of these at the same time on Big Shot Die:  Fun Flowers Bigz L (pg. 193) arrange the fabric on the die so you cut the smallest flower with the 2 circles.  Mix and Match these 3 shapes to make 3 different flowers.  I used a scrap of fabric from the pieces I ran through the Big Shot to cut the pennant shape by hand, just kind of free handed that shape.
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.

New 12x12 Divided Page Protectors

 These page protectors (pg. 169) have divided slots on each page to give you lots of fun options for photos or for paper designs.
 Fill each spot with a photo or a decorated paper filled with embellishments.
 Here's a close up of one of the sections.  The Designer Paper is:  Floral District (pg. 163)
 I used the stamp set:  Betsy's Blossoms (pg. 72)
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". 

New to YOU! New product!!!

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.

I Miss You.... cold weather!

This was an Artisan Award entry.  Now that it is 106+ out the past few afternoons I really do miss the cold weather, ugh.

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

Four Seasons Hostess Set

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!)

Color Inspiration

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.

Summer time & Summer Starfruit New Color

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!!!
