Inspired By Pimento Olives

I am really gravitating to the color combination of Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red, but it always makes me think of pimento olives. I do not like those olives, but I sure like the color combo. I have made lots of Inspired By Nature cards as I had a swap due using the set. I still have several more to post, so if you love the stamp set keep coming back for more. As always all supplies can be found in the current Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog.

Another Flip Out Scrapbox

When I held my scrapbox class I borrowed a Simply Scrappin' Summer Days kit from my upline Tami W. In total I must have put together seven boxes. I made one last box to give to Tami, but not from the Summer Days pack. Instead I used the brand new Pina Colada Simply Scrappin' kit to make her box. This worked out perfect because it is the same design yet printed in a new color scheme. I won this kit at convention along with the Calendar Alphabet stamp set. Gifts are always great to receive and even better, to give. I hope she will like her scrapbox.  As always, all supplies come from the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog.

Cupcake Card Inspired by Dena

This is a simple and quick card that I cased from my friend Dena R. All I did was change up the color palette to showcase three of the new "In Colors" from Stampin' Up! They are Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, and Pacific Point. All supplies are from the current Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog.  These stamps come from the set Party Hearty.

More Inspiration by Nature

I seriously think this, Inspired by Nature, is the coolest new stamp set from Stampin' Up! The set is double mounted which means two pieces of wood with four stamp images. I stamped the Canvas background stamp on top of my flowers using Versamark ink then added heat-n-stick. Once melted I added my all time favorite accessory, Dazzling Diamonds glitter. In person the card is gorgeous. As always, all supplies are from Stampin' Up!

Playin' with New Stamps

It is always a total delight to attend Stampin' Up! convention. Everybody receives a great gift of an awesome totebag filled with goodies. One goody was the stamp set Flight of the Butterfly. Below are a couple samples I made using the set. Nothin' tricky about these cards except if you look closely at the first card I stamped the butterfly with the flower butterfly image using versamark, added heat and stick, and finished with GLITTER! As always, all supplies are from Stampin' Up!

Can you guess what stamp set is still sitting on my table waiting to be stamped with again? Yep, Inspired by Nature. This card is super simple and was made with scraps left out. I did include one of the new Designer Buttons.  As the button was an after thought, I did not tie the ribbon through the button holes. Instead I glued it just under the knot. That was super simple and fast with no stress trying to thread big ribbon through tiny holes.  As always all supplies are from Stampin' Up!

Convention Cuties

In the top picture the grouping of goodies were given to me at SU! Convention from Julie B. They were all wrapped super cute in a cello bag complete with yummy treats (I ate them all up). Notice the very sweet new DSP. It is called Bella Rose. The second picture is of my cute friend Kaylene and myself standing in front of the main stage at convention. We had tons of fun, lots of laughs, and received FREE stamps! The best part of convention is being with all my stamp buddies--I can't wait to see them again.
