This beautiful card was made by Dena R. I love the spring colors and the texture is divine. The stamp set is called Fifth Avenue. Every sample I have seen using this set is great. I am glad my mom bought it so I can borrow it :0)

New Stamps, Old Trick

I love this valentine card. I have done this trick before with an old stamp set, but it is so fun I decided to do it again. Just stamp three hearts in a row, cut them out keeping them attached, accordion fold, and glue into a card. If you look carefully at the front you'll notice the DSP has been embossed with a texture plate. All supplies are from Stampin' Up!

New Brads

Such a simple new accessory, but oh so cool. First of all they come in ivory, white, chocolate chip, and silver. Second, they are bigger than the usual brads at 5/16". There are even bigger brads too, 5/8". The greeting comes from Bird on a Branch and the DSP is Flock Together.

Big Shot Cuts Felt

Like butter, the Big Shot can cut felt. I used the scallop circles from the pennant die to layer behind the 1 3/4" circle. The greeting comes from the stamp set Bird on a Branch. And, check out the new colored library clips. They come in chocolate, white, and olive. All supplies are from Stampin' Up!

Birds of a Feather

Cool new paper in cheery spring colors and an awesome new stamp set called Bird on a Branch were used to make this card. If you look close you'll see that I also used a texture plate on the background panel and on the scallop punch. I also used one of the new flower brads. They are bigger and heavier that what I have seen in stores--these are way better. My all time favorite accessory, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, finishes the card.

Eyelet Boarder Punch

It's quick, simple, and adds lots of personality to your projects.  Here are just a few samples of the new punch mixed with more new Stampin' Up! products. The embosslet is featured on the olive card and a FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp set on the pink card. I love "Two Step" stampin' sets. That was the biggest reason I joined SU! eleven years ago. When I first saw their catalog I was blown away with the idea of "Two Step" stamps. You can see on this card I am not so good at lining the images up (or the greeting for that matter).
