Catalogs are here!!

The wonderful SU Idea Book and Catalogs were delivered yesterday and I had fun delivering them to my customers who had preordered earlier! And yes! They are all they've been pumped up to be!! Beautiful projects, great tips and over a thousand products under $25!! Now's the time to get started on your holiday shopping! If you are interested in a new catalog, please email me and I'll see that you get one.

Today’s card is a CASE’d card from the Demonstrator’s corner on Stampin’ Ups website. This is such a wonderfully adaptive stamp set. Stamp the bird and branch on Whisper White card stock, then stamp just the bird and cut it out. Attach the bird with dimensionals over the first stamped image and watch it pop out!

The ingredients for this card are: Stamps – Friends 24-7 and Jumbo Wheel Friendly Words; Paper – So Saffron, Whisper White, Always Artichoke and Baja Breeze (Watch out – Baja Breeze is disappearing forever on June 30!); and Ink: Bordering Blue, Old Olive, Versamark and Close to Cocoa. Other products - Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, small oval punch (for the 24/7 phrase) and a small piece of coordinating Designer Series Paper (I found a piece of paper that coordinated with the So Saffron cs). When I rolled the Friendly Words jumbo stamp in Versamark, I rolled it on a whole piece of CS and then cut the CS using my paper cutter. This way, I saw exactly where to cut and had no words off the paper. (Hmmm - good tip there!)

I liked the stamp map of this card. I think I'll do something else with this map with another stamp set!

Remember, if there's anything you want or need from the retiring catalog, you have until 5pm EST June 30, to order it!

Tip of the day:
Happy is the gal who types with a warm cat in her lap!!

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by!
