I have 2 cards, so be sure to scroll down!
It's Thursday and as I mentioned last week, Thursdays mean showing you a CASE (copy and share everything) card to you. Today's inspiration comes from the current catalog, the Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog on page 72.
Here is my version:
Stamps: Wild About You, Birthday Wish, Polka Dot, Well-Worn Numbers
Ink: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Night of Navy
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, More Mustard, Old Olive, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Accessories: 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Dimensionals
Isn't that a cute child's card?! I did change a few things for my card. Since I didn't have the stamp sets that Stampin' Up! used in their card, I substituted for the Wild About You set and added the Birthday Wish stamp for the sentiment. The Wild About You stamp set is on the Last Chance List, so make sure you order today if you would like to get this set before it is gone forever. It will be available until June 30th...Item 115110, $25.95.
Today is June 25th, 6 months before Christmas! I know, can you believe it? On the 25th of each month, I want to show you a Christmas card. It's never too late to start thinking about Christmas cards. Every year, I always think...if I would only start a bit earlier in making my Christmas cards. The Holidays seem like such a rush at times...wouldn't it be great to work on my cards early, so that is one less thing I need to get done during the Holiday Season! Wishful thinking, huh? Let's dream for a minute...create 10 cards each month...I would have 60 cards complete by December 1st!
Stamps: To You and Yours
Ink: Baja Breeze
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Accessories: Texturz Plates, Big Shot, Scallop Edge Punch, 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" Circle Punches, Dimensionals, White Organza Ribbon
I hope you enjoyed a bit of Christmas today! Like I said, I will share a little of Christmas each month on the 25th.
Have a great day!

One of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is receiving FREE stamps!! We all love free stuff...especially stamps!!! The sentiment I used on this card is from a set that I just received free as a reward from Stampin' Up! It's called On Your Birthday! It has some great sentiments in it! A stamper can never have enough word stamps!
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, On Your Birthday
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Confetti White, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Windsor Knot DSP (retired)
Accessories: Circle Scissors Plus, Dimensionals
I don't know if you have noticed or not, but the last several projects that I have posted, did not have ribbon...Gasp!!! I know! I can't believe it!!! I didn't think it was possible to create anything without ribbon!!! Ha! Ha!
Have a good one!

Here is the card that I gave to the volunteers in RJ's class. It took alot of time, energy, and patience for the volunteers to keep the children busy and to keep track of each of them! I appreciate it so much! RJ had a great time! And it means so much to me to be able to feel peaceful and content about dropping my son off, and to know he is safe and having a good time!
This card is very old!!!! I can't even remember when I created this one. It's one that I created for a class several years ago. I can't remember off-hand the DSP, but the colors are Only Orange and Pink Passion (or was it the old Positively Pink???). I hope you find inspiration in the colors, layout or another element of the card. It is cute!
Have a great weekend!

I am having so much fun coloring these roses!! I have a couple of roses set aside waiting to complete a project! You can see a video tutorial here showing how to create these beautiful watercolor roses. (I get so much inspiration from Patty Bennett! She is amazing!) The layout for this card is similar to one created by detailmama on SCS here. I used Pink Pirouette and Regal Rose reinkers to color the rose on Shimmery White Cardstock. You will have to trust me...it really shimmers! It's so pretty in real life.

There it is...the new catalog! Isn't it just beautiful? It has a matte feel to it...not shiny. It's a great-looking catalog, as always!!! Stampin' Up! just keeps cranking them out!!
I ordered mainly all the In-Color stuff...Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, & Melon Mambo! I can't wait to see these colors in action! They are so pretty! You will love them! Look at that ribbon! I order a few new stamp sets too!
Do you see what I see??????? YES...IT'S THE MARKERS FOR THE IN-COLORS!!! You ask for it and Stampin' Up! listens. This is so exciting!
Ok, I haven't had a chance to run through the entire catalog yet, but I did notice a few things. Who has the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set??????? Well...there is now a punch that will punch out the big butterfly!!! We don't have to cut it out anymore!!
You should see the new personalized stamps too!!! Very cute!
You are going to love all the ideas that this catalog will bring you! It is LOADED with inspiration! Can't wait for you to have one in your hands! But wait, I won't have my boxes of catalogs until later this month. So be patient. If you are at my house, you may browse through my catalog...but after you wash your hands...just kidding!
Off to look through my catalog! Later!

Here is a card that I created after I saw a similar card on Deb's blog, ARTfelt Impressions. She has some good stuff! I just tweeked mine a bit and used the supplies that I had on-hand. Her card is so pretty. Go take a look here!
This card is so purty in real life. The rose is created from Shimmery White Cardstock. I wish you could see the shimmer! You can see a video tutorial by Patty Bennett, showing how to create this beautiful rose! It's quite simple...just need a little patience to allow it to dry! While I was embossing the rose, I made a few extra to play around with different colors. I'm so excited!
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Warmest Regards (retired)
Ink: White Craft Pad, Rose Red pad, Reinkers: Rose Red & Regal Rose
Paper: Kraft, Confetti White, Certainly Celery, Shimmery White, Pink Pirouette Patterns DSP
Accessories: Top Note Die, Little Leaves Die, Texturz Plates, Big Shot, Clear Embossing Powder, White Taffeta Ribbon, Corner Rounder, Dimensionals, Aquapainter
The Little Leaves are attached to the back of the rose using Dimensionals. Makes it easy!
So now it's your turn! Go give it a try! You will love that you did!
Have a great weekend! I have another card posted for Saturday night!

Click HERE to see the LAST CHANCE STAMP SET LIST (ALPHABETICAL)
Click HERE to see the LAST CHANCE STAMP SET LIST (NUMERICAL)
Once I figure out how I can list the Accessory Last Chance without retyping the entire thing (I have tried with no success!), I will do so!! I will try to update it daily, as these items will be first come, first serve. They will only be available while supplies last. If you need any of the IN-COLOR collection, please order ASAP, because these items will go fast!!! Got the IN-COLOR ink pads? Make sure you order the refills before they will be gone forever!!
Hopefully I will be back with the Accessory List. If you want to ask about any of the accessories, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
