Summer Blog Hop - Stampin UP Style

Summer has arrived and I feel like I am melting. Unfortunately, my fat stores are not melting - despite the heat.  Maybe it is all the ice cream I eat to stay cool :)  Temperatures close to or over 100, and it isn't cooling down at night.  My poor bulldogs collapse halfway around the block and take lots of breaks to get the potty jobs done.  Here is a pic of one of my guys cooling off in front of the fan,

We have so many new toys and options with the new Stampin Up Catalog...I want to share just a couple I made with you

This card is a white on white.  I used the Irresistably Yours DSP and took a sponge dauber and some blue and yellow ink to make the three colors.  It surprisingly blended easily.  Simple and Fun!

This one uses the new stamp set Gift from the Garden.  I love all the little components of garden supplies.  Had to include as many as I could get. 

Now on to Jeanna's creativity spot!

Something Old, Something New

Anticipation of Stampin Up's new catalog for 2015-2016 always leads me to purchase too much of the preorder product available to demonstrators.  This year, I kept it at a minimum, but the product available is so great and versatile.  Starting June 2nd, You too, can purchase these products!  Here are a couple of items you will want.  The new in colors are bright and so fun to use.

This card went together quickly.  With great paper and stamps - you don't need hours to create a cute card. I love the new banner punch.  It creates the banner tail for 3 different sizes of paper.  Takes the guess work out of getting the tails even.  I also love love love the blossom accents.

Paper - Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Cherry on Top DSP
Stamps - Friendly Wishes
Ink - Memory Box Black
Accessories - Black/white bakers twine, In-color blossom accents, Banner Punch

The other project is a cute gift bag.  We are now selling a great punch board that creates different size gift bags.  Even punches the holes for the handles.

Paper - Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder, Cherry on Top DSP
Stamps - Sprinkles of Life
Ink - Cucumber Crush
Accessories - Fringe Scissors, In-color blossom accents, Heart border punch, linen thread, Handpicked framelits, Dotted lace trim - watermelon wonder, Gift Bag Punch Board
