Boho Backgrounds

It's amazing to me how Stampin' Up is making so many things coordinate!! I'm so impressed and can't wait to use some of the new stuff I received yesterday.

Today Catherine came out and we planned for our New Catalog Workshop on the 17th.
Here she is trying to make off with "some" of my new stamp sets. Is that guilty look or what?

Here's a card we will be doing as a make and take.

Stamp Sets: Boho Backgrounds, All Holidays
Card Stock: Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink, Purely Pomegranate
Ink: Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: Ice Rhinestone Brad, Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched Ribbon, Round Tab Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, large and small oval punches.

We will also be making a calendar and will be demoing the new rub-ons and other new products.

More New Cards

Just had time for a couple of cards tonight. I tell you I LOVE our new rub-ons. They are SO fun

This first card I cased from "notimetostamp" on SCS. I changed the colors and did a few different things, but loved her idea!!

Stamp Set: A Beautiful Thing
Card Stock: Ruby Red, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Ruby Red Stampin' Write Marker, White Gel Pen
Embellishments: Eastern Elegance Rub-ons, Pearls from Pretties Kit
Punches: Large and Small Oval

I rubbed the big flower on Ruby Red Card Stock and then cut it out. I outlined the flower with the white gel pen. "It's a Love Thing" is a rub-on!! So easy and simple. The little pearls in the center of the flowers really make them pop out!!

This next card is a bit busy, but when I got started, I couldn't stop!! The idea came from the Holiday Mini (remember the card we made at the Christmas Stamp-A-Stack? I used that basic idea!!)

Stamp Set: A Beautiful Thing
Card Stock: River Rock, Ginger Blossom Designer Paper, Whisper White
Ink: Groovy Guava
Embellishments: Silk flower from Pretties Kit (I sponged Groovy Guava Ink on the white petals); Pretty in Pink Brads from the Soft Subtles collection; Fire Rhinestone Brads, Eastern Elegance Rub-ons; Groovy Guava Double Stitched Ribbon

The sentiment is also a rub-on and says "You are a Breath of Fresh Air".

My first order from the new catalog is to arrive tomorrow. I can't wait......

More cards on the weekend!!
