Fast & Fabulous Friday - Hello Pretty Kitty.....

I just love this stamp set as the little kittens are so adorable.  This is a card that I designed as a Make and Take at my #NorCalStampinEvent back in August and I thought it would be a perfect card to share with you on a Fast & Fabulous Friday.  In this picture, the burlap background is stamped using Lemon Lime Twist ink while in the video I show the difference if you use Versamark.  In fact, you can barely see the stamped image in the video!  Versamark is great on the darker card stocks but on lighter ones, it doesn't show as well although that just may be the effect that you are looking for so definitely play around with it.

Announcing Stampin' Blends!!! Alcohol Markers Coming November 1!

Wow, I cannot believe how long it has been since I posted to my blog!  I am so sorry that such a long time has gone by.  What a crazy few months it has been with travel, family health issues and house issues.  There has been so much going on since I last blogged including the Holiday catalog (don't you just LOVE it?) and the announcement of Stampin' Blends.  Today's video & post introduce you to the Stampin' Blends which will be available to customers hopefully by the end of the year.  (UPDATE:  Naturally as soon as I do my video, they publish a release date!  They will be available to order on November 1.)  A project kit and a stamp set are also being offered with their release (while supplies last) and you can get a look at the stamps in today's blog post as well.
Also, to celebrate, Stampin' Up! is running a contest on Facebook.  If you go over to their Facebook page HERE and find the post announcing the contest.  Like, comment or share for a chance to win a full set of the blends (1st prize) or a single combo pack (100 winners).  No purchase necessary!  Who wouldn't want to do that?  Now for my project:

Tippin' on Tuesday Using the Ever So Popular Daisy Delight Bundle!

 Today's card using the extremely popular Daisy Delight bundle which is now available for purchase and hopefully will not go on back order any longer.  I love this set along with the coordinating Designer Series Paper which has a beautiful watercolor effect.  I also wanted to use the new little Tabs for Everything punch we are offering.  I thought this was another great way to use it.

Tippin' on Tuesday - Happy Birthday Gorgeous!

 I am really loving the Lemon Lime Twist In Color this year!  It works so well with lots of other Stampin' Up! colors.  Here, I paired it with Night of Navy and Soft Sky for a fun birthday card using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and the coordinating Happy Birthday die and Balloon Bouquet punch.  What I really like about this card is that it would work for anyone - male, female or child!
