I have not taken photos of my newest creations so I am showing a card I made a few weeks ago. This was a color challenge (Tangerine Tango, Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip) on Stampin' Addicts several weeks ago and although not my usual colors I do like it. Summer Sun is my favorite yellow! Yo Yo Yellow is just a little too intense. The butterfly was cut with the Big Shot from a piece of Texturzed card stock. The stamp set is from the Occasions mini. I almost didn't buy this stamp set and I only bought it because of the butterfly. Sometimes I just get so excited about a stamp set and can hardly wait to get it and then use it once and that's it. Other times I buy a stamp set hesitantly and like it better and better the more I use it. This was one of those sets. The more I use this set the more I like it. I sure hope it is in the new catalog!
This card measures 3" x 6" and the base is textured Chocolate Chip card stock. The brad is a flower brad with a rhinestone in the middle.
I am impatiently waiting for the sneak preview of the new catalog. Demonstrators get to see it in the next couple of days. I especially want to see the new In Colors! I am stalking the Stampin' Up! web site hoping it gets posted early!
We finally had a couple of warm days here in Kansas City. My garden was looking a little stunted! I was so proud of myself this year for planting in May rather than June, however, the weather has been rather cool here and I don't think my plants have grown at all. Oh well, it will get warm and they will grow eventually!!
