HSS 189

Hi stampers and happy Tuesday!  And happy July!  HOW can it be July?  Little Baby Backes is due 30 days from today!  Ohmygosh!  I feel like I've been pregnant for about ever in one way but can't believe he's almost here in another!  Granted, we did know much earlier than most people do but still!!!!! It's crazy that now when people ask when I'm due I can say THIS month :-)  Guess that's why the dry cleaning lady said I was big the other day?  LOL!  Well lady I don't think I am but I am working on close to 9 months here ;-)

Anyway today is full of fun!  First, customers can order the pre-order sets of blendabilities now!  I've been having fun playing with these!  I'll have some tips and projects to share soon I hope (still struggling to get in the stamping AND blogging and doing most of anything lol groove!).  You can now get the skin tone set, coastal cabana, cherry cobbler, old olive, daffodil delight, rich razzleberry, and pumpkin pie now.  The rest of the colors will be out on August 1.  They really do make coloring easy and I'm so not a good colorer!  Even my hubby complimented my work the other night!  Also, buy any 3 packs of our DSP and get a fourth free through the end of the month!  Not too shabby!  All of these items are available in my online store or by contacting me directly.

And maybe the most fun of all, a new challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments starts today!  This week is an awesome color challenge using some of the new in colors!

I just love the new in colors and have NOT used them enough!  For my card I used the kinda eclectic stamp set.  This is one I tried NOT to like, lol!  Do you ever do that?  Try NOT to like a set so you don't HAVE to buy it?  LOL!  I'm kind of glad I sat on my order for a while because I really had talked myself out of it but then I kept seeing amazing cards made with it so I had to get it!  It's great on it's own and will work so well with so many other sets and elements!

I kept it pretty simple though since I got started on this a tad bit late.  But it makes great simple cards!


Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Kinda eclectic
Paper:  Whisper white
Ink:  Hello honey, lost lagoon, tangelo twist
Accessories:  Basic rhinestones, natural ribbon, hello honey ribbon, butterfly punch

I stamped off the dots once although it's really hard to tell in the photo.  I think I should have stamped them off twice!  Lost lagoon is such a deep pretty color!  And the butterfly was punched out twice.  The first one I adhered flat with glue dots then folded the second one slightly in the middle for some dimension!

Ok, now it's your turn!  Go see what the rest of the team did and grab those new colors and play along with  us!

Happy stamping!

  1. Gorgeous card, Mindy! I love this set. I haven't seen a card made with it that I didn't love! I can't believe it's July either. Can't wait to see that little guy of yours! Enjoy your last month!
