DOH! More doilies!

Hi stampers!  Doh (in my best Homer Simpson voice) MORE DOILIES?!?!?!  I know I said I'd move on but I've got more cards using delicate doilies for you:-)  This set is just so easy to use and I'm loving the new in colors!  I have been playing around with this simple set when toying with ideas for general swapping at convention.  I'm not sure if I'll make many as I don't have a ton of time and it's stressing me out a but and I don't like to put a ton of work into the cards when I might not get some great quality things back.  I'll probably make some and when I'm out, I'm out.  I am in a cool organized swap with two spots so I should have around 30 awesome samples to share after convention!  I also hate mass producing cards so I already have an aversion to swaps, lol! 

Anyway I was playing around with the same general layout you've seen me use a few times here and also playing with some of the new in colors.  I had not previously used calypso coral but I thought it might look good with wisteria wonder and a couple of this years in colors.  I'm not to thrilled with my first attempt which I used calypso coral, wisteria wonder and poppy parade.  I didn't stamp the colors in the order I had intended to or layered the CS in the way I wanted to either so I may have like them better if I had. 

Oops, I glued this one down upside down:-)  Oh well, I'll just flip the script (why YES, I have been listening to the 90's on 9 on my XM radio) and turn it on it's side.  See, there are no mistakes in stamping...just creative opportunities:-)  I'm just not sure how I like the way the colors worked out and I don't like the four frames label I put on.  Oh's not entirely hideous!

However, I do really like my second attempt!  For this card I was more careful about what colors I stamped and layered where.  I also think I like the color combo of peach parfait, wisteria wonder and calypso coral much better.  This just may make it to convention with me!  It will be easy to reproduce and while it's simple the pearls and rhinestones add just the right amount of glitz.  (Gotta remember to order more of those, I'm going through them like fire!!!)

I also really like how the F in fantastic goes so well with the doilies, they look like they were made for each other!  Remember, that's from one of the new hostess sets, Perfect Words.  I can't beleive that you'll be able to earn the new hostess sets on FRIDAY!!!!  It just can't be July already!!!!! Anyway, I'd promise to show you something else besides doilies next time but we already know there is a good chance that's not going to happen, lol!  We'll see what happens....happy stamping!

I got nothin....

Well maybe not nothing but not much...I don't mean projects to plenty of those...but I'm TIRED:-)  And I have to be up early tomorrow to teach an hour and fifteen minutes of Turbokick!  I was going to learn some new moves but I don't see it happening!   I just finished up my hubby's anniversary card since we'll be celebrating our first year of marriage on Sunday, woohoo, lol!  I'll share it after Sunday, it's cool...I want to give it to him now, haha!  Soooo quick post and dash here...

This is yet another card using delicate doilies...funny how a set that I disliked the first time around has become my most used new set.  BUT, it's really easy to stamp with and lends itself well to clean and simple cards that are quick to put together so I guess it makes sense that I've used it a lot.  Now, to use the REST of all my stuff, hehe!  Anyway this card is based on one I saw by Viki Mears and you can see her card HERE.  I loved her colors and simple layout so here ya go...

Changed it up a bit to use what I had and I loved the lucky limeade, pool party, and daffodil delight!  Ok, I wasn't kidding, that's it for me...night stampers!

Room Re-do: Part One

Hi stampers!  So posted a video of my stamp studio a while back and said it was the "before".  Well, I convinced Jon to make a stop at IKEA on the way home from Ohare after our Vegas vacation last week.  It didn't make sense to not go since we were almost driving RIGHT by it and it's a good three or so hours up there from our house.  I had to make sure his belly was full at Potbelly's first and then promise to make it a QUICK trip.  I really do love him to letting me go even though he was tired and he helped me find everything and load it into the car.

I'm calling this part 1 because with our luggage, I could only get part of what I wanted to fit into the car and I'm still not sure where I'm going to put a few things as I don't have a lot of wall space to work with.  So...another trip to IKEA is in store...probably with my mom as she wants to go to get things for her new home!  Jon will probably opt out of that trip since my mom could spend a whole day there!  Heck, by the end of the day I'll probably wish I had opted out, lol!  Anyway, I spent most of my Friday morning assembling it all and I did it almost all by myself.  Jon said he would have loved to do it, he loves assembling IKEA stuff...funny how he said that when I was ALL done, lol! I didn't work out that day either since I was in the zone but I was so sore the next day so it was a workout in itself!!!

Anyway I'm very happy how the first part of the room turned out.  I had wanted a cubbie bookshelf to hold a bunch of stuff and I also wanted a table area where I could have a dedicated station for my paper cutter and my big shot.  It's been very nice having my paper cutter off of my stamping desk and freeing up some more room for the rubber!  It's also nice to crank stuff through the BS and not have it slip off the narrow bookshelf it used to live on!  The desk is plenty big for some other storage too, like my ribbon and retired in color ink pads.  Lookie:

 I really like the drawer unit I got to put underneath as well, it holds LOTS of stuff.  I need to get some baskets for the insides to keep them nice and tidy too!  My re-inkers even fit in the lower drawers!  Don't mind the rails and self on the floor...they are still awaiting a new home.  And most of my punches will probably end up on the rails and out of the cubbies but I was under strict orders to get my stuff out of the guestroom where I had relocated it for the re-do:-)  Here is another view of the bookshelf:

I thought I had read that the 12 x 12 paper holders fit in the cubbies but I found they did they get to live up top.  I also really like having my big shot boxes so close to my BS!  I'm still in need of some regular bookshelves to store all of my stamp sets but I'll have to wait on those.  And can I just say that even though I measured so I knew it would all fit it looked MUCH smaller in the BIG store than it does in my little room, haha!  I do love it though and can't wait to get the rest finished and everything back in the room where it needs to be and stuff up on the walls.  I'll leave you with a shot of my room from the door looking at the new stuff.

Oh and the best part?  I had some gift cards so I didn't have to spend much money, yay!  Stay tuned for part two...some day!  Happy stamping!

Two minutes late and $13 short

So I got inspired Sunday night to do a card for the Monday Mojo sketch challenge.  I knew I was close to the cut off time to enter but I went to work anyway.  I also used an expired color challenge from the Paper Players so I knew I couldn't enter that BUT old challenges are good inspiration too!  Well I got my card done and thought I should just go and make sure the challenge is closed....turns out I had TWO minutes...TWO left to enter, lol!  Obviously I was not going to get  a picture taken, edited and then posted somewhere in two minutes.  I wish it had just been closed instead of being SO CLOSE to making it, haha.  And this card was a winner too!  Just look:

Stampin' Supplies
Stamps:  Delicate Doilies, Perfect Words
Paper:  Whisper white, melon mambo, daffodil delight, wild wasabi
Ink:  Wild wasabi
Accessories:  Scallop circles die, 3 inch circle die, 2.5 inch punch, punch pack, basic pearls, lace ribbon border punch, dotted scallop border punch (wow, this card is punchy, lol)
Isn't it pretty????  I've struggled a bit with the lace border punch so I was happy to find this sketch that it worked perfectly for!  It's a bit out of the box for me but I really liked how it turned out.  The sentiment is a sneak peek from a new hostess set called Perfect Words...and yes I can't seem to make a card without using it either, lol!  I thought the font coordinated really well with the doily theme though!

As for the $13 short...well I didn't gamble much in Vegas but I "won BIG" on a penny slot...I won all of $13, hahaha! I played it for my hubby because the theme was Star Wars and he's a BIG star wars fan so he told me to keep going....well I lost the $13 I won and the $20 I started with...I should have listened to the voice in my head (that sounds JUST like my mom) and cashed out, hehe.  Wanna see a picture of my BIG win (it's a bit dark as the bright lights from the win messed with the flash, haha)?

That $13 could have bought me a new stamp set....oh well and maybe next time:-)  Happy stamping!

Pretty & Purple

Hi stampers!  I have yet another sneak peek for you today!  Normally, I'm not a purple fan....well in stamping anyway.  There IS purple in my closet!  Not sure why I don't use it much in stamping but I was not the LEAST bit sad when SU retired some of the purple colors last year...maybe I was the only one??!?!?!  Now, I do love rich razzleberry but the others I could take or leave.  BUT in walks one of the new in colors, Wisteria Wonder.  OMGEEEEE!  It's so pretty!  I just LOVE it.  It's a softer purple color with a hint of gray...which is probably why I like it, I love gray (my mom and I would go round and round in high school because she said all I ever wanted her to buy for me was gray clothes and I needed some color, lol).  So, as soon as I saw wisteria wonder I knew I wanted to try it out with perfect plum and basic gray.  And THIS is what I came up with:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Delicate doilies, tiny tags
Paper:  Very vanilla, watercolor, basic gray, wisteria wonder, perfect plum
Ink:  perfect plum craft, perfect plum, wisteria wonder, basic gray
Accessories:  Circle punches, doily triple layer punch, crochet trim, jewelry tag punch, fan letterpress plate, basic rhinestones

The wisteria looks a bit blue in the picture but it's really not, it's a pretty lavender!  There are some other fabulous sneak peeks here too!  One is the stamp set, delicate doilies which is so fun!  I've made a number of cards with it already!  It makes great clean & simple cards but is also great for more complicated ones like here as well.  I also used the new fan letterpress plate and love it's vintage look for my background.  Oh and the stamp set also coordinates with the doily triple layer punch!  A hint here is that I punched out my shape first and then used my SAMJ to stamp on the shape just perfect since you can't use those punches upside down.  I'm still not feeling up to par after vacation and had a headache tonight so that's all for now!  See you soon!  Happy stamping!

Not just for pennants and cupcakes

Hi stampers!  I had quite the day in my stamp room yesterday!  Here is one of the cards I came up with:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Sunny Fun, Build a cupcake, Pennant parade
Paper:  Whisper white, island indigo, lucky limeade, dafodil delight
Ink:  lucky limeade, crumb cake, island indigo
Accessories:  circle punch, scallop circle punch, paper piercer and mat pack, daffodil delight ribbon, jewelry tag punch, linen embossing folder

Notice anything????  Well the ice cream is actually made with the cupcake punch and the ice cream cone is made with the pennant punch!  That's what I really love about our stamp sets and punches; they can be used in so many ways!  And that our stamp sets combine with other sets so well.  They cool of you sentiment is from the Sunny Fun set found in the summer mini.  I really need to play with the other stamps in the pennant parade set other than the scalloped pennant, it's pretty much been my go to so far!  Anyway, I'm working away on some swaps for convention at the moment and I should probably get back to it as I have to punch out around 200 shapes just for ONE swap.  What was I thinking????  Happy stamping!

At it again

I woke up with a sinus headache today so I skipped the gym (thank you rainy humid Illinois weather...boy do I miss dry Vegas) and haven't done much of anything today.  But I did finally start some laundry, put away the rest of the vacation stuff and did some stamping!  I saw the Inkspirations color challenge for this week while were gone (thank goodness for free wi-fi) and knew I wanted to play along.  I'd been thinking about what to make all the way home and this is what I came up with...even though it looks NOTHING like what I had planned as per usual, lol!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Hello blossoms
Paper:  Old olive, mambo melon, basic gray, whisper white
Ink:  Old olive & mambo melon markers
Accessories:  Petals-a-plenty EF, basic gray taffeta ribbon, brights buttons

And look!  The petals a plenty embossing folder isn't just for Christmas!  It goes great with this little ala cart stamp!  This is my favorite stamp in the whole summer mini.  I just used my markers to ink it up!  And then I stacked a couple of buttons and tied them with some crochet thread!  Quick and easy card.  I had fun playing the challenge now go look at all the other pretty cards over there.  I've got to go make some lunch....I sure miss vacation and just having my lunch handed to me, lol!  Happy stamping!

Home again, home again jiggity jig

Well, as always vacation is over way too soon!  And the title of my post is what my grandma and mom would always say when we come home from somewhere, anyone else ever heard that expression???  I've never heard anyone else say it:-)  Anyway, Vegas was awesome as always but HOT!  It was over 100 our last two days there and that made for a rough take off and climb on Thursday.  Good thing I had my SU catalog (and some Xanex, lol) to take my mind off of it!  And speaking of that new catalog I have a card to share with you today with even MORE new stuff.  I didn't order the Delicate Doilies set on my original pre-order SOOOO I had to place a second one that came when we were gone...oh the torture of knowing my goodies were sitting in the house all alone!!!!!  Anyway I tore into the box yesterday after I got my new IKEA furniture put together (I'll post some pics of my partly finished stamping space soon) and came up with this:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Delicate doilies, fabulous phrases
Paper:  Whisper white, lucky limeade, pool party, island indigo
Ink:  Same
Accessories:  Basic pearls & rhinestones, modern label punch

Isn't it pretty?  I'm not really a fan of real doilies (just ask my mom...if she even tries to put some ugly old doilies in her new home I'm going to pitch a fit, lol) BUT I really like this set!  It also matches a few of our punches.  This card is pretty simple but I love the combo of the new in colors!!! 

I'll also leave you with a few vacation pictures so you can see I WAS having fun even though I wasn't stamping:-)

I guess that's about it for now...I've got to do laundry and unpack and make up for a week away from my stamping studio....guess what order I'm doing all that in, lol!  Happy stamping!

It's so hard to say goodbye...

I guess I'm channeling Boyz II Men today:-)  I got one more card done last night so I thought I'd share before my little break (which if I can find cards I have not posted this week I will post a few so it may NOT be much of a break, hehe).  I'm really sad that the Newsprint DSP is retiring.  I really thought maybe they would keep it around!  I kind of want to buy up a whole bunch and hoard....I mean stock up on it...but I won't.  But I combined it with something new last night by using one of the sentiments from a new hostess set called Perfect Words (AND the hostess benefits are going to change a little bit starting July 1...and I don't think you'll be's a really great program!).  I love the little saying "on a scale of 1 - 10 you're an 11!!!!  And how great would it look with the numbers sheet from the DSP...well just look!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Perfect words (new hostess set)
Paper:  Newsprint DSP, marina mist, basic black
Ink:  Marina mist, basic black
Accessories:  circle punch, wide oval punch, lots of tags sizzlets

Isn't it cute?  But in a manly sort of way:-)  I have a feeling I'll end up giving one of these to my hubby!  It was super simple and I'm getting into the 3 x 6 cards as of late.  I just love how even our old stuff matches our new stuff perfectly!  I really love the words in this set, they are so fun and lots of fun fonts!  Hope you liked it, time to get some stuff done around here!!!  Happy stamping!

I'm back baby!

At least for today...lots going on in the next week so this will probably be my last post until next weekend.  So, I've not been very motivated to stamp this week or do much of anything:-)  Still trying to get used to my summer work schedule and get lots of workout time in too.  Plus, I can't seem to stop gazing (and maybe drooling a bit) over the new catalog!  I think sometimes making out my wish list is more fun that stamping!!!  LOL!  Anyway, I loved the Colour Q challenge this week!  I wanted to do something really bold with the cherry cobbler kind of like the skirt (which I LOVE) but I ended up with something more subtle.  I did use a sneak peek stamp set though.  Check it out:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Snow much fun (sneak peek)
Paper:  watercolor, subtles DSP stack, crumb cake, early espresso, cherry cobbler
Ink:  staz-on, various for watercoloring
Accessories:  Modern label punch, two way glue pen, pearls, dazzling diamonds, cherry cobbler seam binding

I think it turned out pretty cute!  Although, you'll have to excuse the crummy pic, I just took it and they never turn out well at night.  The sentiment really does show up better than in the picture too. So I'm ahead by two Christmas cards already this year, haha!  When I saw this little guy and his birds, I knew they would be the perfect pop of cherry cobbler so I colored him all in with my aquapainter.  I should have used my watercolor crayons but I forgot!  Anyway, I highlighted him using some crumb cake to make him look a bit more vintage.  When all was said and done he just needed "something".  So, I also highlighted him with some dazzling diamonds and that was just IT!  He looked fab!  I hope the CQ ladies enjoy my little snow man...which by the way I would love to have for a friend right now...or at about 7pm today after running four miles out in the almost 90 degree weather:-)  See you next weekend!  Happy stamping!

Birthday Parade!

Hi stampers!  I'm back with another sneak peek and I think my favorite yet!  I was inspired by a project in the catalog to make this card with the banner.  I love the color combo of the three in colors with daffodil delight!  I also love how the pennants are stamped on the same colored card stock and then popped up in the middle.  And know what?  I didn't have to cut those suckers out either!  The new pennant punch punches out the scalloped design and also the plain little inner triangle!  I'll try to post a video of it in July for some helpful hints.  Every card I make from now on might have a pennant on it, lol!  Isn't it cute?

Stampin' Supplies: 
Stamps:  Pennant parade, create a cupcake
Paper:  Whisper white, dafodil delight, pool party, wisteria wonder, lucky limeade
Ink:  basic black, pool party, wisteria wonder, lucky limeade
Accessories:  polka dot emobssing folder, punch pack, boho blossoms punch, pennant punch, rhinestones, subtles brads, crochet thread

I have to say, I'm rationing my in colors since I forgot to order a full pack of each.  That's what ordering at 2 am will do I guess:-)  That's the real reason my card base isn't one of the new colors BUT I think that it worked out well and was the best choice in the end since it pulls it together with the little yellow flower accents.  The little flowers are also layered on white CS that I stamped with the small A to Z background stamp and then punched out with the boho blossom punch.  The little rhinestone really adds something too! The sentiment is from create a cupcake and I did cut it by hand!  I also love how the dots on the white background go with the polka dots on the pennants! Anyway, I think that's about it!  Hope you are enjoying the sneak peeks!  Happy stamping!

Need some coaching?

Hi stampers!  I'm BACK!!!  I got two cards done tonight so I'll have something to share tomorrow too (and maybe even tonight if I'm on the ball, hehe).  So, I found my mojo BUT I have trouble with color combinations sometimes (shhhhh, don't's a secret).  I'm an SU demo so I'm just supposed to magically be super creative right?  Um yeah...not so much:-)  Well, when I was up until all hours of the night last week for the sneak peek release I noticed something....the new in color color coach cards.  Maybe it was my fuzzy brain at that crazy late (or early) hour but they were amazing!  Now, I'll be the first to admit that I have put off buying the color coach because I just didn't see the need.  WELL!  My mind has been changed and guess what's sitting in the shopping cart for my next order!  Yup, the color coach!  If you have been on the fence or never even thought about it you should get it.  It's very useful!!!!  Anyway, I did get the 5 in-color cards last week and they are terrific!  Just LOOK what I put together using it:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Grunge Rock, Perfect Words (new hostess set)
Paper:  More mustard, island indigo, lucky limeade, whisper white
Ink:  Same
Accessories:  Circle punches, dimensionals (wow, that's a record for me I think, hehe)

OMG!!!!  Isn't it awesome!  I would have NEVER thought to put more mustard with Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade which are two of the new in colors.  Indigo sort of looks like not quite navy in the picture but it's really not, it's much brighter.  But the picture did for once pick up the shimmer of the smooch spray that I used.  I used the gold on the mustard base and the silver on the indigo mat.  Can you find the final sneak peek???  Can ya???  Does that sentiment look new???  Well it is and how well does it work with grunge rock????  PERFECT!  I used my new in color markers to ink it up in all three colors.  It's a set called Perfect Words and I'm in love with it!  I really should have held off ordering ANY hostess sets since I always earn them BUT I'm a sucker for the words (you're saying yeah right....we read your blog, we know you can't shut up...hehe)!!!!  But really, I just LOVE how easy it is to pair up SU sets with other sets, they all work so well!!!!  AND the hostess sets this year are just fan-freaking-tastic!  I love each and every one of them (and there are lots).  Otherwise, this card just has lots and lots of distressing.  I'm sure it will wind up on my hubby's desk since he pretty much rocks my world and doesn't care if I neglect him to stamp...or stare at my new catalog lovingly (which I have been doing A LOT...and will probably do again here in a few minutes, hehe).  Anyway, happy to be back!  See you soon!  Happy stamping!

Nothing new to see here...move it along....

Hi stampers!  I know that you are anxiously awaiting more pretty pictures of projects with the new sneak peeks from the 2011-2012 IBC but the timing of the release was less than ideal!  On Wednseday I was still waiting for the goods and then there was the fiasco that was supposed to our Cardinal game which turned into wasting a bunch of gas to get halfway there only to be turned around because the highway was shut down....

Then I had to get up at 5AM (and if you know me you KNOW I don't do that well) to take Jon to work since I had picked him up on the way down to my Mom's on Wednesday night.  Now I did share some cards with you Thursday and that wore me out!  Haha.  I'm still tired from staying up Tuesday night and then I had to go back to work on Friday...which was ANOTHER fiasco...the shecule I had said that we opened at 8 so I set the alarm for 6 BUT I must have turned it off and I didn't wake up until 7!!!!  So I rushed around to get to work only to find out that we were not opening until 8:30!!!!  Really?  Then I rushed home to run and get everything over to my mom's house for our rummage sale.  I don't think we were done until 10!!!  Of course then I couldn't go to sleep....I stayed up chatting with a stamping friend online way late only to have my mom want me to be at her house at 6:30, yuck!!!!

And then it was so freaking HOT outside that it completely wiped me out...I had taken a bag of stamping stuff to work on but I was afraid it was too hot an humid to take my supplies outside AND the act of breathing was making me SWEAT!  LOL!  I did try to spend some quality time with the new catalog last night until a BAD storm came out of nowhere and knocked our power out for like two hours!  REALLY????? 

Soooo, I promise I WILL come back soon (hopefully today) with some new projects and sneak peeks...but it'll have to wait until after the grocery store and some laundry....and I'll have to take a break at some point to run since it's raining out now and it messed up my plans to get it out of the way this morning!  And if I can quit staring at my gorgeous new catalog and quit trying to figure out what I MUST have on July 1;-)

Maybe next year's release will be a little least I hope or I don't think I'll make it, hehe.  Hope to see you soon!  Happy stamping!

Hello Baby!

Ok, I'm back with another one....I thought this would be a birthday card when I started but it turned into a baby card pretty fast:-)  Which, if one of my BFF's has a girl next week when she's due (hopefully she has the baby before we go on vacation, hehe) I'm all if it's a boy....well I guess I should get back to work, haha! 

 The sentiment is actually two separate words from the set that I stamped together, I like the mismatched font look!  I REALLY like the in colors this year too!  Last years took a while to warm up to some of them.  The new ones make me want a fruity drink...but I can only imagine what my projects might look like then!  Hope you like it....I think I might need a nap before I stamp again...but I'll probably just end up curled up on the couch with the dog and my catalog....I need to study it some more...I have to look up the names for the new stuff and that just won't do, lol!  Oh, and my stamp room is a DISASTER area...looks like I'll be cleaning as well tonight!

Stampin' Supplies: 
Stamps:  Pennant Parade
Paper:  Subtles DSP patterns stack, pink pirouette, wisteria wonder, pool party, whisper white
Ink:  Same
Accessories:  Pearls, subtles brads, Petite pennants builder punch, small oval punch, modern label punch

Christmas in.....

JUNE!?!?!?!   Yep, that's right...if you're a Stampin' Up demo that is!  Yesterday the new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog was released to us along with a few sneak peek items from it!  It' the happiest time of year!  Of course Christmas is a close second because you don't have to PAY for all the presents you get, hahahaha!  So, all day yesterday and this morning I waited patiently (ummmm yeah RIGHT) for the UPS man to drop off my box of goodies!  And SU, the evil genius they are put ALL of my products on top of that catalog so I HAD to look at them and oh and ah over them before I could dig that book out!  LOL!  And OMGEEEEEEEE is it fabulous!  It is my favorite catalog thus far and I can't wait for you to see it!  And you can order from it starting July 1!  Anyway, yesterday turned into a rather crappy day as my family had tickets for a Cardinals game and half way to St. Louis the interstate was closed because of an accident.  I have NEVER seen the interstate close and we were cutting the time close anyway so we didn't want to drive all that way for one or two innings.  Add in the fact that I had gotten about four hours of sleep since I stayed up until 2:30 to order all this stuff (LOL) AND I was hungry since it was way past my supper time and it was NOT a fun car ride to say the least.  Anyway, we were all bummed but now that I've got my catty I'm happy as a clam!  So is anyone still with me or did you just ignore all the blah blah blah and skip down to the pictures?  (It's ok if you did...I would have too, hehe).  Anyway, I promised some of my SCS friends that I would try to get something made and posted today so here is the first of what I HOPE is many cards and or posts that I get done today......

Now, should I be nice and tell you all the new stuff or be naughty and let you find the sneak peeks yourself????  Ok, you twisted my arm...I'll tell the supply list mmmk?  I have not seen a Christmas stamp in the sneak peek before so I had to have it since I LOVE Christmas.  This set is also normally not my style but I think I like it!  I have to say that I really do think that there is something for EVERYONE in this catalog.  I'm not sure if SU got some new artists or what but it's crazy beautiful and if you can't find something you're just plain nuts, there, I said it;-)  Ok, tell me to shut up and go stamp more since I took the whole day off to do just that....ohhhh, who's the nutty one now?  LOL!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Snow Much Fun (new for the 2011-2012 IBC)
Paper:  watercolor, riding hood red smooth and textured, chocolate chip, lucky limeade
Ink:  Riding hood red, chocolate chip, lucky limeade, peach parfait
Accessories:  pearls, modern label punch, lace ribbon border punch, silver glass glitter, 1/2 inch scalloped dots ribbon chocolate chip

Happy stamping!
