Ahhhh....New Catalog....New FUN! Really Good Greetings & a GIVEAWAY!

Are you missing the old Stampin' Up! catalog already?  


Not me!  I happen to really like change and lots of new things!  So, I'm all about having a new catalog to drool over!  

One of my new favorite sets is Really Good Greetings. 


Because they are Really Good!  :)  

I like the mix of fonts and styles in the set.  (I've been known to go goo-goo over typography!)  Like the "I miss you already" - great mix of fonts.  Love that.

This card happens to use all of the 2013-2014 In Colors.  Yes.  It really does - I had to sneak in the Strawberry Slush....but I did it!  

My card base is Baked Brown Sugar, topped with the newsprint from Soho Subway.  I used Coastal Cabana for the tag portion, and stamped it with Bermuda Bay - just so it would stand out a bit more.  The flowers are Crisp Cantaloupe and leaves are Pistachio Pudding.  So....where did I sneak in the Strawberry Slush?  The large flower center was stamped with it, then I grabbed a Sharpie Marker in a very similar color and colored some of our Basic Pearls to pull the color in a bit more!  I like it!

Are you ready for some more fun stuff?

My Dad Printer’s Tray & Card!
Many children believe their Dads are invincible, heroes of amazing strength and wisdom.  This project is designed to showcase Dad through a child’s eyes.  It was designed using a Printer’s Tray with six equal 4" x 6" openings but any divided frame will work.  Another alternative would be to bind the various panels into a mini album instead of displaying them in a frame.  The coordinating card will work for Father’s Day or a birthday by just swapping out the inside sentiment.
