I'm just playing around with the stuff in my stash while I wait on my new Stampin' Up! goodies to arrive. Can you believe I haven't placed an order since the debut of the new catalog? The ugly truth is that I kept changing my mind and told myself to sleep on it before ordering. With all the new goodies in the catalog, I just decided to go for it and place that order!
Now I don't know about you but I just love the Elements of Style stamp set. I hadn't inked up the hummingbird yet so I used him this time around. I didn't want him to feel all neglected. I also pulled out my Big Shot (love it) and various dies for this card. Since I had out my Big Shot I decided, "Well, heck! I might as well try out the new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. " The embossing folders are always first on my orders. The embossed image gives cards a texture and depth making embossed cardstock so easy to use in exchange for patterned paper.
Thanks for peeking in on me today! I apologize for not posting in a while. I just got back from vacation over the weekend. Now that I'm back, I'm in the cardmaking groove even if I'm still undecided if I like this card. Hopefully I'll have some new projects to share with you soon.
Have a great week!

Don't you just love this idea? It reminds me of a big old cup of Orange Crush! I saw Leann Greff's card and was immediately inspired. Do you want to know a secret? The cup on this card is amazingly simple to make! All you need to do is trace a disposable cup on vellum, cut it to size, score the edges at 1/4" and add sticky strip. Just use a sponge dauber and some ink to color the inside of the cup and you're done! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy! Dawn Griffith has a wonderful video tutuorial on making a cup card. You can view her video here.
Thanks for peeking in on me today!

I don't know about your neck of the woods, but it is in the upper 90's in southern Ohio. No relief in sight until Friday! Ugh! So, please stay cool, stay hydrated and stay INSIDE! Thanks for peeking in on me today!

Well, I just ending a wonderful Fancy Folds card class. Let's just say, I truly enjoy spending time with these awesome women. They just make the stress of the day melt away. Thanks ladies for a terrific evening. And thank you for peeking in on me today! I'm a little tired and need to hit the hay. I've been experiencing insomnia this week and I'm sure to crash and burn soon. Stay tuned - I have pictures to post from this evening's class. I hope to share them with you this weekend.
