Embellished Events

DSC01364

I know it is the end of September but I am having a hard time giving up spring and summer this year.  I apologize ahead of time if you have given it up long ago.  Maybe when the first snow hits (oh please not for a while yet), I will be ready.

I made this card using Embellished Events.  It is the set I always recommend to a new stamper because it has a stamp for everything in it.  You can use it for birthdays, Christmas, weddings, baby showers, New Year’s and just a plain thinking of you card.  If you look really closely you can see I put a tiny pearl in the center of each flower.  Now, let me tell you.  I love Stampin Up! Basic Pearls.  They come in four different sizes and I used the smallest.  They were not the easiest thing to use until I figured out that if I picked them up with my paper snips, I could pop them right on the card.  Why didn’t I think of this before??

Saying Goodbye To Tea Shoppe

Tea Shoppe

Tea Shoppe

This time of year is so exciting because the new catalog will be coming out but at the same time, it is sad because some of my favorite stamp sets are retiring.  Tea Shoppe is one of the retiring sets that I will miss.  I just love those little tea cups.  Other products this card uses are the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die, the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder and Jewels Basic Pearls.  Dont’ forget to order Tea Shoppe before it retires at the end of May!

Dress Up Again

I am warning you now.  There will be a lot of posts using the new Dress Up Framelits from the Occasions Catalog.  I love these Framelits, which I am sure you will be able to tell!

This time I made the skirt out of the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper for that is in the Sale-a-bration Catalog.  You can earn this paper FREE with a $50 purchase!  The jacket is made using Pool Party Card Stock and the buttons are Basic Pearls
