It's a party

It's always a good time when I get time in the Igloo.  Today was a day of creating.  I worked on my team swaps for the meeting next week.  The theme was anything I combined a few things.
I used the new In-colours: Sweet sugarplum, peekaboo peach and dapper denim with some old favourites: pool party and tempting turquoise.  I love the new cupcake stamp.  It's a triple stamp set for the icing and bottom.  it's made easier to do since it's a photopolymer stamp.  I also used the new banners for you bundle.  And to finish it off, some wink of stella on the icing.

I am quite pleased with these.  I may add some more confetti to them.  When you have a party, you can't have too much confetti, right?

Thanks for looking.  happy stampin

playtime in the new igloo

This was the first weekend I got a little play time in my new igloo.  It's not finished yet, because the floor has to come up, so I haven't unpacked a lot in there.  But a dear friend came over on Saturday, and we had some fun creating.

this card was cased from a fellow demonstrator, Patty Bennett.  I've admired a lot of her ideas.  Imagine my surprise when I woke this morning after posting it on a few boards that she commented on it *smile*  It made my day.  I didn't have the birthday stamp she used, so I substituted with this one, and she liked it and commented on it.

And since not everything is unpacked, I only had my pearls and gems available, so used pearls in the middle instead of the embellishments she used.  It's a really pretty card using the new in-colours and pool party.

Thanks for looking and happy stampin :)

It's the most wonderful time...of the year!

That's right!  It's June, and you know what that means?!  It's NEW CATALOG time!!!

All I can say is WOW!  Stampin' Up! has come out with a GREAT catalog this year.  The new in-colours are luscious!  So many new stamps and tools and bundles oh my!!

In May, as a demo, we got to do a pre-order, and I got a couple things...but one of my favourites that I was able to order was the swirly bird bundle.

This was something I made for a friend who had shoulder surgery.  A fun and funky chick deserves a fun and funky card.  I used the waves from the swirls and scribbles framelits and cut them out 3 times in each of the new in-colours and 5 times in black. (I wanted to make sure I had enough for any alterations).  I laid out the black waves first using the tombow liquid adhesive.  Then I just started adding the colour strips.  I was quite pleased how it turned out.  It is time consuming, but it was worth it for my friend, and when she got the card, she was just in awe :)

I am really excited for some of the other things I've ordered.  And I can't wait to play with them in the new igloo :)

Thanks for stopping by.   Happy stampin'
