STAMP SETS: Good Friend, All Holidays
PAPER: Green Galore, Pixie Pink, Yoyo Yellow, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
INK: Pumpkin Pie, Pixie Pink(stamped off), Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black
ACCESSORIES: Black Gingham Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Scallop Square Punch, Flower Brads, Dimensionals, Texturz Plates
This card is so bright in person and that is what I was going for. This card is also more whimsical than what I have been doing lately. I don't know if you can see it but I ran the Yellow and Turquoise papers through the Big Shot using the Texturz Plates. In person, it really made a big difference. I adore the Texturz Plates and think that they can really add a pop to your project.

STAMP SETS: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Circle Circus
PAPER: Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Crushed Curry, Whisper White
INK: Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Crushed Curry
ACCESSORIES: Modern Label Punch, Silver Brads, Scallop Circle Punch, Fire Rhinestone Brad, Crushed Curry Polka Dotted Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals
The nice thing about the In Colors this year is they can be divided into many different groups of colors and each group looks nice. I took the Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango and Soft Suede and they look great for an autumn card or a card with an earthy feel to it. If you added Old Olive with this group of colors it would be a dynamite combination. So when you start using the new In Colors this catalog. Don't be afraid to fool around with making various color combinations because you will love what you come up with.

All the supplies are new and will be in the new catalog. Today is the last day that you can preorder a catalog from me for $5. Please contact me today if you still would like to preorder a catty. Remember after today, they will go back up to the regular price. The Rhinestone Brads, Silver Brads, Dimensionals and Circle Punches are in this catalog and will be in the new one as well.
I enjoy getting together with friends and stamp. It was so much fun and Susan's last week. I think it is good to do that sometimes because you can always bounce ideas off each other. I think that is a good way to stretch yourself when stamping. I am off now to start working on the Mojo Monday Challenge. Hopefully I will be able to post what I came up with tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your day!

ACCESSORIES: Bone Folder, Silver Brads, Eyelet Border Punch, Lovely Lilac Marker, Old Olive Marker, Mellow Moss Marker, Always Artichoke Marker, Elegant Eggplant Marker, Black EP, Heating Tool, Dimensionals, Adhesive
This card looks better in person. I think the paper is too dark for you to see what it really looks like. This one has a much different feel than the card I made on Monday's post, even though I used the same stamp. I am working on my Midnight Madness card for this week. Hopefully, I will post that later in the week. Have a great day!
