You’ve Got This and Mint Macraron

Five new In Colors to play with.
It's time to say hello to this year's In Colors — Delightful Dijon, Watermelon Wonder,
Tip Top Taupe, Cucumber Crush and Mint Macraron.
At my Relay for Life Sneak Peek Thursday night I introduced the new
colors to everyone.
This is the one of the cards they made — it uses the Mint Macraron.
You've Got ThisThe stamp set is You've Got This.
The card base is Mint Macraron with a layer of Smoky Slate.
First I stamped the flower image on a large Sticky Note and cut out.
Then I stamped the image on the Whisper White cardstock.
I place the Sticky Note flower only the flower on the cardstock (masking it).
Next I stamped the hash background using Smoky Slate ink.
Last I stamped the words in the lower right corner.
Don't forget to color the stem using the Mint Macraron Marker and
the center of the flower I used So Saffron.

Relay for Life Sneak Peek

Every year I hold a stamping event to help raise funds for
The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life through Jeannie's Angels.
My friend Donna's mother passed away from lung cancer in 2007.
Donna started the Jeannie's Angels group to raise funds for
the Relay for Life.  I joined Donna's efforts 4 or 5 years ago and
have hosted different types of stamping events to help her raise funds.
Last night was my fundraiser — 22 ladies joined for a fun evening of stamping
Relay Group Shot
This year's event was a NEW CATALOG SNEAK PEEK.
Everyone received a new catalog for attending.
All funds received were donated to The American Cancer Society.

Cyndi was the Grand Prize Winner
Cyndi's the Winner
She won a fabulous Stampin' Up! bag that was filled with fun
stamping goodies.  Nancy was trying to get out of the picture — haha.

Everyone made four cards using lots of new stamp sets, inks, punches, etc.
Sprinkles of Life
This was one of the cards the ladies made.
This card features the Sprinkle of Life stamp set and the
coordinating Tree Builder Punch.  It also used some of the new
Neutrals Designer Paper — this year it has some silver and gold.
Very cool paper — I like the patterns.

Come back tomorrow to see more of the fun cards we made.

Bohemian Designer Paper

I've been featuring items I saw on the Hawaii Incentive Trip
that use products from the new Annual Catalog (which begins in only 5 days).
One of the new items that we were able to preorder is the
Bohemian Designer Paper.  This paper is bold and bright.
They even have a package of coordinating cardstock
(Bermuda Bay, Delightful Dijon and Rich Razzleberry).

I thought this was an adorable gift bag which uses the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit
and the Bohemian Designer Paper. 
Treat Bag 1Sweet and simple bag.
Treat Bag 2
An adorable note that pull out of the treat bag.
Treat Bag 3
Check out the back of the note card — ha—a pack of gum.
Wouldn't you love to receive this cute little treat.

They are pretty quick to whip up a bunch of them.
