Bee Happy

I love this Bee from the Sweet Stuff stamp set.  This is one of the cards we made at my New Catalog Kick Off Party. 

Bumble BeeThe designer paper on this card is the Confetti Celebration in the new catalog.  For this card I used Crushed Curry cardstock for the base and then a layer of Crushed Curry that has been embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder.  I added a piece of Tangelo Twist ribbon before adhering the layer to the cardbase.  I cut the banner end of the designer paper, adhered it to piece of Basic Gray designer paper and trimmed the bottom end of that.  Then just stamp the images and color in with markers.  Punch out the bee with the 1 1/4" circle punch and adhere the layers together, then use dimensionals to adhere the stamped pieces to the card front. 

This card was so much fun and everyone loved the bright colors of this card.

New Catalog Kick Off Party

Wednesday night I held my NEW Catalog Kick Off Party!!!  What a great time we had.  Here's a picture of some of the ladies stamping away and using the Big Shot for some of their cards.
Group 2 The room was filled with stampers have fun.
Food All
Check out the table full of food — I tried to make foods that were colored like the new In Colors.  I think it worked quite well.

Food Lost Lagoon Katie
This was my favorite food item.  I found these on Pinterest.  I used Onion & Chives Cream Cheese and added food coloring to get the Lost Lagoon color — spread it on crackers, added some gold fish crackers and a little broccoli and VIOLA — under the sea, under the sea.  Loved these.

Food Tangelo Twist Food Mossy MeadownFood Hello Honey


Tangelo Twist was an Orange Fluff Salad, Mossy Meadow was cucumbers with a veggie cream cheese topping and Hello Honey was Caramel Apple Dip. 
Food Blackberry Bliss
But the best In Color food item was our beverage for the evening — Blackberry Bliss was Sangria which was loaded with blackberries, raspberries, cherries, mandarin oranges and other goodies.

No, we didn't just eat all night long — we did do some stamping too.
Come back and check out our cards over the next few days.


Happy Anniversary

Since Monday was my wedding anniversary I thought this card was a good one to show you today.  This card would be great for an anniversary or for a wedding card. 

I love how the Scalloped Tag Topper is used for the wonderful folded edges on this card.  The designer paper is the new Lullaby and the stamp set is Something to Say.
