Joy in a Box!

Yep -- I got my Holiday Mini Pre-Order today!!!! Oh, I am SO excited! I was waiting by the door all day for my UPS guy (am I pathetic, or what?). I will be busy making samples with my new goodies so I will have lots of ideas to post once the new Holiday Mini goes live on September 1st. Believe me, you will want a copy of this mini catalog. Call or email me today, and I will be happy to get one into your hot little hands!

I am booking parties now for the Fall. Call or email me today to get your preferred date. Off to play with my new stamping goodies!

Vintage Medallion card

I just love the vintage look of this card! I stamped the En Francais background stamp in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla cardstock. Then, I stamped the Medallion background stamp in Cherry Cobbler ink over top of it. I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink to give it an aged look. I layered this piece onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. I used the new 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Basic Black, but I sponged the edges of the ribbon with Crumb Cake ink to age it. The words "Here for you" are from the Friends 24-7 stamp set. I stamped them in Basic Black ink, then punched it out with the 1" circle punch. I also sponged Crumb Cake ink around this circle, then layered it on a 1 1/4" Basic Black circle. I wrapped the ribbon around the center, then used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the circle. All of this was layered onto a Cherry Cobbler card. The front of the card was dry embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions folder. I hope you like this! I am just loving these vintage-looking cards! Crumb Cake is a MUST for your stamping supplies -- very versatile, and great for creating an aged look.
