I have been having fun playing with some of the new items from the summer mini catalog. Here I used the Elements of Style stamp set along with our Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions Big Shot folder. To highlight it I spritzed it with some of our lovely Golden Glow Smooch Spritz. I used some of our retiring colors, Close to Coral and Taken with Teal. Great colors but I can't wait to play with many new colors come July! If you would like to make sure you get a new catalog come July send me an e-mail and I will let you know how you can get one!

We had a Chat and Challenge on SUDSOL the other night. I love them because the challenge my creativity and I make new friends.
They gave us the layout and instructions to make it in monocramatic colors. This is the card I came up with. I like how the butterflies look like they are flying around. This is one of our single stamps, All a Flutter, in our summer mini catalog. If it is a stamp that you would like in your collection just give me a call and we can order it up for you.

I was so excited when the Summer Mini came in and I saw the level one hostess set – A GIRAFFE! There were so many wonderful sets to choose from but, needless to say, I had to have It’s the Thought in my collection.
For “Enjoy the Journey” I started with More Mustard card stock and put it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions folder.
I stamped the giraffes in Close to Cocoa using the masking technique, which can be found on SUDSOL along with tutorials for countless other techniques, to give it depth. I colored around the giraffes using a blender pen and So Saffron and More Mustard markers to replicate the savannah. I used the cutter kit tool to distress the edges a little and then mounted that on Close to Cocoa. I used an antique brass brad and clip and Soft Suede ribbon for embellishments.
My “For You” card, using the Elements of Style stamp set, started with a base of Always Artichoke, a layer of Not Quite Navy impressed again with the Square Lattice – Love these Impressions folders! And embellished with a strip of Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon. I used the Big Shot – a very versatile little machine – and the Top Note to cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie and Very Vanilla card stock. I stamped the Baroque design and the “for you” statement using Always Artichoke and Pumpkin Pie markers. For the Humming bird I stamped it first with Close to Cocoa and then used the Rock and Roll technique I stamped it with Night of Navy. I also brushed the edge of the Very Vanilla with Night of Navy using a sponge dauber. Before I mounted it and before I added the statement I used our new Smooch Spritzer in Gold and gave it a few spritzes – Love it! So elegant. I popped the statement with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Isn't he just so cute? But then I am biased, I just love giraffes. I made this using our Definitly Decorative Decor Elements, we have an animal for every letter. The branches that he is eating come from the XL Bird Punch that was in our Occasions Mini Catalog and has been carried over! The wheat images (both behind the glass and in front of the glass) come from the Autumn Days stamp set. If you would like to recreate your own wall hanging using one of our Decor Elements just let me know and I would be glad to help you out.
Also, if you leave a comment or sign up to subscribe to my blog I will be having a drawing at the end of this month for some Blog Candy!
