Everything New card Buffet-At Home with You

  When I made this card I wanted the door to be the focal point and I wanted to show off the Wood Textures designer paper.  

1. The door is cut out with a thinlit and the window part of the door is also.  There is another piece I did not use on this card that will make the door so it can open to reveal something on the inside.

2. I love the message at the side of the door.  Can't you think of  a few people that message applies to and they are not necessarily family.

3. I thought this might be a good card to send to a male.  It seems I have a lot of cards and stamps that have a definite female look to them so this card appealed to me as one to send to a special male in my life. My husband is the one I think of immediately.  We have an anniversary coming up in October and I think he would love this card.

What a fun week this has been sharing the cards that were offered in my card buffet.  Next week I will be sharing cards made with items from the new soon to be current Holiday catalog.  When I looked at that catalog I wondered how I would be able to afford all the stamp sets I love.  Come back on Monday to see some of my favorite items from the Holiday catalog.

Everything New card class- Lemon Zest

 How do you feel about the new in-color Lemon-Lime Twist?  As you can tell by cards I make, I love it.  It is vibrant, colorful and stands out on any card you place it.  Have you also noticed that it is a popular color in clothing right now.  That is how Stampin'Up! decides what the new in-colors should be.  

1. Parts of this stamp (the lemon and the leaves) can be punched out.  Yea love it when I don't have to hand cut items.

2. There are actually 6 lime slices on the background piece.  3 are made full strength and 3 are stamped before reinking the stamp.

3. The little strip of Foil Frenzy Specialty designer paper actually has some strips of Lemon-Lime color in between the black.  I thought it was gold until I got a really close look.

  Can you tell I gravitate towards simple cards.  You don't need much on your card to make it stunning.  This card was created by my upline Robin who had all the supplies ready for us to recreate the card.

  The final card for the week will be make using the set called At Home with another matching thinlit to help cut out the items in the set. Come back tomorrow to see it.

Everything New card buffet-Lovely Inside and Out

  What catches your eye with this card?  

1. The colors 2 of which are new in-colors.  Lemon-Lime Twist, and Berry Burst.

2. The hugs and how it seems to float on the page.  When you made the card you find out the secret.  (It has to do with the matching thinlits)

3. The boldness of the color combinations.

Thanks to a card sample posted by Sarah Newick from Essjay cards I was able to create this card.

Tomorrow I will feature a card we made at a Butterfly Friends meeting a month or two ago featuring the Lemon Zest stamp set.

Everything New card buffet-Coffee Cafe


  I looked all over the stamp set for the coffee image when you spill or drip your coffee.  At first I thought maybe I had already misplaced one of the stamps, and then I looked at the designer paper.  Cute!

1. The designer paper is called Coffee Break and I love the colors: Early Espresso, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Soft Suede, and Whisper White.

2. The leaves surrounding the saying are cut out from one of the sheets of designer paper.

3. The copper ribbon is also new to the catalog.

This makes for a simple but cute looking card and was created by Dawn Olchefske.

Tomorrow I will feature a card made with the Lovely Inside and Out stamp set and matching thinlits.

Everything New Card Buffet-Lovely Friends


   Have you ever been all set to do something and then you can not get on the Internet for some unknown reason.  Well, that happened more than once last week to me.  But glad to say the Internet is now up and running so here comes some great cards this week.
  I had an Everything New card buffet last week and have chosen 5 cards to share with you.  Most of the items are new.

1. The stamp set is great with sayings and cute 2 step flowers.  Lovely Friends is the name.

2. The Color Theory designer paper stack is the background of this card.  If you have not ordered this yet, on of the things I love about these 6 by 6 paper stacks is they are not attached with that gummy label on the bottom.  

3. The card was inspired by a posting on Pinterest by Billie Moan of Rambling Rose studio.

Tomorrow I will show off a card using the Coffee Cafe stamp and Coffee Break designer paper.
