Fresh Fig-Happy Birthday thinlit

     I love this Happy Birthday thinlit.  It is stylish, fills up the card front and says it all.  It looks pretty hard to attach to a card front without making a mess don't you think?  Well, Stampin'Up! brought back their Multipurpose Adhesive sheets to help with that problem.  And being a person that has a hard time throwing out things I might be able to use someday, I had some that I kept.  

1. First you cut a piece of the adhesive sheet the size you need.

2. Next peel off one side of the sheet and attach it to a piece of card stock that is just a tiny bit bigger.

3. Cut the design you want on the big shot making sure the adhesive side is down.

4. Peel off the other side of the adhesive sheet and your design now has adhesive all over it and will stick easily to your project.

  If you have not stored any for these past few years, then order some and you will love using them.  

What a fun in-color week this has been.  Come back on Monday to see samples of what people will be able to make at my new catalog Premier to be held also in July.

Tranquil Tide-Eastern Medallion Thinlit

  I love the simple look of a monochromatic card.  How about you?  This card features one of the new in-colors and a favorite thinlit. Can you picture this card make with each one of the new in-colors?  This would make a great gift in a cute little envelope box for a friend.

Lemon-Lime Twist-Crafting Forever stamp set

 When I saw this stamp set I thought it spoke to me and a lot of the people who come to my classes.  And when I saw this color, Lemon-Lime Twist I immediately felt it was my favorite. So, why not make a card and put them together.

When I get a new package of Baker's Twine I hate to use it because of the kinks that are in the twine.  So, the first thing I do is to wind the twine around a clothes pin that looks exactly like this stamp.  When it is time to use the twine there are no more kinks.

Powder Pink-This Little Piggy stamp set

 Does this pig make you smile like it does me?  This was a set that we received free at the On Stage event I went to in April.  Do you notice something different in the background of this card?  It is the new embossing paste.  At first I was not sure what to think, but now that I have used it.....I love it.

Supplies used to make this card

What could you make with this fun color and embossing paste

Come back tomorrow to see what I made using Lemon Lime Twist and the stamp set called Crafting Forever.

Berry Burst-Colorful Seasons stamp set

  Last week instead of stamping, I was visiting with my 10 year old granddaughter Haley.  What fun I had.  When each one of my grandchildren turn 10 they come and spend a week of fun with grandma.  Now, Haley is back home in Ohio, and I am ready to share my cards for the in-color class I will be holding in July.

First in-color is Berry Blast.  This card is smaller than the normal sized card and features quite a few new items, in Berry Blast of course.
