With all of the fabulous Stampin' Up! products to choose from...sometimes it is difficult to decide what to share with you!!!
As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I have the opportunity to earn great products, FREE! I have been saving myGreat Rewards points, and decided to use some of them to get the Pretties Kit. I was so excited to receive my "Pretties Kit".
Wow!!! When I opened that box, I was so excited to see the beautiful die-able flowers, pearls, crystal beads, hat pins & rhinestone brads. There are endless possibilities with this box full of great products. Do any of you have this bad habit of wanting to "save your goodies & not use them" . This one is just too great not to use!
This card uses Sage Shadow cardstock for the base. I punched a 1 3/8 square, cardstock in window is Very Vanilla. The background is stamped with a BoHo Background stamp and I accented the swirls & flowers with my Signo Gel Pen. Flowers were stamped with the One of a Kind flowers in Versamark & punched with the BoHo Blossoms punch. Sentiment from One of a Kind stamped in always Artichoke. Ribbon is White Taffeta. The beautiful flat back pearls are from the "Pretties Kit". It is a MUST HAVE for all you Stampin' Addicts out there!!! . I will be creating more products with my Pretties Kit, and plan to use of of the die-able flowers in a project, soon. I hope you enjoyed today's card, as always I welcome your comments. All supplies Stampin' Up!Have a fabulous day!

The stamp set used was Wanted, Cardstock is Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, & Very Vanilla. Stars are punched with the small star punch.
The 2nd card used the All Holidays stamp set & Classic Stars Jumbo Wheel. Inked with Night of Navy. Cardstock is Night of Navy, Real Red, & Whisper White. The large star is On Board Chipboard from the OnBoard Simon Upper chipboard assortment. We inked the chipboard Summer Sun Craft ink using sponge daubers. We found it inked up nicely with two coats. While wet, sprinkle with clear embossing powder and apply heat gun. We then punched a hole in the chipboard with the Crop-a-dile, and tied on Navy Grosgrain Ribbon. With a different sentiment, this card would be great for graduation, or a birthday card. All supplies are Stampin' Up! Thanks for looking!

The proud mother-to-be is expecting a boy...and she plans to decorate his room with the cutest little zoo animals. So, It is only fitting that the shower theme is "Zoo Animals". So I put the elements of both into the final design!

I have been up since 4 a.m.. Just couldnt sleep...so,I have my coffee, comfortable chair, and lap dog. It looks like the beginnings of a beautiful day.
I had a little stamping time yesterday, and have some projects in the works. But, I thought I would share this Mother's Day card. Just one more week to get your project done.
On this card, I used Basic Black ink. That is the only color of ink used on the card. The flowers are stamped with the Pick a Petal stamp set. I went over the images with my 2 Way Glue Pen, and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds. Greeting is from the All Holidays stamp set. Cardstock is Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, & So Saffron. Also used gold brads, Whisper White ribbon, & retired Black Organdy ribbon. All products are Stampin'Up! Have a great day!
