My goodies arrived this week and I LOVE the new Summer Mini products! I think for me, getting "the goods" early is one of the best Demonstrator perks (other than the big discount!) This card uses the new Island Oasis Designer Series Paper. When I saw this pattern I immediately thought of the Cheer's to You stamp set! Hope you like it!!
I love this little card for all the tiny details. The card base is Whisper White cut to 4.5 squared. A Chocolate Chip Scallop Square cut out with my Big Shot was added and my White Gel Pen added some faux stitching. The Old Olive cardstock was cut to 4" square and run through my Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder (my favorite!) My image is was stamped in Jet Black Stazon and colored with my Aquapainter and ink pads.
What do you think? Does it make you want to say "tweet!" too?!
I really love the way this one turned out!
My card base is Kraft, followed by a layer of Very Vanilla I ran through my Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder. I rounded the corners with the Corner Rounder Punch. An Old Olive Satin Ribbon was added under my Rose Image which was matted on Rose Red cardstock. Some Hemp Twine finishes it off!

There will now be four color families of 10 colors each: Rich Regals, Soft Subtles, Bold Brights, and Neutrals. Now, before all you Earth Elements Lovers like myself freak out...they have kept most of the colors, just rearranged them into other families.
We will now have 5 new In Colors each year and they will stay for two years. So we will have 5 new In Colors this year, then next year an additional 5...the year after that the 5 from this year will retire and 5 more will be introduced, and so on and so forth.
SO...big question you may have, what colors are staying and which are going?
Kraft (renamed Crumb Cake)
Not Quite Navy
Night of Navy
Pretty In Pink
These are Retiring:
Taken with Teal
Close to Cocoa
Returning In Colors:
Riding Hood Red
Daffodil Delight (warm yellow)
Cajun Craze (spicy Orange)
Early Expresso (warm, rich brown)
Cherry Cobbler (rich red)
Marina Mist (cool, clear carribean blue)
Sooooooo.....stock up on the retiring colors you love and get ready to fall inlove with the new color palette! I'll post pictures as soon as I can!!! Email me at saucystampin at yahoo dot com to place your order today!!
I sent in my Artisan Award entry last week and this was one of my reject scrapbook pages. I am not a huge scrapbooker although I really enjoyed working on it for my entries and think I may do ore of it in the future! This page is one of the ones I made but I decided to go with something different for the contest. The picture is one I took in Venice when my husband and I went for Carnivale in 2006, just after he returned from a deployment (we were stationed about 40 minutes outside of Venice at the time.) It was a really fun trip, although after a year apart a trip to the grocery store was relaly fun if we were together! I hope you like it!
