Christmas in July

With all the retailers getting on the bandwagon of Christmas in July, I thought 'what the heck'! So, here's the deal. Purchase $50 (before shipping & tax) from July 25 through July 31 and receive either Basic Rhinestones or Basic Pearls (page 188 of the catalog) FREE with your order. You will need to call or email to place your order. All orders will be placed on August 1 and I will call you when your order arrives. This card uses the new Vintage Christmas Suite colors of Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla. If you look closely, you can see the pearl on Santa's hat and the rhinestones are used for the snowflakes.

Call or email between July 25 and July 31 to get your FREE rhinestones or pearls!

New Catty Launch Party

I held my launch party last night and although the sales weren't overwhelming, the attendees seemed to have a great time and they said they learned something new, so that's something!

This is the first card we made. We used Peach Parfait, Whisper White, Concord Crush, Pear Pizzaz, Poppy Parade & Blushing Bride cardstock. We also used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Whisper White 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon, the 1 3/4 inch Scallop Circle & 1 3/4 inch Circle Punch and Concord Crush ink for the saying. The saying comes from the Level 3 Hostess Set Occasional Quotes.

This is the second card we made. This one uses Daffodil Delight, Basic Black & Whisper White card stock. We stamped the flowers from Elements of Style stamp set with Jet Black Staz-on ink and watercolored using Daffodil Delight & Old Olive classic ink pads & blender pens. We then spritzed the Whisper White card stock with the Daffodil Delight marker. We also used the Scallop Trim border, the 1 3/8 X 5/8 inch oval, the Scallop Oval Extra Large punches for the tag (that saying is also from Elements of Style), and the 1/8 inch Daffodil Delight taffeta ribbon.

July Challenge Card

This was my entry into the CSL (Crazy Stamping Ladies - my upline's group) monthly challenge for July. We were to use the colors Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler & Very Vanilla (sounds like dessert, doesn't it?).  I used the Scallop Trim Punch, the Scallop Circle Punch, the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, and the Modern Label Punch . I also used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and 'distressed' it a bit with a sanding block. And I tied it all together with 5/8" Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon. I didn't win the challenge, but these were fun colors to work with. Thanks for stopping by to take a peak!
