The eyes and nose are pieces from another shape diecut. The mouth is pieces of two different punches.
The background card stock is Tangerine Tango, one of the new IN COLORs. I dragged it with Pumpkin Pie ink. The other colors are Chocolate Chip, Only Orange, and Creamy Caramel. Isn't it FUN!?!?!??!?!?
I'm having another eye procedure done tomorrow, but hopefully in the afternoon, I'll get at least one scrapbook LO up for you. :)
Until then, TAKE THE TIME TO STAMP SOMETHING!!!!

Well, it's time to start showing you a sample every now and then that I made to showcase a couple of the new sets. I'll start with this one; it's the only one I've made with this Level 3 hostess-only set, but it has LOTS of potential - I can't wait to start using it! :D
The colors are So Saffron, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, and an IN COLOR, Tangerine Tango. :) Just stamped, colored with markers, and used my favorite ticket corner punch.
The colors are SO happy together!! There are a LOT of things that can either be stamped to be on the windowsill, or seen outside the windowsill, with this stamp set. Those things are ALSO perfect for TAGS!!! :) We'll be punch-happy around here for a while! LOL!
Well, I'm going to leave you in peace now - but I wanted to share with you. I'm LOVING hearing from all of you! If you're local, and would like my class schedule - or if you're not, but would still like to receive my newsletter! - please email me! I LOVE my stampers; they're the BEST in the world. :)
Thanks for dropping in! And I hope you're finding time to STAMP something!! :) BE BLESSED!

Well, around HERE, we're waiting for our first order from the new Idea Book & Catalog to come in - so we did a Retired Stamps Quick Card Class yesterday. I'm going to share all four of them today, because they're great layouts, great cards, and I don't want to drag them out since you can't get the stamps anymore! :D
Here's the first one. Since all the stamps are retired, I'm not going to bother telling you which sets they were - if you see something you'd like more information about, just email me!
Colors are Pink Passion, Only Orange, and Green Galore. Whisper White card stock, too, of course. And see that white grosgrain ribbon? We used our Green Galore Stampin' Write marker to color just the edges of it. It helps bring in that lovely green color someplace else. :)
Oh, and the scallop on the bottom is the new Scallop Edge Punch - how fun is it?!?!? So simple to use, too! :) It's been a very popular item already!
This one was one of my all-time favorite stamp sets. :) We stamped him in Stazon and colored with Stampin' Write markers. Colors are Real Red, Basic Black, and Whisper White.
You'll notice that wonderful awesome Ticket Corner Punch. :D I just love that thing....:D
This one I LOVE. I loved ALL the SKETCHES-type stamp sets, and especially this stamp with the girl looking out to sea. It can be SO many different emotions!!!

The set is new, FRESH CUTS - it's the one that came out as a sneak peek in May, and coordinates with the laser-cut envelopes....
Colors used are Pacific Point - a new IN COLOR - and Gable Green and Blush Blossom. The little medallion is made from punches from the Boho Blossom punch. Inks include Gable Green, Pretty in Pink - Blush Blossom didn't show up well enough! - and White Craft. I distressed the edges of the two layered pieces - this feels shabby chic to me, no? :D
OK, off to work - have a class tomorrow using RETIRED stamps! :) So, I'm doing LOTS of stamping here - what are YOU working on?? You are stamping, aren't you??? Well, then, TAKE TIME TO STAMP SOMETHING! :D Have a wonderful day!

While we're waiting, here's another scrapbook layout from class last month. It's another 6x6:
It was my favorite layout. :) We used Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, and Whisper White card stocks. The set is A BEAUTIFUL THING, We stamped the solid image with Summer Sun first, then did the Chocolate Chip detail over top. The punches are done with the 5 petal flower punch - the first time we've used it in a class, and I just LOVE it!!! We layered the Old Olive underneath the Summer Sun one to give it more of a flower feel, and put a brad through to hold them together. Then, we put them on the page with dimensionals, so that corner of the photo can still go on the mat. The three Whisper White flowers are for either journaling or smaller photos.
So, what are YOU working on??? I would love to hear from you! :) MONDAY IS ON ITS WAY - I hope you're taking the time to STAMP something!

Colors are Bashful Blue and Almost Amethyst. We stamped the dragonfly from INFINITE GOODNESS - the Level 2 hostess-only set from the CURRENT IB&C; if you'd still like to earn it, we have FIVE DAYS to get your party order in! :D - in Bashful Blue on the card stock, then took the Almost Amethyst Stampin' Write marker and outlined its wings.
We then stamped him in the same ink on vellum, and colored in the wings - then embossed with Irridescent Ice embossing powder. Because even classic ink dries slowly on vellum, we were able to use it to emboss, and vellum embellishments are HUGE right now! :D Then, we cut them out and bent their wings up, and stuck them down. Oh, and used the ticket corner punch on the mats. Simple and easy, but appropriate for a LOT of subject matter! :)
So. I'm waiting and working and WAITING.... :) What are you doing? I sure hope you're taking the time to STAMP something.... ;D Have a WONDERFUL day!
