New Catalog Open House

 The new Big 2011-2012 Catalog is out!! And brimming with wonderful stamp sets, paper, new "IN" colors added to last years, and so much more!

  Here is a simple card made using the new "In" color Island Indigo, and the DSP Beyond the Garden, which was featured in the Summer Mini, but is ALSO in the NEW catalog too.. I simply cut around one of the floral designs, and added our wonderful rhinestones.. scalloped punch the edge and added another strip of DSP to inside edge. I am a blue person, and this card is so clean and fresh .
 For this one, I used punches only. The new Doily Triple Layer Punch, and the Lace border punch, which again came out in the Summer Mini and is Now in the New Big catalog.. You get three looks from the Triple layer punch, to play and have fun with your designs. I made this to resemble a lace table cloth, and cut around the edges. All colors are the New IN colors.
 Beach time fun! Used the stamp set Summer Splash which is in the Summer Mini catalog, you can order this only through Aug. 31, and then it is retired.. I had fun brayering the sky and ocean, made and tore my sand piles, and Crystal Effects on surfboards and all.. Love how this came out...
 This stamp set is also featured in the Summer Mini -Fabulous Flowerettes, but is also in the New Big Catalog. I used water color paper, heat embossed the flowers with our new colored embossing power, and water colored the flowers, sponged the background. This is such a pretty card, for all occasions..
 I love this Postage stamp look, using the "Pretty Postage Stamp Set', and now there is a punch just for punching out these wonderful pieces, called Postage Stamp. I have other stamp sets that I can use this punch on, and know there will be more in the future.. These tiny little cards perfect for gift giving fit our small envelopes as well..
 I used the embossing folder "Flower Garden" to create this embossed design, then I water colored it using our Aqua Painters (I love these) Eyelet border edge, and the DSP is from Beyond the Garden both in the Summer Mini and the New Big catalog.. I am so glad that they included lots of product from the Summer Mini into the new Big catalog..
Pendant Parade stamp set coupled with the punch, Petite Pendant Builder, makes this card a snap to make, I used all the NEW IN colors. and the DSP is, Just add cake.  Eyelet border and the word saying is from Swirls and Curls hostess set from the Summer Mini catalog, only available till Aug. 31.
 My husbands Fathers Day card, using the stamp set Countryside. I also used DSP Just Add cake. I used the 1/2" circle punch to punch out the letters that are on this DSP paper, mimicking type letter keys.. the tag is made using the onboard "Merry Medley", so many choices there to create so many different looks..
This card is using one of the New In colors Pool Party, and the DSP "Flirtatious Specialty" paper, with it's two sheets of lazer cut paper, and using the Lace border punch, stamp set Swirls and Curls. So fun...
