Last summer when the new catalog was released, I ordered the Swirly Bird stamp set and coordinating dies. I saw tons of ideas everywhere online and this is one I really wanted to make. Annnnd then, ya know, life. ha... So this past week I made it!!!
I don't have a greeting assigned to this card, but I like the bold colors and the fun design!
Stamps: Swirly Bird
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Real Red, Pacific Point
Paper: Pacific Point, Whisper White card stocks
Accessories: Big Shot, Swirly Scribbles Dies

What do you think? My favorite part is that I got to stamp! haha!

Blog Hop: Stepping Up with New Products!!

June has arrived and summer vacation is definitely underway at my house! It has also warmed up significantly, so I guess that means summer is here!
Today is a big day for Stampin' Up! A new catalog is released at noon today! Unless you have a demonstrator who has already delivered a paper copy to you... *wink.

Being a demonstrator means we get a chance to pre-order some items. Usually I do order a few things to have a little head start, and today's post definitely shows that! I have new In Colors (one of them anyway), new stamps, new dies, new paper and even a new ribbon! This is a super cute bundle- the stamps and the dies, and the paper that was designed to work with the set too! There is SO much potential with this set and I can't wait to show you even more of it!

So for today, I have a simple card first. I like it. It was pretty quick to make, the longest part was stamping off to get the paler pink flowers!
Stamps: Colorful Seasons
Ink: Berry Burst, Crumb Cake
Paper: Berry Burst & Whisper White card stock, Color Theory DP

And my stepped up version! I changed up the background color. I didn't stamp anything beyond the greeting. I die cut the branches and the flowers! And I added the cute ribbon too.

Stamps: Colorful Seasons
Ink: Berry Burst, Crumb Cake
Paper: Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Berry Burst & Powder Pink card stock, Color Theory DP
Accessories: Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon, Dimensionals

What do you think?
...I promise the cards are the same size, the angle of the picture is just weird, haha.
My card sketch is based on THIS sketch from TGIF Challenges, a week or two ago.

Anyway, we have a lot of stampy inspiration lined up for you today, so be sure and hop all the way thru! And leave us your thoughts- we all appreciate comments on our work!
