Introducing the New 2016-18 InColors!!

Back again after a couple of crazy weeks here at my house! Back, if I don't say so myself with an awesome card. Here's my card--

This picture just doesn't do these new InColors justice, they are truly a delight for the cones and rods in your eyes!! I used some of the new sets that I pre-ordered, Swirly Bird and Layering Love. Most importantly I incorporated all of the 2016-18 InColors.

Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy
Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum

The Sisters in Stamping have more cards and projects using the new colors, scoot on over there and take a look.

See you next week! Happy Stampin' -- Karla c(:

Well hello there! Welcome back to my blog, today's Sisters in Stamping post is all about surprises, here is my project for today--

 I used the Hamburger Box die (#133724), which by the way is retiring AND it's on SALE for $21.50 through to the end of May. The Ribbon, Pool Party 1/4" cotton (#134568, $6.00), the Designer Series Paper Schoolhouse (#138187, $11.00) and the stamp set Perfect Pennants (#133227) are also on their way out. The surprise is in the inside.....

It's a Birthday Celebration wish "to go"! A chocolate cupcake, candle and match to pull together a small Birthday Party.

Thank-you for coming by! Happy Stamping, Karla c(:

Late Lovely as a Tree

It's Jennifer's turn this week over at the Sisters in Stamping blog, and we are focusing on Trees. Here is my card--

Sorry, the card is a bit late this week, went to take a picture and the batteries were dead in my camera. Every year about this time I get nervous about seeing Lovely as a Tree on the retirement list...but, it made the cut again this year YEY!!!! I'm really loving this color combo- Pear Pizzazz and Bermuda Bay! And best of all this ribbon and stamp set have been carried over to the new 2016-17 IB&C.

Contact me today for your very own copy, happy Stampin'!

A little late this week, computer problems! The Sisters in Stamping theme this week is Flowers! Here is my card--

This stamp, Vivid Vases is retiring. I stamped the image with Basic Black Archival ink on So Saffron card stock and used the White Gel Pen (#105021, $4.00, retiring supplies limited) to color the daisy and the daffodil. The other flower colors were done with markers.

We will be talking about more retired sets and accessories next week, see you then!
Happy Stamping, Karla c(:

Punch Art Birthday Bee

Well, hello! The Sisters in Stamping are making projects with Punch Art this week. Here is my card--

I used the Petite Pairs stamp set and the Hexagon punch to make this Birthday card, it was just natural to make a little punch art Bee to go with this layout.

Last week-end I attended a crafting class at my church here in Yankton, this is what we made: 
 Is'nt it the cutest?? Laura K. taught the class and she cut all of the wood pieces out for us ahead of time. We could paint them and decorate them any way we wanted, it was too much fun-- thanks Laura!!! Anyway, all week I kept thinking about the Bee on my flower, and I used him as inspiration for today's card.
Here is a close up picture of my bee (I couldn't resist putting googly eyes on him like the ones on my card).

Thank-you for coming by today...see you next week for some special projects using the Clearance Rack.
Happy Stamping, Karla c(:
