A Fabulous Peek

The NEW Stampin' Up! 2013-14 Idea Book & Catalog is being released today, and we have been waiting on pins and needles to put our orders in! But lucky for you Stampin Up! has given the Demonstrators some advanced time to pre-order some new stuff and the Sisters in Stamping  have been playing with paper so they could show you. Here is my card for today--
I used a new stamp set called Mosaic Madness, it has a coordinating punch. The colors are So Saffron, Basic Gray and a NEW InColor called Strawberry Slush. The side stripes were done using a new accessory Epic Day This and That Washi Tape.

The Happy Birthday Wishes stamp is from a Hostess set called Simply Sketched and was stamped in Basic Gray ink. I used some rhinestones to glam it up some.

Thank-you for coming by. Go by the Sisters blog to check out what the others have made for you.

Happy Stamping,

Masculine Cards from the Sisters

It's my week at the Sisters blog and I picked Manly cards for our theme. Here is my card for today--
I used the Tastefully Trim die for the BigShot to make my waves. I picked some Masculine colors for this weeks post so that it would fit with the  Sisters in Stamping theme but, really you could use any colors. I think the brads add a Masculine quality to the card too.

Thank-you for stopping by and don't forget that the end of the 2012-13 Idea Book & Catalog year is June 2.

Happy Stamping!

The Sisters Favorites for Friday

Hello- and Welcome! This week at the Sisters in Stamping blog we are making projects and cards using some of our favorite retiring stamp sets from the 2012-13 Idea Book and Catalog. The list was published a couple of weeks ago, but I'm still having a hard time looking at the list. It's always so sad to see all of the fantastic sets that are leaving! Here is my project for this week--
We did this cute sour cream container at the last Mother Daughter Stamping Night and it was a big hit! It is filled with M&M's and it makes a maraca like noise when it's shook. 
There are 4 bird cages in the stamp set, starting with the largest cage stamp using Night of Navy ink. I stamped them randomly on a 1/2 sheet (5 1/2x 4 1/4) of Naturals Ivory card stock. Use Sticky Strip (on the shortest end) and roll it up to make a tube. Pinch one end closed and seal with sticky strip. Fill 3/4 of the way full (not too full) and pinch the other end of your tube in the opposite direction, seal with sticky strip.
Thanks for coming by today!
Happy Stamping-- Karla c(:

Mother's Day Inspiration at Sisters

Hey, thanks for coming by today to take a look at the Fabulous Friday post! It's my turn at the Sisters in Stamping blog and I have picked Mother's Day cards as our focus for this week. Here is my card--

Inside it says Happy Mother's Day! But, any Spring occasion would fit. I spied this card last week from Candace and I was inspired. I used my Print Poetry pack of Designer Series Paper (again!) for the back drop and my new Paper-Piercing Pack Occasions (#127387, $7.95). It's hard to see but there is a flower shaped button and a rhinestone in the middle of the punched butterfly.

Thank-you for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
