Is anyone else NOT ready for Thanksgiving? I hope that I'm not the only one. Today was a girls day shopping in Madison. We found some Christmas presents and had lunch at Chili's. Chris and Alyssa, amongst others, still have birthdays in December so it feels like my shopping never ends.
Last weekend I participated in OnStage for Stampin' Up! It was a weekend filled with demonstrations, business tips and lots of other goodness. We get a chance to order some product from the upcoming January Mini Catalog!
During one of the sessions, we get to make a card with a SU! person. They let us know the color and size of the cardstock and dsp that is being used in the card so we can make our own. Here's what we did.
This was a smaller sized notecard. Cinnamon Cider is the base. The dsp is almost too pretty to cover up too. I do like the Misty Moonlight and white color scheme.
Isn't the floral dsp just gorgeous? I like the coloring on the flowers. Reminds me a little of of Hand Penned. The "Thank You" is stamped on a small piece of the dsp paper. Normally I don't do things like that so it was good to do something new. Those floral borders are super cool. Can't wait to use them some more!
This is my favorite card. It's Shaded Spruce with Misty Moonlight. We colored the flowers using just the edge of a dauber. Another new way of coloring! Super glad these flowers have dies to match. The ribbon is a denim ribbon that is coming out.
Isn't it fun getting a look at new product?! For me, one of the highlights is being able to see the new catalog!! I am in love with this new catalog. My pre-order list is going to be super long. It's going to be hard to keep it to a reasonable size.
If you are in need of the new catalog, let me know. I'll make sure you get one in December.
Until next time...Stampin' Always,
