New Catalog!

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the lack of posts, I have been really busy filling in at work with everyone going on vacation. But overtime means more money for STAMPS - LOL! Speaking of stamps.... there are a whole bunch of new stamp sets in the BRAND NEW 2010 - 2011 catalog which went live today! You can see the whole thing online by clicking on the catalog on the left sidebar, or better yet get a FREE HARDCOPY when you host a workshop with me. They are also available for purchase for $9.95 plus postage just contact me to make arrangements to get your's. This new catalog is AWESOME! The hostess sets are amazing and the new accessories will be so much fun to play with. I really love the new book, but don't just take my word for it...check it out!

For today's card I wanted to use some new goodies from the catalog. The stamp set is a level 1 hostess set called Because I Care and is one you can choose for FREE when your workshop or personal order qualifies. The main colors I chose for my cardstock and background were chosen using a new fun tool available for purchase called the color coach. It has large samples of all the cardstock colors and color combination suggestions on the back. The one I went with for my card are all new ones called, MARINA MIST, CAJUN CRAZE & CRUMB CAKE (love this color!) The color coach replaces the color wheel and is so much better! The color samples are a huge 2 3/4" x 4 1/2" Here is what the color coach looks like:

Here is today's card

I LOVE this new hostess set! The hydrangea flower is so detailed and pretty! I stamped the main flower bloom in versamark and colored it using pastels. I used a layout design from splitcoast stampers - card sketch 284. Here is a cool tip for the card sketch layout... Click on the picture itself and it will enlarge to the exact size of a standard card so you can get the measurements for each panel using your ruler!

To make this card:

Stamp Sets: Because I Care hostess set, Pocket Silhouettes

Paper: Stampin Up! Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Whisper White

Ink: Stampin Up! Classic ink pads in Marina Mist, Whisper White, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Chocolate Chip (sponged the edges of crumb cake)Versamark
