Sneak Peek: Friends and Flowers

Chocolate Flower
(and that is what it smells like!)
I had some new people come to my class yesterday.  It was fun to get to know them and share some projects.  We made some simple cards I had been working on.  One of my goals has been to learn to design simpler cards that I can use in workshops and classes for less experienced stampers.  As you know, all the detail I put in my cards drives Lil T crazy because I never can finish one in 10 minutes or less for our Friday challenges.  So I promised him I would practice.  Here is the card we made yesterday.  I think he would be proud of me.

I love this Designer Series Paper.  It is from the new catalog, which goes live on Thursday, July 1st.  The paper is called Greenhouse Gala, and coordinates with card stock in the new In Colors Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait, as well as the new Cherry Cobler, from the Regals Color Collection.  I think you are going to like these colors.  Of course, color preference is so personal, I can really only say that I like them.
I used Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, and stamped the image in Pumpkin Pie as well.  The stamp is from a great new set called Friends Never Fade.  The Greenhouse Gala DSP has coordinating images. 

So that is the card.  Easy Peasy, yet very rich.  That is one of the great things about Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers.  They help you put a project together in a snap.

I would show you a picture of the stamp set and paper, but I am not allowed to do that until the 1st.  I can only show you things I have made from the new merchandise.  I wouldn't want to spoil the surprises in the catalog anyway.  It is best if you can take some time to sit down with the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog when you get it.  And just savor the experience.  Drooling allowed.  If you don't know how to get a copy of the new catalog, you can order one by clicking on the button on the right sidebar starting July 1.  If you are in the Albuquerque area you could just come by and get one–email me at 
I will be posting the other simple card we did in class yesterday as soon as I resolve some technical difficulties in the photo department.  Check back for another look at some new colors.
