Morning Cup 'o Joe

Good Monday morning, everyone!  This is not a new set from this Annual Catalog; however it's a new-to-me set.  I debated whether to get this set for the entire past year that it's been out.  I finally decided to get it when I placed a big enough order to qualify for the extra $50 Hostess Dollars (do you and/or your friends want to put your orders together and qualify for more free products?!!!  If so, contact me and I can help you!).  I just love this sentiment.  It's so true, especially for me, living in the mecca of Starbucks.

You may notice that the watermark does not say my name.  No, it's the name of one of my downlines.  I made her come over couple of weeks ago while prepping for the Card Buffet to help make some samples for me.  Aren't I a slave-driver of an upline? LOL.  This card is CASE'd from Becky.

My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Morning Cup
Ink: Early Espresso
Papers: Early Espresso, Baja Breeze, Summer Starfruit, Patio Party DSP
Accessories: Fancy Flower punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, Circles #2 die, Blender Pen, Square Scallop border punch, Stripes embossing folder, Modern Label punch

Flourishing Butterfly

As soon as I saw this card by LeeAnn Greff, I just had to get off my bum and make this card.  It was that inspiring!  I have just now realized this photo is a bit blurry.  Argh.  So sorry!

I resisted on getting this new butterfly punch, but I'm glad I caved.  Isn't it so graceful?  There's no special techniques here, which makes this a wonderful beginner's card.

My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Flowering Flourishes, Made for You
Ink: Versamark, Crumb Cake
Papers: Soft Suede, Pool Party, Neutrals Paper Stack
Accessories: Elegant Butterfly punch, Basic Rhinestones

Mixing with Flowers Again

I know this is not a new set, but in midst of playing with all my new stuff, I kinda missed playing with Mixed Bunch, so I decided to bring it out again.  This card is inspired by Lesley.  I put the flowers on different layers, 1 with no dimensionals behind, just glue; 1 with one layer of Dimensionals; and 1 with 2 layers of Dimensionals.  Leaves are from the Two-Step Bird punch, and the sentiment is simply punched out with Word Window punch.  Easy peasy card, and so lovely.

This card was offered at my Card Buffet last Sunday.  I added a Designer Printed Brad in the center of the Wisteria Wonder flower.  Adds even more pizzazz!

My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Mixed Bunch, Fabulous Phrases(sentiment)
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Wisteria Wonder, Basic Gray
Papers: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Gray, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder, Stripes embossing folder, Two-Step Bird punch, Blossoms punch, Word Window punch

Check out those extra large pearls.  Did you know we have these in the Annual Catalog?  I think they are just the perfect size for this extra large blossom, what do you think?
