Share What U Love

And I LOVE this new paper!! You really cannot appreciate this new Designer Paper until you see it in person. I know what you are thinking-- $ 27 for paper!!!??? But ladies it is worth every penny. It is chosen from handpainted backgrounds and almost every page has a glimmer or shine to it. It is much thicker than other DSP and would be great for many 3D projects. Here are a few sample cards!

The flowers are just fussy cut from one of the sheets of the sheets of this gorgeous paper!

Check it out HERE 

You will also want TO SHARE WHAT YOU LOVE. Linda

Step 3- Repeat step 2 using  Coastal Cabana reinker
Step 4- Repeat Step 2 with Lemon Lime Twist

New Ink Pad Video

As most of you know, Stampin'UP! has changed the design of all of their ink pads. I love them--- much easier. It is a little bit of a learning curve, but totally better than before.I thought this video may be of some help to those who have not had a chance to use them yet! :)

Whats Wrong With MY Stamp???

There is nothing wrong with it. The Disinktive rubber stamps are a new way of stamping! This was first introduced by Stampin'UP! in the 2018 Occasions Catalog! Remember these beautiful cards?
That's what gives that flower that "distinct" 3D image! Check out this video of a new stamp set called "Healing Hugs" Pg 110 and it is soooo pretty! This kind of stamping technique cannot be found anywhere else!

Showstopping Paper Pumpkin Meets Broadway Bound

The Paper Pumpkin team has thought long and hard about how they might create a bridge that will allow you the customer to the additional products that Stampin’ Up! has to offer, and they are happy to announce a solution that they think you’re going to love: a kit that coordinates with a product suite in the 2018–2019 annual catalog.
Because perfectly coordinated products have always been one of Stampin’ Up!’s key strengths- they designed June’s Paper Pumpkin kit as a stepping stone to the spectacular Broadway Bound suite on p. 68–69 of the 2018–2019 annual catalog. Wooh!
This uniquely designed June kit and coordinating suite give you the opportunity to expand your experience from crafting with a single kit to creating with a full range of products offered by Stampin’ Up! . . . and this in turn opens the door to their being able to discover more about Stampin’ Up!’s full product line. 
The deadline to subscribe for the June Paper Pumpkin kit is June 10, 2018 11:59 PM (MT). 
Click HERE to learn more about Paper Pumpkin! Current subscribers will get this kit at their doorway after June 11th. :)

Coincidentally- our Fall Stamp Camp theme is "Broadway Here We Come".. wink wink! More details about this event soon!!! :)
