The Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is almost here and the new Seasonally Scattered stamp set will finally be available - September 1st to be exact! The set includes three images and each one is great for the upcoming holidays - Christmas, Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day.
I used Versamark and gold embossing powder for the Merry image. The Christmas stamp is from another set from the Holiday Catalog called Watercolor Winter Too. I embossed it using the Cherry Cobbler embossing powder.
Here's my Valentine's version:
If you look closely at the "dots" around the word 'love', some of them are hearts! Too cute!
It's so easy and simple because the stamped image does all the design work for you!
Here's a great Thanks version for the fall. It's hard to see in the picture but the mat card stock and
the flower in the middle is Blackberry Bliss. It's such a deep purple
and it's one of my favorites! (This was a "cased" card - copy and share
everything - from Craft-somnia Momma.)
Well, what do you think of Seasonally Scattered? Is it on your wish list now? Mark your calendars for September 1st - that's when the Holiday Catalog launches!
I'm so excited about this fun and very versatile stamp set - What's Your Type. When you first take a look at the picture of the set, you may wonder what in the world to do with it. That's what I thought the first time I saw it. Then I started playing with it and look what I came up with!
So excited with how the treat bag turned out! Can you tell which images I used to make the word "Boo"? I guess the "o's" are pretty easy to figure out but you can actually make the entire alphabet with this set! The What's Your Type stamp set is in the current Annual Catalog on page 160 and on page 161 is a picture of the entire alphabet that you can create with this set. I can't wait to play with it more and make more fun geometric shaped letters and words!
The white and Tangerine Tango Trim is also a new product that's coming out in the Holiday Catalog. Look closely at that kitty cat. It's from another fun Halloween set
(sneak peek alert) from the upcoming Holiday Catalog called Freaky
If you're looking for versatility and creativeness in a stamp set, this is it!

For the birthday card, I cut my Real Red card stock to 11" X 4 1/4", scored in the middle and folded it in half. I then used Pacific Point for the mat cut to 3 5/8" X 4 7/8". I stamped the "It's Your Birthday" image from the Big News Stamp set in Real Red on Whisper White card stock (cut to 3 1/2" X 4 3/4").
For the balloon, I used the Circle Framelits and the Big Shot die cutting machine to cut out a circle and then I adhered just a portion of the balloon on the card stock. I cut off the extra. The punched the white dots from Whisper White paper using a hole punch. The Baker's Twine is tied to an upside-down heart. Fun! Fun!
I don't know about you but there's just something about getting away for the weekend with friends! This past weekend I hosted a stamping retreat for my downline in Weatherford and we had a blast! We laughed, we cried, we stamped - what could be better?
I'm calling these ladies my Get-Away Girls! Sometimes we all just need to get away for awhile to decompress. I'm already looking forward to our next retreat! (Plans are in the works for a spring get-away!)
Can you tell by the laughs and smiles that we were enjoying ourselves?
Olaf was with us, too!
Always nice when there's plenty of room to spread out and get crafty!
Below are just a few of Marilyn's card creations she made during the weekend! Love ALL of them!
Connie was a Christmas card making machine!
What a fun time with friends! When was the last time you got away for a weekend with your friends? It might be time for you to plan a weekend get-away and enjoy the benefits of gathering together!
