Wow! I finally had a little time last night to sit down and play with the brand new revamped Color Coach and BUY was I ever impressed! Look at this fun combination of Elegant Eggplant, Baja Breeze, River Rock and Rose Red. I never ever would have come up with that one on my own, but I love it! It's perfect for this card.
What's that you say? What's that stamp set with the cute "happy birthday" that fits so adorably in the Wide Oval punch? Well, let me enlighten you! It's a new favorite of mine, called Perfect Punches, and it's coming in the new catalog July 1st. Below are two more samples made with it, both with color combos from the Color Coach.
Some of you are scratching your heads trying to figure out what punch I used to make the flowers. Search no longer--it's the Stampin' Up Blossom Party exclusive die for the Big Shot! It's my favorite flower die for that nifty machine and I use it all the time.
Anyway, back to the punch set. Isn't it cool? Love the "Congratulations" stamp that fits in the Modern Label punch... and I'm gonna get a LOT of good out of the "friend" one that fits in the Curly Label punch! There's several more stamps in this set and you'll be seeing them in the next couple of posts.
Ahh.... so happy Baja Breeze is returning. Those of you who know me IRL (in real life) know I'm all about turquoise in any shade. Half the shirts I own are some version of aqua. I'm going to treat myself to a blog makeover/update if I earn the Alaska trip and I've decided it will have to reflect my love of that color!
Hey, if you have (kind) suggestions for improvements or additions to the blog (other than videos--don't even ask) I would welcome them. Leave a comment on this post by June 28, 2010, at noon, and just to make it fun, I will throw in some blog candy to encourage feedback! After a random drawing on the 28th I will send one lucky winner any single stamp of her choice from the Summer Mini. Check out page 31 of that catalog, and leave your comment pronto, along with your choice of stamp should you be the winner!
