Step It Up Hexagon

Hi Stamping Friends.  This is a "step it up" card.  The one on the left was my original card, then I decided to step it up, with minor changes that make a big difference.  Can you tell the difference?
The changes are embossed background, popped up hexagons, and sentiment popped with a tiny glitter heart.

The colors are Coastal Cabana, Smokey Slate, and Whisper White.  The stamp set is Six-Sided Sampler, punched with coordinating hexagon punch.

Birthday Banners

Hi Stamping Friends.  I'm really loving the new Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper item #132993 from the new Occasions Catalog.  The banners are made using the sneak peak pendant punch which will be in the Sale-A-Bration catalog coming January 25th.  The colors are Pool Party, Baked Brown Sugar, and Very Vanilla, and of course the Designer Paper.  The banners are on the new Gold Baker's Twine (which is hard to see in the picture).  The sentiment is from Label Love, punched with the Artisan Punch.

Cupcake Dress

Hi Stamping Friends.  I had a chance to "play" with one of my dear friends over the weekend.  We had fun creating this cute card.  This reminds me of one of those "what's different in each picture" games.   We made the cards together with two minor differences.  Can you see what's different?

The skirt on the dresses are made using cupcake paper liners.  The colors are Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Naturals Ivory.  The side border is embossed using the new Scallops Textured Impressions Embossing Folder found in the new Occasions catalog (had to use something new!).  The dress form and top of dress are cut from the Dress Up Framelits, and the Wasabi background is cut from the Apothecary Accents Framelits, pierced with the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack and "pokey tool" aka Paper Piercing Tool.  Just a fun girly card!

Spiral Rose Flower

Hi Stamping Friends.  It's been a while since I've posted a video, but it was time!  I hope it's helpful on how to use the Spiral Flower Die featured in the new 2014 Occasions catalog.  The colors are Crisp Cantaloupe, Black, Whisper White, Pistachio Pudding, and a sneak peak of paper from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration event. The photo frame is from the On Film Framelit Die #132969 (page 18).  The leaves are cut from the Secret Garden Framelits #129372.

Hope you enjoyed the video.  Below is a snapshot of the image in the catalog.  Notice the icon to scan?  Use your smartphone to scan the image (from the catalog or from this screen), and you'll see a video made by Stampin' Up! (Didn't see it until after I made mine -- I spritz my paper, they don't ... once you get your die, try it ... let me know which works easier for you.)
