Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey, Oh My!!!!

 I told you all I have really fallen for this new Stampin' Up color called Blackberry Bliss, and the Hello Honey looks perfect with it. I created these 3 cards today. The first card uses the honeycomb embossing folder, the banners framelits dies, Moonlight designer series paper and several sizes of SU circle punches
     The middle card featured here uses the new Hexagon Hive die on pg 228 of the current catalog. I love this die, but I cut it out of white and tried to sponge color it with Blackberry bliss ink. I think I should have just cut it out of Blackberry Bliss cardstock instead. The paper used is from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper and the punch is the Blossom punch and stamped with Mixed Bunch stamp set. I just love any and all stamp sets with a matching die or framelits. I think either of those things make card making a breeze.
     The last card used the same Moonlight Designer Series Paper, banner framelits, and the Perfect Pennants stamp set on pg.16.

Kind Koala

 OMG, couldn't you just eat this little koala bear up. I think it has my vote of the cutest thing in the new Stampin' Up catalog this year. I used the new $6.95 Designers Series paper stack called Moonlight, trimmed a tag to size, added the layering banner framelit dies and I was all set. The second card features more of my favorite new in color-blackberry bliss and the new honeycomb embossing folder. In this picture the color seems hard to see, but it's so luscious in person.

Summer Birthday Cards

 I whipped up these little birthday cards for my two cousin's that have birthdays very close together and almost always celebrate together. The second card uses my new favorite Stampin' up color combo-Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey. I also used the Stampin Up new starbusrt framelit dies with this one and the matching stamp set called Starburst Sayings.

Little bird, little bird

 Here are a couple of new cards I have made with the new Stampin' Up wood grain embossing folder and the ever so popular bird builder punch. I did the first card as a 41st anniversary card and the next one for my dear cousin who has always loved birds.
