New In Colors!

Hello again! I really like today's card. It uses three of the brand new 2011-2013 in colors: Wisteria Wonder, Island Indigo, and Pool Party. All five of the colors are gorgeous, but I really like these three together. This card also uses the Blossom Bouquet Layering punch from the summer mini catalog. It is not a standard sized card (at least not for me). It is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card which is quite a bit larger than my usual 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, but I decided to try something different just for fun. Here it is- enjoy!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Happy Greetings (summer mini)
Paper: Wisteria Wonder, Island Indigo, Pool Party, Whisper White
Ink: Wisteria Wonder
Accessories: Blossom Bouquet layering punch (summer mini), Big Shot, Lots of Tags sizzlit, Wide Oval punch, basic rhinestones, white taffeta ribbon (dyed using my Wisteria Wonder ink pad) Pin It

Card Class Preview

Hello! My apologies for not posting in a while! We had a little "incident" with our camera. My son knocked it off the top of our curio cabinet and broke it and we had to buy a new one, so I had a couple of weeks where I couldn't take any pictures. Let's face it- blog posts with no pictures just aren't much fun! I hope that you are enjoying the summer weather! We have had HOT weather here lately, but it has cooled off and been absolutely beautiful the last few days, so no complaints from me! To try to make up for not posting regularly, I have a HUGE post for you today. These are the cards that we will be making at my masculine-themed card class tomorrow afternoon. I always find masculine cards to be a challenge, but I am really happy with how this group of cards turned out! Enjoy!
