Asian Artistry Sample

I just got a box of sneak peek items in the mail today!! I am like a kid a Christmas when I get a new box of stuff! This card uses Asian Artistry and Kind and Caring thoughts (Since somehow I ordered the spanish version of Asain Artistry, I didnt have its sentiment to use, at least not in English) So, I used Kind and Caring thoughs, Another Sneak Peek set. The background stamp is Asian Artistry also, the colors are Old Olive and Melon Mambo, I also dyed some ribbon with my melon mambo reinker and if you look carefully you can see how inpatient I am, I had to put my ribbon on the card before it was compeltely dry, so now, I have Melon Mambo finger prints on my card, lol. Oh well! It just adds charachter! I colored the flower with my copics (gosh I love my copics) YG63 - Pea Green and RV34- Dark Pink. Happy Stampin!

Another Stamp of the week: Scene in a garden

This is another sample from the Scene in a Garden, stamp of the week. I used the new soft suede, chocolate chip and some more of the Autumn Harvest Rub-ons. I water colored the ground using soft suede, crushed curry, dusty durango, and a tad bit of old olive. I just love these Autumn Harvest Rub ons, they are sooooo pretty, it's not even officially summer and yet I am ready for the crisp air of fall, er, maybe it actually feels like fall out side, what is that anyway?

I think that these colors came together so prettily.

Last Chance Items I am going to miss the most!!

I am really going to miss some of the Last Chance stuff from the retiring Stamin Up! Catalog. While I can't wait for you to see some of the new stuff coming out, that means we have to say good bye to some of our favorites!

10. The Big Shot Starter kit was an excellent way to get your big shot and all the stuff you need to get started, including some dies to start with. If you dont have your big shot yet, you might want to take advantage of this last chance kit.

9. Simply Scrappin Kits - I love the Simply Scrappin kits and there are some really great ones coming out next month, but sweet nothings was my favorite, I am really going to miss it!

8. Key Tag Punch - Being in the military, I always thought this key tag punch made perfect dog tags! Unfortunately, you only have two weeks left to grab this punchie before its gone!

7. Tattoo Kits- These little buggers are perfect to entertain the kids at craft shows and I have been known to break them out and let the kids play with them while I am teaching their parents or hosting a workshop.... I am really sad to see them go, but even more sad to see they are not being replaced with new ones!

6. Scene in a garden, is the featured set this week, I really love this stamp set, I dont think I am going to part with it, even after it retires.... Maybe it will be on the dormant list (one can only hope ;)

5. Designer papers- I just cant get enough of these, Paper is what got me started in this hobby to begin with...Some of favs that I am really gonna miss: Candy Lane, Parisian breeze, Sweet always

4. The Free and The Brave - I love this set, again, since I am in the military, this set comes in very handy for promotions and military things and its perfect for making cards for heroes! I promise though, you are gonna like the new military set. But, dont forget to grab this one if you can!

3. I am really going to miss Bella Rose and Raspberry Tart, they are so pretty and I wish they were sticking around, I just dont feel like I have had my fill yet! I am actually going to miss these two packs of paper more than the ones listed in #5

2. Soft Summer - This great set is in the occassions mini and is not in the new catty! Again, I hope it makes the dormant list, cuz I really dont want to give it up! It is so versatile and pretty!

Finally, the thing I am going to miss the most, when we bid adieu to the current catty is..............
The In Colors, almost every one of them! Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette, and Pacific Point, I could cry, having to say goodbye to these great colors!!!

Do you have a favorite thats going away? Don't miss your last chance to grab them!!!
