I was feeling much more inspired today to create cards.
Yes...my box arrived yesterday and I've been pawing through my new toys!
The card was made with Fine Feathers (126517) and One in a Million (126382), the new In Colors Midnight Muse and Gumball Green (inks and papers), a fancy little Blender Pen, some 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon in Midnight Muse and Gumball Green (126847 & 126848 respectively), the Square Lattice Textured Impressions folder (119976) and, for those looking closely, a sneak peak item....the soon-to-be-out-in-the-Holiday-catalogue Ribbon Slides Designer Round (127834).
It was the perfect finishing touch for this card. And I love how the feathers really go with the 'above & beyond' sentiment...

I just haven't felt very creative lately...I'm eagerly awaiting my most recent order from Stampin' Up!, filled with lots of goodies from the current catalogue and a few from the upcoming Holiday catalogue (I love being a demonstrator!), and just can't seem to find the umph! needed to get a card right. I have lots of pieces and half-finished cards lying around, it looks like a gremlin got into my stamp room and played...only one little card out of the whole mess!
However, it's an important card...it's my friends birthday tomorrow, and I'm mailing it today (thank goodness she doesn't live far). I really hope she likes it!
I used the Patio Party DSP, Make a Cake stamp set, and my Nestibilities Labels set for the cut outs. The paper? I'm still waiting for my current In Color paper to match the Patio Party colors exactly, but I think the pink I picked out is pretty close to the new Raspberry Ripple color (which is coming later today...). I don't know if you can see the sparkle from the glitter, but its there! And the pretty label area, I used the thick double sided tape to 'pop' it up.

Lots of demonstrators have these, so I thought I'd throw it out there on my blog.
I've had a couple requests and filled a few spots for a ribbon share from the new Stampin' Up! Catalogue. Now I can only do this with US people, sorry, but policy forbids shipping current items across country lines for demonstrators.
2 yards each of the following colors: Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit.
If you're anything like me, you love ribbon. You may not always use it, you may hoarde it so you don't run out, you may piece it out in small precious bits on cards so you always have a little, or you may only need a small piece to go with your current color obsession. Me, I tend to hoarde and grudginly add it small bit by bit to cards. So, in the interest of saving your pocket book, because the ribbons themselves can cost almost $50 for each color grouping if you buy all the colors, here is my offer:
Shares run $12 each and include basic shipping, and 2 yards of each color listed, wrapped around a piece of cardboard to keep nice and neat. If you want both shares, the price will be $22, you save $2! If you want Priority Mail, you'll need to let me know and we'll bump the price up by and extra $5.00 ( Priority mail: 1 share-$15.00, both shares-$25).
Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and I can invoice you via paypal.
As soon as I have 5 interested parties, who have paid, I will order the ribbon, cut/wrap it, and ship it out asap. If more than 5 people respond, I'll be happy to start a new share.
