Take a peak at Stampin' Up!'s new Color Renovation that will occur with the new catalog that comes out in July.  I love the changes.

My neighbor recently gave birth to twins (a boy and a girl).  I wanted to make a card so I did what I always do, surf the blogs of some very talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators for ideas.  When I came across Robin Merriman's card here I decided that I would  CASE (copy and share everything) it and make individual cards for the twins. They were so easy to make and look terrific.  It was created using the "Fox & Friends" stamp set and the "Sweet Pea" DSP (designer series paper).

Baby Card & Bag

The card below is a CASE (copy and share everything) of a card that I saw a long time ago when I first started with Stampin' Up!.  I never saved the name of the person that designed the card so I can not give her credit.  I did, however, change the DSP (designer series paper) so it is not exact.  I love the bib card which I've seen on a lot of blogs.  I gave these to my husband's neice at her baby shower.

This is another better late than never card. I decided to make my daughters Confirmation invitations and I used a card a made previously (here) and changed it up a bit and this is what I came up with. I used the stamp sets "Vintage Vogue" and "Special Blessings" to create the stamped images. I really like the way it turned out.

Better late than never.  These are a couple of Easter cards that were part of a class I did back in March.  The chocolate bunny was stamped with versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The effect was awesome, but not visible in this photo.
