Baroque and BoHo

This is one of the swaps I posted in the "group" picture yesterday. Baroque Motifs is the gorgeous new stamp set (can you tell I love it?) combined with two new In Colors© Groovy Guava and Purely Pomegranate, as well as Taken with Teal. The new In Colors© are just beautiful! It's easy to make an elegant statement with a card made using the Baroque Motifs set which is a part of the Tapestry group in the new Style Watch section of the catalog.
WooHoo!! The Bronc Buster is making an appearance! This set is also part of the new Style Watch section of the Fall/Winter Collection 07 titled "BoHo West". It is basically western with some touches of bohemian added; it reminds me of the style elements of historic homes and clothing I've seen in the western part of the United States from the 1800's...western with a little Victorian vintage edge to it! I'm lovin' it! : ) On this card you'll see several new Stampin' Up!© products: new Photo Corner Punch; the Outlaw Designer papers (corner punch); new Star punch; Bronc Buster stamp set of course; and the NEW 5/8" grosgrain ribbon in Chocolate Chip (under the horseshoe/star emblem punched out with the Key punch). There is a nice selection of new colors in this wider grosgrain! The small star is from the set Starstruck which was new last year, and just fits in the Star punch perfectly!

We are going to have so much fun using all these new goodies!! : )

Wishing you a good weekend!

Swaps, swaps...

Here is a picture of some of the swaps I've done for the Stampin' Up! convention. These are for an online group and I had to do two different cards, 27 each, plus some small "3-D" (not cards) swaps.

This is a close-up of the 3-D swap, which is actually a gift card holder that looks like a little purse. It is made using the 5-in-1 Card Cover template as a pattern. I know many of you have this template from a class we did last fall, so here is another great use for it!

I used that wonderful new Uptown Designer Paper and the stitched Wasabi grosgrain ribbon. It is SO pretty!

I'm not through moving yet but had to take some time to stamp for Convention which begins on Monday! : )

Hope you are doing well. I look forward to seeing everyone soon!

Hello from mover-ville!


We've moved into our new (to us) home and I'm still unpacking boxes. I'm so sorry to have been MIA for so long, but this moving thing has been quite overwhelming! I now have telephone, cable and internet access again too! Neither my phone nor email changed so you can still contact me the same as always.

The new Fall and Winter Collection (aka catalog) is out and it is a beauty! I can't wait for you to see it, and all the great new stamps and products for us to enjoy! So many great stamps, accessories and tools to play with and make cards, scrapbook pages and items for our family and friends and those with whom we wish to keep in contact! You'll love it too!

If you wish to get one, please let me know. You can also see the Collection online at but it's much more fun to have your own copy in your hot little hands! : )

I just received my first order from the new Collection yesterday! New ribbons and stamps and inks, OH MY!! : ) Now, for time to use them! : )

I hope to have some things to post for you soon, in the meantime, keep on stampin'!
