Day 2 of your tour!!!

Did you get through all 20 stops on the tour yesterday? There is some good stuff along the way. If you want to start at the beginning - head over to Janet Wakeland's blog and there should be links along the way...if there isn't - I have the entire tour guide list in order from stop #1 - stop #20 in my sidebar under "Remarkable Tour Guides."

Also, be sure to complete the two forms located at the top of my blog and email then to Janet for a chance to win great prizes. You don't have to worry, Janet isn't going to start to solicit you because she has your email - she just wants to give you the chance to win some cool prizes along the way!

Anyway.....I am going to show case two new stamp sets today. Both of these stamp sets, in my opinion, are two of the most versatile stamp sets in the new catalog! The first being Teeny Tiny Sentiments - How many times have you needed the perfect sentiment that would fit into a whole list of punches????? EXACTLY!!!! This set is absolutely for you!
The second set looks a little intimidating at first.....Circle Circus.....but believe me - this set can do so much for you...let alone it coordinates with the circle punches - HELLO.....does it get any easier????? This set will also make several different flower centers - luv that!! You can also use this set to give solid image stamps a "kiss." They are great images to glitter up before punching with heat and stick powder and glitter - I know you all LOVE glitter!!! Even the punched shapes can be made into flowers themselves!!!! I could go on and on here ( you know I!) But I will spare you my rambling......

Here it is:

I have to tell you - I have spent hours on cards...been in love with them, but today's card took me minutes....and I love it just the same!!! I am really trying to get out of my rut of everything looking the same.....does my stuff all look the same or is it just me???

Anywho - The card base is kraft. The wider horizontal panel is a new in color soft is so beautiful! The small torn panel is crushed curry - I rubbed the edges with the distress tool in the cutter kit. I tied a simple knot with the new in color polka dot ribbon in bermuda bay. YES - you heard me right...polka dot ribbon....but like I said yesterday - the ribbon is polka dot on one side and plain on the other. Great Job Stampin' Up!

The sentiment is stamped in soft suede. The circles from circle circus were stamped in bermuda bay, crushed curry, and soft suede. See how wonderfully they fit with the circle punches????? I finished off the bermuda bay scalloped circle with a vanilla button from button latte and linen thread.

Don't forget to hop on over to the next stop HERE.

Wait until you see the new addition to our family!!!

Welcome Butterscotch!

Now where is that picket fence??????? LOL!!!!
