The Flower Shop stamp set with its matching punch is a must have from the new catalog. 

There are so many fun new products on this card: Candy dots (the calorie free kind), washi tape, two new stamp sets (Flower Shop and Four You), Pansy punch (no, it's not even remotely a pansy -- don't get me started...) and Gingham Garden designer series paper.

Colors are Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy and a little bit of Pear Pizazz.

Wetlands -- Clean and Simple card

The new Wetlands stamp set immediately caught my eye because I could see so many possibilities, especially for masculine cards and we all know what a challenge those can be!

For this card, I cut a square in a piece of paper using the new square framelits.  Then used temporary adhesive and attached it to my Whisper White layer of cardstock.  A little sponging, a little stamping, and it was done.  Super easy, no extra postage required, and it looks good too.

Too Kind trio

Too Kind is too easy to use!  It's a great two-step stamping floral set -- probably my favorite kind of stamp set.  I couldn't decide which embellishment I wanted on this card: washi tape (love it!), bakers twine or the new chevron ribbon.  Any thoughts?

Can you see the spots on the background? Those are from another new set called Gorgeous Grunge.  I think it's going to be a super versatile set.

Sketched Birthday -- Telescoping card

Nope, I'm not quite done blogging...just haven't done it lately.  Anyway, I have a few cards to post, so there will be some new posts for the next few days.   One of my favorite new stamp sets is Sketched Birthday.  This is the first card I made with it and I can tell it'll be a fun set to use.

Once I figured out what colors I wanted to use for the layer, it was a snap to make the various circles with the new Circles Collection of Framelits for the Big Shot.  The Designer paper is Quatrefancy Specialty paper.  The "Carbs, Schmarbs" is from Yippee-Skippee!
