CPC Winner - Sneak Peek - Really Good Greetings

First off, I just drew the name of the free April Craft Project Central subscription.  The lucky winner is Diane!  Congratulations!  I'll be contacting you soon! ***EDITED - Diane, I just checked your blogger profile, and there is no contact information.  Please email me by clicking the "Email Me" icon in the left column.  Then, I'll get back with you to get your information so you can get access to your subscription.***
 
I LOVE being a Stampin' Up! demo!  I get to play with new product before the catalog comes out!  I just received my new toys yesterday, and got to play.  I also got the new catalog, and I can tell you now...you're going to love it!
 
I used two new products on this card.  The greeting is from a new stamp set called Really Good Greetings, and the DSP is called Gingham Garden.  I love the colors in the DSP.  They are so pretty together!  The card is pretty self-explanatory, but a couple things you may not be able to see in the picture is that the stamped image layer and the greeting layer were both attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The bow was attached with a Glue Dot.  The remainder of the supplies used is listed below.
 

Stamps:  Really Good Greetings and Summer Silhouettes

Ink:  Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade, and Island Indigo Classic pads

Paper:  Melon Mambo, Island Indigo, and Whisper White card stock; Gingham Garden DSP

Accessories:  Big Shot, Labels Collection Framelits, Fancy Fan Impressions folder, Large Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Daffodil Delight 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, and Glue Dots

A Round Array Mojo Monday Card

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I'm so excited...I finally got to do a MojoMonday sketch on Monday!  :)  It's been awhile!  The sketch is MOJO290.
 
I embossed the 5-1/4" x 4" Summer Starfruit card stock layer with the Honeycomb Impression Folder (p. 6 in Spring Catalog).  I then attached a 5-1/4" x 2" strip of Print Poetry DSP Stack (p. 16 in Spring Catalog) to the bottom of the embossed layer.   I punched out four squares from a scrap piece of Crumb Cake card stock with the 1" Square Punch (p. 183), and then embossed them all with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder (p. 189).  I then attached them to a 4-1/2" x 1-1/8" strip of Primrose Petals card stock, with the bottom of each square lined up with the bottom edge of the Primrose Petals layer.  I then attached it to the top of the DSP strip, making it flush with the DSP edge.  I then wrapped a 7" piece of Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon (p. 172) around the top of the DSP and attached the ends to the back of the piece.  I then attached the whole thing to the Raspberry Ripple card front (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece, folded in half).
 
The stamp set I used is the new catalog sneak peek set, A Round Array.  I stamped each image onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  The "for you" stamp was stamped with Gumball Green ink, the medallion-type stamp was stamped with Primrose Petals ink, the "you make me smile" stamp was stamped in Summer Starfruit ink, and the "be mine" stamp was stamped in Raspberry Ripple ink.  I then punched them all out with the 7/8" Scallop punch (p. 16 in Spring Catalog). 
 
Don't forget, until May 30, you can purchase the A Round Array stamp set and 7/8" Scallop punch together as a BUNDLE FOR 15% OFF!  You have the choice of purchasing it in English, French, or Spanish.  You can purchase the stamp set by itself, too, if you already own the punch.  You can only purchase it in clear-mount right now.  It will be offered in wood-mount, along with clear-mount, in the new catalog when it comes out May 31st.
 
Attach the dahlias from the In Color Dahlias pack (p. 175) to the center of three of the scallop circles, using a Glue Dot (p. 177) on each of them.  I attached a Raspberry Ripple dahlia to the Gumball Green one, a Summer Starfruit dahlia to the Primrose Petals one, and a Gumball Green dahlia to the Raspberry Ripple one.  I then attached each of the scallop circles to each Crumb Cake square using a Stampin' Dimensional (p. 177), as shown in the picture.  The last step was to tie a 9" piece of the Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon into a bow, and attach it to the right side of the ribbon already on the card with a glue dot.
 

Stamps:  A Round Array stamp set

Ink:  Gumball Green, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit, & Raspberry Ripple Classic ink pads

Paper:  Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Crumb Cake, & Very Vanilla card stock; Print Poetry DSP pack

Accessories:  Big Shot, Honeycomb Impressions folder, Perfect Polka Dots Impressions folder, 1" Square Punch, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch, In Color Dahlias, Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Glue Dots, & Stampin' Dimensionals

My CPC Project and Win a Free CPC Subscription!

Today's Craft Project Central project is designed by...ME!  I really hope you like it.  I sure had a lot of fun making it.
 
Do you have an extra special family picture that you’d like to display, but are getting tired of the plain-frame look? Here’s a way to show off your family picture and your creativity! This is a 10" x 10" scrapbook page inserted into a shadow box.  Putting it into a shadow box also enables you to use a lot of dimension that would normally be too fat for a scrapbook album! This project can easily be customized to the colors of the room you want to display it in. It would also make a great class for National Scrapbooking Month!

Lacy & Lovely Birthday Card

Today's card was one of the cards made at my camp last Friday.  I had a great group of ladies attend, and we had a lot of fun!
 
I CASEd this card from a fellow demonstrator, Elisha Smith.  I loved the way she stamped the images from the set, Lacy & Lovely (p. 99).  The card is not only cute, but it's fast, too!  The biggest image was stamped onto each end of a Whisper White strip with Pumpkin Pie ink.  The next biggest image was stamped in-between them with Melon Mambo ink.  Then, the second-smallest image was stamped three times onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock in Rich Razzleberry ink, and one more time in Melon Mambo ink.  The smallest image was then stamped three times onto the scrap piece of Whisper White card stock in Island Indigo ink.
 
Two of the Rich Razzleberry images were then punched out with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch (p. 186), the Island Indigo images were punched out with the 1" Circle Punch (p. 186), and the centers from the last two images were punched out with the 1/2" Circle Punch (p. 186).
 
One of the Island Indigo circles was attached to the center of the left large Pumpkin Pie circle with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 177).  The small 1/2" Rich Razzleberry circle was attached to the center Melon Mambo circle with a dimensional, and another Island Indigo circle was attached to the bottom left of the right large Pumpkin Pie circle with dimensionals.  The last Island Indigo circle was attached to the center of one of the punched out Rich Razzleberry circles with SNAIL Adhesive (p. 177), and then they were attached in-between the left Pumpkin Pie circle and Melon Mambo circle with dimensionals.  The small 1/2" Melon Mambo circle was attached to the last punched out Rich Razzleberry circle with SNAIL adhesive, and then attached to the center of the right Pumpkin Pie circle with dimensionals.
 
The greeting from the Loving Thoughts stamp set (p. 138) was stamped on the upper left of the stamped Whisper White layer with Melon Mambo ink.  Then, two strips were punched out from Melon Mambo card stock with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch (p. 185).  Half of each border was attached to the back of the Whisper White stamped layer on the top and bottom of it, making sure the other half shows from the front.  Then, the whole thing was attached to the Pumpkin Pie card front.
 

Stamps:  Lacy & Lovely and Loving Thoughts stamp sets

Ink:  Pumpkin Pie, Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, and Melon Mambo Classic ink pads

Paper:  Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, and Whisper White card stock

Accessories:  Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, and Stampin' Dimensionals
