Card sketch #196 for Paper Craft Crew - polka dots & a butterfly



Here is the current Paper Craft Crew card sketch challenge #196, which I used for today's card: 
http://www.papercraftcrew.com/pcccs-196-card-sketch/

Here is the card I am submitting:
 
The Stampin' Up items I used are:
Thoughtful Banners
Old Olive and Marina Mist cardstock
Butterflies Thinlits
Blossom Bunch Punch
Large Polka Dots Embossing Folder
Wink of Stella Clear
White and black cardstock
Rhinestones
White ribbon

I used a sponge dauber to sponge on my background of old olive and marina mist polka dots....can you tell I love polka dots?!

Here are a couple of closeups of my card:


If you look real close at the picture above, you can see the butterfly shimmers with the Wink of Stella, and that I sponged marina mist ink on the two flowers. And that I ruched (ruffled) the ribbon.

Stampin' Up Retiring list and pic of new catalog


 

Just wanted to remind you that this is the last month that you can order anything from Stampin' Up's retiring list.  Many items are already gone or in limited supplies...

And next month the new Stampin' Up catalog comes out - here is a little peek of the front of it:


There will be new colors, new items, stamps, etc.!  If you join Stampin' Up as a demonstrator at my online store, you can preorder new Stampin' Up products before the catalog goes live! Getting new catalog products* early is exciting AND helpful to you as a demonstrator. It lets you prepare samples and stamping events so that you can start strong when the annual catalog goes live on June 1. 

Since demonstrators share ideas using the new products, new demonstrators get to choose preorder products (including host sets!) for their Starter Kit. You’ll find more ideas for the preorder on the Stampin' Up website, and you can visit the exclusive Resources page to learn more about the annual catalog, if you join now!

You can join just to have fun, get discounts, etc. for yourself, sell to your family/friends, host classes, and get invited to special Stampin' Up activities and events!  What I really like about Stampin' Up is that they do their homework and offer a high-quality and good selection of the most current products and ideas, plus you can earn trips and other incentive prizes.  Just try it and join and see if you don't agree!

Happy Mother's Day! Scrapbook pages for purple wedding book

Happy Mother's Day!
As I mentioned in my previous post earlier this week, I have been busy with making a purple satin wedding scrapbook for my son's wedding (their wedding colors were purple, gold, white).  I shared pictures of the book in the making, and here are the inside pages of it and a few closeups (many Stampin' Up products, of course!):
