Bella!

I received a small pre-order last week of preview items from the upcoming Stampin' Up! catalog. As demos, we only get to see a few stamp sets and the new In Colors plus a couple of accessories - the majority of the catalog will be a surprise to me too (and I can't wait to see it!!).

Here are two cards I made using a new stamp set called Dreams du Jour, some absolutely yummie designer paper, Bella Rose and a few of the new In Colors!

The above card uses Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red In Colors with Whisper White cardstock and Bella Rose dsp. I dyed vanilla taffeta ribbon with RH Red ink, and used one of the new buttons from the Button Blossoms. The scallop circles were cut & embossed with Nestabilities. I used Copics to color in the image.

Supplies for this card are the same (minus kiwi), except I used the Key Tag punch to round the edge of the sentiment and the Photo Corner punch. The image and sentiment are stamped with Chocolate Chip classic ink.

I am loving the new Bella Rose papers. They remind me of my grandmother's house - specifically her linens. I haven't even cut into my most favorite pieces with larger floral images. Lots of polka dots and roses, yum-o! I'll share more as I have time to stamp.

happy stampin'
