Happy Birthday!

Good evening stampers!  Now that the holiday season is just about over it's time to get back to business!  Thankfully I was gifted several new pieces of Stamp-n-Storage for Christmas so I now have plenty of room to store all of my gorgeous Stampin' Up! products.  Just as soon as I have it all organized I'll take some pictures of my workspace.  

My project tonight features the Cupcakes & Carousel's DSP stack and the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.  I LOVE this suite!  It's probably my favorite in the new Occasions Catalog.  

See that adorable little Pool Party bow?  That little cutie was created using the paper bows from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.  To achieve the look above I used 4-1/2 of the Pool Party bows from the embellishment kit and adhered them together using Glue Dots. If you would like to create one of your own- remember to stagger the loops!  Otherwise you will end up with a blob and not a bow!

Thanks for stopping by!  If you have not yet received your copy of the new Occasions Catalog and the Sale-a-bration brochure be sure to let me know!  I'll get one in the mail to you!

Monday Montage #84

Hello there and welcome back for the bi-weekly Monday Montage blog hop. I'm so happy you joined us!  Be sure to visit all of the stops to see what other fabulous projects we have created to share with you.

My project for tonight was inspired by Frosty the Snowman.  I was asked to create favors for a  Christmas dinner with a snowman theme so I thought these would be perfect!

Can you believe that this little snowman hat measures less than 3" tall?  It really is TINY!  To make it functional as a treat holder I added a 3" x 6" Gusseted Cellophane Treat Bag that was filled with my favorite treat- Chocolate!  This would also be cute filled with festive colored M&M's or any other little candy treat.

Isn't it adorable?

Cupcakes & Carousels Sneak Peek!

Good evening stampers!  Several weeks ago while I was at OnStage I was able to check out some of the gorgeous new products from the upcoming Occasions Catalog.  My favorite suite from the entire new catalog was  Cupcakes & Carousels. I could not wait to get my hands on it!   

This suite contains the perfect combination of elements.  There are gorgeous color combinations, beautiful DSP, fun stamps and an awesome embellishment kit.  
Here are the first few cards that I created using this suite.  So gorgeous!  I made these 3 birthday cards for some very special ladies!  I hope they enjoy them as much as I do!  

Here is each card shown individually.  As with everything I create- I have a favorite.  I didn't like how the watercolor background came out at first but I gotta admit- it's grown on me immensely!  Calypso Coral is difficult to watercolor with as the color tends to change quite a bit.  More so towards the pink color family but overall it's still gorgeous!

While we are onto confessions here- tonight was the first time that I've used my Peekaboo Peach ink pad.  *GASP* I know!  Not sure what I was waiting for because this card is awesome!
I love the Bermuda Bay watercolor.  So pretty!

And last but certainly not least is this beauty!

Unfortunately I don't have a list of supplies created just yet- I will edit the post to add that info soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
