New Catalog - new toys - new Ideas!

Stampin' Up! Released their new catalog yesterday... I have post-its throughout the book marking all the goodies that I would LOVE to get.  I will pace myself.... ok, maybe not so much, kind of "mid" pacing myself.  I put in a doozy of a first order, and got to take advantage of the new Hostess benefits, in the form of Hostess Dollars. You still have access to discounted hostess only sets, but there is no longer such thing as Hostess Levels, and you have the opportunity to purchase anything from the catalog - you aren't limited to only Hostess stuff!

I had a catalog Open House yesterday - I had a couple people stop by, we had a ton of fun! Anyway here are some of the cards that I made yesterday.  Please access my online store to shop for the supplies!

4th Of July Card
Whisper White, Night of Navy and Real Red Cardstock
Night of Navy and Real Red Ink
Various Shades of Blue Ink (for sponged background)
Greenhouse Garden Stamp Set (used the flower detail stamps for fireworks!)
Pennant Parade Stamp Set
Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set

Word Window and Petite Pennants Builder punches

For this card I stamped the red and blue fireworks, then stamped over top of them with the Stamp-a-majig in versamark, embossed them with Clear embossing powder.  I added a couple fireworks with only versamark to make the white fireworks.
