Gingham Garden Sneak Peek for CCMC249

Greetings, Stampers! Boy, am I excited about this week! I received some goodies in the mail the other day from my Stampin' Up sneak peek pre-order and I can't wait to show them all to you. That's one of my favorite perks about being a Stampin' Up demonstrator. So I spent much of the weekend playing with my new stuff, and the rest of it trying to re-organize my craft room and make room for my new stuff!

There are lots of fun new products in today's card. The stamped greeting is from the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set. The DSP is called Gingham Garden and I absolutely adore it! Last but not least is that little strip under the greeting, Gingham Garden Washi Tape. I love Washi Tape!

I haven't played along with the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary in a while. This week's sketch was a fun one, and all those layers were perfect for showcasing my new favorite DSP!

Do you love all this stuff as much as I do? I can't stand it! The adorable greeting was colored with markers and then cut out with an Ovals Framelit. The popped up little "is" was a happy mistake. I put the entire card together and not until then did I realize I forgot to marker the "is". No problem, I inked it separately, and punched it out with a punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.

I can't show you images of the stamp set yet but it's coming soon! The new Stampin' Up Annual Catalog will be released on June 1, but you can get a copy from me now!

Love the new products and the way you used them with the sketch. I especially like how you used the different colors in your stamped sentiment and the way you separated "is". Thanks for joining us this week at Create with Connie and Mary!

I love your card and all the gorgeous colors and patterns combined!! I think that the "is" is emphasized much more by having it popped up! ..a happy accident!! Thanks for joining us this week at Create with Connie and Mary!
