One Day Overlap Deal!

This is super exciting news you won't what to keep reading!

I'm super duper excited for the new catalog to go live!........the NEW catalog starts on Tuesday (June 2) and on that day, you can actually order from the NEW, the OLD, and the Occasions catalog!  
(the OLD and Occasions ends that day!)


Not really a special.....but kinda!  On June 2, when you can order from all THREE CATALOGS, you will get the OLD Hostess Rewards--even when ordering from the NEW catalog!!!  Beginning June 3, the NEW Stampin' Rewards program goes into effect.

So, depending on the size of your order, you will probably get MORE FREEBIES if you order on Tuesday!

Don't have a new 2015-2016 Annual Catalog?  Stop by my house on Saturday May 30th from 1:00-4:00 to pick one up.  While you're here you can learn a little more about Paper Pumpkin, do some stamping and have some pumpkin treats. 

Don't miss out, contact me right away.....I would be happy to place an order for you from any of these catalogs.

Have you seen the new 2015-2017 In colors?  They are real pretty in person and even though you think we already have several of the same colors, these colors really are different.  In the samples above, I have stamped using the Work of Art Stamp set, all the new In Colors in the center of the card, with two of the closest current colors on either side.   From left to right the colors are:  Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder (center), Cucumber Crush and Tip Top Taupe.  The matching Dotted Lace Trim is featured on each of the cards well. You only have to wait a couple of more days to start ordering all these wonderful new colors......June 2, 2015 in the day!

New Best Thoughts Hostess Set

Created by Stacey Cogswell

Here's another card using the new hostess stamp set Best Thoughts and all but one of the new 2015-2017 In Colors.  I stamped the flower image onto water color paper and then stamped it two more times onto scrap pieces of water color paper.  I colored the flowers then cut out portions of the scrap flowers to create a layers effect on the final image.  It turned out really nice, but it's hard to see in the picture.  I used the In Colors Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon and Tip Top Taupe.  For the card base I used the New In Color Watermelon Wonder.  As you might be able to to tell I did use a few other things that are not new, but I was worried about that because I knew the focus would be on the flower. Oh yeah, I did use the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and Tip Top Taupe ink to add the little splatter in the background.   Hope you like it!

New 2015-2016 Hostess Set

Isn't it beautiful!?  This is one of the new hostess sets for 2015- 2016 called "Best Thoughts". I will have to tell you as a demonstrator we have the option of purchasing the new hostess sets during the new catalog per-order, but I've never taken advantage of this because I've always thought I could earn them for free in the future. Not this time! When I saw this stamp set I knew I had to have it right away. I LOVE it!  It arrived just in time for me to make an amazing Mother's Day card to go along with the gift of red geraniums.
