Why don’t I do this more often?!! I’m talking about CASE-ing the catalog. I’ve been wanting to play around with my new stamp set, So Many Shells, so I went to page 38 in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.
Well, not a big surprise, but I can’t find my Mini Treat Bag Thinlits!! It’s here somewhere! So I made a card instead, & LOVE IT! What do you think?
I just love 2-step stampin’! And I love that new Ombre Ribbon!! Supplies listed at the bottom of this post.
For more great ideas from the catalog, head over to the SSINK PAGE!
Today we have a fun Technique Challenge for you!! Stampin’ Up! recently added Glossy Cardstock to the catalog, so we decided on a challenge that uses it. It was easy & fun & the results are so pretty!! I think you’re okay without the gloves.
Here’s what I made…another Mermaid Card!!
Isn’t it gorgeous?!! And every card is unique!
I had to fussy cut the mermaid, which wasn’t too bad. But here’s another card where I avoided the cutting!
I still really like it. What do you think? Fussy cut or no?? For my club members… let me know which one you’d like to make! We just might have to try out this technique!
That glittery star is a new accessory: 2016-2018 In Color Glitter Acrylic Shapes. There are little stars, flowers, hearts, & arrows. Really fun!
Can’t wait to see what the rest of the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Design Team has done for this challenge! CLICK HERE to check out their creations!

What kid doesn’t like ice cream? Actually, what adult doesn’t love it, too?!! At my Open House for the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog recently, I had an Ice Cream Sundae Bar. I made my own Hot Fudge for the event! Yummers!!!
