Favorite Stamp Set from the New SU Catalog!

Don’t you just love browsing through the new Stampin’ Up! catalog?!!  Crisp, clean pages filled with new and some old favorites!  I was able to preorder a few sets and my favorite is Colorful Seasons.  It coordinates with Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies to make some very fun images!!  Plus it comes with a die cut Adirondack chair!!

Isn’t this a fun card!  CASEd the idea from Jari Francis, who has a great blog!  Thanks Jari!

I’m liking these colors!  Lemon Lime Twist with Tempting Turquoise & Melon Mambo & Crushed Curry.

Take a look at the inside:

You probably think I’m at the beach every weekend, but the truth is, I rarely go.  I drive by one of the prettiest beaches every day (Hookipa).  But I have a string of visitors coming in the next 2 months that will force me to relax & get sandy!!  Can’t wait!

Time to check out more New Catalog Favorites from the SSINK TEAM!

Thanks for stopping by!

Lots of swirls & stripes happening in this card!  Stamp sets used were Work of Art & Swirly Bird.  Can you guess where I found the sentiment?!  You know you’ve seen it somewhere… Bear Hugs!  I just taped off the lake full of fish part.  Hint:  Remember to remove the scotch tape before stamping!  Yes, I’ve done that.
