In LOVE with In Colors!

Hi all!  While many Stampin'Up! demonstrators are at convention right now, I sat out this year out to spend time with Denver.  I am happy to say that I'm managing to get a wee bit of a stamping fix by playing with my new catalog goodies in between my little baby's nap time!  It's definitely a juggle, as I'm learning.  I have newfound amazement and respect for all the new moms that could still find time to craft and tend to baby {and other kids, in some cases!}.  Needless to say, I had LOTS of fun crafting with the new Houndstooth and Stripes Embossing folders as well as the brand new Petite Pockets Bigz XL die.  The cute little envelopes were SOO fun to make.  Oh - and I can't forget the stamp sets - I played with Button Buddies and Happiest Birthday Wishes {hostess set}
Button Buddies Clear Mount Stamp Set, $21.95:

 Happiest Birthday Wishes Clear Mount Hostess Stamp Set, $15.00 with Hostess Dollars:

It feels good to be stamping!  Here are more pictures for you.
I love the coordinating ruffled ribbon and ink colors!  These look great in monotone colors, or you could definitely have fun mixing and matching.  The flower from the Button Buddies set punches out perfectly with the scallop circle punch - isn't that cool?  How do you like the textures?  I did the Houndstooth on the envelope flap, and the Stripes just on the back bottom panel.  I kept the front side smooth.

And of course, I had to make a little card tag insert for the inside of the envelope.  Those little circle reinforecments are part of the die cut!  Aren't these fun little envelope ensembles?  These would be great little thank you note cards, too, or any sort of gift note cards {baby, wedding, teachers, hostesses, new neighbors...possibilities are endless!}

Hope you got some good ideas!   If you like what you see and want to order some of these goodies, you can always shop 24/7 at my Online Store.  Thanks for popping by today.  Have a good one :)

Hi Rose, I just wanted to say that these are absolutely GORGEOUS!
I love the envelopes and the way you've done the gift card inside. They are really sweet. We don't have any of that in Australia yet, but fingers crossed for our next catty. Love what you've done with all your goodies.
