Sneak Peeks - Two simple cards for you!!

(Supplies: Card Base - Unknown, Stampin Up: PP - Sweet Pea DSP Stack, CS - So Saffron, Confetti White, Ink - Old Olive, Taken with Teal, Button - Kiwi Kiss Cordoroy Button, Ribbon - Old Olive 1/4" grosgrain, Punch - Scallop Trim Border, Stamp Sets - Vintage Vogue, Tiny Tags)

This card was made using the new Occasions Mini set "Vintage Vogue" (vine and flower) and the Tiny Tags set (4 you). Both these sets I purchased during the demonstrator preorder and are both the new Clear Mount style. I am very happy to tell you that the images from these new style of stamps are just as clear and crisp as the wood mount sets - because they are still rubber stamps and the same rubber as the wood mount!!

(Supplies: Card base -unknown, Stampin' Up: CS - So Saffron, Confetti White, PP - Sweet Pea DSP Stack,Ink - Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Stamp Set - Well-Scripted, Punch - XL Two-Step Bird, Scallop Trim Border, Brad - Filagree Flower)

This card I used two of the new punches - XL Two Step Bird and the Scallop Trim Border which will be available FREE in the Saleabration promotion January 5th! The stamp set was again the new Clear Mount style from the Occasions Mini called "Well-Scripted". A very pretty set. There is another similar style set available in the Saleabration promotion that I am really hoping.

Dormant List - Retiring Sets

I know I've been away for a long time and I do apologize. I needed to think out how to deal with the new Stampin' Up agreement and posting my projects. I feel okay about how to do that now and likely have enough projects/cards/scrapbook pages to show you for weeks. I've been busy and doing lots of stuff (mainly cards and am having serious scrapbooking withdrawal) and have four card groups of stuff to show you too!!

For now, here is the list of the Dormant Sets that are retiring as of January 4th. I will update with links slowly over today but wanted to get this up. Today is the last "suggested" day to order to guarantee shipping in time for Christmas so hop to it if you need to order for a present :)
