All is can say is 'WOW!' I got my complimentary copy of the new catalog yesterday!! It is beautiful and so nicely laid out! SU really outdid themselves this year and I'm excited to get you your new ones asap!!!! My boxes are on their way just not sure when as we can't track them! Arhhhh.
Here's a card sample I made one of the first nights I had rec'd my new preview stamp sets. I was saving it to demo at my team meeting on July 7th but then the retired accessory list came out so there went my plans of using the copper embossing powder and the wide organdy ribbon!
The technique I used was called Faux Metal and this is what I did:
Supplies to do Faux Metal:
Embossing Powder of your choice
Solid image stamp set
Piece of cardstock
On piece of paper bigger than the image I covered area with versamark then poured Copper EP and heated till just changed, then patted my versamark pad over that again (won't stick to EP if that's what you're wondering), repeated the first step total of 4 times. By the end I had quite a thick 'puddle' of copper EP. Once you heat set that last time as soon as the powder melts take your stamp and quickly place in 'the puddle'. Hold it down for 10 seconds or so and then remove. Voila! For my sample I cut around the Baroque Motif's flower and then used my 1/4 inch circle punch to punch circles around to make the medallion.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask away.
Today is our youngest daughter's birthday party with her friends. Tomorrow is her actual birthday where she's turning '4!'!!!!! I can't believe how quickly the time flies!
Its also the last day of school today so our older 2 girls are sooo excited.
I hope you all have a wonderful day,

Here's a few of the pic's I took yesterday. In the middle of the photo under the bridge there are usually campsites there and a picnic area. You can see the row of tree's that usually goes along the river bank. Pretty amazing to see! (if you click on the photo you can get a much better view)
Well here's another quick card I made the other night when I was playing with my new goodies!
The white c/s is on dimensionals to give the raised look. I LOVE this tin set and so glad I have it!
I'll upload some pic's I took after school yesterday of the swollen river near where I live. (well 15min away). Thankfully it looks like for the time being we've avoided a big flood as the weather cooperated but the news says there's still like 80% of the snow that has to come down from the mountains so June will be touch and go until that snow gets down.....all depends on the weather!
Have a great day,

While blog surfing I came accross this great idea to store punches! sararedman bought some cheap curtain rods, spraypainted them black and attached them to her wall!!!! I love this idea and i'm inspired to run to Walmart to buy some! What do you think?
I love storage ideas as I'm constantly trying to improve my stamp room and make it more organized!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend! We bought some blueberry bushes at the local Flea Market today so will have to get those planted soon....(ran out of time today)
