Today's card features a sneak peek at a new stamp set that is in the Summer Mini catalog, which begins on May 1st. I was thinking that the STAMPIN' ADDICTS blog hop was this weekend, and I was going to feature this card. But the hop doesn't start until April 30th and I can't wait that long to show it to you!
Here's today's card:
Isn't that owl just the cutest?! All the images are from the Go, Graduate set, except for the stars. They are from Extreme Elements. I really love how this turned out. The Impressions Folder is also a sneak peek from the upcoming SUmmer Mini. It's called Square Lattice. Make sure you stop by next week Friday for the Stampin' Addicts blog hop and see all kinds of great ideas featuring new stuff from the Summer Mini Catalog.
This card combines two challenges... of course! The colors are from STACEY'S STAMPING STAGE. This is Act 26. The sketch comes from TAYLORED EXPRESSIONS blog. This is sketch 109. I altered the sketch slightly as I did not make a long card. I loved this layout so much, I used it for my swap card. I did alter the colors slightly, as I only has a scrap of Going Gray and do not plan on buying any more, since it will be retired in July.
I've chatted previously about wanting to start a stamping challenge of my own, and I am! Candace Lawlor and I have teamed up to start the Stampin' Celebration blog. It will be a weekly inspiration challenge. Our debut challenge will be on Thursday, May 6th. Just in time for Mother's Day. I haven't provided a link yet, as we are still working on a few things. But we are both VERY excited about it and hope that you will play along with us! So stay tuned!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
