It's my most favorite time of the year, because it is time to earn FREE Stampin' Up! products!! And what a fabulous assortment of products they are offereing this year. Everything from stamp sets, to buttons and ribbons, to digital downloads. I love everything in this catalog, but the one item I wanted first was a stamp set called Bliss. It has a beautiful swirl image that I just love. Here's what I've done with it:

I'm really lovin' doing the vintage style cards. They take a lot more effort for me. I'm more of a clean and cutesy girl. I love all the textures and layers and distressing of the vintage style. This was the first time I used the Smooch Spray. I may have gone a little overboard. I usually take the piece of cardstock I want to spray outside. I first spritz the spray and then wave my piece of cardstock through the mist. This way I avoid globs. But it was quite late last night when I was making this card, so it was kind of dark and I couldn't quite see if I had gotten enough on it, so I sprayed it again. Yep. A little over zealous.
