Here is a continuation of cards from the Orlando Show. I stamped this one with the Glue Pad and sprinkled the Sparkletts Blue Ice glitter on the Ice Blue Pearlescent paper.
This card was on the blue cardstock and using the 1 inch hole punch I punched little "windows" for the puppies to look out of. I used the Versa Fine Vintage Sepia for the puppies, colored them in and then put 3D Lacquer sprinkled with the Fun Fluff for the fluffy texture.

Here are more cards and projects to tickle your creative bone. This first one is a bag I made using the Paige paisley decorated paper. I used the circle stamps and Marvy punch for decoration.This card was stamped in the Versa Fine Vintage Sepia with the Filigree stamp. I used the 3d Lacquer with the new Sparkletts Bronze glitter for a dimensional sparkle. I used the matching Bronze Pearlescent paper with the punch to "outline" the circle word punch. The top border was using the Brilliance Jade pad. The Aquamarine paper gave a nice contrast to the brown, it matches the Jade pad perfectly.

This is a continuation of the stamping fun I had in Orlando. We met a lady that brought a magazine that is available in the UK. They did a full feature on our Mimi stamps. It was amazing.
It was in the January 2009 issue and the article was called Mimi's Magical Christmas.
This card was using the new Filigree stamps. I stamped the Brilliance Platinum pad on the Vellum paper on the Vellum paper. Though you can't see it, I stamped the filigree stamp in Versa Magic Aloe Vera on the white card base. I used the Pearlescent paper for the punch scallop "outline" and stamped the circle birthday and double circle stamp in the same Aloe Vera. I finished the card with the sheer ribbon. A very soft and elegant look.
I did another version of this card before. I used the Brilliance Platinum on Vellum paper for the subtle look. I lined the vellum with the black cardstock for contrast. Very eye catching and dramatic.

We just returned from Orlando, FL. Weather was pleasant along with the pleasant folks. I did lots of stamping and brought back pictures for you.
We premiered our gift bag and box template and will have them available on the website. They are packaged in a ten pack. We will have colors available online only for now. At the show we have white available for easy decorating.
I enjoyed using the new word and circle stamps to create a fun embellishment. They give a finished look. Marvy punch has a little "window" that allows you to center your stamping and then punch out.

Here is Day 5 of Card Week. Lots of cards and lots of ideas.
This card was stamped on the Bronze pearlescent card. It's similar to one I posted on a previous day this week. Just a variation of the same theme. Great if you are making a card gift set for someone. Here is the Easter chicks in a different format.

Here is Day 4 of card week. This following card was stamped in the Brilliance Platinum on the White Vellum Paper. I used the 3D Lacquer and added the Silver iridescent glitter. A great card for all occasions, even for men.
This new vine and tree stamp is great for all seasons. Just change the dots using the 3D Lacquer to make it fit all the seasons. I used brown and red as the main colors in this card. I used the new red glitter and the gold glitter.

This is Day 3 of week of cards. I got to use the funny monkeys on a pop up card. The new saying that goes with it is "Hang in There". A sweet encouraging note.
Cute new chick with heart balloon. Can be used for Valentines or birthday.
Love the filigree stamps. I used the Ice Blue pearlescent paper and stamped it in the Chocolate Brown Brilliance pad. I stamped the brown cardstock with Versafine Vintage Sepia for the brown borders. The circle stamps are so versatile for cards and projects.

Here's day 2 in my week of cards. I had so many to post that I thought I would give you a slow stream of them this whole week.
This is a tent card using the Easter chicks. Folds flat for mailing. The fresh colors go great with this season. I used the Versacolor Lime and Versafine satin red with the new dot stamp.
This is the cover of the pop-up card.
