I had a great time crafting this past August long weekend! I was up until rather late to finish up the last one on Sunday evening. I don't know how long it takes everyone else but it takes me a while sometimes. Especially if most of it is my imagination lol. I tend to get a lot of inspiration (help) from Pinterest. Everything is so Beautiful and there are awesome techniques as well! I also really like the Mojo Monday Sketches, but they are no longer doing them :( Thank goodness I printed them out over the years because I just find it to be extra help when you can't think of how you want your card to look.
Anyway... The first card I did I used the Coffee Cafe Bundle from the current Catalog. It is quickly becoming one of my new favorites. I know it's silly but my favorite part is that the little cup die cuts the little cups from the DSP, I just think that is awesome. I hope Stampin' Up! does more like that.
This is the first card I did on the weekend and I have intended to use it for my group that will start again in a couple weeks. I saw a card on Pinterest that shaded the cut and it looks awesome so I tried it on my card and love it! Surprisingly I used only the Coffee Cafe Suite with this card, usually I use a ton of other stuff as well.
Now this card was such a blast! It was the first time I used the Embossing Paste that is new in this years Annual Calalog. I can definitely see me having a ton of embossing paste!! I just used a little bit and mixed it with some Dazzling Details and stored it in an empty bad container that I have tones of.
The picture really doesn't do it any justice because you can't really see the glimmer it has but it looks so nice. If you are looking for a little something for your card... this is definite an eye catching way to do it.
This card was the second one I did like this, when I did the first one it just wasn't right.... It needed something different. I knew I wanted to make the flower Berry Burst instead of Bermuda Bay but wasn't sure of the colors to go with it. So to Pinterest I went! I searched Stampin' Up! color combinations and found some that I liked. The one I found is great because it gives you so many options and there are combos for so many colors :D
Here is the link to the one I used!
This is the first one I did and even though I really like the card... I'm not entirely pleased with the color combo I used. I really like the colors in the second card so it is my favorite of the weekend!

I hope everyone is inspired to create something wonderful and enjoys Stampin' Up! as much as I do!
