Tomorrow is the debut of the Mini Catalog!!  I hope you have your Wish List ready to go.  I know I have a long one.  Also, the Online Exclusive Papers are available tomorrow.  The flyer is at the bottom of the post.  If you do not currently have a demonstrator, I would love for you to place your order with me.  There is a host code at the bottom of the post, and on the side depending on your device.  I have a rewards program also which is explained at the bottom of the post.

The card I have to share today is one that hit home with me as I made it.  It is about spending time with friends.  I know that I need to get outside my little world and do just that.  It is good for all of us!  And this stamp set is a great beginning.


Stampin' Up!, Warm Welcome, Adhesive Back Sparkle Gems, Orchid Oasis, Jackie Beers



All of these stamps are from the set Warm Welcome.  And that is an apt name for this set.  The smiling cat makes me smile every time!  This set has moved to the Online Exclusives site and is available now.  There are a variety of images to put in the doorway and great sentiments to match.

I went with a simple pairing of the friends with coffee, or tea.  Of course the cat has to be there to greet everyone!  All are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The shadow of the door on the ground was made with Light Gray Granite Stampin’ Blend.


To keep this a really simple card, I started with a base of Thick Basic White.  The layer is Orchid Oasis, as is the door.  The layers are smaller which seems to highlight the top layer more.  The Orchid Oasis is 3 5/8 X 4 7/8 and the top Basic White is 3 1/2 X 4 3/4.   There is a single Bling that does not show in the photo very well.  It is one of the Adhesive Back Sparkle Gems. I used it as the doorknob.  But since it is dark and the door is also, you have to look really close.

Thank you for stopping by today!!
