Happy Wednesday! We are just 6 DAYS away from the release of the Close to my Heart Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book & Catalog!! WOO HOO You are going to LOVE ALL the new Paper Packets, Stamp Sets, Embellies and other AWESOME products that are featured in this new book!! Make sure to check out the new Idea Book & Catalog my website www.lovinscrappin.ctmh.com on August 1st. Prepared to be BLOWN away!!
That brings me to my post....which is a sneak peak at a SUPER CUTE NEW stamp set called "Pun Fun". I wanted to show it early for 2 reasons.....#1 the paper pack Cruisin' that I used on this card will be RETIRING on July 31st! SO if you like it...you need to order it BEFORE IT RETIRES! #2 well, it is a SNEAK PEAK! LOL
This was my swap card for the monthly Unit Swap that I participate in. It is a VERY simple card, yet pretty sweet! That turtle is just to DIE FOR! LOL To create the turtle...I stamped him 1st in Black ink on the White Daisy CS. I then stamped him 2 times on Juniper CS, cut one for his body and the 2nd for the "spots" on his back. I stamped him once again on the argyle patterned paper for his shell. It is hard to tell from the photo, but I pop dotted him for dimension.
I am SO looking forward to playing a bit more with this set!! Stay tuned for more.....
Thanks SO much for stopping by today!!
Hope this has inspired you to get out some of your lined stamp sets and do a little bit of layering and paper piecing. It sure makes a HUGE difference in the way the image starts out!
Happy Scrapping and Stamping!!

Pun Fun with Cruisin'
Life has a way of throwing us curveballs when we least expect it. What we do and how we react to those curveballs, is up to us. Who would have thought that at the age of 45 I would be starting my life over, reinventing myself and finally figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Well, ALMOST! lol I want to play with ink, paper and ribbon and share Stampin' Up's wonderful products and opportunities with you!! I am THRILLED to be part of this company and am looking forward to seeing where the wind takes me. Happy Stamping!!
