Isn't it cute? They also had a matching supply tote. But, I resisted!
After Momento Mall we sat down to swap cards and check out the new catalog. Then we browsed the display boards. Here are some of the beautiful things on display:
Then we took off and hit some craft stores. We went to 5 different stores by the time the day was over! In the afternoon we got to tour the Stampin' Up facilty. Throughout the building there were some beautiful projects on display, many of which I have seen in past publications:Sorry it's sideways! I'm too lazy to edit it right now!
Do you see the frogs in the boquet? Sooooo Cute!
It was a great day! I am inspired! I hope you feel it too!

My color combo was inspired by the new Simply Sent kit "Flower Power" which will be available in the new catalog coming out August 11th. This stamp set will be in it too. It's called "Dreams Du Jour" and I love, love, love it!
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum, Kiwi Kiss DSP: Bella Rose

My favorite stamping product lately is the Versamark pad. Sooooo awesome! I used the Versamark pad along with a background stamp to create the flowered background on the card. I love that the Versamark pad can create this "tone on tone" look. It saves me from having to have ink in every single color!
For the main image, I stamped it three times. Twice in Close to Cocoa, and once in PTI's Spring Moss. I cut out several of the Spring Moss leaves and adhered them to the image. I cut the bird out and popped him up on dimensionals.
Cardstock: Kraft, Aqua Mist, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White Paper: PTI's Everyday Blessings Ink: Close to Cocoa, Spring Moss Ribbon: PTI's Spring Moss satin ribbon Stamps: Birds Galore (Inkadinkado) and PTI's Mixed Messages
