Today, I'm writing from the store. Kathy & Doreen are putting out new papers from Imaginisce. Imaginisce continues to create wonderful patterns in 2 sided 12 x 12 papers. The papers are wonderful for scrapbook pages as well as cardmaking. "All Kinds of Happy" is a new line of birthday themed papers. "Baby Powder" papers cater to babies, of course, with papers for baby boy or girl. Each line has brads, rub-ons, stickers, flowers and clear stamps to coordinate with them. You can see all the papers at Imaginisce .
If you've been searching all over for the CuttleBug embossing folders, stop at the store. There are numerous designs in stock now. A few new ones are: Birds & Swirls, Swiss Dots, Number Collage, & Diamonds in the Rough. Many of the favorites are back in stock, too: Distressed Stripes, D'vine Swirl & Stylized Flowers. These embossing folders are so easy to use with the Cuttle Bug. The impressions are great to add to card backgrounds, mats & a bit of embellishment. In my last post, the card with the bird & branch uses the "Dotted Swiss" & "D'vine Swirl".
We have new papers by Reminisce, too. Water fun is the theme. Most of the papers are pearlescent & feature bright summery colors. There are matching rub-ons & stickers, too. There's lots of fun stuff to add to your scrapbook pages. Be sure to stop in soon.

I have a couple more sample cards from the store to show you. Doreen created this cute bird card using 2 different Cuttle Bug embossing plates. The texture adds a lot to the card.
The second photo shows 2 cards made with Penny Black stamps. The "happy birthday" was colored with glaze pens. The shine compliments the shine in the background paper. The "birthday girl" card was made by Sally. The Penny Black "girls" are all so cute!
Enjoy the weekend!

Did you celebrate National Scrapbooking day on Saturday? It was a great day to get over to Fond Memories & do the Make & Takes.
I found a little time to stamp this afternoon. Here's a Mother's Day card using two of the new clear stamp sets from Paper Inspirations.
I used Spellbinders Nestabilities oval dies to cut the chipboard & mat for "Mom". The chipboard is painted with Tattered Rose Distress Crackle paint. I used the Espresso Paint Dabber to apply paint to the "Mom"stamp from the Mother Collage set. The paint is more opaque than any ink would be especially over the Distress paint.(Tip: Clean the stamp immediately so the paint doesn't dry on it.) The scalloped mat is cut out of copper moire paper & embossed. The lace pattern across the light pink card is stamped with one of the lace designs from Ornamental Borders 2 by Paper Inspirations. I stamped it with Distress Antique Linen ink & embossed it with clear. Then I applied some color to the center of the lace using Cut N Dry Foam to pick up ink from a Distress Tattered Rose pad. I tied sheer copper ribbon around the card & fastened the "Mom" oval with foam tape. Celebrate Mom next Sunday!
