Welcome to our Hop!  You've arrived at my blog from Jo Anne Waterhouse's Blog, "Get Carded By JoAnne".  She's one talented lady and we are so blessed to have her on our team.  I'm the proud team lead of Hawaii Ink, a group filled with talented demonstrators from all over the world.  The one thing we all have in common is our LOVE of paper crafting! 

 My New Catalog Open House was last Sunday and this was one of the make & take projects my customers created.  I LOVE the new In Colors. I created this card using Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar. 
 I used the new Simply Pressed Clay and Molds to create the rose embellishment.  I easily molded about 60 of these in less than 40 minutes! I just put the clay into the mold, pressed and took them out and allowed them to dry for 24 hours.  I used some for the Open House but I have lots left and I stored them in Stampin' Up!'s new half-size wood-mount stamp cases.  You can color these clay flowers so many different way - emboss them, color them with your Aqua Painter, markers or sponge them as I did here.  I used both the Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar ink.
The designer paper is new, too, along with the stamp set and the coordinating punch.  Purchase the new Label Love stamp set and the coordinating Artisan punch together, in a bundle, and save 15%!
