Sugar and Spice...

Hello friends! Welcome to my updated newly remodeled Stampin' Spot! I'm so happy with the design...fun, fun, fun! **Edited to add**How could I forget to tell you who did the work behind my new design!? So sorry Veronica! I LOVE Veronica's work, you can check out her blog here. She is fantastic! I totally spaced that detail...sorry!!

You'll note the fun tabs across the top of the blog, they are pretty self explanitory, but I'll just give a little ditty on each tab. I'm working on getting stuffs ready to post on my Boutique page, it will a be a place for me to sell cards, retired stamps, and such. I'll keep you posted as to when you can check that fun feature out!:) I've also added a tab for my Stampin' Up! demo. website, so you can shop for your Stampin' Up needs 24/7! I'll also be updating my site with classes and such that I'll be offering in the coming months. The last tab is my Twitter Tab! I've joined the ranks of those that tweet...I'm going to start my daily Stampin' Tweet and hope that you'll learn or rediscover with me!

My girlfriend had a baby a couple of weeks ago and I just finihsed up the card that I'll give her with a little something for the baby. I love the new Everything Nice stamp set from SU. I think the sentiments are so cute! I knew that would be my starting point for this card.

I LOVE the new scrappin' kits in the New Catalog...can you say YUM!? For my color inspiration and most of the Supplies for this card, I used the Sunny Day scrappin' kit. Scrappin' kits are such great value for the price...talk about BANG for your buck!

My card started with a Pumpkin Pie card base. The stripe dsp is one of the 4 yummy flavors of dsp you get in the Sunny Day kit. I used my scallop edge punch and Pink Passion cardstock for a little scalloped border for the bottom of the card. I stamped my sentiment in Pink Passion ink and then stamped it on one of the self-adhesive die cut frames from the scrappin' kit, the pumpkin pie scalloped frame. After stamping in the frame, I layered it on some Pink Passion cardstock.

I used some striped Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon for my ribbon detail. A strip of Ultra Clear sticky strip held the ribbon just perfect! I mounted my sentiment layer with dimensionals and then it was on to my accent.

My flowers are from Prima--and I'm so happy to have used some of my large supply of flowers!! The Pumpkin Pie button/brad is from Stampin' Up. I used some sticky strip to attach my flower to my card...perfect fit!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate your visits! Have a great one!!

Jeni,
I love your new look. What I think is so cute is the way the spot appears to bounce to it's destination. Too Cute! I'd like to ask - Is it hard to set up your own blog? I've been thinking about it for awhile. I have my SU! DBWS and update it regularly but think perhaps a blog would be a nice addition. I'd love to hear from you and perhaps you could take a look at my DBWS one day and give me some feedback. I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks for all the fabulous cards you share with us your blogging friends.
Barb
