Welcome to another fun blog hop with my stampin’ friends from all around.

I am always so inspired by all the great projects and love being in such creative company.

This week I have been playing with some NEW products that will be available for customers on Nov. 1st, so just a couple of days now.

And yes, I am very THANKFUL that I am a Stampin’ Up! demo and I get to play with the cool new products, first.  See what I did there with that thankful theme?  lol

Whole Lot Of Lovely Designer Series Paper 144110
Price: $11.00

So this week I have also been thankful for the big Buy 3 Get One Free Sale on Selected Designer Series Papers from Stampin’ Up!  It is so easy to look like a fabulous artist, just match your cardstock colors to the wonderful DSP and your color decision is made for you!

I am also using the brand NEW Stampin’ Blends alcohol Markers, available Nov 1st for customers and these are a MUST.  I don’t even like coloring stuff that much.  I usually leave streaks because I am impatient and don’t do it correctly.

Not with the new Blends!  Wow, they go on smoothly!  Even for me.  😉

So here is my first card.   LOVE these colors and how they POP off the page with the black accent along with the pastels.

The ribbon is the Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  That color is not ‘officially’ in the colors listed in the DSP.  But I love this ribbon so much for it’s floppiness, I had to add it.  I think it looks good with this gorgeous paper.

The stamps in the limited edition set (that will be available on Nov 1st with the Blends) is the Color Me Happy set.  Perfect for coloring, which is obviously the plan.

Topped this off with some fun new black rhinestones.

What a quick and easy card!  Wow, and the bold colors in the paper really make it striking layered on the Basic Black card base.

Now for Card #2.

This is the flip side of one sheet of DSP.  Such totally different looks!

By now, I was getting into the coloring and shading on the little birds.

Went wild and added some of the light Crumb Cake Marker in there.  Yep, I am a wild woman.

So get excited about these new goodies coming in just a couple of days!  Yay!

I am still playing, check back later for cards using the other stamps in this set.

And if you like my new blog watermark, an Engraved ‘D’ Block in the pictures above, check out all the fun Stampin’ Up! stuff I am engraving on this page.  Or you can click on the ‘Custom and Engraved Tools’ in the top menu.

Great for your pictures, great for using in classes, FANTASTIC team and customer gifts for the holidays of new club startups.

Enjoy the rest of the hop and see what others around the world are thankful for today.
