Freakin' New Catalog Goodness!!

Oooooo!! What could be MORE FUN than getting inspiration from the Control Freaks as they play with NEW GOODNESS from the NEW CATALOG???? Not a whole heck-of-a-lot!!! This month we are all making creations from things we have ALREADY "acquired" from the new Stampin' Up Catalog!! Did ya SEE what the Creative Connie Babbert shared??? She is ALWAYS amazing!!

I saw a card similar to this one at a recent "downline" meeting I went to at Pam Morgan's ... couldn't tell ya WHO made it ... but I DO know that I KNEW that I HAD to do something similar!! I seem to be having a "thing" lately with tone-on-tone, monochromatic creations ... and I LOVELOVELOVE that I was able to use the new Blendabilities markers to make this card for a wedding gift that needed a card for a wedding reception I am heading off to ...

Oooooh...such pretty colors! And I am loving the tone on tone. Such a pretty technique using the Blendabilities with the same color as the background. You always have such unique special touches to your projects!

I am inspired by so many of your cards, Wendy!! I instantly thought the second one would be perfect for some of the ladies at a local assisted living center we visit--something a little extra-pretty :). But looking at it more, I think I'll make extras to have on hand :). Thanks, Wendy!
