New Catty Sneak Peek - 2 Cards

So, I received my goodie package from Mr. Brown a few days ago (UPS man), and he came bearing new catalogue products.

There was a new stamp set, 2 new hostess sets, a new Designer Paper pack, a new scallop punch, new buttons, and all the new In Colors for the next year. It is heaven in my craft room. I made a couple of projects with the new stuff.

The first one is a pocket card. VERY easy to do. You just need some Sticky Strip (or Scor Tape), and a scoring blade (or a Scor-Pal or a bone folder with a ruler).

I took my regular standard piece of cardstock for the base (11" x 4 1/2") and scored in the middle (5 1/2"), and then scored close to one of the ends (about 1 1/2"). Fold the card in half, and then fold the end strip out. You will put tape on the inside of the card, only along both sides, from top to bottom. Also, you will adhere that front strip down after you have decorated it.

You can decorate that however you'd like. I added some of the NEW Bella Rose Designer Paper to the outside, as well as some white ribbon. I stamped the flower from Fresh Cuts, once in Ridinghood Red, and once in Pink Pirouette, and cut them both out. I layered those on top of eachother. The brad in the centre is a silver brad. I covered it with a mini glue dot, and then smooshed that into some green Cosmo Glitter. That picked up the Kiwi Kiss colour quite well.
I also used the new Scallop Edge Punch to scallop 2 edges on the card. It is SOOOO easy to use. Finally!

For the inside card, I used some of the Designer paper with the Kiwi Kiss colour, and stamped it with some images from Fresh Cuts.

For the second card, I got my idea from Cambria's blog. She showcased this new Hostess set quite nicely, as well as the new In Colors. So, I CASE'd it!

Here is the link to the original:

I did a simplified version of it, because I don't do all the sewing, but the idea is the same. Cambria is the queen!

The Tangerine Tango colour is my new favourite!!! It used to be Groovy Guava, but it's time to say goodbye to that one.
