Baja Breeze is Coming Back!

Stampin' Up announced new color families earlier this week.  Some colors will be retiring (I'll miss you Ruby Red!) but there will be additional colors that were formally retired In Colors (whoop whoop Baja Breeze!) as well as a few BRAND new colors.  Are you as excited as me???  Check out the new color families by clicking on the link to the right. 

So...down to business.  Yesterday I had the opportunity to stamp and continue to stock up on thank you cards.  This is what I came up with.

Mother's Day Cards

Whew! It's been a LONG time since I've gotten to sit down and do some stamping.  The good news is I got to finally sit down a few days ago and got a few projects completed.  Here is the first of them - a few mother's day cards.  

For the card on the left, I carefully cut along the perforations of one top note to layer onto the second.
The border on the right card was created using the scallop trim border punch along all four sides.  I haven't perfected the corners so that they are all similar.  That will just have to be a work in progress.
