I know it's been awhile since I have posted on a regular basis but I am hoping with school coming to a close that I will be able to do more posting and sharing with you. It's been a crazy busy year here at the Yurkanin household, a baby shower for my daughther, of course, the new baby, a son graduating high school and a son that is very active in travel soccer makes a busy, buys house. Never mind the mom that's been working almost everyday between school and workshops. With that said, I wouldn't change any of that. It's been great. I still have to finish graduation and a party but we will get it all done.
This time of year also brings along with all that some great excitement in the Stampin' Up! world. It is almost time for the new catalog to make it's debut. It's only a few short days away. This week with the Sisters in Stamping we are giving you a sneak peek into what is coming in the new catalog. Don't you love the little glimpses of what's to come? I know I do.
I used the new set called Sprinkles for Life. It is this year's Ronald McDonald House set. I love it, the top of the ice cream can be a cloud, ice cream or icing for a cupcake. How awesome is that? I love when sets are versatile and can be used for a variety of occasions.
For this card, I used several of the new in colors to make a "tie dye" type background. I had a lot of fun making it and was pleasantly surprised when my background surpassed my expectations. I know many times things I envision in my head, don't always work out on paper, but this time I was pleasantly surprised.
The best thing about this set is that the set has a coordinating punch. I know we all want punches that match the stamps so we don't have to cut anything out by hand.
Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping for more sneak peek ideas.
