Stampin' Up Spring Catalog: Just Thinking

Welcome to our monthly blog hop!  This month the Ladybugs are showcasing the new Spring catalog.

I just got back from Stampin' Up's Annual Leadership conference.  This year we were in Florida where we enjoyed the 80 degree weather!  I came home to a welcome note written in the snow:

One of the fun perks of Stampin' Up events are card swaps.  Below are two versions I made for a swap I signed up for.  I used the Just Thinking single stamp on page 21 of the Spring Catalog.  I also used the Print Poetry DSP stack on page 16.  This DSP stack coordinates with SU's new In Colors.  Every card was a little different because of the different patterns and colors.  You'll also notice I used the new Natural Trim Ribbon from page 20.  It is even more beautiful in person!

It turns out this was a popular stamp.  Three other stampers used it in our swap.

This card was made by Carmen McNamara from Rochester, MN.  She also used the new Striped Organdy Ribbon on page 30 and Honeycomb Embossing Folder.

 This card was made by Kay Kalthoff.  Notice the beautiful new Tea For Two DSP from page 3.

 This card was made by Sarah Groven from Pine Island, MN.  She also used the new Tea For Two DSP and Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  Look closely and you'll see the cute new Bitty Butterfly punch from page 13.
