Sunday Showcase: 6 Too Cool Card Ideas

Hi Stamping Friends!

It's time for another Sunday Showcase featuring inspiration from some of my Too Cool team members and stamping friends!  

I've highlighted the retiring items in RED. If those items are from the Spring Occasions Catalog, they're available through June 1, unless they are carrying over to the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog.  Otherwise, retiring items from the Annual Catalog are available thru June 4, while supplies last only. 

Also, be sure to look for the Spring Occasions products that we now know are confirmed to be IN the upcoming catalog. I've highlighted those products in PINK, along with some hints on other products you will be seeing soon.

Jodi - ombre petals copy     

Created by Jodi Geers at Polka Dot Stamper.  Color combo: Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White.

This card makes me so happy because it's one of my favorite color combinations—greens and teals.  Jodi used the watercolor splotches from the Happy Watercolor (wood) set, which is didn't make it into the upcoming catalog.  I love the pretty ombré effect that's so popular right now.  

Also features: Petite Petals (wood), Petite Petals Punch, Bermuda Bay 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Rhinestone Jewels

Carmen - washi burst copy      

Created by Carmen DeBruce.  Color combo: Tangerine Tango, Coastal Cabana, So Saffron, Baked Brown Sugar & Whisper White.

Carmen made a cool sunburst background using the Retro Fresh Washi Tape.  How fun!  And, it's so easy with the washi tape!  I'm so excited that the Another Thank You photopolymer set is in the new catalog.  You'll find dozens of photopolymer stamps in the new catalog! 

Also features: Retired Banner Blast (stars), retired Pinking Hearts border punch (look for a new updated hearts border in the new catalog!).

Rita - hey knot hole copy   

Created by Rita Berning.  Color combo: Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso, Strawberry Slush & Whisper White.

How clever is this quick & easy card?!  Rita cut a knot-hole in the fence…I wonder whooooo is on the other side?  I'm happy to report that the instant-classic Hardwood (wood) background stamp are in the upcoming catalog!  The Just Sayin' (wood) stamp set and Word Bubble Framelits also made the cut!  Whew! 

Peggy - flower shop bouquet copy     

Created by Peggy Tassler.  Color combo: Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Gumball Green & Whisper White.

Peggy created this beautiful bouquet from the Flower Shop (wood) set and coordinating Pansy Punch.  The flowers are accented with foliage from the Bird Builder Punch on pretty Tea Lace Doily.

Also features: Modern Mosaic Texture Impressions Folder, Express Yourself Hostess Set (wood), Bitty Banners Framelits and Rhinestone Jewels.

Angie link - pumpkin thank you copy    

Created by Angie Link.  Color combo: Coastal Cabana, Real Red, Gold & Whisper White.

This project was actually one from a recent Paper Pumpkin Kit, but Angie dressed it up with some banners!  She cut one from the gold envelope liners that came in the kit, and two more using the Fresh Prints Paper Pack.  The "thank you" from the kit is a natural wooden element that she colored with a Real Red Marker.  Nicely stepped-up!

Be sure to check out the new Pre-Paid Paper Pumpkin Subscriptions—now available!
Also features: Flower Shop (wood) and Pansy Punch.

Kathe - diana gibbs sympathy copy      

Created by Kathe Madsen, CASEd from Diana Gibbs at Stampin' With Di.  Color combo: Baked Brown Sugar & Very Vanilla.

This card is so stunning it takes my breath away!  The Gold Foil and Gold Embossing accents look so elegant along with the Baked Brown Sugar background.  Wow! (Silver Foil made it into the catalog, too!)

Also Features:  Flower Shop (wood), Pansy Punch, Petite Petals (wood), Petite Petals Punch, Wetlands (wood), Modern Mosaic Texture Impressions Folder, Baked Brown Sugar Ruffle Stretch Trim, Large Pearl Jewels, Pearl Jewels
