Ok – This is my first post that showcases a “New Kid on the Block” from the upcoming NEW Annual Catalog that will be unveiled and ready to order from June 1st. (I know that seems like ages away but it will ZOOM by and if you have ordered from me in this past year – you will get yours as soon as I am able to order them) 😀 

Here you go…A confession from an honest stamper ~ I know that you can only image how I squealed with excitement when Stampin’ Up! gave this stamp set as an all attendee giveaway at the Richmond On Stage…but here you go…YOU NEED THIS STAMP SET! I do not care if you are not  a proud Mama to a pig like I am, you have to admit…you are smiling because they are soooooo darn tootin’ cute!

Once I saw this stamp set, I could care less about any other newbies (well…that is an exaggeration) but I am sure you could have envisioned the smile I had when I saw this in the new catalog but then the icing on the cake….to come home with one – I WAS SQUEALING WITH JOY! (you can tell that it doesn’t take much to make me happy) 🙂

 

 

 

 

This sweet card is using the Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes….please do not overlook them because they are the BEST bang for your buck and guess what  – one of my wishes are coming true…..in the NEW Catalog they will also be available in Very Vanilla….WOOT-WOOT! (another reason to SQUEAL like Daisy-Mae!)

You will see at the end of the post the colors of ink that I used but I also used the NEW In Color of Powder Pink – I used that as my base and then the highlights (blush 😀 ) are in Blushing Bride. This new pink will be a huge hit because it is so “clear and crisp”

 

 

 

 

I have another question for you…..why are so many of you afraid of water-coloring? Please be brave and leave me a comment with your “hold-backs” so I know how to help!

I think that the SINGLE reason that many of you might have is soooo simple – you do NOT have enough water on the end of the brush of the Aqua Painter….you really need to have lots of movement with the bristles of the Aqua Painter.

 

 

 

 

Now to card #2 – this is an enclosure card….a 3″ X 3″ card and again, I am squealing! I think that we forget the fact that Stampin’ Up! offers the square envelopes for this size of card and I will say…..it is fun to have a “stash” of enclosures because they DO come in handy!

Sooooooo cute…and I know you are smiling….on the inside I stamped the sentiment “Says Thanks” – so fast and sweet! I am tellin’ you….this is a FEEL GOOD Stamp Set!

 

 

 

 

 

Well…THOUGHTS???? I sent this card to Chris R. so I am excited to hear what she has to say about this stamp set. I think that Teddy would approve of a Pig in the “Robinson House” – just think…..I bet if you purchase this ~ each and every-time you use it you will think of Daisey and me  😀

I think that we all need a bit of fun and humor in our loves and this little piggy will do just that! I just could not be happier.

Many thanks for your comments and emails yesterday for the post…and I hope that you go back and see the comments I left. Remember, organizing is such a personal thing – what works for me….might not work for you and guess what – THAT IS TOTALLY OK!

Have a fabulous day….I know you will because you have seen my swine and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow  😉
