Inspiration Sunday (and a Sneak Peek!)

Time for another spot of inspiration, and this time I got my idea from food.  My Stampin' Up! colleague, Bonnie, showed me a magazine spread of a cake, and I had to snap a photo to use it for a card idea.  And today is the day...take a look:

Doesn't that look yummy?  Pink Lemonade cake?

Well, how about a sneak peek of an upcoming stamp set with some "lemonade cake"?

I have totally flipped over Hand Delivered, a Host set from the new Stampin' Up! catalog, coming June 1st.  It's an adorable set of 'skirts and legs' that have different 'tops'--here is the sign (complete with hands holding it); it has different sentiments that you can use on the sign.  There is also balloons, a wedding cake and a stack of books/presents.  So perfect for so many occasions!

And paired with the fabulous colors from the lemonade cake, this is one sweet card!

First, the stamp--I stamped the skirt/legs, and then used another stamp for the patterns in the skirt.  CUTE!  Then I stamped the sign/hands, and added the flowers and sentiment.  Everything is colored with Stampin' Blends (making a comeback in June, with LOTS of new colors - YIPPEE!).  Check out those wonderful Lovely Lipstick shoes!

For my background I used (from the left) Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, *new* Mango Melody, and Daffodil Delight.  If you've been watching the Stampin' Up! news about the new color  revamp, you know that we are changing colors/families, and Flirty Flamingo (a current In Color that is due to retire) is staying, joining the Brights collection.  Mango Melody is a brand new color - a gorgeous bright yellow-y orange, lighter and brighter than Pumpkin Pie (which is moving to the Regals family), and a great match with Daffodil Delight.

And check out that flirty ribbon--this Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon is so fun!    Light-weight tulle with felt-like polka dots all over it; it comes in Whisper White and Very Vanilla.

I framed my white focal panel with a combination of Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo:

Isn't this just the cutest?

New catalogs will be available in May; customers who have placed orders with me will receive one for FREE.  Don't have a demonstrator?  Want a catalog?  Please contact me and one will be on its way!

I hope you like my rendition of "lemonade cake" with Hand Delivered; I can't wait to "hand deliver" your new catalog so you can see the wonderful new items coming soon!
