Whew… what a day. Busy, busy, busy, but it is now just before 9 p.m. and I’m in my PJs and just about ready to fall into bed and call it a night… BUT I have one thing left to tend to 🙂

So I apologize for taking ALL day to get back here, but without further ado here is project #3 in the series of sneak peeks for the new Summer Mini Catalog:

This card actually features a bunch of new stuff including two new core colors from the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog. I talked a bit about the Color Renovation coming with the next big catalog here. Check it out.
In the meantime, lets talk about the card! One of my new favorite products in the Summer Mini is the Smooch Spritz! It comes in four colors and I used the Vanilla shimmer on the Early Espresso (new) card base and on the layered flowers (an XL Bigz die for the Big Shot machine – from the current main catalog). I also used the Gold Glow Smooch Spritz on the new Presto Patterns Designer Series paper (another one of my FAVORITES!). The paper is actually entirely white and I used the dusty durango ink to color the cardstock (with a sponge) and that reveals the pattern on the cardstock. Cool, huh?
The Smooch Spritz also comes in two other colors – Silver Foil and Log Cabin (brown). Let me just tell you these are VERY addictive! I was only planning on adding it to the new Presto Patterns background paper, but after it looked so cool I added it to my flowers and my card base. Love it!
Also new is the tiny vintage tag attached to the knot. These super cute mini vintage tags come with 12 in each package for just $4.95. I think they provide a great bang for your buck and I love how they look with the Smooch Spritz.
Lastly, there is a tiny sneak peek of another new stamp set from the Summer Mini. It’s called Elements of Style and I love it! I actually got this one for free when I attended Leadership back in January. This is a great vintage style set that has a lot of versatility. On this card I just used a swirl element from the set. I’ll show you more of this set later this week so be sure to stay tuned!
Oh and by the way there is a second new color from the Color Renovation featured on this card, too. It is the sunny yellow, which is called Daffodil Delight. I think this color will work great with a variety of color combinations. It’s a bright, cheery color, but not quite as intense as the current Yo-Yo yellow.
Well, I think I must call it a night as I’m not even sure if this post made sense because I’m so tired!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and please feel free to leave me comments on what you like (or don’t like). I love, love, love hearing feedback from you!
Have a great night and be sure to come back tomorrow for more more new goodies!
