I’m having so much fun playing with these new colors this week. Do you have a favorite yet? It’s so hard to choose!

Anyway, on to today’s card. I pulled out “Fred.” Fred is the octopus in my Sea of Textures stamp set. I really wasn’t sold on the stamp set because of this little octopus … he was a little too “real life” for me. But he has quickly been growing on me so of course I named him! Now I can’t imagine my life without “Fred”… (ha!). 

I love the two sentiments in this set, too. The “thanks for reaching out” is perfect and I love “Have a wonderful adventure” — it could be used for so many things.
Here is the card for today. I’m using Poppy Parade and Balmy Blue as my highlighted new colors and of course I threw in a little Crumb Cake, too.

I love the dies that coordinate with this set. They are called Under the Sea and they have so many amazing elements like sand dollars, netting and little “cut out” fishies, which I use on this card. You can see that in better detail in the video below.
Here’s today’s video as well… where I show you how I put this card together…
If you’re finding fun toys you *need* to have, don’t forget to use this month’s host code U7NB3XGU at www.jenpitta.stampinup.net before checkout, and I’ll include a free sheet of bling in your thank you note! Don’t use the code, though, if your order is over $150 as then you’ll qualify for your own rewards (and I’ll still send you your free embellishment!)
I’ll be back tomorrow with a new project to share with you… but don’t forget about my New Color Club starting on July 1st. You’ll be able to get all 16 new colors (ink pads, refills and markers), two a month for 8 months. It’s a great way to get the whole collection without breaking the bank. As a perk, you’ll also get the following:
– $25 product bonus in your hostess month (host a private class or online party in your month to earn extra rewards)
– free surprise goodies in your kit each month
– free Stampin’ Blends alcohol marker combo in the color of your choice at the completion of club (there are even some brand new colors available!)
– **Join during New Color Week** and get this color sampler for free in your first kit:
I’m so excited about this new club — it’s a first for me and I can’t wait to spoil my inaugural members of club! We’ll even have a secret Facebook group to share ideas, projects and probably some giveaways, too (wink, wink)! Email me today if you want to join at jen pitta (at) comcast (dot) net.
Okay that’s all for today — “see” you right back here tomorrow!
