This is the card I made for our monthly club challenge.  We were to use something related to time on our card.  The clock faces were stamped and attached with Crystal Effects to the Soda Pop Tops from the Spring catalog.  It is hard to see in this photo but the piece of card stock with the sentiment is embossed.
Stamps: retired Tim Holtz set, Baroque Border wheel
Paper: Basic Black, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla card stock
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Soda Pop Tops, Stripes embossing folder, 1 inch circle punch, Crystal Effects

A preview of a card we will make in stamp club this coming weekend.  We will be "doing wheelies" or exploring ways to use wheels on our projects.  The ocean on this card was made with the Oh Wave! jumbo wheel from the Spring mini catalog.  I didn't put a greeting or sentiment on it so I can decide which one to use when I send it.  There are several to choose from in this stamp set such as Get Whale Soon, Whalecome!, and Thanks a Ton. 
Stamps: Oh Wave! jumbo wheel, Oh Whale! stamp set
Paper: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Whisper White
Inks: Basic Gray, Pool Party, Calypso Coral
Accessories: Happy Whale Clearlits die, Cloudy Day embossing folder, rhinestone

Even though there is snow flying outside my window, I know Spring is not far away.  The days are getting longer and, according to the calendar, the first day of Spring is less than 3 weeks away.  Spring is symbolic of renewal and transformation and there's plenty of that going on right now at Stampin' Up!  Below are three of the new developments at SU that I want to share with you.

One is their first ever online class! Divided into six PDF documents, The Basics includes written instructions, step out photos, a few videos, and supply lists for 34 projects.  Perfect for beginners or experienced stampers, this class for $14.95 offers clever tips and techniques to get the most out of your stamping supplies (not included).  Just add item #133385 to your next workshop or online order. 

Another new offering is the new monthly kit program Paper Pumpkin.  Designed for those who may not have a collection of crafting supplies, each kit includes instructions and all the supplies needed to create a unique project.  All you need to have on hand is adhesive.  Each kit is $19.95 which includes shipping.  For more information, click here or add the Try It! kit (#132600) to your next workshop or online order. 

Finally, Stampin' Up! is excited to offer photopolymer stamps!  SU has searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to offer completely clear stamping.  When used with clear acrylic blocks, they are entirely transparent for perfect placement every time!  These are offered on a trial basis and depending on popularity, more photopolymer stamps may be released in the coming months.  So if you have been waiting for clear stamps from SU, order yours now!  Just add the Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamp Set (#132956) to your next workshop or online order. 

These are just three of the new products available to you from Stampin' Up!  From Sale-A-Bration to kits to the Best of 25 Years stamp sets, there are lots of things to get excited about!  Just ask your demonstrator.  Don't have a demonstrator?  I'd be happy to be yours!  Email me by clicking on the Email icon to the left or choose me when ordering online. 

Happy Spring (almost!) and happy stamping!
