Although I haven't taken the opportunity to do a lot of talking about it, there are some great new stamp sets, Designer Series Papers and accessories in Stampin' Up!'s new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.

I'll be sharing some of the card ideas Inkertoys created for June's demonstrator business meeting's card swap.  As I've mentioned in the past, I try to get to Fresno to be with the Inkertoys demo group every month for this pep-meeting and idea sharing.  They'll tell you—I don't often get there lately, but the US mail does a great job of getting my cards there and home again.

This month several of the cards were made with PUNCHES!  What fun these new punches are!

Lace Ribbon Border Punch 122362

The vase is from the On the Grow stamp set (123075-W, 123077-C) from the 2011 Summer Mini Catalog.  Also used: the Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder (119976)  and the Big Shot Die Cut Machine (113439).

The stamp set is also carried over into the new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog (p. 66).  The Scallop Trim Border Punch (119853) was also used.
