Oh boy! You’re going to have back to back IHP excitement. First, today is our monthly DT Challenge and tomorrow we begin sneak peeking the latest Petal Press set from Tracy Schultz called Summer Garden. The Petal Press is BACK (after a brief hiatus) and this new set is the perfect summer set! It is sweet and elegant and even coordinates with some elements from Happy Harvest! So , if you’ve got that one then you’re definitely going to want this one! Best of all (for me), all the flowers are allergy free!
AND...in case you haven't seen the new SCS Dirty Dozen gallery...BOTH of the new additions are IHP girls! I am SO excited and SO proud to extend congratulations to Cathleen and Tiff!
With the new release we are also welcoming some new DT faces. They will all have sneak peek samples tomorrow and there will be blog candy up for grabs so be sure to stop by and comment on all of their blogs for your multiple chances to win both tomorrow and on release day, June 23.
Please join me in welcoming (or welcoming back) the team and I hope you stop by tomorrow to see their amazing creations! (Note: Tracy will have projects posted all week long leading up to the release.)Amy

And now…onto today’s Getting “Krafty” DT Challenge! The challenge was to create a project using some of the awesome kraft papers/supplies available, like the Jillibean Soup printed kraft papers or the new Basic Grey Basics Kraft (or Manila) pads – just to name a few! Here is my card:
I used some Jillibean Soup White Macaroni paper and, in honor of Tracy’s new release tomorrow, I broke out one of her old sets, Sleigh Ride (on sale now because it is Christmas set!), and made my very first Christmas card of the year! Woo-hoo! I’m ahead of the game! I stamped it in Memento Black on Copic Heavyweight cardstock, colored it with Copics, cut it out with my Circle Nesties and then went over the sleigh with Crackle Accents and added some Rock Candy and Pine Stickles to the filler. I stamped the greeting in Palette Noir and then went over it with Palette L’Amour Red for a little shadow effect to make it stand out more against the background. I used the Jumbo Scalloped Petite Borderabilities to create my top piece and added some Sparkle Gems. I finished it off with a luscious red silk bow.
Be sure to visit the rest of the Core DT to see their projects. And, if you’d like to play along, please tag your project ihp0610 in your SCS or PCP galleries so we can find it! Be sure to leave a comment with your blog link if you play along too!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to see you tomorrow for the sneak peek!
