New Goodies

I’ve placed a couple of small orders from the new SU catalog and while I have more coming (hopefully) I’ve been working like crazy with what I have. I really wanted Upsy Daisy and I got it. I also love Heard from the Heart–a very versatile set that I use a lot (probably too much).

This is what I’ve been up to so far:

Eastern Blooms: Stamps: Eastern Blooms; Cardstock: Pacific Point, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White; Ink: RHR, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze; Accessories: Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder, rain dots.

Upsy Daisy Cards

 Stamps: Upsy Daisy; Cardstock: RHR, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White; Ink: RHR; Accessories: Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder, Ribbon (Non-SU)






Stamps: Upsy Daisy; Cardstock: Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, Barely Banana, Kiwi Kiss, Glossy White; Ink: Black Staz-On, RHR, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron; Accessories: Sponging 





More Cards…Xmas Trials

Not that I’m rushing for winter to be here. Normally I don’t even think about Christmas til Thanksgiving, but I had some requests for christmas cards from a co-worker and so my mind has been forced to think about the holidays early.

I saw a great, simple christmas card here. This is my version:

 Pink Noel Card: Stamps: Big on Christmas; Cardstock: Mellow Moss, Pink Pirouette, Metallic White (non-SU); Ink: Black Staz-on, Markers Pretty in Pink and Mellow Moss; Accessories: Silver Cord




 This style got me thinking of something else and since I bought these “raindrops” at ACMoore the other day, I had a lightbulb moment to make the ornament pop. 

Blue Noel Card: Stamps: Big on Christmas; Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Glossy White, Metallic White (non-SU); Ink: Black Staz-On, Tempting Turquoise Marker, Brilliant Blue Marker; Accessories: Swiss Dot Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Clear Rain Dot, Scallop Edge Punch (SU).




And finally, another version:

Noel 3D Card: This one uses Pink Pirouette and Certainly Celery DSP as the colors, with Chocolate Chip to accent. I embossed the image here, colored the letters in pink and then used stickles to make them glittery. Finally, I popped the ornament up on dimensionals and used the gold cord to “hang” it.



 On a slightly different note, this one was made using up some of my scraps, plus I’ve been wanting to try silver Embossing powder. The result:

 Stamps: Heard from the Heart, Snowflake is from “Merry” retired SU set; Ink: Versamark; Cardstock: PP, Black, White; Accessories: Silver EP, Circle punches, Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder.
