Hi stampers! I think a pattern is emerging....that I really like Betsy's blossoms....one of the new sneak peek sets, ha! I just love the solid and bold images of this set and I can't stop using it! I'm going to have to stop tomorrow though, I have GOT to work on my AA contest entries!!! I wish we could use the sneak peek items and new in colors but alas I can't. Oh well...I have plenty of fabulous other stuff I suppose:-)
The card I have today is based of a Sweet Sunday sketch from a few weeks ago that I never got to play around with.
Stamps: Betsy's blossoms, loving thoughts
Paper: Whisper white, pool party, in colors 2011-2013 DSP stack
Ink: Pool party, summer starfruit, raspberry ripple
Accessories: Oval accents clear die, bitty banners and apothecary accents framelits, gumball green satin stitched ribbon, large pearls, dazzling details
I really wanted to use my new sneak peek die on this card! See the fun shape? It's called the oval accents bigz clear die and it's wicked cool! In face, I used THREE new dies here! I used both of the new framelits and the big die! The clear die is pretty big! This card is 5x5 square if that gives you some reference and I cut about 1/4 of it off. It was actually backordered for one day, haha! I'm guessing either it didn't come in on time or it just didn't make it to the pick line on time. So, it gave me something to look forward to the day after my order! I love that SU ships out backorders in the same manner that you got the rest of your shipment! My lonely die went next day air!!!!
The new in colors are so bold and go so well with our other colors. I paired them here with pool party and it was perfection!!!! That gumball green ribbon is pretty fun too! And it's hard to see but I dotted the birds wings with dazzling details!
Off to work on my AA entries....wish me luck!!! And I get to see the catalog tonight I hope too...well tomorrow if they post it at midnight....and I can either stay up or GET up at 1 am my time;-) Wish me luck on that too, lol!
