I just got a bunch of new goodies from Stampin' Up! They currently have their Occasions catalog out along with their Sale-A-Bration promotion, which means lots of fun new stuff and some great deals! As soon as I opened up my box, I was inspired to make some new cards, so here's one that I made last week...
The Snuggles and Smooches stamp was a last minute pick for me. I don't think it showed up in any catalogs, so I don't know that it was well advertised. I saw it, sort of by accident and threw it in my cart at the last second. I'm so glad I did because I sort of love it! As soon as I saw the stamp set, I grabbed my Gold ink and started stamping! Aren't those swirls just beautiful? I used a left over strip of Gold Soiree DSP and feathers from the card I made for our Double Dare Challenge. Apparently my desk needs to be cleaned up because I have lots of random left overs scattered on it! Then I die cut the sentiment from the new Hello You thinlits. It's impossible to tell, but I used the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP, which is fabulously fun and layered it onto some foam for a little dimension. Of course I had to tuck in a little doily for an extra feminine touch. Love it!
