blog102bic23piece.jpgYay!! Yesterday I got to play with my new Stampin’ Up! toys. What fun I had. *big grin*  I was able to make three cards all of which are SUO (Stampin’ Up! Only).

The first card was made for  Beate’s Inspiration Challenge #23.  This room was the inspiration piece.  And here is the card that I made for it.


I used two of my new stamp sets, “Nature Silhouettes” and “On Your Birthday”.  I also used some of SU!’s new Designer Series Paper “Manchester”.

Now I couldn’t wait to use my new “Alpine” Ribbon Originals.  Oh don’t you just love this chocolate chip felt ribbon complete with stitching.

I combined it with the new 1″ wide chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon.  Two more new sets, “A Flower for All Seasons” and the beautiful Merry Christmas sentiment from “A Cardinal Christmas” were used.  “Holiday Treasures” is some of the most beautiful designer paper… EVER!!  Yup I used some of that, too.

The third card today uses the new set “Starring You”.


This card is made with the new In Color “Baja Breeze”.  Wow I love this color!  The designer paper is the new “Patterns”.  The new 1-3/4″ circle punch was used for the black circle behind the main image/sentiment.  The stars were stamped with SU!’s “Classic Backgrounds”.  Although this is not a new set, it was the first time I have used it.  To make the little star embellishment I stamped a single star on some whisper white card stock.  Then I took the small star punch, centered the stamped star and punched it out.

Oh yay!  It was a fun day!!  Hope you get some stamping time in, too!!
