Here's post two, as promised. Short and sweet. I tried three of my new SU! sets last night: Crazy for Cupcakes, Four Square and Pocket Silhouettes. Here are the cards:
The cupcake card showcases several of SU!'s amazing new products: Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red In Colors, the WIDE (1"!!!!) Pink Pirouette ribbon, the Filigree brad, and the scalloped edge punch. I used ink from the lids of the ink pads to color in the cupcakes, then added dazzling diamonds glitter to the frosting! Yummy!
This second card is just about the easiest card I've ever made. I got this set specifically because I thought it would make great cards for MEN! I rarely make masculine cards, but paired with this Prestwick Designer paper, also new this year, this card came together in about one minute! Including the eyelet, because the cropodile sets eyelets so quickly!
The last card uses two more of the in colors: Baja Breeze and Pacific Point, both gorgeous in person! I used Pocket Silhouettes, which will be in a VERY close second to the cupcake set as my favorite new set. It is so soft and sweet, this set. I wish I could take credit for this cool card layout, but I saw it on Tuesday on a very talented gal's blog. Laura, one of Unity's cool Design Team members, did this to a couple of cards. I just sliced about an inch off of the top and side of the front of the card, then covered the inside with a piece of Urban Garden Designer Paper, which is to DIE for!!
That's all for today! Thanks for the prayers for my aunt. I got a phone call from Mom saying she made it through surgery okay, and is settling in to her room. I can't believe they send someone home from the hospital the DAY AFTER major surgery. If you are so inclined, please continue praying for her speedy recovery and her emotional health! I LOVE you Auntie, and so does Isaac.
More Happy Stamping, friends!
