My box of new SU goodies arrived today, and I am H A P P Y !!! Lookie:
OMG. Do you see all that RRRRRRRRRRRIBBON?!?!?! Here's the new In Color style this year:
Sorry the photo is fuzzy. I was holding the ribbon in one hand and trying to take the pic with my other, and I was shaking with delight, so, well, it's a blur. But you get the idea, right?
Here's some of the new satin ribbon:
This is one of the new Simply Sent kits that I HAD to get:
Yes, I got the coordinating stamp set, too. You 'll see this again, momentito.
This guy will see paper before the weekend:
Oh, yes. I have bigbigbig plans for this guy. You can see some of the new bling at the top of the pic.
When I ordered this new Neutrals DSP stack, I thought it was 6x6, since I didn't read the description, but nope - it's 12x12:
YAY! More paper than I'll ever use in my lifetime! Ohboy!
In a Good Demo Moment, I bought one each of the Sizzix organizers. This is the small one:
... and here is what it looks like closed:
I also have bigbigbig plans for these, but I'll devote another post to my organization attempts.
Are you ready for some cards? Here is one:
This uses the Greenhouse Gala DSP, the Friends Never Fade set (which I didn't pre-order), and some of the new taffeta ribbon. I used the rock-n-roll technique on the flower, with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie inks.
And here are the cards from the Simply Sent kit. First, the vanilla one:
... and the yellow one:
I used Soft Suede ink with the Engraved Greetings stamp set. This is seriously heavy-weight card stock. And it's like Letterpress - textured... really rich-feeling. Since there are only 4 of each card in the kit, I strongly advise the use of the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to align the greeting. I actually thought of that before I stamped it. (I need to rough up the stamp a bit so it stamps a little smoother. Or I could say I meant to do that ...)
That's it for tonight, but I do have another FIVE-DAY WEEKEND ahead, so after tomorrow, you'll see a LOT more of the new stuff. Promise.
Thanks for stopping by!
