I have had this huge box staring at me from the corner of my office for over a week. I would not let myself play with anything inside until stamp camp was over. I got my first chance to play today. Here is a card I am preparing for a shoebox swap at convention I am in.
The paper is the new Bella Rose Designer Paper. I paired it with Red Riding Hood, Kiwi Kiss and Pink Pirouette (yes new colors). The stamp set used is the new Dreams du Jour set. In addition I used the new scallop edge punch, gold brads, blender pen, scallop punch and dimentionals.
The ric rac is done with the new scallop edge punch. The scallop around the image is actually two scallop circles layered on the back to give it the appearance of an oval. I colored the image (stamped in Red Riding Hood) with the blender pen using ink from the Kiwi Kiss & Pink Pirouette Classic ink pads.
Here is a peek at a sampling of items in my box:
New 2008-09 In Colors: Pink Pirouette, Red Riding Hood, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze & Pacific Point.
New Bella Rose Designer Papers & Scallop Edge Punch.
I will post more sneak peeks as I get to play some more. If you would like to pre-order any of these items please let me know. I am not able to order until August 11th, however you won't want to wait. These are great colors and accessories. (I assume SU has planned for a huge order of scallop punches, however you never know what will go on backorder when it first becomes available- hint hint). Contact me for more details.
