Anyway, I managed to get a little playtime yesterday so that I could make a card for Steve's aunt Viv and got a few others made as well (no pic of that card until after her birthday which, by coincidence, is shared by her great niece Rhiannon).
First, the reason for the expedited order - Pony Party!! Is this not just the perfect set for little girls?? I know that Rhiannon will love it. I am also really loving the new Kaleidoscope paper (used below). I know it isn't everyone's taste but, if you have little girls, it is just fabulous!
Cardstock & DP - Pixie Pink, Pink Passion, Only Orange, Whisper White. Kaleidoscope DP
Inks - Black Stazon, Pixie Pink & Pink Passion markers
Accessories - Lots and lots of Dazzling Diamonds!! Modern Label punch, Slot punch, Scallop Edge punch, Dimensionals.
This is also a new 2-step stamping set from the new catalog called Greenhouse Garden. I think it is now a firm favorite and works beautifully for using the stamping off technique.
I loved the card idea from the new catalog that used this set so decided to CASE it
Stamp Sets - Greenhouse Garden, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock & DP - Bashful Blue, Mellow Moss, Whisper White. Bashful Blue DP (from a retired hostess pack)
Inks - Bashful Blue, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Brocade Blue, Mellow Moss.
Accessories - Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon, Dimensionals, Word label punch
The same set but using a different color scheme. I can't stop using this new In Color, Rich Razzleberry.
Cardstock & DP - Rich Razzleberry textured, Whisper White, Old Olive. Razzleberry Lemonade DP.
Inks - Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Dusty Durango
Accessories - Old Olive satin ribbon (retired), Scallop Oval punch, Dimensionals
Finally, another favorite of mine, Bird on a Branch, with some new colors
Stamp Sets - Bird on a Branch, Short & Sweet.
Cardstock & DP - Bermuda Bay textured, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla. Thoroughly Modern DP
Inks - Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede.
Accessories - Soft Suede and Bermuda Bay polka dot ribbons, Filigree brad, Dimensionals
That's all for now. I'm off to see if I can come up with some more ideas for these fun goodies.
