Slowing Breaking It In!

I got a new stamp set on Friday. Last night I finally sat down and mounted it on the blocks. I didn't have to cut it out because Stampin' Up! did the die cut thing on this set. I LOVE it when they do that. The set is called "Fresh Cuts" and will be in the new Stampin' Up! Catalog coming out soon!! Not soon enough for some. I believe it is August 1st that it will be available. I'm so confused on the dates of things now because of the two catalogs a year thing. But then again it doesn't take much to confuse me!!! LOL

For this card (a very quick and simple card!) I used the "Paisley" background stamp with white embossing powder. After it cooled I attached the ribbon and tied a knot. Then I used the "for you" words from the new set and punched them out (a bit crooked too - I'll have to fix that - I didn't notice it until I saw it on the photo UGH!!!). Anyway, I liked the words and how they fit into the oval perfectly. And if you like this little stamp, wait until you see the rest of them!!! Now it's a matter of using the other 4 stamps in the set!!! LOL I plan on playing with them later tonight.

This really was a quick card to make. The embossing took a few minutes because it added an extra step but the background needed something more than just plain.

I will be posting the "Chatty Cathy" Blog Candy tomorrow. I have 800+ posts now!!! WOW, I can't believe I've had that many posts!!! I also have some fun cards and projects coming up too. And I will have some things from the Stamp Share to show you too. LOTS of new things happening here!!!

This card was made entirely of Stampin' Up! products. To view more items made entirely of Stampin' Up! products click here
