Valentine's & Stampin' Up!

Well I wasjust so beside myself all morning as I waited for the noon hour open of express ordering on the Stampin' Up! Demonstrators website. After that i'm sure the flood gates opened in Utah...Thousands of orders pouring in....and one of them was mine!! Ok two, but whatever! One was a supply Order (where I happen to order some of the upcoming Sale-a-bration sets) and the second one was from the catty. Here is a short list of the goodies I will be waiting for..Sealed with a Kiss, Forever Flowers Wheel, It's Beautiful Wheel (have to have it to match the stamp set right? and the rub ons, right? Right.) Boho Backgrounds, One of a kind (and the matching blossoms punch, of course) Pretty Petals background, Smarty Pants, Simple Serif Mini Alphabet, Berry Bliss DSP, Bali Breeze DSP, Rose Red Prints DSP, and of course, The Valentine's Bundle. Now the next 2 weeks should be the longest of the year...hehe ok the year is new but it will still be long! hmmffft! ok I will go pout somewhee else now...LOL.

Onto the Cards! This first card took my breath away for a minute. I fel in love with the design and absolutely HAD to make it. I don't like my version AS much but I dont hve the particular stamps from Papertrey Ink used to make this card, Yet! Shipping to Canada takes to long, but totally worth the wait. Anywho, I cased this card from Heather Nichols (One of the Papertrey Ink Designers) from the Inkpad Online Gallery at Papertrey ~HERE~ I think the next time I make this card I will stamp the heart onto W/W-C/S and cut it out and put it on with SU Dimensionals.

SU Supplies: Loving Hearts Stamp set (retired), Kraft, Whisper White, Real Red C/C, Whisper White Craft, Real Red Classic Ink, Dimensionals & Silver Cord. Other Supplies: Dashes dots & Checks red polka dot ribbon, MM Pewter Heart Brads, G studio Stamp (sentiment), Charm ? sorry I can't remember ;)

Ok Next! This card came out of my own head, However the simplicity was inspired. I regularly go and see Kristina's Blog and I LOVE her designs. She always keeps it simple because she "likes it that way" as stated in her latest video Q & A. :) Well I like it too! So this is my version of a simple card that is still astonishing (wow a big word and everything....maybe I spelled it wrong HAHA). I think this card actually took about 10 minutes to make from start to finish. WOW. Ok so I need to K.I.S.S. cards more often.

I also think I might try this style in Blue as well. Gotta have a few cards kickin' around for thr guys right? If I do that I will post it

SU Supplies: Whisper White C/S, Creamy Caramel C/S, Rose Red Prints DSP, Versamark, 15/16 Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon (retired), Dimensionals.

Other Supplies: M.S.E. "U" Stamp, Heidi swapp Chipboard Letters, Anonymous Heart Stamp?, Stampendous White Emboss Powder.

Last but not least, for now (I can't do them all of them I would have no time to stamp new ones) So another original design. I had two goals in mind when making this card.
1)Make a card with ALL SU products.
2)Use the NEW STAMPIN UP Rub Ons that have been sitting here in the unopened package for over a week! (INSANE, I KNOW!!)
AND I DID IT!! whoop whoop!! haha lagh, but I have a hard time because I have so many things I want to use. I almost always use ribbon on my cards but I only have 3 types of SU ribbon. 2 more weeks and I will have 3 more!
So this card DOES use ONLY Su products. The flower and sentiment layers are popped up with dimensionals. All the black except the sentiment are rub ons from the Eastern elegance Set.
Supplies: Very Vanilla, Rose Red, Cameo Coral C/S, Close to Cocoa Prints DSP, A beautiful thing Stamp Set (new 2008), Purely Pom Classic Ink, Bask Black Classic Ink, Dimensional, ticket corner punch.
Thanks for stopping by, until next time ~ Jewels
