New Things

Hi Stampers,

I'm sorry it's been such a long time since my last post. Wow! I looked back and it's been almost a month! I generally post around mid month with pictures made from my Paper Pumpkin, but mine came late, and then I was in the midst of making cards for swaps.

This is one of the swaps I'm involved in. Actually, it's a virtual swap because it's all on-line! It's called a Blog Hop.

The blog challenge was titled "CELEBRATE THE NEW".
The challenge was to use new Stampin' Up! products for our cards.
I was able to use almost all new products for my card, but I did have to fall back on the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine (whisper white) from the last Occasions catalog.

Here is the 'recipe' to make this card:

Stamp Set:
Sprinkles of Life

Tip Top Taupe
Watermelon Wonder

Designer Paper:
Cherry on Top 6 x 6 pack

Crushed Curry
Early Espresso

Accessories: Whisper White cotton twine and Dazzling Details

I used the Watermelon Wonder and a blender pen to color the 2 side cupcakes, but the photo doesn't do the color justice. The color is brighter and pinker then as it appears. It's also hard to see, but I used the dazzling details on the flames of the candles. (I used a color pencil to color the flames.)

In a week or so, I'll post pictures of other cards that I made for other swaps, but first there is another new thing in my life. I have to (get to!) visit my newest granddaughter.

Enjoy all  the new things that are happening in your life and hop on over to the other blogs to see some more great cards!  Click here: VC Rocks! to connect to the blog hop.
