Cards With New Stamps...

I thought I'd split my cards into smaller posts as they are getting longer and longer each week! I'm gonna have to stop doing SO many challenges, but I love doing them!

All the cards on this post are made using some of my new stamps. I got loads of new ones this week, all by coincidence. I had a Stampin' Up delivery, a Papertrey Ink one, a few new Sugar Nellie stamps and then I bought one from my local stamp store too!

My first card uses Framed With Love from the UK mini catalogue. It's got loads of different frame stamps and one really pretty damask type design stamp. I used one of the frames for my sentiment on my pocket card for this week's Just Us Girls Technique Challenge.

And this is a photo with the insert out - I kept it quite simple as I wasn't sure what sentiment to put on it, so left it blank until I need it. I've never used this sheet from the Tall Tales DSP pack before either and it is actually really pretty.


Stamps: Framed With Love, Fresh Cuts

Papers: Brilliant Blue, Rose Red, Whisper White, Tall Tales DSP

Inks: Brilliant Blue, Rose Red

Accessories: So Saffron Striped Grosgrain ribbon, Rose Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Round Tab Punch

My next new stamp set is I {Heart} Hearts, which I didn't think I'd like at all, until I used this same flourished heart at Monica's training day a couple of weekends ago. I virtually replicated the card we made, with a few changes for the challenges I'm entering. The sketch comes from Sketch 'n' Color's #10, the colour combo comes from Color Throwdown's #91 to use Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise and Kiwi Kiss and for SCS Free For All #11 to use gel pens, although my use is not especially inventive!!!


Stamps: I {Heart} Hearts

Papers: Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red cs & DSP, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White

Inks: Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, White Gel Pen

Accessories: Tempting Turquoise Grosgrain Ribbon, Playground Buttons, Doily Lace Martha Stewart Punch

And my final new set is a special one! It's the 3rd year Anniversary set from Papertrey Ink called Round and Round. You have to order at least 14 sets from February 2009 to February 2010 to qualify for it and when my order arrived the other day I was confused as to why I had an extra set until I looked more closely at what it was! Boy was I excited as I wasn't sure if I had qualified for one or not.


Stamps: Round and Round Anniversary set from PTI

Papers: Plum Pudding, Lavender Moon, Stampers Select White, Dotty Biscotti DSP all from Papertrey Ink

Inks: Plum Pudding, New Leaf

Accessories: Plum Pudding Buttons, Purple adhesive pearls from Papermania

That's all my new stamps for today, but my next post will be showing some old ones if you fancy taking a peek!
