I Have New Toys

I love my old toys, but it's so much more exciting to play with new toys don't ya think?

I used the Friends Never Fade stamp set that opened today. It's on p. 99 of the new Idea Book & Catalog. I just love this little flower! It's a clear mount set. I really love being able to see where I am stamping.

The embossing folder is new too. Mr. Brown brought it today. I love how it has such a deep embossing! It's called Elegant Lines and it's on p. 214.

I also used new colors. The base card is Pear Pizzazz. I used the Daffodil Delight ink pad and made direct to paper squiggles on a 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Whisper White. I laid a piece of Daffodil Delight 1/4" grosgrain ribbon over that and matted it on a piece of 1 3/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Concord Crush.

I inked the flower with Concord Crush and stamped off, then inked the stems & leaves in Pear Pizzazz. This was stamped on the medium oval from the Ovals Original Dies. I cut two large ovals, one from Daffodil & one from Concord. I had to trim the Daffodil one down a bit to get the look I wanted.

I finished off the card with 3 dew drops (non SU).

These are the colors for the SCS Color Challenge this week. Dew Drops were the dessert.

Bonnie, oh how pretty! You did a great job with the color challenge at SCS. I don't have the official really new colors yet, so if I play I shall have to improvise. I like the softness of your card. And I am ordering that embossing folder and can't wait to play with it too!
