With All My Heart!

NEW TOYS!!! Stampin' Up! has done it again and brought out some WONDERFUL things in the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog. Redesigned punches, Epoxy Brads, Shimmery DSP and Clear-Mount Stamps. Yep, you read that right. Clear mount stamps. Now, the stamps are rubber just like they've always been, but they are unmounted to use with clear blocks. And the block set we have is fantabulous!!!! And SU! designed labels for the back of the stamp so you can see the image while stamping, just like with the wood block label. TOO COOL!! watch your mail for your copy of the mini-arriving soon!!!

More details on all the above items after January 4. Here though, is the card I created for my monthly swap using the new set, With All My Heart. Oh, one more note: SU! is not forcing you to go unmounted, we still have wood. You have your choice on all the new mini sets of Clear Mount or Wood mount. And wait til you see the cool storage cases for the clear-mount sets!!

OK, the card!

Two versions, the only difference being the brad. Each set of Epoxy Brads has two designs. The Real Red set measure 1/2" and has the two shown here, one heart, one polka dot. There are two other sets: Pretty In Pink (1/2"), and Chocolate Chip (1/4").

Card base is Real Red, background layer is Very Vanilla. I used a DSP piece for the bottom half, layered over the Very Vanilla. Notice the bottom edge of the red print-New Pinking Hearts Border punch. The DSP pack is called Sending Love Specialty and every page has something sparkly on it! The top of the Vanilla was stamped with Real Red using two of the flowery images. Edges are sponged with Real Red and I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the center of each using my 2-way glue pen. The friend image near the bottom was stamped on Very Vanilla, punched with the Large Oval, sponged and attached to a Real Red Scallop punch. The oval is layered on with Dimensionals. Very Vanilla wide grosgrain around the center before attaching the background layer, and the new Sending Love Epoxy Brad in Real Red.

Off to do some Holiday baking. The Boss called and told me to stay home today due to weather so I'm going to cook and clean. Merry Christmas!!
