{ I Love My New Toys! }

Oh how do I love the new stuff that came in the mail from Stampin' Up! last night! Amongst some other stuff I got all the new In Color and I gotta say, they are so much more beautiful IRL! I also got Pick A Petal and Happy Everything, two sets I've been dieing to have! So here is my first card with the new toys! It's for today's SCS challenge to make a square card.

This card looks complex, but it's not. More than anything it was a bit time consuming. For the petals that are stamped on the Vanilla card stock I used the rock and roll technique. The Guava petals are just plain two step stamping and the top petals I used the emerging color technique and two step stamping. The two layers of petals where adhered with crystal effects on the point under the center and the ends were adhered with pop dots to give some dimension. I think I used four of the six different petals to make the flower... what a great way to show off this set huh?! The edges of the Vanilla layer are sponged with Guava and Bleu ink. Other than that it's just a bunch of layers. Hope you like.

Paper: SU Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate, Bleu Bayou, Very Vanilla
