New Stuff!

Yes, I got to play with my new "stuff" today! Yay!!! I decided to play two challenges: Splitcoast's Limited Supply Challenge, and Sharon Johnson's (notimetostamp) weekly Friday challenge.
The Limited Supply challenge required that we do not stamp a holiday design: no snowflakes, Christmas trees, etc... Just a regular card. As you can see, my colors turned out pretty bright! No red or green here! I used PaperTrey Ink's Summer Sunrise cardstock for the base and picket fence (Martha Stewart Picket Fence border punch), and Basic Grey Two Scoops for the background. My image is stamped and colored with Copics on PaperTrey Ink's Vintage Cream cardstock, then diecut with Nestabilities Labels II.
Sharon challenged us to create a design using something new. Well, I received stamping goodies from my husband, Paul. Yes, he normally does not purchase stamping items for me--I was so surprised! I used Primas that he had included in my gift pack. The Sarah Kay image is also new to me. It was so much fun to color!
My design is finished off with Stampin' Up buttons and taffeta ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
