1st Stampin' Up Card!


I had my first Stampin' Up goodies delivered about 10 days ago and have been struggling to use them ...... mainly because I didn't want to cut up the cardstock! My darling daughter finally had to dare me to cut into it and I eventually managed to do it. I have limited SU resources still ... just card and punches and only one stamp set ... so have added some paper flowers from my stash. The cardstock used is Chocolate Chip and So Saffron and I love the look of them together. I used my Martha Stewart doily punch as well : ) I tried inking the edges of the card because I found it a bit too plain as it was, but now wished I hadn't bothered because the coloured ink pads I've got are complete rubbish ...... I have SU ones on my wish list!

Awww Teri welcome to the wonderful world of SU... you don't need SU stamps to use the papers and card stock... i use it for every thing.. they are so yummy... i have a little tip for you Teri... try buying the Pastels, you'll get all of the colours and if you get the chalk enhancer it works just like ink and for a fraction of the price.. you can get the inkpads later...i've got them...if you don't get them with in the next couple of months let me know, i'm going to be a SU demonstater and will get a new set of pastels, you can have my old set.. hows that for joining in a candy...hehehehe by the way, i'm coming to take your gorgeous doggies home with me.. OMG they are just the most adorable thing i've seen well since i just looked over at my babies anyway.....they really are stunning...thank you for joining my candy giveaway Teri, good luck.. Crafty hugs Tina x
