It's been a busy day around here, so I didn't know if I would get a chance to stamp. But when I saw Kerry's Use It Up Challenge, I knew I had to squeeze in a card. I'm a paper collector. Each time a new SU catalog comes out, I buy packs and packs, so this challenge was perfect.
We had to use some patterned paper that we have had for at least one year, and we had to use 2 different sheets. Now here's the amazing thing...for those who know me, I rarely stray from SU products. Not because I feel such a great loyalty, but just because I love their stuff. Since I've been a demo for 6 years now, I always figured if I was going to spend my stamping money, I might as well spend it on things I can show my customers. This is the first year though, that I am not actively demoing, so I can use retired products and non-SU, and I can stamp just for the fun of it.
So, everything is SU, except for the patterned paper, and the stamp set is retired :) (Lively Little Ones).
Don't forget to visit Kerry's blog, to check out the great samples posted and play along for the challenge!
Oh, and one more thing. I was late getting into the Big Shot movement, but have to tell you how much I love that machine! The texture plates and texture folders are such a fast and easy way to add dimension and *funness* (I don't think that's a word) to a card. I added a close up of the background for you to see.
