I am finally back from Convention and ready to stamp with brand-new stuff to share with you! I have been patiently waiting until Convention rolled around before placing any big order from the new catalogue and preorder from the Holidays catalogue because I had a feeling SU! would be generous at the event and let us leave with new exciting products. My hunch was correct, and SU! did not disappoint!
I had placed a small order before leaving because I didn't want to miss out on redeeming my SAB freebies and it got here just as I was about to leave for convention so I'm only getting to play with its content now. The sentiment comes from the stamp set Souhaits instantanés and the cute images come from the Affranchissez en style hostess set.
The colour combo was inspired by this week's ColourQ combo: Dusty Durango + Grrovy Guava + Lucky Limeade + Crumb Cake. Since it includes retired colours, if you wanted to stick with current products or don't have those retired colours, I would suggest to use Cajun Craze + Crisp Cantaloupe (a new In Color!) + Old Olive + Crumb Cake.
The background patterned paper was embossed with the new, fun Alphabet Press embossing folder (love that one!) and the two shapes I layered to create the sentiment block were die-cut using the Big Shot and the Chalk Talk Framelits. They can be paired with the stamp set of the same name, but as you can see, they are fun to use on their own with other sets as well.
The ribbon is the 7/16'' Natural Trim, which we had in the Spring Catalogue and that carried into the annual catalogue. This would make a great masculine card, with the darker colour combo and neutral embellishments.
