Two Sketches with New SU Supplies

Beate is back! I finally got a chance to play with my new SU stamps and papers from the new catalogue and what better timing then when Beate is back from her summer break with her Weekend Sketch Challenges (WSC). This is my card for Beate's WSC54. I'm really happy with the way that it turned out, it actually turned out the way I had pictured it in my mind (which doesn't seem to happen too often). The sentiment is heat embossed with white ep.

I love all of these new silhouette stamps from the new catalogue. Just a reminder too that some of these stamps, including the one in the above card, are included in the SU promotion to get 15% off never before seen new stamps. Check it out here, and email me if you would like to order (Canadians only).

I also got a chance to create a card for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #30(TECC30) using the new stamps and papers. I had to do this card very carefully since I still don't own any of the SU markers, but I like the soft look that it has. The main image is raised up on dimensionals.

Both cards are 4.25" square.

Supplies:

Stamps: SU Pocket silhouettes, Short & Sweet
Paper: SU Main Blueberry dp, old olive, bashful blue, not quite navy, ww
Ink: VersaMagic, SU old olive

Both of these cards are just gorgeous Allison! I too am in love with ALL of the silhouettes! I don't think I could ever get tired of seeing creations made with them! Also, thank you so much for the award! I will hopefully get it posted to my blog this week! You are such a sweetie and I love your work!

I really like both cards also. You used some of my favorite stamps out of the new catty.
