Fun New Stamps!!

Good morning friends! Happy Wednesday! I'm excited today...NEW Lizzie Anne Stamps are being shown today...the release starts Friday...fun, fun, fun! There will be 4 new sets avaliable in this release, and they are all really fun stamps to play with!!

Today I'm showing you some of the Fancy Flourishes and some images from Way Up North. This first card is showing the Fancy Flourishes. There are some other sets at work on this card too, Oh, Christmas Tree and Holiday Script.
I stamped my white cardstock layer with one of the Fancy Flourishes. I used turquoise ink...I love that combo with olive and red...so festive! Next, used my EK success wide scallop border punch on some olive cardstock and then attached it to my red card base. I used some red grosgrain ribbon to covere the seam, and then added a turquoise button with an olive brad for the center.

I stamped my tree with turquoise ink as well, and then mouned it on turquoise and then red cardstock and added it to my card. My sentiment was stamped in turquoise ink, the punched out with my large oval punch, then layered on a turquoise scalloped oval punch and then an olive wide oval punch. I added my sentiment to the card with dimensionals.

This next card is featuring the Way Up North stamp set. I made a white card base, then layerd some red cardstock and a layer of dsp from the current SU hoiliday mini catalog. A strip of sticky strip to hold my 5/8" red grosgrain in place and a little bow with a button for some added detail. I added a layer of red dsp, mounted on white and then added 3 white punched snowflakes. I added some rhinestone brads for some glistening detail on my snow flakes.

I stampe the igloo image and then colored in the accents with makers. I mounted the igloo onto olive cardstock and added it to my card. I stamped the sentiment and used my large oval and scallop ovals to make a perfect home for it!

With all this working on my Christmas card stack...I feel a dose of hot chocolate coming on! Hope you're having a great day! Be sure to check out the other Design Team blogs to see more great samples for this release!! Thanks for stopping by!
