Hello There!

I am so happy that I can get beautiful BROWN glitter from Stampin' Up! I was so excited when I was reading the colors of the new glitter packs!! The Fine Supernova glitter pack comes with chocolate, olive, orange, pink, and aqua glitter...delicious!! So, the desire to use my new chocolate glitter-and the fact that I also got the new sweet sticky cuts-turned on my motivation for this card!

I started with a chocolate chip card for my base. In my need to play with new toys, I ran my kiwi kiss layer through the Big Shot with one of my new Stampin' Up! backgrounds texture plates! I love the big polka dots and little polka great to get two textures on one plate!! I love that the plates are such a big size--about 5x7" so it allows you to get all or part of your paper embossed, and I love the ability you have to choose how much of your paper to emboss! I only did the right 1/2 of this kiwi layer. I tied the kiwi layer with some chocolate taffeta For my flower, I layered one of the sticky cut flowers on chocolate chip cardstock sprinkled it with glitter, then cut the flower out. My kiwi stem is part of the branch from the Cheep Talk stamp set. I did't want the leaves, so I just omitted that part of the stamp when I was of the great things the SU ink pads allow you to do! I stamped the kiwi kiss branch (stem)on ww cardstock, then determined where I wanted my sentiment-also form the Cheep Talk stamp set-and stamped the sentiment. The last step was to attach my flower with a dimensional.

We've been busy with Grandma and Grandpa--just finished a great lunch downtown Munich--at Hard Rock Cafe. We were talking about where to go, and my 6 yr. old son said, "let's go to Hard Rock Cafe, that is my FAVORITE place to eat Grandpa--it's really rockin'!" It was fun...isn't that such a fun place!? Makes me feel at matter where in the world you are!!

Thanks for stopping by...have a super day!!
