new stamps are in the house!

Hey stampers!  How's it going?  Look what came on Friday:

WooHoo!  New stamps are in the house!  And punches!  And paper!  And inks!   And ribbon!  And dies!  WooHoo! 

My wonderful hubby gave me the okay to spend a few bucks and get some NEW things from the NEW CATALOG.  Sometimes he is really nice to me.  Just kidding......

It literally took me 2 weeks to figure out what to get.  There are so many choices and I wanted to make good decisions.  Of course once it all got here all I could do it look at it and touch it and feel overwhelmed because I got so much new stuff.

Here is what I got.  Its alot.  I'm kind of embarrassed.  Don't judge ;)

Saturday I got a push to make a birthday card for one of my son's friends.  You'll be proud of me, I didn't put the age on it. 

Old, retired happy birthday stamp.  Going gray (retired), basic black and basic gray cardstock.  Black Stazon ink.  Wide oval punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, hemp, NEW NEUTRALS DESIGNER DSP, hemp and dimensionals.

This kid is a music whiz.  They have a little garage band.  I'll take a newer pic and show you someday.  They can really rock it out. 

I don't have the guitar stamp that we carry so I had to make do with something more personal.  I went online and found a specs diagram for the guitar he uses mostly.  Then found a color image of the same guitar. 

This card came out a funky size.  It ended up being 4x7 and fit in a business size envelope. 

I wanted to add the little guitar to add some color but I was having a heck of a time with it.  I finally just started putting shapes together and came up with this tag.  Its a wide oval and a 1 1/4" circle. 

See this striped paper?  This is from the Neutrals Designer DSP pack.  I thought it was very hard to see the patterns on the paper in the catalog so I took some close ups for you:

This text is some kind of poem.  Wait, let me go look at the SU! website and see if I can find out what it is.  Be right back............................Nope, couldn't find any info.  So I just sent them a quick email asking what it is.  I'll let you know.

Alrighty then, I'll be showing you some new creations soon. 

Thanks for stopping by.  I love it when you do that.

Blessings, b.
