My good friend and downline came over last night so we could hang out and stamp. I got to use my new Dare to be Fabulous stamp set and she brought over a couple of retired sets that I have always wanted to use but have never gotten to. We had a great time! Here are my cards:
This is the card I got to make using my new favorite new set (make sense? - LOL!) I absolutely love this flower and I have seen so many great cards made with this. I have to confess that I had trouble with this card and had to redo the cutting a couple of times before I got it right, but I do like the end result. I used my in colors again - I can't seem to get enough of them! And of course, I just had to add some sparkle! Here is the recipe: (all items SU!)
Paper: Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate
Stamp Set: Dare to be Fabulous
Accessories: Dimensionals, Purely Pomegranate double stitched ribbon, Purely Pomegranate and Soft Sky stamp pads, Dazzling diamonds, liquid glue, mat pack and paper piercer,Ticket corner punch
This next card was so much fun to do - I kick myself everytime I think about the fact that I did not buy the Ruff Day set, but Vicki let me play with hers. I wanted to try the mirror image technique and I love the way it turned out! Those pups are so dang cute and I think I am going to send this card to my hubby! Here is the recipe for this one: (all items SU!)
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Ruby Red, Whisper White
Stamp Sets: Ruff Day (retired), Boatloads of Love
Accessories: Close to Cocoa and Ruby Red stamp pads and Stampin' Write markers,
Vintage Brad, Dimensionals, Ticket Corner Punch, mat pack and paper piercer

The last one is a card using another retired set but one I alas did not get! I think it is so cute and was sad that it retired. This is a simple card but I liked the way it turned out! Here is the recipe: (all items SU!)
Paper: Ruby Red, So Saffron, Whisper White
Stamp Sets: Best of Cluck (retired)
Accessories: Black Stazon and More Mustard Stamp Pads, Ruby Red Brads, Sponge, Corner Rounder, Dimensionals
