A LITTLE SMOOCH....NO, NOT THAT KIND!

Hah!! I bet you thought I was giving away kisses, didn't ya??!! heehee, nope, just playing with some fab new product from the Summer Mini and finding it VERY addicting, LOL!!!!  There is lots going on with this card so I am going to tell you what I did!! First, I used a Chocolate Chip base because I wanted to play with the Log Cabin Smooch and it works beautifully on this color!! I chose to use the new stamp set from the Summer Mini called Elements of Style - it is definitely a new favorite for me! I stamped the image in versamark on the base and then added gold embossing powder, then heat set it to give the card a rich background.  Next, I used the brand new embossing folder Square Lattice on a piece of Very Vanilla that is cut out with the Top Note die and let me tell you, it makes me squeal!!!! I LOVE the effect and it totally changes the texture of your paper, it almost feels like cloth!! I then smooch spritzed using the Log Cabin and found out:  a little goes a long way, lol!!! It is beautiful though, totally sparkles all over!  Here is a close-up, just click to enlarge and you can get some of the effect!  Nothing like in person though - you WILL need this product!!!! I then stamped my image in Pretty in Pink, covered it in versamark, then added some clear embossing powder and heat set it.  I did the same thing with the bird image except the bird is stamped in chocolate chip.  Added a few embellies and done!! I am very happy with this card, I just love all the new fun things in this mini!!! And, you all can order in just a few days because THIS MINI GOES LIVE ON MAY FIRST, WHOOOHOOO!!!  I really hope you are enjoying some of the previews from this fun mini because I will be back with two more samples tomorrow to share!!
