Another SU Playday!

Is this not beautiful and its such a simple little card. First Saturday of every month I get to go to Brenda's for Stampin UP play day and I made some really cute stuff this month. I don't sell SU anymore but I still love the stuff so I enjoy going to learn new ideas. Brenda is a happy go lucky lady that makes everyone laugh so its never a dull moment.
The first card is Very Vanilla with a embossed Pretty in Pink layer, we then used the beautiful new border punch from the Sale-a-bration (love this amazing little delicate punch. We layered the new Sending Love Specialty paper in the new SU Occasions mini catalog, then we tied the new satin red ribbon on. Last step was to stamp two hearts from the 'Always' Stamp Set on Very Vanilla in Real Red ink. We cut them out and Wow so very cute!!!
The second card is made out of Mellow Moss (I know that the picture looks greener but it is) I used the new Scallop Trim border punch that you can earn free during the Sale-a-bration with SU. I'm afraid I wasn't paying attention to the name of the DSP we used but we used the new SU satin ribbon in Certainly Celery and then used the new 'Garden from the Heart' stamp set in the new mini catalog. I used watercolor pencils to color my hat and gloves then cut them out and adhered them with pop dots. I forgot to stamp a salutation but again the card is so precious.

The third and four project we made were quick and simple little treats for your co-workers, neighbor kids, students or whoever. We used the Whoo's Your Valentine? SU Stamp set. We used Pretty in pink stamped the circle that says 'I am a sucker for you!' punched out the circle center put a sucker in the cardstock and all done. The 'Chew, chew, I like you!' package is a cello bag full of goodies with a Top Note die cut. We folded the top note in half then stamped the train, we colored it with Stamp write pens and attached it together with a stapler.
Like I said before Brenda is a hoot and I really enjoy the camaraderie of the other 6 or 7 other ladies that attend the Play day. I think SU is moving in the right direction with all their new products and it must be an exciting time for the SU demo's. Gotta scoot but I'll try to be back sooner, I know I haven't been posting very regularly lately but I'm dealing with some personal stuff right now but I'll be better honest.
God Bless.
