I finally got my little hands on one of the new Stampin Up sets out of the new catty called "For All You Do". This is a very versatile set that I am sure I will be reaching for again and again. For this card I used the new In-Colors Rich Razzleberry, and Melon Mambo. I will admit I was not crazy about the In-Colors when I first saw them online, but now that I have all of the ink pads and have seen the colors for myself they really are beautiful! I used my Stampamajig to place the 3 dot squares on the left hand side of my card. I tried to eyeball it but that didn't work out well, and after having to re-cut 3 pieces of card stock I knew I would have to get out my Stampamajig. I sponged "Soft Suede" around the scalloped oval. The sentiment was stamped on a square piece of card stock, and then I used a small wooden dowel to curl the ends for the "scroll" and again I used a sponge to distress the edges.
Now on to my SUPER flea market finds!!
I bought everything in this picture for $10, yep, can you believe that?A scrolls acrylic stamp set, 7 Cuttlebug Cuttle Kids dies, 3 very nice Cuttlebug Metal Dies, several packs of fancy Prima Flowers and rhinestones, and several packs of misc stickers and rub-ons. I could not believe it! Now, we went to another flea market and I found this:
Yup, a Cricut Expression!! I was jumping for joy (inside of course), and took a gamble since I bought it used, but we got it home, plugged it in, and I have been cutting out flowers and letters every since. LOL. Now, what did I pay for it you ask, well, it was more then $10..lol No, I talked them down from $125, down to $90. What an awesome deal!!! I am planning on purchasing the SVG software so that I can cut out any shape, letter, and design possible so that I won't have to buy the expensive cartridges. So all in all I would say this past weekend was a BIG success! I will be selling most of the $10 lot on Ebay and using that to pay for my Cricut so I am very excited about that! Anyways, thank you for sharing in my joy! Have a great day and thank you for visiting my blog!
