New SU goodies!

*Note- No one is paying me for my endorsement of products or stores, I just love to share my love of these things with others! :) Honest!
I got my HUGE order on Thursday Night but didn't get to mount them until Saturday. Mounting is a little more difficult for me because I am going the unmounted route and mounting die cut stamps on ez mount can be a sticky nightmare. However, Christine and Amy over at

have recommended the For Her Creative Hot Knife and I decided it would make my life easier! This hot knife (and it is super hot!) cuts like through like butter! It's awesome. Plus, I mounted 8 sets on 1 and a 1/2 sheets of ez mount because you can get so close!!

I'll be honest, I am having a hard time using all of my SU goodies :( I am having to battle the "you can only use SU stamps with SU paper and SU ink and..." I hate when I get like this. I can do the same thing with CTMH and TAC. Someone come over and help free me! :) I did break out the new stamps and paper though and made two quick cards.

The first is for SCS CC204A- old olive, creamy caramel, and cameo coral. These are all faves of mine!

Supplies- Stamps: Cheep Talk by SU; CS- SU Earth Elements; Ink- SU Choc. Chip, night of navy, creamy caramel, cameo coral, and old olive; Other- SU texture plate, CB, Top Note Die, sponge, dimensionals.

I also had to use one of my new fave sets, Sip by Sip. I love the vintage feel. It's gorgeous. I finally got the Sweet Always DP and knew these colors and the pattern went with my vintage feel :) Oh, the other great thing about mounting on ez mount is I could separate sentiments from images, and separate images- like the 3 cups were one that I made 3.

Supplies- Stamps- SU's Sip by Sip; CS- Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White; DP- Sweet Always; Ink- Choc Chip, Pretty in Pink, Pumpkin Pie; Other- CB, Nestabilities Label 2 Dies.

Again, I LOVE this set.. I can't wait to do more!!

Thanks for looking.. I am now at 87 posts, I think I'll have to have some blog candy at 100!
