Playing with my new toys!

Oh, and are they fun! My second favorite man paid me a visit... Mr. Brown. (Of course Ray is my very favorite, but he never comes to the door carrying a Stampin' Up box in his arms.) I finally ordered the new alphabet that I've been eyeing since the new catty came out. So I quickly cut and mounted the new stamps, all 84 stamps between the three sets (ABC Alpha Upper / Lower / and ABC Images), and began playing. I think there is a real versatility in these stamps, but for me now, they scream Kindergarten and back to school. So here is another teacher card I whipped up.....




The size of this card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" square. I glued a strip of cardstock in the standard envelope so this little guy wouldn't slide around. To jazz it up a bit, I punched a 1" circle in the envelope so the paper peeks through. Then, just to top it off, I created another apple image and "popped" it up in the circle. If you're wondering, I used Brocade Blue paper and ink, I used the blender pens to color in the apple and the background of the card is the Flannel Plaid BG stamp. Enjoy!

Wow, you have a few things up here that I was on the fence about until I saw what you have done with them!
