Well, it's finally here! Salebration! I'm not sure how most feel, but this time of year, the biggest promotion of the year for SU! is "almost" as exciting as the NEW CATALOG in June. It's hard to compare, but I am always excited beyond the stars for BOTH~
So, I am part of a group of demonstrators that are called SU! Trip Achievers and we have a swap each time a new catalog comes out, so three times a year, I join for two groups of swaps in which I have to make 16 cards for each group (so 32 cards) and receive 32 BACK! It's awesome to be able to get a ton of samples to display without having to come up with 32 different cards on my own.
So, anyway, this is one of mine! I love Valentine's Day, and so when I went to OnStage in Novemember, this set was offered as a preorder for those who attended, along with the DSP. One of the perks of being a demo is getting to PREORDER a month before the catalogs go live.

So for this card, I used several new things and blended with some "seasoned" product. I made my card out of Real Red card stock and added a layer of Basic Black.  I ran my Whisper White through the Big Shot with the new Falling Petals Embossing Folder and then turned the image around so it's the concave side of the hearts is displayed.  I then added a strip of Sending Love DSP(new product) and wrapped some Basic Black Thick Baker's Twine to it and tied a bow.
I cut the circles from the Layering Circles and the Stitched Framelits(white piece).  I stamped the hearts from the Sealed with Love, the hearts are in a straight line, but since they are Photopolymer, I was able to bend and manipulate them onto the block to make them curved, I stamped them in Real Red ink.  I used the sentiment from the same stamp set and used Momento Black ink.  I punched a Silver Glimmer Heart with the Large Heart Punch.
So, I hope by now that you have a set of new catalogs in hand and I've inspired you to find something to purchase. Tomorrow I am going to show my other swap.
Thanks for stopping by.
