OK, so you are probably thinking, "Why in the world would Lisa (Ms. CTMH) make a card using Stampin' Up products?" Well, to be honest I have liked many of their images for a long time and have always been curious about their products. I have a friend who is a SU! Demonstrator and she told me about the sale-a-bration promo that is going on right now, so I figured that now would be the time to try out some of their products. I actually got a bunch of different things including a few stamp sets, some patterned paper, rub-ons, punches, and a few other small things.
This is the first card I made with their products. I used SU's Berry Bliss paper, and One of a Kind and Short & Sweet stamp sets. (Love the cute sayings and images in the Short & Sweet set.) I was a little bummed about having to cut the rubber and mount them myself. I knew that their stamps came that way, but never realized what a pain it would be. If I had as many SU! stamps as I do CTMH stamps, I'll bet at least half of them would still be unmounted.
In any case, I got a few mounted and starting playing with them . I think I am a little spoiled with my clear stamps because I found it a bit hard to know where my image would end up. I used rubber stamps a few years ago but have since been using clear stamps, so stamping with these woodies was a bit awkward. I still love the images and will continue to use them, but probably not as much as I thought.
I wanted to add something in the middle of the flower so I used a sentiment from Papertrey's Mixed Messages set. (It's one of my favs!) I also wanted to add a small window charm but my CTMH ones were to big and the ones I have from Joann's are very yellow. Oh well, I will figure out something...
