GCA #24 - Anything New Goes!!!

Hello everyone!! For this weeks GCA we are focusing on anything NEW!!! Christmas is behind us and I know a lot of us received some Christmas $$ we just couldn't wait to spend on new stampin' goodies!!! I sure couldn't! LOL!

The challenge this week is to use at least 2 new products (stamps, cardstock, patterned paper, embellies, etc) on your creation!! And make sure you point out what those new products are!

On my sample here I used one of the new Level 2 hostess sets coming in the Spring/Summer IBC - Dream A Little, new dsp - Raspberry Tart, and the new Flower Fusion too set!!! (I've had these flowers for awhile, but I haven't used them!). I just love this new Raspberry Tart dsp, it is so luscious and yummy!!!

And this stamp set is wonderful!! The minute I saw the hummingbird I was hooked!! My card here also is for today's FS101 on SCS.

Here's what I changed:

* Stamp set, colors and orientation

* I added a layer of Raspberry Tart dsp, and while I kept the CB panel, I used a different folder and cut with my Top Note die.

* Used silver cord and placed it in a different position.

* Embossed my flower outline with silver ep.

To be entered in the challenge drawing, make a card using at least 2 new products, upload it either to your blog, or to an online gallery and post a link to your card to this blog entry as a comment by January 16, 2009 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner through a random number generator and post the next day.

Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenge and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it!If you upload your card on SCS, or Paper Craft Planet, please put GCA24(NO SPACE IN BETWEEN GCA AND 24) in the keyword section. That way everyone can look at all of the creations at once! If you've been waiting to join in the fun, jump on in and have some fun!!

Happy Stamping!!!


Please excuse the changes in my template, but I am trying to put another new one up!
