Good Friend, Trendy Trees and Polka Dots

Today is the day I share with you some of what I've been up to down in my craft room. I ordered three stamp sets (one is still on backorder) and I've been having fun playing with the two I do have. Good Friend and Trendy Trees were the first sets that jumped out at me. I had to have them. You saw the cute, giant bird on yesterday's card. Along with that bird, there are some really cool retro flowers. To be honest, it was the flowers that really called my name. So here is the first card I made with this set. Also new on this card are the wonderful corduroy buttons and the yummy Jumbo brads. I got both sizes and this one is the 5/16. The scallop strip is some dsp from the Good Morning Sunshine pack. I think this has to be my all time favorite pattern of SU dsp.
Here is the first card I did with my Trendy Trees set. I wanted to use this polka dot paper from the Urban Oasis dsp, so that is where my colors came from. I do love this set, but was a little disappointed when I realized I HAD to use my SAMJ (stamp-a-majig) with it. Normally I can wing it without using this tool, but nope, not with this set. Now that I've done it a few times, I've got it down and the extra step with the SAMJ isn't bothering me. The end result is just too cute to get worked up over the SAMJ, LOL! That GIANT brad is one of the new ones, it is a 5/8 size. So now you can see the difference in size between the two. And just because I was into the polka dots, I have this card to share too. This paper is from the Rockability Specialty dsp pack (honestly, I ordered this paper for this patter, but am in love with all the other patterns now that I've seen them IRL)

Check out that satin ribbon! YUMMY! It's all about the accessories in this catty! Thanks for stopping by! I'll have more SUO, new catty goodies to share tomorrow!

Hugs, Lisa
