Sneakin' and Peekin'

One thing I like more than stampy supplies is stampy supplies that aren't yet available to the general public!  On March 1, Stampin up pre-released some new Designer Series Paper and stamps to demonstrators (one of the wonderful perks to being a Demo, let me assure you!) and natch I had to include these in my latest order.

The paper is absolutely, positively delicious! and the stamps?  Well, they coordinate with my favorite and never-put-away Decorative Label Punch, so I KNEW I was going to love them to itty bitty pieces.

Over the next few weeks, i'll be posting projects using these dreamy new lovelies, so I hope you'll be just as enamored with these goodies as I am!

This first card is a nontraditional take on a baby shower card.  The mom-to-be has chosen to be surprised about whether her bundle of joy is a boy-bundle, or a girl-bundle, so I instead chose a more elegant approach entitled "Baby Love" (yes, the supremes are now stuck in my head >.<)

This card uses a technique that's super simple. See that "love" plaque in the center of the card?  If you were to run your fingers over it, you'd notice it's "debossed".  That means where all the letters are, it's actually indented in to the page.  This is called (dramatic pause) LETTERPRESS (cuz, like, the letters are pressed into the page n stuff... neat, eh?)  It's an old-timey technique that's been revolutionized for the Big Shot.  In this case, I'm using the Lots of Love letterpress plate,  Versamark ink, and the trusty Big Shot.

Anywho, I digress - as i tend to do when I'm talking about stuff I LUUURVE.  The Paisley Petals DSP is going to be available in the upcoming 2011 Big Catalog.  The frame surrounding "Baby" is part of "Four Frames" set of 4 stamps, each of which coordinate beautifully with the Decorative Label Punch.  This new stamp set too will be available in the new catalog.

I needa get myself back to crafting, so tune in next time for another sneakety peek!
