TSSC Challenge 169

Good Morning!! 

Don't you always love getting new toys?  And better yet - I earned my toys for FREE this month...  I promoted to Manager and received a $150 product bonus.  So I ordered from the new Summer Mini catalog!!  Time to play!!

This is Mary Jo's sketch challenge this week at

I used the new Designer paper Beyond the Garden with the new embossing powder in Melon Mambo.  I love that SU has come out with Embossing powders that match our great summer colors - Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi and Tangerine Tango!  What great colors for the summer! 

The stamped image is from the hostess set  - Cute by the Inch.  I used the new postage stamp punch that is in the Summer mini.  Makes me think that there will be some cute postage type sets in the new IB&C in July!!  Just 3 months until the new catalog is here...
I couldn't decide if I liked the card better with the layer of pacific point blue under the designer strip or not.  I just received my digital copy of the splitcoast newsletter today and opened it up and saw this technique profiled for this week.  Funny - so this technique is called faux fabric.

So stay tuned for more samples with the new things!

Happy Stampin'
