You raise me up!


Are you tired of my Creative Cuts and More butterflies yet?? This one was cut from DoubleMates, giving me two colors to choose from, then I ran it through the bug with the Swiss Dots folder. It was the perfect thing to fill up an empty space on this card.

I used two sets from Gina K Designs here, Eclectic Summer, and Eclectic Summer Sayings. ES is such a versatile stamp set. I have really enjoyed using it, and I haven't even used all the stamps yet! GKD has a new StampTV kit coming out today. I have the first two. Will I get number three? You betcha (said in a Wisconsin accent!) As soon as it's up for sale, it will be mine!

The base of this card is Brilliant Blue, the kites were stamped on Naturals White, and the rest of the card is Kaleidoscope by My Mind's Eye. I have been having a good time with this MME line from 2006 lately. It's really the perfect summer paper, especially for boys. I don't truly enjoy brights or boy cards, but Kaleidoscope takes up the slack for me. (To give you an idea of how little I use my brights, this BB CS is from a Bold Brights pack I bought in 2000. Yep, nine years ago! At least when I was a demo, I could use the Brights for workshops, but now I have seven years worth of SU! cardstock to use up! It's good stuff though, so that's okay!) Even though the colors are way out of my comfort zone, I just like the whole MME line enough to make it work with my SU!BBrights! Now if only I could find some brights that are a little more current!

What a vibrant card! Keep using your stash of brights. Maybe I'll start using the glossy cardstock that I HAD to buy in 2001.
