Flip card - prototype

Here's a card I made with my silhouette.  I used a silhouette cut file by Lori Whitlock.  I modified it a little.   I also used some REALLY old patterned papers as this is a prototype I was experimenting with.  I think these are about 6 years old.   It's come in handy for my daughter's craft projects, but once in a while I'll use it for a prototype.

Here's a card I made for my Dad.  This is also another entry for Kim Kesti's challenge.
My new items are the patterned paper and the best new thing ever - my Silhouette Cameo that I used to cut the word and front panel!  My old supplies are the baker's twine, the star punches (really old) and the card stock.

i have no idea...

okay so Kim Kesti posted a challenge heads up to create a card using a brand new product and a product from stash. The official challenge isn't up yet so I have no idea what else she'll have in store. Perfect timing for me because I've got lots of new things and lots of things in my stash. Here's my card. I used several new things on this card including the new very cool Stampin' Up! Ex Libre background stamp and the new butterfly punch and coordinating stamp set Papillon Potpourri.  I also used the new paper piercing template (kind of hidden under the circle) and the Apothecary Accent Framelit dies, 2 new ink colors - Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green, and the Summer Starfruit patterned paper. What I used from my stash are the Soft Suede and Whisper White card stock, Soft Suede ink and the adhesive gems.

Everything Eleanor and more...

I'm so excited that I got a box of fun new products from Stampin' Up! on Monday. I've been dying to dig in and try them out and finally got a few minutes today. When I ordered I was so into the new stamps and tools that I completely forgot to order some new patterned papers so I'm using some beautiful, but retired paper here. What's new on this card? The new Finishing Touches edgelit dies, Everything Eleanor stamp set, Itty Bitty Banners and the flower is stamped in a new color called Primrose Petals. I can't help but think of The Hunger Games when I hear that name. I hear Effie Trinket calling her name at the Reaping in that Capitol voice "Primrose Everdeen!"...sorry, but I can't get past that with this color name.
