Upsy Daisy

OMG, I am just loving Upsy daisy! I got my order yesterday with that and two of the new In Colors. Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red are just gorgeous! I'm not quite as sad about Pomegranate being gone now, but I am still kicking myself for not ordering an extra pack paper before it sold out though. Can you see a pattern here rolleyes. Anyway, here are two cards I made yesterday. The flower image on both cards were stamped in a light color, then just a little off with a darker color. I don't have any of the new DSP yet, so I sort of made my own using white embossing powder and the polka dots from Polka Dots & Paisley. It does kinda look like DP I think biggrin. I *finally* remembered to order the embossing buddy. Seriously, I've been meaning to order it for at least a year, but it's one of those things that seems so insignificant when your flipping through the catty and seeing so many gorgeous stamps. That thing really does make a difference though! No more stray EP spots.
