LIM with Acetate

As you might know I love Stampin'Up "Stuff" and I have quite a lot of their products but I don't use them as much as I should, but since starting to join in the new "Less is More Challenge" I have been using my SU stash a bit more as I'm getting inspired by Mandi, Chrissie and the other challenge LIM entrants.
So when my lovely friend Victoria sent me the new Mini catalogue I couldn't help myself !!!! lol
My order just arrived this afternoon (and yes I spoilt myself !! ) some of which you can see in the photo above but there was so much I couldn't get it all in so see my list below, OMG they now do dies and embossing folders (by Sizzix but designs exclusive to Stampin'up) and embosslits too.
The new Seam Binding is to die for, not ........to mention the punches with matching stamps, and the new designer papers .....Ooooooh I could go on and on I'm in heaven!! ha ha
If you are not familiar with Stamp'in Up or you would like to see whats new pop over to Victoria's blog coz there is plenty to see over there, including the on-line catalogue, tutorials, and I always look forward the daily make from Victoria too.

Here's my card I made for this weeks Less is More Challenge, the theme is Acetate, not the easiest of cards to photograph, it should sit on one of my die cut stands but it was impossible to get a good picture without a reflection of my ugly mug and my camera in it, so the only way was to lay it flat ....you'll have to imagine its sat on the stand.
I used 2 of my own design large dies to cut the 6" scalloped back and the 5.5" Papermania acetate overlay circle.
The bird on a branch punch, Sentiment stamp and fancy square punch are all from SU, I hope its ok for your challenge Chrissie & Mandi and I welcome your advice , thanks for another great challenge girls, you pushed me out of my box this week but I was determined to have ago and not miss a week !!! lol
I look forward to finding out what you challenge us with next week . Hugs  xx

I'm loving your SU stash.


Sue said...

Hi ya hun
lol what ya like was that every thing from the book? just cause you got room to put it all in! lol.
Fabulous card hun, great design, lovely use of the acetate, sue,x

Erika said...

Looks like you have an SU stash similar to mine, LOL. Great card the SU punch goes great with the bird stamp, happy crafting, Erika.

Victoria said...

gorgeous card Susie

I think I need to come and visit you and help myself to some of your lovely stash lol!

Thanks for being such a fab customer!


Chrissie said...

Have you taken out a second mortgage for all that SU stuff? ... you must have spent a fortune, if only I could afford all that!
Your acetate card looks cute... is it mounted on a square card or is it the scalloped shape?
How did you attach your acetate?
Neat stamping Susie!
"Less is More"

Susie Sugar said...

LOL lucky I don't have a mortgage Chrissie
I tell you what when I've moved would you like to come over and play for the afternoon (what I really mean is teach me to use all that stuff !! he he )
The card goes on a stand I did say in my post but I couldn't get a good photo coz of the acetate (heres one same style I made without acetate it's my own design I sell them in my shop http://sassydesignsbysusie.blogspot.com/2010/06/its-all-white-now.html )
The acetate is only attached in one spot behind the punched bird right in the middle with a little spot of strong clear drying glue from WoC.
And Lastly I did'nt stamp the birds they are printed on the Papermania acetate.
Glad you like it
Hugs Susie xx

Now when I first looked at your list I thought it was a "wish list" not an actual shopping list - I am seriously jealous but as the saying goes "you can't take it with you"
