June VIP Blog Hop-Surf's Up!!

 Hey everyone, and welcome to June's VIP Product Tour!! This month's collection is SUPER fun, and I am IN LOVE with the VIP sentiments set!!!

If you aren't familiar with the VIP Package it is a LIMITED QUANTITY product (NOT a one-day product - it will be available until it sells out), that allows you the opportunity to purchase new, unreleased sets TWO weeks early. This month's package is: 

Pure Innocence Surf Chick stamp set
Pure Innocence Surfer Dude stamp set
Surf's Up Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set - will never be offered for sale or be available again $9 value, FREE)
Jumbo Squiggle Border Die-namics
Sentiment Strips Die-namics

For my cards tonight, I used both the SUPER cute Surfer PI's in this kit, Surfer Girl and Surfer Dude!!

For my Surfer Chick, I colored her with my Copics, and paper pieced her board with some Hello Summer paper from Echo Park. My card stock is Sno Cone using the Wave Die-namics, Pink Pirouette(SU), Sour Apple, and Orange Fizz. I used the new Sentiment Strips Die-namics which is in the kit with the VIP mini set included in the kit. For my ribbon, I used the Orange Fizz Grosgrain, brads are from Michael's, and my spiral clip is from Creative Express.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies and another sentiment from the mini set included with the kit!

For my Surfer Dude, I colored him with Copics, and used the Echo Park Boy's Life paper. My background uses the EP paper, and the new Jumbo Squiggle Border Die-namics from the kit as well! I also used a new Sentiment Strips Die-namics with my sentiment from the exclusive to this kit mini set.. My card stock is Sour Apple, Orange Fizz, and Night of Navy(SU). For my embellishments, I used the Orange Fizz ribbon again, Michael's brads, and Creative Express spiral clips.

For the inside, I used the same supplies, and a sentiment from the Surfer Chick set.

Here are the Die-namics I have used: 

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to check out Kim's Blog for a full list of designers participating in today's post!!

TSG161 Winged Things

You know when you start making a card...and you see it in your head...then you put it on paper and it isn't ANYTHING like what you expected it to be? Well, that happens to me very rarely, but tonight, this card took on a life of it's own. Maybe it's all the stuff going on in my "real life", but wow...how out of my element was THIS? Only two layers on the base? And would you LOOK at all that cutting? What in the world....LOL!!

My card is for this week's There She Goes challenge, to make a card using "Winged Things". It is There She Goes Again week, and this week we are featuring three older sets, all with wings....including the set I have used today(Bee Happy), Spread Your Wings, and Love Birds. All gorgeous sets, and PERFECT for making your creations SOAR!!

So, not much to tell about my card, so I will list the supplies!! I used the Bee Happy set, paired with some Cosmo Cricket Baby Jane paper, Black Licorice(MFT), Banana Split(Bazzill), and X-Press It Blending Card card stock. I stamped all my images in Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored them with my Copics. I cut out three of the flowers, and all of the bees and popped them up. My brads are from Michael's, my spiral clip from Creative Express, and my Black Twill ribbon, and Lemondrop Twine are all from the Ribbon Carousel.

Speaking of the Ribbon Carousel, this card also works PERFECTLY for this week's challenge, Heavy Metal!! What card do I make that ISN'T covered with brads, right? LOL!!

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to check out both challenges, and I will see you back tomorrow night with this month's VIP hop from My Favorite Things!!!
