Stampin' Up! Suite Sentiments, May Flowers, Detailed Dragonfly, Sending Love, Cupcakes Carousels - SAB Glimmer Paper

We got a little bit of rain overnight and into this morning which just made our road even worse.  Our Consumers Energy Meter Reader almost got stuck; but, fortunately, he made it out and on his way!  Phew!  You should have seen the mud on his card.  We are supposed to have high's well into the 50's again today.  Nice!

My share for today are two cards that I designed using SU's Suite Sentiments Stamp Set, May Flowers Framelits and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlets Dies, Sending Love and Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishments and Stampin' Up's new Sale-a-Bration Glimmer Papers.

Stampin' Up added two new Stamp Sets, Reverse Words & Make a Medallion, and a 6" x 6" Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack in Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum colors.  Being a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, I was able to order the new items early so my cards today are made with the new Glimmer Papers.

Let's take a look:

Wowzers, is that some Glimmer Paper or What!!!  I'm in LOVE!!!  =)

My Card Base for the first card is Night of Navy and Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock for my second card.  Both were cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored and folded at 4-1/4".

My Card Front Panels are Sweet Sugarplum and Night of Navy Cardstock cut at 4" x 5-1/4".

I trimmed out a piece of Night of Navy and Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock at 1" x 4".

I adhered a piece of SU's Mint Macaron 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon around each 1" x 4" piece and then to my Card Front Panels with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I adhered my Card Front Panels to my Card Bases with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Using SU's Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies, I die cut two Dragonflies from SU's new Bermuda Bay, one from Mint Macraron and one from Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Papers.  (The 2 Bermuda Bay dragonflies are on the outside of my cards and the other 2 are on the inside of my cards which I'll show later on in this post.)

I took a couple scraps of Bermuda Bay Cardstock and trimmed out the Wings of the Dragonflies and adhered them to the Back of each Bermuda Bay Dragonfly with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using SU's May Flowers Framelits Dies, I die cut my Flowers and Leaves from Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Papers and Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock.

I assembled all my Flowers and Leaves using Mono Multi Purpose Glue and then adhered the entire piece to my Card Front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  (I used my Petal Roller Tool to gently cup some of the Flower Petals and Leaves to give them more dimension.)

I adhered the two Wooden Flower Elements as shown in the picture above from SU's Sending Love Embellishments to the center of each Flower with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

For the inside of my Cards:
Using SU's Suite Sentiments Stamp Set, I stamped my Sentiment on one of the tags from SU's Cupcakes & Carousels Tags in Night of Navy Ink.  I then adhered the Tag and one of the Dragonflies with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I am so LOVIN' the new Glimmer Papers.

I randomly adhered 3 of the Gold Sequins from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit to the front of my Cards with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I hope you get the chance to play with some of the new Glimmer Papers!  They are even more awesome in person and my pictures cannot capture the real life beauty of this papers.

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges, using them for their own card classes and (using them on their blogs as their own creations) - Please give credit where credit is due.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
