Today I'm combining retiring and new. The stamp set/ embossing/die set is brand new in the new AC going live June 1. And yes, I said embossing, that large image at the right bottom stamps, but also has a metal piece that embosses instead of cutting. There are of course several dies in the set as well. The bird is one as is the butterfly although I choose not to cut it this time. The small corner piece does cut if you want.
Outgoing is Pink Pirouette. For the first time in my 6 yrs with SU, I think I'm going to keep this color, or what I have left of it. Look how it pairs with Lovely Lipstick, a new incolor.
I finally, after trying out 3 other things, decided to emboss this in gold and use my Pink Pirouett Blendie to color in. I was lucky enough to score one of the Lovely Lipstick Blendies at On Stage as well so I used that to fill in some of the image. I then added a glossy, raised effect to the Lovely Lipstick portions of the flower and the top of the bird's wings. Hopefully you can see the shine. If you haven't figured it out yet, I used the Fine Tip Glue pen, yup, that is just the old accents stuff with the fine tip. It's actually easier to apply this way too.
So, right now here is the challenge, stop on over and play, there points you can aquire to buy things with.
The sentiment is from a retiring product I didn't get nearly enough time with. Flirty Flowers. The sentiments in it are just adorable and very usable.
