Trying out my new set!!

Today I received in the mail a Stampin' Up! set from my friend Karen!! Isnt she the best? It is a set I have wanted but knew I would have a slim chance if any of earning it as it is a Level 2 Hostess set! It sure was a wonderful gift to receive - thank you so much Karen.

So I set to work and remembered a black, red and white card from a blog somewhere that had squares of flowers so I made up this one using the same design and colours. This way I was able to try each one of the four stamps in the set!

Card: Real Red, black and white
Ink: Real Red and Glorious Green markers
Stamps: Both Way Blossoms and Riveting

I also used that beautiful Cuttlebug Texture embossing folder and red and black gingham ribbon.

You are doing some great stuff with that cuttlebug embosser! I love the white background to show off that red and black. Great card!
