FS76: Susiestampsalot

This week's Featured Stamper is Susiestampalot. She had a nice clean style which everyone will surely fall in love with! Her gallery has a ton of cards to oogle over! I used her Flutterby Just Because card as my case card.
I used the pinks and greens, but used the new SU! colors. I used the Bella Rose designer paper. I stuck with a butterfly, but used the new Dreams Du Jour, a SU! set which will be available in the next catalog. I also used some great MayArts ribbon (which matches the new Pink Pirouette absolutely perfectly!) Instead of the main image being on a scalloped square, I used a circle for the main image. Lots of dimensionals. My opinion on the new Stampin' Up! colors - TWO THUMBS UP! (I was skeptical seeing the swatches online).
Details: white base for the card, then a layer of Pink Pirouette. A layer of the Bella Rose designer paper (CAN YOU BELIEVE I CUT IT???) and a layer of the Kiwi cardstock. SU! scalloped circle punch layer (pink pirouette) with pierces in each scallop, Kiwi circle with the butterfly stamped on it in black. Butterfly also stamped a second time (on white) and trimmed, then colored with copics. Butterfly was then covered with sakura stardust and placed on the kiwi layer with monoadhesive. I placed the kiwi circle AND the scalloped circle on dimensionals. Finally, I used three baubles (green) on the side to replace the brads which Susie had used on her card.

stamps: Dreams Du Jour
paper: Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Bella Rose DP, WW
ink: black, copics
misc: ribbon (mayarts/starlitstudio), dimensionals, punches (circle, scalloped circle - both SU!), sakura stardust, baubles

Beautiful gallery to peruse - great choice for today! Your card is wonderful!
I am glad to hear your opinion of the new colors -- I haven't ordered any yet, as the swatches aren't doing it for me. So I think I will go ahead with the bundle and see what I think (with the Bella paper, of course!).
