CHEERS!

CHEERS TO YOU is a fun little stamp set from SUP!. However, if it seems familiar to you that is because you might have seen it somewhere online in the vast blogger world. Apparently, SUP! sold this through their French or Spanish market awhile back (probably the French, since they say 'Cheers' like we say 'Have a good day' or 'See ya later'). AND with that being said, it does NOT come die-cut and ready to mount on the wood blocks, just so you know. For me, that is no big deal. I just assume mount my own stamps that I have trimmed as slim as possible to avoid those unsightly rubber-edge marks that they sometimes leave when you don't trim close-enough to the raised image.

I have three blues on this card, Bashful Blue, Pacific Point (my new favorite blue, if you can't tell) and Baja Breeze (my second favorite). I used my Spellbinders Nestibilities to make the scalloped squares. And the corner punch I got YEARS ago from Creative Memories. I never used it because I thought it made the corner look like a nipple! HA HA HA! BUT, I am glad I did save it and not get rid of it because it is perfect for softening the edges of this card, without just simply rounding the corners.

The two sided ribbon is from Hobby Lobby or Michael's and the rhinestones are cheapies from WallyWorld. I pop-dotted the top layer of the sentiment to allow the ribbon to slide underneath to be tied in a knot. I inked the cards outside edge in Pacific Point to give it some definition.



NOW, WHO has an anniversary coming up?

How cute are these past couple of SU sets you've been using?!!? I guess we know who's NOW REALLY needing some SU stamps :0)
I also adored your post with the SU cupcake set **AMAZING DETAIL** ~ I immediately noticed the detail of the cherries; how could you even question that?! Heheheee Now you just have to let me know, the exact name it.
