New mini starts soon!

There are so many fabulous products in the new mini that starts on January 4th.  Of course I already pre-ordered most of the stuff, just need to get back into the daily creating mode.  I was able to make a couple of cards (late challenge cards) with one of the new sets called Send Me Soaring.  A cute kite set--I really didn't think I wanted it but had some hostess benefits left and decided to give it a try.  Funny that it is the first set I used out of all the new stuff.  Here are the two cards...

Isn't fun how different they both look!  The first one is also using a new embossing folder, new designer paper and a new edgelit die.  One the second card I used the kites to create the patterned paper for the strips and then again to make the focal flower. 

Supplies:  Card 1,
Stamps: Send Me Soaring,
Paper: Lucky Limade, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Whisper White and a new designer paper that will be available for free during Salebration!,
Ink: Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Basic Black
Other: circle punch, oval punch, textured Impressions Embossing Folders, Edgelits die, markers

Supplies Card 2
Stamps: Send Me Soaring, thinking of you not sure what set, sorry

Hope you are enjoying your New Year's celebrations!  Here's to 2012! May it be a great year for all of us!
