Wacky Wednesday 2-4-09

So I got a fun package from the UPS man today.  It was my order with some of the fun new products.  I got the new cutter bee circle cutter and some new stuff for the big shot.  Of course I just had to try it out.  My son actually gave me the perfect opportunity.  His Birthday is in the middle of summer when life is usually crazy so I told him we could have a 1/2 Birthday party instead.  We are planning for Friday night so I made him these cute cards to invite his friends.  His favorite color is blue so of course I had to use the in-color Pacific point.  Plus I had to try out my new toys.

bold-cupcake-diecut-card1I really loved putting the texture on the Bold cupcakes.  The frosting has the swirl plate and the cake has the polk-a-dot.  Then I used the directly to paper technique to get a little ink on them and really make them pop.  I loved how it turned out.  I really loved using the circle cutter.  It was so fast and easy.  I can’t wait to try it for more projects. 

I did learn that I need to cut out the items with the big shot and then run the texture on them otherwise the pressure of cutting it just smooths it back out again.  Anyway I had lots of fun and my son loved them so I hope you like it too.
