I've finally managed to play with a new stamp set.  Mind you, this is one of the sets I pre-ordered prior to the new Catalogue coming out!  I loved this set from the moment I saw it, but have had a bit of a hard time creating with it.

Base Card - Island Indigo - 7 1/4" x 5 7/8" or 18.5cm x 15cm - scored & folded at 3" or 7.5cm
Front -
Layer 1 - Lucky Limeade - 5 3/4" x 2 7/8" or 14.5cm x 7.5cm
Layer 2 - Whisper White - 5 5/8" x 2 3/4" or 14cm x 7cm
Inside LHS -

Inside - RHS...

Layer 1 - Pool Party - 5 3/4" x 2 7/8" or 14.5cm x7.5cm
Layer 2 - Whisper White - 5 5/8" x 2 3/4" or 14cm x 7cm
Inside RHS -
Layer 1 - Lucky Limeade - 5 3/4" x 4 1/8" or 14.5cm x 10.5cm
Layer 2 - Whisper White - 5 5/8" x 4" or 14cm x 10cm

Inside LHS -
In stamped my image in the RHS corner using Lucky Limeade Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock, adhered to Pool Party & then to Base Card - Island Indigo.  I applied a Basic Rhinestone to centre of image.

Inside RHS -
I randomly stamped images onto Whisper White using Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo & Pool Party Inks, run it through the Bigshot using Embossing Folder - Square Lattice, adhered to Lucky Limeade Cardstock & then to Base Card - Island Indigo.  I again applied Basic Rhinestones to some of the images.

Front -
I repeated the above step for the front of the card, including the embossing.  I stamped my greeting twice onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock with Lucky Limeade & Island Indigo Inks.  I adhered the Lucky Limeade greeting to a piece of Pool Party Cardstock with SU Dimensionals.  This piece had been punched using my 2 1/2" Scallop Circle Punch.  I punched the centre out of the Island Indigio greeting with my 1" Circle Punch & adhered this to the centre of the Lucky Limeade greeting with SU Dimensionals.

I again randomly applied Basic Rhinestones to the stamped images & put dots around the scallop circle with my White Gel Pen.

Don;t you just love the names SU call their Cardstock & Inks, especially the In Colours - they always have such catchy names.
