My little piece of Scrapmaster's Paradise

Ever since I ordered some yummy Stampin' UP! paper from SP & Company and then won-can-you-believe-it their Ornamental Tree stamp set, I've been sorta stalking our mailman. The dogs start barking the moment he parks on the corner and sometimes I stand at the door waiting for him in a Mayberry kind of way. He got a giant wave and thank-you when I got my package! What he doesn't know is that Mom's sending me another 10-lb box of paper... He's definitely getting a complicated card this holiday!
Within an hour of receiving my new stamps, I'd tried heat embossing, paper decorating, and color-on stamping. So much fun! I knew from the samples online that they are beautiful and delicate images, and I'm really happy with how well they stamp on different materials. Four challenge cards later, I decided I'd better stop and blog. This post was going to be more detailed, but I really need to get back to stamping...
