New stamps....new toys (I mean new inspiration!!!)

Okay, so I admit! I am officially an addict. I am addicted to stamping and I must say that I have learned SO MUCH MORE about stamping since becoming a Stampin' Up demonstrator that it is really unbelievable! I always enjoyed scrapping and papercrafting before, but now I have so many tools that help me as a demonstrator - a terrific website, a delightfully inspiring magazine that leaves me waiting for more each month, and terrific demos that I learn from each day through the web! I didn't even make this post a plug for becoming a demonstrator...it just happened!
Anyway, I got in a whole new set of stamp sets yesterday and just had to sit down and create more with some of my sets! I was so proud of myself when I got finished. The blue is a little fluorescent in the picture, but it really looks nice in person. I liked the brown/turquoise color combo at http://www.thepinkelephantchallenge.blogspot.com/ and have really enjoyed the Stamps, Ink, and Paper challenge on http://www.soshelli.com/ website. So that is where this card set came from.
All right...all of the cards stick with this basic recipe:
Stamps: Wings of Friendship (and one card uses the for you from Fresh Cuts)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise
Paper: Kraft, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Flamingo DS
