X-Treme Passages 4 Card Set... new product alert!

So in the Summer Idea Book (which goes live on May 1st) there are 4 new paper packs.  Passages happens to be my least fave of the new 4 (there's always a least fave, right?).  So what better way to change my own mind than to play with it?  That's exactly what I did today.  I'm liking it so much more now...  {{grin}}

For the pop of green, I used a B&T from another new pack called Splendor.  Always gotta mix it up!

I also inked up a new stamp set called X-Treme... love it!  I know SU has some similar sets, and honestly I had been purchasing some of them because CTMH was lacking anything similar... until NOW.  I LOVE this set, it's a must-have for the young men in our lives (maybe even the ones that are a little older, too...  lol).

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Bamboo CS; Passages B&T, Splendor B&T
Stamps:  X-Treme, You Rock, Lifetime, Candlelight, Say It In Style
Inks:  Versamark, Black, Cocoa
Embellishments:  Bamboo brads, Antique Copper brads and bigger brads, Bamboo arrow photo clip
Other:  Clear detail embossing powder
Punches:  Binder edge (EK), Star and Large Star (SU)
Tools:  Paper piercer, Craft heater
