I can feel the excitement building, one day to go before orders can be placed from the new Stampin’Up Catalog.
I know you have your catalogs and are eager to get creating with some of the exciting products on display. Over at Vickie’s blog she has created some lovely cards with the new colors and stamps. Pop over and see after you have looked at my offering with the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set and two of the 2015/16 colors.
What a great way to help Ronald McDonald House Charities. On the news the other night they showed the new fantastic building going up next to the children’s hospital in Brisbane that is in need of more funding so get behind them with this stamp set.
I have chosen to limit myself to two colors, Tip Top Taupe and Cucumber Crush. What about the white you say, well according to my son when he was 6, years ago, in his “I’m right”, voice which he often was, it’s a shade called Whisper White. The Internet will agree and disagree but I like to remember him when I’m using black or white.
It is a simple layout with the background paper from Irresistibly Yours DSP sponged in the Tip Top Taupe Ink. One scalloped 8cm circle in Cucumber Crush and one 7cm in Whisper White, which were popped up with dimensionals provided the resting place for the tree.
This tree, after stamping from the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set was punched with the Tree Builder Punch.
Sentiment was from the Simply Wonderful Stamp Set and stamped on Whisper White Card Stock then cut with the Chalk Talk Framelits with the Big Shot. The under mount, in Tip Top Taupe was created with the same framelit cut half way, then the framelit reversed, put through the Big Shot again, cut half way to create the other end.
A pretty bow with Organza Ribbon, topped with the little bird from the Tree Builder Punch, attached with sticky dots helped fill the card.
I Stamped the sentiment and the Tree from the Sprinkles of Life Stamp set inside and the card was complete.
Till next time Happy Crafting.
PS: In case you were were wondering, the scallop was die cut using KaiserCraft Scallop Nesting Die
