07.12.19…..Welcome to Friday afternoon, my stampin’ friends! Once again, this week has seemed to just fly by! I have to say that I love the title of this blog post, because “simply wonderful” is one of the best ways to describe the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog. The “wonderfulness” of the new catalog is beyond…!
Those of you that follow my blog know that I love to add dimension and texture, using a mix embossing folders, DSP, accessories, and more. That being said, today’s card is an fun blend of many of those products.
I started with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and embossed it with the Lace 3D Embossing Folder. To add a wash of color, I used Seaside Spray, along with my Aqua Painter. I then used my Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker to add some speckling. (For create the speckling, I used the thick end of the marker and “flicked” it against the marker cap.) After I layered it with a piece of Woven Threads Designer Series Paper, I adhered the entire panel to a Sahara Sand Cardstock base, using a few Stampin’ Dimensionals. For some extra layering, I added another strip of Woven Threads Designer Series Paper, and used one of the Stitched Be Mine Dies to add a tiny decorative border along the top edge. Tucked underneath is a small strip of Sahara Sand Cardstock (torn along the bottom edge).
For a bit of sparkle, I used one of the Stitched Be Mine Dies (along with Sparkle Glimmer Paper) to die cut the three little hearts. After I punched two tiny holes in each heart, I added a bit of Linen Thread and popped them up with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment, from the Bloom & Grow Bundle, was heat-embossed on Whisper White Cardstock, using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my Versamark Pad. After cut out the sentiment, I popped it up with a few more Stampin’ Dimensionals, and tucked a bit of Rose Metallic Thread underneath. For that last bit of bling, I sprinkled on several of the Woven Threads Sequins.
The NEW 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog is chockful of so many wonderful products! Okay, let’s be honest…..it is absolutely overflowing with some of the most amazing products ever! Watch the video above and get your creative juices flowing!
