Our challenge this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations is to “Use Something from the NEW Idea Book & Catalogue“. What a great challenge – it could be from as small as a Button, Embossing Powder through to Embossing Folder & Stamps. The possibilites are endless!
For the life of me, my mine went a complete blank & couldn’t get my head around all the stamps, so I opted to use something from the new Holiday Catalogue, although I have used one of the new In Colours AND Ink.
Base Card – Lucky Limeade – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ 0r 22cm x 15cm – Scored in middle & folded in half
:Layer 1 – Very Vanilla – 3 7/8″ x 5 3/8″ or 10cm x 13.5cm
Layer 2 – Primrose Petals – 2″ x 5 1/8″ or 5cm x 13cm
Layer 3 – DSP – 1 7/8″ x 5″ or 4.5cm x 12.5cm
Layer 4 – Primose Petals – 2″ x 4 1/2″ or 4.5cm x 11.5cm
Stamp Set – Perfect Punches
Ink – Primrose Petals, Early Expresso
Cardstock – Primrose Petals, Very Vanilla, Lucky Limeade
DSP – Candlelight Christmas Speciality Series Paper
Punches – Scallop Circle, 1 1/4″ Circle
Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Simply Scoring Tool, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Big Shot, Tombow Multipurpose Glue
I run the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock through the Bigshot using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder & adhered to the Base Card – Lucky Limeade with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
I cut a piece of 12″ x 1 1/4″ strip of DSP, scored at 1/4″ intervals with my Simply Scoring Tool, folded concentina style & adhered to the Base Card with Sticky Strip.
For my sentiment, I stamped the image twice onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock – once in Early Expresso & the other in Primrose Petals. The stamped image in Early Expresso Ink was punched using the Scallop Circle Punch while the Primrose Petal image was punched with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. I adhered the smaller circle to the top of the Early Expresso piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals prior to adhering to the Rosette with Sticky Strip.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
