I really like the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week and thought that I would play along. I wasn’t going to buy the Christmas Cuties stamp set but thought that it would be a good one for my grandchildren to use to make cards for their friends. Anyway, you can’t have new product without trying it out and this sketch gave me the inspiration.
I started by attaching Marina Mist card to Whisper White card which was then embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder (I really love this folder!). The embossed card is attached to scored and folded Pool Party card. My next layer is daffodil delight which I attached using dimensionals. The cute little angel from the Christmas Cuties stamp set is stamped onto Whisper White card using the new Basic Black Archival ink and then coloured using a Blender Pen and the following inks – Pool Party, Marina Mist, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Pink Pirouette. I punched the image using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch before attaching to Pool Party card cut using a Circles Collection Framelits Die. The image is attached to the card front using dimensionals so that it would sit flat onto the Daffodil Delight card.
I decorated the inside by attaching a narrow strip of Daffodil Delight card behind one long edge of Marina Mist card before embossing using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. The embossed card is attached to Whisper White card stamped with Merry Christmas from the Sassy Salutations stamp set using Marina Mist ink.
Isn’t it cute? I might have to play with this stamp set a little more before letting my Grandchildren have their turn.
Now what is really exciting is that the 2015 Holiday Catalogue launches today! Yay! That’s right, you can now place your order for your “must haves” for the holiday season. Don’t have a catalogue – you can view it by clicking on the picture on the right hand side of this page. Don’t have a demonstrator, then contact me to get a copy of this wonderful catalogue.
Bye for now,
