Something Old/Something New

May 19, 2017

This card today uses some of the beautiful but retiring Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper – something old, and the soon to be released Daisy Delight stamp set – something new.  This set contains a number of images but the gorgeous large flower has a matching punch.  So it is easy to create gorgeous flowers.

I attached a piece of the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper to the bottom of Whisper White card.  I used Cucumber Crush Thick Bakers Twine to wrap around the card just above the Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the greeting from the Beautiful You stamp set using Cucumber Crush ink (retiring in-colour).  I also stamped the leaves from the Daisy Delight stamp set onto the left hand side using Cucumber Crush ink.  The solid leaf is stamped once onto scrap paper first to give a lighter impression.  The outline is stamped over the top without stamping off so that you get the variation on the colour.  The Whisper White card is attached to scored and folded Cucumber Crush card.  I stamped the large daisy flower three times onto Watermelon Wonder card (retiring in-colour) using Watermelon Wonder ink and punched out the image using the matching Daisy Punch.  I attached the flowers together making sure to stagger the petals and attached it to the card front using a dimensional.  I added one of the new Silver Faceted Gems to the centre of the flower.  These are so pretty, I’m sure you are going to love them.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the leaves onto the bottom left hand corner and the top right hand corner of the Whisper White card.  I also added a strip of the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the stamped card.

I am loving the combination of old and new, but of course that is only until all the new is released.  It’s a hard time of the Stampin’ Up! year to be creating.  Sometimes everything you go to use is retired and then you start wishing that you already had some of the product from the new catalogue.

I will let you in on a little secret – I wasn’t going to stamp the leaves on the top right hand corner of the inside of the card, but I made a mark with my finger and decided that rather than start again, I would cover the spot with a few more leaves.  I like the way it looks and I am happy I didn’t have to start again.  I’m sure you know the feeling!

Hope you are stay safe during the current rain event in Australia.

Bye for now,
