Hey everyone! How’s your Wednesday going? As usual it’s been pretty busy around here! I wanted to take a moment between creating my Fabulous Friday post and getting swap cards done and in the mail to share a peek at one of the new stamp sets from the 2018/2019 Annual Catalog along with some of that gorgeous Garden Impressions DSP. I love the bright and cheery feel that the paper gives you and thought it went perfectly with this stamp set. Here are the measurements of my card:
- Card base in Pacific Point cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Mango Melody cardstock cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″
- Basic Black cardstock cut at 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ (2 of these)
- Whisper White cut at 3″ x 3″
- Garden Impressions DSP cut at 3″ x 3″
I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things about this new catalog is the color revamp that brought out so many beautiful colors. Mango Melody is fast becoming a favorite. It is just such a happy color! After I adhered that to the card base, I stamped the flower image in Mango Melody on the Whisper White square, then stamped the sentiment over it with Memento Black ink. I really like two-step stamping for sentiments, it just makes it not only pop, but makes it more a one-of-a-kind type of card. I added the butterfly in Black Memento too. I then adhered it to the black square, the DSP to the other black square and then both to the card front at different angles. I tied a double bow in Basic Black Baker’s Twine, added it with a Mini Glue Dot, sprinkled on some rhinestones and called it done. I’m really becoming a fan of quick and easy!
