Howdy all!! Had Club yesterday so I actually have something to share!! As usual, I'm always hoping to get back into more of a stamping mode but it probably isn't likely for a while. Too much to do outside and at school with it being the end of the year.
Here is the first card from Club, using the Summer Smooches DSP and Bright Blossoms set from the April Sneak Peak.
I had told the girls last month that I would play with the Designer Frames folders for this month. I didn't of course, but I was able to work them into a card fairly easily! I looked at the rectangle one and knew the flowers from Bright Blossoms would be perfect to put in the frame. I picked up the Summer Smooch paper and flipped through for a pattern I liked for the background. Some are quite bright, a couple were too busy (for this), but this Tangerine Tango print seemed perfect.
The card base is Basic Gray with a Tangerine accent layer behind the DSP background. At the bottom of the DSP we stamped a saying from Curly Cute in Basic Gray. This one is Thinking of You. Happy Birthday, Thank You and Congratulations were other options that would work! The ribbon is a Vanilla Satin strip that we attached a Basic Gray Glimmer Brad to. To do that, just open the back of the Brad (using the Paper Piercer) and tuck the ribbon in. Close the brad, trimming the ends if necessary with Craft & Rubber Scissor. The frame was embossed on a piece of Tangerine Tango card stock. Hint: attach the card stock to the folder before you run it through to prevent moving! This might not be necessary on larger pieces, but I found it sure was when the card stock was similar in size to the frame! The frame was layered onto an accent layer of Basic Gray. In the center is a smaller piece of Very Vanilla, cut just to fit inside the frame. On that we inked the vase with Basic Gray and stems with Old Olive. The image has circles for flowers at the top, which we inked just for placement. Over the circles we attached small Tangerine flowers punched with the round flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. On the flowers we added a medium rhinestone for sparkle!
Thanks for stopping by today!! Today is the last day to get this sneak peak set or paper until the new catalog goes live June 1. Today is also the last day to order from the Occasions Mini catalog unless items carry over.
