Happy Blog Hop Day! It's Monday afternoon over here in Edmonton, Canada, where I am .. and it's the "May Long" weekend. Whoot! Cold and rainy and PERFECT crafting weather. HOW happy am I that my ALL NEW craft toys from the upcoming 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! catalogue arrived Friday afternoon??? No need to guess what I'LL be doing for the rest of the day!
Before I get to that, though, us "blog-hoppers" have some CURRENT product projects we'd like to share!
I love how it turned out! I started with some inspiration from a Stampin' Up! photo I loved ...
It uses the "Tasteful Textures" bundle for my project - Tasteful Textures stamp set and Tasteful Backgrounds dies. I switched mine up to also incorporate our Perennial Essence Designer Paper.
I carried the stitched shapes throughout my elements for continuity - the rectangle DSP, the circle and the sentiment rectangle. I wanted the DSP layer to be 3 1/2" x 4" .... but my Stitched Rectangle die was 3 1/2" x 5". How did I get a smaller rectangle? I simply ran it through my die cutting machine a second time, cutting off the extra inch ... like so:
Ta-Da! I had my 3 1/2" x 4" layer piece.
The rest came together quickly. I cut out my Stitched Circle piece out of Whisper White and then ran it through my machine again with the flourish die in the middle for my accent piece.
The flourish, sentiment AND DSP layer are all popped up on dimensionals. I LOVE texture and dimension on my projects!
I used Granny Apple Green for the 1" x 5" strip, the sentiment and the Glitter Enamel Dots. The Granny Apple Green Card stock is the only supply on my card that is NOT retiring on June 2nd! Everything else is going :(.
The Tasteful Textures bundle is one of my favourites from this catalogue. I'm going to miss it! It's one of those bundles you don't really notice but it's SO versatile! The dies are actually on SALE right now so you can get the set and framelits for just $63.75 CDN (plus s/h/gst). Need a little extra incentive to order them before they're gone? Anyone who places on order through my online store for ANY of the items used on my project will receive the pre-cut elements and supplies to recreate it yourself (barring stamped elements). Orders under $200 that use Hostess Code 466T2N37 at the checkout will receive and extra treat in with their package! Click here to go to my store ... or email/message me with your order.
