Stampin’ Up!’s big Closeout Sale features so many great products – if you haven’t already checked it out, please take a look! I’ve pulled two amazing products from the Closeout Sale to create today’s project – the Merry Tags Framelits Dies and the Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. What fun! These come together to make a sweet card that I shared with my local Stamp Club last week. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Merriest Wishes Bundle. I adore this Merriest Wishes bundle – the Framelits and the stamp set are really wonderful – and both are on sale while supplies last. This is the second time in a couple of weeks I’ve used this Christmas Tree ornament for a project – and I used it the same with but with different colors in the last project – click here to see the write-up for that card. I layered the ornament on today’s card with different colors and an additional circle around it (cropped with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies). I also added a sweet bow of Emerald Envy Solid Baker’s Twine. If you haven’t already picked up this bundle, take another look – the discount makes it much more appealing, too. Here’s a look at the bundle (10% off when purchased together) – BUT the items are on individually on sale. Buy them separately, and you can save almost 35%. WOO HOO!
- Fancy Frost Specialty. This is the second time I’ve featured the Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper on my blog – I have used it and love it. This paper is a vibrant white – it’s really, really white – to the point that it makes Whisper White look gray. There’s a fix for that, though. You can either pair the gorgeously textured paper with a solid color (perhaps a solid panel of paper with white embossing) or enhance the Fancy Frost paper to reduce the white glow. 🙂 I brushed this paper with a soft coat of Mint Macaron that pulled out the boughs on the paper and changed the tint of the page so that it doesn’t conflict with the panel of Whisper White. This is such a fun pack of paper – it, too, is on sale!
- Color Combination. What’s the unexpected color on this card that really pulls everything together to make it work? If you said “Brian, you handsome devil, Crushed Curry looks great with these greens!” then you are right! My card was all green and white at one point, but I thought a touch of Crushed Curry would add a special touch. If you like these colors, too, feel free to save this:
Papers: Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, Mint Macaron, Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry, Whisper White Inks: Mint Macaron Accessories: Merry Tags Framelits Dies, Emerald Envy Solid Baker’s Twine, Layering Circles Framelits Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals
