Woo hoo! I’m honored to be featured as Guest Stamper on Mary Fish’s Stampin Pretty blog today, and I’m happy to share some wonderful sneak peek items that will available in the 2015 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration brochure (both available starting January 6).
It’s a big day at Stamp with Brian, and I just might celebrate with cake. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Life’s an Adventure. I’ve always been in love with the colors and patterns in Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Papers. With Adventure Abounds, Stampin’ Up! is offering us a mixture of great photography on one side and beautiful patterns on the other. While the patterns and pictures are primarily masculine, there’s a lot of room for soft and beautiful projects. Check these out:
- From Chalkboard to Graffiti. I just love this Big Day stamp set – one of the Sale-a-Bration items you can earn when you spend $50 between January 6 and March 31. Who doesn’t love free stuff?! And who doesn’t love cake?! The set has a chalkboard feel to it, but I switched it up a bit. I used White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to apply this sentiment on this brick paper (from Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack). Here’s a sneak peek at this wonderful Sale-a-Bration offering:
- Achieving Perfect Layering. There are five layers of paper on this clean-and-simple card. While the top layer of Adventure Bound is the focal point of this card, the Cajun Craze patterned paper below serves to support the brick pattern on this paper. The thin, crisp white frames around each of the layers accent the White Stampin’ Emboss Powder perfectly. If you missed my video about creating “wow” borders and frames on card, you can check it out here.
Stamp Sets: Big Day Papers: Cajun Craze, Whisper White, Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack Accessories: White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Stampin’ Dimensionals
The addition of a lined envelope with the Envelope Liner dies completes the entire look – I added the same paper that was used for the outside border of this card.
