All Dressed up For You

Guess what?  Today is a really big day!  It’s the launch of the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog.  Click on the link located on the right side of my blog to view.  The catalog widget will appear at midnight CST.

I have also included a card featuring the All Dressed up Bundle.  See page 32 of the Spring Catalog.  This bundle is a must-have.  I used many items from the new catalog.  Do you see those luscious huge rhinestones?  They’re new!  A new 8mm rhinestone is now available (page 8).  Another new item is the paper doily (page 5).  The dress and stand is die cut using the Dress Up Framelits.  So cute!!   In case you’re wondering about the layout, it’s based on the sketch for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch.

Another Happy Birthday Card

Here it is another week and another Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.  Wow!  Where does the week go!?  For this week the challenge is paper pleating.  There are so many great ways to fold paper and use it to embellish any project.  For inspiration I CASED a card from the new Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog.  I used Summer Starfruit cardstock with Pool Party.  I love this combo!  Summer Starfruit is fast becoming one of my favs.  I stamped my cake image on watercolor paper and used a blender pen and pads to color the banners on the cake.  I embellished the cake with butterflies die cut from the Embosslit Beautiful Wings.  To add sparkle to them I added Dazzling Details to the wings.  The DSP is from Patio Party and the sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners.  The banner is die cut with the coordinating Bitty Banners Framelits.  For a soft layer in the color Pool Party I die cut a doily using the Paper Doily Sizzlit.  Instead of ribbon I cut a strip of Summer Starfruit and used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score my paper to make it easier to pleat.  If you haven’t used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool you need to!  It’s so easy to use and in my opinion the best scoring tool on the market.

Happy Birthday Patio Party Bird Card

Hello!  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a challenge to create a project with a bird/peacock.  Great challenge!  My mind just soared with so many ideas!  I’m so excited to share this card because it contains many of the new products found in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.  So many beautiful stamp sets and products!  I’m going broke if I order everything on my wish list.  The beautiful DSP paper, Patio Party,  features the new In-Colors and I also used card stock from this same collection.  My card also features a new sentiment from the Bitty Banners set that I die cut using the new Bitty Banners Framelits.  No more trying to cut my own banners by hand.  LOVE IT!!  Another new product is the 1/4″ stitched grosgrain ribbon.  This ribbon comes in many colors and the stitching adds so much.

The flower stamped images are from the set Mixed Bunch and die cut with the Blossom punch.  The bird is die cut using the Bird Builder punch.  This punch is a must have because it die cuts a wing, bird and stem with leaves.  So versatile!  The Patio Party DSP layer is the Top Note shape cut narrow.  Cool shape!
