"The way to know life is to love many things." The sentiment of this card describes perfectly my love for "many things" from Stampin' Up!'s Fall/Winter catalog. Including today's post, you'll get 5 sneak peeks in a row over the next 5 days, introducing you to the new stamps, colors and even the new "must have" Scalloped Border Punch–all available for customer order August 11 with the catalog release. So if you are the curious-type, stay tuned for my Sneak Peek Mini Marathon . . .
My "love" card showcases 4 of the 6 new In Colors: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango (the missing colors . . . . Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze will get their turn in subsequent posts). The Dream du Jour "love" stamp was inked in Basic Black, stamped and punched into 1 1/4" squares of these stunning new In Colors. Each is matted on 1 3/8" Squares of Basic Black card stock.
The four mounted squares were placed on layers of Whisper White, Tangerine Tango and Riding Hood Red. Next up was Kraft card stock which was a zowie backdrop for the powerful colors (and allowed me to slip this card into my "You've Got Male" category of masculine cards).
TIP: Using a Stamp-a-ma-jig, I was able to place the tr?s cool Van Gogh sentiment in just the right spot (even more precise than acrylics, in my opinion). Some black gingham ribbon pulls things together before everything was adhered to the 4.25 x 5.5 Basic Black card base.
Please drop me a comment and let me know what you think of the new releases!
