Here's another sneak peek using Stampin' Up!'s new Scallop Edge Punch to make rick rack "ribbon" and showing off Bella Rose Designer Paper. All sneak peek items will be available for on-line customer purchase beginning Aug. 11. The Fall/Winter on-line catalog will be posted once it's available on the 11th or you can purchase a Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalog through me for $9.95 (I cover the cost of priority shipping) by ordering your copy here.
On to today's card . . . . the "thank you" sentiment was inked in Chocolate Chip and stamped on Whisper White card stock. Stampin' Up!'s Small Oval Punch gave it a new figure and a Large Oval Punch created a perfect mat in Riding Hood Red. SHHHHH: Coming up in the Fall/Winter catty . . . . a Wide Oval Punch with coordinating stamp set.
The stamp below the ovals is from Frames with a Flourish. It's inked in Chocolate Chip ink and stamped on Kiwi Kiss card stock. I snipped it out with my Paper Snips and mounted it using Stampin' Dimensionals for a little 3-D jazz. TIP: Two pink brads (Soft Subtles) pull in a sweet touch of pink.
I discovered the rick rack ribbon idea on Splitcoast Stampers. TIP: Using Riding Hood Red Textured Card Stock, I punched one side using Stampin' Up!'s Scallop Edge Punch (click for details on how to use the punch), flipped it around (setting it slightly off from the first row to create the rick rack effect) and used the Scallop Edge Punch again on the opposite side. Voil?! It's layered on a horizontal banner of Pink Pirouette Textured card stock.
The card base (which you don't see) is Whisper White, 5.5 x 4.25. On top, I layered two patterns of Bella Rose Designer Paper, using the Scallop Edge Punch again to dress up the bottom of the rose pattern. The 5 Petal Punch snaps out three Kiwi Kiss textured flowers which get even prettier with Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette textured flowers in the center . . . whipped up using the Boho Blossom Punch.
I love the way the new In Colors can look soft in one setting (today's card) or incredibly bold in others (example here).
