This Clean and Simple sketch (FTL42) offers a pretty platform to show off a mix of greens and highlight the Little Leaves die cut stem (114511). TIP: For just $4.95, this sizzlits die gets a lot of mileage.
- I zipped Whisper White Textured Card Stock through my Big Shot with the Little Leaves stem.
- The stem was adhered to Kiwi Kiss card stock layered over Always Artichoke.
- TIP: Using a Stampin' Up! Always Artichoke Marker, I placed dashes around the stem for a faux stitched look.
- A Fashion District Rub-On supplies the sentiment. TIP: I added a powerful shot of Real Red color by layering the tiny heart over the sentiment with a Stampin' Dimensional. I used my Heart to Heart Punch (the smallest heart) and cut it down a bit to fit.
- A Photo Corner Punch was used to create the layered corner accent. TIP: I adhered the small on the large corner punch with tiny cut pieces of Stampin' Dimensionals for added impact.
- A strip of Whisper White is shaped with a Scallop Border Punch.
- Always Artichoke 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon pulls the look together and covers the edge of the scallop border.
- The main panel is matted on a classy Kiwi Kiss houndstooth pattern from Urban Oasis Designer Paper. It's attached to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Whisper White card base (scored on the side).
NEW CATTY JULY 1. I can hardly believe the release of the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog is getting closer (July 1). Stampin' Up! is going to a single, annual catalog (rather than twice a year) with 3 smaller catalogs offered throughout the year introducing new stamps and hostess sets.
RETIRING: I'll have the Stampin' Up! Retiring Stamp List posted on my Stampin' Pretty blog on June 1. I'm still waiting to hear on a release date for the Retiring Accessories List. The In Colors will be replaced with six new trendy colors (for another year).
DON'T FORGET: Your favorite designer papers using the current In Colors or the In Color Textured Card Stock, will be retiring July 1. If you covet these colors, be sure to take advantage of Stampin' Up!'s Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Promotion on Designer Paper and Textured Card Stock. Offer ends May 31!
