Sneak Peek: Lots of Bots

Stampin up lots of bots
Does this compute to cute?  The Lot of Bots stamp set will be available in the Stampin' Up! 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog beginning July 1.  Here's a peek at the new In Colors.Stampin up lots of bots circle scissor plus

  • I stamped my robot with Jet Black Stazon Ink on Whisper White card stock and Stampin' Up!'s new In Color Bermuda Bay card stock.
  • Time for the Paper Snips!  I dissected pieces from the Bermuda Bay image and adhered to the white base.
  • For the hat and eyes, I grabbed the new Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Marker.
  • The image was cropped using a Circle Scissor Plus and Glass Mat.  TIP:  The beauty of the Circle Scissor Plus is that you can create circles in any size from 1" to 6".  Even itsy, bitsy increments.
  • I "dialed" the Circle Scissor Plus up 1/4" and cropped the Basic Black circle.  The robot image was adhered to the black mat with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Nifty.
  • A nuts and bolts stamp from Lots of Bots was inked in Jet Black Stazon and stamped on Bermuda Bay card stock for a fun patterned paper.
  • The sentiment is part of the same robot stamp.  TIP:  To isolate only the text, I inked up the sentiment area and used a post-it to cover the rest of the robot before stamping.
  • A Small Oval Punch gave it a new figure.
  • NEW TOOL!  That's the work of Stampin' Up!'s new Modern Label Punch tucked behind in Basic Black.   It's dashing with a sentiment on it's own or as the snazzy backdrop featured.
  • The punch and sentiment were layered on Bermuda Bay Textured card stock.  TIP:  Starting with the new catalog, Stampin' Up!'s Assorted Textured In Color card stock will come in both 12 x 12 and 8.5 x 11 sizes.
  • The 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base is scored at the top.  TIP:  For a more polished look,  I fold the score so that the indentation is on the outside and the raised area ("bump") is on the inside.
  • The perfect touch (and I mean "perfect") is Stampin' Up!'s coordinating Bermuda Bay Polka Dot 1/2" Grosgrain Ribbon.  It's incredibly easy to work with (no slipsy, slidey want to toss it in the garbage stuff going on).  The ribbon will be available on July 1 in all six new In Colors.
