Taking a Creative Trip Around the Bend!

Crop and Layer Curves with the All Around Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card designed by Mary Fish, Stampin Pretty Earn Tulip Rewards

The Stampin’ Up! Around the Bend bundle hit the list of My Favorite Things the moment I “spied” it in the Spring mini.  I cropped and layered the curves for a modern and colorful combination.

WHAT I LOVE ! Bold colors really speak to me for this Around the Bend spring thank you card, especially when balanced with a good dose of Whisper White.  The Enjoy the Journey Designer Series Paper (FREE with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration) was my “muse” for the splashy patterns and color choices.

NEED COLOR INSPIRATION? The colors used on this card are based on the color combination shown below, one of five that I shared on Tuesday’s post.

Color Combinations Inspired by Enjoy the Journey DSP Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Basic White

PROJECT TUTORIAL:

Begin by burnishing the fold of the card base with a Bone Folder.

Adhere the Mango Melody layer to the card base with Stampin’ Seal.

Crop one edge each of the three pieces of Designer Series paper with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard)and the curved edge of the “lacy” die. NOTE! Take time the time to play with the layers and curves until you get layout that feels right.

Layer and adhere to the Basic White layer as shown with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (allows you a second or two to adjust before it’s stuck).

Crop the Mango Melody layer with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard)and the curved edge of the lacy die (bottom) along with scalloped edge die (top). Both dies can be lined up and go on the same trip through the die-cut machine.

Layere and adhere to the card as shown with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use a Paper Trimmer to cut the Basic White layer as well as the overhanging Designer Series Paper pieces down to 3 3/4 x 5.

Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Seal.
