Striped Scallop Thinlit Packs a Punch

Sketched Birthday, Blue Ribbon, Striped Scallop Thinlit, Flower Frenzy Bigz L

 

The Striped Scallop Thinlit is a brand new item in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog, so I hope you noticed it by now. I was intrigued with it the moment I saw it, so you bet it was in my June order! There are various ways you can use it by using the entire cutout or just part of it. Or you can use it as an embossing tool of sorts to make a wonderful raised image in your background cardstock. I started this card by running all three of the colors chosen for the Pals Paper Arts color challenge this week (Basic Gray, Pool Party and Lost Lagoon) through the Big Shot. I don’t throw anything away so I definitely use the little cutouts, which was inspired by this card by Bev Gerard, a fellow Creative Crew Design Team member.

I absolutely love the new Bigz die Flower Frenzy and the biggest flower really makes a beautiful focal point for your cards. I layered it with the scallop circle punch and the sentiment from Blue Ribbon was stamped and punched with the 1 3/8″ circle punch. I versamarked the butterfly onto Pool Party CS from Polka Dot Pieces and heat embossed in white emboss powder. The sentiment from Sketched Birthday was stamped and then I used the Itty Bitty Banner (this is an indispensable tool) to cut it out in all three colors for a pretty touch. And, of course, a card truly isn’t complete till it has pearls, rhinestones, buttons, or candy dots!

Wetlands, Itty Bitty Banners, Masculine

 

Anyone who knows my husband will know how much he loves water! Every vacation we take is guaranteed to have it. Nothing makes him smile more than just knowing he is going to see it soon. So that is the reason behind this card. Wetlands is the absolute perfect stamp set for masculine cards!

This card started by masking off the bottom half of the card and sponging to my little heart’s content. I used Pacific Point for the sky (or is it water??) with just a little touch of Blushing Bride at the base. I then masked off the top and sponged a touch of Baked Brown Sugar. Finally I stamped the plants (anyone know the name of those?). The banner came next by embossing the first banner with Woodgrain Emboss Folder and the second was stamped with the beautiful Canada Goose and sponged on the edges. The little touch on the banners was made with the Chevron Ribbon turned inside out and looped and layered with the heart Wooden Element and Linen Thread. Keeping up with the banner theme, I stamped the sentiment in Baked Brown Sugar and trimmed it with the Itty Bitty Banners and popped it up with the banner Wooden Elements.
