Good day everyone and welcome back!
A rainy day today so I thought I would do a blog post and share with everyone what’s on my worktable today…
Let’s have a closer look…do I see more bermuda bay and cucumber crush? This is such a fresh colour combination I am totally hooked by it.
I needed some cards for a swap and I always make multiple similar or same cards when I am creating. The supplies are already out and it takes almost no time to make several. If you make your own DSP and then cut it up, no two cards will be the same!
This card features an “oldie but a goodie” stamp set…Lovely as a Tree, and another favourite, Sheltering Tree, for the sentiment. In the rush to follow the newest and latest items, sometimes the classics get overlooked and both are carrying forward to the 2016/2017 annual catalog. Made my own DSP for this card using ink sprays and purchased stencils on manila cardstock, then added a bermuda bay card base and a whisper white layer to accent the handmade DSP. The focal panel was stamped in cucumber crush and bermuda bay with a light wash of soft sky added to the background. A bit of random ribbon left over from a gift I received was added before the panel was popped up on dimensionals.
This is the beauty of mixed media…the ability to create our own layers and mix them in with Stampin Up products. The card would have looked equally awesome with some of our linen thread wrapped around the focal panel.
