Hope you all are doing well! I’m so happy to be back home in Florida. It didn’t rain at all today and I sat out in my screened porch for hours. It was so nice.
Today I’m sharing a card made with the Bordering on Romance Stamp Set (wood- 125480; clear-125482). I’m so glad this stamp set was carried over in the new Stampin’ Up catalog, because it is another one I really like using. I also used 2 of the new colors of card stock – Midnight Muse (126843) and Summer Starfruit (126839), and the new Oval Accent Bigz Clear Die (127005) to make this card. The Midnight Muse Card Stock was folded and cut with the die to make the card base and then the front of it was run through the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (113439) with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I sponged around the edges of it with Midnight Muse Ink (126860). The flower image was stamped twice in VersaMark (102283) on Watercolor Paper (122959), sprinkled with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder (101930), and heated with the Heat Tool (129053). The flowers and leaves were water colored with ink pads and my Aqua Painter (103954). It was then cut out with one of the dies from the Labels Collection Framelits Dies Set (125598). To make the mat behind the stamped image, I cut out another label with the same die, cut it in half and adhered the halves behind the stamped die-cut, leaving just a small border showing. Basic Pearls (119247) and a bow made with the new Whisper White Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (126877) were added. I used a stamp from the retired Curvy Verses Stamp Set and cut it out with one of the dies out of the new Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies Set (127003) for the inside of the card.
As you can see, I used a lot of new items from the 2012-2013 Idea Book and Catalog. You can get them by clicking on the “Order Stampin’ Up! Online” button in the right column. I hope you like today’s card!
