Wonderful Posy

Here is a little sneak peak of what you will see in the new catalog! This card was created for the SCCSC72 Sketch Challenge on Stampin Connection. Here is my card:

And here is the sketch created by yours truly:

Stamps: Posy Punch, Just believe
Cardstock: Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush, Whisper White
DSP: Cheerful Treat
Ink: Concord Crush, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive, Pear Pizzaz Seam Binding Ribbon, Top Note Die, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Fancy Flower Punch, Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents, Paper Snips, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder.

The card base is Wisteria Wonder (one of the new In Colors for this year) cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. The card front was run through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder.

Next I cut a piece of Cheerful Treat DSP and Concord Crush cardstock 4” x 5” and ran these through the Big Shot on the Top Note die. I trimmed the edges of the top note down to the stitching marks with my Paper Snips and adhered it to the Concord Crush top note. The top note layers were adhered to the card front and then the excess was trimmed off. A piece of Pear Pizzaz Seam Binding ribbon was wrapped around the card front and tied into a knot.

The flower from Posy Punch was stamped in Elegant Eggplant on Wisteria Wonder cardstock and punched out with the Fancy Flower Punch. Tombow Multi-Purpose adhesive was added in the dots in the flower’s center and around the petals and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter was added to give the flower some sparkle. Then I added some Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents to the flower because just the glitter wasn’t enough sparkle. The flower was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The greeting from Just Believe was stamped in Wisteria Wonder ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and was punched out with the Word Window Punch. The Modern Label Punch was used on a scrap of Concord Crush cardstock. The greeting was adhered to the Concord Crush label, two rhinestones were added, and the greeting label was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

There are so many fun new products in the new catalog that I just can’t wait to play with! I just know you’ll love it! Contact me if you would like to order a catalog!
