What's not to love about new Stampin' Up products? The excitement and enthusiasm that leads up to a new catalogue launch is contagious and once I delved into the new 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue I couldn't put it down!
After making the card "A Patterned Hello" a few days ago using the absolutely gorgeous Pick A Pattern DSP (designer series paper), I couldn't stop myself thinking of new ways to put this set to good use. It is definitely becoming one of my favourites!
A New Horizon
The card I created was not quite the way I first envisioned it, but I love how it turned out. What I particularly like is that it is has a masculine feel about it. It can easily be given to a teenage boy, and I decided against using a sentiment as I also thought this may detract from the circles and the layout/ impact of the card front as a whole, thus making it versatile for a range of occasions.
The Pieces & Patterns stamp set contains 14 rubber stamps that encompass background patterns, sentiments and some cute characters. For this card I used five different background stamps to create the various patterned circles, and stuck with the complementary colours used in the DSP - Sahara Sand, Flirty Flamingo, Emerald Envy, & Crushed Curry. Each circle was framed in black to make them pop, and the large circle I added another dimension by adding a circle window sheet, adhering another black frame & then gluing on the mountain scene that was fussy cut from the DSP. It was mounted with dimensionals behind the mountains, as was the top left circle.
The new products will be released 1st June 2017, but in the meantime CLICK HERE to shop online for supplies at my store.
