I love Sundays, because I get to play along with a new CYCI challenge. Here is this week’s sketch challenge…
…and here’s my card.
I’ve used some old products and some new, some retiring and some not out yet. (That’s just one perk of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator – you get the new stuff before anyone else!)
The card base is Sweet Sugarplum card stock – one of the 2016-2018 In-Colors.
The squares are cut with the new Layering Squares Framelits Dies from four different colors of card stock: Blackberry Bliss (retiring,) Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, and Elegant Eggplant.
The striped piece is Playful Palettes Washi Tape. It was just translucent enough to see the squares underneath, so I put it on a strip of Whisper White card stock before adhering it to the card.
The button is from the Regals Designer Buttons, and is attached with Glue Dots. The twine is Whisper White Baker’s Twine that I dyed with a couple drops from the Sweet Sugarplum Re-inker and a few drops of water.
The sentiment from the Sweet Stack stamp set is stamped in Elegant Eggplant directly onto the Sweet Sugarplum card base. This stamp set is being carried over to the new catalog!
Paper Pumpkin is a great way to spend 30-60 minutes each month relaxing, crafting, and hanging out with friends. Each month you receive a box full of goodies in the mail. It contains everything you need to complete that month’s project including ink pad(s) and an exclusive stamp set (you might need scissors and adhesive.) A clear acrylic block comes in your first kit to use with all your Paper Pumpkin stamps in the future.
When you subscribe month-to-month, the kits are $19.95 per month, which includes shipping. When you buy a prepaid subscription of 6- or 12-months, you save money! See the options here.
Be sure to check out the retiring products here, many of which are discounted up to 50%. Most items are only available while current supplies last, and none of them will be available after May 31. Some things have already sold out, so don’t wait!
