CYCI 117 b

I just got back from Stampin’ Up’s OnStage Live event in Salt Lake City, where I was able to order some goodies from the upcoming 2016-2017 Annual Catalog. As a fortunate happenstance, one of the Designer Series Paper sets I got has Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and a brand new In-Color called Peekaboo Peach – exactly the colors I needed for today’s challenge!

I used two sheets of the Playful Palette DSP Stack, both the same pattern but in different colors. I lined up the patterns, then cropped them both to 4″ x 5-1/4″. Then, holding them together, I used the Medium Star Punch to cut out three stars. I lined up the Peekaboo Peach stars in the holes on the Basic Black DSP, and the Basic Black stars in the holes on the Peekaboo Peach DSP. This gives you two cards for the effort of one!

I glued the Basic Black DSP onto a Peekaboo Peach card base, and the Peekaboo Peach DSP onto a Basic Black card base, then glued the stars in place on both cards.

I stamped the YAY! star image from the new Confetti Celebration stamp set in both Basic Black and Peekaboo Peach ink onto Very Vanilla card stock, then cut them with the same punch.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in the same two colors onto Very Vanilla card stock, then cut them with the Washi Label Punch.

I attached the stamped pieces to the card fronts with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here are the current products I used:
