More Amazing Silhouettes
Happy Monday, my friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. We sure did! It was lovely having all of the family together for dinner. Mike and I headed out of town after for some R&R and our anniversary. We went to Colonial Williamsburg (CW) did some shopping, and went out for dinner at our favorite seafood restaurant on the way home.
We realized that we are old. We spent a lot of time napping and reading (I’ll leave you to guess who read and who napped), and we enjoyed every second. It was a lovely trip!
Here’s another card using the Amazing Silhouettes Stamp Set that will be available January 3 in the new January-June Mini Catalog. We got this set free as a gift for attending Stampin’ Up!® OnStage a couple of weeks ago.
The stamps in this set are so fun. The way they’re cut, the image is the color of your card stock or paper. It’s the background that picks up the color. For this card, I used Balmy Blue to stamp the tree, then ripped and sponged the edges of the Basic White Cardstock layer using Old Olive. I think I didn’t know what paper I’d be putting under it, because Granny Apple Green Ink would have looked much better.
Here are a few more sneak peeks. The Stamp Set that the sentiment is from and the Designer Series Paper (DSP) are called Friendly Hello. During Sale-a-bration in January and February, you can get them both free with a $100 order.
The ribbon is also a product from the upcoming Mini Catalog – White 3/4″ Frayed Ribbon. It’s so fun to work with, and very soft. Instead of tying it, I zig-zagged it under the stamped image so the card wouldn’t be so bulky.
I knew I wanted to use the Hello, Friend sentiment, but didn’t want to cover up the stamped image. So I stamped it on Vellum Cardstock using Old Olive Classic Ink. It takes ink a little longer to dry on Vellum than on card stock, so I quickly used Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder to clear emboss the sentiment. Of course, if you’re using card stock, you can get the same effect by stamping a second time over the dry classic ink with VersaMark. Using your Stamparatus will help you stamp in the exact same spot, so your embossing will be perfect!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy! Have a lovely day. (I won’t post a product list this time, because most of the products aren’t available yet.)
