In the Moment with New Horizons

Welcome back, my friends! I’m so excited to show you the card I made with the In the Moment Stamp Set with the New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP). These are both in the Stampin’ Up!® 2022 January-June Mini Catalog.

I have to say that the New Horizons DSP may be my absolute favorite ever in the history of DSP. It is so beautiful, and is a gorgeous background for many stamps. Really, you can add a sentiment and that’s all you need, although there are lots of stamps and die-cuts you can add to elevate a card. Take a look.

I made this card to show the versatility of the Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends Collection that are available as a pre-release product from the upcoming 2022-2023 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. I stamped the lady on the deck from the In the Moment Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, then colored with the Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends. These aren’t just for skin tones; I gave her a lovely khaki dress, a neutral hat, and a lovely white wine. I also colored the deck with one of the dark tones. Sadly, there are no dies with the set, but I fussy cut the image with my Paper Snips. I know this is weird, but I find fussy cutting relaxing.

I selected one of the patterns in the New Horizons DSP that I thought would work well with the image. After I added the lady on the deck to the paper, it looked a little strange. There was a little deck and a lot of water. I decided to use my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to extend the deck, then colored it the same as the original image. Must better! Now, she’s the lady who lives in a lake house that I want to be friends with. If I had colored her hair a little lighter, she could be my dear friend Susan!

I stamped the birds – also from the In the Moment Stamp Set – in Tuxedo Black Memento. Then I did a little masking with the sentiment from Blessings of Home Stamp Set – also from the 2022 January-June Mini Catalog from Stampin’ Up!®. I used a piece of tape to cover the for love part of the sentiment, then inked my stamp with Evening Evergreen Classic Ink. After removing the tape, I stamped directly onto the DSP. You can also use a Stampin’ Write Marker to ink only the parts of the stamp you want to use.

I trimmed the DSP, then added it to an Evening Evergreen Cardstock panel. (True confession – again. I really think this is retired Perfect Peacock. I think I may have grabbed a dark green from the wrong slot in my DSP files.) Finally, I added the layers to a So Saffron card base.

This card makes me happy, because it reminds me that spring is one the way!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
