I decided to start typing my post on the train on the way home. There something about the train at 10:00pm, it’s much louder than it should be! I had a very nice visit with my friend Greg. It was so nice to see him, it has been way too long. We had a nice dinner at a diner not far from where he is staying on 52nd Street. We both had a bacon and blue cheese burger with fries and really good coleslaw and a delicious pickle!
So I gave you a little sneak peek of my card that I made with some of the new goodies from my Catalog Pre-Order and as promised here is the entire card! I used some Basic Black Card Stock for my base. The background is a piece of Watercolor Paper. All of the stamped images are from the Butterfly Basics Photopolymer Stamp Set*. I stamped the leaves in Pear Pizzaz and used a paintbrush that I kept pretty wet to brush across the paper. I think that it’s really cool the way that the green tinted the paper but left the leaves brown. The image down the left is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the greeting in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A piece of 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon is flagged and adhered across the bottom with Fast Fuse. On top of that is another one of the images heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum Card Stock and adhered with some more Fast Fuse. The butterfly is cut out with the Butterfly Thinlits*. I adhered the die cut to some Vellum Card Stock and cut around it with my Paper Snips. I used the new Bermuda Bay* and Pear Pizzaz* Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to color in the back side and adhered it to the card with some Glue Dots. A quick brush with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen on the body for a little sparkle! To finish the card I used one of the Gold Basic Metal Buttons with some Linen Thread tied in a bow. I love the elements in the stamp set, so many different ones all with an eclectic feel to them! I hope that you enjoyed your sneak peek at some of the new goodies from the upcoming 2015 Occasions Catalog. Thank you for stopping by and have an amazing Thursday! 🙂
