Here is a sneak peek project that I made using the outgoing Artistic Etchings stamp set (one of my all time faves ~ I will never part with it) and 3 of the new 2013-2014 In-Colors. This projects was featured at last weekend's Spring Fling 2 event and our stampers loved it! The color combo is Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana and Smoky Slate! Love, love, love the new colors and this shade of gray stamps BEAUTIFULLY and compliments so many colors. Also featured are the new Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder and the Quadrafancy DSP. This picture does not do justice to either. This embossing folder impression is beautiful from either side. The coordination DSP is so bright and cheery and just makes me happy! Did you notice that cute little label over to the right? That is the new stamp set "Label Love" and I punched it out with the coordinating Artisan Label Punch. I also used these two items to create the gifts that I gave to our guests (see below).
Also, how about that oval frame? Got the idea from fellow California demo, Patty Bennett...you can find the instructions here: Patty Stamps Blog. It is a great technique using 2 of our most popular framelits. Check it out!
Here are the super simple but super cute tags that I made for my stampers and check out the cute little tin that I decorated to hold them! I got these tins a few years back at convention and I have been hoarding them ever since, not wanting to part with them, but these tags fit in them perfectly so I knew I had to share them with my favorite girls!
I think that these tags would make a great class project, especially if you have a really cute container to put them in! Check out the one below that I decorated for them:
The DSP is more of the new design, Quadrafancy and the sentiment in the center of the flower "Made just for you" is from a stamp set that came out last year and will carry over to the new catalog. It is called Creatively Yours and is perfect for handmade projects and includes the SU! trademark stamp which complies with the SU! angel policy, so you can use it if you are selling your handmade projects. Here is what the set looks like:
This set sells for just $18.95 and is item# 122610.
I hope my extra long post did not bore you today, but I just had so much to share. Stay tuned for more projects from our recent Spring Fling 2!
Until next time ~
