Backyard Basics and Venetian Romance

Backyard Basics and Venetian Romance

Good grief – retired products are just FLYING off the shelves at Stampin’ Up!  I made this card 2 days ago to post for you today, and the stamp set for the tulip, Backyard Basics, has already sold out!  It’s important to get your order in right away before your favorites are gone for good!

I’ll show you the cad anyway, because it also includes other great products that are soon to retire.  You could always change the tulip image to something else.

  • I’ve loved the pretty colors in Venentian Romance designer paper, so I started with a piece that is Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla.
  • The Soft Suede cardstock circle is cut out with the 3-1/2″ Circle Die which is also retiring.
  • The sentiment comes from Delightful Dozen stamp set, also retiring!  Grab this nifty set before it’s gone, too!
  • A Pistachio Pudding Boutique Details accents this card on top of a 1″ Soft Suede cardstock circle.  Be sure to grab these greate embellishments.  We still have a full year with the 2013-15 In Color palette.

Cantaloupe Congrats

cataloupe congrats

I sound like a stuck record (wow, I just realized how "old school" that phrase is!) but the quickest, easiest way to design a card is to start with a luscious designer paper like Venetian Romance.  The color scheme is unusual yet absolutely gorgeous – Crisp Cantaloupe, Island Indigo, Pistachio Pudding, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla.  

  • Here I've begun with a card base of Very Vanilla then added Crisp Cantaloupe which has been paper punched around the edge.
  • I tied a piece of Soft Suede around the designer paper and adhered it to the base.
  • Now for some stamping – I used one of the "Best of 25 Years" stamp set called Best of Flowers to stamp the flower image in Island Indigo, then Sweet Essentials stamp set and Soft Suede ink to stamp the sentiment.
  • I added a strip of Tangerine Tango card stock to separate the two stamped areas and viola – that's it!
