My first order from the catalogue consisted mainly of the must-have stamp sets, no Design Series Paper at this stage, but I do love the colours of the Into The Woods DSP. So for this Holiday DSP challenge, I decided to be inspired by the colours used in that range, there's quite a lot to choose from, so it was easy to pick a few to try with the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue,
Something about this stamp set (and Dove Of Peace) remind me of the seventies and the gorgeous, colourful fabrics clothing was made from and I know that I am going to enjoy lots of colouring in with these two. Gold heat embossing was the starting point today, and onto the Stampin' Up! White Vellum Cardstock, because it has lots of body. Once the embossing had set, it was easy to colour the gaps with Stampin' Write Markers® and then adhere with mini glue dots. I chose a sentiment from Cottage Greetings, the mixed fonts appeal to me.
Already in my stash were the Leaflets Framelits, which I bought at 15% off as a bundle with Vintage Leaves when the Annual Catalogue was released. I'm yet to share a card using that stamp, but it is great for masculine, sympathy and cards for gardeners - so I had to have it too!
If you need more information, or just want to tell me you like my card, leave a comment at the end, and I'll get back to you. There's a complete list of all the 'ingredients' used at the end of the blog, with a link back to each item in my 'Open All Hours' online store or this link will take you to the storefront. Now it's time to pop on over to Elizabeth's blog, Lilly Loves Paper.(I love that blog name!)
