Stitched Shapes Framelits and Sneak Peek


Hi Friends. I couldn't resist using one of the new stamp sets I received at the On Stage event, with the fabulous Stitched Shapes Framelits. And I do mean 'fabulous'. I LOVE these framlets! Right now they are definitely my new favourite accessories. And I must say, they look so nice on my card:

 
I used the emboss resist technique with the "Oh So Succulent" stamp set (available Jan 4/17 for customers, Dec 1/16 for demonstrators - a good reason to join Stampin' Up! and my "Serene Stampers" community!)  "Oh So Succulent" is also a 2-step stamp set, which is always fun. This was a quick and easy card to make - I hope you like it!



Supplies:
·       Stamp Sets: Oh So Succulent (142992) available Jan. 4/17
·       Card Stock: Always Artichoke (105119), Basic Black (121045), Whisper White (100730)
·       Stamp Pads:  Old Olive (126953), Always Artichoke (126972), Versamark (102283), Cucumber Crush (138324), Emerald Envy (141396)
·       Misc.:  Heat Tool (129053), Embossing Buddy (103083), White Embossing Powder (109132), Wink of Stella Clear (141897), SNAIL Adhesive (104332), Glue Dots (103683), 5/8” Organza Ribbon (114319), Subtles Enamel Shapes (141679), Big Shot (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658), Stitched Shapes Framelits (145372), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430), Stampin’ Sponge (141337), Blender Pens (102845)
         
Measurements:  
·       Always Artichoke: 4 ¼” x 11” & 3” x 3”
·       Whisper White:  4” x 5 ¼” (for layer) & 3 ¾” x 5” (stamped piece), 3 ½” x 3 ½” (sentiment)

Instructions:
1.     Fold Always Artichoke cardstock in half at 5 ½”  to create a base card.
2.     Wipe embossing buddy over 3 ¾” x 5” whisper white. Use versamark to randomly stamp from Oh So Succulent, omitting the top right portion. Sprinkle white embossing powder over, shake off excess and set with heat tool.
3.     Sponge Old Olive over images, then sponge some Always Artichoke. Wipe cloth over images to remove the resisting ink. Sponge edge with Always Artichoke.
4.     Use blender pen with ink pads to colour in the succulents. Add Clear Wink of Stella where desired.
5.     Adhere stamped piece onto 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White and wrap with Organza ribbon. Tie a knot and use snail adhesive to adhere to card base.
6.     Wipe embossing buddy over 3” x 3” piece of Always Artichoke. Stamp sentiment using versamark. Sprinkle White embossing powder over top, shake off excess and set with heat tool.
7.     Cut out sentiment using oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits.
8.     Cut out next larger size oval on the 3 ½” x 3 ½” piece of Whisper White. Adhere to card front, top right corner, with snail. Use stampin’ dimensionals to adhere embossed sentiment on top.
9.     Add enamel shapes, as shown.
