Back in early May, Stampin’ Up! did an early release on one of the new bundles from the 2017 – 2018 Annual catalog. The Eastern Beauty Bundle included the stamp set, coordinating thinlet dies, card and ink pads in three of the new in-colors. Needless to say I, like many other demonstrators fell on this set – it is beautiful and so very versatile and the rich tones of the new colors were a perfect foil for the stamps. I have some I will be sharing in the coming days.
I was planning to make some cards for July 4th and the stamp set was sitting on my workbench so I picked it up with some Real Red and Night of Navy ink and this was the result!
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Real Red Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Night of Navy Card
Layer 2: 5 x 4 Whisper White Card ~ the long side is punched with the Ticket Tear Border punch which brings the final measurement down to 3 3/4 and will layer perfectly onto the Night of Navy layer.
Ink Colors: Night of Navy, Real Red and Versamark (for heat embossing the silver stars)
I used a couple of extra stamp sets Thoughtful Banners for the ‘celebrate’ and ‘Tabs for Everything’ for the stars, but you could use any other small stamps that you might have in your stash!
…. and check out that ribbon ~ crinkled seam binding ~ it is so easy to work with and looks so luscious.
