Last Friday was my husbands birthday (it was also my birthday – yes we share the same day but different years). For ages I’ve resisted buying the Guy Greetings stamp set – I just can’t get past the image of the old fashioned boxer – but I finally succumbed to purchasing it. I may even step outside my comfort zone and challenge myself to use THAT image! So the first project I’ve created with this set was the birthday card for Phil.
One of the new products in the catalogue (which goes live tomorrow) is the Copper Trim – love it – and I wanted to use it on this project. I’ve combined it with Copper Foil and Copper Embossing Powder for the image and the sentiment. The new trim is great – it starts off thin but you can tease it out as I’ve done and it becomes ‘mesh’ like. Copper goes really well with Very Vanilla and Night of Navy.
I’ve found that if you want a really good impression when using the Textured Embossing Folders is to light spray your cardstock with water before placing the cardstock in the folder and running it through the Big Shot.
I’ve even remembered to take a photo of the inside! The ‘hat’ image is actually two rows of hats but I only wanted one so I masked off the line I didn’t want and stamped the remaining image twice along the bottom of the inside. This image and the sentiment are stamped in Night of Navy.
Tomorrow is a big day in the Stampin’ Up! world as the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue goes live. If you haven’t received your copy of the new catalogue please contact me and I’ll get one out to you.
Check back tomorrow when I’ll show you my swaps from our recent team training featuring a new set called Ribbon of Courage that Patty Bennett helped design as part of her Million Dollar Sales achievement.
