Today’s card is another sample we made at our recent OnStage event. These events are great as we get an early ‘sneak peek’ at upcoming products. If you’d like to be able to see product early (along with loads of other benefits) why not join me and become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator – check out my ‘Join My Team‘ page for more info.
This card features the Bird Ballad Suite (pages 90 to 92). The stamp set has 6 outline images just waiting to be coloured – ink, watercolour pencils, Stampin’ Blends or Stampin’ Markers. Each method gives a different look to your project. The stamp set can be purchased on it’s own, as part of a bundle (saving you 10%) with the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies (page 196) or by buying the whole suite (again just one code to get it all).
Our colouring method for this card was the Stampin’ Blends. Did you know we now have 36 Stampin’ Blends colours to choose from plus Bronze and Ivory. Four new In Colours were added (Rococo Rose, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray and Purple Posy) plus So Saffron and Gray Granite. You can check out the Stampin’ Blends on page 179 of the new AC.
The background design is the Bird Ballad DSP. This comes in a pack of 12 sheets of 12″ x 12″ paper. You get two sheets of 6 double sided designs – one side has a design on it and the other side is more of a pattern. New to our range of ribbons and trim is the 3/8″ (1 cm) Scalloped Lace Trim in Very Vanilla. As you can see above it can be used to trim the edge of your image or ties to a lovely bow.
Within this suite is the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin – check them out on page 168 – this would make a lovely gift for somebody special.
Don’t forget to check out pages 90 to 92 to see all the products included in this suite.
Well that’s all for now. I’ll be back soon with the third card we made which features the Follow Your Art Suite (pages 52 – 54).
Until then …
