I’m sharing a sneak peek of the Host set, Background Bits, from the upcoming 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog today.
Here is our sketch
I started by adhering a panel of Color Theory DSP (available June 1st) onto a panel of Old Olive card stock. Next, I cut a scalloped square panel from Delightful Daisy DSP (available June 1st) and adhered it to the Old Olive panels with liquid glue. I stamped the script image stamp from Background Bits onto a panel of Whisper White, stamping off once each time to lighten the Old Olive ink a little. That panel was adhered directly to the front with more liquid glue.
Next, I used the ink to rubber method (color directly on the stamp with Stampin’ Write markers) on the flowers and stems, using Old Olive and Calypso Coral inks. The flower grouping was die cut with a Layering Circle Framelit and framed with a Calypso Coral Scalloped Circle.
Versa Mark ink and White Emboss Powder were used for the sentiment and then heat embossed. I used my Banner Triple Punch to punch one end, added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel and adhered it to the circles. Finally, I popped the sentiment/art panel onto the Old Olive Layers with dimensionals, then added that whole panel to my Calypso Coral card base with more dimensionals.
The ink to rubber method was used again for the flower and stem, but for the sentiment and bottom stamp trim, I just stamped the Old Olive regularly.
*Card stock cuts and a complete list of stamping supplies needed to create this card are at the end of the post.
Don’t you just love the images in Background Bits? Remember, it is a new Host Exclusive Set available June 1st.
