Stampin’ Up! really like to keep us demonstrators on our
toes! Yesterday morning, after they had done it, they
announced the Clearance Rack was being updated. ☺
I try not to send out an email newsletter more than once a
month, and I had sent one on Sunday evening with a couple
of important reminders for customers. Then first thing
yesterday morning, I hurriedly had to send out a second
email to give all my customers a fair chance of picking up
some of the amazing offers that were available. I hope
you were able to purchase the products you wanted.
Today’s card is my first play with the Beautiful Baubles
Stamp Set and Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies. My first idea
was to use my Stamparatus to stamp the image three
times across the front of but the size of the stamp ruled
out this idea! However, I did use my Stamparatus so I could
make sure I achieved a good impression.
I coloured the baubles using Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green
and So Saffron Marker Pens, but I wasn’t happy with the
result at all! I moved on to Plan B! I stamped the image on
to three fairly plain designs from the All is Bright
Designer Series Paper (DSP). The designs were in Cherry
Cobbler, Garden Green and Crumb Cake.
I mixed the colours up and adhered the die-cuts, over the
images I had painted! It looked so very much nicer! I
adhered the top Whisper White Cardstock (CS) layer to a
layer of Crumb Cake CS, and then adhered some Crumb
Cake ribbon around the bottom.
I stamped the image and die cut it using an Oval Stitched
Shape Framelits die. Then I layered it onto a Crumb Cake
CS Scalloped Oval and then a Cherry Cobbler CS straight cut
oval. I used Dimensionals to sit the sentiment astride the
ribbon, and added a bow in the same ribbon.
I finished the front of the card using some Basic Rhinestones
on the sentiment. Inside the card I added a layer of
Whisper White CS onto a layer of Crumb Cake CS, and
finished off with several baubles lying on the “floor”!
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project. Although I was
disappointed with my first attempt, I’m very pleased how
it turned out with Plan B! LOL!
That’s about it from me today!
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.

Beautifully rendered Jan. I'm still waiting for this bundle to arrive, but love the thought of all that colouring. I rather like the addition of the Crumb Cake (I wouldn't have thought of it personally) both in the baubles and ribbon and c/s … it's quite lovely! Well done, friend!!
Hi, Geraldine. Like you, I wouldn't have thought about Crumb Cake except it's one of the colours the DSP co-ordinates with. And yes, what a pleasant surprise to see them go together so well! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

Hi, Bonny. No, I’m afraid there isn’t. xx
