Sweet Stems is one of the brand NEW sets that will appear in the 2009 Spring Idea Book and Catalog. However today, you get a sneak peek at this darling new set!
I think we can all agree that this set is versatile and fun! Notice the bright colors? Be prepared to see Kiwi Kiss pair up with some classic faves. TRENDWATCH: Rose Red gets a BIG boost this spring thanks to the upcoming Raspberry Tart DSP, along with Pretty in Pink, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, and So Saffron…they are all mixed to make up hot, Hot, HOT color combos that are all over the catalog sneak peeks!
This simple, but sweet little card starts on a base of Rose Red, which was stamped with the featured flower in Rose Red. The Kiwi Kiss strip gets inked in Kiwi with another flower from the set. The scallop-edge punched So Saffron piece has the sentiment (from “Heard from the Heart”), in Rose Red. Rose Red grosgrain gives a nice little accent. The Whisper White piece was stamped with the larger flower from Sweet Stems, and then colored using a blender pen and ink from my Rose Red, So Saffron, Kiwi Kiss, and Apricot Appeal ink pads. Two-Way Glue was used to add some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the circles and the edge of the 1 3/4″ circle was sponged withi more Rose Red and popped up on dimensionals.
Oh – there is a coordinating Embosslit you can use with your Big Shot coming out with this new catalog that exactly matches the stamp on the Whisper White circle! This set has SO much potential and SU! has given us this fun addition to coordinate with a stamp set! Love it!!
Enjoy (and watch for MORE sneak peeks this week!),
