Another card made with the set Sweet Stems and Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper, from the catalog coming out in *9 days*…
This is another peek at the new set called Sweet Stems. This is such a cute set, with a lot of versatility! Did I mention that there is a new embosslit which matches this set, also making an appearance in the new catalog? If you aren’t sure what an “embosslit” is – it’s a small little dynamo, that you put into the Big Shot, that both embosses AND cuts out a shape! How fabulous is that?? I will post a peek at the Sweet Stems embosslit in a few days. You’re going to LOVE it!
Not only did I use the Sweet Stems set, but the sentiment is from the new Love You Much set (available NOW in a very special bundle – see sidebar for details). It’s stamped in Kiwi Kiss. That panel is popped up on dimensionals, making it stand out (literally) in person!
This card uses not only a new stamp set (well, technically TWO new stamp sets!),. but also the lucious new Raspberry Tart paper. You are really going to want this paper! It features Kiwi Kiss, Pretty In Pink, Rose Red, Real Red, and Cameo Coral. GREAT for Valentine’s, Spring, and Summer! I had a hard time choosing which pattern to use for this card. It also coordinates with the Sweet Stems stamp set perfectly!
To color the images, I used my trusty blender pen with Pretty In Pink, Rose Red, and So Saffron. I also sponged the edges of the little squares with Pretty In Pink ink. The ribbon is SO yummy…I really think this ribbon is SU!’s biggest secret!! The double-sided Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla ribbon is too, too scrumptious for words. Seriously, it has a feel that no other ribbon has…it’s thick, silky, and so, so pretty. I seem to want hoard it for cards that are “worthy”…lol I mounted the bow to the card using a pop-up glue dot (Item 104183) – not the mini size this time. One thing I like about the regular size is that although they come off the sheet round, you can stretch/shape them to fit whatever you are putting them under. Really fantastic for heavy 3-D items like bows!
