World of Dreams is a Natural Choice

World of Dreams, Good Greetings

I could not wait to get the new stamp set, World of Dreams, out and play! Isn’t it so beautiful?! This set just oozes a natural setting so I chose very natural colors, Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso, and Crumb Cake cardstocks. The sketch is from this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge.

My card started by stamping onto Very Vanilla with the two larger stamps as well as stamping two of the leaf branches. The two branches were cut with the Square framelit, then a layer of Crumb Cake cardstock was cut. Early Espresso cardstock was trimmed with the Tiny Wave Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade for a fun border. The adorable bird and nest were stamped with Early Espresso and cut with Apothecary Accents framelits, and framed out with a Window Frame Framelit in Pear Pizzazz. Natural Chevron (solid side up) and Venetian Crochet Trim were layered together and glued down. I love the sweet bow that the Crochet Trim makes! The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso and cut with a Itty Bitty Banner Framelit. I just added a couple of Very Vanilla Candy Dots and this card was done. It was a fast and easy card (my favorite!) with the help of my wonderful Big Shot and supply of framelits.

I have a tip for you! You may know this already (if you do, why didn’t you tell me?) but have you ever needed to separate your layers of paper after it was “glued” down? I use Fast Fuse, so, once it’s down, you will tear your paper trying to get it up UNLESS you use your trusty Heat Tool over the area you need to pull back up! No more tearing your paper when you need to separate them!!

Watercolor Wonder Still Comes in Handy

Adventure Awaits

All things Stampin’ Up have been pretty hectic this week, wouldn’t you say? Wow, I sure wish I could have attended convention this week! It looks like there was lots to do and see. The Pals who attended made sure that those of us who couldn’t attend felt included. Mary Fish had a contest called “Home is Where the Heart is” for us to post cards we made this week, and many Pals were so awesome to post photos as they were happening. Almost as good as being there! LOL The Holiday Mini Catalog, which isn’t that mini this year, was unveiled and those who attended were even allowed to purchase items. Lucky!! But that’s OK, the rest of us can order right around the corner, so I am just going to be patient and start my planning. So many wonderful products are coming!

Anyway, back to my project… The Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew challenge was “make a Scrapbook, Displayed Art, This & That Journal, and More, using the provided sketch.” Well, I still had our fantastic trip to Turkey on my mind so I used the sketch to highlight the best part of our trip – the hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia at sunrise. What an incredible experience!

  • Paper: Watercolor Wonder DSP, Marine Mist, Whisper White
  • Ink: Old Olive, Marine Mist
