Hello stampin' friends! There's a just a few days left to order the Color Your Seasons bundle which includes the Blended Seasons stamp set and Stitched Seasons framelits. If you can only choose one, make sure it's the Stitched Seasons framelits...you will LOVE having these versatile pieces--especially the three graduated-in-size tags--in your collection!
Also, I'm hearing that the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2, which is being offered until the end of August, will NOT be in a future publication (it was originally stated that it "might" be) so you might want to snag a set of those as well! This set includes four of our new colors--Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Balmy Blue and Gorgeous Grape--as well as six of our returning colors--Cherry Cobbler, Flirty Flamingo, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Garden Green and Night of Navy. It's the perfect addition to our current Water Color pencil assortment...but again, only available until the end of August!
For today's project, I paired the Color Your Seasons bundle with the festive Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper, which you'll find in the 2018-19 Stampin' Up! catalog.
To make the tag, I chose a piece of the DSP and cut it to 3-1/2" x 5". I also cut a strip of Real Red cardstock 1" x 5". The Real Red was adhered to the center of the DSP then run through the Big Shot with the medium-sized label framelit. I also cut two of the foliage pieces from Old Olive cardstock and tucked the stems between the red and the DSP. "Merry Christmas" is stamped in black StazOn ink. I wrapped some Linen Thread around the piece twice, securing it on the back with adhesive, then tied a bow on the front. Finally, I added a few of the Metallic Pearls.
My original thought was to place this piece directly onto the DSP I used in the background but it really needed something to help it stand out. I decided to add a 3-1/4" x 4" piece of Early Espresso cardstock which I ran through the Big Shot in the Simple Stripe embossing folder.
To finish it up, I layered the focal piece onto the pine DSP and finally onto a Shaded Spruce card base and added a splatter of Wink of Stella to everything.
I am really going to miss not being able to use these beautiful stamps and framelits in blog projects, but they are definitely staying in my very-limited "couldn't part with it" collection!
Please join me on Thursday when I'll be back with another stamping project to share!
