Trying very hard to get to play with some new products, only problem is the accumulated samples and trials on my desk, so I am slowly clearing away the pile of unfinished ideas, being very disciplined and finishing each one.
I have had these PoolParty gals on my desk for so long!
I love this retired DSP and have teamed it with some Lucky Limeade Cardstock, various ribbon trims,brads, buttons and bows and some embroidery thread. I am quite happy with how they turned out because I have been avoiding them for ages.
Each card has a strip of Pool Party C'ordinations cardstock embossed using the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder, which is then trimmed using the Large Scallop Edgelits and then sanded to give the 2 tone effect which I really love.The stamped image is from the Million Dollar Moments set and it is cut with the Ovals Framelits. I used different sentiments and embellishments for detail.
The hearts and the umbrella have little highlights using a silver Gel pen, and the bow is secured with a pool party button and some linen thread.
I really love the daisy from the Best of Flowers set. Not just because it is a great size and looks quite lifelike with its asymmetrical petals, but because it coordinates perfectly with the 11/4" scallop punch.
Neither of these products is retiring, nor is the delicate designs EF and matching framelit so you will see more of them in future posts. Stampin' Up! certainly make it so easy with so many coordinating products to use together.
You can hop onto the Stampin Up site from the shop now button above and order some for yourself.
Thanks for Looking, Liz
