Well, I didn’t think I would be viewing the preview stamps until I got up in the morning. All stamp sets in the new catalog will be die cut, even the hostess sets, Yeah! Way to go SU! Makes it so much easier when we get our new rubber, no cutting. The new “In Colors” are yummy. Also a new scallop punch that does a line of scallops, way cool! Some of the stamp sets are really cute. Loving a couple of the hostess sets. Thats all until morning.
Here is my version of Lisa Somerville’s Fresh Cuts card, that is on Stamper’s Showcase today. I changed the colors and didn’t use Baroque Motifs on the main card. I can’t tell you the last time I used glossy paper. The technique used on this card is, Re-inker Splash. Which I’ve never done before. You take a clear envelope and cut both sides to open up flat and add several drops of re-inker, not too close together or you muddy the colors. Close the envelope and reopen. Place your stamped image stamp side up, close envelope, open quickly and pour on clear embossing powder over image and heat. I used Cameo Coral and Certainly Celery. I saw a card made with these colors on someone’s blog and thought that they went really well together. And since I hardly ever use Cameo Coral, this was a color combo I had to try. If felt good to stamp again. I think its been over a week since I picked up a stamp. Yikes! I forgot to add that the stamp set I used is, Fresh Cuts.
