Good Morning Stampers!
Last night I did a small unboxing video on my Facebook Business page. I was showing a few extra products I received from the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog that goes live in May. (if you wish to see this video please go to Facebook and search @StampWithShel)
Today I wanted to share a card I made using some of those new products combined with some old (current) products.
One of the products showcased last night was the FABULOUS new Basic Borders dies. This is a stand-alone set of dies that has six different dies! These are all FABULOUS!
I will be honest with you, I immediately was excited about five of these dies....but one of those dies did not impress me much. At first glance, it looked like an uneven blob. I wondered what in the heck were they thinking when they made this die?!
Well....I quickly ate my words when I realized that this was a CLOUD DIE! It can cut clouds but I wanted to use it with my blending brushes and Balmy Blue ink to create a cloud background.
Here is my card:
Check out that GORGEOUS background!!! I absolutely love it! And it is so very easy to make!
My card base is Evening Evergreen with a Real Red mat layer.
The tree with the two-step stamped tree is from the A-M-A-Z-I-N-G new suite found on page 10 called Beauty of the Earth. Check out the detail in the tree foliage....completely done with just the two-step stamp!
The deer is from the current stamp set called Rustic Retreat found on page 57 of the 2020-2021 current annual catalog.
The birds are from the current stamp set called Sailing Home found on page 31 of the 2020-2021 current annual catalog
The deer was colored with Soft Suede light and Crumb Cake light Stampin' Blends
The grass was hand drawn with Evening Evergreen Light and Soft Succulent light and dark Stampin' Blends.
Did you know there are five NEW stand-alone die sets in the new Annual Catalog?
They will work with tons of stamp sets....but are not bundled with any stamps:
