SNEAK PEEK.... I'm sure you've noticed a few other sneak peeks around. I've got one to share today featuring the NEW Sprinkles of Life stamp set from the upcoming Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue! A portion of sales from every one of these sets goes directly to the Ronald McDonald House Charities - which is pretty awesome. The stamp set a pretty awesome too with some fun images and sentiments and can be paired with a coordinating punch to make creating your projects even easier. I've got not one, not two, but three cards to share with you today featuring some clouds, cupcakes and ice cream! Are you intrigued yet.. check out my samples ................
I decided to make a card with a bunch of silver clouds to coordinate with the sentiment "Every cloud has a silver lining ~ you just have to look up to see it." Such a great saying. I stamped the clouds in one of the NEW In-Colours called Mint Macaron. I'm loving the new colours, and they go great together too. Stampin' Up! sure got it right on trend with these colours once again.
I added the silver clouds with Stampin' Dimensionals to make them pop off the page a bit more. The rain drops were added by stampin off once so the colour wasn't as intense as the clouds themselves. I did use another "sneak peek" item called the Triple Banner Punch - I'm a sucker for paper punches so it was a no-brainer ordering this for me! I created the banner that my sentiment is on top of with it. It is super easy to do, just cut your strip of paper - I used a 1" strip and inserted it into the punch... and TA-DA! A flagged banner, so simple. It also punches a 1-1/2" and 2" strip banner, how great is that?
Well nothing goes better with rain then some comfort food...... cupcakes and ice cream! Yet another fun image and sentiment - it's actually the same stamp I used for the cloud, but I added some sprinkles using Tip Top Taupe, another new In-Colour. I love the name... super fun! The cupcakes are made using Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder. I added a bit more colour with the last two in colours Cucumber Crush and Delightful Dijon for the candles on the center cupcake. Great new colours don't you think?!
With the easy to use Tree Builder Punch it made cutting out the cupcake tops super simple. I did fussy cut the candles, but it was easy too. Yet another fun sentiment, "Money can't buy happiness... but it can buy cupcakes, and that's kind of the same thing." So cute!
I just had to try to make an ice cream cone... a really BIG one too. Best part is there are no calories to these babies. It's a mint, strawberry and vanilla cone - six scoops of YUM! I made my own center band using the new Bohemian Borders stamp set. A great set to add fun borders to your projects.
And another fun sentiment for this card "Hope your day stacks up to be one good thing on top of another." Love, love, love this set and all the fun sentiments. I can see this set being a super popular one. I hope you like my shares - only a little more than a week until the new catalogue is available, are you excited........ I AM! Enjoy the sunshine and have a great day :)
