One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator is you get to order new products from an upcoming catalog before anyone else. Of course, there are other great things about being a Demo such as getting a discount and meeting new friends but I especially love that I can get my hands on new products sooner. I am not a very patient person!
One of the new products I was able to purchase is the Beauty Of The Earth Suite. This suite includes the stamp set called Beauty Of Friendship and coordinating dies called Beautiful Trees. There is also Designer Series Paper called Beauty Of The Earth which is so beautiful and an embossing folder called Bark. It is a 3D embossing folder which means it makes a deeper impression than a regular embossing folder.
To make this card I first cut the two 3.75″ x 3″ pieces of Designer Series Paper. The blue one looked like sky to me and the green on looked like grass so I thought they would make a great background together. Then I stamped the tree tops in Granny Apple Green ink and the tree trunks in Soft Suede. I cut them out using the coordinating dies (Beautiful Trees) and layered them on top of the Designer Series Paper so the leaves would cover the seam of the two pieces of DSP. I stamped the sentiment in Granny Apple Green ink and cut that out using a label die that is included in this bundle. I was going to leave it alone but then I decided it needed something else. I thought about adding sequins or epoxy dots but decided to use the bird die in the set instead. My backyard has a lot of Cardinals visiting me so I used Poppy Parade cardstock to cut it out.
There are no links at the bottom of this post because the products are not available to purchase until May 4th.
The new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog begins May 4th. If you are a customer of mine, I have already sent you one in the mail. Let me know if you didn’t get it as everyone knows the Post Office is kind of a mess these days. If you are not a customer and would like one, I would be happy to send you one for the cost of shipping.
