Around The Bend

Stampin Up Around The Bend

So far, our stay in Florida has been fantastic!  We have a place that is right on the beach of the gulf coast.  The weather has been sunny and warm and, well, just perfect.  Every morning we get up and walk the beach.  My mother used to come here and she was the shell queen.  She came home every day with buckets of shells.  Me?  Not so much but I have managed to find a few sand dollars and shark eyes.  I just don’t have the patience or the back to bend over a pile of shells for hours looking for perfect shells.  Plus you have to get out before sunlight with a flashlight to get all the good ones and I would rather walk when I can enjoy the view around me and not just below me.

Today, I am showing you another card using the Stampin’ Up! bundle called Around The Bend.  This is a new stamp set that is in the 2023 January – April Mini Catalog.  The stamp set and the die set both have the same name (which is so much easier for us old folks who have trouble enough remembering one name, much less two).  Both the stamp set and the dies have images that bend (hence the name) and are fun to use.

To make this card I first layered a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper on a Granny Apple Green card base.  This pack of paper is so pretty with beautiful color combinations.  There are 48 sheets of double-sided designs (4 of each).  The best part is you can get this pack of paper for free during Sale-a-bration with an order of $100 (before tax and shipping).  Next, I used a 2.5″ x 4″ piece of Basic White card stock and stamped the two leaf images in Granny Apple Green ink on opposite corners.  Then, I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink.  Lastly, I cut out the flowers and the centers using So Saffron and Balmy Blue card stock and adhered them to the card using Dimensionals.  I love the way the dies cut out the shapes as well as add some embossing.  I layered that onto a 2 5/8″ by 4 1/8″ piece of Granny Apple Green card stock and then the card base.
