We participated in another Mystery Parts. This is where one of us sends some Stampin’ Up!® products to the others and we make cards out of them. The only rules are all the parts have to be Stampin’ Up!® products (retired or current) and we have to use all the products sent to us. We can add some of our own products if we wish.
These are the parts that Karin sent us this month:
I am not sure of the names of these products since they are all retired but they included a Very Vanilla card base, a piece of Rings Of Nature Designer Series Paper (that has leaves and acorns on the other side), a piece of Pretty Peacock card stock (I think that is the name) and a string of pink Baker’s Twine.
Here are the cards the other ladies made with these parts:
This is Karin’s card:
This is Laura’s card:
This is Char’s card:
This is Kim’s card:
Aren’t they all just beautiful!!??
Here is the card I made:
First of all, it is funny that we all used the leaf/acorn side of the Designer Series Paper. I remember this paper (although not the name of it) and I loved it when it was current.
I decided to use it with the Cottage Wreaths bundle that is in the 2022 July – December Mini Catalog. This bundle includes the stamp set as well as the Country Wreaths dies. The stamp set is a DisINKtie stamp set which means that each stamp creates different opacities in a single stamp which brings depth to the image. You can especially see how this works if you look at the acorn. The top of the acorn is darker than the bottom even though I only used one ink on it.
I stamped the wreath in Pretty Peacock ink (which is retired but still a favorite of mine) and cut it out using the coordinating die. Then I stamped the berries in Sweet Sorbet ink and the acorns in Soft Suede. I adhered the acorns and the berries to the wreath using Multipurpose Glue. I stamped the sentiment in the middle using Sweet Sorbet ink. Lastly, I decided to change the color of the Baker’s Twine by coloring it with a Sweet Sorbet Stampin Blends. That is one of the reasons I love Blends. You can color ribbon and embellishments using them.
Our next Mystery Parts challenge will be in December. I am looking forward to it. I love how each card comes out so differently even though we are using the same products.
