I hope I don’t forget anything today. Lol! I am still in a fog from this head cold I’ve been fighting since last Thursday night. Here goes…today I have for you the second of three designs featuring the Beautiful You Stamp Set and Falling In Love Designer Series Paper from the upcoming 2017 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog that goes live January 4, 2017. [Open…open…open only 5 more days.] Woohoo!
I love this stamp set with its variety of images, squiggle shapes and loads of sentiments to choose from. Today’s gold and champagne color palette is soft and dreamy. Then gold embossing on her dress and gold foil on the hat add the perfect touch of glamour that we like to aspire to. Lol!
BASE: The base starts with Very Vanilla layered with the Glimmery Branches design from Falling in Love Designer Series Paper wrapped with the fabulous 3/8″ Sale-a-Bration Gold Metallic Ribbon. [TIP: Make sure to wrap the ribbon around the Designer Series Paper before adhering to the base.]
GOLDEN LADY: I used a double layer of Vellum ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits Die Set to create the subtle backdrop. Stamp the image onto the top oval with StaZon ink. [TIP: Let dry for a minute so it doesn’t smear.] Next stamp it again onto Very Vanilla and (just the hat part) onto Gold Foil. Then stamp the larger squiggle shape onto the her dress in VersaMark ink and heat emboss in Gold. Guess what??? I did some major fussy cutting for the dress and hat. I know, I know……it just had to be done. [giggle]
SENTIMENT: The “Celebrate” and “In Style!” are also from the Beautiful You Stamp Set. They were stamped onto Very Vanilla with StaZon ink and fussy cut as well. I did pre-cut a strip and stamp the “in style”. These are then tucked behind the lady before adhering to the oval.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have a very Happy New Year! Stay safe and warm, and I’ll stamp with you in 2017.
