With the new catalog going live June 1st our local demonstrator group, lead by our fearless leader (Barb Brimhall – BZB Stampers) organized a “Stamp Together”. This gave us the chance to play with and test out loads of new items before purchasing them. Woohoo! Today’s designs from the Stamp Together feature the Label Me Pretty Bundle.
This Label Me Pretty Bundle set of cards were designed by yours truly……that’d be me. [smile] The stamp set and coordinating punch open up possibilities for a variety of designs by using just the stamp set, the punch or both together. My “clean & simple” design esthetic is front and center with these fun and bright designs. I must confess I didn’t think I was going to be a fan of the new In Color Lemon Lime Twist. OMGosh!!! I so take it back. As you can see I have fallen IN LOVE with this new In Color.
A few of the new items I chose to use in my designs where of course the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set, the Pretty Label Punch, the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack and the yummy Powder Pink 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon.
UPPER LEFT CARD: I went outside my usual card design box and created a rather fun “slide-out” card. It has a pocket that you slide the message into and includes a cute pull using the Pretty Label Punch and Powder Pink Ribbon. AND I added a layer to the pocket from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack in the new In Color, Lemon Lime Twist.
UPPER RIGHT CARD: This was my first design so of course it doesn’t include Flirty Flamingo in its color palette. Lol! I did incorporate a band of Silver Foil to add shine. [grin] In this design I added subtle texture by tearing the edges of the Lemon Lime Band. Next I used an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits and topped it with the Pretty Label Punch shape stamped with an image from the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set. I was feeling ornery and had them fussy cut the banner. [cheeky grin]
CENTER BOTTOM: I must say this is my favorite of the bunch. I LOVE the bright and cheery feeling I get when I look at it. It features the Pretty Label Punch and fabulous new In Colors Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink. [TIP: Rather then using a dark narrow layer to frame the bright colors I used white. It gives a totally different look and lighter feel. LOVE IT!] I also used the cool Stitched Shapes Framelits squares. These guys add a subtle faux stitched effect on the edges giving a nice finished look. Sweet!
[I was having a “woe is me” moment while designing these guys. I have something that I truly miss and want to share with you. There are times when I would LOVE to add a layer or two of textured cardstock. It adds just the perfect amount of subtle texture and takes a design to the next level. I so miss our coordinating textured cardstock……I’m just sayin’.] Okay, I’m done now and feel much better for having shared that with you. [smile]
I hope you have enjoyed this group of fun and bright designs featuring the Label Me Pretty Bundle. I also hope you enjoyed the variety of designs featuring loads of new items from the now live 2017-18 Annual Catalog. AND that you are inspired to get stamping and let your creativity flow.
