Happy half-way-thru-the-weekend! Hope it’s going well. Our planting plans were thwarted by rain most of the day on Saturday. And I suspect we’ll be thwarted by eveything-is-soaking-wet-and-muddy today. So…another inside-work day for us, I’m guessing. Bleh. 😉
If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook live, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me. If not, but you’d like to check it out, here’s the replay on YouTube! 🙂
This card features a sneak peek at the new Beauty of Friendship stamp set with its bundled Beautiful Trees dies – with the Beauty of the Earth DSP taking center stage! You’ll be able to get all of it starting on 4 May when the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes live. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches this week!
I started with some of the Beauty of the Earth DSP that I cut for a card front – then I cut a smooth-side circle from the middle using a Layering Circles Die.
I matted the DSP panel on Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider mats using Liquid Glue.
I matted the DSP circle on scallop-edge die cuts – in Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider – from the Layering Circles dies. Then I added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
The Beautiful Trees dies has two rectangular dies for sentiments. I used the smaller one to cut a wood-grain piece of DSP from the Beauty of the Earth DSP.
I stamped the Beauty of Friendship sentiment in Cajun Craze on a piece of Basic White and cut it with the second rectangle die in the Beautiful Trees dies – then adhered it to the wood rectangle with Liquid Glue.
Now – my trim uses Crumb Cake and White Baker’s Twine from the brand new Baker’s Twine Combo Pack (it has FIVE rolls of twine!!). I cut about 16″ of each – two in Crumb Cake and one in White.
I tied them together in a knot and then braided it. When I got done – I used Glue Dots to adhere the “rope” in a figure-8 loop to the card front.
I added a few double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals right by the loops and used them to adhere my sentiment to the card front – and that was it!
On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Beauty of Friendship sentiment in Cajun Craze to a Basic White panel. In the corner, I stamped the tree trunk image in Early Espresso, added the smaller tree top in Cinnamon Cider (this is SUCH a cool image!). Then I used the little splotches image to stamp all over in Cajun Craze and Misty Moonlight.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider mat and then into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Beauty of Friendship tree on the front…
…and more of the wood-grain Beauty of the Earth DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! This Beauty of the Earth suite is so gorgeous – with the watercolor-inspired images in the DSP and the wonderful sentiments and trees in the Beauty of Friendship stamp set. And – I haven’t even really gotten busy with the Beautiful Trees dies!
I hope you like! And – if you love this set…check out my Special Bundle #2: It’s a Beautiful World Bundle.
