Sneak Peek Day 1

Here I am with the first of many sneak peeks from the new catalog!  Plus this cute little card is perfect for the following challenges:

Stampin' Royalty: Punches

This is from the new Hostess set called Four Seasons.  There are four great wreath & bird images for each season as well as coordinating stamps.  I used the flowers and inked up the stamps with Versamark before stamping onto the cardstock.  I used Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, & Calypso Coral inks to bring out the images.  I almost added a sentiment and then decided I liked the card without it.  The bird and the wreath were punched out and popped up with Dimensionals.  I'm going to make a set of these for my Grandma because she loves to write and is quite the bird fanatic! :)

Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Calypso Coral
Ink: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Versamark
Stamp set: Four Seasons
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Whisper White Organza Ribbon

Have a fab day!

I see this will be another set that grows on me... Super cute! Love the embossing with this set. I too love leaving a card sentiment-less until needed. Thanks for playing with us at HSS.
