The first set I've been playing with is called Painter's Pallet; here's my first card:
I started with a Pacific Point base (4-1/4" x 11") and ran the front of the card through my Big Shot with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder (which I realize you can't see in this photo, but trust me, the polka dots are there!).
1. Stamped the easel from the stamp set using Chocolate Chip ink. Fussy cut the outside, and used the Layering Squares for the inside.
2. I lined up where I wanted my easel to be on the striped In Color Envelope Paper and cut again
3. I adhered my envelope paper to a layer of Cucumber Crush and cut again
4. I placed that (temporarily) on my card base and - yes - cut again!
Finally I added a piece of Window Sheet to the back of my envelope paper layer and used --be still my heart--Foam Adhesive Strips (coming soon!), added my Bights Sequins, and adhered another layer of Window Sheet, creating my shaker box.
Then I popped up the whole layer on my card front, just in the right place to be able to see the sentiment through the window.
So there you have it...your first Sneak Peek at some of the wonderful goodies coming your way in a few short weeks. In the meantime, don't forget to order anything you just can't live without from the Retiring List or the Occasions Catalog--these items will disappear as supplies run out!
Be sure to come back tomorrow when I have another card for you using the same Painter's Pallet set in an entirely different way!
Thanks for stopping by!
