When I first saw the new Occasions Catalog that soon goes live on January 3rd, I was immediately drawn to the Waterfront stamp set. When I got my preorder, it's the first set that I inked! I love it! Here is the birthday card I made for my brother-in-law Sammy.
This card has several other new items that will be available soon. Read on!
The card base is Night of Navy measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Score and fold at 4 1/4.
The Very Vanilla layer is 4 x 5 1/4.
The new patterned paper is from the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper. It is cut at 2 1/4 x 5 1/4.
The focal point is stamped on Very Vanilla card stock. I used Tranquil Tide for the mountains. The mountains are stamped two times. I did make a mask before stamping the second time. Just stamp the mountain range near the top of a sticky note. Trim around the mountain and stick it on top of the mountain already stamped on the project. The Night of Navy water is stamped off before stamping on the project. The sun is Crushed Curry. Put the mask on the mountain before stamping the sun. The trees are Old Olive with a little Garden Green. The entire surface of the scene is covered in Wink of Stella. It's probably hard to see in the pictures.
Cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits. Cut a larger Night of Navy oval while you are at it for mounting the scene.
The words are cut from Night of Navy card stock. They are new, too. These are the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies. You can get them for free as a Sale-a-Bration item. This year Stampin' Up! has a few nicer items available with a $100 purchase. These framelits are part of that. SU has also told us that these framelits will be available in the next annual catalog, too. You are going to want these. Of course there are lots of items available with a $50 purchase!
Here is the inside of the card. The sentiment is from another new stamp set called Picture Perfect Birthday. Stamp the scene again. Cut out with the Layering Ovals.
It's so exciting to have new stuff! There's plenty of great stuff in the new catalogs coming. First, the new Occasions catalog and the Sale-a-Bration brochure. Both begin on January 3rd. I can't wait!
