Welcome to your next stop on the Stampin’ Addicts Occasions Mini Blog Hop! I am so thrilled to have you drop by! Didn’t you love Twila’s use of the new Eat Chocolate set over at Stamp A Little Longer? I’ll completely understand if you need to go take a little chocolate break right now. My job today is to give you a bit of an accessories preview. I will be showing you the new Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the new Beveled Windowpanes, along with the new word set Say It Simply. I’ll start with two cards that show the beautiful framing capacity of the Framed Tulips Folder.
On the first card, I used the debossed side. I love that the embossing folder takes a basic card and simple layout and gives it a wow factor! The words from the Say It Simply set use a font that has a great deal of flexibility and the words are the perfect size. I finished it off with the new Baja Breeze Seam Binding (oh, yes…more colors of this lovely ribbon!) and a Crumb Cake button from the Neutrals pack.
Next is card that creates a more distinctive frame effect. I love how this stamp from Elements of Style has a tulip shape in the flowers. And yes, the frame is a square instead of the original rectangle. Cool, huh? I’ll give more details on that next week. Crumb Cake Seam Binding this time to finish the card.
You’ll have to see these Beveled Windowpanes in person to understand how really cool they are. They come in three different sizes and add such dimension. For the first card, I used another hostess set (Silhouette Sentiments) on a small rectangle cut to match the inner raised part of the Windowpane. I created a frame with the addition of a Baja Breeze piece cut to the same size as the full Windopane. This was layered on Daffodil Delight stock and attached using the Daffodil Delight 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon.
I fell in love with the Play Date DSP because of the feature of being able to highlight numbers. The little square Windowpane is conveniently the same size as the number so I just had to play with that! I added Pear Pizzazz ribbon to attach it and left the rest of the card basic to leave the focus on the number (the inside is a birthday sentiment, of course).
I hope you like my projects with the new accessories and don’t overlook Say It Simply. At $7.95, it is a must have! Next up is an Oh Sew Suite look at the In Stitches Wheel and Sweet Stitches DSP with Sara over at Lily’s Ink Pad. Thanks for stopping in and I hope to see you again soon!
