Sneak Peek – Oval Accents

By | May 22, 2012

Hi Stampin' Friends

Today's card showcases one of the new dies in the 2012/2013 Catalog called Bigz Clear Oval Accent  Die.   It coordinates with the new Forever with You Stamp Set (page 132 of the new catalog).

Like the framelits dies, it's clear so you can see where you are placing the die on the card stock.  For the background, I used the Everyday Enchante DSP from the Sale-a-bration Catalog with Poppy Parade Card Stock as the base card.   I love the Everyday Enchante DSP and so sorry it didn't make it into the big catalog like the Twitterpate DSP did (which I don't like!).  Though I think anything in the SAB catalog does not normally make it into the big catalog.

The rose is a retired Very Vanilla Accessory which was dyed using Poppy Parade Classic Reinker.  The Organdy ribbon is Calypso Coral also from the SAB catalog. 

Someone asked me recently how I dyed my ribbons.  I just mix reinkers and water in a small container and soak the ribbon until it's the color I want.  This morning I tried to color (with Poppy Parade) the rose, a small flower made from very vanilla satin ribbon and a small flower made from the Victoria Crochet Trim.  Below are the results:


Coming 1 June – stay tuned!
