Week 1

And here is what I did using the new set, High Five!  Isn’t it FUN!


Stampin' Up! High Five

I love the patriotic look and feel with the glittery stars and colors!  Here are the details:

  • The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Night of Navy, folded in half.
  • I added a 4 x 5 1/4  layer of Whisper White on top.
  • On the 3 3/4 x 5 layer of Real Red, I embossed it with the Large Polka Dots folder (hard to see in the photo!)
  • I wrapped the Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine around 4 times and adhered in the back, then added it to the front of the base card.
  • I cut a 1 1/4 x 5 strip of Maritime Designer Paper and cut a pointed end, then placed with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The oval dotted circle from High Five was stamped with Night of Navy on Whisper White and cut with the Oval Framelit.
  • I stamped High Five in the center with Real Red Ink, then placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Finally, I punched 4 glittery stars from Silver Glimmer Paper and added them to the oval and by the point of the DSP.

Lots of fun with this basic set!
