Oh gosh! Only a couple more weeks until the new catalog goes LIVE on June 1st! I have a BIG wish list…how about you? But, Stampin’ Up! has given us a TASTE of the new catalog by allowing demos to preorder certain items! The theme for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary’s Saturday Blog Hop is our favorite new preorder product! Of course…I have MANY more than ONE favorite…all the new colors for sure! But, I do LOVE the new Rooted in Nature stamp set, so I went with that one.
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Mint Macaron cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White cardstock, the leaf was stamped with Pool Party at the top, then Mint Macaron, then Bermuda Bay and finally Shaded Spruce at the bottom. I thought these colors complemented each other VERY well and I liked the dark to light alternating contract!
- The You Are Wonderful greeting from Rooted in Nature was stamped with Memento Black Ink.
- A few Pool Party Adhesive Sequins and Rhinestones add a little JAZZ to the card.
I think it is pretty elegant for a simple card, don’t you? No designer paper, no framelits, just stamping! OK…make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team’s creations by continuing on with the blog hop…they will have some wonderful ideas! Next up is our Create with Connie & Mary website and then Mary Brown and her creative design!
