Just this past week, I received my pre-order goodies from the upcoming 2015-2016 Stampin' Up catalog. I couldn't resist the ease of using one of the sneak peek sets called You Got This:
Oh how I adore the background image in this set! It's a fabulous cross-hatch pattern that is perfect for adding the look of texture to the background. I can't wait to experiment with it. For today's card though, I kept it pretty clean and simple stamping the background in three of the retiring in colors. These cards were so quick and easy, that I made three!
Over the background stamp I stamped this beautiful flower in Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. So pretty!
After embossing, the flower didn't stand out quite as much as I wanted so I colored the edges of the image with a coordinating Stampin' Write marker. I like that much better! This little sentiment is my favorite from the Another Thank You photopolymer set--I was happy to see that it is returning in the new catalog.
And we would be happy if you would return to The Paper Players to play along in our challenge this week. We always love to see what creativity pops up in the gallery! Just make sure to play along before the challenge ends on Friday May 22nd at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by today!
