The inspiration for this project begins with two things: the sketch challenge at Fab Friday, and my new stash of Stampin’ Up! product delivered by UPS.
Searching for a circle in my newly delivered stash, I find a good one in the Chase Your Dreams die set. This will represent the doily. The set also has feathers, which I can hang from it. I’ve missed out on feathers from previous years, so this is one of my reasons for purchasing this bundle. Another reason is the word, “dream,” because I’m a lover of paper words!
Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper has the perfect color palette for the subject of dreams: Mint Macaron, Tranquil Tide and Balmy Blue. A Thick Whisper White card base will keep the look soft and dreamy.
The background for my card is staring me in the face; the new Bokeh Dots stamp set. I’m anxious to ink it up in Mint Macaron, and delightfully surprised by the results. When first seeing this stamp set in the catalog, I assumed it would cover an entire card front. Wrong! It’s the size of an ink pad.
TIP: The Stamparatus is used to center it, and make sure it stamps evenly.
The circle and feathers are die cut from Tranquil Textures DSP, and “dream” is die cut from Thick Whisper White. “Dream” has two layers for thickness.
The feathers are popped up on Mini-Dimensionals, and “tied together” with a Glitter Enamel Dot.
I hope you’re enjoying the new products as much as I am. You can scroll down to see what I used in this project. Clicking on the pictures takes you to my store for easy shopping.
