As soon as I saw the curves in this week’s CAS(E) this sketch, I knew I had to play with the new Curvy Bundle. And, I mean, really new, because I just received my pre-order, and it isn’t available to customers until November 3rd. So, this is a “sneak peek” to whet your appetite.
The first thing I did was stamp the ivy from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I used a Sponge Dauber and Garden Green Ink for a quick coloring job. After coloring, I ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with its Curvy Die, and out came my beautiful ivy.
I knew it would look pretty against white, so I cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″), and embossed it with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder. This was layered on a Soft Sea Foam card base.
Next, I added more curves to the corner with another Curvy Die, and Soft Sea Foam Cardstock (4 ” X 5 1/4″). The die cut the paper in two pieces, and I glued the bottom half to the white, embossed, cardstock. I didn’t glue the cut-out edge, so the ivy could be tucked beneath it.
The sentiment is from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set, which I stamped in Garden Green Ink. The stamps are photopolymer, so they are bendable, and great for curves.
The last detail was the cute, little birds. I had a tough time stamping and cutting them, so I reversed the order, and they came out perfectly aligned. It worked, because the stamps are photopolymer, and you can see through them. There are three birds in the set, but I cut two from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, stamped them in Garden Green Ink, added a bit of color with a Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write, and attached them with Mini-Dimensionals.
Now you see the sketch that was my inspiration.
