SU Sneak Peek and DTDG

July 26th, 2008

It’s Saturday and the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges are continuing.  I had the pleasure of being a sample maker for Jen del Muro (genie1314 – the oh so fabulous creator of the Genie Bag) for her challenge today.  You can check it out in the Challenge Forum here.  For today’s card I was very excited to play with some of Stampin’ Up Sneak Peek stuff!


I couldn’t wait to dive into some of the new colors along with sets Dreams duJour and Fresh Cuts.  The Riding Hood Red card base is 5″ square.  The Kiwi panel appears to be a 4.5″ square, but I actually cut it into two pieces so that I could run it through my Cuttlebug to emboss the pattern.  The polka dot chocolate brown dp is from the new Bella Rosa (love it!).

I stamped the main image from Fresh Cuts on Pirrouette Pink with RHR ink and then cut it into four pieces and leyered them onto RHR mats.  For a little added touch I heat embossed each square with versamark and clear ep to give the effect of tiles.  The main image was stamped three times and watercolored and then carefully cut out and layered with foam tape (paper tole.)  I’ve always loved the look of paper tole and it’s really not hard.  closeup-paper-tole-jami-custom.jpgThis image was a little tedious to cut, but generally this is a pretty easy technique with a WOW result.  The final touches are olive grosgrain ribbon and Kaiser Craft chocolate pearls in two sizes.  I think this card very much represents my More is More style.  It’s not so much a matter of always adding *more stuff* – sometimes it’s just in the details of layering and texture like the CB embossed panel here and the clear heat embossed tiles along with the dimension of the paper tole on the focal image.


I hope you’re having a great weekend and have some time to stamp!  I plan to be back later today with some pictures of my tea adventures this week.  Please remember to check out the Midwest Flood Relief Non-Raffle on SCS and make a donation if you can.  Thanks for stopping by.
