TECC49 Sweet Stems Preview

January 2nd, 2009

I mentioned yesterday that I received my Stampin’ Up! Demo pre-order earlier this week and I’ve been dying to dive into that box as well as play with my SASI stuff…so when I saw Taylor’s sketch for TECC49 I knew it was the perfect excuse chance to mount one the new SU sets and get it inky.



This is a very simple sweet card.  I modified the sketch just slightly by mounting the basic square layout to a hing top standard sized card.  My original intention was to tie a knot with a wide ribbon across the top, but I didn’t have anything in a coordinating color so I used the Bella’s Border wheel.  I can’t remember the last time I used a wheel, but I love it here.  I feel like a cheated a bit in the way I executed the layout.  Normally I would have cut the SU Parisian Summer dp into 4 squares and layered them onto the Perfect Plun square, but I took a little shortcut and mounted a full square of dp onto the Plum panel and then added 1/8″ strips of plum to create the look of smaller dp squares.  Super easy.  The flowers from Sweet Stems (available in the new SU catty mid January) were watercolored with inks from my pads and punched with the 1 1/4″ circle punch then layered onto Plum scallop circles created with a Marvy punch.  The one on the bottom right is popped up on a dimensional.  Stardust stickles were added for a bit of sparkle.

I hope you’ll play along with us in the TECC this week.  Get all the details on Taylor’s blog here (it’s at the bottom of the SASI New Release post).  And check out the samples from the Cupcake Crew:

      […] first project was a hinged card using Sweet Stems and Raspberry Tart dp – it was inspired by a card I made for TECC49 a couple of weeks […]
