Fresh Cuts-a Fresh and Easy Idea

In June Stampin' Up! offered a Sneak Peek at a set from the upcoming Fall Idea Book and Catalog. I ordered the Fresh Cuts promotion with my last order. I was trying to wait to spend money on new sets from the new catalog when I became convinced that I HAD to have it from seeing samples on the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator website. Here are the ones I did:

These cards took less than an hour with interruptions as I welcomed the stampers and scrapbookers at the Pack 'n Play last Friday night in Green Bay. Added BONUS: the set is die cut! No more trimming stamps! I am way to impatient to trim stamps.

To create these cards, I used basic techniques to create a cool look:

TOP LEFT: I stamped Basic Brown with the brown stamp. I then used an aquapainter and a bashful blue watercolor crayon to create a wash over the top.

TOP RIGHT: I stamped the image in Almost Amythest and placed a 3 3/4 by 3 3/4 piece of Almost Amethyst on the inside to show through. I punched a 3/4 inch circle in Almost Amethyst to add dimension to the center.

BOTTOM LEFT: I stamped the image in Basic Brown, created a 3 3/4 by 3 3/4 piece of Summer Sun on the inside similar to the other card. I used my 5 petal flower punch in Old Olive to create a flower layer, and a blossom from the Boho Blossom punch for the center.

BOTTOM RIGHT: I used some Almost Amethyst prints paper for the inside matte. I used the small flower stamp to create the center. I also used the berry stamp to create the background of Almost Amethyst on white.

These cards are cute, easy and will be fun to send!
