I woke early this morning, probably because I am off to Amsterdam in a few days to attend the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Live event that will showcase all the new products that will be coming in the new Annual Catalogue in June. But I was not concerned, because it is GDP Day. then I remembered that now that we are in British Summer Time, the challenge would not be issued until an hour later. So I ran a couple of errands and then got started.
Well you will see that I went for Melon Mambo, which may not be much of a surprise to those of you who follow my ramblings at all regularly, as this runs a close second to my absolute favourite of Bermuda Bay (which I did try, but was not right for this particular project). I already knew I was going to use Touches of Texture, as I have been having lots of fun with that set stamping on my swaps for OnStage. I also know I wanted to use an embossing folder, so grabbed the Seaside one and turned it through 90 degrees to provide the vertical pattern. The washi tape is from the Watercolour Wishes Card Kit, the ribbon is the Melon Mambo 1/8″ stitched ribbon, and the sentiment is from Places You’ll Go.
Oh, and if you are wondering which die I used for the stamped layer, this is the Stitched Shapes Framelits, but ‘stretched’ to form a rectangle. The trick is careful positioning of the cutting plates and a little bit of washi tape to keep everything in place. I may have to think about a video on this; we will see.
I hope you like my project. If you want to give it a go, jump over to my online shop and grab the supplies listed below.
