Nature’s Thoughts and Positive Thoughts Stunning Greetings Card. I am loving the new Coordination Product Release from Stampin’ Up! There are six new items available to buy, while stocks last. The one I have selected to use today is the Nature’s Thoughts Die set that coordinates with the Positive Thoughts Stamp set from the Spring/Summer Mini Catalogue. I liked the stamps anyway, but with the dies as well, WOW! AND we have been told that the dies will be in the new Annual Catalogue, so it is pretty certain that the stamp set will be too. Buy them NOW and you qualify for a Sale-a-Bration item!!!
For today’s project I have chosen a really soft colour scheme. I have used Very Vanilla, Soft Seafoam and So Saffron, with the addition of quite a lot of gold elements. The mat in the middle of the card is die cut from the largest mat layer (after all, no one will know that the middle of the layer is missing except you and me!) I pulled in some of the Perennial Essence Vellum from the Annual Catalogue. One of the colours in the Suite is So Saffron, so it seemed a perfect addition. I heat embossed a couple of the ferns and cut one down before I layered them up.
The project needed some plainer elements, so I added one of the small leaf elements and a die cut and embossed feather, the final piece being the small butterfly in the top left corner. I wanted one element of real ‘bling’ so added the die cut ribbon using gold glimmer paper. That was pretty much it, other than adding some Gold Glimmer Dots (from the Christmas Time is Here Suite) and some Braided Linen. A sentiment on the inside and the project was finished.
