Today sees a sneak peek showcasing 2 lovely new stamp sets “Pop of Paradise” & “Thoughtful Banners” (lots of lovely words for all sorts of greetings) which has a matching Punch. Along with this gorgeous stamp set, I’ve used the matching “Pop of Pink” Speciality DSP. This is one of the perks about being a Demo, we get to have a sneak play before the release of any new Catalogue.
I’ve used the DSP to showcase our latest Pretty Pattern Papers for May. Actually, it’s the same DSP we’ve used for May, but in a different way. If you haven’t purchased your Tutorial, be sure to click on the Page to do so or to find out more information.

Our card today is the 2nd one we did in our class last month. Again, it is a very CAS – Clean & Simple Card, but one I am happy with.
I stamped the Globe Image onto a scrap of Very vanilla CS in Memento Black prior to punching out with Extra-Large Oval Punch. I also punched a piece of Basic Black CS with the same Punch & adhered to the stamped piece but just showing a small amount of Black down 1 side.
A piece of Crumb Cake DSP from the Neutrals Stack was layered onto a piece of Basic Black CS before a strip of Basic Black CS was adhered across the middle. The punched Ovals were adhered to the DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped “Happy Birthday” from “Crazy About You” onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS, cut down to size, cut into a Banner Shape one end & adhered to the strip of Basic Black, tucking the end under the punched Ovals.
This piece was then adhered to the Base Card – Crumb Cake.
To finish the card, I adhered 3 Basic Back Candy Dots to the bottom right corner.
In one of my classes last month we created a couple of cards for Dad or for the male in your family. They were very simple cards, but they were meant to be this way. I think with male cards we tend to try & overthink them. It is best we keep them CAS – Clean & Simple.
I stamped the engine image from “Traveler” Stamp Set onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS using Memento Black Ink. The image from “Gorgeous Grunge” was stamped either side of the engine in Crumb Cake Ink.
“Happy Father’s Day” is from “Crazy About You” Stamp Set & is stamped direct onto the same card in Memento Black Ink.
I adhered a piece of Basic Black from the Neutrals DSP to the bottom of the card before layering onto a piece of Basic Black CS & then to the Base Card – Crumb Cake.
3 Basic Black Candy Dots were adhered to the bottom left hand corner of the card.
