Creative Crew Loving Thoughts Crushed Elegance

I was honoured to have been invited to join the Splitcoaststampers Stampin’ Up! Creative Crew Design Team for the period September to December 2013. Each month, there will be a number of projects which showcase particular colour families, stamp sets, techniques, etc. I will post my September projects over the next few days.

Here is the first one. The guidelines were: “CCREW0913DF – DSP/Color Focus: Our journey of self improvement begins with *Eastern Elegance designer papers* or the colours *crushed curry, coastal cabana, smoky slate and whisper white*.”

I started with a base of Whisper White and added a piece of Eastern Elegance DSP across the bottom half. A piece of Crushed Curry was embossed with the Pretty Print TIEF [in the new Holiday Catalogue] and added it to the top half of the card base. I used the ‘double scallop’ from the Tasteful Trim XL Bigz Die to cut out some Coastal Cabana card stock. This was placed across the join of the DSP and the embossed card stock and a strip of 1/8″ Silver Ribbon [in the new Holiday Catalogue] added across the middle of the double scallop piece. One of the negative pieces from the die cut was added along the bottom of the DSP. A sentiment from Loving Thoughts was stamped in Smoky Slate on Whisper White to complete the project.
