Sneak Peak: Fresh Cuts Stamps and Notes

On June 1st, Stampin' Up! will release a wonderful new special! A sneak peak into the Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book & Catalog, I've been fortunate enough to pre-order the set and 'play' with it for the past week!

So.. here are just a few cards I made with my new die-cut set... enjoy!

The first card is quite simply stamped... using Always Amethyst and Whisper White Cardstock. The small branch image is stamped in Always Amethyst Classic Ink along the outside edges of the card fold-over. The primary image is ONE stamp.. the main focus of this lovely set... Isn't it fun! The stamp set also includes the words "thank you" and "for you" in lovely scrolling letters. I've added some of the fabulous Bright Silver Hodgepodge Hardware that is in the min catalog, and is available thru the end of June.

This next cards uses the fabulous new Fresh Cuts Notes. The set of 15 4x4 notes are also available on June 1st and coordinate just beautifully with this stamp set. In this sample, I've stamped in Always Artichoke and added a so saffron stmped flower to the center. An Always Artichoke Stampin' Write Marker was also used to add faux stitching around the stamped flower image, and to enhance the
edges of the diecut card's flower center.
Add a so saffron background, and some always artichoke 1/4" grosgrain, and you have a wonderful note card or gift enclosure card!

The last card again uses the Fresh Cut Notes and Fresh Cut stamp set (already die cut for you!)... Always artichoke ink and ribbon, and an accent of Lavender Lace. This time, I also added some color to the card with my stippling brush, Lavendar Lace, and So saffron Ink... I'm very happy with this card.. hope you like it!

Pin It!
