More Work of Art Sneak Peeks

Happy Friday!  It's been a busy week here -- lots of baseball, plus the printed copies of the boys' school yearbooks arrived and needed to be sorted out!  Really proud of how the yearbooks turned out -- can't wait for the kids to see them -- though we still have a couple weeks to go on that!!!  The big reveal won't be until June 6th for the 5th graders!

Anyway, I have two more cards to share with you that I made using the Work of Art stamp set, which will be available when the new Stampin' Up! catalog goes live on June 2nd (not too much longer now!!!)  These cards incorporate pieces I showed you in my previous post here, and I used a similar layout for each of these cards as well as partial embossing with the Chevron Embossing Folder

Each of these cards combines a mix of retiring, current, and new products.  Specifically, each card features a retiring In Color -- Gumball Green card stock and ink on the flower card, and Midnight Muse card stock and stitched ribbon on the card adorned with the heart and sequins.  (By the way, don't miss out on the Retiring List Blow Out -- 25 to 50% off select retiring items from now until June 4th (or while supplies last)!!!)

Here's a close up of the focal piece (cut using one of the Chalk Talk Framelits) from each of these cards:

In this one, the flowers were stamped using another sneak peek stamp set, called Something to Say.  I used the coordinating flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (another sneak peek item) to cut the little Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie flower on the tag (that was also my first use of Blendabilities, which I just adore!!!  You'll be seeing more projects colored with those soon . . . ).  The finishing touch for this card is a bit of the Gold Baker's Twine.   

For the other card, I used the heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Pack to add a bright pop of pink (I think this is Primrose Petals, another retiring In Color).

Hoping to find some time to make more cards this weekend -- and hoping you do, too!

Thanks for visiting!
