Trifecta: that seemed a pseudo-appropriate word to use today as I share my third swap card featuring sneak peek products AND because the Kentucky Derby is this weekend! Will you be watching?
Did you check out my other two sneak peek swap cards? I posted the first one here on Tuesday and the second one here on Wednesday. If you read all about the first card, I explained how I used my Layering Squares Framelits to make a rectangle. Again, it is 5 scallops taller than it is wide. I also cut my Whisper White focal point layer with my paper trimmer. I predict you'll be seeing LOTS more rectangles than squares on my cards in the days to come!
So...how many sneak peeks do you see here???
- Layering Squares Framelits
- Pun Intended Stamp Set (a host exclusive)
- Copper Embossing Powder
- Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape
I really wanted to incorporate the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper on this card, but I didn't have enough to make a stack of swaps. Well, the In Color Designer Series Paper Stacks were the perfect solution! I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" layer of Mint Macaron Polka Dot from the stack as the background.
I used two of the washi designs behind the focal point. And, because I can't seem to keep anything truly simple, I used a 3/16" wide strip of Mint Macaron Card Stock layered over the washi. But, NO, plain card stock wasn't enough! I paper pierced all along the Mint Macaron Card Stock so that it coordinated with the polka dots in the Designer Series Paper background.
The adorable "Edison Bulb" image comes from a super cute host set. Yup, that means you have to host a workshop/virtual party or place an order of $150 or more by yourself or with some friends. The set is adorable. Did you notice that the filament in the bulb says "love"? These bulbs are super trendy right now. In fact, we have them in several places throughout our home. I stamped the bulb image in Versamark and then heat embossed with the new Copper Embossing Powder. The copper coordinates perfectly with the copper foil dots on the washi! Can you see the shine on the top layer of washi? It's definitely more visible on the right side. To finish it off, I stamped the coordinating sentiment in Watermelon Wonder ink.
Stay tuned, over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing some of the swaps I received. I'll be sprinkling them throughout my posts of my own creations! Get ready! An amazing new catalog is about to be delivered to your doorstep very soon!
