I recieved my pre-order from the new Occasions Mini catalog last week. (One of my favorite perks of being a Stampin’ Up demonstrator is getting to not only see new items early but order them early as well!) As I looked at this week’s Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge, I decided the time was right to pull some out and play with them!
The more I turned this sketch over and over in my mind, I decided to take the shapes literally and use hearts. There is a funny story about how I picked the colors, though! I had just finished making holiday gifts for Eve’s teachers (I’ll post those later in the week), and had scraps of Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, and Melon Mambo lying next to each other. I looked at them lying there and thought to myself, wow, those look really good together! So here they are, together on a card.
Stamps: A Happy Heart
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo
Paper: Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo
Other: Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware, Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Big Shot
Both the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit and the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder are in the Occasions Mini Catalog and will be available starting January 5th. I noticed today, as I looked more closely at the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit, that those aren’t dots on it. Nope! They are little tiny hearts! How cute is that?
