Stamp Off Seasonal Layers Thinlits Challenge

Yippee Skippee, it's another play date with
Susan and Buffy.  I so enjoy our Fridays together,
where we challenge one another to use SU product.
This week, we are to use a new Framelit or Thinlit
on our challenge project.  Easy Peasy because the new
Stampin' Up! products include some outstanding
new Framelits and Thinlits!!

This one was a no-brainer for me.  I had to go with
the Seasonal Layers Thinlits on page 216.  Maybe it's
old age, but that adirondack chair, with lovely
branch and flowers all speak to me.  First, I sponged color on to Glossy White Cardstock (p 194).  I love this product because sponging can be a frustrating technique, 
but colors blend easily on Glossy paper. 
I stamped textures on to my background layer, 
with the Timeless Textures set on page 154.   

 Images from Seasonal Layers were run through the Big Shot, sponged, and glued down.  I didn't feel the need to add
a sentiment to the front of the card, as it would disrupt
the restful nature of the card front.
I'm so glad that you stopped by to check out our Friday
Stamp Off Challenge.  Now click on over to see the
wonderful projects on Buffy and Susan's Blogs.

Negative Daisy Punch

Another fun new product is the Daisy Punch, on page 206,
that coordinates with the Daisy Delight set on page 127.
In this example, I used the negative of the punched image
to create the focus, by layering it over the DSP from the Color Theory DSP pack on page 187.  I love this pack!

The other "sliver" of DSP comes from the 
Wood Textures Designer Series Paper stack on page 187.
These two paper stacks are so interesting!   Adding
a bit of wood to a card creates such interest.  Additionally,
it enhances the masculine aspect of any card 
(although girls like it, too).

The Old Olive and Early Espresso layers were run through
the Oh My Stars (p 210) Textured Impressions
Embossing Folder.  I find that it kind of coordinates
with the Daisy Punch.   The stars even have 8 points,
like the 8 petals of the daisy.

Happy Birthday Thinlits Die on DSP

The Happy Birthday Thinlits die on page 213, is a
pretty neat product.  It is large, so can be the feature on
a card. This enables you to rapidly create a birthday card.   It can be cut apart, to use either word (you'll
see this on a future card), or stacked up to create a
3-d impression.   In this example, I layered it on
retired DSP and added the sentiment from 
Thoughtful Banners on page 66.
