Stampin' Up! Springtime Foils

Although Sale-A-Bration is over for another year, I have not used my DSP all up yet so I had to make another card with the Springtime Foils. I am doing this card when I host our card group Thursday. The technique is Polished Stone. I explained this technique here.


My card base is Sweet Sugarplum, which will be retiring this year so if you want it, click on this link and it'll get you some! The mat is Dapper Denim and it is also retiring...you already know the drill...this link!

Now we go on to the next mat...the Springtime Foils. If you REALLY like this DSP, I can sell you mine. I have one unopened package. The other package has been cut like this...


The sticky note measurements are correct except for the 1/2" x 4"...it should be 1 1/2" x 4". Once I cut it, I put it in a Stampin' Up Full-wide Stamp Case. I also colored a larger piece with my Blends (temporarily unavailable...hopefully back end of May) and put that inside.

I used the Pretty Label Punch to punch out a piece of, forgive me, VERY retired Sale-A-Bration 2016 Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper! I adhered it to the DSP with dimensionals. 

I stamped the Wood Words sentiment in Dapper Denim on a scrap of Very Vanilla. I used the 1 3/8" scallop punch to punch it out and sponged it with Dapper Denim. I adhered it to the (choke, cough, sputter, hanging head in shame) glimmer paper. For the bow, I didn't have Dapper Denim baker's twine so I used Whisper White Baker's Twine and dragged it through my Dapper Denim ink pad! Easy peasy and MESSY but oh so fun! I adhered it with a glue dot.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my card even if some of the items are no longer available! Like I said, if you REALLY want them, you can get anything you want at Karen's Stampin' Up restaurant!
