My Stampin' Up! Classes

Saturday, December 29, 2012

It's almost time to say Ciao, Baby! to another year

 
Today I'm saying Ciao, Baby! because that's the name of a cute new stamp set in the Spring Catalog that features images that fit perfectly into new, smaller scallop circle and curly label punches.
 


I made this card for color challenge #232 at Create with Connie and Mary,

2012 Create Thursday-012
and sketch challenge #273 at Mojo Monday. It uses new products from the 2013 Spring Catalog - an oval framelit, the oval chevron stamp from a new set called Oh, Hello, the 7/8" scallop circle punch, and a silver basics designer button. You're also getting a peek at one of the three satin ribbons that comes in a free pack with coordinating buttons for our Sale-a-Bration Event, which starts January 22.
 
 

The Whisper White, Pool Party and Silver Glimmer Paper made me think of a baby boy, so that's where my idea came from. I hope you like it!

 
The card measures 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" (folding in half). You might also notice I used the Chevron Embossing Folder to coordinate with the stamp.
 
Happy Stampin'!

I like how you combined the two challenges. I have to admit that I had to look up the word CIAO as I had no clue what it meant! Thanks for joining us at Create with Connie & Mary and Happy New Year!
