Every now and then you just want something really fancy to jazz up an otherwise plain gift and in the new Stampin’ Up! 2018/2019 Annual Catalogue there’s a doozy. Of course as so often happens with these things the photo really doesn’t do it justice and you could very easily overlook it entirely.
So for today’s sneak peek project I want to introduce you to the new Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.
This project is so simple to make. I took a Mini Pizza Box and used Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) to attach a piece of the new Blueberry Bushel Card to the top, and then a strip from the new Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.
The ‘happy birthday’ sentiment comes from the Detailed with Love Stamp Set and was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White Card using Blueberry Bushel ink.
I used my Big Shot and Magnetic Platform to cut out the sentiment using a die from the Lakeside Framelits. The die is actually a little longer than you see in the photo but I simply cut the sentiment close-ish to one end and then moved the other end of the die closer to the other end of the sentiment and die-cut it again.
The die-cut sentiment was added to the top of the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals and a couple of Mint Macaron accents from the Faceted Dots pack were added.
Finally I tied a simple bow using a length of Whisper White 5/8″ Dotted Tulle (this will also be available in Very Vanilla) and fixed that to the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot. Job done.
Oh my goodness I can’t tell you how gorgeous this laser-cut paper is! It’s actually not paper, more like card and it comes in 12″ x 12″ sheets, with 8 sheets to a pack. Four of the sheets are designed in sections with 6 different panels sized to fit onto the front of a 3-1/2″ x 5″ notecard (simply cut them off the sheet), plus there’s various borders and edge pieces.
The other four 12″ x 12″ sheets have an all-over floral design that could be used as a background for a scrapbook page, or you could cut it up with Paper Snips to create smaller pieces for other projects.
All the sheets are white on one side and vanilla on the other, although you could easily add colour with an Aqua Painter, markers, sponges, sponge daubers, sponge brayers, pencils, etc.
I must say that this specialty paper is not only stunning it’s also very versatile, I have no doubt it will be a popular product, if customers can find it in the catalogue – hint, it ‘s at the top of page 189.
Tomorrow’s sneak peek is another product that could be easily overlooked in the new catalogue. I hope you’ll join me to find out more.
