Today I thought it would be fun to bring you a project featuring two new products from Stampin’ Up! After showing you a project a few days ago using Cinnamon Cider Card, today I’ve chosen Misty Moonlight. I also have an exciting new punch to show you too, but more of that later. I also want to show you another stamp set being retired by Stampin’ Up! and today it’s We’ll Walrus Be Friends.
MISTY MOONLIGHT BASE
I began my tag with a 2″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Misty Moonlight Card punched at the top with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch.
Next, using VersaMark ink I stamped the walrus and bird image from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends Stamp Set. I sprinkled the sticky ink with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and tapped off the excess. Then after removing some stray specks, I melted the rest of the powder with my Heat Tool set on 2 (high).
Once the embossing had cooled I coloured in the walrus using a Stampin’ Chalk Marker and let it dry. Then I went back and added more Stampin’ Chalk Marker to the walrus’ tusks. In fact I think I went back twice more to make the tusks as white as possible.
A NEW PUNCH
With the tag base complete I turned to the “It’s your birthday!” sentiment from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends Stamp Set.
On a 1/2″ strip of Thick Whisper White Card I stamped the sentiment using the new Misty Moonlight ink. Then I shaped the ends of the strip using the amazing new Lovely Label Pick A Punch.
This punch can accommodate 1/2″, 3/4″ and 1″ strips, AND there’s a choice of two different end styles. One gives a straight end and the other is more rounded. I decided to use the more rounded style for today’s project. The beauty of this punch is also that you can leave your sentiment strips any length you want. So now you have an option for all those narrow sentiments that were, until now, too long to punch out.
Once my sentiment strip was punched I attached it to the tag with a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I finished off with a couple of pieces of retiring Whisper White Baker’s Twine tied through the hole at the top.
Do you like the new Misty Moonlight colour? Compared to the retiring Blueberry Bushel in the photo above you can see it’s more muted with grey undertones. I think it will be very popular. What about you?
