One year ago today we were in Lanzarote (part of the Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa) for our daughter’s wedding. It was such a lovely day albeit a little breezy with the wind coming off the ocean. So many amazing memories to cherish from our stay there, with walks along the beach and the volcanic landscape in the background. It hardly seems possible that a year has gone by since those celebrations.
When I sat down to create today’s simple Sunday project I was immediately drawn to one of the new In Colors, Seaside Spray. What else?
I began by using the new Pretty Peacock ink to stamp the sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set onto a piece of Whisper White Card. Then I mounted it onto Seaside Spray Card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow).
Next I cut a piece from the new Woven Threads Designer Series Paper (DSP). In order to coordinate with the sentiment layer I mounted this onto Seaside Spray Card too.
For my card base I chose Thick Whisper White Card to give a clean look to the finished project. I used liquid glue to attach my layered background and then added the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To complete the project I chose one of the small decorative images from the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set. First I used Pretty Peacock ink to stamp it in the centre of the flap on a Whisper White Medium Envelope.
Then I stamped the image in the centre near the top of a layer of Whisper White Card. Finally I fixed the layer inside the card base with liquid glue and my project was complete.
Well I did tell you it was a simple Sunday project.
The new Woven Threads 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper is very unassuming. It uses all 5 of the new 2019-2021 InColors; Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile.
The designs are subtle, with a vintage vibe, but as you can see from today’s project they’re definitely not grungy.
Here’s a sneak peek of all the designs in the Woven Threads DSP which you’ll be able to buy starting on Tuesday.
Tomorrow is a different kind of anniversary, so I’m off to see if my craft studio can inspire me.
Have a lovely Sunday, and I hope you’re able to find time for a little crafting therapy of your own.
