I love this new set. And I love what I have seen of the new catalog so far. The few sneak peaks people got that went to the cruise look fabulous. I can’t wait to own all those sets. When is August going to be here? I can’t wait!!! LOL


My card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Purely Pomegranate folded in half.

The black cardstock measures 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ followed by a 1/4″ smaller piece of the retired Uptown Designer Paper. The edges of the Designer Paper were paper pierced and part of of a 1″ black circle was taped to the top left. On top of that is a 1/2″ Pumpkin circle followed by an Ice Circle Rhinestone Brad.

The Soft Sky Prints designer paper measures 1 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, layered on a 1/8″ bigger piece of Basic Black cardstock. Striped Pumpkin Ribbon was tied around the top, the sentiment from Fresh Cuts stamped underneath the knot of the ribbon and the bottom edge was paper pierced.

For the main image I stamped the big background stamp from Fresh Cuts in Black Stazon on a 1 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ piece of Shimmery White cardstock. I colored it with Aqua Painter and Classic Inks (Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate, Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi) and layered it first on a Purely Pomegranate then on a scalloped black layer (cut with rectangle Nestabilities). The image was attached to the card with dimensionals.
