Things I nearly missed

Every time I look at the Spring/Summer Seasonal Catalogue I see something new to add to my wish list.  One such item is the Designer Builder Brads (top of page 12). I will be using some of these in May's class but here is a card I made yesterday in my endeavour to use up some more of my scrap Designer Series Paper.


I added the Brad as a button to the banner.

 built the "button" up
This was yet another simple card to make (once I'd figured out the colour combination). The button is made from a piece of punched Calypso Coral with the brad mounted onto it and then a piece of Designer Series Paper punched out using the 1/2" circle punch. On top of this is one the epoxy domes that comes with the pack of 16 Designer Builder Brads.

Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp set - none
Card stock - Calypso Coral and So Saffron
Designer Series Paper - Tea for Two
Accessories : Designer Brad, 1-1/4" Scallop Circle and 1/2" Circle punches, Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches, Basic Rhinestones and Paper Snips

Tomorrow is the last day of April which means that we will be 1/3rd of the way through the year. It also means that we are another month closer to the new Annual Catalogue. Don't forget that Stampin' Up! have already announced their Colour Refresh so if one of the retiring colours (there are 10 of them) is one of your favourites then now is the time to order as they are only available while stocks last. To check out what colours are retiring click on the Colour Refresh button at the top of the right hand side-bar.
