This is my first card using the very sweet It Starts With Art Bundle and also the Heirloom Frames and Dies Bundle. Kind of a perfect match I think.

I started with a whisper White Card Base measuring 21cm x 14.8cm scored and folded in half. I then cut another piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 10cm x 14.4 cm and ran it through the subtle embossing folder.

I also used Whisper White cards stock to create the frame using the embossing folder and coordinating die.

I then stamped all the art supply images in Memento™ Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them in with either the Stampin' Blends or ink from the Classic Ink stamp pads and a blender pen. i Die cut each piece.

I stamped the sentiment in Coastal Cabana in Whisper White card stock the stamped the tag edges with the stamp and masked off one end at a time to create a wider label. Then fussy cut and used my new Stampin' Up!® Trimmer to create this bigger label. I really love the new Trimmer and I am sure that my customers who are waiting for it's release will too! It looks very similar to the old Trimmer but everything about it has been improved - you will be impressed!

Please contact me for details about its release to customers

I Popped the frame up with dimensionals on the 10cm x 14.4cm embossed piece and ran some Whisper White Bakers Twine around twice creating a bow on the right side of the card.

I positioned all the art supplies using dimensionals and glue. Then popped the sentiment up on top of the frame using dimensionals.

This certainly was a fun card to make and I really enjoy colouring with the Stampin' Blends and the blender pen.
