One of the new products being offered in the new Summer Mini catalog is "Smooch Spritz". Offered in four colors, these are pearlized accent sprays that come in ready-to-use spray applicators. You can see the difference it imparts on this wedding card featuring the new stamp set, Blissful Bride, also available in a few short weeks. Below is the same card without Vanilla Shimmer Smooch:
There is no doubt in my mind that I will be "smooching" a lot this summer! And let us also bid a fond farewell to two of the colors that are slated for retirement as part of Stampin' Up!'s "Color Renovation", Pale Plum and Orchid Opulence. If you are a fan of these colors, be sure to stock up today!
The Stampin' Schach Tips:
- Feel like playing a little "Project Runway"? I did! I felt like a "designer" as I selected "material" from which to paper piece the gown's train and sash. I decided on the "Swirls" pattern from the Bridesmaid Designer Paper collection and Pale Plum. I could almost hear Tim Gunn in the background encouraging me to "Make it work!"
- Be a Hot Shot with your Big Shot! Zip that Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder through the Big Shot with Pale Plum card stock for tactile interest!
- Punch it up! The cute little flower on the sash is from the new Itty Bitty Shapes Punch set available in the Summer Mini. Isn't it sweet?
- Glitz and Glam! Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz is a quick and easy way to add instant sparkle to your projects. Whisper White Organza Ribbon and Lilac Circle Ice Brads add the perfect bling!
