Creating Another Lovely Card with Stampin'Up!'s New Lazy Days Stamps & Dies

Creating Easily with Stampin'Up! New Lazy Days Stamps & Dies

Today we're Creating Easily with Stampin'Up! New Lazy Days Stamps & Dies. We're all so excited to get our hands on the new products in Stampin'Up!'s new annual catalog...we hardly know where to begin. So I selected this awesome new set Lazy Days to begin our stamping journey through the new catalog:

Lazy days

One of the useful features of this set is that most of the images have dies to cut them out along with some additional dies that accesorize with out the's today's card...

& a bit closer...

Fence cuFor today's card we used the "fence" or "railing" die to form our base....we added the beautiful ivy or flower vine to add some interest. 

The hanging basket was easily colored with our Stampin'Blends...the ink from these markers makes us look like coloring pros with the smooth delivery of color.

Then we cut one more vine with Flirty Flamingo and cut off small pieces to decorate the hanging greenery and to add a bit of spicy color

Those classy little silver pearls are from the Festive Pearls originally appearing in the holiday mini last fall but carrying over into the new annual catalog---wahooo! Those are really super embellishments in four different colors.

All this loveliness is bedded on the Cane Weave folder embossing which adds that wonderful deep texture to the card.

Stop back by Thursday and see our next card with this set.
