Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Birthday Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have plans this weekend? I’ll be at work both days, today at the dog bakery and tomorrow at the Ace. It’s suppose to be a beautiful fall weekend here.

I have a sneak peek for you today from the up coming January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. This bundle will be available to you starting November 3rd. This is one you might want to get your hands on. I went for a drive yesterday to my team leaders and the leaves were all changing and it was such a gorgeous drive. The only thing that would have made it better is if it wasn’t pouring rain. That inspired me to make today’s card. Here’s my card for today.

My sketch for today is from Freshly Made Sketches #457. Here is their sketch.

I played along with The Spot Challenge #132. Here is their theme.

I also played along with CAS on Friday Challenge #191. Their Theme is ‘PLAID’.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the curvy leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the leaves in using my Cajun Craze, Mango Melody and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the artwork on top of the plaid panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Quite Curvy stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Curvy Dies by lining up the top of the sentiment with the curve of the die and cutting. I then flipped the die and cut below the sentiment lining up the dies curve with the top curve the best that I could. I trimmed the sentiment down and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the curvy leaf image from the Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink towards the top of a Whisper White panel and colored the leaves in using my Cajun Craze, Mango Melody and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Quite Curvy stamp set below the leaves, matching the curve, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I adhered a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP to the front of the envelope.

I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. The Quite Curvy Bundle will be available for you to purchase November 3rd along with the Curvy Christmas and the Classic Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper. The Quite Curvy Bundle will be carrying over to the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, but the Curvy Christmas and DSP will only be available until January 4th. I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy the gorgeous Autumn weather. Happy Stamping!!
