CTC283 – Trimming the Town DSP

I hope you have been having a great weekend. I’ve had an amazing one!! I was fortunate to be able to attend Stampin’ Up! Leader’s Summit which was meant to be in New Orleans, but sadly not to be. However it was done online and it was fabulous!! The training was fantastic and just what I needed. We also had networking sessions through Zoom and I was able to connect with fellow leader demonstrators in USA, UK and Europe. It did start at 4am, on Saturday and Sunday, so I’m feeling excited but weary now!!

We were also given an amazing gift of crystal wine glasses from Tiffany’s. So excited to receive my first blue box!!

So this week at CTC, we are casing the colours of the Trimming the Town DSP from the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue. The colours are Early Espresso, Misty Moonlight, Old Olive, Pool Party, Poppy Parade and Whisper White.

I’m afraid I have a confession…. I don’t really like this suite! Well, it’s ok but it’s not on my shopping list. I do like that the dies cut out the dsp.

So I wanted to create a card that wasn’t Christmassy. I kinda feel like Christmas is far away and I’m not ready to embrace it every week!!

I started from the bottom up and the base of my card is Early Espresso. I added a piece of Misty Moonlight dsp from the Trimming the Town DSP and mat it. I’ve just got the Celebration Labels dies (thanks, Judy for enabling me!!) so I cut out one in Pool Party and embossed it with the subtles embossing folder. I then cut out a peony from the Peony dies in Poppy Parade and Old Olive. Just a quick tip, if you want to make the petals darker, just colour it using a Stampin’ Blend!. Then it’s the same colour, just a different shade.

My sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Poppy Parade and I’ve used the new Banners Pick a Punch. I love me a good banner!!

I do love these peonies!! They look complicated but they are so easy to put together.

Next up is the lovely Tina.

We would love to see your creations using this colour combo so please share over on at our Facebook group.

Happy Stamping
