Ying & Yang: Earthy & Feminine

Stampin' Up! Any Occasion stamp set, Carried Away DSP, Stampin' Studio

I’m getting such a kick out of the Any Occasions sale-a-bration stamp set.  You can build tiny little banners for…we… “any occasion”.  I am smitten by the tiny banners hanging along side the “hello” on the banner rope here.  Knowing I wanted to tie in the Carried Away Designer Series Paper and Sending Love Embellishment (the wooden heart) I chose to go with Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, and Watermelon Wonder.

How about a little ying and yang?  We’ve got earthy elements like the Linen Thread and the wooden Sending Love Embellishments and the feminine elements like the Very Vanilla Lace Trim, the pearls and the Watermelon stamped heart. I stamped some of the tiny banners full strength and some by stamping off once.  This gives us shades of the same color for a little more interest.

Stampin’ Studio Tips

  • Coordination: Repeating elements is a great way to tie the elements of a card together.  Notice here we have the tiny stamped heart, the wooden heart embellishment, and the cardstock in the shape of a heart.  this was die cut with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits.
  • Tip:  Get your linen thread bows and the Sending Love Embellishments to stay on with Mini Glue Dots
  • Sizes: Very Vanilla card base is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″.  Crumb Cake cardstock is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Carried Away DSP is 4″ x 5-1/4″ and then cut on the diagonal.
