Hello friends. Today I'd like to showcase what I think is my favourite new punch in the Stampin' Up! 2020 Annual Catalogue, the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch, and the coordinating Posted for You stamp set (buy them together for a 10% discount using the links at the end of the post).
This is such a great bundle which is really reasonably priced ($54 for the stamp set and punch together). It's a great way to use up little scraps of patterned paper, and you can make mini works of art too.
I embossed the 'Love' image in whote embossing powder onto watercolour paper, and added a watercolour wash of Blushing Bride. When that was dry, I added in some additional colour in a slightly more concentrated shade of Blushing Bride, on the leaves, flower and letters. The fine water painter in the trio of painters was perfect for this task.
The sentiment and round postage stamp image are included in the Posted for You stamp set and have been stamped in Gray Granite to coordinate with the Peony Garden DSP. The small heart is die cut from the Trio of Tags dies.
You might also spy some cute little embellishments on there. I LOVE these new Elegant Faceted Gems. There are 3 colours in two sizes in the pack: clear, pearlescent white and petal pink. They are the perfect addition to elegant cards as the name implies. I love them so much I just ordered a bunch of these at my shared host code gifts for June customers.
