Stamp Off Cool Treats Sketch

Happy Stamp Off Friday!  Today Buffy, Susan and I
are working on a diagonal.
I like this challenge because it is easy to use a
rectangle shaped piece of DSP, cut it diagonally
and get to work.  I appreciate straight lines and "order".
 I grabbed my fav, Urban Underground Specialty
Designer Series Paper (DSP) and went to work.  
The Cool Treats set, with coordinating Frozen Treats
Framelits Dies (p32-3) made for an easy focal image.
I layered these components on a vanilla oval cut with
the Stitched Shapes die, layered on a Delightful Dijon
Layering Oval Framelit (p 193) piece.
After preliminary layering, I decided that I needed a bit 
of sparkle, so I added some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer 
paper.  Yes, you might note that I deviated from the
sketch in that I did not place the sentiment on the
diagonal.  I know that is ok with Susan and Buffy
because they are rebel women! 
 
So now please check out the wonderful ideas
presented by my friends, Buffy and Susan.
Given that they just attended a Stampin' Up! 
event and got their 
new 2017-18 catalogs, they may (or may not) be showing
previews of upcoming product.
The retirement list is out, so please check in with me
in order to get the "soon to be gone" goods!

Love your card, Jackie. I should have purchased that DSP. I love seeing everything you created with it.

Great card, Jackie! I love the urban underground DSP, and your creations with it have been so fun and creative. I would never have thought of pairing it with the Cool Treats - but it really works!

I love the diagonal strip of glimmer paper - it's perfect, Jackie! I think I should send you my Urban DSP, because you've made such great use of yours. :)
