A last goodbye to Pocket Silhouettes


As you are probably aware Stampin' Up! have their sale on just now along with items that are retiring.  Although it's sad to see favourite sets go it's also exciting to know they are making room for lots more new sets.  

Pocket Silhouettes is one of my Stampin' Up! favs so I don't think it will be disappearing off my shelf anytime soon.  

For my card today I've had two challenges in mind, firstly Less is More is looking for an Oval this week and secondly CASology would like to see sky. 

My immediate thought was a an oval aperture.  So I started with this, punching it out of Whisper White using my Extra Large Oval Punch.  Then I corner rounded my panel.  I had a little inky fun with my scene behind the oval.  I tore up some tissue paper and attached with repositional glue then sponged Bashful Blue and a touch of Not quite Navy before removing the tissue paper.  Hopefully this makes my sky look like it has some feathery clouds. I stamped my Pocket Silhouettes image in Night of Navy then added some Dazzling Details Silver Sparkle.  Have you spotted this in the Autumn/Winter catalogue?  It so easy to add glitter precisely where you want it.  My little scene was attached to a Bashful Blue card base. I wrapped linen thread around my aperture and added the panel with Dimensionals.  The little butterflies are Melon Mambo cut out with the Beautiful wings Embosslit Die.  A few Basic Rhinestones dresses them up.  The sentiment is from the same set and punched out with the word window punch and also attached with Dimensionals. 

If you like this stamp set too then please get in touch because items are selling out fast.  Also I still have 2 places left for my Stampers 6 Virtual Hostess Club starting in October.  So drop me an e mail to join in the fun. 

Thanks for popping in past today your visits are always appreciated. x

I guess it's an aperture, but I was going to call it a peek hole! What a clever idea! Love the colourful pops from the butterflies! So glad you played along with CASology this week!

This is fabulous Aileen - the aperture is a perfect way to display the image - almost like looking through a window. Love the little butterfly attached to one side.

Jenny said...

Snap! I managed to chalk these two challengs up together as well :0) Love the aperture idea and the larger butterfly to mirror the small one in the scene :0)
