It is always fun to get new products when a new Stampin’ Up Catalog comes out but it is hard to say goodbye to products that are going away. That is the case with the All Together 6×6 DSP. It and all the products in the All Together Collection (except the Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends Collection) are going away today (May 31.) So I had to use the paper one more time before it retired.
While I am also sad about the Here Together Stamp Set going away, I am excited about the Stronger Together Stamp Set in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. The images are striking and the sentiments are powerful.
I thought this would be a great opportunity to make a crossover gate card with the image at the top and the DSP at the bottom. I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Soft Sea Form and scored it at 2 1/8″ from each side. I then cut two pieces of Mango Melody – 2 1/2″ x 4″. Both the DSP and Basic White pieces are 2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″. I stamped the image on the Basic White with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with Stampin’ Blends. If you compare the two cards, I used the same colors but in different combinations. I used several of the Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends for the skin and the hair on the two women in the middle.
I am still getting used to the different shades and what combinations work. I would love to hear from you if you like the combinations. I also feel like something could have been added to the DSP panel. Please share your ideas in the comments.
