Inspired Countless Sayings

Have you tried any of the new Photopolymer stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! has been offering for almost a year now?  There have been a load of fun designs presented over the last few months.  One recent set I had to have as soon as it came out.  It’s called Countless Sayings.  Actually, there are two sets.  Countless Sayings 1 and Countless Sayings 2.  Now I wasn’t sure what I was going to make with them, but I loved the sentiments, the typography and the variety of sizes.

Well along came a post on the Stampin’ Up! blog and I just knew that I was going to have to CASE the idea of combining Countless Sayings and paper piecing.  So today I pulled out the Fresh Prints ( I keep thinking Fresh Prince) designer series paper stack that I received at Leadership. (You can get one from the Occasions catalog). The pack has a variety of prints. I wanted to see if I could make this one work.

Countless Sayings and Fresh Prints card

The color combination starts with a Burnt Brown Sugar card base. Next up is a layer of Coastal Cabana. The top layer is Whisper White that was stamped with “Love” inked with Burnt Brown Sugar. Isn’t the size wonderful? Then, I inked up “Love” again and stamped on my Fresh Prints paper. Time to pull out the paper snips and do some fussy cutting. Once the pieces were cut, I did some paper piecing over the image stamped on the Whisper White. The banners/flags were created using the Arrows embossing folder on a piece of Real Red cardstock. I trimmed pieces of the embossed cardstock to create the flags. Then, I finished with some Dimensionals under the Whisper White layer and three Basic Pearls along the right hand side.

Try this at home!  I used Countless Sayings 1 (#135892) for my card.  Get it here.
