So In Love … Happy Anniversary

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared with you the “So In Love” bundle, what did you think? Pretty right!

Well today I’m going to share a simply beautiful card that I created using the “So In Love” bundle. I began with with the largest of the dies and knew I just wanted it to highlight my designer paper.

I knew I was going to use the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper so I chose the Very Vanilla cardstock as my base and cardstock to be die cut. I used the Precision Base Plate and die brush to cut and discard of the inner pieces with ease.

Next, I layered my designer paper onto my base, and then my die cut piece onto the designer paper.  I then added my “Happy Anniversary” greeting which I stamped in Crumb Cake on my banner.  I added the pretty little “Falling in Love” embellishment to anchor my banner and create and eye catching effect.

How simple, and how pretty is this.  You could use this card layout with so many of our pretty designer papers, and there are plenty more greetings to use in this stamp set.

Hope you enjoyed … Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Have an awesome day!

So In Love …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a quick post but it’s packed full of stampin’ tips and samples from the So In Love bundle. We’re going to start with a video …

Carrie, from the training team at Stampin’ Up!, shares some beautiful project ideas and tips for using the So in Love Stamp Set and So Detailed Thinlits Dies from the 2017 occasions catalog.

I also want to share some additional projects that were created with this fabulous bundle …

Here you can see the foliage stamp was used to create the background, then the flower was added to compliment the foliage and add some dimension.  A pretty bow and an banner with the “just for you” greeting completes this card. 

Look at the jar in the background … it was wrapped with one of the delicate bands created from the dies. Below the die cut band was used again to turn this simple bag into a beautiful gift bag.

If you love pretty, delicate items … this is the bundle for you.  I can image all sorts of beautiful cards and gift packages that you could make for Wedding’s, Anniversaries, Mother’s Day … or a special friend.

Watercolor Wash Resist …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share a beautiful card that I created using the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and coordinating Flourish Framelits … these can be bundled to save you 10%. Love that!! I’m also using an easy Watercolor Wash technique.

My color pallet consists of So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach and Whisper White. I heat embossed the flourish image onto our Watercolor paper using clear embossing powder. I used my ink pads and Aqua Painter to waterwash my So Saffron & Peekaboo Peach onto the watercolor paper. The embossed area resists the color and your image emerges.

000_3538

Once dry, I mounted it onto the So Saffron mat and mounted that onto the Peekaboo Peach base.  I then stamped my greeting from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set onto Whisper White and used the new “Layering Circles” Framelits to cut it out and mat with Peekabook Peach.

I then cut out two of the different flower shapes and backed them with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper so the “sparkle” would show through, and it does … and it’s so pretty! I added a rhinestone to the center of each of the flowers to complete the look. The greeting and the flowers were all popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Simple yet stunning … that is how I would describe this card. Hope you enjoyed!

Thank you for dropping by today.

Have yourself a wonderful Wednesday ~

New In Colors & Better Together …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared some sweet -n- simple cards that you can make with the new 2016-18 Stampin’ Up! In Colors and the Floral Affection Embossing Folder (set of 2), so today I thought I would “step it up” and create another set of cards using the other image in that set!

I also decided to feature the cardstock more on this card and use it for the base!

000_3443

Yesterday’s cards were all made without a greeting, so today I have incorporated the “Better Together” stamp set! 

I love this stamp set because it not only has your greeting but it has verses for the inside as well! On the card below I used the verse that would normally be on the inside and used it at my “greeting” …

000_3444

000_3442

Then, I took the greeting and stamped it on the inside of my card.  There are no rules in stamping so you can do it however you choose!

Now … have you noticed that I have been changing up the ribbon as well? I used it differently on each of the 5 cards!

000_3447

000_3446

Oh yes … all of these greetings come from the same stamp set (and includes the verse for the inside as well). The Sugarplum is the last of my cards … one in each of the new 5 In Colors and each with their own greeting!!

000_3448

I hope you enjoyed today’s showcase of cards and that it inspires you create. If you are looking for quick -n- easy cards to create that have a clean, pretty style, than today’s and yesterdays cards are for you.

I’d love to hear what “YOU” think about our new In Colors!  Just comment below 🙂

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Have a simply wonderful day!

Something Borrowed …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I have a beautiful card for you that is sweet and simple. Spring seems to bring about wedding plans, so we to must plan … our cards!

000_2122

I began with the beautiful “Something Borrowed” Designer Series paper, and teamed it with a Sahara Sand base and a pop of Pink Pirouette.

The pretty little trim was created with the “Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border” punch, and was topped off with a Whisper White strip. The simple greeting comes from the Stampin’ Up! “Your Perfect Day” stamp set.

000_2125

I love the new “Something Borrowed” embellishments and had to add it to this card. It ties in so well with the Designer Paper! I also added some Rhinestones and colored them all (including the Something Borrowed embellishment) with a pink sharpie.

Just because a card is simple in it’s design, does not mean it cannot be elegant!

Showcasing Embossing Folders with beautiful cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

So … what did you think about the cards I shared with you yesterday? Did you notice 2 new ones? Yes, I added two, never before seen cards!

Today I’d like to share the details of those cards with you. Let me start with the wedding card …

000_1967

I used the Beautifully Baroque folder on Pool Party card stock. The “doubled” butterfly is done with vellum paper and the new Butterfly Thinlits Dies. The addition of the pearls really makes the butterfly stand out.

The salutation comes from the stamp set “Big News” and was stamped in Pool Party.

The second card was the “Baby” card …

000_1970

This one is done in Pink Pirouette and Basic Gray and showcases the “Zig Zag” folder. The greeting comes from the “Celebrate Baby” stamp set. I love the combination of stamps that allow you to make many different types of baby cards.

I finished off the card by layering the flowers punched from the Boho Blossom punch.

Don’t forget … the folders are ON SALE through Monday, February 2nd. Click on any of the items below for more information.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hope you have a beautiful day ~
