Simply Elegant in Copper

Hello Stampin’ Friends & Happy Saturday!!

Today I have a pretty card to share with you that I created using the Simply Elegant Suite! You can find this on pages 68 & 69 of the Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog (Let me know if you need one!) I give my customers a FREE Catalog each time they come out.

Let’s begin with our card base which is our Basic Gray … I then added one of the simple designs from the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer paper. This designer paper has Gold, Copper and/or Silver Foils … it’s just stunning!

I knew I wanted to use the designer paper with the beautiful flowers on … but just the flower, so I fussy cut one out! This was layered onto the pretty little tag punched from the coordinating Elegant Tag Punch (Part of the Bundle) also punched from the Basic Gray cardstock. It needed a bit more … so I added the Copper Foil but embossed it!

Look at the beautiful layers …

You can see that I used the Stampin’ Dimensionals to create a lot of depth to this card. To bring the silver in from my floral piece, I added the Silver Metallic Pearls … It adds a bit more texture to the surrounding “focal point” – the flower and draws your eye around the card.

A simple layout with beautiful results. Give this simple layout a try on your next card … each one will look different, depending on the punches, dies and designer paper you choose. And that my friends … is the fun part!!

Thank you for joining me today. Have a wonderful weekend!!

Simply Sunday: Love Stories

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

If you’re looking for a love story, then you’ll find one in today’s card featuring the beautiful Simply Elegant suite. The suite includes the Elegantly Said stamp set with coordinating Elegant Tag Punch, and the stunning Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Paper…. and I will be using all three.

We begin with this pretty pattern of designer paper in white and gold… so elegant. I matted this onto a piece of Gold Foil paper to really bring the gold out.

The card base is Basic White and our beautiful card front was mounted directly to it.

The next step was to create the greeting … This was done by stamping the verse with the VersaMark ink and then heat embossing with our Gold Embossing powder. The raised verse in Gold looks so elegant and pretty …

Next, our greeting was punched with the Elegant Tag punch on both ends. This is done by sliding the cardstock through the back of the punch. I added the Gold Pearls from the Metallic Pearls collection at each end of the punch.

Lastly, I popped up my greeting with the Stampin’ Dimensionals to create some depth and texture. A simple card to create yet so stunning!

I thank you for taking time out of your Sunday to visit with me, it is appreciated and I hope you enjoyed this simply elegant card with celebrates love stories.

Have a wonderful day ~
