STAMPIN' UP! VERY VINTAGE SYMPATHY CARD IN SOFT SEA FOAM

Soft Sea Foam is new to Stampin' Up!'s colour range.  It is a beautiful pale green, evoking thoughts of calm.  For this reason, I have used it on a sympathy card.  I have kept the colour palette very simply, pairing Soft Sea Foam with Very Vanilla.

Very Vintage, the stamp set that provided the gorgeous focal floral image, is available as a Stampin' Reward for any order over $250.

The gorgeous stitched shapes that contain the main image are from Stitched Seasons Framelits ... look out for them in August, when they'll be available to purchase as part of a special promotion.

I flagged the ends of my sentiment strip using the Tailored Tag punch - quick and easy, if you don't feel like using Paper Snips!




I have listed below all the current Stampin' Up! products used to make this card.  (The indicative value of Very Vintage shows, but you cannot purchase it unless you've earned Stampin' Rewards with a qualifying order.  The price of Stitched Seasons Framelits is shown, so you know what to expect when they become available for purchase in August.)  If you'd like to buy them for yourself, I would love for you to shop in my online store ... just click on any of the thumbnail images.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend, filled with things and people you love.

STAMPIN' UP! TROPICAL ESCAPE WITH DELICATE LACE EDGELITS

I haven't yet tired of playing with the Tropical Chic bundle of products!  Here's my latest creation, with a few extra pretty details, listed below the photo:




  • I used sponge daubers on the stamped flowers.  The top flower was inked in Blushing Bride ink, stamped off onto scrap paper, Blushing Bride ink daubed onto the flower centre, then stamped onto Whisper White card.  The other two flowers were also inked up in Blushing Bride, stamped off, then Blushing Bride ink sponged around the edges (rather than in the centre).  Sweet little Share What You Love Artisan Pearls finish off the flowers.
  • I have used the gorgeous new Silver & Petal Pink bakers twine.
  • Check out the beautiful Blushing Bride piece of card die-cut with with our new Delicate Lace edgelits.  I think the pattern really complements the tropical leaf shapes.
  • For the sentiment strip, I first inked the long rectangle stamp, from Thoughtful Banners, in Blushing Bride ink, stamped it off onto scrap paper, and stamped on Whisper White card.  I then stamped the sentiment and tiny arrows in full strength Blushing Bride ink, and flagged the end of the sentiment strip with my Paper Snips.  The sentiment mounted on a strip of  green striped Tropical Escape DSP stands out a bit more, than if I'd stuck it directly onto the Blushing Bride paper.
I hope you're feeling inspired to play with this suite of products.   The pretty colours and elements really make me happy.

Listed below are all the products I used to make this card.  If you would like to buy them for yourself, and you live in Australia, you can get to my online store by clicking on any of the thumbnail images below.  I would love for you to shop with me, if you don't already have your own Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

STAMPIN' UP! BEST ROUTE MASCULINE BIRTHDAY CARD

Have you seen that Stampin' Up! has an amazing Designer Series Paper promotion this month?  Buy three packs of select papers, and receive another pack for free!  I took advantage of the promotion, to add to my stash some of the beautiful papers on offer in our new Annual Catalogue.

The Best Route paper pack is an awesome option for masculine cards.  I've used it on a card for my nephew's birthday, and embellished with a few Best Route enamel shapes.



I've used four horizontal strips of Best Route DSP across the main panel of the card, so you can see the variety of patterns.  The numbers were cut (using the now-retired Large Numbers framelits) from another sheet of DSP, and adhered to Gray Granite card to reduce their flimsiness.

Listed below are all the current Stampin' Up! products used on this card.  If you click on any of the thumbnail images below, you will be taken direct to my online store.  You'll be able to see in my store, which papers are on offer in the "Buy 3, get one free" promotion.  It runs until 31st July.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  It felt good to make a masculine card, after all the pretty, flowery, cards I have been making lately!
