Stampin’ Up!: So Very Grateful

Published by under cards

One of the unexpected surprises in this year’s Occasions Catalogue is the stamp set called So Very Grateful.

I’ve seen some stunning projects created with it where the flowers really pop! Check out this one by the talented Sandi MacIver, this stunning card by Amy O’Neill, and this super-clever creation by Zoe Williams and shared on Wendy Lee’s site. Beautiful!

In today’s card I’ve used the large flower stamp from this set in a slightly different way. Instead of watercolouring the flowers, we have combined it with the Washi-Tape technique (aka painter’s tape technique) for a simple line art effect.

 So Very Grateful

We used the Stampin’ Up! ink colours of Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party and Crushed Curry.

Happy stamping!

I’m love-love-loving the trio of gold washi tapes in Stampin’ Up!’s current Occasions catalogue (p22).

You can’t go wrong with some of your fave washi tapes and a heartfelt message.

Published by under cards

HappNewYear_header

Happy New Year! So excited to welcome in 2014. It’s going to be a beauty!!!

Today I’m sharing a card I made for my December online store customers. It uses the new Stampin’ Up! Sweet Sayings Card & Envelope pack, which is available until January 27 only or while supplies last!

The cards have a good weight and a lovely printed border, but the rest of the front is plain –  ready for dressing up. And they are only $9.95 for a 12 pack – sweet!

 

Tip: Check back on the weekend for a free tutorial on using these Sweet Sayings cards to make a standing desk calendar. You’ll love it!

 

But for now, here is the ‘pictorial tutorial’ for our Happy New Year card so you can follow along. :)

Backyard Basics by Stampin' Up!Backyard Basics Birthday Card

Here we are back at the start of a new week. I hope you had a great weekend!

We took a visit to the zoo which was lots of fun…

Today’s card share continues the nature theme, and is especially sweet to create because of the matching Stampin’ Up! Backyard Basics bundle.

The bundle includes the stamp set and matching framelits to die cut the stamped images.

No hand cutting involved… LOVE that!

The card here was inspired by Kimberley Van Diepen and is on a Naturals White cardstock base, with a touch of the Epic Day This & That designer series paper.

Happy stamping,
