Stampin' Up! Elegantly Said

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to my blog.

Welcome to Friday! We are almost at the end of the first week of school holidays. 1 week to go! LOL

Gosh, I haven't done a pink and grey colour combo in such a long time. I forgot how well they go together. On today's card, I have used the Elegantly Said stamp set. I started with stamping that gorgeous image in versamark and sprinkling it with white emboss powder then heat set it with my heat tool. Next I wrapped that, oh so pretty ribbon around. Now what to do with a sentiment. I used the smallest of that particular label die from Hippo & Friends Dies.


I have raised the blushing bride layer using foam adhesive sheets which I cut up into strips. I placed 3 on the back. I used a dimensional on either side of the ribbon to raise the sentiment.


I do love the white emboss powder on dark card stock. It makes the images stand out.


  
This is how I did the sentiment. I cut two of the label dies, one in blushing bride and the other in white. I cut the blushing bride one in half and adhered it behind the white so it was showing above and below. I wasn't worried that it didn't do the sides.


Card Measurements: Imperial
Base card - Basic Gray = 4 1/4" x 11" (score @ 5 1/2")
Layer 1 - Blushing Bride = 4" x 5 1/4"
Layer 2 - Basic Gray = 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
Basic White scrap: sentiment 

Card Measurements: Metric
Base card - Basic Gray = 10.5cm x 29cm (score @ 14.5cm)
Layer 1 - Blushing Bride = 10cm x 14cm
Layer 2 - Basic Gray = 9.7cm x 13.7cm
Basic White scrap: sentiment

I hope you like today's project. If you have any questions, let me know.

Stampin' Up! Whimsical Trees

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to my blog.


And welcome back to another Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. I hope you enjoy my project with this month's theme - Pick a Season.


Hmmmm, can you guess my season! 😆 Actually, here in Australia, Christmas is in the Summer time! So this is my green Christmas Tree forest. It reminds me of the Christmas tree farms that sell the trees. As we are coming into summer, I thought it appropriate. Plus, I had Christmas on my mind as I participated in the Whimsy & Wonder stamp camp last weekend with a great bunch of ladies and this tree stamp from the Suite, would not get out of my head - so here it is! This card is inspired by Sara Sayers - UK Demo. I have stamped off (or 2nd generation stamping) to make the lighter shade. Added some of the Specialty DSP (also from the Suite), tied a double bow using the Simply Elegant Trim in silver and the sentiment I cut out the 'Christmas Cheer' from the Whimsical Trees stamp set. The actual sentiment is 4 lines. I also added the white scallop from Scalloped Contours Dies.


I couldn't resist and added some wink of stella to the darker stamped tree with the rhinestone (not that you can see it). To adhere the silver trim, I used a mini glue dot. I added the shaded spruce strip to neaten things up and raised the sentiment by cutting a small sliver of the edge of a dimensional sheet. That basic white sentiment piece is just under 0.5cm. Everything except the sentiment is adhere directly to the card base.

Base card - Shaded Spruce = 4 1/4" x 11" (score @ 5 1/2")
Layer 1 - Basic White = 4" x 5 1/4"

Layer 3 - Shaded Spruce = 4" x 1/4"
Layer 4 - Basic White Scallop = 4" x 1/2"
