Celebrate Card - 'Garden In Bloom' Meets New In Colours.

A simple card that says it ALL! A 'Celebrate' Card covers all bases from Birthday to Graduation to Any Achievement at all!

My Style Info
  • Loving the new 2015-2017 In Colours. They really make this card 'Pop!'
  • Add a little Sparkle - Silver Sequins brings just the right amount of bling and jazz up the card.
  • Add a sense of Elegance with Metal Rimmed Pearls - I've used the 2nd size of 3 sizes in the pack - they're perfect size for these flowers.
  • Wooden Elements are right on Trend - Expressions Natural Elements have 15 pieces per pack, 5 each of 'Celebrate', 'Thanks' and 'Congrats'.
  • I've set the main card piece up on 3D foam mounts aka Stampin' Dimensional.

FYI - Did you know that you can now get Whisper White Card Stock in a thicker size? It's great for card bases and the regular size is still perfect for stamping and matting. Ive used both here.

Stained Glass Technique Birthday Card.

Well, what a versatile Stamp Set 'You've Got This' has proved to be! And I really love the Stained Glass Technique. You get a lot of Lovely for little effort!
My Style Info
  • Make sure you use Vellum Card Stock for heat embossing. The 'normal' Vellum (thinner product) doesn't hold up as well.
  • I gave the Flower two coats with my Markers as it gave a deeper, richer colour.
  • Love the New 'Metal Rimmed Pearls'! They are flat backed and self adhesive and add just the right amount of Elegance! 
Stampin' Up! Products used in today's card:
  •  The Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits have the perfect size to die cut the Vellum Flower piece, giving stylish curved corners which give a softer look.
  • You need a Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine for Framelits & Thinlets. For best results, try the Magnetic Platform. It makes die cutting a breeze!

        You've Got This

        As promised yesterday, here's another card I've made with the 'You've Got This' Stamp Set.

         

        **My Style Info**

        • I coloured the Flower with my Aqua Painter to give it a washed, watery look.
        • I've distressed and sponged all edges with Soft Suede.
        • Circles Collection Framelits have come to the rescue for cutting out the Flower and 'For You'
        • I've wrapped the lace all the way around the card and tied a bow. This makes your card much more interactive and adds to the receivers delight when they have to undo the bow to receive your greeting!
        • Just the right Touch - Three lovely Pearls in a row along bottom left hand corner and top right.
        • Touch of Class - The two Resin Flowers brings this whole card together!

        Here's a List of My Stampin' Up! Star Ingredients.

         

        Stamp Set: You've Got This, Tag Talk.
        Cardstock/Ink Pads/Markers: New 2015-2017 In Colours Cardstock and Pads Kit, Soft Suede.
        Papers: Cherry On Top Paper Stack

        I'm Here For You

        The new Annual Catalogue by Stampin' Up! is here and I love it! It was hard deciding what products to get first!

        The new 2015-2017 In Colours are bright & vibrant but also have soft tones,so they were a must have!
        Colours are: Delightful Dijon, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron,Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe. Mint Macaron hasn't showed up in this photo well, but you get a better idea of it on my card below.
        **TOP TIP**  I always purchase the In Colours Card Stock and Pad Kit because that way you get the Card Stock for FREE! (If you'd like to check this out it's on page 137 of the Catalogue). And then of course I purchase the In Colour Markers.

        First Stamp Set I bought is 'You've Got This.'

         


        And now - Here's my Card.

        **STYLE INFO**

        • Card Base is Watermelon Wonder and the Gold embossed Flower is on Mint Macaron.
        • I gold heat embossed the flower then coloured it with Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron and Cucumber Crush Markers. I love the Velvet look the markers give.
        • These beautiful Resin Flowers combined with the Gold Metal Buttons add just the right touch and class! Mini Glue Dots adhered Resin Flowers onto the Buttons, and then onto the lace. The top one I sat up on Stampin' Dimensional.

        HERE'S A LIST OF THE STAMPIN' UP! PRODUCTS USED TO CREATE THIS CARD.  

        Stamp Set: You've Got This
        Cardstock/Ink Pads/Markers: New 2015-2017 In Colours Cardstock and Pads Kit, In Colour Stampin' Write Markers, Whisper White.
        Papers: Cherry On Top Paper Stack
        Accessories: In Colour Resin Flowers, Gold Metal Buttons, Tip Top Taupe Lace.
        Tools: Heat Gun, Gold Embossing Powder.
        Adhesives: Mini Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin' Dimensionals
