SU Verdant Garden Card

Hello and welcome! Today I’m showcasing another Stamp Set that I feel gets overlooked – Verdant Garden. This card was created for a Global Design Project Challenge.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock and this is followed by a slightly smaller layer of Terracotta Tile cardstock. The main card front is a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, onto which I have stamped the tile pattern in Blueberry Bushel and Terracotta Tile ink.

I cut a window out of the centre of this layer using one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. The cardstock was then embossed using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment (which is from the Morning Star Stamp Set) is stamped in Terracotta Tile ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the next smallest Stitched Nested Labels Die. This is layered onto a piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock which has been cut out using the same Stitched Nested Label Die which was used to create the window in the card front.

A length of Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon is doubled over and adhered to the back of the sentiment piece using Tear & Tape. A small length of Blueberry Bushel Grosgrain Ribbon is then tied around this. The whole sentiment piece is then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

SU Stitched Stars Birthday Card

Hello and welcome! I’ve got a fun, bright, cheerful card for you today – just what we need right now! This is a card I created for a Colour INKspiration colour challenge. You can find out more about these challenges on the Facebook page. The colour combination for the challenge was: Daffodil Delight, Call Me Clover, Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo and Mango Melody – wow!

I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Stars Dies and Label Me Bold Stamp Set.

If you would prefer to watch me make the card simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Mango Melody cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Melon Mambo cardstock and a layer of Whisper White cardstock.

The Stitched Stars Dies are used to cut out a piece of cardstock in each of the challenge colours – Daffodil Delight, Call Me Clover, Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo and Mango Melody. These are all adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment from the Label Me Bold Stamp Set is stamped three times onto Whisper White cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The sentiments are cut out using Paper Snips and adhered to three of the stars using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What do you think? It’s a great colour combination, isn’t it?! If you have any questions or comments please leave them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com

SU Very Versailles Card

Hello and welcome! Have you ever noticed that there are certain stamp sets that get much less exposure than others but you’re not sure why?! For me, the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Stamp Set is one of these. I think it is absolutely beautiful but I never see many samples around on social media. Today I wanted to redress the balance a little bit!

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Petal Pink cardstock. The card base is stamped with the frame/mirror image in Petal Pink ink. Next I cut a smaller layer of Highland Heather cardstock and an even smaller layer of Whisper White cardstock.

Onto the Whisper White cardstock layer, I have applied Petal Pink ink through one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks using a Sponge Brayer. I have then stamped the script and foliage images in Highland Heather and Mint Macaron ink respectively.

I cut a notch out of the Whisper White layer using the 0.5″ Circle Punch before adhering it on to the Highland Heather layer using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I then punched a hole in the Highland Heather layer using a standard hole punch. Mint Macaron Twine is looped through the hole and secured in place using Silver Metallic Thread.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink onto Highland Heather cardstock and heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This is cut out using the Stitched Labels Dies and adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. This final touch is provided by a few Petal Pink Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

I love the way that this combination of subtle colours can make such a big impact!

Ornate Thanks Card

Hello and welcome! It’s about this time every year that I start delving into my stash of Designer Series Paper (DSP) to see what I have left. The new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue goes live in less than 2 months from now! Super exciting BUT DSP tends not to carry over from catalogue to catalogue, so, if there is something you really love stock up NOW!

One of the DSPs that I’ll miss most is the Noble Peacock Speciality DSP. Featuring Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive and Pretty Peacock, this foil-accented paper is so elegant.

To browse the Stampin’ Up! range of patterned papers, click here.

In today’s card I decided to team it with the equally elegant Ornate Thanks Stamp Set plus the Ornate Layers and Ornate Border Dies.

If you would prefer to watch me make the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Pretty Peacock cardstock. This is followed by a layer of the Noble Peacock DSP. I have cut a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock to the same length as the DSP layer and used one of the Ornate Border Dies to decorate the top and bottom. This is adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink onto Pretty Peacock cardstock and heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This sentiment piece is cut out using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. Another piece of the DSP is also die cut using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. These pieces are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What else could I use for the final touch on such an elegant card but the Pearl Basic Jewels?! Stunning!
