Well Dressed Card

Stamp Sets with traditionally masculine images are always popular and Well Dressed has been no different. This set is available to earn for FREE, with a qualifying spend, until 31st March 2020. Don’t miss out – this is a stamp set you’ll get out again and again.

If you’d like to watch me create this card (and maybe craft along), you can find the YouTube link at the end of this blog post.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Country Club DSP. The tie image is stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White cardstock. To achieve this repeated stamping, I used the Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus which allows a hinge-step technique.

The Stamparatus is a fabulous stamping platform which is great for those who struggle to achieve consistent results when stamping as well as enabling techniques such as this.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and is stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangles dies. A larger piece of Garden Green cardstock has also been cut out with one of the Stitched Rectangle dies and helps the colours in the DSP stand out. The sentiment piece is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post. Don’t forget to check out the Well Dressed stamp set while you can!

So Very Vellum Card

One of the products from the Sale-A-Bration 2nd Release is the So Very Vellum Speciality DSP. To read more about this promotion click here. The vellum is textured and comes as a pack of 6 sheets (12×12″) – 2 each of Pool Party, Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam. Don’t forget you can earn this product for FREE with a £45 spend between now and 31st March 2020.

The project I want to share with you today features the So Very Vellum DSP in Purple Posy. This card has a lovely shabby chic layered feel which makes it so tactile and beautiful.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a layer of the Purple Posy So Very Vellum DSP. This is adhered to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Be careful to place the glue in areas that will be covered up on your final card as it will show through the vellum. I have then torn the edges of a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and further ‘distressed’ it by screwing it up and straightening out again. This layer is adhered at an angle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I have then used Tear & Tape to adhere lengths of Purple Posy Scalloped Linen Ribbon and Whisper White Flax Ribbon. A piece of the vellum is cut out using one of the Stitched Label Dies and adhered on top of the ribbon. This is followed by a length of Linen Thread.

The sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration Sending You Thoughts stamp set and is stamped in Crumb Cake ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using another of the Stitched Label Dies and adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Final touches are provided by Gold Metallic Pearls and Purple Posy Faceted Dots.

Team Meeting Insight

Today I wanted to share an insight into our Stampin’ Up! Team Meetings. These are events that I look forward to every month. Not only is it a chance to catch up with friends but its such a source of inspiration and motivation – both in terms of creativity and business building.

Each month we give and receive swaps; we craft ‘make & takes’; we discuss business topics and chat over coffee. There is also time to recognise people’s achievements and one of the Team Members will give a demonstration.

Its great to come away with samples using Stampin’ Up! products that you don’t have and projects created in a different style to your own.

It’s wonderful to be a part of such a fabulous team. I always feel supported and I strive to improve my business for myself, but also for them. There is nothing like spending time with people who have similar interests and who are rooting for you to succeed.

If you think you would like to be a part of this you should consider joining my team. There is no better time than during the Sale-A-Bration promotion. Why not contact me and ask any questions you might have? You could be part of this wonderful community; build your own business or simply enjoy the other benefits (including DISCOUNTS!).
