Stamp setAnd here's today's creation...

SpruceWith a closer peek....

Spruce cu

As you can see the designer paper used for today's card has a much more bold design that really catches your attention!  This would not be one that we'd use to stamp on directly as we did on Tuesday. Instead we used a crisp stitched Nested Essentials die and we popped it up on dimensionals. we also added the thin white border at the top and bottom of the designer paper to give it a bit of pizzaz.

We stamped the smaller leaf image in Shaded Spruce ink along side the greeting in black ink--we needed a bit of contrast between the two so switching to black did the trick

We embellished with the Shy Shamrock 2024-2026 In Color Shimmer Gems.  These cuties are a great enhancement because they are not quite as dark and the Spruce designer paper yet they are in great complementary color.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Stamping on Designer Paper Using You Are Beautiful Stamp Set

Today we're Stamping on Designer Paper Using You Are Beautiful Stamp Set.  This sweet set has a couple of simple images plus 4 great greetings!

Here's the stamp set--it's a new one in the annual catalog...

Stamp setThis is today's creation...

Daff

And a bit closer look....

Daff cuSometimes your fresh pallete looks great with a bit of interest in the background. For this card we selected a design that was an image but it stays in the background and doesn't over whelm what we are trying to create.

We used two of the Perennial Postage dies to create a fantastic frame for the designer paper and the cardstock.

We stamped the main image in a relatively dark color--Old Olive and the greeting in black ink. We chose these to make sure our stamping had sufficient contrast so it didn't get lost in the background image.

We added the Bloomin Pearls (gold) and a cute little brass butterfly to spice up the big picture. In addition a double twine bow "tied" it all together.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Stop by Thursday to see what we're creating with this set!

Creating a Double Background Using Sketched Plaid Stamp

Today we're Creating a Double Background Using Sketched Plaid Stamp. Tuesday we used this stamp & explained how to get 61 different colors using this technique. If you missed it check it out here... Click here to see Tuesday's card.

This is the stamp we're using this week...

Here's today's card with the double background...

Double  a bit closer...

Double cuIn this close up you see we used 2 ink colors...Bubble Bath &Fresh Freesia.  We inked the entire stamp with Freesia & stamped the cardstock. We washed it, inked up with Bubble Bath & re-stamped over the Freesia. We moved the stamp just slightly to the right a bit to be sure we stamped a separate image over the Freesia. What a lovely stunning background.

Todays design gives us unlimited combinations of color to create just about any combo you need for your background. Oue combo uses two inks that are close together in color, however, you can use colors that are very different for another unique look.

The Shaded Spruce stem is decorated with tiny flowers die cut from Petunia Pop Glimmer Paper.  This die is Stampin'Up!'s brain child--it's a long die with 8 flowers--you can cut all of them at one time! It's wonderful & well worth purchasing for a set of large & a set of small flowers. It's a brilliant way to cut small images.

We've added the sparkle to this card using the Faceted Iridescent gems--they capture a bit of freesia in their sparkle.. just a perfect coordination with the color set we used.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Stop by next week to see what we're creating then!

Peach cuThis gorgeous background is created using Peach Pie ink on Peach Pie cardstock...this design is wonderfully simple as it blends into the background without overwhelming the focal point. AND, as promised, you now can have a lovely designer paper in any of the 50 Stampin'Up! colors..in fact, it's really 61 since we have 2 In color families and the new Basic Beige.

We layered the stamped cardstock on a slightly contrasting Pumpkin Pie to bring a little border around the background.

The ribbon is the Iridescent Striped Trim...this ribbon not only adds sparkle but the striping threads reflect the gold and makes it a fantastic finish to the stems

Designing a Sweet Thinking of You Card with Hearts & Hugs Bundle in Peach Pie

 Today we're Designing a Sweet Thinking of You Card with Hearts & Hugs Bundle in Peach Pie. Tuesday we created a Thinking of You card that was appropriate for all ages...if you missed it check it out here..Click here to see Tuesday's card.

Here's that new Hearts & Hugs set we're using this week...

Thumbnail


Here's today's creation....

Peach

& a bit closer look...

Peach cu

You'll notice we're using 3 strips of the same color cardstock--that new Peach Pie--for our background...this gives a bit of extra interest rather than just a single layer.

The embossing folder is the new Dashing Designs--one of my favorites so you'll be seeing it frequently.  It's a kind of "all over" design that gives texture but doesn't jump off the card to dominate.

That absolutely sweet arc of hearts is accomplished with a single die and shows the under color of the layer beneath.  You could also die cut these hearts in another color (or colors) and inlay them to add more pizzazz to that effect,

The greeting forms a sort of flower-box base--we simply cut the same color carstock as used for the stems & leaves and then layered it over the grassy part of that die cut. We bumped it up with dimensionals to form the "box" appearance.

The flower centers are the dazzling new Iridescent facted gems! I suspect these will go out of stock soon with all the orders I've been placing for them. The nice part of this set of embellishments is that you get tons of the large and small ones so you can use them when making multiple cards and not run out.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.
