Hi everybody! Welcome to my blog!
One of the best aspects of being a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator is all the friendships I have made. These friends inspire me, support me and can chat with me for long periods of time all about stamping and Stampin’ Up! products. When I went to OnStage in Sydney on the weekend I had some cards made and addressed to these friends. I had quite a lot of fun making them using the Believe You Can Hostess Stamp Set. These cards where inspired by a card that Stampin’ Up! CEO Sara Douglass made at OnStage April at Auckland.
[All supplies used in this project are linked to at the end of this post in the thumbnails. These are linked to my Stampin’ Up! online store. Thank you for supporting me. ]
Details of these cards:
- Card Base: Grapefruit Gove.
- Card Insert: Whisper White (10cm x 14.3 cm)
- Card Front: Whisper White (10cm x 14.3 cm) and 1″ strip longer than 10cm
- Stamp the floral chevron onto the 1″ strip – I used Grapefruit Grove. The stamp is photopolymer and it is easy to see where to line up the next one. Once you have stamped approximately 6 of these stamp the hexagon sentiment “You Are The Best” in a darker coordinating colour – I used Terracotta Tile. Then stamp two more chevrons. Trip this to be 10cm wide.
- On the Whisper White card front stamp a mixture of the full and outline only flowers in the darker coordinating colour. Then add leaves in Granny Apple Green.
- Adhere the card front to the card base, add some Tear & Tape Adhesive to where the sentiment strip will go and add some Metallic Thread.
- Adhere the sentiment strip to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I had a lot of fun making these. I made them in a number of colour combinations:
- Grapefruit Grove and Terracotta Tile
- Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral
- Rococo Rose and Lovely Lipstick
- Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay
- Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape
And no card is complete with out stamping the inside and decorating the envelope:
Which is your favourite colour combination?
