Today’s card is showcasing three products which are retiring, two of which are low in stock so if you want them don’t wait. These products are the Born to be Loved stamp set, the Bundle of Joy Speciality DSP and the Sweet & Sassy Framelits which I’m surprised are retiring as I consider them a crafting staple.
Anyway here’s the card I came up, a very simple design which highlights these beautiful products.
I love the mix and Gold and Very Vanilla and think this card could work for many occasions including Weddings, Anniversaries, Engagements and new baby cards.
The heart stamp in the catalogue had the sentiment “Born to be Loved” on it which I didn’t want to use so I simply covered it up with some short strips of washi tape. I then inked the whole image with Versamark ink and then removed the washi carefully before stamping, leaving just the gorgeous border to be embossed.
I also embossed the “Congratulations” in gold to match the rest of the colour scheme, this greeting came from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set, which I’m so pleased is staying around for the next catalogue as its one of my favourites.
Today’s card features one of the new hostess sets In the City. This photopolymer set is probably one of the biggest Stampin’ Up! has ever released with 60 stamps in it. It’s a great set where you can build all different kinds of building to create your own little city. The stamp that really jumped out at me when looking at this set is the little stork, its just so tiny and cute and really made me want to make a baby card, so here it is:
How cute is this card? Using the In the City set I created the little house scene, what I love most about this set is that most images have an outline and then a filler stamp. So the cute little stork’s bundle can be pink or blue or any colour you want.
The background paper comes from the Bundle of Love Specialty DSP and wow this paper is gorgeous, one side has patterns with Blushing Bride or Soft Sky paired with Very Vanilla. The other side is Very Vanilla with gold foiling, I knew this paper had some foiling but didn’t realise its every sheet! I love it!
I finished the card off with a bow made from the new Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon, this ribbon is lovely and the gold edge at the extra touch of luxury.
Remember the In the City stamp set is only available as a hostess set with an order over £150.00. With the new catalogue launching you are sure to have plenty on your wish list. If you can afford to splurge then for the month of June Stampin’ Up! is offering an extra £30.00 hostess credit on all orders over £300.00, thats at least £60.00 in freebies!
