Thank You Thinlit Card

As promised here’s another project made using the Share What You Love Suite and the A Big Thank You Bundle. Today I’ve just used the Thank You Thinlit to make a card with no stamping, so if you need a thank you card quickly, this is the card for you.

I would never have thought to put Rich Razzleberry with Grapefruit Grove but seeing them together in the Share What You Love Specaility DSP they really work. Thats why I love Stampin’ Up’s DSP whenever you’re stuck for a colour combination to work with just go and pull out some paper and you’ll soon find a great combination.

The flower on this card comes from another sheet of paper in this pack and was just fussy cut out and added with a Stampin’ Dimensional, I think it’s the perfect embellishment to finish this quick card.

Fantastic Foil Doily Card

I really do think the free Sale-A-Bration foil sheets are fantastic in both Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove, I can’t chose a favourite and I have stocked up on mulitple packs of this gorgeous foil.

For this card I was inspired by the sample in Spring/Summer catalogue on page 47 which used the large doily from the Doily Builder Framelits to create a background. I wanted to use the foil so chose black for my die-cut layer to give the foil the biggest wow factor and boy does it shine, I love the colour changes of this card so so much.

I didn’t want to add too much else to the card so used various circular dies to build up an area for the sentiment. For a final embellishment I added some of the Share What You Love pearls in Grapefruit Grove.

If you haven’t picked up any of this gorgeous foil yet and you’re in Europe then place a £45.00 order now and you can have a pack for free!

Rooted in Nature Card Trio

For today’s project I was attempting to make a one-layer card, something which I really struggle with. To create the band of stamping across the middle of the first card I masked off roughly a third of the card with masking tape. The background was created with sponged Petal Pink and the leaves were stamped in Grapefruit Grove and Cajun Craze.

This first card was the result of my third attempt at this technique, its definitely one I need more practise in as I found my tape stuck too much and ripped my first two attempts and this third one is a little crooked. To finish this card I embossed the sentiments in Copper embossing power. This is an close to my initial plan as I came today.

For this second card I just cut the good stamping away from my ripped edge and mounted onto a strip of Cajun Craze. I stamped the greeting in Cajun Craze and added a couple of Faceted Dots in Grapefruit Grove. this actually turned out to be my favourite card of the three.

The final used some dies…yes I can’t help myself, but this strip off stamping was a mess and now with the 3.5cm (1 7/16″) square dies you wouldn’t even know. Three squares mounted on the matching scalloped squares and a Cajun Craze sentiment and I’ve rescued my first attempt and made a third card.

Three cards is not bad for an afternoon’s play and shows you can turn even your messes into beautiful projects.

Thinking of You Card with Autumnal Stripes

To I’m stepping into autumn territory with this autumn themed thinking of you card.  It uses products from the Nature’s Poem Suite which is perfect for this time of year when summer is drawing to a close. Full of rich shades the Nature’s Poem DSP is my favourite autumn themed papers Stampin’ Up! have produced, I love the combination of browns, purples, dark greens highlighted with mint and grapefruit. This stripe paper is probably my least favourite in the pack so today I’ve challenged myself to use it.

For the focal point of my card I used the lovely tree slice stamp from Rooted in Nature and then after fussy cutting it out I embossed the greeting in copper.

Across the middle of the card I added a length of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle  anda length of the Grapefruit grove 1/8″ Mini Grosgrain Ribbon as I wanted to bring out the Grapefruit colour. To finish the card I added three of the Grapefruit Grove Faceted Dots, which I love.

Copper & Grapefruit Birthday Card

Just a quick post today to share this card with you. It’s show casing the Share What You Love paper which I haven’t pulled out in quite a while. I love how well this floral mixes with the copper, the paper has iridescent shimmer on it and is beautiful.

A couple of die cuts and a stamped greeting from the Stitched All around bundle and the card is finished. Sometimes all you need is some gorgeous paper and a greeting to make a great card.

Share What You Love Suite and Grapefruit Grove

For today’s card I’m showcasing products from the Share What You Love Suite in Grapefruit Grove, one of our new 2018-2020 In-Colours. As regular readers will know I’m not a huge fan of the orange/peach shades in our collection but Grapefruit Grove is lovely and currently my favourite of the new in-colours.

Most of these products come from the Gotta Have It All bundle, which I highly recommend anyone purchasing as this suite of products is just stunning in real-life.

I added a circle from the Stitched Shape Framelits as a base for my stamping. The leaves are done in second generation ink so you can see how lovely a lighter shade of this colour is. The doily was one of the new pearlescent ones turned over and inked with Grapefruit Grove, I think this gives the card a real pop.  The beautiful Artisan Pearls add the perfect finishing touch, I can see myself going through many packets of these.

Here’s a close-up of the card, I wish the photo showed the beautiful pearly shimmer on those fussy cut flowers.  Hope you enjoyed today’s project.
