Today I’m casing the catalogue and sharing with you my simplified version of the Stampin’ Up! original found on page 97. I’ve pulled out my Stitched Stars dies as they haven’t seen any love in a while and paired them with the Playing With Patterns DSP.
The original card uses Silver Foil and embossing folders for texture as you can see below.
As you can see I kept to a blue base but used Night of Navy instead of Misty Moonlight and used Costal Cabana and Calypso Coral as my other colours. I left off the twine as I want a quick card which was easy to replicate for when you need those last minute birthday cards.
Today I’m sharing a card made with the Comfort & Hope stamp set, this is a great stamp set for adding little touches on cards as the images are all different textures and elements. My favourite stamp has to be the loops, I was a big fan of the Metallic Thread we used to carry but could never get my loops to look right, now I can just add this stamp onto the card.
To add some three dimensional texture I added one of the leaf flourishes from the Forever Flourishing Dies. I cut the leaves out of the Soft Sea Foam Velveteen paper, word of warning this stuff attracts dust like crazy some keep it wrapped up! To highlight the texture on the leaves I added a touch of Just Jade ink using a sponge duaber.
To finish the card I added the greeting Comfort and Hope stamped on a label of Mint Macaron cut from the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch.
Today I’m hopping again with my fellow Pootlers to share with you some of our favourite things from the new catalogue. So when you’ve had a look at my project please follow the links at the bottom to see the rest of the projects.
One of my favourite things in the new catalogue is the the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch , this is a great investment to your crafting supplies as it can make six different labels in one punch, how great is that!
This great punch is also available as a bundle with the Lovely You stamp set, which is the perfect mix of florals and sentiments, a winning combination in my book.
The punch creates labels which are 1/2″, 3/4″ and 1″ wide with two different edges, I’ve only used one edge in my projects today but have used all three widths. This first card also shows one of the new In-Colours, Magenta Madness. This is a bright pink and sadly my photos today don’t show it too well. The colours I’ve paired it with are Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay which I think work great with Magenta Madness.
This card shows all three sizes of the Lovely Labels Punch. You can also see one of the patterns from the new In-Colour DSP stacks and more Magenta Madness products with the 2020-2022 In-Colour Enamel Dots and some Twill Ribbon which is so soft.
Here’s both cards together, I can see both the punch and stamp set being used loads.
