Over at the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge this week the theme is Love!💕
I have been playing with some new products from Stampin' Up!'s new Spring Summer Catalogue and the Sale-a-bration brochure which I thought would be perfect for this theme. I chose to put a twist on my card using this gorgeous Happy Wishes stamp set so that it's not a traditional kind of card such as Anniversary or Valentine's though it would be easy to do that with these stamps. Sometimes our best friends need a little love too!
The Sweet Soiree Speciality Designer Series Papers are just gorgeous! They are foiled in silver and are double sided with a card stock weight, perfect for cards, boxes and lots of different paper craft.
I have made my base from Pool Party card stock. A4 card, cut in half at 14.8 cm and scored at 10.5 cm. My layer of DSP is just half a cm smaller at 14.3 cm x 10 cm.
I have used a fabulous new stamp set called Happy Wishes to make my card. It is full of so many sentiments and so versatile. I particularly love the large words.
The best thing about it is that it is FREE with Saleabration!
The sentiment is stamped in Caypso Coral and Pool party to match. I have made two slightly different cards. Can you see how I embossed the "Best" in clear embossing powder over the Pool Party ink to make it pop a little?
This one is not embossed and I have changed the colour I have stamped the heart from Heart Happiness and used Pool Party ink. I like them both. Which is your favourite?
I have used the beautiful Shimmer Ribbon in Pool Party to match from the Stampin' Up! annual catalogue. We have such a gorgeous selection of ribbons to choose from. I have dotted a few of these lovely adhesive backed sequins too in Pool Party.
Watch my You Tube video to see how I made it and the stamps and papers I have used here.
