Stampin Up Fussy Cut Definitely Dahlia

Hey everyone

Stampin Up Fussy Cut Definitely Dahlia

Definitely Dahlia is fast becoming one of my favourite background stamps.  But it really doesn’t have to remain in the background.  Stampin Up fussy Cut Definitely Dahlia shows how versatile this background stamp is and how much it cry out to be the show stopper on any card.

How to create Stampin Up Fussy Cut Definitely Dahlia

I started off with very vanilla cardstock.  I love the subtle colour of this cardstock. Its not a harsh cream colour, but a beautiful summery colour which sets everyone one of the 48 Stampin Up Ink colours off perfectly.  It really is one of my favourite go-to card base colours.

I stamped two definitely dahlias in Cucumber Crush, but they were stamped off the cardstock to only give 3/4 of the image on each edge of the card.

I then fussy cut around these, but left a 1″ gap in the middle to join the two together.

Lastly I then stamped in Watermelon Wonder on another Very vanilla piece and completely fussy cut this piece.  I then added this to the front of the card using the dimensionals to give depth to the card.

I love the way the colours complement each other and how the shape of the card is so unique.

Guy Greetings from Stampin Up – Day 2

Hello lovelies,

Guy Greetings from Stampin Up Day 2

Welcome back to my Week of Guy Greetings from Stampin Up, created for you by Crunchie Crafts Lisa Cornwall.

Today’s card is a little different to yesterdays and is in the most beautiful pale blue you will ever find.  This card was a commission order and I really enjoyed working in the Soft Sky colour.  It works so well alongside Very Vanilla to give this really classy combination.

Don’t you just love these anchors?  The Guy Greetings set is just so versatile and the sentiments are just perfect for those special occasions in any man’s life.

 

On this card I have used the “You’re my Anchor” sentiment and added “Dad” at the bottom.  The main card was randomly stamped using soft sky ink and the anchor stamp.  The gorgeous wall was created using our new 6″ x 6″ embossing folder.  I then gently sponged the embossed piece of soft sky cardstock to create this really cute wall.  The two anchors were stamped onto very vanilla cardstock and then fussy cut using my Snips.  These little scissors are just perfect for fussy cutting this kind of shape.

Don’t forget that all the products used in this card can be purchased by pressing the Shop with Me button in the sidebar.

Papillion Potpourri Catalogue Casing

Morning lovelies.

How are you all today.    I am loving the new annual catalogue and there are so many great ideas that it is an ideal way to creative.  One of my favourite stamps has been carried forward and has been featured on page 107.  So I decided to get creative.

Casing the Catalogue in the New In-Colours.

I recreated this card using Tip Top Taupe as my base and then the other new colours, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron.

Here’s my take on the card.  I hope you like it.image

 

 

 

 

and whilst I was about it I decided that the inside of  my first card was so beautiful I would recreate it as a front………. so here’s card number 2.
