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.

Righty Tighty – Guy Greetings from Stampin Up

Hello lovelies.

Righty Tighty GUY GREETINGS from Stampin Up – Day 3,

The gorgeous Guy Greetings from Stampin Up has really been a boost to my stamp sets.  I adore all the images and the great male sentiments.  This set has really inspired me to get creative and I hope that you guys are finding my creations inspiring.

As a teenager when I was learning to drive my Dad showed me how to change the wheel on my car.  I remember him telling an easy way to undo the nuts, “Rightly Tighty, Lefty Loosy!!”  It stuck with me for years and works for DIY as well as car maintenance.

Today’s card is the card I created for my Dad because this saying was so apt.

Using the gorgeous Typeset DSP – (Designer Series Paper) I created a gorgeous front to my card.  I sponged the edges of my DSP to a very vintage look to my card.  I loved the polaroid frame that I created for my card on Day 1, so I decided to use it again today.  First I stamped the main image and then on a second piece of cardstock I cut out the middle of the cardstock using the Square Framelits.   I raised the polaroid frame using frailest.  The sentiment was stamped onto a rectangle of cardstock, and then distressed before creating the banner end with my 1″ square punch.  I pleated some chevron ribbon down the front of the card and attached my banner on top of it.

Lastly I made a matching envelope from the same DSP stack.

Again Ive used the You’ve got this stamp set.  I am loving this. I have matted and layered my notecard and used Tip Top Taupe to stamp the flower.  I have used the background stamp to decorate the box, before fussy cutting a flower for the front.
