Stampin Up Awesome Gift

Hi lovelies

Stampin Up Awesome Gift

My class in July was using the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set.  I love this very versatile stamp set.  My Stampin Up Awesome Gift Card is part of the class.  (All classes are available by post)

In this months class we did resist embossing as one of the techniques.  Every month I make sure we do something different ….. sometimes we revisit techniques we used a long time ago, sometimes new ones and sometimes the class decide what they want to do the next month.  We’ve got shaker cards, accordian cards, resist embossing on vellum and watercoloring coming up in the next few months among other things.  Its going to be an exciting few classes.

Stampin Up Awesome Gift

How cute is this.  It measures approximately 2 1/2″ square.  I’ve used the new labels thinlet dies to create the matts.  The base is tip top taupe, and has been stamped with blackberry bliss.  I have heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then stamped and inked over the top.

The lovely dragonfly is from the Awesomely Artistic set and has been stamped in blackberry bliss and then fussy cut, before being added to the gift card with a glue dot.

Hope to see you again tomorrow for more using this lovely set.

Tip Top Taupe is one of the new 2015/17 In Colours.  Its a very versatile mushroom colour and blends wonderfully with all the neutral colours in our range.  Stampin up tip top taupe gets decoupaged shows just how great this colour is when teamed with great stamps like definitely dahlia and birthday blossoms.

How to create Stampin Up Tip Top Taupe gets decoupaged

Stampin Up Tip Top Taupe gets decoupagedHow cute is this lovely card.  Its made using our gorgeous notelets.  So immediately you’re onto a winner, your base card and your envelopes are all included in the pack and matching.  No having to rummage for a matching envelope anymore.

I used Tip Top Taupe cardstock to create a matt layer.  I stamped the inside of the card and also the whisper white layer with the lovely stamps from birthday blossoms and also the definitely dahlia stamp in the bottom lefthand corner.  The sentiment is from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set.

I then stamped the definitely dahlia stamp a second time on another piece of cardstock.  I fussy cut this one to match how it fitted onto my stamped top layer.  This was adhered with dimensional to give some depth and character to the card.

I also stamped the back and front of the envelope to give a complete matching set.  Imagine giving friends and family sets of notelets like this as presents.  This would also make a great thank you card.  Quick and easy to do.
