Stampin Up Decoupage Bejewelled

Hi everyone.

Stampin Up Decoupage Bejewelled

Todays post is the last in the Dahlia Stamp set series.  The Stampin Up Decoupage Bejewelled card is a gorgeous card.  I really enjoyed making this one and fussy cutting the layers, to create something a little different.

As you can see I first stamped the background with Tip Top Taupe.  My layers are Very Vanilla, Delightful Dijon, and then Very Vanilla.  The Tip Top Taupe gives a great contast to the Delightful Dijon and just highlights the Stampin Up Decoupage Bejewelled Dahia.  I stamped this twice onto very vanilla, before fussy cutting both and then adding random Rhinestones all over the centre.

I stamped and punched out a sentiment using the washi tape punch using very vanilla and then punched a second washi tape in delightful dijon.  This was cut in half and layered behind the first one to give depth and add interest.  This was adhered to the centre of the inside of the card.

I hope you liked today’s post.

Don’t forget to check the clearance rack, there has been some wonderful new items added.  Also the weekly deals are pretty amazing at the moment.

Check back tomorrow for the start of my 5 days of Awesomely Artistic.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Oval Frames

Hey Hey Everyone.

STAMPIN UP BUTTERFLY BASICS OVAL FRAMES

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Oval Frames is day day 3 of my Stampin Up Butterfly Basics series.   Today I have combined it with Oval Frames and the new Brick wall embossing folder, and the itty bitty butterfly punch.

 

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Oval Frames

 

The base of my card is the lovely Old Olive.  One of my go to colours.  It goes with so many of our colours and always looks good.  To create my wall I have used Daffodil Delight and the new Brick Wall embossing folder.  I just love this folder, it gives such a great background and I have lots of ideas that I want to try with it.

I used two of my oval framelits to create the old olive frame.  I then stamped the gorgeous “cowslip” from the Butterfly Basics stamp set and used my Stamp ‘n’ Write markets and my blender pens to colour this image.

I then stamped the sentiment and the itty bitty butterflies (Again from the Butterfly basics Stamp Set) I punched these out and then punched out the sentiments using my  oval punches.

All the bits were layered and stuck using tombow and dimensionals.  I love how clean and fresh the colours are together.  What a lovely bright vibrant card to have on your mantle shelf.

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.

All the products used in creating this gorgeous card and envelope can be found on my online shop by clicking the link in the sidebar.
