Lovely Words Dies from Stampin’ Up!

I am sharing the fantastic new dies from Stampin Up called Lovely Words Thinlits.  They have a coordinating stamp set called Lovely Inside & Out and I was able to make this really striking card using these brand new products.

Lovely Words Thinlits Stampin Up

This week at the Global Design Project we have a sketch challenge, I have used quite a lot of artistic licence with this weeks sketch and we would love you to join us and share something you have made using this sketch too!


How I made my card

I tried to echo the diagonal background with the friend word from the Lovely Inside & Out co-ordinating stamp set.  I heat embossed the friend word using clear embossing powder.

I had to use a stamp a majig to get the word into diagonal lines.

I also cut 1cm strips of cardstock in 4 colours Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo and Pool Party and glued them to a piece of scrap cardstock to mount behind the die cut word.  I added the tied bow with black and white bakers twine.

We would really love you to pop over the Global Design Project to see what the other designers have made and also enter your own card for this weeks challenge.

Endless Wishes Christmas card using a sketch from Stamping&Blogging

I made a Christmas card with the new Endless Wishes set from Stampin’ Up!  It is an adorable snowflake stamp set with perfect interchangeable sentiments and it literally took minutes to put this card together!

I heat embossed the snowflakes using Pool Party, Silver and White Embossing powder and then added the All is Calm Washi tape and stamped the sentiment over the top in Black Stazon.

It is such a beautiful sunny Autumn day here today I struggled to photograph my sample and to really show you the colours of the embossing but perhaps this image is better….

It is so delicate, like real snowflakes!  I added a final flourish with some Frosted Sequins and added a rhinestone in the centre as I did not like seeing the little hole in the sequin.  A little fancy mounting and corner rounding and it was done….. I think I have found my Christmas card design for this year now all I need to do is make them.

Here is the sketch we used this week –
