Sending Thoughts Card

Hello and welcome! Today, we are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project. You can do that here. Our theme for this highlight is Get Well soon – What a wonderful way to cheer someone up when they are feeling down.


I’m using the Sending Thoughts Stamp set and some of the beautiful Designer Series Paper called Succulent Garden from the Occasions Catalogue. The sentiment was framed using a couple of the dies from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. And, as you can see I’ve used the DSP to decorate the envelope and the inside of the card as well. It’s just so gorgeous, I couldn’t just stop at the card front!



Update 24 Feb 2017: I have added this card to this week’s Crazy Crafters Highlights. If you’d like to vote for my card, click here. Voting begins at 6:00pm AEST (7:00pm Daylight Saving Time). Note: voting has closed for the International Highlights, but you can still vote for me in this week’s Crazy Crafters (team) Highlights until Thursday 2 March 2017.

Thanks for visiting my blog today. If you’ve left me a comment, thank you! You’ve made my day. Make sure you head over to Kylie’s blog by clicking on the button below to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.

International Project Highlights – Love Theme

header

 

Welcome to our International Visual Blog Hop using current Stampin’ Up!® Products. We have all created this gallery of projects for you to be inspired by! We would love it if you could visit every one of our blogs and see a close up of our projects. Our theme this month is LOVE because as card makers we love spreading the love. You can see the gallery below and this will be on every blog that you click on so you will never be lost.

How many ways are there to say “I love you”? Well, there are lots, as you’ll see in the gallery below. Click on the images to go to each blog. You won’t want to miss any!

My CAS card uses the Crazy About You Stamp Set and two die sets – the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies from the Annual Catalogue and a brand new one I know you’re gonna love from the upcoming 2017 Occasions Catalogue, called Love Notes Framelits Dies.

By the way, if you don’t already have the Occasions Catalogue, you can order yours here. It starts on 4 January 2017 and I’ll be sending them out from December 1.

Back to my card. I die cut the heart and arrow from the Love Notes dies and the “love” from the Sunshine Wishes dies. I cut the arrow in half and adhered it to look as though it is piercing the heart and added a gold foil tip. The sentiment was layered up (5 layers) to add dimension, and both the heart and sentiment were slathered with my fine-tip glue to give a glossy finish. I also white heat embossed the “you” from the Crazy About You set onto Basic Black cardstock and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

International Project Highlights – Engagement Card

iph Welcome to our International Project Highlights visual blog hop using current Stampin’ Up!® Products. We have all created this gallery of projects for you to be inspired by! We would love it if you could visit every one of our blogs and see a close up of our projects. You can see the gallery below and this will be on every blog that you click on so you will never be lost.

international-project-highlights-1 I needed to make an engagement card and took inspiration from the amazingly talented Teneale Williams for this one. It has a simple, elegant feel, using Elegant Eggplant for the card base with silver accents. The focal point is the stacked heart. The top layer is Silver Glimmer paper but the layers underneath are cut from Whisper White and SMOTHERED in silver glitter on the edges. I love the 3D effect this technique gives.

international-project-highlights-2 I also kept the inside simple with a strip of Silver Glimmer and a row of hearts underneath the sentiment. Both sentiments were stamped with Elegant Eggplant and clear embossed. Thanks for visiting my blog today, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. We know that you will love our gallery of projects made by Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators around the world!
