Yesterday I received some more new products from the Stampin’ Up! 2020/2021 Annual Catalogue. It wasn’t a large box by any means but suddenly I was spoiled for choice and I had no idea what to play with first. In the end I decided on the Lovely You Stamp Set, and a simple card layout.
LOVELY YOU – LOVELY LEAVES
My original plan was to use three stamps from the Lovely You Stamp Set to create a leafy bookmark. I cut a 2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Thick Very Vanilla Card and then set to work.
With three different leaf stamps I chose three different ink colours; Mossy Meadow, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz. Then I set to work stamping a random pattern on the card.
When I was done, instead of punching the top I realised it would make a lovely panel for a card. So that meant I needed to do a little more stamping.
Using the same stamps and ink pads I stamped a random design over the flap of a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. Then I did the same over a 1″ strip down the edge of a layer of Very Vanilla Card.
From my three greens I chose Mossy Meadow for my card base. After using my Paper Trimmer to cut and score the card, I folded it along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder. Then with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I fixed the Very Vanilla layer to the inside. More liquid glue was used to add 1/8″ strip of Old Olive Card along the edge of the stamping.
Next I mounted the stamped Very Vanilla strip onto a layer of Old Olive card using liquid glue. Then using Stampin’ Dimensionals I added the layers to the front of my card.
Finally I used Mossy Meadow ink to stamp the “wildly grateful” sentiment from the Lovely You Stamp Set onto a 1″ strip of Thick Very Vanilla Card.
It was no accident that I chose a 1″ strip, this meant I could use the new Lovely Label Pick A Punch to shape the ends. After punching both ends I attached the sentiment to my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and I was done.
