Here are a couple of cards that I have made with the Whimiscal Words set. I just love the words used in this set!!
I’ve used the Hello Again Stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalogue on the Pink Passion strip. This is a really cute set that can be used for all sorts of occasions. I’ve also used the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper from the mini. This is a gorgeous paper which uses the Bold Brights colour range. I don’t use these often but this paper just matches perfectly (well, what would we expect from Stampin’ Up!!)
I’ve stamped the words onto Whisper White cardstock and then punched it out with the new 1 3/4″ circle punch and then created a Tempting Turquoise circle with the Circle Scissor Plus. I’ve layered it all together with whisper white 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon and done a bow to end it all off.
I am having a blitz on the pink flamingo designer series paper at the moment. It was included in the recent clearance sale and I’ve been using it a lot!!
I have used cameo coral cardstock as the base and inked cupcake standard wheel in the same colour for a lovely tone-on-tone effect. I used the wheel guide to help me out on the whisper white as I can’t go straight on my own (especially when it is for something important!!). I coloured the cakes with the Stampin’ Write markers (cameo coral, real red and summer sun) and added a touch of glitter with the two way glue pen and dazzling diamonds (now I dazzle as well!! and my craft table and my work top!!)
I then layered with summer sun cardstock and the pink flamingo dsp. I stamped onto whisper white using cameo coral ink and then punched it out using the 1 3/4″ circle punch. Couple of dimensions on the back and you’re set to go!!!
I love this stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue and it’s even better when it’s free!!! If you would like to earn this set for free, there are two ways you can do so.
