I have been looking forward to casing this section for weeks as it has my favourite ever DSP in it!!
We are casing the Falling in Love section, pages 50-54 of the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.
I decided to case the card on the bottom of page 52. These thinlits are just so beautiful. I hadn’t actually used this floral piece prior to this card and I don’t know why I waited!!
Of course, my favourite paper, the Falling in Love DSP had to make an appearance!! I cut out the thinlits with the dsp and then selected one of the background sheets for the lower portion. I felt it need something to make it pop, so I used the Falling Petals embossing folder. I did put some Stella on the banner and on some of the little embossed hearts.
There are just so many pretty cards in this section that I couldn’t just stop with one! I also cased the gift bag on the right hand side on page 50.
I didn’t want to make a gift bag so I turned it into a card. I cut out the hearts banner from the thinlits and added some lace and gold ribbon for a pretty touch. I just got the Falling Flowers bundle so I had to use the framelits for the gold leaves and the pink pirouette flowers. I used the Beautiful You stamp set for the sentiment.
I’m really happy with how this one turned out!
Next up is my lovely sister line, Mel Pagano, who I get to see next weekend at Onstage in Sydney!!
Stampin’ Up! Product List
It’s been an exciting fortnight seeing all the amazing entries for the last colour challenge. Congratulations to the winners!!
I found the next challenge to be, well a little challenging! The combination this week is Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry, Delightful Dijon and Whisper White.
I went to my stash only to find that I had completely run out of Elegant Eggplant cardstock!! How does that happen!! So I turned to another purple instead, Wisteria Wonder.
I never really create a card with an end result in mind. I wanted to use the gorgeous So Detailed thinlits and of course, I knew the colours I was going to use. I decided to create a water coloured background with the three colours. I then cut out the thinlits in Delightful Dijon, and trimmed off the edges. I sponged the back in tombow glue and attached it to the watercoloured piece.
I love the Stitched Shape framelits and decided they would make a great feature for the sentiment, which comes from the So in Love stamp set. Did you know that you can get the So Detailed thinlits and the So in Love stamp set as a bundle and save 10%.
I can’t wait to see what you all create with this combo!
Next up is the very talented Liz Gross. You are going to love her card!!
