Join Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up! sends out a bi-monthly newsletter to all its demonstrators across the world and it is packed full of crafting tips and ideas for projects. When I saw this card featured in our most recent magazine I couldn't resist making one myself to share with you.

Believe it or not the background is a piece of designer series paper from the 6 x 6" stack called Go Wild.  It's a good stack for those who suffer with the paper stroking disease as each sheet is repeated 4 times and at this size you can be brave and use at least one from each design and still have plenty to stroke!  The stunning rose is fussy cut from one of the sheets in the designer series paper pack called Birthday Bouquet along with the small blue flowers.  Just like my snow card yesterday I've used the fine tip glue to add small 'controlled' dots of glue and then sprinkled with fine glitter for a delicate touch of bling along with some gold thread.  The bold banner in watermelon wonder is enhanced with a little tone on tone stamping using the new Timeless Textures stamp set and the sentiment could be yours for free as part of the Botanicals for You saleabration stamp set.  Free when you order £45 of Stampin' Up! Stash from me.

Did you notice the little bit of detail at either end of the sentiment?  You can create little details like this by slipping your card stock in from above your punch rather than in it to just cut the part you want.  Here I used the washi punch and it just defines the end of that strip.

Hope your week has started out well.
