I’m still shocked that we are already over halfway through the year! July is becoming a very fun and exciting month for me! I am working hard on a goal that I set for myself at the beginning of the year to become a Silver title. I am over halfway there thanks to all of you that have placed orders this year!
Stampin’ Up! has also some amazing things going on in July! We have a starter kit promotion and a designer series paper promotion! I will share more about that over on my promotions tab.
Last week I mentioned I wanted to highlight the new In-Colors this week. I had a Sincerely Yours, Card Class on June 21st where they got to create 6 cards using the new In-Colors. I will be sharing 3 of the cards this week.
Today’s project is simple to create and change up between colors. I started with a Thick Whisper White card base.
I then cut a piece of Pineapple Punch card stock at 4 1/4″ by 3″. Before I adhered that piece down I stamped this beautiful rose onto the Whisper White with Pineapple punch ink. I stamped it twice on the card base then one on an extra piece of Whisper White. I love yellow roses!!
The stamp set is called Healing Hugs. I knew I wanted this stamp set when I first saw! The rose and leaves are both DistINKtive stamps which are a type of stamp from Stampin’ Up! that are very detailed. They are amazing! We have a couple other DistINKtive stamps in the annual catalog.
I then adhered the Pineapple punch card stock down with liquid glue aka Tombow!
Next I added a strip of the Pineapple Punch designer series paper. I cut it at 4″ by 3/4″ and flagged the end. Adhere it down with some Tombow too.
Then I fussy cut around the rose leaving a little bit of white. This allows your eyes to focus on the rose instead of the actual cut outline. Also stamp the leaves onto a scrap of Whisper White with Tranquil Tide. Then fussy cut the leaves as well. Now that the rose and leaves are both cut out you will want to layer them onto the card using Sampin’ Dimensionals. I did add a glue dot to the top of the leaves so they would stay attached to the rose.
Now it’s time to work on the sentiment. The sentiment is from the same stamp set Healing Hugs. I stamped it in Tranquil Tide onto a piece of Whisper White and just trimmed it down to a rectangle and flagged the end. I adhered it with one Stampin’ Dimensional and some Tombow.
Last but not least it was time for some bling! I added the ribbon to the top of the card which I think added some beautiful texture. It is our new Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon. I tried it around the card and double knot it. This ribbon is also available in Very Vanilla.
I also added one rhinestone to the sentiment area. Don’t forget the easy way to add some extra bling… Wink of Stella! I added Wink of Stella to just the top rose.
This card is so beautiful, I’m not sure pictures does it justice. This might be my go to card for a little while for sending healing vibes!
I hope you enjoyed my card today. I shared this card on Ronda Wade’s Creative Convention as a virtual swap and Selene Kempton, another demo recreated it changing it up some. She added layers and a used Shaded Spruce instead of Tranquil Tide. She also embossed the bottom with the new Tufted embossing folder. I love her version. I was trying to keep mine simple for card class but this is a great way to step it up!
Below is the supplies I used to create this card. You can always switch out colors! This stamp set is a beautiful set because of the rose as well as the sentiments are perfect to send some happy mail to those not feeling well!
