Stampin’ Up Flourishing Phrases with Hand Lettered Prose Dies

August 3, 2019

My daughter asked me for a card that was like “sending a hug” in the mail.
So…I did exactly what she asked me in the half hour before she wanted to pick it up…

When I made it, I die cut the hugs with the Hand Lettered Prose Dies and laid them on the panel I stamped with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. It was too flat so I thought of little pieces of dimensionals but that would be tedious and not very stable. So I put the die cut letters on some white fun foam I had. I just die cut the hugs out of the fun foam, used Tombow glue to attatch the DSP hugs, and then glued them to the panel:) It looks so good! Now, if Stampin’ Up had sheets of dimensionals we could cut out shapes…that would be awesome!

I forgot to snap a pic of the inside…a simple repeat of the flourish in the lower right corner:)

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Stampin’ Up Delicate Lace Edgelits with Flourishing Phrases

April 26, 2019

Hello, friends! I have another neat card for you using the Delicate Lace Edgelits
with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

Lace is just so timeless…I think this pattern is just plain enough to suit most tastes without being to “fru-fru,” don’t you think?

NOTE: I cut my Very Vanilla panel on the front pf the card  to 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ and then cut right next to the edge with the die. That way, I had a nice amount of Pear Pizzazz peeking through since it is cut to 4″ x 5-1/4.” I also ran the Very Vanilla panel through the Big Shot with the Subtle Embossing Folder AFTER I die cut it. It gives it such a polished look.

I carried the lace edgelit and ribbon over to the inside. I was pleased how it looked:)

NOTE: I cut the inside Very Vanilla panel to 4″ x 5-1/4″ so I had more room to write a message.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Stampin’ Up Sitting Pretty and Well Said Bundles

March 22, 2019

I played around with this card all day…determined to make a wedding card
using the bride and groom word thinlits from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Bundle.
I used a heart from the Stampin’ Up Be Mine Framelits behind the park bench.

I then added a Flirty Flamingo heart behind the silver embossed park bench
from the Stampin’ Up Sitting Pretty Bundle to see how  that looked…

Which one do you like best? The one with the pink heart or the one without?
Thanks in advance for your input!
