The fourth Friday of the month has become a highlight on my calendar when I have the opportunity to get a little fancy with some of the most talented Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators around, well I guess that is why they are past or present Artisans in a blog hop called Fancy Friday. You may have arrived from Sylwia Schreck so you are already on the hop and already know that the team is sharing creations featuring our favourite Occasions catalogue product, that was kind of hard to decide on! I mean have you seen the current Occasions catalogue, it is one of the best Stampin’ Up! releases yet.
I decided to go with Forever Lovely bundle which is so easy to pass in the catalogue as at first look it may seem like it is a Valentines set and if you are me that turns me off straight away, it was not until I saw my Mum (and team member) using the Forever Lovely bundle in a class I was like “oh, mum that is lovely and I borrow it” I guess I should just order her a replacement at this point because I am keeping hers!
Mum suggested that I use the Stamparatus to line up the stamps and I agree it made it so easy, I used this card to make 20 of this card and I had the stamping done in under 20 minutes. I stamped the top image and turned the paper 180 degrees to stamp the second row of flowers. Using the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies I cut the floral detail on two pieces of Whisper White cardstock and placed them over the stamped detail, the ribbon not only looks fabulous but it is also hiding the join of the two layers.
I feel like I need to bring your attention to page 48 of the Occasions catalogue, a greeting stamp set called Strong and Beautiful I love it and I used it on this card, “To the woman who does it all with grace & wisdom”
Inside the card. The greeting is from the Forever Lovely stamp set, like the front I have stamped the splodge from Geared Up Garage. The leaves have been stamped direct to the paper, the flower has been cut using the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies.
Thank you for stopping by today, if you are in Australia and without a Demonstrator, I would love to gain your business. See below for the items I have used in this card.
