I love all the new items in the Spring/Summer catalogue, but if I had to make a choice of my favourite it would have to be the ‘Beautiful You’ stamp set. In my last blog I shared the first card I had made with this set which I designed for my granddaughters 15th birthday.
Since then I have been making more cards with this stamp set and I would like to share my latest design which I feel has turned out very well.
Red and white are one of my favourite colour combinations so that was my challenge to make a card with these colours.
I started with WHISPER WHITE card stock which measured 21 cm x 14.5 (creased at 10.5 cm). I die cut the 6 hearts on the front of the card and then die cut the hearts on a scrap of REAL RED card stock.
I cut out the individual red hearts and glued them to the white hearts on the card front.
I stamped out the image I wanted and using my aqua paint brush and REAL RED ink pad I coloured the image and stamped out the reflection. I thought the red wasn’t dark enough so I went over the image again with CHERRY COBBLER ink. I was then pleased with the colour on the image.
Lastly I added the sentiment in CHERRY COBBLER ink on to WHISPER WHITE card stock and then die-cut the sentiment with oval STITCHED framelit which I backed with REAL RED card stock.
I added red jewels and small heart (from the LOVE NOTES framelits) to give more emphasis.
If you would like to make this card yourself you can order the materials I used from my online store – bluebelledesigns.stampinup.net (or you can order the new catalogue and see all the other great new Stampin Up products). Do contact me if you need any information about the card or products.
