Delightfully Detailed with Stampin Up

Hi Everyone!  June is coming up soon and oh how you are going to love the goodies in the new catalog!  This is a great DSP!  It is laser cut paper, It is white on one side and vanilla on the other, both sides are gorgeous.

1.  This card is made with the new Petal Pink card stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded at 4 1/4.  Then the delightfully detailed laser cut DSP is cut at 4 1/4 aprox.  I did trim around some pieces if I didn't like the edge or wanted a flower cut out.  I made 20 of these cards for a swap, so some are completely covered and some are 80% covered.  I used the fine tip glue pen to  add glue to the back of these detailed pieces.
2.  1 x 4 1/4 Share what you love DSP has a piece of the new black cord wrapped around the middle of it and glued to bottom portion of the card.  I did use liquid glue for this just felt it was more secure, the cording is thicker than normal ribbon  and the laser cut paper isn't even.
3.  Punched out Petal Pink  and Black labels with the Pretty Label Punch.   Stamp your sentiment on the Pink Label with the memento black.  Then using Blushing Bride sponge on ink to label.  Cut the black labels in half and glue each half on the back of the pink label.
4.  Place label over the strip of DSP and cording.
5.  Using Fine tip glue pen,  I filled in the middle of flowers and little areas  throughout card.  The fine tip glue works great as glue, but it is also glossy and will make big and little drops.   You just have to give it plenty of time to dry.

  Here is a video on how I made this card.

Hold on to Hope

This card is meant to give inspiration.  Could be given for Easter or just   a  pick me up.  What ever the reason this set is beautiful year round.  this is a great card we made in my stamp club,  I hope you enjoy,  this set is carrying over in the new catalog, but if you want a discount you need to buy as bundle before May 31.

1.  Starting with Very Vanilla card base 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded 4 1/4.
2. Add layer of Early Expresso 4 x 5 1/4

4. Use big shot or you die cutting device and cut out, (in class you have the pieces). detailed cross in foil shadow cross, banner and largest stitched oval.  I have chosen to use wood texture dsp for the oval and shadow portions of the cross.
I also have added  adhesive paper to back of copper foil before cutting out.
5.  Layer the detailed cross on the shadow cross piece. Then decide if you want the flowers or the copper trim.  If you want the flower, then ink up the flower stamp with lemon lime and keep stamp face up and place die cut over it gently pressing it.  Then I used the 2017-2019 marker set to add color to the flowers over the green.  Place the flowers or trim  behind cross and secure.  Place cross on dimensionals and place on oval.  This goes on basket weave layer center toward top.
6.  Banner either ink up God is Love or Hold on to Hope in Early Expresso and stamp on Banner.  Stamp on Banner.  Attach banner to Card below oval with dimensionals.

Asian Brusho

These cards were inspired when my class was looking over swap cards I received in a leader swap.   I had cased this from a fellow team member, and Im sorry the name is missing from the card to give credit.  So after my attempts at playing with my newly acquired  brush, I tweeked the card some so here my versions.  My stamp class wanted to make these cards and I was hoping to make a video, but time has gotten away from me. I hope the instructions are enough.  the new catalog has brush so videos will be coming.  thanks.

1. Starts with whisper white base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded 4 1/4.  Depending on which card you prefer card will be horizontal or vertical.
2.  Spending on which card you want to make your layer will be island indigo or always artichoke at 4x 5 1/4. Place on front of folded card base.
3.  Time to play with some Brusho which is watercolor crystals.  So I played with these in a couple different ways.  For the technique I tapped the brush over a piece of shimmer paper 3 3/4 x 5. ( The key with brush is to not open lid.  Place thumb tac in top making 1 little hole, this way only  tiny amounts come out.  And  your brusho will last a long time. )  I then used stamping spritzers for a couple squirts dapped off with paper towel, then squirt again dapped off again.  Do this until you have the look you want.  I did not have to have any other brush.
4.  After you have the background look then take inked of choose, island indigo or always artichoke and a sponge robber or stamping sponge and sponge the edges of shimmer paper.
5. Choose Image from Artistically Asian  and stamp on background.   Wrap silver thread for island indigo card and old olive twine  around card.  You will be positioning sentiment later.  Secure to card base front.
6.  Stamp sentiment of choice from stamp set on 2 1/4 x 3/4 shimmer paper, layer this on glimmer paper 2 1/2 x 1.  Then position this on card front.
