Always Thinking of You | Pretty Cards and Paper International Blog Hop October

Hi Everyone and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Its Kylie here and Im taking part in a Blog Hop today which is featuring some of our FAVOURITE Stampin' Up! products - Designer Series Paper. And, this month, we are featuring selected paper from the August-December Mini Catalogue. One of the the collections is actually a returning favourite - Feels Like Frost. This collection is so beautiful - on one side there is Photographic imagery and the other side is hand-drawn design with silver foil. Here is the project (or should I say collection of projects) I created;

To make the card, I did the following;
  • I selected the DSP sheets I wanted to highlight (I made 7 total)
  • Using the Stitched Nested Dies, I cut out two of the frames in each colour (the same size).
  • For each of the cards, I selected a colour featured on the photographic side of the paper to determine the card base colour and the Ink Colour and the small sentiment piece.

  • I aligned the DSP on the front of the card and adhered - the off-cut from one of the pieces was used on the other side. I love how this looks on the solid cardstock.
  • The sentiment is from the 'Field of Flowers' set. I stamped the 'Always' sentiment using the same colour ink on Whisper White cardstock and using a smaller die from the same collection, I cut this out. I added some Metallic Mesh Ribbon and adhered this to the card base using dimensionals.
  • For this 'Thinking of You' portion of the sentiment, I stamped using Versamark or Memento Black onto cardstock and trimmed to suit. I adhered this piece with Mini-Dinensionals.
  • Finally, I added some Gilded Gems.

I really like how these were created so easily and yet look really beautiful! Thank you so much for stopping by today - as mentioned, this is a Blog Hop so please hop around to all the other participants and check out their projects.
