It has been AGES since I took part in one of Kylie’s International Blog Highlights, and I’ve really missed it! I’m just recovering my full crafty mojo and blogging rhythm after having a (more than) pretty rough early pregnancy, moving house and Christmas, and so Kylie’s theme of Encouragement was just right up my street!
I am LOVING the Foil Sheets that are FREE during Sale-a-bration this year. You get 8 12×12″ sheets, 4 in Lovely Lipstick and 4 in Grapefruit Grove. It’s so pretty I can’t bring myself to cover it up, so here I’ve used it as part of the focal point of this card.
The card only uses 3 colours, because I really wanted that foil sheet to sing. So the whole card is just Lovely Lipstick, Basic Black and Whisper White.
The sentiment is taken from the stamp set Amazing Life, and it has been heat embossed in White onto a scrap of Basic Black. I love this look for cute little sentiments, it really makes the sentiment pop!
This card is finished with a bow in Lovely Lipstick ribbon and a trio of Glitter Enamel Dots
If you love this card, please would you pop over to Kylie’s blog and vote for me, and your other favourite Encouragement creations over on the Blog Highlight. Thank you so much.
I am so lucky to be part of a fabulous team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. This month we have 2 fun blog hops jam packed full of crafty ideas and inspiration for you all. Our first Pootlers blog hop of 2019 celebrates the launch of the Brand New Stampin’ Up! Spring Summer catalogue. I am so lucky to coordinate these lovely ladies, but even I haven’t seen their creations this time, so I am SO excited to see what they have all made!
One of the things I’ve been doing in my own crafting recently is trying to keep things simple, and when Stampin’ Up! make Designer Series Paper as pretty as this it becomes super easy! Here I have used the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper, and used the colours in it (Night of Navy and Balmy Blue) and my inspiration for the rest of the card.
The stamp on this card says everything, its taken from the new Amazing Life stamp set, which I was lucky enough to get for FREE at a Stampin’ Up! event back in November. I am So Happy to have Stampin’ Up! in my life, as well as the wonderful team of ladies (and gents) some of whom are taking part in the blog hop today. I can wax lyrical about the team, Stampin’ Up! events, the discount and more… but I’ll save you from that, and let you hop through the list of projects below!
