Well, its still my Birthday week, so I’m still celebrating! My birthday and a catalogue launch in one week, busy times for me! but I love it!
This card uses a brand new stamp set from the Spring/Summer catalogue, Crazy about you. Before I get into the card I just want to mention this set, not only is a great set for sentiments and phrases, as well as three lovely floral images, but it comes bundledwith 3 thinlits dies – Hello You! I love it when Stampin’ Up! bundle stamps and dies (or stamps and DSP!) as it you save 15%! AND there is something even better about this stamp set! It comes in Wood Mount, Clear Mount AND Photopolymer! Awesome!
Onto the card….
I used a Melon Mambo card base today, with a Whisper White matt.
The leaves are from that lovely Crazy About You stamp set and are stamped in Pear Pizzazz (I think this is my favourite green!). I stamped the Birthday stamp in Pear Pizzazz on a scrap of Whisper White and cut it into a banner shape. Before layering it with a similarly cut scrap of Pink Pirouette and a piece of the Subtles Collection DSP stack in Wild Wasabi!
Then comes the greatest thing about this stamp/die bundle – the word thinlit dies! You get 4 in the pack: Happy, You, Thanks, and Hello! and the font its just so pretty! I used my Big Shot to die cut the word Happy from some more Melon Mambo, and used the Transfer Adhesive Sheets to adhere it to the card. Have I mentioned about Transfer Adhesive Sheets yet? they are perhaps the coolest adhesive I have ever used! You peel off the backing and apply your diecut to the glue, put the backing back over and rub to ensure the glue transfers, before peeling your die cut back off (carefully its now super sticky!) and putting it on your card! No longer do you have to spread wet glue as thinly as humanly possible over the back of a diecut, or attempt to stick them on with tape runner! Awesome!
Right, I think that is probably enough waffle for today!
have a great day and see you again tomorrow for Fancy Fold Friday!!!
