Stampin’ Up! Label Me Pretty Card – HSS320

I can’t even begin to believe it’s almost August.
I’m holding onto summer tightly and still love playing with pretty flowers and sweet birds in my cards.

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock which I embossed using my FAVORITE embossing folder, the Subtle EF.

My card was inspired by the latest Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  You can get pretty creative with this sketch and I hope you’ll play along with us this week!

Next, I took the polka dot pattern from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and matted a piece of it on Whisper White cardstock.

Underneath it I tucked a Whisper White circle which I cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I used our super sharp Paper Snips to fussy cut out a bird from the Bird Ballad DSP and adhered him down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set in Versamark ink on a 2″ piece of Calypso Coral cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut the top of it using the Delightful Tag Topper, wound a piece of White Flax Ribbon through it, and secured it with a staple.

Lastly, I added a few pearls around the card.

Wood Textures

I am through the roof excited to share today’s card with you.
It has a beautiful back story.

We had hired FunCycled (a design consultant) to come in and look at our basement (which was 80% finished, but still felt like a basement and not warm and inviting) a few months back.  Fast forward a few weeks later, a flooded basement and a miracle, and FunCycled came in and completely redid our basement.  It looks nothing short of amazing and we are so grateful.  You can read our whole story here.

The thank you card I made for them was completely inspired by our basement – wood textures, cool grays, and creams.

The card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock as a base (which btw – I’m so excited for the NEW Thick Very Vanilla cardstock – available 6/1).  I then adhered a panel of Basic Gray cardstock to the card.

The NEW Wood Textures DSP couldn’t have been more perfectly timed!!!  I took one of the patterns and cut it down and adhered it to the card.  I then cut a banner of Very Vanilla cardstock and adhered it over the DSP.

The sentiment is from the NEW Label Me Pretty stamp set and was stamped in Basic Gray ink and cut out using the Layering Circles Framelits with a layered Basic Gray circle behind it.  I wound behind it some Linen Thread and then adhered it to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy and please go check FunCycled out!  They are so talented and a pleasure to work with!
