Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You Birthday

I created a Beautiful You Birthday card for my share today with Beautiful You from Stampin’ Up! 

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You Birthday by Cardiology by Jari I started out with a Whisper White Thick piece of card stock and stamped one image of the woman from Beautiful You in Basic Black Archival ink.  Then, I cut it out using my Paper Snips.  I stamped another of that same image onto a panel of the red polka dot Sending Love DSP and cut out her dress and hat, then carefully adhered it to the cut out woman with some liquid glue.

Next, I randomly stamped the same woman image onto a panel of Whisper White, then framed the panel with Basic Black card stock. The sentiment is also from Beautiful You and was stamped in Basic Black, then die cut with the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  A Real Red scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies was cut to frame the sentiment oval.

Next, I layered a panel of Neutrals Designer Series Paper onto a panel of Basic Black card stock and wrapped a length of Real Red 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon around it and tied a bow.  Then, I popped that panel onto the Real Red card base with Dimensionals.  I attached the sentiment panel to the front of the art piece with Dimensionals and added a Rhinestone.  The whole art panel was popped onto the card front with Dimensionals, and finally, I added the woman with the red dress with more Dimensionals.

The inside was stamped with one of the sentiments from Beautiful You in Basic Black Archival ink and finished off with another strip of the Sending Love DSP from the front of the card.  And, there you have it, a Beautiful You Birthday card!  

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts in inches for my card will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You Encouragement Card

My share today is from Beautiful You, one of the new stamp sets found in the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.  I really think this set is appropriately named.  It is beautiful!  You can find this stamp set on page 24.  It lends itself to the new Watercolor Pencils, the Blender Pens, Aqua Painters, or you might just want to try your hand at paper piecing!  

 

Beautiful

 

The design for my card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches 269.

FMS#269 Beautiful

And the color inspiration from Sunday Stamps SSC#143

SSC143 Beautiful

I hope you’ll check out both of these challenge blogs and all of the beautiful creations there!  You may even decide to play along!

I started by layering a panel of Falling in Love Designer Series Paper, new for the 2017 Occasions Catalog, onto a panel of Tip Top Taupe.  Then, I secured a length of Very Vanilla Lace Trim and Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon to the front with a little Tear and Tape adhesive.  I also used some clear tape to hold it in place on the back.  I made sure the front adhesive was going to be covered by the art panel.  

Beautiful

 

I chose some Shimmery White card stock for my art panel and stamped the image and sentiment from Beautiful You in Tip Top Taupe ink. Then, I pulled out my blender pen and began to color in the dress and umbrella using my Pink Pirouette and Sweet Sugarplum ink pads.  I pushed on the tops while closed, then opened the ink pad and dipped my blender pen into the puddle of ink there.  I used some Soft Sky ink on the wet ground.  The art panel was layered onto a Pink Pirouette panel, then to a Tip Top Taupe panel.  One heart shaped Enamel Shapes Embellishment was added for extra interest.

Beautiful

 

To keep with the encouragement theme, I chose the inside sentiment from the You’ve Got This stamp set.  First I stamped the squiggle image onto a scrap piece of paper and stamped in the center of the Shimmery White card stock.  Then, I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position my sentiment where I wanted it and to be able to stamp it twice to make the color stand out.  

Beautiful You is such a fun stamp set because it is really unique to most of the stamps Stampin’ Up! currently offers. Have you decided to add it to your wish list, or have you already ordered it?  

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You for the Happy Stampers

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Welcome to this Thursday edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  I am sharing a sneak peek of Beautiful You, from the upcoming 2017 Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up, available on January 4th.  

 

Beautiful You

 

And, if you follow the Happy Stampers, you know this week is a color challenge:

 

Happy Stampers Blog Hop color challenge

 

I fell in love with Beautiful You the minute I saw it at OnStage Atlanta in November!  Is is such a cool set of stamps.  I know you will love it, too.  By now, you have probably seen it out on Pinterest, but I know you will see more of it very soon.  You can use water coloring, as I did, or Stampin’ write Markers, or the new Watercolor Pencils available January 4th, to color in your images.  I have seen some cards, though, with just the outline of the woman stamped that are just as beautiful as the colored in ones.  

 

Beautiful You

I stamped the image in Stazon Black ink onto Water Color paper.  Once dry, I used my Dapper Denim and Aqua Painter to color the skirt and dress.  Next, I  water colored the hat with Emerald Envy. I left a little “shadow” of both colors to the left of the dress and hat, then colored a little on the ground with Emerald Envy.

 

Beautiful You

 

The Beautiful You sentiment was stamped onto a panel of watercolor paper in Stazon Black ink.  I then water colored with Emerald Envy over the larger words.  Once it was dry, I used an oval Stitched Shapes Framelit Die to cut it out. The ribbon is 3/8″ Emerald Envy Silky Taffeta from the combo pack, on sale now for $4.50!  

 

Beautiful You

I used another of the sentiments from Beautiful You and stamped it also in Stazon Black ink.  I added a little water color wash over it using some of the Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim inks again.  

Card stock cuts in inches and products used are at the end of the post.
