Stampin’ Up! Hello You & Antique Tags


I used the Stampin’ Up Hello You Thinlets Dies and Antique Tags stamp set to create my card for today’s Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop.  We are all using a combination of Basic Black, Gold and White for the color challenge this week.



These colors remind me of a celebration, so I decided a New Year’s card would be fun:


Hello You and Antique Tags Card-iology by Jari


I love how easily this card came together once I decided what I wanted to do!  The Hello You Thinlets really came through for this burst of sentiment, and the Antiques Tags stamp set is perfect for the theme of the card.  (Wait for the inside!)


Hello You and Antique Tags Card-iology by JariI die cut the word happy twice from the Hello You thinlets dies and glued them together with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.   The sentiment was stamped from Antique Tags and notice that only part of the image was used here.  I taped off the parts I did not want to use before stamping with Versa Mark ink.  I removed the tape, then stamped onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock and sprinkled on Black Embossing powder.  Once dry, I used the banner from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlets Dies to cut out the sentiment.

Hello You and Antique Tags Card-iology by JariThe banner was framed with another banner cut from Gold Glimmer paper and attached to my sentiment banner with Multipurpose liquid glue.  The card base is Basic Black with a panel of Gold Glimmer paper attached to it with Multipurpose liquid glue, I cut out stars with the Itty Bitty accents star punch and the star from the Mini Treat Bag thinlets set in Gold Foil and Gold Glimmer paper, attached them with glue dots, glued down the gold happy sentiment with the Fine Tip Glue Pen, added a Gold Metal button with Gold Cording to the small sentiment and popped it onto a panel of striped Neutrals DSP with Dimensionals.  Finally, the sentiment panel was also popped onto the card base with Dimensionals.

Antique Tags Card-iology by JariThe inside was finished off with the whole New Years stamp image from Antique Tags with Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Winter Wonderland Vellum. Before stamping it, I attached the DSP to a panel of Whisper White cardstock with specs of glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen, then I added strips of Winter Wonderland Washi Tape to the top and bottom for a finishing touch!

Card stock cuts and supplies will be at the end of the post.
