Welcome to Creativity Abounds Blog Hop. We are a group of very keen Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that are coming together to share our creative ideas with you. We are happy that you can join us and hope that we can Inspire you to make creations of your own.
Our theme this month is Anything But Christmas. This is where we can use any product from the Stampin’ Up! ® Catalogues and make a card that doesn’t have a Christmas theme and as we are now getting closer to Christmas and the Stampin’ Up! ® Mini Catalogue is all about the Holiday Seasons it’s good to just make something not holiday related.
My cards in both the Blog Hop and the Tutorial focus on….
Last Friday on my ‘Live with Michele’ I created a stamped 12 x 12″ Designer Series Paper(DSP) to be used in my Wedding Scrapbook Album. I also created a piece on A4 Basic White Cardstock and decided to use this piece to create this card.
The base of my card I used Sahara Sand Cardstock and made a mat using the Split Card Textures Dies. The mat piece I used the Blending Brushes and Soft Suede Stampin’ Pad to go around the edges and die cut areas to add a little colour.
The DSP I cut down slightly smaller than my mat and tore down one side at a angle giving me a rough edge. I again added Soft Suede ink to all my edges….I just wanted to give it a earthy sort of tone.
The sentiment is from the Go to Greetings Stamp Set. This is such a great set using four basic greetings like – Happy Birthday, Just a Note, Thank You and Thinking of you and 3 different fonts. This will be my go to set for sentiments. The sentiment was die cut out using the frame die from the Brightest Beauty Bundle.
I finished of the card by adding a generous triple bow, and the sentiment just sits below but with parts of the bow under caught under it. Some Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots
On the inside of my card I have added an insert using a piece of DSP where I hadn’t stamped all the way. So if you don’t like adding lots of writing it’s perfect.
