We love when our friends at Stampin' Up! join us each month and it's even more special when it's during our Partner Celebration! Stampin' Up! has been a large supporter of all the we do here at SCT for the past 10 years. Today they have invited one of their team members to share some beautiful projects and of course, a giveaway!
"Hello there, my name is Katy Harrison and I’m a Stampin’ Up! Artisan based in the Yorkshire dales in the UK. I have been cardmaking for 10 years and I love stamping!
Today I wanted to share with you projects I made using the Wood Words Stamp Set and the Wood Crate Framelits Dies. Both are brand new products in the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and I knew I ‘had’ to have them! They are the perfect duo for gift giving but also versatile enough for every day.
For the card, I wanted to create something quite feminine. I adore the look of white embossing on to a neutral colour and Crumb Cake Cardstock is my go to neutral. I stamped the floral image from the Wood Words Stamp Set twice on to Crumb Cake Cardstock using VersaMark® pad, sprinkled with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set with a Heat Tool. I coloured some of the flowers with the white pencil in the Watercolor Pencils I glued this layer down on to my card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Next, I took a strip of Soft Sky Cardstock, inked up the Diagonal Stripe Stamp with Pool Party Classic Stampin’ Pad and stamped the stripes on to this piece of cardstock, this was attached to the first layer, setting it just above midway.
I decided to layer the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals, this made it a little easier to attach the blue floral heart with Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine. To make the heart I used the solid heart stamp, inked with Pool Party Classic Stampin’ Pad and stamped on to Soft Sky Cardstock. I then used the heart shape in the Wood Crate Framelits Dies and then stamped the floral image just on the edges of the heart with VersaMark® and embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.
Now, onto the wood crate! I can see so much potential for this Framelit set, especially at the busiest gift-giving season, Christmas. But really anything you want to add a little rustic charm to!
This crate is so easy to make! Die cut two of the crate dies in Crumb Cake Cardstock and then stamp the Hardwood Background stamp, again using VersaMark® and embossing with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Fold and score all the score lines (the framelit creates the score lines for you, super easy!) then glue together to create your crate. I popped a little biscuit treat in there, I mean who doesn’t like biscuits right?
To finish off, I made a tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I folded the tag in half and attached by threading one end of the tag through the bottom slit of the crate. I die cut another heart, this time from Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the sentiment on to this using Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad. I tied the tag and heart together with Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine.
I hope you enjoyed my projects today!" ~ Katy Harrison
Thank you Katy! These projects are gorgeous! The neutral with the white is incredibly striking and that crate is darling!
