More ... using So In Love

This beautiful card was another of the projects created at my Project class this month.

It was inspired by one in the Spring / Summer catalogue. Very simple, but so lovely.

The So Detailed Thinlits dies are really delicate and very pretty. I'm quite sad that they are going. If we have stock remaining, then today will be your last chance to purchase them.

So In Love with So Detailed Thinlits - Class Projects

I struggled to decide which products to focus on for my May Project class! There were so many lovely stamp sets and bundles in the Spring / Summer catalogue ..... and lots I hadn't yet used :o)

I finally decided to use the Falling In Love suite. These products are all so pretty together. They are perfect for Weddings, but so much more too.

This simple Gift Bag was created using the Simply Scored board. I used the Gift Bag punch board just to punch the shape on the sides of the opening Flap. 

We made a matching card for the Gift Bag. I really like how the design for the front panel came out on them both.

This actually took quite a while to design - in elapsed time. Do you ever create something, but are not completely happy with it when finished? But you can't quite place what it is that's 'wrong'. 

I originally created the card as is, but without the ½ Doily under the ribbon. I liked the card, but knew something was missing .... or not quite right. It took almost 2 weeks of looking at it on and off to work out what was wrong .... which is when the Doily with the paper backing was added. Now I'm happy :o)

The coordinating embellishments are truly lovely. I added them to the front panels by using a little Linen Thread to tie them onto the ribbon.

Daisy Delight - Sneak Peek

There are only a few days wait left now before the new Annual catalogue from Stampin' Up! is released! Lots of new products are coming and it's a very exciting time :o)

I have used a combination of old and new on this card. The card stock is from our 2015 - 2017 In Colour range - Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe. This colour range is only available until the 31st May, then it will be retired.

The stamp set is new - Daisy Delight. This is a beautiful floral set .... and the large Daisy has a matching punch.

I used one of the smaller flower images for this card and cut it out using one of the Stitched Shapes framelits - these are still my absolute favourite of all our shaped framlits! The scalloped back layer was cut using one of the Layering Oval framelits.


NOTE: Sneak Peek Products will not be available until 1st June
