CAS(E) This Sketch #322

Hey Everyone

CAS(E) this Sketch has an awesome sketch this week.  Take a look at this very versatile sketch:

I’ve been wanting to try out different colours with the Everything Is Rosy Product Medley.  I adore all the colours in this medley, but I wanted to mix things up and try the flowers in Powder Pink and Pool Party Inks.  I’ve stamped the centre of the flowers with Crumb Cake Ink and then added Rose Gold Adhesive Backed Mirror Embellishments. The leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzazz Ink and fussy cut out.  I then added some Whisper White leaves and a strip of Rose Gold Foil Paper cut with my Everything Is Rosy Dies.  To add some texture, I embossed the background with my Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  After stamping my favourite sentiment from the Everything Is Rosy Stamp Set I layered everything together and my card was done.


Thanks for stopping by.



Stampin’ Up! Artisan Team Blog Hop – Everything is Rosy

Hey Everyone

Welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop.  This hop the Artisan Design Team are focussing on the most amazing set of coordinating products.  These products are called Everything Is Rosy Product Medley.

I can’t tell you how excited I was to receive these beautiful products.  The colours, the ribbons, the stamps, the papers, the dies, the foil paper……….basically EVERYTHING in this box is stunning!

Don’t wait until tomorrow to order as these products will only be available to demonstrators and customers to order for the month of May.  I’m pretty sure these beautiful products will be snapped up in no time.  You don’t want to miss out on touching these pretties in real life.

In this Medley you receive the following exclusive products:
* Everything Is Rosy Photopolymer Stamp Set—18 stamps; suggested blocks: a, b, c
* Everything Is Rosy Dies—10 dies; largest die 2-7/8″ x 1″ (7.3 x 2.5 cm)

* Night of Navy/Rose Gold 3/8″ (1 cm) Metallic –Edge Ribbon—10 yards (9.1 m)
* Rose Gold Shimmer Paint—1/2 oz. (15 ml)

For a little while now, I’ve been a lover of white on white as you all know, but these papers were singing to me and I’ve added a few of them to my cards to show you how pretty they are.

For my first card, I stamped the flowers in Mambo Melon and the leaves in Night of Navy Inks. For the centre of the flowers, I stamped So Saffron and Black Memento Inks.  I am loving that the sentiment I’ve used has the word pretty in it, as this is the word that I described this whole medley – PRETTY.  The sentiment has been stamped in Night of Navy Ink and die cut with my Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  The large DSP circle was cut with my 2 ½” Circle Punch.  I couldn’t decide which ribbon I loved best, so I added both! Easy to do, right?, when they’re both so lovely!  My Basic Pearls have been given a little sponging treatment with the uber gorgeous Rose Gold Shimmer Paint.

My second card (I think my favourite of the three…..) has the most GORGEOUS Melon Mambo and Rose Gold Foil pattern through it.  I added thin strips of Night of Navy Cardstock on either side of the DSP and placed it on the left side of the card base.  I added a 2 ½” Whisper White circle, a strip of Night of Navy DSP offcut from my first card and again, both ribbons are adhered under the sentiment. Would you believe that the flowers and leaves I’ve used on this card aren’t stamped images? Yep, they are printed die cuts! All you have to do is pop them from the sheet they come in and stick them to your card!  I’ve adhered mine with Dimensionals to give them a little height.

The third card I created was made with a wedding in mind.  I leave a lot of white space on wedding cards to give it that whole elegant feel.  Also a white on white card really lets the images and elements you add really pop. For this card, I created a frame with my Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and raised it up with some Mini Dimensionals.  I added a strip of DSP, ribbon and the Rose Gold Die Cut with sentiment stamped directly to the die cut.  I cut some Whisper White leaves with my Everything Is Rosy Dies and placed these under the Printed Die Cuts.  I then placed three Basic Pearls coloured with the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my projects. The next hop along the way is Rochelle Blok – her cards are always amazing and so very striking.

Freshly Made Sketches #386

Hey Everyone

The Freshly Made Sketches Design Team have a new sketch challenge to play along with.  Our sketch designer is the super talented Jen Brum.  Jen’s sketch is fabulous as are her creations!

For my card I’ve used products from Stampin’ Up!s Everything Is Rosy Product Medley.  This exclusive medley is available to Demonstrators and Customers for the month of may.  One of the products I love from this medley is the Rose Gold Foil Paper.  I’ve cut a circle of this with my 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.  I then added the flowers and leaves which are printed die cuts.  All you have to do with pop them out from the sheet they come attached to and adhere them to your card.  I then attached the ribbons and sentiment from the Everything Is Rosy Stamp Set.  I added some Basic Pearls and my card was done in no-time! Love quick and easy cards!

Here’s my card:

We would love it if you played along. Pop over to Freshly Made Sketches and see what the team have created.

Freshly Made Sketches #385

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  This weeks sketch has been designed by the wonderfully talented Kim Singdahlsen.

Stampin’ Up!s Everything is Rosy Product Medley will be available for demonstrators and customers to order from 1st May.  I’ve used the Everything is Rosy Stamp Set for my card and stamped the flowers and leaves in Melon Mambo, So Saffron, Pear Pizzaz and Old Olive Inks.  The sentiment I’ve used on my card is also from this stamp set – don’t you just love the words in this sentiment?

The die cut running down the side of my card is from the matching die set called Everything is Rosy Dies.  I’ve cut this in Whisper White Cardstock so the flowers stood out as the focal point on my card.

Here’s the card I created with the sketch:

We would love it if you could play along with Kim’s sketch.  Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and link up a card.  While you’re there, take a look at the wonderful inspiration that has been created by the design team.
