Card for teacher with Stampin Up UK Hardwood

Card for teacher with Stampin Up UK Hardwood



A member of my Stampin Up downline recently qualified as a teacher - well done Tassy!
 
So today I am sharing this very simple card I made for her to say Congrats!
 
I think it would also make a great teachers thank you card too.
 
The wood effect is created using the wonderful Hardwood stamp set from Stampin Up which I love at the moment and congratulations is from my old favourite Sassy Salutations.

Loving the Hardwood effect by Stampin' Up Uk

Loving the Hardwood effect by Stampin' Up Uk


I've had the fantastic hardwood stamp from Stampin' Up for a few weeks now but haven't really had a chance to play with it before tonight when I put together these two simple but effective cards.

I do believe it is my favourite back ground stamp - just look at all that detail!




Both cards also use the lovely and ever popular petite petals stamp set and matching punch - this has been my best seller by far from the seasonal mini - I'm so pleased it has carried over into the new catalogue.
 
I've also used the itty bitty punch pack flower - I'm so going to miss that set which has now retired.
 
Fear not however - the replacement is pretty nice too!

Colourful Splats and Butterflies with Stampin' Up Products

Colourful Splats and Butterflies


 
Yesterday evening saw me production line crafting to make some thank you cards for customers who have recently ordered Stampin' Up products through me - I really do appreciate every order.
 
As always, if you would like to know more about Stampin' Up or order any products, please get in touch via craftycarolinecreates@gmail.com or call me, 0161 4380668.

The card was inspired by a few I'd seen on Pinterest and as our summer has been so mixed recently working with such bright colours really lifted my mood.


 
I started with a base of Whisper White Card Stock measuring 13.8cm by 9.5cm and I made the two embossed lines by scoring the card on my Stampin' Up trimmer at 0.5cm and 1cm from each end.
 
I then flipped the card over and you are left with these gorgeous embossed lines.
 
The splodges of colour are made using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, again from Stampin' Up. I wasn't sold on this set when it came out but now I am an absolute convert. It is so versatile and as you can see in this card, very effective. I overlapped each colour slightly and rotated the stamp set 180degrees after each stamp.
 
The colours I used are, Real Red, Crisp Canteloupe, Crushed Curry, Wild Wasabi and Bermuda Bay
 
I then punched out the butterflies using the Bitty Butterfly Punch in scraps of card stock which match the ink. The way Stampin' Up products coordinate together is possibly one of the things I love best about the company and this card really highlights this.
 
I popped each butterfly on to the card using half of a Stampin' Dimensional. It still needed something else so I highlighted the butterflys with jewels and pearls.
 
Finally, I mounted the the design on a standard Whisper White Card Blank, again using a few Stampin' Dimensionals.

 
Here they all are lined up and ready to go. I think the card works well in both landscape and portrait.
 
They will be winging their way to customers today - I hope they like them.
