Sandi MacIver – Stampin With Sandi – Amazing You and Celebrate You.
I’m working on my favourite things post for you for the weekend but I had to share these cards with you today because they are created with some of my favourite items from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue, Amazing You and Celebrate You.
Amazing You is the stamp set on page 16, earned free with a $60. order and this year there is a second earning category. The Celebrate You Thinlits Die set is free with a $120. order and together they make sweetness!
The Stampin Up concept artists created these cards and Stampin Up shared them with us yesterday in our weekly update newsletter. They are just so beautiful and creative with a real pop and some fun techniques too.
Die Cut Negative Space Card.
- Stamp and color the images and then die cut the word “YOU” so the “negative space” below shows through.
- Stamp and Die cut the remaining words and add them as overlays on the card front.
- This simple technique adds depth and interest to your card.
Repeat Word Die Cut Technique:
- Die cut “celebrate” a few times in Lemon Lime Twist
- Attach to the same colour card base staggering the words
- Create a sentiment banner and die cut and stamp the remaining words. from the Celebrate You Thinlits Set.
- Creates a subtle textured background for your card
note the “SPARKLY” word “amazing” it’s die cut from the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper (page 37 of the Occasions Catalogue).
The Collage Technique: (been around for years and still loved)
Layers many elements to create a grouping
This is so over the top and I totally love it. At the back there is a White embossed image of the flower in the Amazing You Stamp Set. Over that, a gold sunburst embossed on a circle of vellum. next, the leaves are fussy cut and some die cut leaves added .
The bright focal point on the card is the fussy cut two layered paper tole flower which placed over the white sentiment banner, frames it all beautifully. Little additions of a piece of doily, a wooden heart, a couple of gold sequins and a subtle border of washi tape complete the look of the card.. I think I will be duplicating this card very soon, probably all of them, haha
The Celebrate You Thinlits Dies have three words created in three different fonts to add interest to your cards.
The coordinating “Amazing You” Stamp set has the words again, this time in stamps, that amazing flower and the starburst. Wow right?
I have a couple more samples to share with you:
This one is right out of the Sale-a-bration Brochure and I love it. Stamp the flower in Lemon Lime Twist and Rich Razzleberry onto Whisper White card stock and then use your Calypso Coral “blends” to color them in. Die cut an oval with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and stamp the sentiment in the same three colors.
Add an oval mat and some folded ribbon to finish off the card.
Of course, there are lots more samples for you to CAS (copy and share) in the actual Sale-a-bration Brochure.
And Stampin Up also created a short video with a few more samples for you: If you are reading this blog post in an e-mail, you may need to click here to view the video.
Don’t you just love lots of great ideas to keep you stamping? I sure do.
Short and sweet for me today, I’m driving through all the fresh snow we received yesterday to take my MIL to the Saskatoon airport. It should be an adventure. Snow here is very light and fluffy, so it swirls when you drive through it, creating white out conditions….I’ll need a glass of wine and some stamping fun after that 5 hour trip, haha…
Thanks so much for stopping to visit with me today, wishing you Happy Stamping (and no snow).
