Step-it-Up Sunday #58 Everything is Rosy Alternate Project

Hello crafty friends,

Thank you for stopping by my blog to see what I have created for you today. Stepping it up with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley is easy. With so many products to choose from, you can create everything from simple projects to very detailed. My card is definitely not so Rosy today. I have gone with shades of green and brown for some nature-inspired colours. For my card base I used the retiring In-Colour – Tranquil Tide. 

The inspiration for my layout is taken from the brand new Annual Catalogue which will be available on 4th June. I chose the ard in the top left with the anchor for my sketch. I liked the borders on the sides of the card.

Please contact me on Ph: 0404 255 001 to request a copy of the catalogue. 


Beginner card with Everything is Rosy Project medley by Stampin' Up!

Tranquil Tide Card Base 21 x 14.8cm (scored in half)
Wood Textures DSP 14.8 x 10.5cm
Old Olive DSP 8.5x 2.5cm

This card is great for the beginner with a little bit of stamping and added elements to create a quick and easy card. I started off by stamping the leaves right along both edges of the Designer Paper in Old Olive. Photopolymer stamps make it easy to create a border like this as you can see through it.

Stamping on patterned paper gives you added design and texture to your projects. The Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) has so many textured images in it that it can be used for all types of projects. 

The sentiment was stamped onto a pre-cut label from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit. This Kit comes in a lovely presentation box with the Stampin’ Up Statement of the Heart printed on top. The silver flower is also from this kit and adds a lovely finishing touch to this #simplestamping card.

I stepped this card up a little bit by adding some stamped flowers in Soft Suede and leaves in Tranquil Tide behind the sentiment. These stamps are so beautiful and I really like the Soft Suede version of these flowers. I added some twine from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit to complete this card.

Additional measurements
Whisper White cardstock 10.8 x 2.8cm
Basic Black cardstock 11.4 x 3.4cm

My card for the avid crafter utilizes the beautiful dies that come in the Everything is Rosy Product Medley. I stamped the flowers in Soft Suede onto Soft Suede cardstock. The leaves have been stamped in Tranquil Tide onto Old Olive cardstock which gives it a lovely two-tone effect. 

The additional leaves are die cut from Tranquil Tide cardstock. Although they look similar to the leaves that are stamped behind on the Desginer Series Paper, it doesn’t cut out the stamped image – it’s completely different. However, it works together with the stamp to create a fuller look.

To break the greens and browns up I wanted a black and white paper. However I had nothing to match which was current, so I created my own with the handwritten background stamp. This is a stamp which I haven’t used much but I am loving this look in black as it added just what I wanted to make those flowers stand out.

The sentiment was heat embossed with Clear embossing powder to make it pop against the flowers. I created a bow by wrapping twine 3 times around my fingers and tying it off. Then I added the braided linen which really works well with the Wood Textures DSP.

Today was an exciting day for me as I got to pre order some product from the NEW Annual catalogue. Demonstrators who had attended the Bi-Annual conference last month have had a chance to use some of this products already. It is awesome being a demonstrator as we get to see the catalogue and products early. If you want to join and be part of the fun, excitement and creativity please get in touch with me and I’d love to help you along your journey.

Wednesday is my day off so I had a chance to really look over what I had to order. It was not easy – I wanted everything on it! The beautiful new colours and In-Colours were a definite must have item for me. What a rainbow of colours we have to design with. It’s going to be so much fun. 

The 1st of May began our Share What You Love promotion for customers. Although available in the new catalogue, these bundles and the free items that come with them, are only available until 31st May. There are different bundles to suit different types of crafters. The Statement of the Heart stamp is only available during this promotion. It’s free with the Gotta Have it All bundle.

Here are some of the cards I’ve created using this suite. The Designer Series Paper is beautiful and has a pearlescent sheen through some of the sheets. The DSP is only available in the Gotta Have it All bundle.

Hope you find creative inspiration in these cards.



Share What You Love Fancy Fold

This fancy fold card shows the beauty of the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper. I used the Make a Difference stamp set to create the word ‘Friend’.

For the centre image I die cut a circle from the Layering Circles dies. Then I embossed it with the Lovely Floral Embossing folder. The petals were coloured in with Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends and the centre of the flower brushed with Wink of Stella.  Once dry, I stamped all over the circle image with Versamark and heat embossed in Clear embossing powder. I did this step twice. It gives a nice gloss finish and really picks up the colour of the petals.
