cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


I have been using the Wishing You Well set  lately and it is one we used at my Holiday Catalogue Launch last weekend.  I made a few samples which I will show you over the next few days.

When making these cards I discovered a new Colour combination which is becoming a favourite. I have seen these 2 colours paired together quite a bit over the internet recently and I just had to try it myself.  How bright and fresh are these 2 colours, Lemon Lime Twist and Gorgeous Grape.

The Gorgeous Grape card is embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder (which I think I adhered wrong again!).  This Wishing You Well set is one of the Distinktive style sets.  This means it gives different opacities to the stamped image creating depth to your image.  It gives a very effective result without too much stamping.

I simply stamped the leafy stem once with the Lemon Lime Twist onto white card.  This was then cut with one of the Layering Oval Framelits.  I could have layered the oval on to a different piece of card but instead I sponged around the edge of the oval.  The sentiment was stamped on Lemon Lime Twist card and cut with a Framelit from the Farmhouse Framelits Dies.  I wrapped some Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon around the Gorgeous Grape card before assembling it to the base card.

It’s a quick card to put together.  Watch for more cards with this combination.  Why not try it yourself??

This is the Wishing You Well set if you haven’t noticed it in the Holiday Catalogue.  For $33 AUS for clear mount it is pretty good value and is a great set for any occasion, Thinking of you cards, sympathy, birthday and Christmas.  It covers all bases I think. 🙂

Have a great day,
