Greetings my stamping friends. I hope you have been enjoying my project shares featuring the soon to retire stamp sets and other products. I also hope that you all remain healthy and safe, whether you are continuing to shelter in place or have ventured out and attempting business as usual.
Today’s project share uses two retiring stamp sets — Beautiful You and Around the Corner. Beautiful You is one of my favorite stamps sets in my stash and I am sad to see it retire. But I expect that I will hold onto it for many more years for personal use. Here is today’s card which was inspired by a card by Nancy Juliano on Pinterest:
I just love the woman’s silhouette stamps in this stamp set. She is very versatile and has even appeared as a graduate on a few cards I made last year. If you want her to have a flowery dress, simply stamp her a second time on your favorite designer series paper and fussy cut her dress out with paper snips and adhere the dress on top of the original stamped image. I have even seen others make cards with her doing cartwheels down the beach!
I wanted her to sparkle, so I colored her hat and dress with Wink of Stella after I colored with Stampin’ Blends. I also added Wink of Stella to the corner swirls which I stamped using my Stamparatus. I just love her! Don’t you?
Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of this card along with the hyperlinks for ease of shopping (just a few clicks on the thumbnails will add these items to your shopping cart):Product List
If you have any questions regarding any of the design elements of this card, please ask. I am always happy to share my project details.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
