Basic Borders


For today’s cards I made 4 the same but used different dies from the Basic Borders Dies (#155558).

Using a Blending Brush (#153611) and Seaside Spray ink (now retired) I coloured the Basic White card front (#159228). Then I stamped the images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set (#154368) with VersaMark (#102283) and heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155555), then set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I added some extra colour on 2 of the cards over the stamped images using Balmy Blue ink (#147007). I then cut the Gold Foil Sheet (#132622) and the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper (#154288) with the Basic Border Dies. These were attached to the card front. I added the (retired) Seaside Spray Metallic ribbon to one of the cards.

The “celebrate” is from the Many Mates stamp set (retired), “Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Friend” is in the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set (#154368), “Thinking Of You” is in the Quiet Meadow stamp set (#155082) and “Happy Birthday” is from the Happy Thoughts stamp set (#154507). These were all Gold Embossed and cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies (#151820) and Stitched So Sweetly dies (#151690). Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the sentiments to the card.

True Love Designer Series paper


Sorry for my absence lately but have had a lot on. I am taking a bit of a break over the next few weeks, but hope to get the occasional card made to put on the blog.

I am still loving the True Love Designer Series Paper (#154281) which I have used again on todays card.

The Stampin’ Blends to colour the floral image are- Flirty Flamingo (#154884), Pale Papaya (#155519), Purple Posy (#154896), So Saffron (#154905) and Granny Apple Green (#154885).

The card front was stamped with a border from the Elegantly Said stamp set (#155095) using Basic Gray ink (#149165). Using the Stamparatus (#148187) made it easy to stamp the border. The Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon (#144213) was wrapped around the card front, then the card front was attached to the Basic Gray card (#121689). The base card and card front are Basic White (#159228).

The sentiment from the Many Messages stamp (#154510) was stamped with Basic Gray ink and cut with the co-ordinating Messages Die (#154422). The sentiment and flowers were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and I added the Silver Raindrops from the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials (#155567).

By the time you are reading this the new Annual catalogue will probably be available to order from (4th May). There’s a great variety of new exciting products available so make sure to check them out -  lesleyjendra.stampinup.net
