Joyce's Demo Card

I found this layout in the current Idea Book and Catalogue from the US - or it may have been the retiring catalogue - but Stampin' Up anyway - so I just tweaked it a little, changing the sentiment and image to suit myself and what I had available and adding a little Almost Amethyst cardstock - it just helped to lift the card for my eye lol.

The base card is Elegant Eggplant with Almost Amethyst, Close to Cocoa and Very Vanilla for the layers.

I used the Sanded background stamp on the Close to Cocoa and my main image comes from the stamp set Soft Summer to be found on the first page of the mini catalogue - you can see it by clicking on the mini catalogue front page in my side bar, to the right - pretty, isn't it?

The inks used were those that match the cardstock perfectly - Elegant Eggplant and Almost Amethyst - it's what's so lovely about Stampin' Up products: the fact it all matches.

My trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig helped me to align the images to give a shadowed effect and again to position the little sentiment - there are two in the set and I used the other on the envelope, just in the corner.

A little bit of Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon just gives a bit of zing and an additional dash of colour.

As I said in my previous post - not my usual colours but definitely my style - which tends to be quite simple, certainly not difficult to achieve but pretty all the same.

I have a little Thank You card ready to show you tomorrow, it highlights Organic Grace, one of the Hostess sets that really comes to life when stamped - it's magical.

  1. Hello Bridgett, lovely card, as always! Looking forward to seeing the organic grace card - really wish I'd picked that set for my hostess gift - never mind will have to see if I can squeeze in another party before the new release catalogue.

Is there anyone out there? Your comments let me know that I am not alone in my 'happy space' - which is very reassuring. Thank you.
