Freshly Inked

In June with your help, I earned a stamp set called Good Greetings that I was able to redeem in July.  With all of my traveling about in July, it did not see any ink.  So the last few days, I’ve been trying to remedy that situation.

I got up this morning with a sort of idea in my head and it took a little while for it to finish working itself out.

I had this piece of Confetti Celebration designer paper that I had cut on a diagonal for last Sunday’s Creation Station projects.  I thought it would be cool to work with that diagonal.  So, I cut a smaller piece of the designer paper being careful to preserve the diagonal cut and layered it on  Basic Black cardstock.

Over the designer paper, I used one of the great Project Life by Stampin’ Up! cards from the Everyday Adventure collection.

Next, I cut a Bermuda Bay heart using the Hearts Collection framelits.  Then, I cut it in two using one of the trim pieces from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits.  The piece cut out with the trim thinlit was discarded.

Inking up “I Love Us” from Good Greetings in Versamark and then Bermuda Bay, I stamped on Vellum cardstock.  Then, this was carefully heat embossed with Clear embossing powder.  You don’t want to warp the Vellum cardstock.  This piece then replaced the Bermuda Bay cardstock piece that was discarded in order to complete the central heart.

Next, I added the arrow and heart from What’s Up and finished with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tip: By adhering just the parts of the Vellum cardstock that touched the border of the Project Life by Stampin’ Up! card, you don’t see any adhesive.

You may notice below in the supply items that there are no images for Good Greetings and the Gift Card Envelope and Trim Thinlits.  That’s because I am not allowed to post those products until they are available to you.  But, here are the item numbers:  Good Greetings #135017 (a Hostess Set) and Gift Card Envelope and Trims #135854.  The Thinlit will be available here beginning August 28.  And Good Greetings will be available to Hostesses this Fall.


I realized this morning that I had forgotten to post the stamp set for this week’s #stampingsunday.  If you’d like to play along tomorrow, we will be using From My Heart.  To play along, simply create something using From My Heart and post it on your social media using the hashtag #stampingsunday in the title or description.  Easy!
