Stampin’ Up Beautiful You

Good Wednesday morning everyone.  Hope you are all having a wonderful week.  Since it is still Summer for a couple more days, I decided to do a bit of a summery card for todays blog.

For today’s card I used the Beautiful You stamp set, which I absolutely love.  I love stamps with a sketched look.

I started with a piece of So Saffron cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set on the bottom right side in Pacific Point Ink. I then ran it through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  With the Dynamic Textured Impressions Folders you only need to use one cutting pad.  I spritzed the paper gently on the back (so that my ink wouldn’t run), with water using my Stampin’ Spritzer to break up the paper fibers a little so that the paper wouldn’t crack when running it through the Big Shot.

Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue I added a strip of Garden Impression Designer Series Paper to the left side.  I stamped the image of the woman in Early Espresso Ink on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored her dress and hat using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers and her arms and legs with the Ivory Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I then sponged the edge of the artwork with Pacific Point Ink using a Sponge Dauber.  I also sponged the edge of the Pacific Point cardstock square behind the artwork using Pacific Point Ink.

I adhered the artwork to the Pacific Point square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then attached it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added 3 of the Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish off the front of my card.

On the inside I stamped the woman again, stamping off 5 times to get a very light image.  I stamped another sentiment from the Beautiful You set in Pacific Point Ink over the image of the woman.  Using Snail I adhered the inner liner to a So Saffron mat and then to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish off my card, I stamped the image of the woman, stamping off twice, on the front and added a piece of Garden Impression DSP with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the flap of a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  Hope you’ll consider trying this card for yourself.
