Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend. I’m at work all day today, but tomorrow we get to watch my husband driving the race car, YAY!!!

I have a very quick and easy card today. I wanted to use the Sale-a-bration bundle that will be going away after Wednesday. If this is something you’ve been eyeing up, don’t wait to place those orders so that you can earn it for free. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Sale-a-bration Bundle for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Wonderful World DSP to a Starry Sky card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 strips of Starry Sky cardstock to the back of a panel of Wonderful World DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the rose image from the Wonderful World stamp set, coloring the stamp using my Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the sentiment from Very Best Occasions stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on top of the rose image. I used my Double Oval Punch to punch out the sentiment. From a panel of Starry Sky cardstock I punched out the scalloped oval using my Double Oval Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped oval using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a piece of Starry Sky 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I stamped the rose image from the Wonderful World stamp set on the bottom of the panel, coloring the stamp using my Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Starry Sky mat and then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Wonderful World stamp set on the envelope front, coloring the stamp using my Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered a panel of Wonderful World DSP to the envelope flap.
