Two kinds of Lovely

April 2, 2019

I was inspired by a card shared on Pinterest to get out my Forever Lovely stamp set and have a play.  I have had this set out once before which I shared with you here but this time I was determined to create more than one card.   I began by doing some simple stamping onto a Note Card.  I stamped the floral image onto the Whisper White Note Card using Lovely Lipstick ink.  I stamped the leaf image around the flowers using Soft Sea Foam ink. The greeting from the Forever Lovely stamp set is stamped using Lovely Lipstick ink as well. A simple card but sometimes it takes simple to get your brain into action to start thinking about all the ways you can use the images in a stamp set.

My next card has a little bit more to it.  I wanted to use some of the beautiful co-ordinating All My Love Designer Series Paper.   I stamped the floral image from the Forever Lovely onto the upper part of Whisper White card using Lovely Lipstick ink and once more stamped the leaf image using Soft Sea Foam ink.  I attached a piece of the All My Love Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the card.  I wrapped the top of the Designer Series Paper and tied a knot using the Lovely Lipstick ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack. I stamped the greeting using Lovely Lipstick ink. I wanted to create an additional layer over the flowers using the Lovely Flowers Edgelit Die which could be a little tricky, so I will tell you how I did it.  I cut a piece of Whisper White card wider and longer than I needed and used the die to cut along one edge.  Then I placed the die cut over the stamped image and trimmed away any extra card.  There are probably more exact ways to do this but my way worked which is the important thing.  Once I had trimmed the card, I attached the whole panel to scored and folded Lovely Lipstick card.  To decorate the inside of the card I stamped across the bottom of Whisper White card, firstly the floral image using Lovely Lipstick ink and the leaf image using Soft Sea Foam ink.

So there you have it.  I love that you can use the same product suite and create lots of variations.   You can find all of the co-ordinating products on pages 5 and 6 of the Occasions Catalogue.  We have just finished Sale-a-bration and you saw how quickly some of the products sold out, so I can’t emphasise enough that if you want anything from these limited time catalogues, you need to order them sooner rather than later.

Bye for now,
