Goodbye Beautiful You

May 15, 2020

Today I am sharing a set of cards I created using the retiring stamp set Beautiful You.  I also used the retiring 6″ x6″ 2019-2021 In-Colour Designer Series Paper (the colours are not retiring just the paper) and the retiring Delicate Lace Dies.  I created three cards using the female images from the Beautiful You stamp set.  The first card, has a piece of the Seaside Spray Designer Series Paper attached to Smoky Slate card and then scored and folded Thick Whisper White card. I stamped the image from the Beautiful You stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using the Seaside Spray, Ivory and Bronze Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the image using the Layering Ovals Dies, attached it to a Smoky Slate scalloped oval and then the card front using dimensionals.  To decorate the inside of the card I attached a strip of Smoky Slate behind one long edge of the same Seaside Spray Designer Series Paper  before attaching it to Whisper White card.

For the second card I  embossed Whisper White card using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder (retiring).  The embossed card is attached to scored and folded Smoky Slate card.   I cut one edge of a piece of Seaside Spray card using the Delicate Lace Dies.  I attached a piece of the Seaside Spray Designer Series Paper before attaching the panel to the card front.  Once more I stamped the image from the Beautiful You stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black inkThe image is coloured using the Soft Seaside, Ivory and Bronze Stampin’ Blends.  The image is cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies, attached to a Smoky Slate scalloped oval and then the card front using dimensionals.  To decorate the inside of the card I cut Soft Seaside card using the Delicate Lace Dies before attaching a piece of the Soft Seaside Designer Series Paper.   The whole panel is attached to the bottom of Whisper White card.

For the third card, I embossed Whisper White card using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Smoky Slate card.  I cut Soft Seaside card twice using the Delicate Lace Die and attached one die to each side of a strip of the Soft Seaside Designer Series Paper.   The Designer Series Paper panel is attached to the card front. I stamped the image from the Beautiful You stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using Soft Seaside, Ivory and Bronze Stampin’ Blends.  The image is cut out using one of the Layering Squares Dies, attached to a Smoky Slate scalloped square and then the card front using dimensionals.  To decorate the inside of the card, I cut Soft Seaside card using the Delicate Lace Die, attached it behind a piece of Soft Seaside Designer Series Paper before attaching the panel to Whisper White card.

They look so pretty together don’t they.

Because the first three cards were so lovely, I decided to create some more.  This set uses the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, Purple Posy Designer Series Paper and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends.

This set uses Tufted 3D Embossing Folder, Rococo Rose Designer Series Paper and Rococ Rose Stampin’ Blends.

This set uses the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder,  Pretty Peacock Designer Series Paper and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends.

I think I have just about used up all of this retiring Designer Series Paper.  While I am sad to see the Beautiful You stamp set and the Delicate Lace Dies retire, I can’t wait to see what gorgeous new product will be available in the next Annual Catalogue.

Bye for now,

Kris
