Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You for Any Occasion

By Debbie Mageed, Beautiful You, Carried Away, Stampin Up

 

I hesitated in posting this card because I think everyone has done one already. But the new stamp set, Beautiful You, is so versatile that you will certainly see many wonderful cards with it. Maybe, just maybe, one more will convince you to finally get one for yourself! I look forward to using every single stamp in this gorgeous set.

  • This card started by stamping the image with black stazon ink. Once satisfied that it was dry, I used my new Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils (Real Red and Basic Gray) and a blender pen to color the image. I then masked it off, and watercolored the background.
  • Hearth & Home Thinlit in Whisper White was cut and then a Window Sheet was cut, lined with the Foam Adhesive Strips and layered on top of the image.
  • Carried Away DSP  (Sale-A-Bration item) was layered onto Black cardstock. Black Stitched Satin Ribbon was taped onto the card before adhering to the Thick Whisper White cardstock, then a bow was made and glued to the ribbon.
  • The sentiment was inked in Tuxedo Black Ink, cut with the Layering Oval Framelits and layered onto Black cardstock with a scalloped oval.
  • The sentiment for the inside of the card was stamped onto Whisper White, layered onto Basic Black cardstock. I cut up a few little hearts from the Confetti Heart Border punch and glued them close to the sentiment.

  1. Well Debbie, I’ve been thinking about getting this set, I’m ashamed to say I really didn’t pay to much attention to it when I first saw it in the catalog but now, oh my goodness!!! I’ve seen so many beautiful cards made with this beautiful images that I’m convinced I want it.
    Your card is amazingly gorgeous, stylish, elegant. Love this window scene you created, it’s just beautiful.
    I’ve seen this 3 images combined with the Mediterranean Moments stamp set and I was blown away by how perfectly they go together, it’s like this two sets were made for each other.
    So thank you for the little nudge I needed to go ahead and order this stamp set, I know I will enjoy playing with it.
    Big Hugs,
    Maria.

  2. Debbie, I came to comment on your RR card and got sidetracked by this beauty..I totally need this stamp now! I love how you have put her behind a window, works so perfectly with the sentiment and that gorgeous bow. Clairex
