You Move Me to Choose Happiness with Stampin’ Up!

 

You Move Me All Occasion Card

Can you believe that we are now in September?? Wow! We have a new challenge for you and it’s a “No Excuses” challenge – Anything Goes! It’s everyone’s favorite and all you have to do is ink up one of your older stamps. I absolutely love to combine my older stamps with new products! This card used You Move Me stamp set from the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog (you can bundle it with the thinlits and save 10%) and Choose Happiness from the 2014-2015 Annual Catalog. This Whole Lots of Lovely DSP is beautiful and perfect for the coming fall season.

 

It’s All in the Details
  • This card came together really easily, starting with the cardbase of Crushed Curry. The DSP was cut and layered onto Soft Suede, then adhered to the card base.
  • The flower from Choose Happiness was stamped in Soft Sky and colored with Copic Markers. Once I was happy with that (i.e. lots of “Is that enough? Maybe one more go-round” discussions with myself), I cut it with a Layered Ovals Framelit. Then, I cut another layer with Tranquil Tide cardstock.
  • Soft Suede cardstock trimmed for the card front was adhered to the card base. Then, a scrap of Burlap Ribbon was adhered to that, and a small piece of Gold Sequin Trim was laid down with glue dots on the ends.
  • The pretty butterfly was made with You Move Me stamp set and cut with the Move Me Framelits then popped up with dimensionals.
  • I couldn’t decide where to put a sentiment so I just stamped the “HI there” onto the oval framelit. It was then adhered to the card base with dimensionals.
  • The Finishing Touch was adding pearls to the butterfly.
