World Card Making Day - Stampin' Up! Blog Hop

Hello and welcome. Today (Friday night here in the UK)  I'm taking part in a World Card Making Day Blog Hop featuring current Stampin' Up! products. This is such a great way to celebrate this event with lots of amazing inspiration for you to check out.

You are currently visiting me, Fiona Whitten, here in Wokingham (Berkshire, UK). You will get to visit lots of different places around the world as you hop around.

There is a list at the end of this post which will help you to move along from blog to blog, and you will get to see well over 20 amazing projects.

My projects feature the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper and the Suite Seasons stamp set. I wanted to show how easy it is to get three different looks to a card, but use the same paper and stamp set.

For the first card I simply stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and added a cute Cherry Cobbler heart from a pack of the Regals Enamel Shapes. Both the sentiment and the Emerald Envy layers were die cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies.

For the second card, I broke out my Emerald Envy and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Markers, and coloured the stamp using those. I love how you can use the markers to highlight different parts of a sentiment. All the other elements are the same as the first card.

There's a bit of gold embossing on the third card.   The Cherry Cobbler enamel heart was swapped out for a Cherry Cobbler bow that had been stamped and punched out using the Holly Berry Bundle (Holly Berry Happiness stamp set and coordinating Holly Berry Builder Punch). In the centre of the bow there is a round enamel shape from the same pack as the hearts previously used.

All three cards have a stamped image on the inside. I used the same markers as those used on the second card, and simply inked up part of another sentiment from the same stamp set.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you really don't want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog - Fiona Whitten, so check the blog hop line up list below to see who is next on the list.
