US253 Stampin' Up! Happy Day

This weekend, SarahKaye and the crew at Unscripted Sketches have a new sketch for you to try. If you haven't visited in a while, you are sure to enjoy the variety of samples posted. Plus the blog site has been updated with info related to all of the new Design Team members added earlier this year. And as always, we would love it if you play along and link to your sketch!

My interpretation of the sketch started with some gorgeous patterned paper from our Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper set. I will miss this paper when it goes bye-bye later this month…


 I think I'll be adjusting the layout of the banners (they're bugging me!)

A note to my club members

Hi ladies,
Just wanted to let you know that due to the Free Shipping promotion Stampin' Up! will be offering on Monday, I will need to set up a new order and provide a new Hostess Code for Danae's party. I will do this ASAP Monday morning so that if you want to place an online order you can do so and have it count towards your party commitment.

As usual, contact me if you have any questions!

Stampin' Up! Timeless Talk Amazing Family En Francais

Simple products and one technique work together to create a timeless greeting.


This card was created using a paper 'mask', and a few other tools (listed below). New to stamping? Check out how easily this came together.

First, create a 'mask'. This will allow you to leave a border around any stamped images or added color.


Set your mask on top of your card front and stamp a background image (or several smaller images for a collage look). Our En Français background stamp was used here.


Once stamped, add ink along the edges of the window in the mask; I used a Stampin' Sponge and Crumb Cake Classic Ink.


Remove the mask and you have:


Now it's ready for trimming and adhering to a card front. I also added additional stamped images from Amazing Family (sentiment) and Timeless Talk (phone) in Early Espresso Classic Ink. If you want to try this, I suggest using bold images so that they don't get lost in the details of the background stamp.

Stamps: Amazing Family (w129189/cm129192), Timeless Talk (w126605/cm126607), En Francais (128562/127790)
