In the Spotlight – Sending You Thoughts

Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson |In the Spotlight – Sending You Thoughts

Today I’m highlighting one of the fun, FREE products available in this year’s Sale-A-Bration offerings (click here for all the details), the Sending You Thoughts stamp set. These sentiment type sets are one of my favourites and this one will cover lots of occasions as well as having the option to have “innie & outie” pairings – I love that 🙂

One of the great things about sentiment only sets is that your can pair them with any imagery you like &/or use your DSP to add colour and pattern – which is what I’ve done with my projects today.

The paper I’m using is from the 6″ x 6″ DSP Sampler which is only available as part of this year’s the joining offer, as a Demonstrator I was able to pre-order this and it was a great way to get a sample of 6 different packs of DSP without having to buy the full pack, however, these designs are in the full sized packs as well and that is what I’ve linked below.

I chose a simple layout for these cards and used quite a few dies to cut the layers I wanted, but if you don’t have many dies you could easily trim the rectangles with your trimmer and use some punches to add a few extra shapes.

I die cut my DSP pieces and adhered them flat to a cardstock layer and then to a coloured card base – I thought I’d change it up from the usual white 🙂

The sentiment was stamped and die cut as well and I did pop this up for a little texture. To finish off my card fronts I added a little twine around the base layer and some of the Clear & Gold Faceted Gems – I love them on the golf card, they look like little golf balls 🙂

I added a Whisper White layer inside for ease of writing and two more strips of DSP at the top & bottom for a pop of colour – a great way to use up the scraps 🙂 The sentiment was stamped using the Stamparatus and then I adhered this to the inside of my cards to finish them off.

I really like how these simple cards turned out and this design is a great way to use up some of your smaller DSP pieces. I like how even though they use the same layout they have a different “feel” to them depending on the DSP I used & might have to make a few more using some of the other patterns I have.

Cheers,
Karen
