STYLISH STEMS STAMPIN' UP! THANK YOU CARD

Hello and welcome back to my blog today.
I would like to share with you today my beautiful card which I made to my wonderful friend to say thank you using the amazing Suite Sentiments Stamp Set, Stylish Stems, Layering Circle and Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies,  
PAPER:
CARD BASEWatermelon Wonder / Delightful Dijon A4 Cardstock cut in half 5-7/8'' x 8-1/2'' (14,9 x 21 cm) score and fold in half
- LAYERS- 2 x Whisper White Cardstock 3-7/8'' x 5-5/8'' (9,8 x 14,2cm) one inside and one outside.
First I stamped my sentiment using Basic Black Archival Stampin Pad and the beautiful sentiment from Suite Sentiments Stamp Set on one of my Whisper White Cardstock piece and the other piece I glue inside my card to write my message.
Using my Big Shot and Stylish Stems Framelits Die I die cut  the flower on piece of Whisper White Cardstock, then Layering Circle Framelits Dies (the second largest one) I die cut out the flower and using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (the largest one) I die cut my Watermelon Wonder / Delightful Dijon layer and the stalk and leaves. 
Between the top Whisper White layer and card base I glued white craft foam measure 5 3/8'' x 3 5/8'' (13,6cm x 9,2cm) so everything will be lifted from the front of my card and it will hold nicely through the mail.

  I also put some Stampin' Dimensionals on the back Watermelon Wonder / Delightful Dijon Layering Circle and the Cucumber Crush leaves and stick it to the front of my card. To make the last touch I added five Rhinestones Basic Jewels in to the middle of my die cut flower.

SWIRLY SCRIBBLES & FLORAL PHRASES THANK YOU CARD IDEA WITH STAMPIN' UP!

Hello and welcome back to my blog today.
I can feel the Spring in my heart already and that is my inspiration! The colourful and flowery card I made using Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies, Swirly Bird Stamp Set and Floral Phrases Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!
PAPER:
- CARD BASE- Whisper White Thick A4 Cardstock cut in half 5-7/8'' x 8-1/2'' (14,9 x 21cm) score and fold in half
- LAYER- Whisper White Cardstock 3-7/8'' x 5-5/8'' (9,8 x 14,2cm)
To start decorate my card I took my Versamark Pad, Clear Block C and the dotted stamp from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set and stamp random on my Whisper White Cardstock layer keeping clean bottom part for sentiment, then using White Stampin' Emboss Powder and Hit Tool (UK) I made some white dotty background.
Using Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight & Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Pads i stamped on the same colours Cardstock the flowers and leaves line from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set using Clear Block A...
...then I took my Big Shot and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies and cut out all the leaves and flowers and also two Swirly Scribbles in two different sizes using pieces of Watermelon Wonder & Peekaboo Peach Cardstock.
The wonderful sentiment I get from Floral Phrases Stamp Set and using Clear Block I and Basic Black Archival Stampin' Pad I stamp it around 0,5'' inch (1,3cm) from the bottom of the layer.
To put together my card I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I used white craft foam measure 5-3/8'' x 3-5/8'' (13,6 x 9,2cm) between Whisper White Thick card base and top layer, you can also use Stampin' Dimensionals if you dont have the craft foam. Then I glue first the Swirly Scribbles then before I stick the flowers and leaves I give it dimension using Stampin' Pierce Mat and Scoring Tool. On the end I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to one of the card and Pearl Basic Jewels to another.
Thank You

GATEFOLD CARD WITH BUTTERFLY & DRAGONFLY CLOSURE BY STAMPIN' UP!

Hello and welcome back to my blog today.
 I have a magic closing card using Butterfly Detailed Thinlits Dies or Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies and Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!
PAPER:
- Card base: 12'' x 12'' (30,5 x 30,5cm) Peekaboo Peach / Watermelon Wonder Cardstock measure 12'' x 4 1/8'' (30,5 x 10,5 cm) and score on longer side on: 4 3/4'' & 10 5/8'' (12cm & 27cm)
- Card base inside part: Peekaboo Peach / Watermelon Wonder Cardstock measue 5 3/4'' x 4 1/8'' (14,5 x 10,5cm)
- Inside layer Whisper White Cardstock 5 1/2'' x 3 7/8'' (13,9 x 9,7cm)
- Front layerFruit Stand Designer Series Paper: 4 1/2'' x 3 7/8'' (11,7 x 9,7cm)
- Inside layer Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper: 5 1/2'' x 3 7/8'' (13,9 x 9,7cm)
- Sentiment strap: Whisper White Cardstock 1/2'' (1,3cm) wide and as long as you need for any sentiment of your choice.
I used two different stamp sets to stamp my sentiments; the top one is from Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set and the bottom one is from Fresh Fruit Stamp Set, both are Photopolymer Stamp Sets and Basic Black Archival Stampn' PadI added my sentiment using Stampin' Dimensionals
To cut the butterfly and dragonfly I used Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. I also used two different thinlits dies, as you can see on the left I used Butterfly Detailed Thinlits Dies
...and on the right Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies. The best way to die cut the butterfly and the dragonfly is use with your Big Shot the Precision Base Plate as is cut perfectly.
To cut the window as you can see on the picture below I used Classic Label Punch
For the butterfly I punch only ones but for the dragonfly I need to punch twice to extend the window to be longer as I wont to see my whole dragonfly.
To give more shining and more dimensions to my cards I added few of the Metallic Sequin Assortment
To put together my cards I used only Multipurpose Liquid Glue as by my opinion it is the stronger adhesive but you can use any adhesive of your choose.
