Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which features the new Amazing Silhouettes stamp set from the January – June 2022 Mini Catalog! While there are many perks as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I just love attending the events! Even though attendance has been remotely from home in 2020 and 2021, we are still able to earn some amazing prizes and one of those prizes from this last November’s On Stage @home is this beautiful Amazing Silhouettes stamp set! This is part of a bundle with coordinating dies (page 40 in the JJ mini catalog), but I thought I would see what I could “whip up” just using the stamp set. Pairing the stamp set with the Through it Together stamp set, Pattern Party DSP, Brushed Metallic Cardstock, a little die-cutting, and embellishments, this is a super easy card to make to send out for some much needed encouragement!
The base layer is this design from the Pattern Party DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. Cut a 4” x 5 ¼”, use the angled border die from the Basic Borders Dies to die-cut about 1” from the left side, and use the butterfly silhouette stamp to stamp once in Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, and Melon Mambo inks.
2. Stamp the sentiment from Through it Together in Petal Pink ink on Basic White cardstock and die-cut out with the smallest layering Stitched So Sweetly die.
3. Use the second smallest layering Stitched So Sweetly die to die-cut from the copper Brushed Metallic cardstock. This will be layered under the above sentiment.
4. You will need two small and one large copper Brushed Metallic Dots, not pictured.
I used liquid glue to adhere the top layer cardstock to the bottom layer DSP, lining up the right side edges, use dimensionals to adhere the layered die-cut sentiment, and place the three brushed metallic dots as shown. This completed piece is adhered to a Thick Basic White cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Petal Pink ink, and adhere a ¾” x 4” strip of the same design DSP along the bottom:
For the coordinating envelope, I just stamped the butterfly silhouette in Petal Pink ink in the bottom left corner:
Not bad for not knowing how I exactly was going to use this stamp set! I chose the Pattern Party DSP because I could use any of the colors to stamp the butterfly in and I really like using the border die, so it looks like the DSP is peeking out from underneath. I paired the brushed copper cardstock and metallic dots because I used not ONE of the metallic dots for any of my holiday cards!! Which, by the way, you can still purchase both! Want an alternative? Simply use whatever your favorite DSP is and stamp the butterfly in one, two, or three coordinating colors!
