Suite Showcase 12 - Bright & Beautiful

Hello and welcome back!

Can you believe it’s nearly the end of June already and today is the longest day of the year?! This year is just flying by.

For today’s Suite Showcase, we’re using the Bright and Beautiful suite. I’ve made 3 cards for you today. Honestly, there’s so much that can be done with this whole suite, I could have kept going. And the great thing about this suite is that there is also Memories & More, card pack and envelopes available so they all coordinate. 

For my first card today, I used a standard size card base and then added a strip of designer series paper (DSP), a smaller strip of gold Be Dazzling specialty paper and a piece of Basic White cardstock that measures the full height of the card and 3 1/2 inches  wide. 

I then stamped each of the balloons in different colours - Lemon Lime Twist, Azure Afternoon and Berry Burst and added the string for each in Memento Black. I think it turned out cute and it’s really straight forward to make. I did put the stamped layer on dimensionals to give the card some interest. I stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst, on a scrap piece of Basic White and trimmed to size, bannering one end. To finish the card off, I used our new metallic enamel effects in gold.

For my second card, I decided to change things up and create a DL card. The card base is 8” x 8” scored in half on one side at 4”.  I stamped the largest balloon and tassels in Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist and Azure Afternoon. Then using the same colours, I stamped the streamers randomly in the background.  

I then die cut 3 balloons from our Vellum Basics DSP and Vellum cardstock. On the Vellum cardstock I heat embossed in copper, the happy birthday sentiment. And added a bow using the white basic twine. To finish, I used the copper metallic enamel effects randomly across the card.

Then finally, I decided to change things up again for my third card by creating a square card base in Lemon Lolly measuring 11 1/2” x 5 3/4”, scored in half on the long side at 5 3/4”. I used a matting layer measuring 5 1/2” square. To this I added the remainder of the DSP from the first card, cut to 5 1/4” by approximately 2” and adhered this to the white layer. I then chose another piece of DSP cut to 5 1/4” by 4 1/2” and added a slither of Berry Burst, top and bottom to this and adhered this on to the layer.

I die cut the stars from Lemon Lolly, Berry Burst and Pretty Peacock. The tag was die cut from Basic White and the sentiment was stamped in Pretty Peacock. To finish the card off, I added a bow using the Gold & Vanilla ribbon with some extra tails from White Basic Twine and Adhesive Backed Sequins Trio.

This is such a fun set, I hope you like my cards. Why not head over to see what Alison has been making at The Inkspirational Crafter.
