Beautiful You in Gold Card

Hi everyone, 

Today I would like to share with you, my entry for this weeks Global Design Project Challenge. The challenge this week was to C.A.S.E the designer. The designer was the extremely talented Michelle Last. 

So here is my take on Michelle's design :)

A close up of the Beautiful You stamp that was used.

I wanted to keep my card very simple and clean looking with only using a couple of different colours. I really wanted the gold on this card to be the main focus and I feel that I achieved the look I was aiming for :)

One of the stamp sets that has been used for todays card, is the Beautiful You set from Stampin' Up.

Beautiful You Clear-Mount Stamp Set

This is a two piece set which has all of the stamps you see in the photo.  It really is a pretty set and I love the sentiments that you get.

The other stamp set used for today's card is called Playful Backgrounds.

Playful Backgrounds Photopolymer Stamp Set

The colour card stock I have used for this card is another one of Stampin' Up's; up and coming new in colours for 2017 - 2019. It is called Tranquil Tide. A beautiful deep teal colour and it will be available from June 1st.

On to how I made today's card :)


Card base - Whisper White card stock measuring 10 x 5 1/2 inches (25 x 14 cms)

Score the card base at 5 inches (12 1/2 cms)

Other card stock that will be needed :-

Tranquil Tide card stock (or any card stock of your choice)

1 piece @ 4 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches (12 x 13 cms)

1 piece @ 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches (6 x 8 1/2 cms) 

1 piece @ 3/4 x 2 1/2 inches (1 1/2 x 6 cms)

Whisper White card stock

1 piece @ 4 1/2 x 5 inches (11 x 12 1/2 cms)

1 piece @ 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches (5 1/2 x 8 cms)

1 piece @ 5/8's x 2 1/4 inches (1 1/2 x 3 cms)

First lets work on the largest piece of Whisper White card stock.

Using a Versamark ink pad and the bubble/circle effect stamp from Playful Backgrounds stamp set. Stamp three times in the top left hand corner and once in the bottom right hand corner.

Sprinkle over Gold Embossing Powder and using a heat tool. As I always say, make the magic happen :)

Set this piece aside to cool.

With the middle size piece of the Whisper White card stock and the Versamark ink pad. Stamp the lady standing with an umbrella stamp into the middle.

Like before, sprinkle over the Gold Embossing Powder and follow with the heat tool.

Set this aside to cool as well.

Also with your Versarmark ink, press the edges of the middle sized piece of Tranquil Tide card stock into the ink pad. Sprinkle with the embossing powder and use the heat tool. This will give your piece of card stock a gold edging effect. Set aside with the rest.

The sentiment is from the Beautiful You stamp set. 

Using the Tranquil Tide ink pad. Stamp your sentiment on to the middle of the smallest piece of Whisper White card stock.

With dimensionals, back your sentiment piece on to the smallest piece of Tranquil Tide card stock.

Now time to build the card.

Firstly, using dimensionals back the piece of card stock that has the lady stamped in gold onto the piece of Tranquil Tide card stock with the gold edging.

Using tear and tape, place the largest piece of Tranquil Tide card stock onto the card base off centre towards the top left hand corner.

With the largest piece of Whisper White (The one with the gold bubbles) Attach on to the card base, again off centre. Towards the bottom right hand corner. Use tear and tape for this.

Now attach the picture to the card front. Position at the bottom right hand corner of the card, so that it is overlapping the gold bubbles.

Using tear and tape on the right hand side of your sentiment piece and a dimensional on the left. Attach your sentiment just so it overlaps the picture.

Voila! You now have a beautiful card for any celebration :)

As always, everything I have used will be listed below and all photos will be links as to where you can purchase the item through my Stampin' Up web page.

I hope you have enjoyed today's card as much as I have enjoyed sharing it with you.

I hope you have a fab rest of your morning, day, evening, where ever you are :)

Take care & Always sparkle
