You lift me up

This card was made for my husband this Father's Day as he's always showing encouragement and support to our son and I thought the sentiment from the Lift Me Up stamp set was appropriate.

Stampin' Up! You Lift Me Up card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts

To create this card I started with a Stampin' Up! Night of Navy card base and layered some Soft Sky card stock and Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper on top.

I then took a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped clouds from the Lift Me Up stamp set in Versamark ink then sponged over the card stock in Soft Sky ink.  The Versamark acted as a resist and you can see the subtle white clouds in the background.  This was then layered onto a piece of Night of Navy card stock and adhered to the card base.  Here's a close up of the Versamark resist technique.

To finish the card I diecut the hot air balloon in Night of Navy card stock using the Up & Away Thinlits dies.  A Dapper Denim baker's twine bow was added to the balloon.  The sentiment is also from the Lift Me Up stamp set and was punched out using the Classic Label punch.

Ribbon of courage card

At some stage during our life we are likely to know a family member or friend affected by cancer.  I made this card for a friend and instead of using the traditional colours, thought I'd use some of her favourite colours to lift her day.

To make the card I started with a Stampin' Up! Thick Whisper White card base and layered some Fresh Fig card stock and Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper on top.

I then created the centre focal piece.  I stamped the sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set in Fresh Fig ink.  I also stamped the large floral ribbon onto some Whisper White card stock and die cut it using the Support Ribbon framelits.  I layered the Whisper White sentiment piece over some Lemon Lime Twist card stock and adhered it to the centre of the card.  I added the diecut Ribbon along with a diecut heart and leaves also from the Support Ribbon framelits set to complete the card.

If you're interested in making a card with the traditional cancer ribbon colours, here's the chart.

To help raise funds for Cancer Council Australia, I will donate $5 for every Ribbon of Courage stamp set/Support Ribbon framelits bundle purchased from me between now and 31 October 2017.  So who's going to get this bundle and help support the fight against cancer?

Daisy birthday card

When I first bought the Stampin' Up! Daisy Punch and co-ordinating Daisy Delight stamp set, I couldn't stop making cards and gift packaging featuring the punched daisy (love it!) - so I challenged myself to make a card using just stamp set only and here it is.



I started with a Stampin' Up! Night of Navy card base.  I then diecut and adhered the Daffodil Delight edge borders which had been made using the Flourish Thinlits border die.  A layer of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper was then adhered on top.

To create the centre focal piece I first punched some Daffodil Delight card stock with the Banner Triple punch and adhered it to the card.  I stamped the Happy Birthday in Night of Navy ink and covered it with a mask before stamping the flowers/stems. This piece was diecut using the Lots of Labels framelits die set and then adhered to the card.  A Daffodil Delight bow completed the card. 

All products used on this card have been listed below - just click on the picture to go to my online store to view or purchase the item.

Leafy sympathy card

It's never the right time to make sympathy cards.  Not long ago, I had several friends for whom I needed to make these cards.

Stampin' Up! Thoughts & Prayers sympathy card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts

To create these cards I used a Stampin' Up! Whisper White card base and embossed the front of the card with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I then stamped the floral branch from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set in both Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz ink onto Whisper White card stock before adhering it onto Wisteria Wonder card stock and the card front.

The sentiment panel is from the Rose Wonder stamp & Rose Garden Thinlits sets and sentiments are from the same stamp set or the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set.  Some Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon completes the card.
