Beautiful Moments – Celebration

How can it already be Thursday?  I am still catching up, but I wanted to share the card I created for my Inque Spot Studio Challenges to keep you stamping from last weekend.

I chose to participate in today’s Facebook Stampin’ Through the Catalog suggested stamp set, Hello Beautiful and picked the colors from the current Global Design Project (#333) Challenge.

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Smoky Slate cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (4⅛” x 5⅜”) Basic White cardstock.
    • A selection of Shapes, from the Hello Beautiful stamp set, were stamped both full strength and stamped-off once randomly with Mint Macaron, Balmy Blue and Garden Green inks.
    • Some of the “white” space was filled in with an assist from two shapes found in the retired Work of Art stamp set with Smoky Slate ink.
    • Some of the Small Detail stamps were selected and stamped to the collage with Basic Gray and Memento Tuxedo Black inks for added interest.
    • The center of the stamped collage panel was die-cut with the (3” x 4⅜”) Stitched Rectangles Die.  
  • Bottom Rectangle: (3½” x 2”) Mint Macaron cardstock dry-embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Center Panel: (3” x 4⅜”) previously die-cut from the Background Panel Collage and dry-embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Shape – Hexagon: (2” x 2¼”) Balmy Blue cardstock scrap die-cut with the Hexagon die from the Beautiful Shapes Dies set and then dry-embossed with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Sentiment Banner: (3⅛” x ¾”) Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The sentiment, this call for a Celebration, was stamped with Garden Green ink.
    • The ends of the Banner were flagged using the Banners Pick-a-Punch.
    • The Banner was then dry-embossed with the retired Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

All of the elements were adhered.  I prefer to have the edges of my card base show as it creates a nice frame for the rest of the card, therefore I often have an extra panel that layers on to my card base.

  1. The Background Panel Frame was adhered to the card base.
  2. The Bottom Rectangle was adhered to the bottom of the Center Panel.
  3. The Center panel was popped up with Dimensionals and added over the Background Panel opening.
  4. The Sentiment Banner was centered over the Hexagon and adhered.
  5. The Hexagon was popped up over the Center panel.

This is a card full of texture and dimension both with the choice of stamps used and most definitely with the use of Textured Embossing Folders.  A very eclectic combination that works!

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!
