Elegantly Said and a new Online Class

 Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is going well. This week is a tough one for me as my hubby and I were supposed to have been in Maui for the Stampin' Up! incentive trip. Sadly, being in Canada and in lockdown, we are unable to travel, so we and the other 40+ Canadian achievers, as well as those from the European and South Pacific, have to watch from afar as US achievers who were able to travel get spoiled without us. It feels a little like Cinderella not being allowed to attend the ball, but my fairy godmother forgot to show up. :(

So, to cheer myself up, I play with paper and ink! This week I am all about the Elegantly Said bundle from the new Annual Catalogue. The entire suite is utterly gorgeous with stunning metallic papers, a lovely stamp set and super-versatile punch. Check out this pretty...

There is so much yummy on this card it's hard to know where to start! I began with an embossed Very Vanilla panel for the background. I used the STUNNING new Pretty Flowers embossing folder. This was the first time I cracked it open and WOW...what a stunner!

The DSP panel is from the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP pack. It comes with a white background, making it perfect for the direct-to-paper technique to add beautiful colour. Here I used Blushing Bride ink and love the look with the gold foil.

The sentiment is heat embossed in gold on a Very Vanilla scalloped rectangle die-cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I added little hints of the paisley image from the stamp set in Blushing Bride in the corners. Behind the sentiment, I added a floral die-cut made with the Artistic Dies. I used the new Rose Gold Specialty paper and wow...I need to order more of that stuff! By way of embellishment, I added some Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon and a few Gold Metallic Pearls.

On the inside of the Very Vanilla card base I stamped some flowers in Blushing Bride ink. I omitted a sentiment for now, as it could work for a wedding, anniversary or bridal shower.

I'll be demonstrating this card and two others in today's Live @ Five video over on my Facebook Business page at 5 pm ET. I hope you'll join me, as I'll also be giving a sneak peek at the projects for my new online class featuring this suite as well! You can read all about the details of this class on my Upcoming Classes & Events page. If you miss me live you can catch the replay shortly afterwards on my YouTube channel.

Thanks for stopping by this week. Have a great one!
