Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Go To Greetings Thank You with Video Tutorial

Good morning on this Patriot Day – a day of remembrance.  Do you remember where you were 21 years ago?  What you were doing when you heard that our world as we knew it – with its unassailable borders – had changed forever?  I surely do.  And I remember how I felt in the days and weeks after – the patriotic sense of ONENESS that permeated our country.   We all need to always remember that feeling – and the cause.

Okay.  Seriousness done.  Let’s get down to business! 🙂

I’ve got a pretty Fall thank you card for you today – thanks to the Brightest Beauty stamp set with its bundled Golden Beauty DiesTexture Chic Specialty DSP adds some unexpected Fall colors – and the aptly-named Go To Greetings set makes this a true thank-you card!  Take a look-see:

This fits perfectly with the Global-Design-Project theme challenge. 🙂

I started by adhering a piece of the Texture Chic DSP on a Mango Melody mat for the card front.

Next, I stamped the large leafy image from Brightest Beauty in Versamark Ink several times on a Basic White panel. I sprinkled the images with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool on the high setting.

When the powder was cool, I used Blending Brushes to swirl Mango Melody and Petal Pink ink onto the panel.  Then I wiped off the ink from the embossed portions – creating an “emboss resist” image!

Then I ran the panel thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine in the Timber 3D Embossing Folder.

I used a Paper Trimmer to cut the embossed panel into five 1″-wide strips (there’s a little leftover and I just tossed it!) and then adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue – sort of like pick-up-sticks! 🙂

I used the leaves and flowers dies in the Golden Beauty die set to cut out about a bazillion flowers from Crushed Curry and gold Glimmer Paper and some leaves/stems from Soft Succulent cardstock.

And then – I got busy with my Liquid Glue – adhering ALL the stems – and ALL the flowers!  Some friends from Down Under who were watching my YouTube video last night told me that this looks like an Australian Wattle Bush…

… so do it proud and make it plenty bushy and wattle-y!!

Once the wattles are in place – tie a simple bow from a length of gold Simply Elegant Trim and adhere it with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Petal Pink cardstock, stamp the Brightest Beauty sentiment in Soft Suede – then cut it out with the label die in the Golden Beauty set.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment and the card front was done!  Tip:  put the Dimensionals on the card front – versus on the back of the label die cut.  Makes it a ton easier to avoid the bow! 🙂

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Go To Greetings in Soft Suede on a piece of Basic White cardstock.  In the corner, I stamped the big leafy image from Brightest Beauty in Soft Succulent.  Then I used the flower-fill image in Crushed Curry.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Soft Suede card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Brightest Beauty floral on the front…

…and more Texture Chic Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I think the Texture Chic paper was an unexpected – but…sorta perfect!…choice for a Fall card.  I love how it works with the Brightest Beauty images and Golden Beauty die cut foliage, don’t you??  And – if you haven’t tried the emboss-resist coloring technique – give it a go!  It’s fun and gorgeous!

  1. Thanks for the earworm and the beautiful wattles!

  2. Yikes, sorry that I missed your live AGAIN last night! Such a pretty card, love the colors! My first thought on the Finn photo was food…but the I couldn’t figure out what food you’d be eating in the bedroom. Should have gone with that. 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      Lunch! Staying out of Miss Sonya’s way while she cleans the house! Thanks, Amy! 🙂

  3. Kate

    I remember it very well. And will never forget. Your message is true, and very well said.
    And your card is lovely.

  4. Karen Lang

    In your bedroom??? It must have been a late night snack!! So it’s a “wattle bush”…hmmmmm.

    • stampsnlingers

      Nope – lunch. On Fridays when Miss Sonya is here – we try to get out of her way at lunch time – so…I sit in the rocker in my room eating my lunch! Finn “helps”! LOL!

  5. Faith Simpson

    LOL……Absolutely Finn……I was close……not the crate part, but the wanting a treat part….treat, or bite, or peppermint. or a plate lick….

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – “food” is almost always a good guess! Thanks, Faith! 🙂

  6. Darlene Coin

    Where did you get the tweezers? Watching replay. I didn’t know the flower is called wattle berries. Thanks for letting us know. I wish stampin up would name the flowers in their description. I know I have always wondered what some of the stamps in the collections are that are not very well known.

    • stampsnlingers

      That would be cool, for sure! The tweezers are from EK Tools – and I just got them on Amazon. I suspect you could find them in a Hobby Lobby or Michaels… Thanks! 🙂

    • Carolyn Kendall

      Those little “berries” are actually fluffy flowers. Australia has a special Wattle Day on 1 September when all the trees are blooming. This is a gorgeous set and one that I had to purchase as soon as I saw it.

      • stampsnlingers

        Oh shoot – my bad! I was calling them berries and they’re flowers! 🤦‍♀️ Whatever they are – they’re really pretty! Glad you got the set, Carolyn 🙂
