Stampin' Up Flourish & Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Card

Ya' gotta' love Michigan's weather.  We are going back into the 80's again.  Next week, we are supposed to have some days in the 90's.  Wowzers!  That's going to be hot for us!

Today, I'll be sharing a card that I designed using Stampin' Up's new Flourish and Sunshine WishesThinlits Dies and SU's new Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate.

Let's take a look:

I...LOVE...Stampin' UP!  LOVE, LOVE and LOVE SU's new Flourish Thinlits Dies.

My card base is Watermelon Wonder Cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored and folded at 5-1/2".

I trimmed out a piece of SU's Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper 1" x 5-1/2" and adhered it down the center of my card base using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I'm also in LOVE with SU's new Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate Sheets.  It's gold on one side and looks Silver on the other side.  

Any acetate is extremely hard to photograph because of the glare.  I tried really hard; but, you can still see my camera in the top of the acetate.  Sorry!

Anyways, I die cut the long strip die from Night of Navy Cardstock and adhered it over the 1" strip of DSP using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I adhered one of SU's Gold Metallic Foil Doilies centered on the 1" strip of DSP using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Using SU's 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch twice; once with Night of Navy Cardstock and once with the Gold Acetate.  I adhered the acetate to the Night of Navy piece with some strategically placed Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.  Then I adhered them to the center of my card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I die cut the large, gorgeous flourish and some of the smaller dies in SU Night of Navy Cardstock.  Beautiful!
Then, I hacked up the large flourish into smaller pieces!!!  =)  The smaller pieces were adhered to my card as shown in the the pictures.

I will be getting a lot of use out of these dies.
I adhered one of SU's new Gold Enamel Shapes to the center of each small flower die cut.

And, I haven't even used the coordinating stamp set yet called Flourishing Phrase.  The stamp set has lots of sentiments and phrases along with the large large, a double leaf and a large flower.  

There's just so much cool new products that I don't know where I want to start first.

I die cut the word hope from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies 4 times and adhered them together using my Fine Tip Glue Bottle.  Then, I adhered them to the center of my acetate.

This card is so much prettier in person and so much fun to make with all the flourishes. 

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
