Pals Blog Hop – You Are a Star Special Occasions

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Use a Stamparatus to position and stamp the “so proud of you” sentiment in Petal Pink ink onto a 1 x 4 piece of Whisper White card stock. 

Adhere to the card with Snail Adhesive (on the Designer Series Paper) and Stampin’ Dimensionals (on the Whisper White card stock).

POP OF PERSONALITY!  Add two Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels as shown. 

PERFECT POLISH! Use an envelope liner die (Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Layers Dies), a die-cutting and embossing machine, along with a 5 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper to create an envelope liner.  Adhere to the inside of a Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Medium Envelope with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

TIP: To avoid embossing and plate marks, I dedicate a relatively clean bottom cutting plate for envelope liners.  Flip the pattern over and cut on the opposite side.  You can use a bone folder to help any soften lines.
