Everything is Rosy for PP440

Hello and Happy Sunday stamping friends! This week at The Paper Players, the lovely Jaydee has a fun theme challenge for us to create with: “Life is Better with Friends..."
I don’t know about you but sending cards to friends is one of my favorite things. There doesn’t have to be an occasion other than to simply say hello. I really enjoyed this week’s theme as it is a great reminder to send a card or two. There is nothing better than finding a handmade card in your mailbox, is there? 
For my card, I decided to use some of my favorite products right now, the Everything is Rosy Product Medley. This is a limited collection of products that Stampin’ Up!® is offering from May 1st and is available while supplies last. This product medley contains so much product to create with and the color combo of navy, pink and rose gold is fabulous. The sentiment in the stamp set is one of my favorites right now and I think is it just a great sentiment to share with a friend for so many occasions, including just telling them how amazing they are. 

The color of pink included in the kit itself is a little brighter and more closely relates to Melon  Mambo, but I decided to use one of the navy and rose gold patterns of Designer Series Paper and accent it with one of the new In Colors that will be coming out on June 4th: Rococo Rose.
I have actually been creating with these products for a couple of months now as I had the amazing opportunity to present them last month at the Stampin’ Up!® OnStage event here in San Antonio, TX. I absolutely LOVE this Product Medley! I’ve listed everything that comes in this Product Medley at the end of this post. You really get a LOT of product. 

One of the items that comes in the kit that I can’t stop using is the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint! For this card, I mixed a couple of drops of the shimmer paint with some rubbing alcohol (70% tends to work the best, I’ve found) in a Stampin’ Spritzer. Give it a really good shake to mix it up. Then, I spritzed the paint/alcohol mixture on a Whisper White Layering Circle die and not only did it apply some awesome sparkle, but it actually added the soft pink color to accent the card. 
This card ended up becoming a “fun fold” card of sorts because I really wanted to use that decorative die featuring the leaves and berries. I cut it out of the rose gold foil paper and I love how it looks with that beautiful Designer Series paper. I also added some stamped and die cut accents around the sentiment to dress it up a little. That tag with the rose gold foil accent is part of the kit and I just love how it adds that extra pop of detail around the sentiment. 

Card Measurements: 
  • Night of Navy Card Base - 5-1/2” x 7-1/4”, scored at 4-1/4” 
  • Rococo Rose Cardstock - 2-7/8” x 5-1/8” 
  • Everything is Rosy Designer Series Paper - 2-3/4” x 5” 
  • Whisper White Cardstock (inside card) - 4-1/8” x 5-3/8” 
  • Rococo Rose (embossed with Subtle Embossing Folder) - 3/4” x 5-3/8” 

Finally, here is a look inside the card. I added a small strip of Rococo Rose cardstock to tie the colors together along with a stamped image and sentiment. I added some Shimmer Paint detail to the little “berries” on the stamped image. This is super-easy! Simply shake up your bottle of paint, open it up and then take a sharpened pencil and lightly dip it into the lid of the paint and “dot” some onto the image. Remember to give the paint a little time to dry completely before closing your card. 

I hope you will join us this week over at The Paper Players and share a project using the theme challenge. We’d love to see what you come up with! You can link up your project through Noon PST on Friday May 10th, 2019.
