I am so excited about the release of Sincere Sentiments! I love this new line so much! There are so many sweet phrases included in the stamps and stickers, perfect for creating different kinds of cards!
For the first card, I wanted to showcase the sentiment from the Sincere Sentiments Wonderful You Stamp. I chose blue, pink, yellow, and green papers from the Warm and Cool Solids Paper Stacks, used the Nesting Tags Metal Die to cut tags, then heat embossed the sentiments in white.
I arranged tags on the card and adhered them with foam dots. I also heat embossed the outline “you” in white on black paper and cut it out with the Sincere Sentiments Wonderful You Metal Die. I placed the “you” die cut piece on the center of the card, along with the Sincere Sentiments Wonderful You Acetate Stickers. For a finishing touch, I added the adorable Gold Puffy Heart and Star Stickers to embellish my card. I absolutely love how it turned out!
For my second card, I again wanted to showcase the sentiments from the Sincere Sentiments Wonderful You Stamp. I still used the heat embossing technique, but I decided to use banners instead of tags as my main piece.
Don’t forget Elle’s Studio has the wonderful Banners Metal Dies and Layered Card Metal Die that work perfectly with this collection! I used the Layered Card Metal Die to cut the purple and white stitched layers and then used the Banners Metal Dies to create colorful banners to which I heat embossed the sentiments in white.
Before placing my banners, I adhered a doily and tied silver and white hemp cord to the left side of the card. Then, I arranged all the banners on the top of the doily and I also added a red and light blue Wonderful You Chipboard Banners for more interest. I popped the “you” up with foam dots and added Gold Puffy Heart and Star Stickers to put the finishing touches on my card.
For the third card, I started with a soft pink paper from the Warm Solids Paper Stack and folded it in half to form the base of my card. After that, I used the XOXO Paper Stack and Pocket Envelope Metal Die to create the envelope as my main theme, and began my embellishing.
The sentiment was created with the Wonderful You Stamp and Wonderful You Acetate Stickers. Then, I used foam dots to highlight my title. I also popped up the medal from the Proud Of You Die Cuts with foam dots. For the finishing touch on this card, I added many hearts from the Wonderful You Acetate Stickers.
The last one is a tag! I started by heat embossing “YOU” in gold on white paper and created a die cut peek-a-boo effect with the Wonderful You Metal Die. I embellished the tag with beautiful flowers from the Autumn Die Cuts and the black Wonderful You Chipboard Banner.
It’s super fast and easy to create these cards and the tag using our new Sincere Sentiments: Wonderful You release! If you have a chance, try it out!
