Spotlighting Forever Greenery

Stampin' Up! Spotlighting technique thank you card idea with Forever Greenery and Stitched Rectangle Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Today’s card showcases the “Spotlighting” technique. It is similar to Double Time Stamping except it is done using designer series paper instead of stamping on cardstock. Spotlighting is a quick & easy technique achieved with layering dies. I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies but you can use any Layering Dies to achieve this look. I would like to give a shout out and special thanks to Linda Heller for this technique reminder! I used one of my favorite suites in the new annual catalog, Forever Greenery.

One of my favorite things when creating is to use every scrap of DSP. This is a personal challenge of mine and I love it when there is no waste! This card meets the challenge!

I made this card for my friend and neighbor! I usually fill the urns in front of our house with Kimberly Ferns. (*They don’t need as much water as Boston Ferns and stay healthy and full all summer long!) My friend noticed my empty pots this year and picked up some ferns for me and delivered them to my doorstep! She totally made my day! How perfect is this DSP as a thank you card for her?!

It’s these simple acts of kindness that make such a difference in our lives especially during these difficult times. I would love to hear about acts of kindness in your life….either to or from others! Leave a comment below and share an act of kindness that you did or received.

I hope you’ll give this technique a try!

Have a great day! Stay safe! Stay well!

Stitched Be Mine In Color Note Cards

I was able to order the 2020-2022 In Colors (as well as a few other products) that will make their debut in the new Annual Catalog in June.  I could not wait to play with these new colors! I absolutely LOVE them!  So much so that I had to pull out a heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies to showcase these lovely colors!

I started with a Whisper White note card and added a layer of Shimmery White cardstock that measures 3 1/4 x 4 3/4. I cut a Stitched Circle from the In Color 6 x 6 DSP and adhered it to the Shimmery White. Then I added the ribbon with a few Mini Glue Dots to secure it. The solid cardstock heart is cut using the Stitched Be Mine Die and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The Shimmery White cardstock is popped up on the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few In Color Enamel Dots add the finishing touch with one on the heart and 3 in the bottom corner! It’s quick & easy card for any occasion!
