        For my BLOG HOP I am sharing some quick & easy cards with our NEW All Together Collection. This Suite was recently released in March 2022. Showing you that all you need is just Stamps, Ink , Paper  & some extras to make Stunning Cards. 

    I do hope you Enjoy & Like what I have created for you, 

 All Together Collection

The Card bas is a standard C6 cards base (AUS & UK), I used 2 different cuts. 
1st Basic White Thick Cardstock, card base is the standard 14.8cm x 21cm scored @ 10.5cm.
Cut Basic White cardstock mat (portrait style cards) 10cm x 14.3cm. 
Stripes and Splatters 3D Embossing Folder, Splatters Folder. 
All Together 6x6 DSP strip 2cm x 14.3cm. 
All Together DSP linking hands, fussy cut.
Here For You Dies, You Matter die cut in Basic Black. 
Brights Stampin' Write Markers 
Natural Tones Stampin' Blends

    I was inspired to make this card as we have just Celebrated our LGBTQIA+ Midsummer Carnival & the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras. And as it is about inclusivity, I thought that the All Together Collection was perfect. I hope you enjoy creating this card. 

  1.  Basic Card Base in Basic White, 
  2. Cut a Layer in Basic White and then run it through the embossing machine in the Splatters Folder, then had to shift the card layer over so that I could emboss the remainder of the card.
  3. With the Strip of All Together DSP, use the Brights Stampin' Write Markers in the rainbow colours, and colour the hearts.
  4. Then stick the strip to the embossed cardstock over where the line that was created when re-embossing, to hide it. 
  5. Die Cut the You Matter die in Basic Black cardstock, you can use the adhesive sheet to make it easier to stick the the embossed cardstock layer.
  6. With the NEW Tones Stampin Blends, you will need SU900, 500, 400 & 100 to colour the hands and arms. fussy cut the hands from the DSP.  Add Dimensionals to the back.
  7. With Dimensionals adhered, place  onto the embossed cardstock layer. 
  8. The White Embossed Cardstock adhere dimensionals to the back and adhere it to the Card base.
  9. Stamp whatever sentiment you wish in the centre of the card. 
  10. Embellish with Iridescent Rhinestones. And Voila .. The card is done. 

        Thankyou all so much for stopping by. I have had a BLAST creating this card for you and for my Blog Hop.
