Free United Through Creativity Download Available NOW! Have you had a look at this yet? I printed it out yesterday and have already made a few projects with it. I love that there are outline images and coloured Sentiments so you can create so many amazing projects from the single Download. Just print the pages you need for the project you have in mind, or, like me, print them all so they are ready to go at a moment’s notice.
This image says everything that is needed for World Diversity Day. Young and old standing proud next to, and embracing, each other. Surely the world would be a better place if we could all be blind to our differences and simple focus on what we share. Some simple colouring with Stampin’ Blends gives you the opportunity to make this as subtle or as bright as you wish. The sentiment comes in a long strip, but I wanted to cut it down, so clipped the words apart and then fussy cut the ‘together’.
I used the new Stitched Greenery background die on some Vellum for some added texture over the Balmy Blue card base. A Soft Seafoam layer and a Stitched Rectangle for the image take this project to a special level. A few Basic Rhinestones finishes this project off well.
This image is PERFECT for send to a friend who may be going through rough times, especially at the moment when hugs are allowed, but still come with a Covid warning. This time I added Designer Series Paper to lift the background a little. The image is cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die and added with Dimensionals. The sentiment is simply trimmed to size and added flat to the card front. Again, a few Basic Rhinestones help to lift the project.
This couple are really easy to colour, I used just 5 Blends Combos, but you could go wild and make these a really bright statement image. I wanted to add something, but not too much, between the image and the layers, so decided to add some vellum. I used the Stitched with Whimsy dies. These add some subtle stitching, which I then cut around for the irregular edge. And, yes, I did add more Basic Rhinestones, they really do add so much to a project.
The final project I made yesterday uses the images that reflect the United Kingdom. I very nearly used the ‘We Belong Together’ sentiment again (because we do!), but decided to use one of the coloured sentiments instead. Again, I used Vellum and the Stitched With Whimsy dies. My colour scheme for the card front were a deliberate Red, White and Blue to reflect the Union Flag. ‘Fun Fact’; did you know that the United Kingdom flag should technically only be called the ‘Union Jack’ when it is flown from the Jack Stay on a ship at sea? The correct name is the Union Flag, although the terms tend to be interchangeable these days.
The card above was made during my regular Saturday morning YouTube Live and uses the image for France. I die cut it using the Scalloped Contours Dies and fed some of the Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon through the holes. A really easy card to replicate, just some simple colouring!
This is the other card I made on my YouTube Live (linked below), using the Apple Pie Image for the USA. I was not sure about the ‘You’re the best thing since sliced bread’ sentiment, so I did some ‘editing’! Mounted on Poppy Parade and So Saffron card. This time I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies again. Such a useful set of dies.
So, what do you think? Are you going to download the document and make some projects with it? There are images to reflect all the countries that Stampin’ Up! covers, as well as all of the languages. I will be using more images during my Saturday YouTube Live today and will then add a link to the REPLAY here.
