World of Good - Leaders Swap (1 of 2)

Here are some card shares... these three beautiful card swaps I received, all feature the "World of Good" product suite.  Each project all includes a tiny element of another product available in the 2020-2021 Annual catalog.  Great way of bringing things together. 

Enjoy the share!

Card 1:  Adventure Awaits!   


I wish I could give credit to whomever make the above card but no name was included.   I love how the World of Good DSP paper was cut smaller to 3" x 4" and the Cinnamon Cider mat is 3-1/4" x 4-1/4".  Why do I always think my paper needs to cover the whole card front?  Hmmm... and just think, a 12 x 12 piece of DSP cut to that size will get you 16 pieces or 16 cards.  Here are some other elements used outside of the "World of Good" Suite Collection:

  • label die from "Tasteful Labels"
  • Gilded Gems

Card 2:  You Make the World...


This card was submitted by fellow demonstrator, Michelle Hornback, from Glasgow, KY.  Interesting that she did a rectangle piece of DSP just like the Adventures Awaits card above.  But Michelle measures as follows:

  • DSP 2-3/4 x 3-3/4 matted in Early Espresso that is 3 x 4
  • Card base and top rectangle with the globes is Pool Party
    • card base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored at 4-1/4 on long side
    • top rectangle is 2-1/4 x 3-1/2
    • stamp two globes in Pool Party
  • You will need another Early Espresso Mat cut to 2-1/2 x 3-3/4.  Adhere Pool Party to this.  
  • Wrap "Faux Suede Trim" around DSP and Early Espress piece, tie a know, adhere to card base
  • top Early Espresso and Pool Party stamped with globes, adhere with Dimensionals

Card 3:  You Make The World... Gold Globe


Do you ever see something and say to yourself, "man, why didn't I think of that..."  Well, that was this one.  A beautiful card from Jill Olsen @ Stamping Jill.  She used the Gold Hoops from the Forever Greenery Suite Collection.  What a clever idea.  Here are the card details:

  • Misty Moonlight card base cut 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 and scored at 4-1/4 on the long side
  • Add a layer of Misty Moonlight CS with Dimensionals to card base.  Cut 4 x 5-1/4.  But first, looks like Jill roughed up the edges
  • 3 strips on DSP are all cut to 1-1/2 x 3-3/4 and adhered to the roughed up layer above
  • die cut & adhere Basic Black CS that is 1/2 x 5-1/4 with the decorative die from the World is Good
  • die cut & adhere the globe base in Gold Foil
  • stamp globe image in Cinnamon Cider on Whisper White, stamping off first on a scrap piece of paper. 
  • stamp world in Black Memento
  • die cut circle and adhere with Dimensionals
  • add Gold Hoop with Mini Glue Dots

Adding Dimensions with Foam Adhesive Sheets

Hi there!  Thanks for checking out Creative Card Closet.  

Today, for my SAVI Sunday YouTube video series, I show you how I added some dimension to a die cut using the New Foam Adhesive Sheets.  It is like one giant Dimensional, or pop dot, as some may call them.  It is a great new product in the whole line of Stampin' Up! adhesives.  By the way, check out all our new adhesives including the Stampin' Seal and Stampin' Seal+.  


I love how you can see the shadow on the above picture.  Gives you a good idea of how that die cut is popped off the page. 

Card Details:

  • Card base is Magenta Madness card stock cut 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • Layer of Mango Melody cut 4-1/8 x 5-7/8
  • Cut piece of Rainbow Glimmer Paper large enough to die cut large Bloom die
  • Adhere Foam Adhesive Sheet on back of glimmer paper and die cut
  • Die cut detailed bloom die in Magenta Madness card stock
    • Note:  you can use Adhesive Sheet on back of Magenta Madness BEFORE you cut detailed die
  • Cut strip of Mango Melody 3/4 x 3 or length of word, stamp in Black Memento ink, adhere with Dimensionals

Here a close up .... 


I've included photos of similar project I did but did not use the Foam Adhesive sheets.  

Card stock is Granny Apple Green and Basic Black.
