NATURE'S BEAUTY Stamp Set #150528 was chosen by Shari Wicks, fellow demonstrator, to create this soft, sweet bunny card which I cased. LOVE IT!!

Do you recognize this Designer Paper?? It's MONSTER BASH DESIGNER SERIES PAPER #150447! It's PERFECT!

 

20191110_164156

This is a 4 x 4" Gate Fold card: cut base card 11 x 4" and then score at 2, 3-3/4, 7-1/4, and 9". This fits in a Stampin' Up! medium envelope. (Don't use a square envelope because it's extra US postage.)

20191110_164126

The realistic bunny is colored with Stampin' Up! Blends alcohol markers: Light Smoky Slate and Ivory. To create the snow, I dotted on SNOWFALL ACCENT PUFF PAINT #150691 and sprinkled it with ICE STAMPIN' GLITTER #150445. Then I heated the puff paint with a heat tool and the glitter adhered. You can also adhere the glitter with SHIMMERY CRYSTAL EFFECTS #150892.

Sentiment is from MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL #147702. This is the perfect holiday card for a nature lover!! TRY IT!

How to Corner Emboss on Cards

20190603_085717

I found this clever embossing trick by Diana Langman. I have never seen this before. 

20190620_100354

1. Emboss the Purple Posy card stock with Subtle 3D Embossing Folder #151775.

2.  Emboss the same card stock with Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder #151823 by inserting one corner into the machine. STOP just before the outside edges of the embossing folder hit the machine. Back the embossing folder out of the machine. Be careful not to damage the embossing folder by continuing to emboss too far. 

20190603_085731

This is the absolutely gorgeous Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper #149100. It's very Monet-like and impressionistic!

I LOVE this card!! Free as a Bird Stamp Set #149468 is an OPEN IMAGE design. Simply take a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker #100082 and color the images black to create a silhouette!

Don't worry about being perfect, because the image goes on top. Next, stamp your image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Fill in all open designs with the black marker. Sunset marker colors: Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Gorgeous Grape. You get LOTS OF IMPACT!! TRY IT!

How to Make an Instant Card

We all need quick cards! Let designer paper be your focal point. Cut a design paper 6" by 1-1/4" or 1-1/2". Attach it diagonally to your card front. Look closely. I added two score lines about 1/8" apart and parallel to the sides of the strip. This adds a bit of interest and texture.

How to stamp a background

20190427_100833

Bloom by Bloom stamp set #148820 is VERSATILE! Try creating your own background. Select 3-4 colors you like together. Start with the largest image using one of the colors. Stamp it spaced fairly evenly on your layer. Second, use the next to largest image and another color. Finish with the smallest image to "fill in between" the previous shapes. Secret: if there is an area that you are NOT satisfied with...cover it with the sentiment! 

20190427_100850

Since the background is busy, I used a solid color to frame the sentiment. It helps the eye "rest on the word."

Merry Christmas to All Gift Card Holder

20180824_082939

Everyone needs Gift Card Holders for the Holiday. This one is very easy!

20180824_082958

Cut base card stock 4-1/4" x 11", and score at 5-1/2" and 8-1/2".  Use about a 1" circle punch to punch a thumb hole in the edge of the card stock. This edge folds to the inside of the card and is attached only on the side edges with strong adhesive like Tear & Tape #138995. Attach the inside layer that is 4" X 2-1/2". Last, close your card and attach the front layer so it hides the inside layer. The lovely sentiment is from the Merry Christmas to All Stamp Set #147702.

Enjoy Life Stamp Set

20180918_110621

I enjoy creating Sunset/Sunrise cards! "Enjoy Life" Stamp Set #148190 is a lovely silhouette stamp set to use with this FUN technique.

20180918_100214

Here is my process which allows me to reproduce the same card multiple times:

    *Punch or die cut a generous shape in the center of a quarter sheet of scrap cardstock.

    *Lay this template on your cardstock and hold in place. (I just use my fingers.)

    *Using a Sponge Dauber #133773 pounce on an ink pad to collect color, then scrub ink into the opening of the template, using a horizontal motion going beyond the edges of the template.  Blend one color into the next if desired.

    *Mark your colors for use at a later time and keep in the template in your stamp case.

    *Stamp a silhouette in black ink within the window before removing the template.

20180918_110644

This is a lovely, thoughtful sentiment! Try sponging a Sunrise/Sunset!

20180503_160729The Copper Foil #142020 layer of this card made TWO layers!! I used my Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer #126889 to cut the smaller layer from the center of the larger layer. The Designer Paper totally covers the hole!

Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder

20180502_181700

Sometimes you want to create something soft and special. I really like the look of this simple sponging technique!

20180502_181627

I used the DEBOSSED side of the Lovely Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder that is part of the May 2018 Early Release Promo. I prefer Sponge Daubers #133773, but you can also use Stampin' Sponges #141337. Pounce the dauber on a ink pad to collect ink. Then gently rub onto the image. It's very easy because it is "inexact." Rubbing lightly is best - you can always add more color if desired.

20180502_181644

The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede ink instead of a bold black ink. Try this simple coloring trick!


How to create glossy greetings

20180504_151436

A GLOSSY greeting for someone special! Cut 2-3 sentiments using the Happy Birthday Thinlits #143700. Stack them exactly on top of each other with adhesive. Simply heat emboss the greeting two times, using Versamark ink pad and CLEAR embossing powder. A tweezers is very helpful. Attach to your card.

20180504_151500

This angle really shows the SHINE!! The sentiment seems to jump off the paper!

TRY IT!


Lovely as a Tree

20180415_134958

Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set has been in the Stampin' Up! Catalog for a longggg time because it is a true CLASSIC. Today, I used it to try the BLACK ICE TECHNIQUE: Lightly drag an Archival Black Ink Pad over metallic foil paper. Then stamp your image in black ink. Dry completely with a heat tool. Heat emboss the entire layer using Versamark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder. I personally would have named this technique "tintype," because it looks so much like early photography!!

20180415_135027

This one uses Gold Foil. SECRET: I got a big blob of black ink on this foil and didn't like it. So...I punched out the trees and threw away the blob!! LOL I actually like this layout!

Don't these look old fashioned??

I scored the left edge of the vellum and wrapped it around the back of the layer to attach. I "hid" a glue dot on the back of a flower center to keep the Vellum flap in place.

Another version - I used Blushing Bride Cardstock and Light Calypso Coral Blends on Vellum. This is a special sympathy card that has already gone in the mailbox.

Try this good old "Stained Glass" Technique!! I'm sorry Blends are sold out at the moment, but never fear - they are coming! Keep them on your Wish List!

Use an exacto knife to gently open the seam of the box so you can lay it flat.

Insert one half of the box into the embossing folder with the EDGE of the embossing folder at the top score mark of the top of the box. Repeat for the other half of the box.

Stamper's Space Saving Tip

20171124_094416

Let's start the New Year with one of my favorite SPACE SAVING TIPS! Some clear mount stamp sets come in two cases because the uncut rubber takes up space.

20171124_094433

After I attach the images labels, I put all images into the same case.  20171124_094801

The case covers slip easily out of the plastic sleeve of the case. I combine the two case covers into one, making sure I have an index on the spine of the box. A little trimming and gluing and I have ONE perfectly complete stamp case instead of TWO!!

20171124_094649

It's important to have an accurate spine index so you see all the images and sentiments when you are searching. Try this!

This adorable Petal Palette Bundle will be available WED., Jan. 3, 2018 in the NEW OCCASIONS CATALOG! GET READY!
