Simple Friendship Card with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder

Hello Everyone,

I’m doing something really simple today.

In the same way Designer Series Paper can make a card front, so too can embossing folders.

Today I have embossed Very Vanilla card stock. For a different look, you can use coloured card stock or designer series paper!

The texture created with these folders is incredible to see.

I have emphasized the detail by applying some ink over the top with a blending brush.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

All that is needed is a sentiment. For this card I used dies as I had the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine out. You could equally use punches.

Some coordinating ribbon completes the card. You can also colour ribbon with Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Write Markers or even Stampin’ ink pads!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Joy to the World

Hello Everyone,

With just three weeks til Christmas, I thought there may be some last minute cards to make, so here’s something that easy to make either as a one off or as a batch….

In the video tutorial I show just one card being made, but the background could be stamped over a full sheet of card stock and trimmed down to make four card fronts.

I wonder which colour combo you like best?

Upline Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

There’s nothing like a colour challenge to get the creativity flowing. This week, my upline challenged the team to use these colours!

There are some stamp sets that really lend themselves to these types of challenge. Label Me Bold is one of those sets. With great images and some versatile sentiments this is a great beginner set too.

I have used my usual small card layer formula to make the card.

The white layer was stamped first with Smoky Slate ink, with the hearts added with Rococo Rose.

A vellum label was cut as an “overlay” and some extra texture.

The sentiment was stamped with Basic Grey ink and adhered with mini dimensionals.

I also made an alternative version, mixing up the colours and swapping the label for the Starburst punch.

And here they are side by side…. Which do you prefer?

Laurie’s Card

Hello Everyone,

I designed a card last week for a colour challenge that I was really pleased with, so when I realised it was a good friends birthday coming up I knew I wanted to make it again.

The original colours consisted of 2 neutrals to which I added a contrasting bright colour.

For this combo I chose Smoky Slate and Merry Merlot from the neutrals. I opted for Mango Melody as the contrasting colour.

I started by preparing a Smoky Slate card base and cutting Merry Merlot and Whisper White card stock layers.

The sentiment was stamped withe Merry Merlot ink and cut out with a Stitched So Sweetly die. This was adhered to vellum also cut with a die.

Before adhering the layers to the base, Smoky Slate ink was used to stamp the foliage. The layers were adhered together and added to the card with dimensionals.

The sentiment was added next, also with dimensionals.

Finally, the flowers were stamped with Mango Melody ink and punched. The petals were shaped before securing to the card.

Label Me Bold

Hello Everyone,

For my first project of 2020, I just had to use this stamp set, Label Me Bold. This is exactly the kind of set I love to work with.

I have 2 examples here, but of course you can use whatever colours you like!

I picked out three colour combos and began building each background starting with the largest image.

Each panel was wrapped with seam binding ribbon and adhered to a coordinating card base.

A vellum label was punched and secured over the ribbon.

A sentiment was stamped and fussy cut then added with mini dimensionals.

Toile Tidings

Hello Everyone,

It seems that we are already hurtling through November so during this busy period quick cards are the order of the day.

These feature the Toile Tidings papers in traditional Real Red and, Garden Green.

The card base was made the coordinating card stock colour.

The Designer Series Paper was layered on to a Very Vanilla card layer and then to the card base with snail adhesive.

I picked out a, sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. Matching ink was used to stamp on to Whisper White card stock in contrast to the Vanilla.

The sentiment was cut with a 1-1/2 inch circle punch and adhered to a 2-1/4 inch circle of vellum. This was added to the card with dimensionals.

A bow was tied from matching ribbon and secured with glue dots.

This is the Garden Green version. On this card I moved the sentiment to the side and added some metallic pearls.

Inspire.Create #054

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a theme challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

And this is what I created!

This challenge was the perfect excuse to use the Christmas Layers Die.

I originally thought I would use white on white but the detail didn’t shine as much as I wanted.

Instead I chose a super bright background and sponged the card stock with Melon Mambo ink.

The sentiment was also stamped with Melon Mambo Ink.

Stitched Rectangles dies were used to cut the sentiment and some vellum.

These were adhered with dimensionals and embellished with Melon Mambo glitter enamel dots.
