I also love the Subtle Embossing Folder, it is like I have a whole new kind of paper made from my cardstock. It looks wonderful as an embossed layer, and it looks really cool when you run through a stamped panel using the folder!

Remember, this card I made using Accented Blooms and the Tailored Tag Punch?
I cased myself and changed up the color to the NEW Blueberry Bushel with it’s coordinating DSP and popped up a cardstock tag with a HB sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.
I really like the bold pop of color that the punched out tag creates on this card:)
Such an easy image to stamp with so many sentiments that can fit inside that tag space…
some day I am going to color all those flowers!!!!
How many of you took notice of the BEAUTIFUL bird on page 169 of the Annual Catalog?
Isn’t it just so calming and peaceful? Perfect image for so many occasions and
for The Paper Papers Challenge # 398– Birds!
I could not wait to get it and try the watercoloring technique that SU explains on that page. I did watercolor it but I am still working on it. Want to see some gorgeous watercoloring painting? Check out my friend, Jodi McKinney’s blog at theLifeInBetween.me. She is a lovely person to follow:)
I will have to channel my inner Jodi and finish it up! Instead of watercoloring, I pulled out my favorite tools- my stampin’ blends! I am not a great shader etc. but I feel like an artist when I use my alcohol markers that perfectly match my SU cardstock, dsp, and inks. No having to buy tons of different shades of other brand markers to find a match with my SU stuff! So glad I never got into that- I would have bought so many markers!!! Instead, I just play with my stampin’ blends knowing that they fit my needs:)
I am still recovering from an action-packed weekend with my super, awesome, and most beloved stampers in Pittsburgh at our Catalog Kick Off Party. I wonder if they have recovered? I make those chickadees work hard at class… 6 cards using great new bundles and techniques. I try to make every moment count when we are together so they did get to play with everything especially the Stamparatus this past weekend!!!
I have a simple card for you today using the SU Springtime Impressions Thinlits and
the Stitched All Around Bundle. This sentiment is versatile and could be used for a wedding, graduation, or even a birthday card, don’t you think?
Die cutting the Copper Foil Sheets instantly glams up a simple card,
and copper embossing finishes it off!
Here’s an alternative design using Very Vanilla cardstock with the copper embossing
standing out on the tone on tone background.
A simple card…that has a few little details to make it special…
For my card base, I used the already printed Delightfully Detailed Notecards ready for stamping or layering with the Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Designer Paper. There are 20 colorwashed cards in the package -5 each of 4 designs in Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss. The Notecards are packaged with 20 Very Vanilla envelopes as well.
I used the Stitched All Around Bundle to stamp the sentiment and cut it with a coordinating die. I used another beautiful die cut from the set of framelits to layer under the sentiment. I popped a circle of Mint Macaron under the sentiment die to show off the details on it. And, then under it all, I used a piece of the lattice pattern from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper.
So many neat items in the Delightfully Detailed Suite….
