SU Healing Hugs

November 26, 2018

Pssst…

Don’t forget that the Online Extravaganza is up and running!

I made a sweet Get Well card using the SU Healing Hugs stamp set.

Here is a close up of the gold metallic thread and sequins.

I even got fancy and did the inside!

To get the leaves to be behind the flower I used a masking technique.
Here are a few pics of the steps.

First, you stamp a flower on a sticky note and then fussy cut it out.

Next you stamp the flower on the panel.

Next, place the mask over the stamped flower and stamp the leaves and another flower.

Use the mask again on the other flower so you can stamp leaves that appear to be under the flower again.
To be honest, since my mask was not absolutely perfect when I stamped the second flower- see the vanilla space between the flowers above?
I just figured out a way to cover it. And that boo-boo became a great element of the card, don’t you think?

I used the Lakeside Framelits to die cut the sentiment.
I wanted it shorter so I just cut it and then laid it closer to the right end and die cut it again:) I also used the Petals and More Thinlits to make the lattice detailed die cut under the sentiment.

SU Wishing You Well Sneak Peek

August 22, 2018

I just fell in love with the delicate little bow in the SU Wishing You Well stamp set.
Has that ever happened to you? You are drawn to the set for one little image?

Of course, then I fall in love with all the other images!

I adore the lightly drawn sentiments- that stamp beautifully!
I thought the set paired well the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.
As you can see I pulled the colors from the DSP- Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze, and Grapefruit Grove.
Although you can find Grapefruit Grove pearls in the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls,
I just colored my pearls with the Light Calypso Coral Alcohol Based Stampin’ Blends.

The base of my tent card is 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side.
The DSP is a 4″ square. The white panel is 2-3/4″ x 4 bordered by a 3″ x 4-1/4″ Cajun Craze Panel.

SU Abstract Impressions Bundle

August 3, 2018

I got a card from my friend, Sarah, who used the butterfly
from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits.
It was so clean and eye-catching that I had to CASE it!

I loved how she used the NEW Big Shot Embossing Mats to create the bottom of the card.
The first thing I did was cut out the butterfly, then I did the bottom embossing as follows:
You just place the die on the cardstock, secure it in place with some Washi tape around the back -see photo below.

Now to emboss, use this sandwich from BOTTOM to TOP-

  1. 1. Big Shot platform,
    2. Acrylic Plate,
    3. Cardstock with die in place face down- see photo below,


4. Gray embossing mat,
5. White embossing plate

TIP: Always keep one CLEAN acrylic plate for times you have to put the “good” side down when using the Big Shot. It keeps the cardstock from getting the acrylic pad scratches etched in it. Has that ever happened to you?  With this mat embossing, it probably won’t etch your cardstock but when CUTTING with the cardstock good side face down, it can. You can protect the cardstock by putting a piece of copy paper down first if your acrylic plate is heavily used to hopefully keep those etched marks off your pretty card:)

Here is a comparison of the how deep the impression is with the two embossing mats-
the thicker gray one embossed this way:

the thinner blue one embossed this way:

 

I bet we agree that the thicker mat gave a nicer defined impression
but I can think of other times where a
less deep subtle impressed area would look nice, maybe on a larger background surface-
like the whole corner floral die that is in this bundle?

Here is the card I received from Sarah- thanks for the inspiration!

SU Dandelion Wishes Video Tutorial

July 9. 2018

Remembering picking those pretty dandelion bouquets as a kid…
and then being told they were just weeds? LOL.
Well, they must be special with all the ways they are displayed…
in photos, on clothing, home decor, and of course, on stamps!

I have a video for you showing how to make a tri-panel image as the focal point on a card.

Here is the finished card from the video:

Now here is the same card that has all the layers run through the Big Shot using
the Subtle Embossing Folder.

Quite a different effect that Subltle Embossing Folder makes, huh?

 

Measurements:
Soft Suede Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Focal panel border 3″ x 4-1/4″, 2-1/2″ square for sentiment
Very Vanilla outside and inside: 4″ x 5-1/4″, Tri-panel  2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ cut into (3) 1-1/4″ pieces on the 3-3/4″ side, 2-1/2″ square for sentiment
