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?
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
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!!!!
There is a beautiful new bundle in the upcoming catalog with a very appropriate name-
it is called Serene Garden. It is so lovely.
I used it to make this sympathy card with the new soft colors of Soft Seafoam and Petal Pink.
I love this bundle not only for its images but also for the ability to cut them out with coordinating dies. But, the part I really love is the corner “embossing” die! Isn’t that just awesome? We have a new embossing mat coming out for the Big Shot that I just ordered- I wonder how different it will look when I use it?
The colors are subtle on this card as I wanted a soothing palette for a sympathy card but the popped up flowers add that little bit of texture and dimension to finish of the card. We also have a new All Occasion stamp set called Itty Bitty Greetings coming out that can stand in for the retiring Teeny Tiny Wishes (I love them both- two that are necessary in my stamping room). And…the little die from the Lakeside Framelits is just the ticket for cutting out the little sentiments! A few little pearls on the ends adds a little texture as well.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
