I love a bundle that includes a punch! What about you?
So, when the Varied Vases Bundle came out, I was so excited. It is so cute!
There are so many images in the stamp set but I opted to use DSP to punch out my vases on this one!
So…isn’t that border an interesting touch? It comes from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set.
Look how cute the 9 bordering images are…for reference, I used the larger rectangle on this card.
I could not decide if I liked the vases sititng a little bit on the the wood or flush with the wood?
Which one do you like better?
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
Remember there are some Specials going on this month….
Taking a break from flowers, and using an awesome, rustic stamp set called Country Home.
I was inspired by the catalog sample on page 163 of the Annual Catalog.
A great card for the guys!
Wondering how I made that rectangle frame?
I started with a 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock. I stamped it with the Hardwood Background Stamp.
Then, I used the rectangle die from the Barn Door Framelits to cut out the opening.
I stamped the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel with grass using Old Olive ink and then embossed the horse with Copper Embossing Powder.
Next, I ran the Very Vanilla panel through the Big Sot using the Subtle Embossing Folder. Notice how cool the copper looks?
I roughed up my edges with the retired SU Distressing Tool and sponged some Soft Seude ink on the edges.
I love how the sponged ink seeped in the subtle creases.
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
I just love black and white as a design element and adding in a pop of any color just makes me happy! Adding in red is even better!
I was playing around with my SU Floral Frames Bundle and came up with this:
Simply stamp the foliage image and run it through the Big Shot with the NEW Tufted Embossing Folder. Stamp some posies with the returning color Poppy Parade ink and pop them up with some stamping dimensionals. Oh, and I used the Layering Circles to accent the sentiment.
The leaves could have been colored in any of our great greens but I chose to keep in simple with just the three colors. I love the Poppy Parade color- such a lovely bright red so different from Real Red which is one of my faves. Red is an important color to have on hand and having two beautiful Stampin’ Up reds is super!
I just used a marker to dot in the middle of the flowers to mimic the front.

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!
