SU Hold on to Hope Emboss Resist

February 23, 2018

May I say that the NEW Sale-a-bration Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper is GORGEOUS!!!!
I MEAN ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!!
And it is fun to emboss resist, too!
Look how beautiful the silver and gold shine through after I sponged Memento Black ink over it!!
My friend, Linda Heller, brought this old technique of emboss resist using this paper to my attention last week:)

It is easy to see how I made this card…I just die cut the larger gold cross and adhered the thinner silver cross to it.
I added a Clear Faceted Gem to the middle of the silver cross and added a banner embossed in gold. Simple yet elegant!

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

NEW Sale-a-bration Items! and SU Hold on to Hope

February 16, 2018

Happy Friday, friends!

Starting today and running through March 31, 2018-
more items have been added to the Sale-a-bration Line-Up!
You can see them HERE.
You can get the Eclectic Expressions Stamp Set or
the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper  FREE for a $50 purchase.

 

And for a $100 purchase, you can  get the Blossoming Basket Bundle:)

I also wanted to share  a “Celebration” card  with you using the Hold on to Hope stamp set.
I used the Sale-a-bration Shimmer Ribbon- the silvery shimmer on the black paired well with the
rhinestones in the middle of the flowers made from the Tree Builder Punch!

I call it a “celebration” card because you get to pick the celebration…
is it a birthday? a graduation? a baptism? a christening?
a confirmation? or may be even a bridal shower?

Don’t you just love those little corner images?
I can see those cuties adorning many a card in the future!

SU Petal Palette Silver

February 14, 2018

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!

In the spirit of LOVE today, I have a wedding/anniversary card to show you using the
SU Petal Palette Bundle.
The Pinewood Planks dry embossed panel is just enough texture to be noticed but lets
the silver embossed roses take center stage on this card.

Silver Heat Embossing pairs so well with Smoky Slate ink.
I usually use Smoky Slate ink to stamp sentiments with delicate fonts, so much easier than heat embossing:)

It’s difficult to see in the photo but I used the beautiful silver foil paper to die cut the scallop oval that borders the Stitched Shapes oval. Some scattered rhinestones finished off the card wonderfully, don’t you think?

SU Petal Palette Blue Bird

February 9, 2018

My chickadee has turned blue on this card…he’s kinda like a chameleon.
He turns any color I want him to…

I was earning to use some Night of Navy, and I thought Daffodil Delight would pop right of the dark background.
I just colored the beautiful images found in the Petal Palette stamp set with my Stampin’ Blends
and added in some cute little Perfect White Accents.
Don’t you just love that lacy element and the sentiment die cut that comes in the Petals and More Thinlits?

For my northern friends…
Think spring- flowers and birds- just like the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #136 is this week…
