SU Vintage Leaves

SU Vintage Leaves with Seasonal Frame Thinlits

September 7, 2015

I posted a card last week where I sponged a background and stamped it with the SU Vintage Leaves and added some Crystal Effects. I sponged again with a Faux Layering Technique on this card. I used the Pals Paper Arts #266 colors to create the background.

I was inspired by a card done by my friend, Linda Heller. I tore a paper mask and applied some SU Two- Way glue to the torn edge and let it dry so it would be tacky but not permanent. I then simply masked off the bottom part of the Shimmer Paper I sponged on leaving room for the “grateful” which I doubled by glueing one on top of another to give a little more dimension on the card.

*Make sure to sponge up over the masked paper from the bottom instead of from the top so you do not tear the mask down and mess up the “faux edge.”

My girls and I did this card at class and all 45 turned out wonderfully! I was so excited everyone could see the WOW of the technique- you really can’t help but run your finger over it to see if it is layered! But make sure your paws are clean before you do that:)

SU Vintage Leaves with Lighthearted Leaves

August 28, 2015

Hello long lost friends…I am still here…busy, busy, busy but I do have a fall card to post today! I have been playing around with some sponging techniques and had a piece leftover that fit wonderfully into the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #201 this week.

FMS Final 201-001

I used the SU Vintage Leaves along with a sentiment from the new SU Lighthearted Leaves stamp set. I forgot how gold can just add that special touch to a card. I also added a some Crystal Effects to the  outline and the veining on the leaves to add a little something.
Definitely a difficult card to photograph to capture the embossing but I think it shows up.

Why don’t I wet emboss more often? It looks so cool. I still get all giddy when I see the powder change before my eyes! Do you emboss a lot or tend to forget like me?
