Encircled in Warmth Free Friday Tutorial

Today’s free PDF tutorial features Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper, Layering Circles Dies and one of the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders.  I heat embossed the sentiment using the stamp set, Encircled in Warmth.

Whimsy & Wonder Fun Fold Card

I always love when a card opens in a different way and my book binding card today is super easy to make! 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List) and scored it in two places. Then I folded the card in half and then folded the other piece back (see the picture below).

 

 

I put Tear & Tape on the small section (I like using Tear & Tape but any strong adhesive will work).  I then folded the piece over towards the right and this creates the book biding look.

 

 

 

I added Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper to the large front panel and the panel on the left. I used our 1-1/2″ Metallic Mesh Ribbon and tied it around the left side. Since I used a heavy duty adhesive, the ribbon is purely decorative. This mesh ribbon is gorgeous with all the silver running through it .You could even use this to wrap presents! 

 

 

I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut a piece of Basic White cardstock and a larger, scalloped circle out of Silver Foil. On the Basic White cardstock, I embossed the sentiment using the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set, Versamark ink, Silver Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool.  Embossing is so easy to do and I really think it makes a card look so elegant.  If you’ve never embossed before, I have directions below.  I adhered the sentiment to the Silver Foil and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Silver Foil circle and adhered it to the front of the card.

 

 

 

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing an anti-static pouch over the surface of the paper as it helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder (Stampin’ Up! no longer carries this product but it’s a must when embossing). Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it.  Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image and then shake off any excess.  Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so the paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch as your image is transformed!

Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack

 

 

Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack

 

I started with one of the scored card bases in the Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes Pack (each package contains enough card bases & envelopes to make 20 cards). Then I chose one of the 4″ x 3″ cards and adhered it to a piece of Highland Heather cardstock (not included).  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and placed it on the card front. 

 

Stampin' Up! Memories & More

 

Using the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a circle out of Highland Heather cardstock using the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I placed one of the stickers included in the Card Pack in the center of the circle, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and placed it in the lower left-hand corner. 

 

Stampin' Up! Elegant Faceted Gems

 

To complete the card, I added three Elegant Faceted Gems (not included in the Card pack) to the front of the card. This was a very quick and easy card to make!

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves & Blending

Today’s card is another version of the one I shared on Monday and it features the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and our Blending Brushes

 

Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set Stamping with Tracy

 

 

I started with a piece of  Coastal Cabana cardstock for the base of my card and then added a layer of Basic White cardstock that I embossed using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder.  

Then, using Basic White cardstock and our Blending Brushes, I covered my paper with Just Jade ink. When I had the shade I wanted, I blended Pool Party ink and then a small amount of Pacific Point ink. As I mentioned in Monday’s post, after getting ink on my Blending Brush, I start by moving the brush in a circular motion on my grid paper and then without lifting the brush, continue on to my Basic White cardstock. This will help to prevent blotches of color. 

 

 

 

I cut the paper down to 4-3/4″ x 2″ and then using Memento Ink, stamped leaves using the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set. Then I adhered it to a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

I used the stamp set Pansy Patch to stamp the sentiment in Memento Ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock. This is a photopolymer stamp set and I CUT the stamp in half so it would fit on my circle. Now my stamp is more versatile and it was easy to cut with our Paper Snips. I cut the sentiment out using our Tasteful Labels Dies.  I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut a larger circle out of Coastal Cabana and then layered the two pieces together. On the back, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the right side only and then adhered it to the card front. To complete the card, I added three Holiday Rhinestones
