Stampin’ Up! Sunflowers Dies

Today’s card features the Sunflowers Dies and the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder

 

Sunflowers Dies

 

I used Thick Whisper White cardstock for the base of my card. For the next layer, I embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. To that piece I added a piece of Playing With Patterns 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and then wrapped a piece of Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon (one of the ribbons in the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack) around the middle and secured it in the back with adhesive.  After adhering that piece to the card base, I went to work on the sunflower.

As you can see in the photo of the dies, above, there are two pieces that can be used to create the sunflower, a backing and then the actual sunflower.  I cut the backing out of Purple Posy cardstock and then embossed it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.  Then I cut the sunflower out of Whisper White cardstock. I added some Multipurpose Glue to the middle of the sunflower and placed it on top of the backing. I did lift some of the areas of the sunflower to try and add more adhesive but as you can see, those areas are very narrow. Next time, I’ll try running the sunflower through my die-cutting  using one of our adhesive sheets so that the entire sunflower is secured. But, I may end up liking it better not completely adhered to the backing.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sunflower before attaching it to the front of the card.

I used the stamp set, Butterfly Gala, for the sentiment and embossed it using Silver Embossing Powder.  It was cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adhering it to the card. 

Bundle Alert: The Sunflowers Dies can also be purchased as part of a bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Wreath Builder Dies

Today’s card features the Wreath Builder Dies and the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder

 

Wreath Builder Dies Stampin Up

 

What a fun set of dies with so many possibilities for wreath building! You can make an everyday wreath, such as the one on my card today or you can add hearts, flowers, Easter eggs, and so much more. If you pair it with the Arrange a Wreath stamp set, you’ll have even more possibilities and you’ll save 10%! 

 

Wreath Builder Dies

 

Arrange a Wreath Bundle Stampin' Up!

 

I used Highland Heather and Old Olive cardstock to create the wreath (I love this color combination!).  At first I wasn’t sure how I was going to adhere these to my card but it was very easy! To attach the Highland Heather wreath to the embossed piece of Whisper White cardstock, I added Glue Dots to the back. Then, I applied Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Old Olive wreath.  Super easy! 

 

Stampin' Up! Wreath Builder Dies

 

The sentiment was embossed with White Embossing Powder using the stamp set, Field of Flowers and then cut out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing an anti-static pouch** over the surface (this helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder).  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. 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 the magic happen! 

** Stampin’ Up! retired its Embossing Buddy but using a similar tool is really important when preparing your cardstock for embossing.

 

Field of Flowers Stamp Set

 

The inspiration for my card came from a Canadian demo named Linda Yamamoto.  You can see her beautiful card here

Stampin’ Up! Here’s a Card

Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper

Today’s card was created using Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper. This colorful, cheerful paper was released in early February during the Coordination Product Release and will only be available until March 31, 2020.  It coordinates with four products:

 

Pleased as Punch DSP

 

The base of my card is Pool Party cardstock with a layer of Whisper White cardstock that was embossed using the Eyelet Lace embossing folder. The two banners were created using our Banner Triple Punch which will cut three different widths of paper:  2″, 1-1/2″ and 1″.

The sentiment is from the stamp set, Here’s a Card, and was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento Ink. It was cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. To complete the card, I added three rhinestones using our Holiday Rhinestones.

If you’d like to recreate today’s card, all the measurements I used can be found below the Supply List.

Stampin’ Up! Parisian Blossoms

Parisian Blossoms

The card I’m sharing with you today was made using two designs from Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper in the 2020 Mini Catalog.  

Parisian Blossoms DSP

 

I began with a base of Pool Party cardstock and then added a layer of Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper.  I layered another smaller piece of Pool Party with another design from the package, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.

 

Abstract Impressions

 

The sentiment was stamped in Memento Ink using the stamp set, Abstract Impressions. It was cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and a die-cutting machine. I also added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of this piece before adhering it to the front of the card.  To finish the card, I added three Champagne Rhinestones.

Night Before Christmas

 

My card today features the stamp set Itty Bitty Christmas and our 6″ x 6″ Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper. With all the beautiful designs on this paper, card-making is super easy!

 

Night Before Christmas

 

I embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder and cut it out using my die-cutting machine and the Stitched Rectangle DiesIf you haven’t embossed before, it’s pretty easy. Here are the instructions:

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy over the surface (this helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder).  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.  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 the magic happen!

Glitter Queens Blog Hop – All About Men

It’s time for the Glitter Queens Blog Hop and this month it’s all about men! I have to admit, it was REALLY hard for me to come up with a card suitable for a man.  Ever since I lost my dad almost ten years ago, I just haven’t been able to make a Father’s Day card. I’ve made cards for my husband but I usually sneak in some feminine touches.  It’s so hard not to add a rhinestone or two!!!  

I tend to give my brother in law gift cards so I made my cards today with him in mind! I made a video last year showing how to create this type of gift card holder which you can view here! (Please note:  many of the products in the video have retired).  (more…)
