Stampin’ Up! Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper

The card I’m sharing today was made with Stampin’ Up! Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper (DSP), Notes of Nature stamp set, Thoughtful Expressions Dies and Gold Stampin’ Embossing Powder

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Highland Heather cardstock for the base of my card. Then, I added a layer of Fresh Freesia cardstock and Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper. 

 

 

 

I heat embossed my sentiment using the Notes of Nature stamp set and then cut it out using the Thoughtful Expressions Dies. I cut a larger shape out of out Fresh Freesia cardstock and adhered the sentiment to the front. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

 

To complete my card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the card. 

 

 

 

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy (an anti-static pouch that can be found in the Embossing Additions Tool Kit) over the surface of the paper as it 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 and then shake off any excess. Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so your paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch as your image becomes shiny and beautiful!

Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Stamp Set

Today I have two cards that are variations of a card I shared last week. You can see that card HERE. You can refer to that post for directions on how to make the card and the measurements. For the versions today, I used Texture Chic Designer Series Paper, Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper and the stamp set, Cup of Tea

This first card was made using Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper and the Fern 3D Embossing Folder.  All the cards today were made using our Festive Pearls and I embossed the sentiments using gold embossing powder

 

 

 

 

 

For these next cards I used Texture Chic Designer Series Paper and the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. Our Festive Pearls come in four colors: Cherry Cobbler, Soft Succulent, Silver and Gold.  I used the gold pearls for all of the cards today except for the one below and I used the Soft Succulent pearls. The Festive Pearls have been very popular and keep going in and out of stock. If you’ve had your eye on them, I’d recommend getting them as soon as you can. 

 

 

 

 

This only difference between the previous card and this one is that I used the gold pearls. 

 

 

For this last one, instead of using Gold Foil for the decorative circle, I used Pool Party cardstock. 

 

 

I find it really fun to take a card design I like and then try using different paper and cardstock and even a different sentiment. I hope you’ll give this card design a try!

Stampin’ Up! Texture Chic Designer Series Paper & Last Chance for Abigail Rose Card Sampler

Last week I featured the Basic Borders Dies and I couldn’t help but play with them again using Texture Chic Designer Series Paper. I have two cards to share with you. 

 

 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base of my card. Before adhering it to the front of the card, I placed a piece of Petal Pink cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List) inside the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  I like using bright colors and Petal Pink isn’t one of my favorites but I have to say I love it with this paper! 

 

 

 

I used the Basic Borders Dies to cut a piece of Texture Chic Designer Series Paper and then adhered it to the front of the card. Next, I heat embossed the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock using gold embossing powder (found in a set called Metallics Embossing Powders), Versamark ink and the stamp set, Cup of Tea. If you’ve never heat embossed before (you’ll love it and it’s easy), you can find the directions below. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies and then cut another larger stitched circle out of Gold Foil.  I adhered the sentiment to the foil circle, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card. 

 

 

 

 

To complete my card, I added three Festive Pearls to the front of the card. These pearls have been on backorder but  are now back in stock! 

 

 

Here’s one more card I made and although you might think it’s the same card, the design of the paper is different. 

 

 

 

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy (an anti-static pouch that can be found in the Embossing Additions Tool Kit) over the surface of the paper as it 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 and then shake off any excess. Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so your paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch as your image is transformed (it will be shiny)!
