Floral Card Using Mutli Layered Heat Embossing

By Cards

FloralCard

Hi all,

How many times have you cleaned your room and stumble upon something you’ve had for the longest time? That’s the feeling I have about the corner of my craft room that houses embossing powders. I’ve spent the last few posts re-discovering the powders all over again. For this card, I decided to swap out my usual stamp inks for only embossing powders.

I grabbed my favorite floral set from Altenew and some Versa mark ink. I stamped the bottom layer of a flower and heat embossed it in a light color gradient of pink. Then I stamped directly on top of the embossed image and stamped the layer of details included in the stamp set. Next, I heat embossed in a darker shade.

Once the stamping was complete I cut out the images and layered them onto my card base.

Here’s how the whole project came together.

Mother’s Day Postage Stamp Greeting Card

By Cards

mothersdaypostagestamp

Hi all,

I’m back with an all new mother’s day card to share. For this card, I wanted to create a postage stamp as the main focal point of the card. At first I thought I wondered how I could find a postage stamp large enough to feature, then I realized how simple it could be to create one in silhouette studio.

To break things down think of the postage stamp as a rectangle and the edge is created by welding in a row of circles. I added in some various sizes of words for the sentiment and a beautiful die-cut of roses.

Here’s a closeup of those roses – look at all that sparkle!

Hand Cut & Stitched Sketchbook and Journal

By Planner Stationary & Accessories

Hello all,

I’m so excited to share a fun project I created the other day! I have always been drawn to fun prints and textures when it comes to stationary and notebooks. I try to keep things lively and colorful to brighten up my desk or work space. So the other day as I was looking at some sketch paper and chipboard I had purchased over a year ago, I decided I’d make my very own sketchbook/journal to help organize my thoughts when it comes to cardmaking and project designs.

The covers are 7 gypsies Nouveau book covers. The interior papers are creme cardstock from 7 gypsies as well. I trimmed down the cardstocks to match the book (approximately 7″ x 5.5″).

The bookcovers were covered with atg and then wrapped with papers from the Echo Park 12×12 Simple Life collection.

I did the same on thing to the back.  Then, I hand-punched holes throughout each page so that I could loop through some gold thread.

I absolutely LOVE the way the gold thread shows threw while the book is open.

And here’s the finished beauty resting on top of some of my other notebooks I have on my desk. These notebooks are seriously my all time favorites!

Thank You Card Featuring Floral Background Stamp

By Cards

Hi All,

Hope you are all having a memorable summer! I feel like it has gone by way too fast & I’m so not looking forward to cooler weather.

To keep things in the spirit of bright and fun, I’d love to share with you my latest project. I wanted to use a large background stamp as my focal point of a card. I have been enjoying the inspiration shared over at Online Card Classes (Stretch Your Stamps 2) and thought I would share my take on featuring a large background stamp. I love the way it turned out and as you can see from the video, but it requires quite a few steps. I don’t think it’s the fastest type of card to make, but it does make quite a statement. The colors are so bold and iridescent no matter where the light hits it!
