NEW Technique Tuesday Making a Scene using an Embossing Folder

I love Tuesday’s!  Techniques are my favorite thing about stamping.  I get to use my Stamps in a totally different way!!  The Technique I am using today had me thinking of what I could put BEHIND trees, but still show what I needed it to show.

Here is today’s card:

I made a YouTube video showing this stamping technique.  I love Birch Trees, I also love the Birthday Delivery Stamp set by Stampin’ Up!  I got super excited about being able to use BOTH!  When you go watch the video it will show you exactly how easy this technique is to do!

Stamping directly onto an Embossing Folder isn’t something you think of normally.  Tips:  1. Stamp on the side that has the negative (dipping down) the part you want as your focal in the folder this will be the part that is raised on your card. 2.  Pick images to stamp on that you will see in the lines available that are the flat parts of the folder.  3.  Use colors that will enhance what you are stamping.  4. Use a brayer to lay down a color that will be behind the images (sky), anything you stamp over the brayered color will be at the top of the cardstock.  5. Make sure that you don’t move the folder once you put all the stamping in (I did NOT follow this rule on my video, but I fixed my mistake!)  6.  Remember that it’s ONLY PAPER, and play with it!

I won’t be able to show you here how to do this technique, it would be too confusing, so please go check out my video and see how fun and easy it is.  You will notice that you will look at stamps in a totally new way!

Today I am sharing with you a Clean and Simple card.  I have so much trouble keeping things simple, I always want to JAZZ them up.  But this one is jazzy without adding more.  At least I think so!  You’ll have to tell me!

I LOVE the copper embossing powder, and I added some Copper thread.  The dots are done in the Copper Powder, it’s hard to see that in this picture.  AND I have found that Banners for You works well with other stamp sets!!  I used the Happy Birthday from Birthday Banners.  Since it is Photopolymer you can bend the stamp to fit the banner!!

Below my name is a list of all the supplies to make this card, just click on any picture to be sent to my OnLine Store!  If you buy from my store I will send you a handmade card!

Until next time!

Christmas Already? Wow card using Embossing Paste!

Yes, my title says it all!  I’m starting to design my Christmas Cards!  I’m sure there will be more when the Holiday Mini comes out, but I figure I need to start now and so do my girls!!

Today I am sharing with you a design I came up with using the stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called At Home with You!  I know I have shown other cards using this stamp set, but when you add the Embossing Paste and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks it takes the card a step further than I had before!!  The embossing paste really makes the front of the card a house!  Here is a picture of the card:

I added two drops of Cherry Cobbler reinker to the Paste and mixed it on my Silicone Craft Sheet (soooo easy to clean after!) and then spread it over the Brick pattern on my Whisper White Cardstock (5 1/4″ x 4″ tape it down so it won’t move).  It was MUCH easier than I thought it would be!  It dried in just 30 minutes!  For this NON patient person that was awesome!  I did the brick first and then by the time I was ready for the front of the card, it was dry!  Yay for me!  No waiting!

Here is a close up of the bushes with the ornaments:

I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen and let it dry.

And finally a close up of a side view:

I want to try the battery lights for this card, but I’m a little intimidated by it…….anyone do that before?

I will be making more Christmas cards as time goes on!  I plan on having a Christmas card class next month……I better get going on designing!  🙂

I also have blog candy!!

Darling Baby Card! Kylie’s International Blog hop!

Once again I am TRYING to be in the top ten for Kylie’s International Blog Hop, will you help me??  I came close last time, but would really like to get there this time!   Can you tell that the dog is fluffy and two colors!?  Read on to see how it was done!

Please vote for me by going to Kylie’s blog hop page!  To vote, you will click on the heart in the right corner of the pictures, preferably mine!!  🙂

The theme this month is Baby.  My card isn’t traditional ‘baby’ but I think it would make a GREAT Birthday card for any baby, OR on the inside it could say that you are expecting!!  That you are HAVING a baby!!

Here’s my card:

Isn’t it cute!!??  Same as last month, I had a totally different card planned, but I didn’t think it mustered!  I came home from a stamp class today and sat right down and made this one!  I love how the dog has such puffy fur!  Want to know how I did that?

That’s Vellum that I stamped the dog on, using Soft Suede (then embossed with clear), I then turned it over onto one of our stamp mats, and using the stylus from the Score Board I press in circular motions (gently at first!!) on the places for the white fur, it makes the Vellum raise up and turn white!!  Cool Right!!?? I then cut ANOTHER dog out of Soft Suede (using the thinlit of course!) and popped up the Vellum, putting the mini dimensionals (YUM!) under the pom pom balls on his feet and front!!  You can’t see them, can you!?  That’s because the Vellum is so white that you can place them behind and it disappears!  I LOVE this technique!

Can you see the clouds in the sky?!  Those are made with Stampin’ Up!’s Embossing Paste and the masks!

The little girl AND the dog are stamped, but the fox is cut out of the Designer Series Paper!  LOVE, love, love this suite!

Here’s a close up of the puffy:

Bumpy Bike ride near the Mountains

Today the mail came and inside was my framelits for Bike Ride from Stampin’ Up!  Of course I had to give it a try!

I wanted mountains in my picture so I tore some Post-It notes and stuck them to the top of my card:

I then sponged lightly Dapper Denim at the top, making the part closer to the Sticky Notes darker, and then fading the color away.

I ran the cardstock that I was using through the Big Shot with the bumpy rock thinlit under the paper, then ran it though.   This gave the Cardstock the bumps!  They look like rocks so I sponged over them using Soft Suede, this highlighted the rocks!  I was so tickled by this! Normally you put your thinlit OVER your cardstock to cut it out, but this time I wanted the impression.  Came out pretty didn’t it!?

I stamped the Bike in Fresh Fig, SU’s NEW In Color!  I also stamped the basket in it!  The dog’s scarf is Fresh Fig too!

Here is the card:

The thinlits I used are the bike frame, dog, basket, flowers and butterflies.  Oh! And my favorite the rocks!

The butterflies are cut out of the Designer Series Paper Birthday Memories:

I LOVE this thinlit! Just cut out the butterfly and it has the antenna, wings and ALL!  I HAD to add Dazzling Diamonds to make them look even prettier!

The Measurements are the normal card size with the Base being in Fresh Fig 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, scored at the 5 1/2″ line to make the card.
The Whisper White is 4″ x 5 1/4″  And scraps for all the cut outs!  This was a really fun card to make!!  I love how you can make so many different things  be on the bike!  Just change out your background and the stamp set can be for sooooo many different occasions!

I hope you enjoyed your visit today!  I have more Blog Candy to give away  on here tomorrow!!  Be sure and visit so you can be in the drawing to win!
