HSS Sketch Challenge #151 – Stampin’ Up! This Too Shall Pass card

The challenge for the next two weeks at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge.  Spark your creativity by using the sketch below.

The card I created is for a friend who is going through a tough time.  I inked up the fan embossing folder with crumb cake before embossing the Sahara Sand card stock.  For an aged look I also sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.  The sentiment is stamped in Raspberry Ripple on Sahara Sand and die cut with the Framelits labels.  I die cut another label from Raspberry Ripple to frame the sentiment.  I die cut the edge of the Sahara Sand layer with the Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies and also cut a strip of Raspberry Ripple and Pink Pirouette.  The Designer Series paper is also die cut with Edgelits Dies and also sponged with crumb cake.  The final touches are Very Vanilla seam binding, Embosslits butterflies and pearls.

Inked Embossing Folder Technique

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is a technique challenge – Inked Embossing Folder Technique.  I wasn’t sure if I would like it but I tried it and guess what?  I LOVE IT!  If you would like to learn how to do this technique SCS has a tutorial here.

I used the Lacy Brocade embossing folder and inked it in Basic Gray.  I love this new folder.  It’s so vintage-looking.  This card came together very fast.  For the flower I punched 6  flowers with the Blossom punch then lightly sprayed with water.  This is to make them easier to fold.  I then stacked the layers then made a hole with my paper piercer then used a brad to keep the flower together.  The butterflies are stamped with Papillion Potpourri then punched with the Elegant Butterfly punch.   The sentiment is from the From my Heart stamp set.  For that extra sparkle I added rhinestones.  Super easy!
