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!

Hello, Sunshine!

I love the new Petite Pennants Builder Punch from Stampin’ Up! so I’ve been trying to use it in different projects.  One of my Make and Takes for my party on Saturday July 16th will be featuring this punch.  Also this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we’re having a sun theme challenge.  Since I don’t have any sun stamps I made a sun using the Petite Pennants Builder Punch.  I embellished with Basic Rhinestones I colored with orange and yellow non-SU permanent markers.  It’s so easy and it dries super fast.  This card came together very quickly since I used the Pennant Builder Punch to make the sun’s rays.  I hope you’re inspired to take the challenge.  I would love to see your sun theme creation.

Clean and Simple

Clean and simple is not easy.  It’s difficult to create a card where you have just enough and not too much.  My card is mostly white except for the butterfly and sentiment.  Dimension is created with layers and texture.  It came together very quickly once I decided to use the Floral Fest stamp set.  I stamped the flower image two times with Whisper White Craft ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  The outer layer is punched with the Large Scallop punch and the next flower layer is hand cut with paper snips.  LOVE the Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  It adds so much without being too glitzy.  Click the image to enlarge and see the Iridescent Ice sparkle.  Here’s a sneak peak of one of the new In Colors Island Indigo.  The butterfly and sentiment are stamped in this new In Color.  The punch used for the sentiment is the Decorative Label punch.  Click here to see how to punch.
