Faux Dry Embossing with dies & Petal Palette

Petal Palette Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

With today's card, we do a little Faux Dry Embossing and I'll share a twist on Coloring and Blending.  It's also my first card with the beautiful Petal Palette Bundle.  Wow, is this a gorgeous a gorgeous and versatile bundle!


Petal Palette Stampin' Up!
Petal Palette Card Idea

I love coloring and blending with Stampin' Blends, but I didn't have all the colors that I wanted.  It was time to experiment.  I colored and blended the small flowers with my Night of Navy Stampin' Blends (Alcohol Markers).  I wanted the leaves to be Lemon Lime Twist, so I colored them with a bit of Lemon Lime Twist ink and a Blender Pen.  For shading, I simply went back and added more color.  For the pink flowers, I combined both coloring techniques.  First, I laid down a base color with my Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blend, then I layered on Powder Pink ink with my blender pen.  And that's my Twist on Blending and Coloring.


Faux Dry Embossing Technique

There are some really intricate dies included in the Petals & More Thinlits Dies that lend themselves to Faux Embossing.  To give the look of dry embossing with dies, simply die cut your images with the same color as the background, then glue the die cuts directly on top of the background.  The dies fool the eye into thinking that it may be dry embossing.  Hint:  For best results using intricate dies, use the Precision Base Plate.  The Precision Base Plate adds a little more oomph to your die sandwich, making working with detailed dies a dream.


How to Make a Card

 For a fun twist, try adding a panel of colored card stock to the inside of a white card base.  For today's card, I inserted Lemon Lime Twist.

Hold on to Hope Handmade Card

Hold on to Hope Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today, we'll use an oldie but goody stamping technique called Emboss Resist.  Love the soft washed background from showing off my Gold Foil Cross and my message of hope.  It's the first time that my Hold on to Hope stamp set has seen ink, but it won't be the last.

Emboss Resist Technique

The Background for today's card is the Emboss Resist Technique.  First, I embossed on Watercolor Paper various stamped images from the Hold on to Hope Stamp Set.  Then I lightly spritzed the paper.  And finally, with an aqua painter I washed on Soft Sky and Lemon Lime Twist ink.  Love the soft ombre look.

Hold on to Hope Bundle Stampin' Up!

Hold On To Hope Bundle

Sometimes you need hope. And sometimes you need someone to remind you that God is there for you.  Quickly cut crosses in a variety of sizes and styles with the Big Shot and these Framelits dies. The detailed cross die adds subtle embossing but does not cut. 

Thank you for joining me today!  Is the Hold on to Hope Bundle on your Wish List?

How to Make an I Love You Card

How to Make an I Love You Card

Hello Friends,

Today, I'll show you How to Make an I Love You Card with your Petal Passion Designer Series Paper, your Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers and your Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies.  Any time of year is a good time to say, "I love You" with a handmade card.  And with Valentine's Day just around the corner, that's  even more true.


How to Make an I Love You Card

For both cards I cut various sweethearts with my Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies.  For this card, hearts were cut from Whisper White, Vellum and Pink Pirouette Card Stock.  For the other card, I cut a heart from the Petal Passion Designer Paper and Pink Pirouette Card Stock.


Petal Passion Designer Paper Stampin' Up!

If you find coloring therapeutic,  you'll love this technique.  The new Petal Passion has lots and lots on gorgeous Black and White patterns. Twelve beautiful sheets in each package.  Many of them are just screaming to be colored.  Out came my Stampin' Blends Markers and presto, the magic began.  I love that I can transform my designer paper with any colors that I fancy!


How to Make an I Love You Card

For this Card, the designer paper became the heart focal point, so I set it on a lovely Ruffle embossed piece of Whisper White Card stock.  The sentiment on both cards is from the Flourishing Phrase stamp set.  I heat embossed it white on Night of Navy.


Coloring on Designer Paper

I colored until I had enough to make both a card front and a heart.  The Stampin' Blends that I used for today's cards were Night of Navy, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry.  Just have fun with it.  I can think of so many different color combinations.  As always, I will have a complete list of crafting supplies used at the bottom of this post.
