Tuesday’s Tips ~ Partial Embossing

Today’s project features a tricky little tip that gives your project that little bit of extra elegance.

Using the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder I have embossed just the top right corner of the card front. It adds interest don’t you think? Here is how I did it…

It was a little tricky trying to get the angle just right. But this was the final position that worked. I ran this through my big shot and I really liked the results.

Below I will list all the supplies I have used for easy reference. If your enjoying my blog I would love for you to “Follow” me via email. This will send you a short reminder email when I have a new post. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! ® Sale A Bration ~ Don’t Miss Out!

This week I am coming to you with 3 posts each sharing a FREE Sale A Bration (SAB) product. How can you earn FREE products you ask? Simply place an order before March 31st of $50+ or $100+ to have your pick from the freebie choices.

Today’s focus is on “The Beautiful Peacock” stamp set which is FREE with a $50 purchase. I have created two cards using this set. The horizontal card was made for my monthly card buffet class and the stepped up vertical version was created at my March Card Class in my home. interested in classes? Feel free to message me I would love to hear your ideas!

For this simple card all you need along with your stamp set is paper & ink. For the base card I used Pacific Point paper stamped with swirls from The Beautiful Peacock stamp set also using the Pacific Point ink pad. The white panel was really fun to stamp. We started on the left with the sentiment followed by the peacock. Then rather than using the additional peacock stamp for the feathers we created fancy feathers using the flourishes in the set. Everyone in class loved the small floral stamps and wanted to stamp them on all their projects.

For this more detailed design we did two step stamping using both peacock stamps. Then we layered them using the layered circle framelits and the starburst punch. They coordinate so nicely together don’t they? With the extra stamping in the background followed by the extra layer using the Petal Paired embossing folder set this card is full of dimension.

I hope you have enjoyed todays samples. Check back Wednesday for a CAS design for midweek.
