Case This Sketch #234

Best birds Stamp Set by Stampin' UPColor Palette for CTS234

Case This Sketch Challenge 234

Today’s card was inspired by a sketch challenge from Case This Sketch.  The bird image from the Best Birds stamp set is set upon the Burlap background stamp.  The simple color palette sets off the image nicely.  I flipped the sketch to a horizontal format to accommodate the larger sentiment from the Floral Phrases stamp set.

The circle is punched using the 2 1/2″ circle punch and dry embossed using the Pinewood Plank dynamic embossing folder.  Pop the circle up on dimensionals as well as the little bird. Finish the Card with the 1/4″ Copper Trim.

Make sure to check out these great blogs for inspiration.  They have great layouts, color combinations and themes to choose from.  For the above card, I used the following blogs for inspiration.

Emboss Resist Technique

Emboss Resist is a technique that creates a lot of impact for very little effort.   On a small piece of whisper white card stock, you simply stamp the Brushstrokes image in Versamark ink, sprinkle with clear or white embossing powder, and then melt it with a heat gun.

Using sponge wedges, sponge each of the five colors right over the top of the embossing.  Wipe the remaining ink off the embossed stripes with a paper towel.  So much fun while being a quick technique. Try it out!

Label Me Pretty Bundle

145305G

Using the little label from the Label Me Pretty stamp set, stamp the curly cue in Fresh Fig ink and the sentiment “You’re the Best” in Tranquil tide.  Just punch it out with the coordinating punch.  I love that Stampin’ UP makes this so easy.  Top it off with a In Color Bitty Bow. I chose the Lemon Lime Twist one. Done!

Timeless Tags Thank You Gift

Thank you gift made with Timeless Tags

Fun Thank You Gift

These fun little thank you gifts were for the people that placed an order with me last month.  I used the That’s the Tag Stamp set to highlight the cut out shape from the Timeless Tags Thinlits Die.  It was stamped on the lace paper from the Falling In Love Designer Series paper.  I ended up cutting three separate layers.

The first layer was the lace paper stamped with the oval dots image and cut with the butterfly die.  The second layer was an oval cut with the pink and tan bokeh paper and the third layer had the To: and From: sentiment stamped on the back.  I layered the three together with the Tombow glue lining up the hole at the top.

I finished it up with a bit of the Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon and one of the Falling In Love embellishment flowers.

Timeless Tags Stained Glass Paper Flower

Image of Timeless Tags Stained Glass effect flower

Stained Glass Technique

This card demonstrates that paper piecing can definitely have the feel of stained glass.  For this card, I cut the flower tag from the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies three times. One using basic black cardstock, and one each of the sugarplum glimmer paper and the mint macaron glimmer paper.

Using an oval cut with the Stitched Framelit dies as my base, I attached the black flower outline to the oval first and filled in the missing pieces with glimmer paper.   It is like putting the puzzle back together so to speak.

I hope you try out this technique. Let me know what you think in the comments section. I love hearing from you.

Copper Queen Note

Copper Foil Shines

Stampin’ UP’s copper foil sheets shine on in the little leaves and floral images on this card.  The flower at the top is placed so it looks like a crown on top of the sentiment. It is so simple to cut these intricate shapes on the Big Shot with the precision plate. The Flourishing Phrases stamp set adds a little background color with the large floral image stamped in Dapper Denim ink.  The floral image is hand-trimmed and cut in half to fit on both sides of the circle sentiment.

Petal Burst Embossing Folder

The entire image is pushed off the card front with stampin’ dimensionals. Finished off with a textured background created by the Petal Burst embossing folder, this card is simple to make but looks like it took you hours.  All of these items can be found in Stampin’ UP’s large annual catalog.
