Fabulous deals on Stampin’ Up stamp sets, tools and embellishments from November 20-November 26
I used two on the above card for the banners behind the sentiment. I also added a touch of the gold foil outlined with the stitched framelits. This card was CASEd from the annual catalog's sample. I love the mini chevron ribbon in this suite. It is so soft and easy to work with. I added a touch of it tied off with white twine. The Glitter Enamel dots add a touch of sparkle.
The Color Theory Suite in the Stampin' UP Annual Catalog is one of the most versatile sets in the catalog. It works for all the seasons and has coordinating products for memory keeping as well. The DSP 6x6 stack has lovely tonal papers that have an ombre effect like in the card pictured above.
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.
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!
