Floral Affection Embossing Folder Flower Card

 

Embossing Folders... I love them!! I think they are a must have product for any card maker or crafter!  Sometimes they become a background and sometimes they can be your focal point, like the Floral Affection embossed flower image on my note card today!  Find the complete selection of Stampin' UP! Embossing Folders HERE in my online store.

I have used 4 of the products from the Affectionately Yours Suite on my "sending a smile your way" card.

 

The Affectionately Yours suite of products (found on pages 44 and 45 of the current 2016 catalog) includes these 9 products that coordinate so nicely together:

  • Love & Affection stamp set #141545 **
  • Copper embossing powder #141636
  • Floral Affection embossing folders #141713 **
  • Affectionately Yours washi tape #141635 
  • Affectionately Yours Specialty designer paper #141632 **
  • Metallic Copper Thread #141696
  • Affectionately Yours cardstock #141633**
  • Mint Macaron striped ribbon #141431
  • Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon #141433

** notes a product used on this project

When you emboss your paper in the Big Shot with this flower "Floral Affection" embossing folder, you can flip the cardstock either way, so that the outline of the flower is raised, or, so that the outline of the flower is depressed like I have shown here. 

I rounded the corners on this piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock with the Project Life corner rounder.

The base of this card is a Whisper White Note Card and I added 2 pieces of Affectionately Yours designer paper and stamped flowers on the piece at the bottom of the card from the Love & Affection stamp set.  I also set it off with some crisp white Satin Ribbon. This ribbon retired after I made the card, but you could substitute the White Organza ribbon or the Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon referenced above.

I stamped the random flowers and the "sending a smile your way" greeting on the Watermelon Wonder embossed piece with Night of Navy ink.

Sailboat Card with Stampin' Up! Swirly Scribbles

 

The Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird stamp set and Swirly Scribbles Thinlit dies pair up so nicely to bring you this fun sailboat card!!  I saw this idea a month or so ago online done by Marsha Pennington and loved the idea of stamping on the wavy die cut with the swirly stamps and then sponging on more color.. doesn't it create such a beautiful "wave"?

 

Stampin' UP! Swirly Bird and Swirly Scribbles Bundle Sailboat Card by Patty Bennett. Supplies available online: www.PattyStamps.com

 

Tips for Stamping this card:

  • Stamp the swirl image from the Swirly Bird stamp set in Night of Navy around the edge of the folded 4-1/4" x 11" whisper white card
  • Mask the 4" x 5-1/4" whisper white piece with a large post-it note and sponge the bottom 1/3 with Bermuda Bay, and lightly stamp the speckle image from Swirly Bird in Bermuda Bay
  • Switch mask and lightly sponge the top 2/3 of the card with Bermuda Bay or Pool Party (for the sky)
  • Stamp sailboat pieces from the Swirly Bird stamp set on a white scrap and cut out with paper snips
  • Punch clouds with Tree Builder punch in Whisper White cardstock
  • Stamp swirly image with Night of Navy on the wavy die cut piece, sponge Cucumber Crush and Bermuda Bay onto the die cut stamped piece, adhere with Multipurpose Glue

 

Crafty Tip:

Use the Tree Builder Punch to create clouds!  Just punch the "tree top" with Whisper White cardstock and add them to your sky to create clouds!  I "curved" them a little with my bone folder then put Stampin' Dimensionals only under the center to give them dimension.

Use the Tree Builder Punch for clouds on the Stampin' UP! Swirly Bird and Swirly Scribbles Bundle Sailboat Card by Patty Bennett. Supplies available online: www.PattyStamps.com

 

Stamping Tip:

Use your Clear Wink of Stella Glimmer pen to add shimmer to your sailboat and water.. just the perfect touch for that illusion of sunlight on the water!

How to Make a Window Front Card:

I wanted to create a different style card, so I decided to cut an opening in my card front using the Project Life by Stampin' UP! Cards & Labels framelit set. 

  • Start with a 4-1/4 x 11" top fold card
  • Position the rectangle die in the front panel of the card, put it through the Big Shot to die cut the opening
  • Add a piece of Window Sheet, approx. 4" x 5-1/4".  I used Fast Fuse and the adhesive barely shows! yay!
  • Use the rectangle cut out to die cut the Peekaboo Peach flower piece to conserve cardstock
  • Add a contrasting piece of designer paper inside the card so that you have a fun pattern showing through the window

 

How to create a Window Card featuring Stampin' UP! Project Life Cards & Labels framelits and window sheets by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

On my Window Front Card, I used Cucumber Crush cardstock to die cut the stem/leaves from the Thoughtful Branches framelits set, and then cut the flower portion in both Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach and layered them together. 

I also stamped the leaf image on the Peekaboo Peach with Peekaboo Peach ink, then used my Wink of Stella to add glimmer to the top flower layer! So pretty!

 I could tell there were several Thoughtful Branches greeting images that would fit in the label from the Project Life Cards & Labels framelit set.. here is a tip to check to see if your image will fit!

 

How to find greeting images to fit in your framelit label shapes, by Patty Bennett

 

One last tip for you .. when adding intricate die cut pieces to your projects, use either the Fine-Tip glue pen or the Multipurpose glue sparingly!

Die Cut Tip:  Use Multipurpose Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen sparingly when adding adhesive to intricate dies.
