Technique Tuesday: Embossing Techniques

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I am going to share a video with you that covers several different embossing techniques!  Grab a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate, sit back and relax while you learn some really cool techniques with heat embossing.

Embossing is one of my favorite techniques! In fact, it’s what turned my head and said … “I want to book a party!” But did you know there are many ways to emboss? Watch as Andrea demonstrates three additional embossing techniques: water embossing, embossing in any color, and faux metal embossing.

WOW … what did you think? There’s a technique I have never seen before like … water! Who knew!

Thanks for hanging with me today and watching the video.  Stop back tomorrow as I will be sharing a card featuring “embossing”.

Have a really good day ~

 

Designer Paper Party!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Last night I hosted my “Designer Paper” class.  It was a fun night with wonderful ladies … lots of laughs but we still managed to make our cards!!  The focus was on paper techniques and folds because of the Buy One Get One FREE promotion from Stampin’ Up!

I love using designer paper … it can take you from Quick -n- Easy (still beautiful) to Upscale -n- Elegant!! Here is a card that we made last night, and if there is a name for this technique I don’t know what it is, what I do know is that I’ve been wanting to try this for a long time … and it’s EASY!!

This is another great way to use up your scraps!! Cut them into squares, use the new triple punch which has the corner rounder and viola … a quick and cute card!!  The pretty patterns in the Twinkle Twinkle Designer paper are perfect for any style card … I love babies, but let’s think outside of the box. I think it’s perfect for birthday”s, graduations and more – why I bet you could even make a Christmas card out of it!!

The greeting comes from the “Detailed With Love” stamp set, you’ve seen me use this before and you can find it on page 39 of the Annual Catalog. It has great sentiments and pretty elements in it!  Better yet, it’s part of the bundle with the punch!! When you purchase the Detailed Trio Punch and the Detailed with Love stamp set as a bundle … you can save 10%!!

Love this shot …it really shows the dimension on this card.  I’ve also added a little bling to the card … of course!  The new Silver Bakers Twine (Pool Party) and the Faceted Gems, which I think are fabulous and so happy they stayed in the catalog another year 🙂

I thank you for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed the card!

Have a great day ~

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

 

Happy 4th of July Cards & Projects

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

My apologies for the late post but as many of you know … sometimes the cards in our head, don’t always work out on paper!! This was my dilemma on this holiday day … Happy 4th of July to you!! So I’ve decided to share some 4th of July celebration cards I have created in the past …

Four years ago I held a Stampin’ Party and we did some fun projects with the Paper Pumpkin that month … here is what we made: Pinwheels to be used in several different ways!

a treat bag …

and a fun banner …

I used the left over straws in my banner creation and in the card below. I tucked a piece of Bakers twine into the straw to create a fire cracker!!  How clever an I … LOL

Since we’re looking at Paper Pumpkin projects, check out these cute summertime favorites ….

A couple more Red, White and Blue celebration cards …

And I’ll close with two Red, White and Blue cuties of my own … Lilly and Lori my granddaughters!

   

Thank you for checking out my blog on this 4th of July Holiday … I hope you are enjoying your day.

I’ll be back tomorrow with cards highlighting our Designer Paper!!
