Serene Garden Die Embossing Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend.  I had a very nice weekend, my niece Carla took me out to lunch and brought me a bouquet of tulips. Then on Sunday we went to the Cher concert … amazing!!

Today I have a very special card for you, another Serene Garden card that shows you an amazing technique … embossing with your dies!!

You can easily do this with the BigShot Embossing Mats.  Here is a video to explain these a little better than a whole bunch of my words! lol

I love all that you can do when you have the BigShot Embossing Mats.  I do mine just a bit differently, I layer my mat under my cardstock to I don’t have to used the cutting side of the die face up! Either way you do it, you will love the results.

I also have another Stampin’ Tip: If the blue pad does not give you a deep enough emboss, and the gray is too deep … Use the blue mat but stick a piece of cardstock underneath the first cutting plate to give it just a bit more height… a shim in fact.

The embossed background on the card is somewhat subtle but in the hand, it’s amazing and with the Wink of Stella on the flowers the card is truly a beauty.  You get a pop of color with the greeting and our Highland Heather butterlfy.

I did share with you yesterday that this bundle is retiring and so are the Embossing Mats, if you would like these, I have a link below or you can contact me and I will help you get these in your stamp room.

Thank you for stopping back today to see yet another sample from the Serene Garden bundle, but I’m not stopping here … I have another one for you tomorrow.

Have yourself a great day today, and I’ll meet you back here tomorrow.

Guest Stamper: Golden Afternoon Stamp Set

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another swap card from our Onstage event.  The card features the Golden Afternoon stamp set that you can find in the Occasions catalog.  I would love to give credit to the demonstrator who made this card, however, there was no name on it … just the comment “Cased by Francie”.

This card is so pretty and she did her watercoloring using the Water Color Pencils and the Watercolor paper.  This is another set that I had to have but did not find time to use it until … retreat!!  Our ladies will be using the sentiments from this stamp set on a couple of the cards that we are making.  I share some of them with you soon.

Tomorrow I will be sharing the new In-Colors with you! Can’t wait for you to see them showcased this way.

Thank you for coming over to my blog today. Have a yourself a great day ~
