One Little Bird

Hi!  Today I have a card for you with (GASP) NO stamping!  I know, hard to believe – but I love this Designer Series Paper and decided to use it as my focal point for my card:

Bird Ballad, Tin Tile, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019AnnualCatalog

So pretty!  The different layers you see are a die cut of Whisper White using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.  This is under the piece of Whisper White embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  A small strip of Terracotta Tile card stock is layered on top of that.  The final touch is the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper die cut with a Stitched Shape Circle framelit.  A small bow using Linen Thread finishes off the card.

There is plenty of room to add a sentiment from Hello to Thinking of You to Birthday.  I love how this turned out and the pairing of the different layers.

One quick point today – did you know, if you purchase any of the Embossing Folders in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, you will need the following plate to make them work with the old Big Shot.  As Stampin’ Up! moves to a new die cutting system (TBD), the embossing folders are thinner than the old ones – so this additional plate will allow you to use the new folders with the retired Big Shot machine.  You’ll find it here in my on-line store.

Fun with Foil

Hi!  Today I have a card to share featuring the Noble Peacock Foil from the Annual Catalog.  I CASE’d the card from Gail Ellis, an Australian Demonstrator.  I love her style.

Noble Peacock Foil, Tasteful Textures, Delicate Lace Edgelits, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019AnnualCatalog

The card features the Tasteful Textures stamp set for the sentiment and the butterflies are from the Enjoy Life stamp set.

The foil is embossed using the Tufted Embossing Folder.  The lace edge is die cut using one of the Delicate Lace Edgelits.   Two pieces of Blueberry Bushel Grosgrain Ribbon is used to adorn the edge.   The final touch is the rhinestones placed under the sentiment.

We will be making this card in my August Fun with Foil class.  If you are local to Northborough, MA, USA and would like to join me, please send me an email for the details.
