Beautiful Journal to Personalize

Did you know Stampin' Up has a journal in the Pressed Flowers Suite?  It's spiral bound with a lovely embossed cover.  I've decorated mine with Designer Series Paper from the Pressed Flowers suite, and the unique Pressed Flowers washi tape.  Use the petals to form a flower! Thanks to Missy Shipman of Glad Heart Stampers for this journal and supplies to decorate it.  She gave them to us at our 20 year celebration yesterday.  This is how I decorated mine.

Winter Woods Holiday Card

Its July, but it's not too soon to start making Christmas cards!  The 2019-2020 Holiday Card isn't out yet, but there are beautiful Christmas stamp sets in the Annual Catalog.  Winter Woods is on page 71 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  I love this stamp set because it is so versatile, not only for holiday stamping, but other occasions as well.  

This card is made using the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes set (page 37, 2019-2020 AC).  These are beautiful, pre-made card bases with matching envelopes.  How easy is that?  I wanted to bring out the lovely silver edging on the front of this card.  So, I've heat embossed the background trees and the sentiment with silver embossing powder. A touch of gold is added with the 3/8" metallic ribbon and gold Faceted Gem.  

I've used a tree made from the Gold Foil sheet and one made from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  Which one do you like?  I lean toward the Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  It does not show up well in these photos, but the tree cut from the Sparkle Glimmer paper really shines!  The trees are cut using In the Woods dies, page 193 in the 1919-2020 AC.

Here is the card recipe:

Paper:

Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes

Basic Black cad stock 4 1/4 x 3 1/4

Gold Foil Paper, or Sparkle Glimmer paper

Stamp set:

Winter Woods

Ink:

Versamark Ink

Embellishments: Gold Faceted Gem, Metallic Edge Ribbon

Tools:

Silver embossing powder, Heat tool, Mini Glue Dots, Snail Adhesive

Adhere ribbon to lower part of card stock.  Add glue dot to hold in place.

AMAZING EVERYTHING BIRTHDAY CARD

I wish I had made this card earlier in the month, close to July 4th.  With the red, white, and blue colors, and red designer series paper cut to look like patriotic drapery, it would have been a delightful birthday card for early July.  I've used the Amazing Everything stamp set to create this fun card.  The large Very Vanilla background is embossed with the Tufted 3D embossing folder. The large word "Amazing" is embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss powder. Directions are below.

Amazing

SUPPLIES:

Paper - Very Vanilla, Real Red, Blueberry Bushel, Real Red Designer Series Paper.

Ink - Versamark, Real Red ink, Gold embossing powder.

Stamp set - Everything Amazing (p. 20, 2019-2020 Annual Catalog)

Tools - Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Big Shot, Snail Adhesive, Fine Tip glue pen, Mini glue dots.

Embellishments - White Baker's Twine

DIRECTIONS:

Cut Real Red card stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" for card base and score at 4 1/4."  Cut a Blueberry Bushel piece 5 x 3 3/4" and one at 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 for mat pieces behind the Very Vanilla pieces.  Cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock 4 7/8 x 3 5/8" and a piece 2 5/8 x 3 5/8." Emboss the large piece with the Tufted 3D embossing folder.  Adhere to large Blueberry Bushel mat piece.

Cut a piece of Real Red Designer Series paper 2 x 6" and emboss with the large Delicate Lace Die. Adhere with Fine tip glue pen about halfway down the front of the embossed large Very Vanilla piece.

Run Embossing Buddy across smaller Very Vanilla piece. Stamp with large "Amazing" stamp using Versamark Ink.  Add Gold embossing powder to the ink and dry with Heat tool.  Stamp balloons, stars, and sentiment in Real Red ink.  

Dye White Baker's Twine with Night of Navy ink by running it back and forth across the ink pad.  Let dry, make bow, and adhere below balloons with a glue dot.

Adhere stamped piece to Blueberry Bushel mat piece and place on card with dimensionals.
