Stampin Up

I am pretty new to the Stampin' Up products, so I thought I would share 2 cards made with the same stamp. When I first saw the very popular Lotus Blossom stamp set I knew I had to have it. I did play around on scrap before I was happy that I had the technique right.The first card is stamped on regular card stock and I have used the sentiment as well. The card is a tri-fold card layered with dies.

The next card I prepared the layered parhcment papers making 2
separate layers with embossed borders. I stamped the Lotus Blossom onto
 the parchment with Versamark chalk ink and left it to dry. 
This has a very delicate look to it and I will add a sentiment once I know 
who it is going to.

White on white

I thought I would just post some of the white on white cards I have made, I am sure they would be suitable for birthday, wedding or anniversary cards.
I have used a mix of embossing folders and dies to put the cards together.
 The card above was made using Spellbinders Gold Circle dies and their feather dies. The embossing folder is Cuttlebug Wicker Weave.
 For this card I used Marianne dies and embossing folder.
 The last one is made with a Marianne die, flourishes are from Spellbinders and the rose from
Cheery Lyn. The embossing folder is the Darice Oblong Doily folder

Almost Graduation time again

I have 2 graduating this year so thought I had been get my cards done.
The first is graduating from Nursing College and this card is a fun card for her as this is her 2nd Degree. I have used Sue Wilson's California Collection Basic Frames  Set A and the Decorative Frames Set B as the basis of the shape and layers for this card. The card is a triple fold out card, which I saw on a You Tube video. I have used a Kenny K image coloured with Promarkers and some word stamps from my stash.

Go for Gold

Stamping on parchment and heat embossing with different embossing powders can give a totally different look to the same stamp. I have used one of my favourite stamps (discontinued) from PSX the Hibiscus. For this card I have decided to go gold and white. The image was stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold detail embossing powder. I then dry embossed the petals and leaves from the back to add some texture. I also embossed a simple border and attached the parchment paper to a metallic gold layer using gold corner peel offs and glue dots.
