Dragonfly Dreams Gold Embossed card

Dragonfly Dreams Gold Embossed card

Dragonfly Dreams Gold Embossed card

This Dragonfly Dreams Gold Embossed card was from one of our weekly color challenges.  It was quite a mix of colors and the gold just called out for heat embossing!  The Dragonfly Dreams stamp set was a great way to get my colors in! 

Simply start with a Very vanilla thick cardstock cut for an A2 card, finished size 5.5″ x 4.25″.  The Old Olive layer is cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″.  and the inside very vanilla layer is cut at 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″.  Emboss the top of the card using the Hexagon emboss folder.  The inner Old Olive layer is 3.5″ square.  And the inner heat embossed Vanilla layer is 3 3/8″ square.

See the video tutorial below for details on heat embossing, and remember to make your envelope pretty!

And here is a video tutorial:

Stampin'Up! Label Me Pretty Powder Pink card

This Stampin’Up! Label Me Pretty Powder Pink card is a very Clean and Simple card. Quick and easy, and I show an easy way to make sure your pretty ribbon from a double strand knot stays on tops where it shows pretty!

Start with an A2 cardbase in Powder Pink cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″.  The Very Vanilla layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″ and embossed using the Cable Knit textured impressions embossing folder.

Stamp the sentiment and punch using the Pretty Label punch, punch another out of Powder Pink cardstock.  Cut the pink one in half and use to border the sentiment.  Pop up using dimensionals.

There’s a simple trick to keep decorative ribbon laying flat on top when making a double strand knot, see the video below!

I made this Stampin Up! Beautiful Bouquet Quick & Easy card for one of our weekly color challenges.  This was inspired by a Chihuly glass art, talk about a mixed bag of color!

Here’s a look at the card “unfolded”

I had fun making this Stampin’Up! Crafting Forever Gate fold card.  Since I really enjoy coloring, and things with depth and dimension, and moving parts… LOL… so the gate fold card was so fun for me to make a card tutorial on. Start with a base of 8.5″ x 5.5″, score and fold 2 1/8″ in from EACH END. the panels on the front are 5.25″ x 1 7/8″. Although I used our Stampin Up watercolor pencils, I did not blend, I just simply shaded using ONLY the pencils. Easy!
