Wildflower Meadows with Vellum and Candy Dots

I wanted to try a different look using the Wildflower Meadows stamp set and Embossing folder.  I used White Vellum Card Stock to stamp and emboss on.  I really like the look.

Wildflower Meadow Card with Vellum

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Wild Flower Meadow w#129165  c#129168  (Bundle with Embossing Folder
w#132735  c#132985  )
Markers:  Garden Green
Melon Mambo
Tempting Turquoise
Card Stock:  Coastal Cabana
White Vellum #101956
Big Shot:  Wildflower Meadows Embossing Folder #129376  (See Bundle above)
Other:  Brights Candy Dots #130931
Glue Dots
Heat Tool & Clear Embossing Powder (recommended)

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Coastal Cabana card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your White Vellum card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Color the flowers, stems, and bird on your stamp with the desired color Marker.  Breathe several times over the part of the stamp the you colored.  Lay stamp on your table, rubber side up.  Put Vellum card stock in the desired position on stamp.  Hold in place with a couple of fingers.  Now rub the card stock with either a Clear Mount Block, a Wood Block, or your fingers.  I prefer using a Clear Mount Block because it glides over card stock more easily without moving the card stock.  Move your fingers to the half of the card stock you just rubbed and do the other side.  This technique will give a great impression on all your larger and Background stamps.
3.  You need to get the ink dry now.  There are several options.  1st Option.  Use your Heat Tool.  Keep it moving so you don’t burn your Vellum.  This really takes quite a while as the ink is very wet.  Sometimes this just doesn’t work no matter how long you try.  I did get ink marks on my embossing folder.  2nd Option.  Use Clear Embossing Powder over your stamped images and melt with your Heat Tool.  This seals in the color and is much quicker!
4.  Line up your Wildflower Meadow Embossing Folder over your stamped flowers aligning the flowers and stems as desired.  Run through your Big Shot.  If you get ink on your embossing folder, just run it under some water or use your Stampin’ Mist and a tissue to clean it.
5.  Place a Glue Dot one the back side of the Vellum in each corner.  Adhere to your card front.   Now place a Candy Dot over each of the Glue Dots.
6.  Admire your quick and easy All-Occasion Card!

You can purchase the items to make this card from My Online Store.

Boho Blossoms White on White Wedding or Anniversary Card

Tis the season for Weddings and I need a few Wedding and Anniversary cards.  It has been a while since a made a White-on-White Card.  This will be one of my swaps for Convention.  I had a couple of friends over yesterday to help me make 50 of them.  We got most of the parts completed, though I need to get a new Boho Blossoms Punch, more Ribbon and Pearls.
Boho White on White Anniversary or Wedding Card

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Loving Thoughts  w#128436  c#125845
Ink:  Black StayzOn
Card Stock:  Whisper White
Big Shot:  Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder #116824
Adorning Accents Embossing Folder #125601
Adorning Accents Edgelits  #125595
Punches:  Corner Rounder #119871
Boho Blossoms #119858
Punch Pack  #118309
Other:  White Organiza Ribbon #114319
Basic Pearls
Glue Dots
Dimensionals
Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Round all four corners with the Corner Rounder Punch.
2.  Cut your Whisper White card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Round all the corners with your Corner Rounder Punch.  Run through your Big Shot using the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder.  Adhere to your card base with Tombow Glue.
3.  Cut your next layer of Whisper White card stock at 4″ x 5″.   Cut the one end using your Big Shot at the desired Adorning Accents Edgelit.  Use the coordinating Adorning Accents Embossing Folder and emboss about 1″ above the cut edge.  This rounded edge will be the bottom.  Round the upper two corners with your Corner Rounder Punch.
4.  Now for the Flowers.  Punch five sets of Boho Blossoms flowers from Whisper White card stock.  Slightly bend the flower petals upwards on each flower as you use it.  This will add some dimension to your project.    Use Glue Dots to adhere a large flower to a medium flower.  Repeat two more times.  Punch two Itty Bitty flowers.  Adhere each of these to another Medium flower.  Lay flowers in desired positions with larger flowers at the ends and in the center and smaller flowers inbetween the larger flowers.
5.  Stamp sentiment in Black StayzOn ink on the flower layer using your Stamp-a-ma-jig.
6.  Cut your Ribbon about 6″ long.  Position your Ribbon about 1/2″ below the top edge of your flower layer and adhere it with either SNAIL or Glue Dots.  (Mine is about 3/4″ below.)  Pinch the flat Ribbon in the center and adhere with a Glue Dot or two.  Tie a Bow.  Attach it to the center of your flat Ribbon using several Glue Dots on the back of the knot.  You may also need to use Glue Dots to position the bow parts and the Ribbon Tails in the desired position.
7.  You can finally adhere the Flower Layer to the embossed card front with Dimensionals.
8.  Now add your Basic Pearls as desired.
9.  Give this to a pair of Newly Wed’s or to a couple celebrating their Anniversary.  I will make another and use it for both!  Change the Sentiment and use it for a Birthday or other occasion.

Embossing Powder:  Melon Mambo  #123223
Cherry Cobbler  #122949
Other:  Basic Rhinestones
Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue
Heat Tool

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Pink Pirouette card base at 5-1/2″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut a piece of Pink Pirouette and of Melon Mambo at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Layer card stock together on the bottom cutting plate which is on your Magnetic OR Multipurpose Platform.  Position the Square Scallop Framelit and the next size straight-edge Square Framelit over the card stock layers.  Position the Framelits as desired to form a Frame and a center cut out.  You may not notice but I don’t have a lower Scalloped Edge on my Frame.  You could do a whole Frame and trim it and layer it to fit.  Anyway I used the Melon Mambo Scallop Frame and the Pink Pirouette center.
3.  Rub your Embossing Buddy over your Whisper White card stock.  Stamp 3 flowers of your choice from the Flower Shop stamp set on Whisper White card stock using VersaMark ink.  Cover with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder.  Put excess back into the jar.  Melt embossing powder with Heat Tool.  Stamp one more flower in VersaMark ink on the card stock.  Cover this one with Melon Mambo Embossing Powder.  Remove excess.  Melt with Heat Tool.  Punch out with the Pansy Punch.  Arrange in desired positions over Melon Mambo Frame and Pink Pirouette center to determine where to stamp sentiment.
4.  Take your Pink Pirouette center and sentiment stamp.  Stamp the sentiment in Black StayzOn ink.  Color in the Birthday with a Rose Red Marker.
5.  Adhere the Melon Mambo Frame and the Pink Pirouette Center to the card front in the desired position.  Now adhere the flowers in the desired positions.  I would have normally used Dimensionals on the center flower, but I glued it down because this card is for a child.
6.  Add Rhinestones of varied sizes to the flower centers.

Silver Beautifully Baroque Wedding Card

A friend of mine is getting married so I made a Silver Wedding Card using the Beautifully Baroque Stamp Set and Embossing Folder to coordinate with the Silver Gift Wrap.  I love the NEW Beautifully Baroque Stamp and Embossing folder.  I also decided to try sanding the Brushed Silver card stock.  It looks wonderful!  I hope you enjoy making one for someone special.

Love & Laughter w#128433  c#125477

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut two pieces of Brushed Silver card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ (card front) and 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (card base).
2.  Emboss the 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Brushed Silver card stock with the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder and your Big Shot.  Choose which side of the embossed card stock you want on front and sand it with the Sanding Block.  I found it worked best to use circular motions when sanding.  Brush off all sanding debris.  Adhere embossed card stock to card base.
3.  Stamp the large Beautifully Baroque image in VersaMark on Whisper White card stock.  Cover the VersaMark ink with Silver embossing powder.  Melt with Heat Tool.  Cut around embossed image with scissors.  Put Dimensionals on the back.
4.  Stamp the sentiment with Black StayzOn on Whisper White card stock.  Cut out with the Apothecary Art Framelit.  Put Dimensionals on the back.
5.  Put the Baroque Image and the Sentiment in the desired positions.  Remove Dimensional backings and adhere in place.
6.  Add Basic Rhinestones as desired.
7.  I added a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White card stock piece inside to write on.
8.  Admire your wonderful wedding card before giving to someone.

Happy Stamping!
