Beautifully Baroque Embossing meets the Mosaic Punch

I am loving the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder and decided to try using the Mosaic Punch with it.  This is a pretty quick and simple card to make which can be used for any occasion.
Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder Meets the Mosaic Punch

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Itty Bitty Banners w#132022  c#126257
Ink:  Bermuda Bay
Card Stock:  Coastal Cabana
Bermuda Bay
Big Shot:  Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder #130917

2.  Run a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Bermuda Bay card stock through your Big Shot using your Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder.

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!

We made this Oh Whale Card in my Stamp Class on Friday.  This is a cute Children’s Card that can be used for any occasion.  I really enjoy the coordinating Clearlit to cut out the Whale and other little things like the fish and anchor.  My grandson was over last week as I was making this card.  He stamped and die cut his Whale.  We had to put on a Googly Eye instead of just leaving the the eye white.  I have included the numbers for the items I used that are also Digital for use with My Digital Studio.

These are the cards I made with the Welcome Kit.  When you join My Paper Pumpkin you will get the Welcome Kit the first month, then you will get the Kit of the Month the next month.  You cannot catch up on missed Kits.  If you decide to upgrade or embellish your Kit, you can use your own supplies from your stash.  If you make all four cards in the Welcome Kit the same it will take you about 30 minutes.  It took me about an hour and a half to make these four cards.  Part of the time was spent thinking of how to use all the supplies in the Kit but make the cards look different.

These things are included in the Welcome Kit:  4 envelopes, 4 gray/white card bases (already scored), 4 light-colored card fronts, 1 sheet of self-adhesive die cuts, 4 buttons, 2 Clear Mount stamps, 1 Clear Mount Block D, 1 Basic Gray Stampin’ Spot ink pad (you can reink Stampin’ Spots with ink refills so you can use them for a long time.), Instructions in 4 languages with a Photo on the front.

Card 1.  Here is the card I made following the directions included in the Kit.

My Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit-Card 1Card 2.  I used the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  (Note:  you will have to trim either the top or bottom of the card because the embossing will distort it and make it look crooked.)  Cut the light card front paper at 2-3/8″ x 4″.   Stamp “Hey there” on part of the light colored print that is leftover.  Punch out with a Large Oval Punch.  Punch an Extra-Large Oval out of Lucky Limeade.  Adhere to card front with Dimensionals.  I also used Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine to tie the bow in the button.  I adhered the Button with Glue Dots.
My Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit-Card 2
Card 3.  I embossed the light card front with the Chevron embossing folder.  I also stamped the “Hey There” on part of the left over card front from Card 2 and punched it out with an Extra -Large Oval Punch.  I sponged the Oval with Lucky Limeade ink and then adhered it to the card front with Dimensionals.  I also used Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine in the Button.
My Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit-Card 3
Card 4.  I used the Window Frames Framelit to cut the card front this time.  Then stamped the “Hey There” directly on the Window Frame.  I also used the Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine to tie a bow on the Button again..

5.  Adhere shaped Pop-Up Posy flower in the desired position with either Glue Dots or Dimensionals.  Adhere two other flowers to desired corners.  (Next time I am adding buttons to the flower centers.)  Adhere decorated embossed label to card front with either Glue Dots or Dimensionals.
6.  Admire your fun little card!  Hand delivery is a must with this 3D Flower Card.

Happy Stamping!

Blossom Petals Sunflower Punch Art Card

I have really been in the mood for Spring so I made a Sunflower using the Blossom Petals Punch.  It is a pretty quick card to make and reminds me of hot Summer Days as I sit here feeling chilly in my long-sleeved sweater.  We made this card at my 3D Flower Class on Friday.  I hope you enjoy making it!  I made a similar card for my daughter-in-law’s birthday last year.  As usual, you can change the colors and the sentiment to make you happy!  This is the TRUE advantage of making your own cards!
Blossom Petals Punch Sunflower

Stamps:

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Summer Starfruit card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Chocolate Chip layer at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Adhere to Summer Starfruit card base.
3.  Cut your Whisper White layer at 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Run through your Big Shot using the Argyle embossing folder.  Adhere to Chocolate Chip Layer.
4.  Punch 9 of the long thin Blossom Petals using a 2-1/8″ strip of Daffodil Delight card stock.
5.  Shape your Blossom Petals.  Take one Blossom Petal and your Thin handled paint brush (or Bone Folder) and lay it down the center of the Blossom Petal.  Fold the Petal sides up so it is rounded down the center of the Blossom Petal.  Now take your paint brush handle and curve each side of the Blossom Petal so it is slightly rounded.  Repeat with the other 8 Blossom Petal.
6.  Place a Glue Dot in the center of the bottom edge of your Whisper White layer.  Put a Glue Dot on the top center back of FIVE Blossom Petals.  Set aside with the Glue Dots facing up.  Take your first Blossom Petal and place it with the narrow tip on the Glue Dot and the Blossom Petal facing straight up.  Place the next two along the bottom edge so these three Blossom Petals form an upside-down T.  Place the last two Blossom Petals with Glue Dots on in between the three Blossom Petals that form a T.
7.  Place another Glue Dot in the bottom center on top of the other one that now is covered with Blossom Petal tips.  Place a Glue Dot on the center back of the remaining FOUR Blossom Petals so the Glue Dot will adhere to the bottom layer of Blossom Petals where they touch.  Place each Blossom Petal so the top is in between the lower layer of Blossom Petals as shown.
8.  Punch half a 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle from Chocolate Chip card stock.  Run it through your Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder.  Adhere to your Sunflower with Glue Dots.
9.  Now for your sentiment.  I will give the dimensions I used for the Perfectly Penned Happy Birthday.  Cut a strip of Daffodil Delight at 1-3/8″ x 5-1/2″.  Cut a strip of Chocolate Chip at 1-5/8″ x 5-1/2″.  Stamp your sentiment in the center of your Daffodil Delight strip.  Use your Square punch to make the “Banner” ends.  Adhere to your Chocolate Chip strip using SNAIL making sure to leave enough space at each end so you get a point instead of a flat part when you trim the Chocolate Chip ends slightly larger than your Daffodil Delight ends using scissors.  Adhere this banner using Dimensionals.
10.  Admire your Sunflower card!

Floral District Easel Card with Scallop Punch Flower

I made this Easel Card for a new member of my group using Floral District Designer Series Paper and a Scallop Punch Flower.  Easel Cards are so simple to make and they impress others.  Have fun making one of your own!

Punches:  2-3/8″ Scallop Circle #118874
1-3/4″ Scallop Circle  #119854

Other:  Victorial 5/8″ Crochet Trim #118481
3/16″ Brad
SNAIL
Dimensionals
Glue Dots
Bone Folder
Paper Piercing Tool

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Rich Razzleberry card base at 4-1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 3″ and 5-1/2″.   2.  Cut your Rich Razzleberry card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Cut your Floral District Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Also cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock 3-3/4″ wide x 1/4″ taller than your sentiment card stock.  (You can do this after you have stamped your Sentiment.)
3.  Color your sentiment with your Rich Razzleberry and Garden Green Markers.  Stamp on Whisper White card stock.  Cut card stock to fit the sentiment (no wider than 3-1/2″)  Adhere to the Rich Razzleberry sentiment layer.  Adhere in place with SNAIL.
4.  Punch 1 Rich Razzleberry Scallop with each Scallop Punch.  The following technique is called the “Faux Suede Technique.”  Crunch/Roll them up in the smallest little ball you can.  Now use your Bone Folder to smooth out the wrinkles and break down the card stock fibers until you can see it separating into two layers.  Gently peel the layers apart so you have two scallops.  (Note:  I found Rich Razzleberry card stock harder to separate than some of the other colors.  I ended up punching 2 of each size scallop since they tore when I separated them.)  Do this with all your Scallops so you have 2 of each size.  Now roll them up into little balls again.  Kind of smooth them out.  Layer them from largest to smallest and center as well as possible.  Use a Piercing tool to pierce a hole through the center.  Insert brad of your choice.  Crinkle each Scallop Circle as desired to form your flower.
5.  Decide where to place the Scallop Flower and the ribbon.  Tie the ribbon around the Designer Series Paper.  Adhere the Scallop Flower with Glue Dots.  Adhere this layer to your 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card front by putting your SNAIL on the Rich Razzleberry card front.
6.  Put SNAIL on the 3″ end of the card base.  Adhere the bottom of your card front to the 3″ end of your card base.
7.  Stamp your sentiment and either cut it out or punch it out.  Decide how far back you want the easel part of your card to be.  Adhere this sentiment with Dimensional in the position desired to hold up your card front.  You now have your Easel Card made.

Enjoy making your own Easel card!

Blossom Punch meets Sycamore Street

I decided to use the Blossom Punch two different ways on the same card with some Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper.  I was inspired to make this card browsing Pinterest.  They used Framelits or Nestabilities.  I am in the mood for flowers.  This winter has been way to COLD for me this year!  We are expecting snow again tonight and I live in southern Arizona where it usually snows just once a year and we have maybe 14 days of cold weather in the winter.  I don’t think we have had 14 days of pleasant weather this winter.  So here is a card with some flowers to remind me that Spring will come and the weather will hopefully be warmer.

Oh Hello in Cherry Cobbler

Th Oh Hello stamp set is so versatile.  You can get a lot of different looks using it.  This card originally started out trying to use some More Amore Designer Series Paper for the card front.  I tried several different variations and then decided to skip the card front and try everything on the Cherry Cobbler card base.  I really like it!  I hope you have fun when you make it!
