Embedded Embossing Technique

PPA 302

I recently came across a card I made in the past that used the Embedded Embossing Technique.  It made me realize that it’s been a while since I’ve showcased that technique.  Here it is on a card made for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge.

Stamp Set – By the Tide, Crazy About You
Cardstock – Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Whisper White, Cherry on Top DSP
Ink – Bermuda Bay
Accessories – 3/4″ and 1″ Circle Punches,  Word Window Punch, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Stitched Ribbon, Glue Stick, Snail Adhesive, Stampin Dimensionals

Tip for Embedded Embossing Technique:  The punched circles were adhered to the Daffodil Delight Cardstock with glue stick adhesive before embossing it with the Big Shot.

Navy and White are Classic

Sharing in Your Sorrow

I am involved with a Card Ministry at my church; cards are sent to members of the congregation when needed.  New Baby, Thinking of You, Get Well, and Sympathy are sent out to let people know that their Church Family remembers them.

Our stash of Sympathy Cards has been depleted and I designed this quick and easy card.  I’ll make several more changing the Designer Series Paper.  We are planning a card making event and I like to keep the cards simple so new stampers are successful when they come stamp with us for the first time.

Stamp Set – Thoughts and Prayers
Cardstock – Night of Navy, Whisper White, Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP
Ink – Night of Navy
AccessoriesFloral Affection Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Snail Adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals

I think the new embossing folder looks elegant when it is the focal point of the card.  Change the sentiment and it would make a beautiful birthday card also.  Don’t you just love the Navy, Crumb Cake and White color combination?  I’m thinking about having a Navy and White Card Class – what do you think?

Shop on-line for your stamping/memory keeping supplies.  The items underlined above are in the 2016-2017 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog and will be available for purchase on June 1st.

Shaker Frame Photo Tutorial

Last week, I had a request for a tutorial on how to make a Shaker Frame Card.  So…. I made another shaker card yesterday and took photos of each step as I was creating the Shaker Frame.

Layering Squares for Shaker Card

Layering Squares Framelits used to create frame.

Be sure to skip at least one size framelit so your frame is wide enough.
(you don’t want the adhesive strips to show from behind the frame)

Shaker Card Frame

Frame is ready.

I used the Layering Squares Framelits but you can also use Circles or Ovals.
Just be sure to use Framelits that are 2 sizes apart.

Adhere Window Sheet

I used Snail Adhesive to adhere Window Sheet to back of frame.

Don’t flip your frame over yet.  Add the Foam Adhesive first.

Foam Strips on back of Window Sheet

Foam Adhesive Strips added to back side of Window Sheet/Frame.

The Adhesive Strips will be available in the 2016-2017 Annual Stampin’ Catalog starting June 1st.

Add Shaker material on stamped image

Place glitter and sequins on stamped image.

Make sure shaker material isn’t too close to the edge.
If anything gets between the Adhesive Strip and the stamped image  the glitter/sequins might fall out.

Place Frame over image

Remove paper backing from Adhesive Strips and gently place frame on top of stamped image.

If everything is in the right place, your shaker material will stay put!  🙂

Now, the Shaker Frame is ready to be added to a project.  Below you can see the card I created with my Shaker Frame.

See my original blog post  for list of products used on this card.

Give it a try  – you can even add a “shaker element” to your scrapbook pages.  I think it would be especially neat to use sand  from your beach vacation in a shaker frame!  Need stamping/scrabpbooking supplies?  Shop On-Line here.  I’d love to have your business!
