Highland Heather Wreath and Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine

I will always remember this wreath card, because it’s the first one I made with our NEW Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

Highland Heather Wreath

 

As a demonstrator, I was able to pre-order the machine August 4th, and who was I to turn down this opportunity! I was amazed when I received notice it was shipped on the 5th, and totally delighted when it arrived on the 6th. I quickly attached the handle, and then stared at it for a while. LOL. Isn’t it beautiful? I guess you have to be a card maker to fully appreciate it, but it’s a tool I can’t live without. The machine I’ve been using is similar, but it’s black, and old, and not rolling smoothly.

Just look at this beauty! Customers will be able to order it September 1st, so put it on your wish list. If you want it NOW, why not put it in your Starter Kit TODAY, and get free shipping? Contact me, suheilmohr@gmail.com.

 

I was anxious to see how it performed, compared to my old machine, and I’m delighted to report it is greatly improved. I decided that the first dies to roll through my machine would be two Wreath Builder Dies. I cut the first one from Highland Heather Cardstock, and with a name like that, I HAD to make a Highland Heather Wreath. Right?  I used Mossy Meadow Cardstock for the second die, and both came out clean with one, smooth, run through the machine. I’ve been in the habit of going back and forth several times, and adding shims, to get a clean cut.

See the numbered plates to the left of the machine? To cut with the dies, you first place #1 plate on the machine’s platform, followed by #2 plate, and one of the #3 plates. Then, you place the paper, next the die, and finally the second #3 plate. Now, you are ready to turn the handle, and watch it come out the other side! If you haven’t done this before, you are in for a treat, especially with this new machine. I’m warning you though, it’s addictive!

 

I kept today’s card very simple, gluing the wreath to wood from In Good Taste Designer Paper, 3 3/4″ X 5″. The wood is on a Gray Granite card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded in the middle at 4 1/4″.

The bow was made with Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, which I colored with a Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend. It’s so fun to have matching ribbon, and it’s easy with the Blends!

 

The sentiment, “You made my day!” is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set. I stamped it in VersaMark, sprinkled with White Embossing Powder, and set it with the Heat Tool. Then, I used my Paper Snips to cut the sentiment by hand, and glued it across the wreath.

 

This card doesn’t include dry embossing, but I want you to know that I tried it with the new machine, and the recommended sandwiching worked perfectly. I may be giving up my shims!

Stella the Sea Turtle

The focal point of this card was planned to be the sweet bird from the Birds & Branches Stamp Set, but I was interrupted by the UPS truck. So, I immediately opened my Stampin’ Up! box, and there I found a pack of Whale Of A Time Designer Paper. This adorable sea turtle popped out and said “me, me, me!”

Stella

 

My layout was from Freshly Made Sketches, along with the idea to use stripes. 

 

Prior to the sea turtle’s arrival, I used an Ornate Layers Die to cut the stripes from Forever Greenery Designer Paper, which I glued to a Pretty Peacock card base; very simple without even a layer.

 

I used  a Layering Squares Die for cutting a scalloped square from Whisper White Cardstock. After stamping the bird in Pretty Peacock Ink, I was deciding on her background when the UPS truck arrived. My dog is very good about letting me know when this happens. So, to continue, the sea turtle said her name was Stella, which she said would make a good story, and that the stripe paper would add to her cuteness. How could I argue with that? Setting the bird aside, she promised to stay still, while I cut her from the paper with my Paper Snips.

Stella told me her favorite thing to do was ride ocean waves, and we found the perfect paper for her background, easily cut with a Layering Squares Die.

 

Stella wanted this card to go to a “very special someone” who loves sea turtles. Guess where we found the sentiment…….in the Special Someone Stamp Set!  We stamped it in Pretty Peacock Ink on the white stripe, and our card was complete. I just hope the Birds & Branches bird forgives me.

Last A Lifetime

 

Instructions

Cut Sahara Sand Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, and fold at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Cut a layer of Subtles 6X6 Designer Paper in Soft Sea Foam, 3 3/4″ X 5″.

Stamp the sentiment, “May the memories of today last a lifetime,” in Sahara Sand Ink on the Soft Sea Foam Layer. I used the Stamparatus for placement and ink coverage.

 

 

Use the Lasting Elegance Die corner die, and matching edge die, to cut from Whisper White Cardstock. When cutting, have the edge die touching the corner die, and cut at the same time.

Using your Stampin’ Trimmer, trim the border to fit the Soft Sea Foam layer, and use tiny, tiny, tiny dots of glue to attach.

 

I love this Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, which was my Host Code gift in June. Remember me telling you how you can make it any color you wish? After snipping the length I wanted for the long tails, I simply colored it with a Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend. Because these are alcohol markers, it dries quickly, and doesn’t rub off.

The ribbon is held securely by a dot of Tombow Glue beneath the knot.

For extra embellishment, I added five little pearls.

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players.
