Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Pile It On” – showcasing their card/project with layers of DSP and/or embellishments for any occasion. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
My favorite layering tools, lately, are the Ornate Layers Dies. Reading that a second time, sounds funny, but true.
To begin today’s card, I used the largest die in the set to cut my first layer from Regals 6X6 Designer Paper in the color, Garden Green. I love these papers, because you get four patterns of all the colors in the color collection, which you can see in my Product List below.
I glued my first layer to a Thick Whisper White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Do you see the rounded corners? I can’t believe I haven’t used this Detailed Trio Punch with this Ornate Layers Die before now!
Next, I cut a layer from Whisper White Cardstock, using another Ornate Layers Die, and attached it with Dimensionals. It was fun to make use of those left-over edges from Dimensionals.
My focal point is a beautiful flower from the Flowering Blooms Stamp Set. A dear friend gave me this stamp set, and I’ve been waiting to use it for this special blog hop.
The flower was colored using the “stamp to ink” technique, easily done with a Stamparatus. I placed the stamp on the lid of the Stamparatus, colored directly on the red rubber, and pressed the stamp to Whisper White Cardstock that was secured in place by magnets. The leaves were colored with Granny Apple Green and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers, and the petals were colored with Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends. You have to color a small amount at a time with Stampin’ Blends, because it dries quickly.
After coloring, I used its Flowering Die for cutting, and attached the flower to the white layer with Dimensionals.
To complete the card, I stamped “many thanks,” from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink, and used the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Die for cutting. For a final embellishment, I added three tiny pearls.
The Scripty Embossing Folder was used for the envelope flap (shown in the first photo), the final touch for my thank you card.
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on December 9th when our theme is “Goodbye September Mini Catalog and Hello January Mini Catalog.” Participants showcase their favorites from the retiring holiday catalog or new products from the new mini catalog. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft space.
