Welcome to the Pals July 2018 Blog Hop. We’re having a “Pattern Party”. This month our creations will feature our favorite Designer Series Papers and coordinating embellishments from the new annual catalog from Stampin’ Up!
You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
It was next to impossible to choose my favorite Designer Series Paper for this Blog Hop. But, I decided to go with the one I think is most unusual. Drum roll……………..it’s the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper! When I first saw this paper at On Stage in April, I could hardly believe my eyes. I started imagining all kinds of possibilities for this unique paper. The first card I want to share today is using the Laser-Cut Paper as a stencil.
Beginning this project, I placed a piece of the floral pattern on Whisper White cardstock, and used a Sponge Dauber with Powder Pink Ink. I held the “stencil” in place with my left hand, and daubed away with my right hand.
It would have been pretty as an entire card front, but I got carried away with the Detailed Trio Punch that’s in the Delightfully Detailed Suite (pp 38-39 in the catalog). So, I rounded the four corners of my stenciled piece, as well as the corners of my Thick Whisper White card base.
I was “delighted” to discover the flower shape in the stencil was very similar to the Eclectic Layers flower. See what I mean?
So, I die cut three Whisper White flowers, and lined them up on the left side.
The Thank You die was used to cut the words from Whisper White cardstock, blending in with the pattern.
My second card developed from left-overs. Remember how I sponge daubed on top of the Laser-Cut paper? Well, that Powder Pink pattern was too pretty to toss. So, with a snip, snip here, and a snip, snip there, it became my card front.
I used tiny dots of Liquid Glue to adhere it to Whisper White cardstock that I embossed with the Subtle embossing folder. Sahara Sand cardstock is the card base, and I tied the color in with the sentiment from Enjoy Life. The two smallest Layering Oval dies were used for “Thank you kindly.”
The cards could almost be twins, except I put the Detailed Trio Punch away, and left the corners square on the second card.
