Seasonal Wreath for #PCC355

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super fun Fall themed card for you for the Paper Craft Crew Weekly Sketch Challenge.  This week we have a very versatile sketch for you that you can create a lot of different cards with.  I used the Seasonal Wreath Stamp Set from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog to create my card for you.  Here's a look at my card.

And here's the inspiration image for my card.  You can play along over at the Paper Craft Crew website or just check out all the designs that the design team came up with with this sketch.  

Tips & Tricks: 

For my card I heat embossed the wreath image from the Seasonal Wreath Stamp Set in Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Then I took my sponge daubers and added ink to the wreath for a emboss resist technique.  As far as the inks I used they are as followed; Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Merry Merlot.  I went with nice Fall colors, I did throw in a little Rich Razzleberry just for fun.  
My card base is a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.  I added some of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper that was cut at 5 1/4 x 4 to the front of the card base.  I thought that the Pretty Peacock color complimented the colors in the embossed resist wreath very nicely.  I then added a scrap of Vellum Cardstock to the front of the card so that the wreath would have an anchor point.  I also added a little strip of the same designer series paper (this is the reverse side) under the wreath and made it into a fish tail banner.  
To finish off the card I popped the wreath up on Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and placed it over the vellum layer.  I stamped my sentiment onto a scrap of Cajun Craze Cardstock  and trimmed it out using my Paper Snips.  I cut around the grateful and then cut the two smaller sentiments into thin strips.  I added these to the wreath with a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then added a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels that I colored with my Bronze Stampin' Blend Marker and added a double bow that I made from a little Linen Thread.   I attached the bow with a Mini Glue Dot, and that finished off my card. 
 Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have enjoyed my little card and that you will give this simple emboss resist technique a try on your next Fall themed card.  I will see you again tomorrow for another fun little project.

Happy Stampin'

Amazing Life Good Luck Card for St. Patrick's Day

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing a card I created for St. Patrick's Day which is this Sunday.  I had so much fun creating this card and I used the Amazing Life Stamp Set from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  I did a little ink blending, and emboss resist to create this card.  Here's a look at today's card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I mentioned in the introduction that I used the Amazing Life Stamp Set.  I really wasn't kidding when I said that it was a very versatile set.  I started out with a piece of whisper white cardstock and a versamark pad.  I used the little four leaf clover stamp from this amazing stamp set.  I stamped this image over and over the card and used some gold embossing powder over them.  In the center of the card I inked up the sentiment that said good Luck in versamark and then used white embossing powder.  After everything was heat set and cooled it was time to do a little ink blending.  

For the ink blending I used Granny Apple Green, Call Me Clover, and Garden Green inks.  To blend the colors I used the makeup brushes that I shared with you last week.  I started out with Granny Apple Green ink at the top.  Once I had that done I added Call me Clover in the middle and then blended the two together.  At the bottom I repeated the process with Garden Green and blended it into the Call me clover.  Once I had everything blended on I buffed off the ink from the embossing powder with a tissue.  This removed any excess ink from the top of the embossed images.  Next I flipped on a little water from my stampin' spritzer and dried it with a paper towel after if sat for just a few.  
I then cut down the ink blended piece to 4 x 5 1/4.  I then added a white mat cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  This was then attached to a Call me Clover card base that was 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  For the inside of the card I added a piece of whisper white (4 x 5 1/4) and add the three thin strips that I had cut off.  This helped to add a little interest, as well as tied in the inside to the front.  

I hope that you have enjoyed my card for today.  You will find all the supplies listed below in the shopping list below.  Thanks for dropping bye and if this is your first time visiting welcome and I am glad that you are here.  If you are a returning viewer I am so happy your back..  Make sure that you be on the look out for my second post that will come out this afternoon as part of a blog up.
