Big Shot embossing mats WOW!!

Good afternoon everyone,

Hope this finds you all well.  I’ve been busy in the craft room trying to get my Christmas cards finished still a work in progress.

I have been a little hesitant about using the new embossing mats but now that I have, I don’t think I can put them down!  How versatile are these little beauties!  All your framelits and thinlets can now become both embossed and cut!  Doubling the effects on your projects.  Check out this card I did using the Peaceful Poinsettia thinlets.  I hope you can see from the photo that it has embossed the image instead of just cutting it out.  I have then used the outline thinlet to actually cut the entire flower out,  I did it on whisper white cardstock but I then coloured it using my cherry cobler stampin blends for a shaded look.  You could just use Cherry Cobler or any colour cardstock.  The foliage is old olive cardstock but cut out using the sprig punch.  The background is the tufted embossing folder from the Annual Catalogue. The card base is Very Vanilla.  The sprig punch and the Peaceful Poinsettia are only available until 2nd January to if you would like to order these products, you had better be quick.  I also used the metallic gold thread and a strip of DSP across the middle of the card.

Peaceful Poinsettia

Good morning all,

Well despite not having cleaned my craft room, it will happen today some time, but as always happens when I get new products, I just have to try them out.  So here’s the latest the beautiful Peaceful Poinsettia bundle in the new Holiday Catalogue #149962 (photopolymer bundle) page 22 in the new cattie!!  I used the new Buffalo Check Background stamp #147794 page 38.  Such a versatile background stamp.  The colour of the background is Crumb Cake, one of my favourite Neutrals.  To colour the poinsettia and holly I used watercolour pencils.   I would have like to used blends but I didn’t have a Cherry Cobbler blend so I used water colour pencils.  That’s the great thing with Stampin Up there is always an alternative.  Don’t know if you can see the shimmer paint I sprayed on the card.  WOW I love this stuff!  Check them out o page 38 of the catalogue.  I used the Champagne Mist #147044 they are $14 for a small bottle but you only use such a tiny amount mixed in with alcohol (no not your good Gin or Scotch) I use Isocol rubbing alcohol and put a few drops of the paint in a water spritzer and mix with some Isocol.  It gives a beautiful shimmer to any projects.  The sentiment is heat embossed using the new in colour embossing powders (Lovely Lipstick).

We will be using this at the catalogue launch day on 21st October.  What? you haven’t booked!  Call me now to book in on 0419721561.   (hahahaha).

Well now I better go and clean my room up!!

Hope you like today’s card! Have a great day!
