Meet Woven Heirloom and Floral Essence!

Good Monday afternoon!

I thought I introduce a bundle set combination today. Woven Heirloom and Floral Essence bundle form Stampin”up! make an easy card. I used again the new In Colors as well for this project. For this card I chose Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray ink and Seaside Spray cardstock for my base card. In addition I chose Pretty Peacock cardstock for the leaves and of course Whisper White cardstock for my second layer. Again I made my own display paper using a stamp from the Woven Heirloom set and Seaside Spray ink.

Let’s have a look:

I used Seaside Spray cardstock for my base card. It’s cut down to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.

The second layer is Whisper White cardstock. Cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″. I stamped this card using a stamp from the Woven Heirloom stamp set. I stamped the image with Seaside Spray ink.

Next I used the square shaped die from the Woven Heirloom bundle and cut a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock. I saved the small square and used the sentiment from that set to stamp it onto the cardstock with seaside spray ink. After I finished it I took the coordinating embossing folder and embossed the cardstock. That gave it a raised image. I glued the small stamped piece onto the finished Whisper white cardstock. Using Dimensionals on the back of the embossed frame I adhered that to the finished Whisper White cardstock.

Next I stamped two flowers from the Floral essence bundle on whisper white cardstock using Rococo Rose ink . I punched the flowers out with the coordinating punch. The leaves were punched out with the Leaf Punch. Pretty Peacock was the cardstock for the leaves. I adhered those together and glued that to the embossed frame. I stamped the message with Rococo Rose ink and cut that out using the round stitched shapes. I always like to ink the edges of my images with the coordinating color. I decorated the flower and the message with the 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots.

Petals and Flowers!

Hi everyone!

I thought I share another card this evening using the Floral Essence bundle set from Stampin’Up! And not to forget to mention the new 2019-2021 Stampin’Up! colors. I also included in this project the Leaf punch which is not a new product. The beauty with this Leaf punch is that it coordinates with the Floral Essence bundle. Lucky for me I didn’t have to do any cutting around tiny leaves. I’m sure you would appreciate this too. Definitely too tedious! The bundle comes with a coordinating flower punch, the Leaf punch is not included with this bundle. I thought I point this out. But super helpful! So thanks Stampin’Up for making our lives a little easier. This card makes a great graduation card.

These days I have decided to make my own display paper as you can see on this card. The material list is as follows for this card:

Whisper white thick cardstock – cut to 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ #140272 – $8.25

PRETTY PEACOCK 8-1/2 X 11 CARDSTOCK

Heirloom Design!

Hi There!

Another beautiful day to explore the new Stampin’Up! catalog. And look what I got today. The new Woven Heirloom Bundle. Of course, I had to play with this right away. This bundle comes with a challenge I had to find out and it took me a little while to figure it out. This bundle set comes with stamps, two embossing folders and two frame dies. Probably by now everybody knows that Stampin’Up! has separated themselves from their old manufacturer and since this a new product, it has the new embossing folders from the new manufacturer. YOU WILL NEED THE NEW 3D Embossing Folder Plate to work with the new-style 3D embossing folders (which are thinner than the old-style Dynamic folders). AVAILABLE NOW!!!!! Visit my online store at http://crazyaboutstampin.stampinup.net to order yours!

06.01.19_TH_FLYER_3D_EMBOSSING_PLATE_US
#149658 – $10.00 USD

After playing with what I had available at that time, I was able to shimmy the folder so that it makes a good impression. It took some playing with it. This card features the new Stampin’Up! colors as well. And as I already mentioned in my previous blog, I absolutely love the new colors. Below is an explanation on how to use the new embossing plate with the new Embossing folders.

How to Use the New Plate:

The new plate makes up the difference in measurement between our old-style Dynamic Folders and our new-style 3D Folders in 21 mm gap machines (similar to the machine we used to offer). The 3D Embossing Folder Plate replaces the Standard Cutting Pads in your 3D embossing folder sandwich for continued high-quality emboss results.

To create your emboss sandwich:

  • Use a die-cutting & embossing machine platform as a base; no matter which machine you’re using, use the standard platform which comes with your machine.
  • Use the 3D Embossing Folder with your paper in the middle.
  • Then use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate on top.

Given the differences in machines and platforms, you may still have to add a shim to get your desired embossing results. (You can also spritz your paper before embossing to maximize your embossed impressions.)

Without the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate, you will need to use several shims with the Standard Cutting Pad in your 3D embossing folder sandwich, depending on the die-cutting & embossing machine you use. Most machines will need between three to five sheets of cardstock to shim. Please be careful in how you shim; start out with fewer sheets first, then add sheets to get your desired results. Stampin’ Up! will not be responsible to replace products broken due to using a sandwich which is too thick for a machine.

More Floral Essence Card Ideas!

Happy Sunday!

Today I created another card using the beautiful Floral Essence Bundle and the new 2019-2021 In Colors. I made two different versions of the card and I let you be the judge of which one is better. They pretty identical however after looking at the first card I thought something was missing. I felt it was to plain and needed another layer. I’m absolutely amazed by the new colors. Especially the Rococo Rose and the Pretty Peacock. In my opinion the colors are just more vibrant. So let me introduce my first creation.

And this one is the second version.

Again I let you be the judge of it. The materials for this card are all from the new catalog which will debut June 4th. This set is just one of many bundle sets available.

For this card I used Thick Whisper White Cardstock cut at 4-1/4″ X 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″. The following layer is cut at 5-1/4″ x 4″ using Pretty Peacock cardstock. The third layer is the Rococo Rose cardstock cut to 3-3/4″ x 4-3/4″. I stamped the flower onto the cardstock as shown, stamped and cut the flower petals with the coordinating Punch using Rococo Rose ink and cardstock. I rounded the flower petals with the bone folder. The sentiment is stamped using the Pretty Peacock ink. I used the stitched shapes to cut out the sentiment. This card is easy and makes for a great friendship card.
