Stampin’ Up! Embossed Eclectic Banners for You

Happy Monday, y’all!  I think this will be my last Monday post from Florida!  And – I won’t lie.  I’m really ready to go home.  Want to see my husband and Finn and the panthers and ponies.  Ready to play in the veggie garden.  🙂

If you were able to join my Facebook Live video last nice – thank you so much.  If not, here’s a link to the video on You Tube – enjoy!

I had a good time playing with the new Embossing Paste and the Naturally Eclectic bundle of goodies.  Along with a little bit of Banners for You.  Take a look-see:

As I said yesterday, I played across the middle on this week’s Stamp Ink Paper Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.

The layout itself was inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I used some pretty green paper from the Naturally Eclectic DSP for the card base, and did a little embossing on it with the new Embossing Paste.  My “stencil” was made by cutting the geometric die in the Eclectic Layers Thinlits from a piece of Thick Card Stock.  

I also made a couple of “stencils” by die cutting the flower from Eclectic Layers and embossing them on Thick Whisper White card stock.  I used some Powder Pink Ink Refill to color one batch of Embossing Paste and Lemon Lime Twist ink refill for the other.  I embossed a Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist flower on the middle Whisper White panel, then matted it on a piece of Powder Pink card stock.

I used a little Liquid Glue to run a length of Lemon Lime Twist 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon across the card front, then popped my art panel over that with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

I embossed another Eclectic Layers flower with Powder Pink-colored embossing paste on a scrap of Thick Whisper White card stock.  When it was dry, I cut it out with the appropriate die and then adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I ran another piece of ribbon across the whole panel – this time Powder Pink 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon – with some Fast Fuse and a Stampin’ Dimensional under the left end. My sentiment is from the Banners For You stamp set – I stamped the border image in Lemon Lime Twist and added the sentiment in Emerald Envy.  Then I cut it out with the matching die in the Bunch of Banners Framelits. and popped it over the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped a few flowers from Oh So Eclectic in Powder Pink and Lemon-Lime Twist.  For both “fill” images, I stamped them off once on a piece of scrap before stamping the Whisper White panel.

I matted the panel on Powder Pink and added it to my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Oh So Eclectic flowers on the front…

…and then added more of the Naturally Eclectic DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  There are so many things to do with this new Embossing Paste – and I love that we can color it with our ink refills, don’t you?  And I really love the entire Naturally Eclectic Suite.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Avant Garden Banner Thanks

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Another week begins!  We got our Christmas tree…half way down this weekend.  Too cold to get the big tree box out of the garage store room.  So it sits in white-lighted splendor.  Nekkid but for the lights.  I wish I had room to leave it up all year – I love the lights so much!!

I’ve mentioned that it’s cold.  By which I mean ridiculously cold.  Unless you’re an Australian Shepherd.

finn-on-the-porch-in-the-sunshine
I invited him back in three times.  He politely declined!  Just sittin’ in the sun, enjoying the day.  While mom freezes her hindquarters off (I wish!) trying to get him back in.

“Me.  It’s all about me!  Even have a picture frame that says so.  They love me so much…”

He did finally come in – even a fur-ball finally gets a little chilly!

So ever since our non-snow-lots-of-ice event of 2017, I’ve been thinking on this picture I took.

icy-tree-limb
I wanted to make a card inspired by this icy branch, so…I pulled out the Falling in Love DSP and used the design that is a…well – icy branch!  And I embellished it with some Copper embossed Avant Garden (free in the Sale-A-Bration flyer) flowers and a couple of sentiments from Banners for You.  Take a look-see:

avant-garden-banners-4-stamps-n-lingers
I used the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for my layout inspiration.

fms-269-sketch
To begin, I cut a small panel of Vellum card stock for my artwork.  I rubbed it a bit with my Embossing Buddy, then stamped the Avant Garden flower twice in Versamark.  I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed the image.  I lightly colored the flowers with my Sweet Sugarplum Stampin’ Write Marker, and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz.

avant-garden-banners-8-stamps-n-lingers
I adhered the embossed panel to a piece of Falling In Love DSP – using Liquid Glue only behind the embossed image to hide it.  Then I wrapped a piece of Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon around the panel – being sure that the edge of the Vellum was trapped under it.  Next came a piece of Blushing Bride 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon, with a piece of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim over the top, wrapped around the panel and secured in the back with scotch tape.

avant-garden-banners-2-stamps-n-lingers
I SNAILd the whole thing to a mat of Blushing Bride card stock.

My sentiment is from the Banners For You stamp set, stamped in Sweet Sugarplum on a piece of Very Vanilla and cut with a die from the Bunch of Banners Framelits set.  I used my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker to edge the banner, and secured it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I embellished the sentiment with a Classy Designer Button, adhered with Liquid Glue, and a small bow from Blushing Bride Solid Baker’s Twine.  To finish the card front, I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels.

avant-garden-banners-1-stamps-n-lingers
On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Banners for You in Sweet Sugarplum to a Very Vanilla panel.  Across the bottom, I stamped a couple of images from the Delicate Details stamp set (also a free Sale-A-Bration item!) in Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand.

avant-garden-banners-5-stamps-n-lingers
I SNAILd the panel to a Blushing Bride mat and into my Sahara Sand card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

For my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I stamped two more Avant Garden flowers in Sahara Sand on the front.  Then I used my Blender Pens to color the flowers with Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride ink, and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz…

avant-garden-banners-6-stamps-n-lingers
…and I added more of the Falling in Love DSP to the envelope flap.

avant-garden-banners-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  We’ve got some very very pretty stamp sets in the Sale-A-Bration flyer this time, don’t you think?  I love the flowers in the Avant Garden set and they go so nicely on the Falling in Love DSP.  Hope you like!
