Patterned Occasions Whole Latte Love – Embedded Embossing Technique

I used the Embedded Embossing technique to create the background for my Patterned Occasions card.  Embedded embossing is a fun technique and my favorite embossing folder to use for this technique is Stampin' Up!'s Square Lattice folder.  Sale-a-bration is ending on March 22nd, so you only have 3 more days to get Stampin' Up's Pattern Ocassions stamp set (free with a $50 net purchase)!

Old:  the curved pink strips were left over from a stamp camp I have over a year ago.  The strips were left from the curved edges of the box template.  

As you can I see I very rarely through left overs away.  I have a 12 x 12 drawer that is getting full so I will have to start using them to make room for more.

Blossoms By Three Framed By Tulips!

This was the first card I made using Stampin' Up!'s new Blossom Triple Layer Punch (found on page 6 of 2011 Summer mini Catalog, check out the scrapbook page at the top). I am having fun with this punch and working on projects for my downline play date on May 21. I also used my Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder and Framed Tulip Textured Embossing Folder on this card — can you tell I double embossed the Basic Gray layer and everything that was adhered to that layer? I used shimmer paint to highlight the Framed Tulip border.

Because I Care – Friends Never Fade!

The last card of this series uses 4 different leftovers to complete the focal layer: a stamped image, a stamped and hand cut image, a punched shape, and a scrap of Marina Mist cardstock. Below is my new card, again using the Big Shot "Kiss" technique!

Look Out Dasher a Birthday Has Replaced You!

The background layer, left over from a Christmas card, makes an interesting background for this new card. I used the Party Hearty stamped pieces to with the Medallion background layer. My original card used the Dasher stamp, gold embossing and the Versamark Stampin' Mist technique on the Cherry Cobbler inked layer. Click HERE to see it.

Below I used the same Medallion background, glued on the stamped and punched leftovers, and then added the Big Shot Kissing Technique for a unique birthday card. Hope you like it!

Downline Meeting Cards: Imbedded Embossing and More!

Well, I have my pictures done and am back from vacation! I did not take pictures at my downline meeting (we were too busy stamping). So I now have finished the shoebox swaps cards brought by Carrie and Nancy (again I did mine after the meeting). This is Carrie Arsenault's shoebox swap:

Stampin' Up! Carrie Arsenault Embedded Embossing Square Lattice Folder Big Shot

Mine may be slightly different as I took the components and then made my card later. Carrie used the Flower Daisies #2 Die, Stampin' Up! Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Big Shot to create this card. The technique is embedded embossing, don't you love the effect?

The cards below are a case of a shoebox card brought by Nancy Muir (again I made my card the next day). I did not have the same stamps Nancy used on her card, so used something close. The first card uses the same colors used in Nancy's original card and the second adds more of my style to this technique: extra layer, the ribbon and punch.
