Today I am taking part in my first ever blog hop!! Yippee! I am so happy that you get to share this moment with me!
This group of ladies, Amy’s Inkin’ Krew, are an awesome group. I even got to meet some of them at Stampin’ Up’s Onstage Live event we just had in Salt Lake City, Utah. Now if that event, & meeting the ladies, wasn’t an absolute BLAST!!! If you ever get the chance to go to one of Stampin’ Up’s events, by all means take it!
Anywhoo, now to today’s blog hop….enjoy!
Today’s card starts with a card base of Fresh Fig card stock. On this I added some Eastern Palace Specialty DSP , adhering it with Snail. Be sure to cut it so the stripes are going the correct direction. I regularly forget to check and end up with an “extra” card front piece. LOL
The raised card front also uses the Fresh Fig card stock with a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock.
On the Tranquil Tide I used the Botanicals for You stamp set and some of the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, using my heat tool. Do your heat embossing BEFORE you adhere the Tranquil Tide to the Fresh Fig matte. Also, the Embossing Buddy is AWESOME for keeping extra areas of volunteer embossing powder from sticking around. Just wipe your card stock piece with it before stamping with Versamark ink and your embossing will come out neat and clean.
To make it pop a little I added some of the tiny Eastern Gold Foil stickers.
I then adhered the matted piece onto the base with Stampin Dimensionals.
On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the Botanicals for You stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink right on the card base itself. Then to jazz it up a bit I added one of the large foil stickers around the sentiment. Press and smooth the sticker where it goes over the letters a bit so you can see the letters that it covers better.
There you go, easy peesy as sliced bread.
