Technique Thursday Stampin Up Your Perfect Day Heat Embossed Wedding Card

Thursdays posts will be somewhere I will be showcasing a technique or two.  From some of the new trendy ones that are popping up in the crafting world, to some of the good old favourites.  For todays post I have followed on from my last Technique Thursday post with heat embossing.

For the New Two Card

Your Perfect Day Wedding Card

For this Wedding Card I took a piece of Perfect Plum A4 Cardstock and cut it at 5 7/8 inches and scored it at 4 1/8 inches.  Taking some of the gorgeous Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum I cut this down to 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches and adhered this to my card base with some discreet dots of Tonbow Mono Multi Glue behind all the hearts.  For my main image piece I stamped the Wedding Cake image from the Your Perfect Day Stamp Set on to some more Perfect Plum Cardstock with some Versamark Ink.  I covered this image with some of the Stampin Silver Embossing Powder and melted this with my Heat Tool. I can’t tell you how lovely this embossing powder is, it is my first time using it and it is gorgeous!!

I decided to use some of the beautiful embellishments from the Artisan Embellishment Kit for my card.  I first adhered one of the paper doilies to the back of my main image and popped it up on my card base with some Stampin Dimensionals. I took some of the gorgeous purple velvet ribbon from the kit and by cutting a small slice out of the edge of my card thread the ribbon through and round my card front a few times.

For the New Two Card

Stampin Silver Heat Embossed Powder

To finish my card off I pressed my Versamark Stamp pad on to some scrap card stock and covered it with some more of the Silver Stampin Embossing Powder and melted this with my heat tool. I punched out a heart from the Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack and popped this up on my image with a Stampin Dimensional. Finally I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and that is it for this week!

Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours and One Tag Fits All Card Series It’s True

So Day two of this little series/love affair with the Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper from the SAB catalogue. I am so happy, my first ever card series!!

Today I decided to try blending three shades of one colour so I grabbed my Blackberry Bliss, Perfect Plum and Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink pads and got sponging with my Stamping sponges, moving from the darkest to lightest shade and blending into each other.

For my card base I used a piece of A4 Perfect Plum cardstock cut at 5 7/8 inches (14.8cm) and scored at 4 1/8 inches (10.5cm) to which I adhered my piece of beautifully coloured DSP measuring 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8inches (14.3cm x 10cm).

I pulled out my One Tag Fits all Stamp Set and my Note Tag Punch.  I punched a tag from some Whisper White cardstock and some Wisteria Wonder cardstock. I stamped the “It’s True I Love You” image onto the Whisper White tag and offset layered this onto my Wisteria Wonder tag and finished this with some Blackberry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon. I finished the tag with some Basic Rhinestones Jewels and popped it on to my card front.

For the inside I kept it pretty simple, just a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches (14.3cm x 10cm) on to which I stamped some small hearts from the ever so versatile Perpetual Calendar Stamp Set which is a must have in my opinion, mind you lots of things are! I used the three ink colours again and used the stamping off technique.
