Touches of Texture in Cracked Glass

Everything old is new again, right?   It’s been sometime since I made a card using the Cracked Glass technique and at our last club class, we decided to use this technique and this is the result.

Stampin’ Up! used to carry a product called Glassy Glaze that you need for this technique but it was discontinued.  We used the UTEE that you can get from your local hobby store to produce the cracked glass effect.

For the cracked technique, we stamped the images on the Whisper White card stock.  Then cover the entire piece with Versamark and then sprinkle the UTEE over it and heat with the heat tool.  While it is still warm, add another layer of UTEE and heat again.  Repeat this process for a total of 3 runs.  Place in the freezer for a few minutes and gently “crack” the image that provided a cracked glass effect.  You can add more texture to your art piece by sponging one of the colors used for the stamped images into the cracked grooves.

We used the new Oh My Stars embossing folder for the background layer.  The stamp set is Touches of Texture and the ink colors are Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful stamping day!

Butterfly Shaker Card

Who doesn’t like butterflies?  Especially a butterfly shaker card?

The base card stock is Blushing Bride with the Fluttering embossed Very Vanilla for the first layer.  If you don’t have the Falling In Love DSP from the Occasions Catalogue, it really is a must have with all the beautiful subtle colors in the package.  The strip across the centre, layered over a piece of Blushing Bride card stock,  is one of the patterns and another pattern is used inside the shaker portion.

I used the Layering Squares Framelits to create the frame for the shaker portion and the sequins are from the Fancy Frost Sequins.

SUPPLIES:

  • Paper:  Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Falling In Love DSP, Acetate Sheets
  • Accessories:  Fluttering Embossing Folder, Bold Butterfly Framelits, Butterflies Thinlits, Embossing Buddy, Fancy Frost Sequins, Foam Adhesive Strips.

Stampin’ Up! White Christmas

White Christmas cards – I love making these cards and recently had a class for this year’s group of cards.  Here’s one from the group.

white-christmas-2016-wreathI hadn’t used the Holly embossing folder that came out in the Annual Catalogue and was awed by the beauty of it.  The Mini Jingle Bells from the Holiday Catalogue were perfect for this card.  There are  30 silver and 30 red bells in the package so you can make lots of projects using them.

Stampin’ Up! Number of Years Shaker

We laugh when my card samples for my classes often show that I have a light hand when stamping the images.  For some reason, I had a heavy hand with the sand when I was making this Number of Years shaker card.  I’m almost embarrassed to share it with you but I love the colors so here goes.    Don’t laugh too hard!   Ai ya!  It looks like the flowers are sinking into all that sand!  LOL.

Number of Years Shaker

I started with a Whisper White card base 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ .  The focal Whisper White panel is cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″.  I cut a circle using the new Layering Circle Framelits  and embossed it with the new Petal Burst embossing folder (it’s beautiful).   The flowers from Number of Years are stamped onto a piece of Whisper White card stock and adhered onto a panel of Daffodil Delight measuring 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ and then onto a panel of Flirty Flamingo measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″.  I added Foam Adhesive Strips around the stamped flowers and dumped in the sand!  I cut a square of Window Sheet and adhered it to the back of the white panel and added dimensionals around the edges of the white panel and adhered it over the Daffodil Delight panel.  I added some Daffodil Delight ribbon and tied a bow around it.  The sentiment is from Circle of Spring.  The card is finished with a stamped Flirty Flaming butterfly from Papillon Potpourri.

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamps:  Number of Years, Papillon Potpourri, Circle of Spring
  • Paper:  Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo
  • Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Wild Wasabi
  • Accessories:  Petal Burst Embossing Folder, Layering Circles Framelits, Window Sheets, Foam Adhesive Strips, Daffodil Delight ribbon, 1″ Circle Punch, 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Butterfly Punch

Thanks for dropping in on this beautiful day!

Love & Affection and Layering Squares Framelits

In just two more days the new catalogue will be launched and these fabulous new items will be available to order.

The Layering Squares Framelits have 19 square framelits – 10 scallop squares and 9 square edges which all nest to form great combinations of layering.  The largest scallop square measures 3″ x 3″ and the smallest is 3/4″ x 3/4″.  The largest square edge measures 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″ to 1″ x 1″.

There is also a great combination of new textured impressions embossing folders called Floral Affection (you get two folders) that pairs well with the Love & Affection stamp set.

In today’s card I married the outgoing Blackberry Bliss In Color card stock, ink and ribbon with these three new products and I just love the crispness of the card.  There is a scallop framelit that would have provided a smaller frame for the first layer, but I used the one size larger to give it more definition.

Love and AffectionfvThe countdown is on for only for the launch of the new catalogue but also the last day to purchase your Wish List items from the current catalogue.  After midnight tomorrow, they will no longer be available so don’t hesitate and be sure to pick up your favourites before they go.

Shop MY ONLINE STORE HERE for all your Stampin’ Up! products.  We’re open 24/7 just for you!
