Bee Mine: One Design, Two Outcomes

Hello stampers and happy Tuesday to you. Time has once again slipped through my fingers when it comes to blogging. I hope that you missed me!! Perhaps you have been a part of my Fourteen Days of Love video series. These gorgeous cards were a part of that, and I now also have a complete tutorial bundle for you to either get for free with a purchase OR if you are a part of my team. Otherwise you can purchase it on my blog here.

 

One Design, Two Outcomes

 

I love it when you can make one design and use it for two completely different purposes. This started out as an adorable framed art project. I thought it would be perfect to give to a loved one so they can put it in their work space and be reminded that they are loved. What do you think?

It can also be made into a card which you can then mail anywhere in the world!! We often forget to tell our people how much we love them.

Of course, I am all about options. The card also has two choices:  black mat or sweet sorbet mat?? Both have their charms as you will see.

Fun Little Bee Mine Tip

 

While the Bee My Valentine stamp set is adorable, the Bee Mine paper is over the top!!! You can cut myriad images out of this paper. Some of it is a little busy for my taste, so use it in small doses, OR cut out the adorable bees and use them as fun accents. For these cards I also fussy cut the jars and the honey pot. It really isn’t difficult and it makes for very affordable crafting.

The other great tip is to use white embossing on black cardstock for your sentiments. It really pops in contrast to the yellow and red backgrounds and it coordinates with the gingham ribbon. Repetition is a great design technique!

Gloriously Made Bouquet Card

Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. Gloriously Made is a stunning bundle that you may have overlooked in the annual catalog. The dies are my favourite things in this bundle but the stamps are also glorious, pardon the pun. This set is aptly named!

 

 

 

Gloriously Made dies combine for a lovely bouquet on this clean and crisp card.

 

The card above was inspired by Jenni Pauli a fellow demonstrator from Germany. I attended her 10 year stampversary event in May and she had a slimline card that inspired this one. I love the soft colours of Lemon Lolly and Soft Sea Foam.

 

Masking Technique Card

 

You can also use your dies from Gloriously Made to make your own acetate mask and then use it to make this stunning card. Bojo Blue, Old Olive and Vellum cardstock combine for a soft look.

With the card above and the card below, you can see how lovely the sentiments are when they are stamped in Versamark on black cardstock and then embossed in white. It makes for such a great contrast and makes up for the small size of the font. If you want to see a short video of how to do this technique, you can check it out here.

Tinted Embossing Paste Butterfly

Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. Today I have a beautiful tinted embossing paste butterfly card for you. If you have been following me on my YouTube channel, then you might know that I have been a little obsessed with embossing paste. Once you open a jar, you just want to keep playing. Want to see what I made??

 

Beautiful tinted embossing paste butterfly

 

First off:  a disclaimer. The Butterflies & Flowers layering decorative masks are no longer available. Every year Stampin’Up! “retires” some products and this is one such product. They have different masks available now but this was one I had on hand that would really show off the tinted embossing paste technique.

I first used a blending brush to make a solid butterfly image. Then I used the detailed image at the bottom to use with the embossing paste. Just two drops of pool party reinker were added to about a tablespoon of embossing paste. I put it in a little bowl and stirred it with the smallest palette knife. If you want to see the whole card being made, just watch the YouTube video tutorial at the end of this blog post.

Amazing Embossing Paste Trick with Trucking Along Bundle

Hello stampers and happy Friday. Today I am sharing a super fun technique with embossing paste. Did YOU know that Stampin’Up! sells embossing paste? My job as a Stampin’Up! demonstrator is to share with you all the hidden gems in our huge annual catalog. Even I forget sometimes about all the amazing products that we have. My embossing paste was hiding in the cupboard for a while too!

 

Amazing Embossing Paste Trick

 

A few days ago I created a post sharing my top five videos over the years. One of them was a technique that involved stamping on embossing folders. This inspired me to do something new with an embossing folder and I am sharing the result with you now. Are you curious?

What to do

 

First you cover your work surface with a piece of grid paper or computer paper. Put your card down and carefully spread embossing paste over your card front or cardstock layer using a palette knife. Set aside on a new clean surface. Clean your palette knife. If you don’t do this right away it will harden and dry making it difficult to clean.

Ink up your embossing folder, either side work for the exposed brick embossing folder. Press the embossing folder into the embossing paste surface of your card. Press down firmly and then carefully peel it away. Watch my video as seeing is believing!

Spritz the back of your cardstock with water so that it doesn’t end up curling. When your embossing paste is dry (this could take a few hours) press it down with a few punches stacked on top of each other. This helps flatten your card.

After the embossing paste is dry and the card is flattened you can add your other elements using either liquid adhesive or dimensionals.

Which is your favourite colour? Cherry cobbler, Pebbled Path or Copper Clay for the embossing paste embossed exposed brick wall?
