Stampin' Up! Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - BigShot sandwich and tips.

Hello friends. Today I have a quick and easy card for you as I wanted to show you how amazing and  multidimensional the beautiful new Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder is. You can find this folder on page 211 of Stampin' Up!'s new 2017 Annual Catalogue, or HERE in my Online Stampin' Up! Store.

These folders are thicker than our standard embossing folders (to accommodate the extra dimension), so here are a few tips to get a great result:

  • Just use one sheet of cardstock and spritz each side lightly with water before you put it into the folder.
  • Set up your BigShot sandwich with the BigShot base plate on the bottom, the folder next (with the spine going into the BigShot first), and then just one acrylic plate on top.
  • Roll the folder through the BigShot one way, and then while the very end of the folder is still under the pressure of the BigShot roller, roll back the other way and out.
  • If you are inpatient like me, you can dry any remaining damp spots on the cardstock with your heat gun.

Stampin' Up! have got a great video on how to use these folders:

 

I love the variation in depth of impression this Layered Leaves folder gives and can see I will be using it on lots of projects. Doesn't it look amazing in the new Incolour Lemon Lime Twist?

I have used a few other of my favourite new Stampin' Up! products on this card too. The new Berry Burst ink and cardstock, the beautiful new Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon, the new Pretty Label Punch and the coordinating Label Me Pretty stamp set. You can link to all of these products in the online store using the individual links at the end of my post.

The Pretty Label punch and matching stamp set comes in a bundle too, so that you can save 10% on the combined individual price. There are a massive 23 bundles in this years catalogue - find them all HERE in the bundles section of the online store.

Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team's Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 2

Graphic

It's Wednesday, so time for our Heart of Christmas Art with Heart Team showcase of Christmas creations for you. I'm finding this so fun and feel very accomplished to already have some Christmas cards ready for this year!

Today I wanted to use two of the new 2017 Stampin' Up! InColours with the Star of Light stamp set and coordinating Startlight Thinlits. I have used Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide. I love how these turned out.

I made one of each base colour, and mixed up the colours of the die cuts and stamping. These were pretty quick and simple to do and I think would make a good production line card.

The Tranquil Tide colour is quite dark, but the lemon Lime Twist really lifts and brightens it I think. I also like the look of the clear faceted gems and adhesive rhinestones with these colours.

I made this one second, and added a little extra stamping onto the Shimmery White piece behind the die cuts.

Stampin' Up! At Home With You and the beautiful doors of France.

Around this time last year  our cruise ship stop in Marseille). Paris was everything I dreamed it would be, and I could wander those streets for months I think. One of the things that I loved looking at and photographing (beyond the beautiful floral balconies) were the doors. They were so beautiful and ornate. Here's a beautiful one I saw at Aix En Provence, and there are some more ones from Paris at the end of my post.

Aix En Provence ornate door France

 

It is those doors I was reminded of  and inspired by when I saw the new At Home with Me stamp set / bundle with matching At Home Framelits in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I have a things about doors at the moment!

I'm also loving the new Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Stack. You get 48 6x6" woodgrain designs (4 each of 12 different double sided designs). I will be using this SO MUCH! It's great for stamping directly onto as I have here.

How pretty is the Berry Burst paper in the 12x12 Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper Stack? You also get the 4 other new InColours in the stack. The Brick Wall 6x6 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder makes a great textured background for this card.

Grab the 10% off pricing on Stampin' Up! bundles before it's gone!

Hello there. Today I wanted to highlight some price savings for you if you have your eye on any of these bundles. Even though some or all of the products in these bundles are carrying over to the new catalogue, the 10% off bundle pricing isn't. This means if you want to get these bundles at the best price, get in before the current catalogue ends on May 31st. After that the individual components will be available, but you won't save 10%.

Here's a look at and links to all the current bundles which will return to full price after the end of the 2016/17 Annual Catalogue and 2017 Occasions Catalogue. Just click on any image to be taken to that item in my Online Stampin' Up! store. If you are shopping online, don't forget to use this month's hostess code so that you can get a free gift sent out mid May.
